    • Description

      This gentle cleanser is anything but ordinary, removing make up and impurities as it retains your skin’s moisture – unlike some harsher cleansers, there’s no need to worry about tightness after using this.

    The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser

    The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser Reviews

    Not suited for sensitive skin
    It melts all of the make up really fast but, unfortunately, it leaves my skin red and irritated. I have combination skin. Doesn't have a strong smell which I like.
    Squalene
    Decent make up remover/cleanser. Such good value. Face feels clean and not too tight afterwards. Easily rinses off with water. Gets waterproof eye makeup off too. It's very gentle.
    It does what it says
    I love cleansers in general and this product was no disappointment. My skin feels incredibly polished and like skin after I use it. I would love if it came in a bigger size. Also note that I rarely use makeup, I just like how it makes my skin feel.
    The best cleanser!
    This cleanser just melts the make-up away and leaves your skin feeling so soft! I have never used a product before where all of my make-up is removed in one go. Definitely my all-time favourite cleanser.
    Squalane Cleanser
    I love this cleanser. Not only does my skin seem soft and luminous after using it but the price point is extremely good for the quality of the product. I will be reordering the larger size next. Such great value for money, you can't beat The Ordinary!
    Great!
    The best cleanser I’ve ever used. It melts the most stubborn makeup and leaves skin soft and smooth with no residue. I wipe off with a muslin cloth and it works a treat. I just wish they did larger tubes!!
    Doesn't do anything
    I was really excited to try some of The Ordinary products, however, I was so disappointed in this one. It doesn't remove the makeup properly, I had to use another cleanser afterwards as this one would leave lots of the makeup on the face (sometimes when I only had powder on). I ran out of it really fast and was disappointed. It also dries out the skin.
    My Fave Cleanser
    I love this cleanser, great at removing make-up and leaving my skin feeling soft. Only wish the bottle was a bit bigger as 50ml is quite a small bottle for a cleanser I use morning and night.
    Really good
    It's a great makeup remover that leaves my skin clean without stripping it. It dissolves makeup just perfectly without irritating my eyes and my sensitive skin feels just great after this cleanser. I'll definitely repurchase it, and I wish The Ordinary offered it in a larger tube... 150 ml? Would be a dream come true!
    Brilliant... but!
    Great cleanser, removes every scrap of make up leaving the skin soft and smooth. Only complaint is the amount of product. Although it appeared to be sealed, the container seemed half empty when it arrived and having used it for barely 2 weeks it is now almost gone completely.
    Great
    As good as anything I've used. Silky and gentle.
    Amazing
    Double cleansing is my religion and I loved this. Most oil or balm cleansers are either cheap and bad or good and overpriced. This is cheap but reeeeally good, like better than some of the most popular ones. This leaves no residue! I prefer this to the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleanser! My only issue is that the size is way too small for an oil cleanser, should be like double or triple the size, it runs out for me in like 3 maybe 4 weeks.
    One of the best!
    I use this as part of my double cleansing routine. Love how it doesn’t strip the skin, it really is gentle, my face feels soft afterwards. But it takes a while to turn into oil tho... gotta really work it out. That part really baffles me. I probably squeezed a little too much. But once it’s nice and oily, it removes all traces of makeup effortlessly! Doesn’t sting the eye even. Already on my 3rd!
    Works great and doesn't irritate my eyes
    This is a great product, at a great price. I've been using Clinique's Take the day off, which was super effective but harsh on my sensitive eyes. I tried this and it is as effective in removing all make up, including waterproof mascara - just needs a bit gentle insistence - and my eyes love it. Plus, it is half the price per ml. So a great product with great results at a great price, what more would I ask for? I'm waiting for it to be restocked so that I can repurchase before I run out of it. PS: I would really appreciate a larger size!
    Good Cleanser
    The texture is great. Once I work it into the skin, it becomes a bit oily and breaks down makeup.
    I never knew how much I needed this
    This takes off your makeup (I wear Double Wear) and preps it for 2nd step cleansing. No irritation, feels luxe, not overly oily either. Great product all round.
    The Ordinary cleanser
    Great cleanser, great price.
    Will be repurchasing
    This is what I would call a life-changing product - really love how soft it makes my skin feel while taking off my medium/heavy eye make up.
    Nice!
    Just try it! Absolutely gorgeous!
    Fab cleanser
    Fab cleanser, no scent, gentle but effective. I will repurchase again and again.
    The ordinary
    Fabulous product at fabulous prices and by the way the best site I have used well done
    Broke out in spot
    I loved how nice the product felt when applying but unfortunately it did not agree with me. I brought this as a cheap alternative to get me by until payday but it broke me out in spots.
    Brilliant Cleanser
    I absolutely love this cleanser; I have difficult combination skin, that is very prone to clogged pores and blemishes, yet also dehydrated in places. The cleanser has a lovely texture, which melts from being cream/balm-like to a soft oil. It rinses completely clean, without residue, which I love! My skin always feels properly cleansed, including my clogged pores. It's also a wonderful cleanser to massage in for a deep clean, due to the lovely texture. Definitely the best cleanser I have used to date.
    My Skin Felt Summer Soft In The Winter
    I’m not an expert on creams, the last I used was the Nivea two in one toner and cleanser but this made my skin feel so soft. It’s winter so my skin has been dry and this gave moisture back to my face without making it feel greasy. It was very easy to make the cream turn into an oil consistency however a little goes a long way in my experience.
    It's a keeper
    I don't wear makeup at all but I use sunscreen daily, so although I've never wanted to use a balm I thought I'd try this. It's perfect! It goes from a thick cream to an oily, comforting balm that spreads really easily on my skin, cleaning it of all traces of SPF and any other pollutants my skin encounters during the day. It never feels harsh or leaves my skin feeling stripped. Just nice and clean and ready for my night routine. And for this price ... you can't beat it.
    Mixed feelings
    It's not a great cleanser, or it just didn't work well with my skin. I don't know. I won't buy this again.
    Perfect but...
    Cleanser is perfect, but the price for 50 ml is extremely high, if you compare to price of 50 ml of any other cleanser, this one has a price typical for luxury goods
    Not sure...
    I love the concept of the product and I love the brand, but it feels like it leaves a layer of grease and doesn’t remove makeup as deeply as other oils. (Bodyshop for instance) Very inexpensive!
    Amazing
    This has to be my favourite cleanser. Yes the price is a bonus but the only other cleanser to leave my skin this soft is Emma Hardie. I cant agree more, please make bigger sizes!
    Love this!
    I used to use Clinique's cleansing balm but when it ran out I had a week to go before payday so couldn't afford to replace it so tried this instead - I'll not buy the Clinique stuff again as this is equally as good and so much cheaper. Lasts ages and takes off all my masses of mascara without stinging my eyes. Sorry Clinique, I did love you but I love my squalane even more.
    Wow!
    I'm a sucker for balm cleansers, my usual rotation is Clinique's take the day off, Eve Lom, EH Moringa Balm and more recently DE Slaii. After using this cleanser, it is the softest my face has ever felt after cleansing, I will definitely be purchasing the bigger size, I'm hooked!
    Amazing product
    I was so keen to try out this product since it was announced because I LOVE The Ordinary brand and this did not disappoint - in fact, it impressed me so much. It really is so gentle on my skin and doesn't dry it out at all. My face feels so soft and hydrated afterwards which is amazing. As for removing makeup... YES! It did a fantastic job removing my makeup and I was shocked. This product definitely does everything it claims to do and I absolutely love it. I will definitely purchase it again
    The best
    Love, love, love. I advise everyone to try! I'm afraid mine will be over before it comes back in stock :(
    Great product
    Love this cleanser. Works really well and leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised.
    Amazing
    Amazing. Will stock up in future. More pleasant than Glossier Milky Jelly (nicer smell and less invasive).
    The ordinary cleanser
    Great cleanser, great price.
    Favourite cleanser
    This is my favourite cleanser I have ever used. Cleans and removes make up without stripping the skin and without making it feel dry. Absolutely love it. I have sensitive dry skin.
    cool
    I love it!!! I take off my makeup with water from the E-cellar, and then use it for cleaning, because I like to do double cleansing.
    New favourite
    My 13 yo daughter and I both LOVE this cleanser and just made 2nd purchase. I am picky with my cleansers preferring an oil like Bare Minerals or Shu Uemura (if feeling rich), but this is fantastic. Removes every trace of mascara, doesn’t sting our eyes (we’re both sensitive) and leaves skin feeling soft and moisturised. 50ml is great for traveling, but please The Ordinary do offer a bigger one soon!
    So goooood!
    I love it!!!I remove my make up with mi-cellar water and then I use this for cleansing, because I like to double cleanse. It's really good as a cleanser, I bought 2 directly 2 and I am so glad I did. I will repurchase!
    Amazing
    If you have dryish skin and stubborn make up this is for you! I am amazed at how easily my Japanese waterproof solid mascara comes off. Only downside is the bottles a little small!
