So many good reviews about this product ... and this is another one.
This product is so good! Very gentle on the skin, leaving the skin really soft and smooth, yet clean. I'm so glad I purchased the large size.

It's ok


This is an o.k cleanser. Make sure you read the instructions before using it. It's quite hydrating and doesn't leave your skin feeling tight. However, I feel other cleansers I've used have done a better job at removing all make up and dirt from my face. I use a number of products by The Ordinary and I'm a big fan of the brand but this cleanser just didn't do it for me.
  1. Great for removing lighter coverage makeup


    I use the squalene cleanser to remove my makeup and then do a second cleanse with a different cleanser to remove the residue. It's definitely important to apply this to a dry face with dry hands as the consistency (and effectiveness) changes if there is any water present. I quite like the silky feeling of the product on your skin after you cleanse, but always follow up with the second cleanse beca...

  4. I LOVE this product


    It is the best cleanser I have ever used. You need to warm it in your palms a little first, and as you rub it into your skin, you can feel it start to melt and become more emollient. The texture is divine, and it leaves my skin super clean. My skin is prone to breakouts; this cleanser in no way leaves my skin feeling greasy nor does it lead to pimples.
    It is easy to use in the shower, or ...

  5. Perfect cleanser


    This cleanser is fantastic - and I have a lot of problems to contend with (no jokes, I’ve got pimples, oily underneath but dry and sensitive on top), massive pores, contact dermatitis and signs of ageing. But this product cleans really well, removes make up easily and best of all, doesn’t make me feel dry after the shower. I do a double cleanse to make sure I’ve definitely got all the make up off ...

  6. There's nothing bad I can say!


    Will I ever stop buying this product? No! That basically sums it up. It's an absolute essential for me and is my go-to second cleanser. Nothing bad I can say about it!
  7. A top notch cleanser


    After using harsh supermarket brand face washes for years, this cleaner has been a godsend! It leaves my skin feeling soft and fresh and has done wonders for my complexion. I'd heard great things about The Ordinary but didn't realize they were THIS good!
  8. supersize


    non irritating, even on sensitive skin. works well to remove makeup and sunscreen.
  9. Great oil cleanser


    I use this as part of a double-cleanse system and it removes makeup and sunscreen pretty well. I only use ligthweight makeup though so I don't know how well it would remove heavier makeup.
  10. Didn't feel very clean


    Very gentle and not stripping at all but not quite strong enough to remove all excess oil
  11. Good oil cleanser


    Bit of residue if used on its own so I like to follow up with a gel cleanser
  12. Amazing


    This is my ultimate choice for cleansers! It helped my damaged skin so much
  13. Great cleanser


    I love the feeling of this cleanser, it feels so nourishing on the skin. I have dry, sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate at all. It gives a beautiful, gentle, effective cleanse.
  14. Great product


    Cleans really well with pea size blob rubs/melts into enough to clean face and neck area twice a day without drying. Bigger size bottle lasts ages. Love this cleanser. Love the ordinary
  15. Incredible value


    Only need a pea sized amount to oil cleanse so this lasts ages
  16. Great for winter dry skin


    As I get dry in winter this cleanser gets rid of the days dirt without drying me out more
  17. Hydrating cleanser


    My skin feels soft after cleansing with this. I need to use a bit more cleanser than usual though because its so gentle
  18. Pretty good!


    This is a good cleanser - does what it's supposed to. Love that it is fragrance-free and doesn't dry my skin out.
  19. Amazing value


    This tube lasts just about forever and I love it as the first step in a double cleanse
  20. Amazing for winter


    This is great for my skin I the winter as I get dry and some cleansers can get too stripping but this isn't quite strong enough for my skin in winter as it gets a lot more oily
  21. Super gentle cleanser


    This is great as a first oil cleanse but not quite enough on its own for my skin as I am quite oily
  22. Great for Oily Skin and Blackheads


    I am 54 and I have always struggled with blackheads and oily skin. This is by far the best cleanser I have ever used. I use it twice a day, coupled with The Ordinary Niacinamde 10% + Zinc 1%, my skin has never looked so clean and clear. thank you thank you
  23. Ultimate affordable cleanser


    After trying so many types of cleansers, and even using this one incorrectly for the first week (read the directions!!) this is the only one that is effective at getting ALL my makeup off, and feels nice. Doesn’t require a lots of harsh wiping and is a one cleanse wonder. Great price, not irritating at all and effective. Can’t ask for much more than that.
  24. My fave


    I love this cleanser. It brightens my skin every time I use it. The price is amazing as well. You have to work it a bit to warm it up

  25. Love it!


    The first few uses I wasn't so sure of the 'oily' feel however after awhile my skin started looking clearer, brighter and more pump. Now I absolutely love this cleanser! It removes all of my makeup without any issue. I also love how hydrating it can be on my skin and my fine lines, especially when gently massaging it into the fine lines under my eyes.
  26. Anaizng


    Weird smell that reminds me of a toy I had as a child, but otherwise fantastic! It cleans my skin and I’ve noticed a decrease in the occasional random pimple I would get that weren’t hormonal. I can only decide that this cleans my skin in a way that nothing else ever did without making it feel like I’ve removed every bit of moisture from my skin to do so.
  27. My favourite cleanser


    I love this cleanser, and I definitely needed the bigger size. My skin has never felt better and I will always come back to this brand.
  28. Luxe feeling!


    This is basically a cream to oil cleanser and its pretty great for removing makeup, it also feels really balmy and luxurious - I really enjoy massaging it over my face. Not sure it totally removes eye makeup though :) Although it's not designed for the latter purpose. GREAT PRICE ALSO.
  29. Great cleanser


    Great for removing make-up and a little goes a long way. Make sure you follow the instructions, heat up on your hands then massage onto face. Leaves skin feeling clean but doesn't strip moisture from the skin or leave it feeling tight. I just use at night and follow with a milky gentle cleanser.
  30. Great in my evening routine


    I love this cleanser. I use it at night as the first cleanser in my double cleanse to remove my makeup and SPF. It melts the makeup away with ease and leaves my skin feeling soft. It's amazing value too!
  31. The best makeup remover


    The best makeup remover!!! It just take off all the makeup in few seconds without creating mess. Very affordable. And you just need a tiny bit to remove the whole makeup. I use Estée Lauder stay in foundation and those who use it know that it doesn’t come off easily but man this thing is just too good.
  32. Wallet-friendly skin saviour


    I have combination skin with acne issues that suffered a lot under concentrated dermatological treatment, so I just wanted to give me skin some much-deserved love and pampering with a gentle and enriching skin routine. And I could not be happier that I found The Ordinary's Squalane Cleaner.

    It is smooth, it is gentle and it spreads and washes off with ease. It leaves the skin feelin...

  33. Does what it says


    I purchased this as a gel cleanser for my combination skin, however am not sure that is exactly what I originally wanted! Super good value for money and the quality appears to be high, but beware it does not create a 'soapy' or 'foamy' sensation if that's what you're after in a cleanser. I have previously used an oil cleanser and that is basically what this is, gently cleansing and removing make u...

  34. My favourite cleanser


    Loved this cleanser so much, I upgraded after using the 50ml one all up as I knew this would be a keeper in my skincare routine. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean and I love how it rubs into an oil
  35. Good as a first cleanse


    Super nice as a first cleanse as it isn't stripping. However, I don't think its enough for my skin on its own.
  36. Amazing for sensitive and dry skin!

    jaime grace

    I use this every day and night, it's perfect for sensitive, dry and irritated skin. Never strips the skin and always leaves my face soft and clear. Definitely invest in this!
  37. Gentle cleanser


    Very gentle on my skin and doesn't dry it out or leave it feeling irritated. I really like using it alongside an oil based cleanser. Would definitely recommend!
  38. Hydrating face wash


    At first it took a little to get used to applying this on a dry face. You have to really rub it all over your face for it to become greasy which is what removes the 'day' off you face. This process is super hydrating and less harsh on my skin than my previous end of day routine. The 50ml tube is great for travel!
  39. Best Cleanser Ever


    I have oily skin and this is the most amazing cleanser, I love the feel on my face! Gets rid of all the oil and dirt without making my skin feel super stripped, so obsessed !
  40. I don't think I could love this product more


    This product is perfect as a second cleanser, as it feels so luxurious and nourishing. I use it on wet skin (even though the directions say to use it on dry skin) and I feel as though it still works, just need more product, so this supersize is ideal. This product is definitely a staple and will continue to repurchase!
  41. Good first cleanse


    Good first cleanse. Need to wait for product to emulsify/melt a bit on the skin and then it feels like an oil cleanser. Good price for amount of product you get.
  42. Best makeup remover and cleanser


    I have loved this from the first use! I didn't expect it to be so greasy, but it removes makeup and cleans my face so well.
  43. Non drying :)


    I have dry skin and I feel like this is quite a luxurious texture to put on! You apply it straight to your skin and it transforms into an oil and cleanses makeup beautifully - although I don't find it removes eye make up (and I don't think it suggest you use on eyes in the instructions). Very pleased.
  44. Nice balmy texture


    Nice balmy texture, good for normal skin and great for the first cleanse
  45. Good cleanser


    Good for all skin types & very hydrating. However, it doesn't completely remove makeup that easily.
  46. Light and clean


    Loved this product the first time I used it. It made my skin look and feel clean and light. Noticed it straway. Will definitely keep using this product
  47. A great daily cleanser


    I love this cleanser. It’s super gentle but still actually feels like it cleanses my skin (some cleansers either dry out my skin, or leave it feeling like I barely did anything to it). I use this in the mornings and a light exfoliant in the evenings. I’ve just ordered another tube!
  48. Gentle


    I've just started using this and it seems to be good for my skin so far. I have sensitive skin with breakouts and find that acne cleansers are too drying when I use serums or spot treatments too, so this cleanser is a good gentle cleanser to balance my other products.
  49. Fan


    It was my first time using a cleanser that doesn’t foam and it’s weird at first but it works. I use it to remove heavy make up at the end of the day and it does remove most although you do have to use micellar water after to remove completely. It’s a nice generous bottle too so has lasted a long time and it’s really good value for money
  50. Meh


    A bit greasy personally - I switched to this from my previous cleanser and started to get a few pimples soon after. Must not work for everyone unfortunately
  51. Great oil cleanser


    A good basic oil cleanser for a first cleanse. Takes a bit of working to turn it from a more gel-like consistency into an oil but effectively removes makeup and doesn't leave your skin feeling stripped or dry.
  52. Great daily cleanser!


    Gentle, removes make-up well and leaves skin feeling soft and clean. Also a great sized cleanser that lasts for a while!
  53. Great for dry skin


    Went out on a limb and purchased based on reviews alone. So glad I did, as my dry winter skin has loved this cleanser. Leaves my skin feeling soft and clean without that stripped feeling. Seems to remove make up quite well, although I don't wear a heavy base and not sure it would be heavy duty enough to tackle that. It's been a saviour for my skin this winter, which is not coping with the cold Mel...

  54. Super Gentle


    My skin had a freak out at the start of quarantine and none of my usual products were playing nicely with it. I stripped my routine right back, and didn't want to spend too much on replacements, so decided to give this a go. I am such a fan! Super gentle and not stripping at all. Love the consistency, it's very therapeutic to massage it into my skin for a few minutes each night.
  55. Good option


    I like this cleanser, it is working effectively with the rest of my routine. It is interesting to use, if your hands and face are too wet this cleanser virtually turns to milk and you feel like you're cleansing your face with nothing but water. I recommend only having a damp face and hands so theres not too much water and no water running down your face or hands. This way you can still feel the pr...

  56. Go-to cleanser


    This is the perfect everyday cleanser if you have normal to sensitive skin, there is nothing harsh in it and your skin is left hydrated and cleansed. However this doesn't deeply cleanse and get rid of makeup
  57. perfect gentle cleanser

    new fan

    If you have sensitive skin. This cleanser is perfect for you. The squalene cleanser helps hydrate and soften skin without causing oli or leaving a film on the skin. Someone who has combination skin would find this perfect. The texture is very silky and melts to an oil onto the skin and foams up when you wash. Very gentle can even use as a make up remover. Will be restocking on this from now on. I ...

  58. Gentle cleanser


    I love this cleanser. I use it morning and night and it hasn't let me down. It's very gentle and doesn't strip my skin of all the good oils/hydration. It's a great cleanser for someone more on the dry skin side.
  59. THE BEST!


    This is my all time favourite makeup remover. As long as you work it in your hands before gentle rubbing it all over your face it will remove all of your makeup! (I like to take it off with a face washer and then double cleanser with asap gentle cleanser!)
  60. Clean without stripping


    I bought this super sized cleanser as I had loved the 50mL sized product. It does what it says it's going to do, which is great. I don't find that this makes my skin any worse which is nice as it's quite dry with acne/congestion. If I couldn't afford any high level oil cleansers, this one can definitely replace those in my opinion.
  61. Nice cleanser for sensitive skin!


    I really like this cleanser as it doesn't leave my sensitive skin feeling stripped of its oils. The instructions say to warm the product between your hands until it turns from a cream consistency into an oil, but I have really cold hands so that never works. Instead, I apply the cleanser directly onto my face and gently start to massage it in - the heat of my face then turns it into an oil and you...

  62. So good for sensitive skin!


    I have extremely sensitive skin and this was a dream to use! So soothing and really removes everything well. Doesn’t strip your skin at all I love
  63. fantastic


    This cleanser is wonderful to work with. I enjoy that is emulsifies into an oil and is easy to work with and not messy. I can just use my fingers, no cotton pads needed, no frothing and foaming. Comes off nice and easy with a cloth pad and removes the dirt from my skin fantastically without irritating it. I have mature dry skin with spot breakouts.
  64. great oil cleanser


    After using this product for a few months I can confirm that it does remove face + eye makeup easily and it's very gentle on my sensitive skin, but it is a little *too* greasy/oily for my combo skin to be used on its own.

    I use it as a first step in my double cleanse routine and follow up with a gel cleanser. For the price I will definitely keep re-purchasing!
  65. A dry skins best friend!!


    I have super, super dry, eczema prone skin & I had heard about Squalene and how nourishing it was but I was still blown away when I tried it. Not only did it make a world of difference for my dry skin, it also seemed to do a really good job taking all the dirt and sunscreen and day in life stuff off at the end of the night & I've never felt fresher! Hugely recommend for anybody with dry skin, I t...

  66. Gentle cleanser


    I have combination/unpredictable/pregnancy skin
    Rosacea, hormonal chin break outs are my biggest skin concern
    I love the Squalane cleanser because it’s so gentle, yet manages to get all my make up off
    Although your skin doesn’t necessarily feel squeaky clean afterwards, so I think this is best used as step one of a double cleanse
    Would buy again purely for bang for buck
  67. Not the best Ordinary Product


    While I love the Ordinary range, this product just doesnt work for me. I didnt like the consistency, i felt i was using a lot of product to cover my face and hated the feeling after.
  68. Love this for my double cleanse


    This product is soo nice, you rub in into dry hands and apply it to a dry face and it goes from a cream to a soft oil and it literally melts off make up and other product on your face. I use it as a precleanse before i use my other cleanser at night, or i use it alone in the mornings as it washes off nice and isn't oily.
  69. this is a great product!


    I love the texture of a cream to oil and it never dries out my skin but leaves me feeling well cleansed!
  70. Fantastic cleanser


    I love this cleanser. It’s such great value for money, and it does exactly what you want a cleanser to do. I’ve spent so much time shopping around spending too much money trying to find a suitable cleanser for sensitive skin that still actually DOES something, but this one is it. It doesn’t irritate my sensitivities, whilst still providing a deep clean in the usual oily areas.
  71. Gentle cleanser


    This cleanser is very gentle and hydrating! It doesn't leave the skin dry afterwards. I am loving it
  72. Okay product


    A good cleanser - however doesn’t deeply clean and I feel like I need to follow up with a stronger cleanser. I think its good to remove make up but not as a stand alone cleanser.
  73. Best Cleanser EVER!


    It LITERALLY worked wonders for my skin, I have suffered with acne for years and I haven’t been able to find a cleanser that hasn’t left my skin irradiated or lead to major breakouts. I’ve had this cleanser for two weeks now and I haven’t had a break out since I started used I will definitely be sticking with this cleanser from now on.
  74. Love it


    Yep this is just lovely to use ! I love to clean my face before serums that's just me, I clean my face with a face halo then rub the cleanser in and wipe it off. It feels so soft and I love it. Total bargain for the price.
  75. New fave cleaner! Feels cleaner!


    I had been trying to locate a good cleanser at a fair price for a while. I considered going into oil cleansers but had some reservations about not using water (habit). So I was reccomended this one by ordinary. Feels nice and soft, no harsh cleansing and redness. New favourite!
  76. Makeup remover


    Loved this cleanser and how it removed makeup really well. Only use this cleanser when double cleansing to remove makeup tho, a good investment
  77. Love!!


    I’m about 1 month into using this cleanser every day and it’s my new favourite! I love that it turns to an oil/balm texture and doesn’t foam. Skin feels cleaner, even and hydrated after use!
  78. Love of my life


    I have never found a cleanser that I have truely ever loved apart from this! Great smell, consistency and size! Feels like heaven on your face and I am obsessed. Highly recommend!
  79. Skeptical at first


    I was skeptical at first using an oil based product on my oily skin. I really stay away from anything with oil in it due to breakouts. But actually this is awesome. Its quite strange to use on dry skin, but my skin feels so clean and fresh after using it.
  80. Converted!


    I was skeptical about using a 'dry' cleanser, as i've previously always used cleaners in the shower. However, I was really happy after trying it- it felt like it cleansed my skin thoroughly (without drying it out like some cleansers too).
  81. Feels nourishing and gentle


    FYI I have mature dry sensitive skin. When looking into my skincare routine I realise the way I was cleansing was too harsh and drying. I decided to try this cleanser as I know Squalane can help with hydration. I went straight for the larger option as I feel the small one will run out very quickly. It's so nice on the skin. You rub it between your fingers which turns it into a gel like consistancy...

    My cousin and mum recommended me to use this, at the start I was sceptical on the use of an oil-based cleanser on oily skin but its honestly MAGICAL. I love it! I use it as a day and night cleanser and the first one in my double cleanse routine. Highly recommend to everyone of all ages.
  83. Melts away makeup


    Looks at first like a moisturiser, turns into an oil when rubbed into dry palms. Glides easily over the skin removing makeup and waterproof mascara without irritating the skin or eyes. I use a warm face washer to remove and use this cleanser as my first in a double nightly cleanse.
  84. great for the price point


    This cleanser took some getting used to, however, if you use it properly, it spreads really well and takes off makeup beautifully. I'm someone who feels like cleansers strip their skin, but not this one. Love the larger size. Will definitely have this one on repeat order.
  85. Best gentle cleanser!


    I recently repurchased this cleanser. It lasted me for a long time because a little goes a long way! You really dont need much for your whole face. Warming it up on my hands prior to showering works really well. If I am wearing sunscreen or makeup I will use it as my first cleanser and then I will go in with a foaming cleanser (dermalogica special gel) and it gets rid of all my makeup. If I am not...

    I really like this cleanser! I originally bought the smaller size however decided to buy the larger size this time around so it lasts longer. I have normal/dry skin and find this cleanser doesn’t strip back the skin layer and it feels moisturising on the skin. Don’t buy if you don’t like using a cleanser that doesn’t foam because you will be disappointed - this cleanser is more of a silky, silicon...

    Chloe Rose

    I love using this as a first cleanse at night to melt away make-up and SPF. It is extremely gentle, and doesn't leave me feeling tight or squeaky. I also burned through this, so I'm happy it's been released in a supersize.

    I'd also recommend this for people who don't like the feeling of putting an oil/oily balm on as a first cleanse. This has a similar melting effect, but is a creamy...

  96. Melts away the day


    I bought the supersize after buying the regular size cleanser. Put a dollop on your hands, rub together until it becomes an oil and then rub onto your dry face, including your eyes. Use a warm facewasher to remove the excess. One of the only cleansers that feels like it doesn't strip my face after use - it actually feels more hydrated. Also love that I can rub it into my eyes to get rid of my masc...

  98. BEST cleanser


    I LOVE this cleanser. I have combination skin, so find cleansers either leave my skin too stripped/dry or gentle ones leave it not feeling clean enough. This squalane cleanser has my skin feeling nourished and hydrated but not oily.
  99. Love it


    I love this product to take off my makeup and SPF before doing a workout. It's fantastic because it doesn't dry my skin out but gets rid of all the product on my face. I find usually a cloth helps to remove all the product.

    I think it made me break out a little when I first used it but that went away after a week or so
