Perfect first cleanseIt's great at removing makeup (including eye makeup). I also like to use this cleanser on days where I just want a gentle cleanse. Also its great value.
Super versatilegreat inexpensive cleanser that cleanses deeply and works well and is easy to use in any routine
Very Gentle CleanserThis cleanser is very gentle and surprisingly effective at removing makeup. Won't hurt your eyes at all. The only downside is I feel it leaves a film on the skin. I'm guessing this is the oil in the cleanser. Easily removed with a toner afterward, but maybe not a cleanser to use if you don't use toner. I love using the glycolic acid toner from Ordinary after this cleanser
prefer gel cleanserthis is an oil cleanser and I prefer gel cleansers but if you prefer oil based this is worth a try
Gentle but not very cleansingI found this product not cleansing enough. You have to use a lot to get the job done.
Great cleanserI wasn’t sure about this cleanser initially when it turned oily on my skin but hands down I love it. Currently using twice a day and it really cleanses my face leaving it feeling fresh. It isn’t harsh on your skin at all.
Excellent first cleanseverified purchaserLove this product. I use this every night as a first cleanse to remove sunscreen, make up and sweat. Leaves my skin hydrated and clean. Will definitely repurchase.
Where has this been all my lifeRemoving makeup is a nightmare for me because my skin tends to react to anything and everything in makeup remover, yup even micellar water. Not only does it actually remove my makeup but my skin doesn't feel stripped and dry, especially in winter. You get a lot of bang for your buck too since a little goes a long way
Amazing !!Best cleanser remove all dirt from the skin
Really good!verified purchaserI like this cleanser a lot - I got the first smaller on in an Ordinary gift pack, and then I had to come back and get a big one.
A few months ago, I wanted to try a cleanser and I got one from Lush, which sounded good but had a beeswax base and I found I couldn't get it off my skin! I tried this as something else and was a little worried about how oily it is when it goes off, but ...Read More
The BEST cleanser I've ever usedThis cleanser has me SHOOK! It magically removes every bit of makeup and leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated. I've even started wearing eyeliner again because it comes off so easily. I also love that I can get this in the supersize so I will never run out!
LOVE! & Perfect for mature sensitive skinThis cleanser is simply Excellent!
Super gentle on the skin - I am in my late 40's, have sensitive skin and also suffer from rosacea - I use this as a general cleanser am & pm as well as to remove makeup and its works a treat for both applications (although I dont weasr heavy or full coverage foundation so cant speak to its effectiveness there).
Its not reactive at all so Ive b...Read More
LOVE LOVE LOVESo many good reviews about this product. This is another one .. This product is so good! Very gentle on the skin, leaving the skin really soft and smooth. I'm so glad I purchased the large size.
Fabulous for sensitive skinA perfect oil cleanser, especially for sensitive and dry skin. Definitely need warm water to wash off properly, but it warms easily in my hands and on my face. So comfortable, a perfect for a short night time face massage!
Best first cleanserGreat first cleanser in the evening to remove make up and sunscreen. My skin always feels so soft after using this.
Great for removing lighter coverage makeupI 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...Read More
LOVE LOVE LOVESo 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 okThis 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.
I LOVE this productIt 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 ...Read More
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!
A top notch cleanserAfter 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!
supersizenon irritating, even on sensitive skin. works well to remove makeup and sunscreen.
Great oil cleanserI 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.
Didn't feel very cleanVery gentle and not stripping at all but not quite strong enough to remove all excess oil
Good oil cleanserBit of residue if used on its own so I like to follow up with a gel cleanser
AmazingThis is my ultimate choice for cleansers! It helped my damaged skin so much
Great cleanserI 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.
Great productCleans 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
Incredible valueOnly need a pea sized amount to oil cleanse so this lasts ages
Great for winter dry skinAs I get dry in winter this cleanser gets rid of the days dirt without drying me out more
Hydrating cleanserMy skin feels soft after cleansing with this. I need to use a bit more cleanser than usual though because its so gentle
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.
Amazing valueThis tube lasts just about forever and I love it as the first step in a double cleanse
Great for Oily Skin and BlackheadsI 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
Ultimate affordable cleanserAfter 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.
My faveI 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
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.
AnaizngWeird 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.
My favourite cleanserI 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.
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.
Great cleanserGreat 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.
Great in my evening routineI 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!
The best makeup removerThe 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.
Wallet-friendly skin saviourI 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...Read More
Does what it saysI 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...Read More
My favourite cleanserLoved 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
Good as a first cleanseSuper nice as a first cleanse as it isn't stripping. However, I don't think its enough for my skin on its own.
Amazing for sensitive and dry skin!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!
Gentle cleanserVery 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!
Hydrating face washAt 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!
Best Cleanser EverI 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 !
I don't think I could love this product moreThis 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!
Good first cleanseGood 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.
Best makeup remover and cleanserI 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.
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.
Nice balmy textureNice balmy texture, good for normal skin and great for the first cleanse
Good cleanserGood for all skin types & very hydrating. However, it doesn't completely remove makeup that easily.
Light and cleanLoved 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
A great daily cleanserI 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!
GentleI'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.
FanIt 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
MehA 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
Great oil cleanserA 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.
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!
Great for dry skinWent 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...Read More
Super GentleMy 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.
Good optionI 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...Read More
Go-to cleanserThis 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
perfect gentle cleanserIf 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 ...Read More
Gentle cleanserI 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.
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!)
Clean without strippingI 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.
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...Read More
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
fantasticThis 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.
great oil cleanserAfter 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!
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...Read More
Gentle cleanserI 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
Not the best Ordinary ProductWhile 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.
Love this for my double cleanseThis 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.
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!
For dry skinLove the product
Fantastic cleanserI 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.
Gentle cleanserThis cleanser is very gentle and hydrating! It doesn't leave the skin dry afterwards. I am loving it
Okay productA 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.
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.
Love itYep 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.
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!
Makeup removerLoved this cleanser and how it removed makeup really well. Only use this cleanser when double cleansing to remove makeup tho, a good investment
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!
Love of my lifeI 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!
Skeptical at firstI 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.
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).
Feels nourishing and gentleFYI 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...Read More
My favourite go to cleanserMy 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.
Melts away makeupLooks 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.
great for the price pointThis 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.
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...Read More
Love thisThis product is amazing and you only need a little bit so it lasts a long time
GreatI have oily and dehydrated skin and this is the perfect cleanser. Just wish it was more affordable
