Most Helpful Positive

Gentle effective cleanser
I have oily skin and this cleanser and was after a gentle yet effective cleanser. This one does a great job at removing make-up and oil without making my skin feel dry. It does take about 10 seconds or so to warm the product in your hands before use, but it's not too much hassle when you're used to it. It rinses clean with no residue. I will re-purchase and recommend.

Most Helpful Criticism

Ordinary
I've been using The Ordinary products for nearly a year and was excited when this came on the shelves. I was excited to give it a go, but I feel it falls a little short. Yes it removes make up without drying the skin and its gentle on the eye area, but the tube is rather small, and I find that to remove all my make up (and I don't wear all that much) I need to use a reasonable amount, or cleanse twice. I can't image the tube would last any more than 3 weeks. Overall, its a nice product, but I wont purchase it again.

  2. Love it

    I find a lot of gentle cleansers don't really do their job but this one does as promised. Will repurchase
  3. Nice but expensive for the amount of product.

    I've been using this as a first step cleanser, following with a gentle foaming cleanser to ensure my face isn't left with any residue. As this turns into an oily-feeling product after massaging it into the face, I find that I need a second step to feel clean. Although it is a great product, does what it is supposed to, and hasn't given my skin any ill-effects, I do need to comment on the size of the product. It's quite expensive for 50mL whereas my regular oil cleanser is 200mL for ~$30. The Squalane cleanser is pricey for what it is, and I find that I need quite a substantial amount of product for its intended purpose--to remove makeup. So, all in all, I've nearly used the entire tube in a month! I still do like it, so will repurchase to have in my repertoire; however, I might use it as a cleanser on my off-days when I am not wearing any makeup and only sunscreen!
  4. Perfect gentle cleanser

    This cleanser is great to use as a first cleanse. It is extremely gentle yet melts all the makeup off my skin once I've created a balm with my hands. Highly recommended.
  5. Cleanses without drying

    New purchase, I love it! I wear light to medium coverage makeup and massaged into dry skin, it dissolves this no problem without leaving my skin tight and dry.
  6. Simple & effective

    This cleanser is super light, gentle on skin and doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry after using. I’ve always had patchy dry skin - this cleanser has been perfect for me. It’s a really good basic cleanser. My only dislike is the size, using it twice a day will leave me needing a new one every month.
  7. New HG

    I saw this released and was really interested to try it but I was waiting until I had finished my current cleanser. I was excited to try a squalane cleanser and liked the fact this one is free from alcohol, silicone and is cruelty-free (also vegan!)

    It works differently to most cleansers I've used (you put it on your face dry) but I love it! You only need the tiniest amount do don't be put off by the size of the tube.

    I love how it doesn't dry my skin out like a lot of cleansers do. I love this alone but could definitely see myself using it when I double cleanse too.

  9. Good cleanser; better for a pre-cleanse.

    I'm a fan of The Ordinary products as they're generally effective at a good price point. While I enjoyed how this cleanser doesn't strip the skin, I did find that on occasions when I'd worn heavier makeup it would take the assistance of an additional cleanser or cloth to remove stubborn eye makeup. As a result, I found myself using more product and have almost run out after only 3/4 weeks. It's also a relatively small tube for a cleanser and I wish it came in a larger size.

    In future I would use this more as a pre-cleanse, and probably more so for days when I'm not wearing heavy makeup. For days when you have to remove a full glam look, I'd suggest using something more heavy duty.
  10. What a delight

    This product is an absolute dream! I have sensitive skin and am always cautious when it comes to trying new products. This cleanser is lovely- easy to use and very gentle on the skin. My skin has been feeling soft and smooth after using it, and have not suffered any reactions or irritations
  11. Great gentle cleanser

    I’ve loved using this cleanser so far, it is good at removing makeup and leaves skin feeling clean but not tight or dry. Just took a star off because the tube is quite small and I think it won’t take long to finish.
  12. Love It

    Love the consistency of this cleanser. Super hydrating and a little goes a long way. I do use a makeup wipe to remove eye makeup first though and then go in with this cleanser, so it's perfect to use that way to really cleanse the skin once you've taken that first layer of makeup off.
  13. Great Cleanser

    I have never used many products on my skin in the past but the years are catching up and I've had to give it a bit more TLC. I was skeptical when I started using this as it's different to any cleansers I have used in the past but for good reason! Normally cleansers dry out my skin but this one leaves it really soft and smooth but still squeaky clean.
  14. One of my faves

    This is one of my favorite cleansers. I love using this when I double cleanse, I use this one first and my face feels so clean after.

  16. Amazing cleanser

    Such an amazing cleanser at such a fantastic price for the quality of the product. Really does what it says! Great!!!
  17. Super gentle!!

    I have pretty oily skin that can be sensitive at times. I love how gently this cleanser is, whilst still cleaning my skin. Would definitely recommend!
  18. Just OK and noot good value for money

    This cleanser is gentle and doesn’t leave skin feeling dry or tight after washing. However I really need to take off zinc oxide based sunscreen first with micellar water because the squalane cleanser isn’t adequate as a ‘single cleanse’ product to remove thick sunscreen or makeup. Also the size is woeful. The whole tube was gone in 2 weeks. It’s inexpensive but not economical. I’d consider repurchasing if it came in a 150ml tube but in reality I’ll probably just contine my double cleansing method using Dermalogica Precleanse or other cleansing oil.
  19. Love it!

    The Ordinary have finally released a cleanser, and I'm not disappointed! Perfect for my skin, cleans really well and doesn't leave my skin dry. Great price. Will continue to use this in my lineup!
  20. Decent cleanser, especially for the price.

    Having heard a lot of buzz around this cleanser, I thought I’d give it a go- at such a low price I had nothing to lose.
    I use it primarily as a first cleanse to remove makeup at night, but I find it doesn’t remove my waterproof mascara very well (but not much does really). It does sting my eyes a little, but my eyes are very sensitive.
    My skin feels clean, soft, and it does not dry my skin out- most cleansers do, even when they say they won’t.
  21. Dissolves makeup

    Dissolves makeup so so easily. Love that it's not in a tub/ balm form - personally I find tubes easier. It hydrates and doesn't leave a stripped feeling
  22. Fantastic

    Dissolves makeup and feels great on my skin. Not at all irritating. Rinses clean and soft. Would highly recommend.
  23. Great for sensitive or dehydrated skin

    This is the best cleanser I have ever used on my sensitive and dry skin. I have found my new forever cleanser! Only marking it down 1 star because you only get a small bottle. Would love a much bigger bottle!
  24. Great cleanser but not what I was looking for

    This cleanser is more like a cleansing oil. You apply to DRY skin and then massage and rinse. It does a fantastic job of removing all traces of Estee Lauder Double Wear in one cleanse.
    It is a great products but I was looking for something I could use in the shower to take my makeup off at the end of the day - make sure you read the directions first to see if this cleanser is for you! :)
  25. Really great cleanser

    This is a really great hydrating (cream style) cleanser but really don't get much, even for the price. I would still highly recommend this, especially good to travel with and it does work very well.
  26. LOVE!

    A nice hydrating cleanser that dissolves makeup without irritation. Perfect for dry skin.
