Earlier this year, cult beauty brand The Ordinary announced that it would be releasing its first ever cleanser, causing a frenzy among beauty lovers around the world. And now, the cruelty-free brand has finally dropped the highly anticipated product.

It's finally here. Say hello to The Ordinary's first-ever (took way too long 🙈) cleanser. The soap-free and non-comedogenic nature of The Ordinary's Squalane Cleanser protects the integrity of epidermal lipids and leaves any skin type feeling cleansed, moisturized and soft. Squalane, alongside other gentle esters, works to trap and dissolve facial impurities and makeup (even waterproof mascara), detaching them from the surface of the skin. Subsequently, the emulsifying sucrose esters blend the dissolved makeup and facial impurities with water, allowing them to be easily and efficiently rinsed away. 💦 The Ordinary's Squalane Cleanser undergoes 3 textural phases; 1) Balm-like upon dispensing, 2) Oil-like after rubbing between the palms of your hands and 3) Milk-like when combined with water. The cleanser should only be applied to dry skin once it has entered the oil-like phase. This change in texture is crucial in order to facilitate the efficient dissolving of facial impurities and makeup. Although 50ml may not seem like a lot, the balm- (and later, oil-) like consistency of this formula spreads very easily and as such, a small amount is required upon application. We understand that more is always more for some, but please don’t be sad – a cuddlier size is already in the works. 🤗
Priced at just £5.50, The Ordinary’s Squalane Cleanser is not only purse-friendly but promises to deliver great results.
Anyone who is familiar with the Canadian skincare brand knows that it has completely changed the world of budget beauty, providing highly-rated, quality products for less – and the cleanser is no exception.
Not only is it vegan, but according to the brand, ‘the soap-free and non-comedogenic nature of The Ordinary’s Squalane Cleanser protects the integrity of epidermal lipids and leaves any skin type feeling cleansed, moisturised and soft.
‘Squalane, alongside other gentle esters, works to trap and dissolve facial impurities and makeup (even waterproof mascara), detaching them from the surface of the skin.’
To use the product, all you have to do is pour some into your hands and gently rub them together to warm the product, allowing it to melt into an oil. You then massage the oil into your dry face before rinsing it off with warm water. Voila, your skin will feel refreshed and rejuvenated. It is also said to be great at make-up removal.
The cleanser is also non-comedogenic, alcohol-free and silicone-free, so even those with sensitive skin can use it without worry. Sounds pretty amazing, right?
Popular products by The Ordinary tend to sell out fast, so you might want to get your order in while you can.
