Most Helpful Positive

Excellent

Theresa

I love this product and this is is the 2nd time I have repurchased it. It is very soothing and nourishing. After I use it, it doesn’t make my dry skin feel tight. I use it to take off my sunscreen.
However, I do not wear makeup so I cannot say whether it can take that off.

Most Helpful Criticism

Just ok

Bec

I don’t really know what all the fuss is about, I wouldn’t say it’s a great cleanser. It’s cheap but I also don’t think it goes a long way so probably better off spending more on something more effective.
  1. Great everyday cleanser

    Shay

    I use this in the AM and PM and you only need a little bit to cleanse the face, it's the perfect everyday cleanser and doesn't cost you an arm and a leg!
  2. adore this

    Sally

    I suffer from dry skin and this product keeps my skin very hydrated! I would recommend this to anyone!
  3. Gentle on skin but not for removing eye makeup

    Charlie

    I use this as my first cleanse followed by a cream cleanser. It's lovely and gentle on the skin and has a lot of slip so you don't need much. It doesn't do a great job of removing eye makeup which is why I probably won't repurchase. If this isn't a deal breaker for you it would be the perfect cleanser for a sensitive skin.
  4. Doesn't remove makeup very well

    Sandee

    I like The Ordinary products generally but this one was a let down. It says it removes makeup but it took 3 washes before it did. This happens every time I use it so I won't be buying this product again.

  8. not bad

    Lil

    its okay, it cleans anything on top of my skin but doesnt go as far to clean my pores or help my oily skin
  9. Awesome

    Lilly

    really helped clear my acne prone skin after consistent use, a little goes a long way without drying my skin
  10. Gentle and effective

    Kate

    Originally, I liked (but didn't love) this cleanser - but with extended use, I'm completely obsessed. Massive fan. I love the fact that it feels like my natural skin barrier is being supported, not damaged, yet my face is still gently and effectively cleansed. If I were wearing heavier makeup, I may double cleanse, but I've found that with light makeup use it works perfectly. It's effective, convenient, and the use of squalane in a cleanser is unique. I will definitely continue to repurchase.
  11. Unsure of this product

    Isabella

    This product is okay for the price. Not much product in the bottle. Works well as a cleanser but nothing special to it. I will stick to my usual cleanses.
  12. love this

    Raha

    I suffer from dry skin and this product keeps my skin very hydrated! I would recommend this to anyone! Removes make up extremely well, I was quite impressed!
  13. Feels so nice

    Sam

    I just started using this cleanser. I love how you put it in a dry face and rub it into an oil before you put it on. You don’t need much, so it lasts a long time! Love the feeling of my face after.
    I have dry skin, quite good skin, but it masked it feel smooth and soft after.
  14. So good!

    Angela Kay

    Melts away makeup so well, and leaves my face feel so refreshed afterwards.
  15. Worth trying

    Ati

    I really like this product ,warming it up in my hands turning it into a oil based cleanser it worked. I didn't react to it , after using the cleanser it made my dry skin softer , I would buy it again
  16. Pretty happy

    Hannah

    Still early days but I’m pretty happy with the cleanser. I’m using it in the shower and it’s gentle on my skin. I just need to remember to use it before I wet my face and hands!
  17. Need a bigger size

    Rin

    Great concept of cleanser but definitely need to come in a bigger size (I heard it’s happening). Remove make up well. Love the fact that it can be rinsed off with water.
  18. Way too oily

    Jeanne

    Found this one to be a bit odd with the application - had to apply to dry skin first and the texture was just way too oily despite being “oil free”.
  19. Not the best

    Hannah

    Unlikely to recommend. Didn’t love it. Felt like it didn’t remove make up properly and didn’t make my skin fee that good
  20. My favourite cleanser!

    Briony

    I’ve used plenty of oil cleansers like this one, and its very good- great value for what it is: melts away all makeup and is hydrating but not too much. I love to use it as step 1 in a double cleansing. It has become a part of my routine, I recommend getting the new larger size.
  21. Helped with acne

    Kay

    Squalane cleanser has really really helped clear up my acne while exfoliating the dead, germy skin
  22. Gentle cleanser

    Marie

    This is a gentle cleanser in the Ordinary’s trademark no-frills packaging. Minimal scent. Creamy texture which goes on easily and washes off well leaving fresh, clean skin. Sometimes I want something that feels more exfoliating, but for day-to-day use this I’ve found this to be good for cleansing my skin without causing any drying or irritation.
  23. The best cleanser

    LN

    I have been trialling different products and came across The Ordinary Squalene Cleanser. I actually bought several products to suit my pigmentation. However, wow! This cleanser goes on dry almost like a coconut oil feel on the face. Once you rinse it off it leaves your face so soft! I love it, in fact it says make up remover as well. I had bb cream and blush on. It actually removed 95% of my make up off. Most cleansers leave your face dry. So i would really recommend anyone wanting a cleanser that actually leaves your face soft and smooth. As a regime i do use a mpisteriser but i think it could go without.
  24. Squalane cleanser spoilt with dud ingredient

    Louise

    Wonderful to use great ingredients EXCEPT Crosspolymer-6 a synthetic acrylics on danger list for skin care. Will throw out remaining product now I’ve checked ing
  25. Great non-drying makeup remover

    Ellen

    I use this in the first step of a double cleanse to remove makeup and it's great. Removes makeup without drying the skin, I actually use this as soon as I get home from work then do my second foaming cleanse just before bed as my skin feels ado nice after using it. Very impressed but wish it came in a larger bottle!
  26. Does the job

    Grace

    I didn't love this cleanser, however it did the job just fine. I use a Foreo Luna Play and found this product didn't really work well with it. In saying that, the directions do say to rub in your hands until it turns into an oil. Would still recommend!
  27. Loving the silky, none drying feeling

    Sammie

    This product surprised me. Go on dry skin and by simply warming it and changing the cream into an oil.
    My skin feels clean without feeling dry
  28. Gentle cleanser with an oily finish

    Katherine

    I love the Ordinary products and was excited to try their cleanser. I've been using it at night as a double cleanse. It's very gentle and requires a bit of scrubbing with a muslin cloth to remove makeup and leaves an oily feel on the skin. Definitely not drying, but is possibly a bit too gentle. Haven't used it in the mornings and I think I will be on the hunt for another cleanser to use in tandem with this.
  29. Mild cleanser

    Maryanne

    I have combination skin, it doesn’t leave me dry which is great. But, not great at taking off makeup. Maybe if you done where much it would be ok. I find I have to do it at least 3 times to remove what a miclar water does in 1.
    But I use it on days I don’t wear make up.
  30. Gentle Clean

    Jessica

    I used to use a salicylic acid cleanser but since switching to this I realised how much irritation it was causing. I have dry sensitive skin prone to breakouts, which is tricky to balance.

    The Squalane goes on a very light oil, which washes off quite well in warm water. It leaves some residue, but by the end of my shower and after drying off my skin feels soft, not greasy.

    I use this every second day, and usually follow with Glycolic acid, then Niacinamide, HA, and Moisturising factors.
  31. Decent cleanser.

    Courtney

    I used this on my dry, acne prone skin to remove my makeup. I found I had to use a LOT of product to remove the makeup, often with the help of a face washer. I would mainly use this as part of a double cleansing routine, just to remove my makeup before cleansing with something active. Did the job, but nothing life changing.
  32. Amazing

    Lisa

    I’ve come from using Dermalogica Ultracalming cleanser
    As my skin is sensitive I was reluctant to try this product.
    All I can say is THIS IS AMAZING!!!
    It removes a full face of makeup effectively as well as leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturised without any irritation.
    Best of all the price of this product is unbelievable
  33. BANG for your BUCK

    Casey

    This was one of the first Ordinary products I ever purchased. As an introductory product, I have been hooked on this brand since. The cleanser has a beautiful creamy texture that melts to be a beautiful oil. One of the best things about this cleanser is my skin doesn't feel as though it has been completely stripped of its natural oils after use.
  34. Love it

    M

    So effective for removing makeup at the end of the day. Melts my mascara off.. but so gentle and once rinsed my face feels so clean, yet plump and hydrated! Never tight or dry. Game changer cleanser for me
  35. Doesn’t dry

    Charlie

    I feel like this cleans my skin without drying it. I hop out of the shower and my face looks brighter and I’m not racing for the moisturiser immediately. If I wore heavy makeup I may use this as a primary or secondary cleanser, if I doubled up
  36. Great product

    Kylie

    This product is great. I have really sensitive skin and haven’t had any bad reactions to this product.
  37. Great product, leaves skin feeling super soft

    Jenna

    I have normal to oily skin and this product is amazing! I love that it goes on dry skin with your hands, saves a lot of messing about with water or sponges. Leaves the skin feeling super soft afterwards after cleansing everything away.
    Highly recommend!
  38. mild cleanser

    Abbie

    This is really mild cleanser, I wouldn't only use this product. I definitely needed to either use this 2/3 times to get all my make up and dead skin off or use this with another product for an efficient clean. I will probably keep this as just a pre cleanse as it was so cheap and affordable.
  39. Great!

    Kahli

    Using this as a pre-cleanse has helped my winter ravaged skin to not feel so dry. Comes out white and balmy but warming it up on the skin turns it translucent and moderately thick. On application to the face it feels thick but spreads out really well.

    Unlike some other balmy cleansers, it doesn't feel greasy on the skin after you wash it off.
  40. Not the best

    Hannah

    I purchased this cleanser due it's great price and reviews. I wasn't overly impressed. It's a very oily textured cleanser and I feel it didn't really remove my makeup or do much at all. I had to follow on with my usual cleanser to really clean my skin. Personally won't be purchasing again, it wasn't for me.
  41. Great and soothing

    Theresa

    I enjoy the product, it slides nicely onto my skin and I use it at night as my only cleanser. I don’t wear makeup so it is hard for me to determine whether this cleanser could remove it however, it is perfect for removing my sunscreen.
  42. Please make a bigger size

    Kylie

    Perfect cleanser for me. No irritation when taking eye makeup off, love the consistency & ease of washing off.. just wish it was larger than 50ml.
  43. Gentle cleanser. Doesn’t remove my makeup

    Storm

    It’s a gentle cleanser, feels nice going on but doesn’t really do much. I still have makeup on after cleansing.
  44. Larger size needed!

    Sha

    Works well to get rid of makeup without stripping natural moisture from skin. Wish it came in a larger size unfortunately
  45. Affordable product

    Bianca

    Great affordable product, washes face clean of any makeup leaving it fresh. Dont be disguised by its price really loving it.
  46. LOVE IT

    Maddie

    this cleanser is amazing! I have sensitive, oily skin and this cleanser is so good for my skin! It controls my face and doesn't make it break out at all, it doesn't make it too dry and keeps it hydrated. Definitely recommend!!
  47. Great face wash

    Tamara

    I was suggested to try this face wash and I am glad I did, It gets rid of all my stubborn make up (even waterproof mascara) and seeing as my skin is oily its been one of the only "oil based cleansers" I have found that haven't broken me out. I usually use this as my first cleanse.
  48. Good

    Alice

    I like using ordinary products and this is another good one. I use an oil cleansing method before and then use this cleanser and my skin is left clean.
  49. Great texture!

    Wynona

    I really enjoy using this cleanser in the morning. It gives me an opportunity to let the water heat up before it touches my skin and the texture is just lovely to use. I haven't used it to take makeup off yet but I have used it every morning for the last 3 weeks and it doesn't strip your face like normal facewashes so it's nice to wake up and feel hydrated.
  50. Nice

    Larissa

    I like the texture of this cleanser and it works well on most of my makeup. Not great on mascara & eyeliner. It’s non drying which is great from my normal to dry skin. It is also un-scented, which I like.
  51. Non-drying

    Mart

    It took some time for my mature skin to adjust to this cleanser as I have been so used to using harsh cleansers that stripped my skin of natural oils. A few weeks in and I am very happy with the moisturising effect of this cleanser, as well as the effectiveness in removing make up. Definitely not to be underestimated.
  52. Moisturising cleanser with

    Denny

    I like this cleanser a lot because the oily cream works on my older dry skin. The granuals are a little disconcerting but got used to them quickly. I experienced some discomfort/ slight burning but that has since disappeared.
  53. Nice first cleanse

    Jessica

    If you like double cleansing and need a new first cleanse this could be it! It's gentle, yet effective and doesn't aggravate my acne-prone skin. The only problem is that the bottle is very small - hopefully the Ordinary bring out a bigger size!
  54. Mature skin + long wear full cover foundation

    Sarah

    39 yrs old. I wear long wear, full cover foundation daily. I usually double cleanse out of necessity, but tried this and it smashed my makeup! Very surprised and I confirmed with a clean cotton pad after I stepped out of my shower (I cleansed before I got in and rinsed in the shower). Spotless!!
  55. Another great Ordinary product

    Alex

    Leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean! I use this as the second step in my cleansing routine, I first remove my makeup with an oil based cleanser. Works well with my dry combination skin.
