NEW! The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser

The Ordinary recently launched a mild cleanser, which is said to be ideal for cleaning facial skin. He should also remove make-up easily. I was really fired up! That’s why I ordered the Squalane Cleaner for the release.

I have used it daily for the past 4 weeks. Today I tell you whether the purchase was worth it. 🙂


The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser facts

The Squalane Cleaner is formulated mildly. It also contains no fragrances. The Ordinary Cleanser, as the name suggests, contains squalane. Squalane is a well-tolerated substance that is often used in the cosmetics industry.

More information about Squalane can be found in Incipedia’s contribution to The Ordinary Cleanser. I linked the blog post here .

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser contains 50ml and is vegan. It is suitable for all skin types. The price is between € 6 and € 7.20.


The Ordinary promises that the new cleansing product is mild to the skin but still thoroughly removes make-up. You can find out whether I can agree to this now!

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser consistency

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser has a palm-like consistency at first and is white. Only when you warm it in your hands does the balm become a colorless, quite heavy oil.

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser Oil

You need a little patience until the Cleanser turns into an oil. I warmed the Cleanser in my hands for about 30 seconds until I liked the consistency. D as cleaning product is applied with hands-on dry face and thoroughly massaged into the skin. I really took my time with this step. The face was also happy about a pleasant massage. *G*

Then I washed the mixture of makeup and oil with lukewarm water. When I wore makeup and removed it with The Ordinary Cleanser, I always felt that there was still a lot of Foundation & Co. on my face. The result just didn’t feel clean … if you understand what I mean.

The Ordinary Cleanser performed miserably with eye make-up. And I don’t even use waterproof mascara… The mascara and eyeshadow residues have come off with rubbing, but they have accumulated ugly under the eye.

It was therefore essential for me to use another make-up removal product after cleaning with The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser. Only after this step did my skin feel really clean.

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser experience

Sometimes I used the Cleanser in the morning. Since I liked him much better. He always left a great, neat skin feeling.

I can also say positively that I tolerated the cleanser from The Ordinary well. My skin did not respond to him with additional pimples or a rash.


I really expected a lot from the Squalane Cleanser. Because of its mild formulation and good ingredients, I wished it would work for me.

Unfortunately, when it comes to make-up, he doesn’t meet my expectations. He only made a good impression when cleaning in the morning. So if you almost never wear make-up, you could take a closer look at The Ordinary’s new cleaning product.

However, if you are looking for a facial cleanser that removes make-up, you will probably not be happy with The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser …
