A gentle cleansing product formulated to target makeup removal whilst leaving the skin feeling smooth and moisturized. The formula incorporates Squalane, alongside other lipophilic esters that are gentle, moisturizing, efficient in dissolving makeup and facial impurities and increasing the spreadability of the product. When rubbed between your palms for approximately 10-30 seconds, the product undergoes an important textural change from a balm-like consistency to a clear oil-like consistency. This allows the emulsifying sucrose esters in the formula to trap and blend the dissolved makeup and facial impurities with water for rinsing. Being non-comedogenic and soap-free, this formula is designed to be gentle enough for daily use, without over-drying the skin, making it suitable for all skin types.
Dispense product into hands. Rub together to warm the product, allowing it to melt into an oil. Massage well onto dry face and rinse with warm water. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Keep out of reach of children.

Patch tests are an easy way to help predict if you may experience a negative initial reaction to a new product. It is recommended to perform a patch test before incorporating any new product into your regimen. We have outlined a general method for conducting your own patch test below based on the type of product.

  • Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm.
  • Keep the area dry.
  • If the product has a specified duration of use, rinse off after this time has elapsed. Otherwise rinse off after 24 hours.
  • If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, do not use the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser Ever! This is now my absolute favourite cleanser ever. I use it twice daily and my skin feels so much cleaner and smoother after using it. I used to get some bad breakouts and this not only cleared my skin up within a week but if I get signs of a new breakout, it reduces any inflammation almost immediately after use, so the breakout becomes non existent. I have started my two teenagers on this as well and it has made such a difference to their skin too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome cleanser! I borrowed this from a friend and tried it. Its an amazingly good cleanser for my dry skin as it doesn't dry my face out and leave my face tight and itchy like so many cleansers do. This is yet another Ordinary product that I've added to my daily regimen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Squalane Just found out what squalane is...regret buying it for that. The product wasn't all that either. Not worth killing sharks at all. Look it up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from amazing product i had this cleanser a month ago and it is by far my favourite one, the scent is almost a green tea type and it works wonders for my skin, it feels so soft and you see results about two weeks later, just repurchased again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The holy grail product This is my holy grail product. Been usein this for 3 years now and cant live without it. I have acne prone combination skin and every time I run out of this stuff and try something else, my skin breaks out very badly. This stuff cures my skin and makes it look flawless. Please don't ever stop making this, becouse i have never discovered anything so grate as this product. I know I will be using this for the rest of my life if you never stop making this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn’t dry my skin! I have very dry skin and find it most effective if I start off my skin care routine with a mild & non-drying cleanser (where I would otherwise always have to make up for this by adding layers of moisturizer and oils). This is perfect - and it takes off my makeup too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very happy :) I'm new to TO range. I've not knowingly used squalane before but picked this up as part of my regime. been using for around 2 weeks now. cleanse etc in the AM and double cleanse etc in the PM. And I'm impressed. I like the feel of my skin after taking it off. my face feels clean and a little matte. And even nicer after a double cleanse! no unpleasant stripping feeling! I spend a few minutes massaging it all around my face and then rinse off with warm water. I've never had an issue putting it on or taking it off my skin which I did expect from the feel of the cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t Live Without This Stuff!!!! I bought this because it was so inexpensive but was I surprised.... yes... you have to rub it a little vigorously to get it to melt and turn into butter consistency... but then it melts away makeup and dirt... and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and i don’t feel like my skin was stripped like when i used other products.... i follow that up with squaline oil and my skin feels like a babies bottom... love love love this product.... never stop making it...
