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.
The scariest thing about fall isn’t Halloween, it’s dry skin. Luckily, The Ordinary has us covered with its new skin care kit. The cult-favorite brand just rolled out an affordable three-piece set featuring some of its most popular products.
You’ll get the brand’s beloved Squalane Cleanser that removes makeup while leaving your skin hydrated and super smooth. Up next is the hyaluronic acid and B5 serum that improves impurities and supplies even more moisture. Then there’s the amino acid-packed Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA formula that offers, you guessed it, more moisture, but without the greasy mess.
