Prepare to join another waitlist, then, because the brand has embarked upon their first foray into cleansers, with another coveted skincare hero, The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser, selling out only 24 hours after going on sale.
When it comes to budget skincare, cult beauty brand, The Ordinary, has smashed it out of the park with their straight-forward, high-quality formulations since day one. From natural moisturisers to cold-pressed organ oil and a serum foundation that sold out within seconds, The Ordinary is one of the hottest skincare companies that actually deserves the hype.
Dubbed as a ‘gentle, moisturising facial cleanser’ that’s suitable for all skin types, the squalane cleanser’s special ingredient is all in the name.
It may sound scientific, but squalane is simply an emollient that’s naturally produced by the body, which helps to lock in moisture and nourishes the skin.
Squalane is also a hardworking antioxidant, meaning the cleanser also works to protect the skin from everyday pollution and environmental aggressors.
Unlike other oil-based cleansers designed to target makeup removal, The Ordinary’s Squalane Cleanser is a balm which transforms into an oil when you warm it between your palms.
After it’s applied to the face, the dual-action formula works to trap and dissolve facial impurities and makeup (even waterproof mascara), allowing them to be easily and efficiently rinsed away with water.
Thanks to the all-important addition of plant-derived squalane, the cleanser also doubles as a moisturiser, delivering an extra dose of hydration to dry, sensitive skin.
Like many of The Ordinary’s other cult products, the cleanser is soap-free, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, so it’s perfect for everyday use – as well as a 30 second face wash when you roll in from a late night.
Sound too good to be true? Did we mention that it only costs £5.50?
Ladies, form an orderly queue.
