THE ORDINARY Squalane Cleanser
I bought this cleanser when I saw that it removes makeup + gentle on skin + it's from my favorite Western brand: The Ordinary. Ingredients wise, Squalane is the first from the list. Squalane is a great moisture ingredient and works like a hydrator that’s found naturally in the skin, helping to prevent loss of moisture and boost suppleness. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
I have used this cleanser to remove my full makeup, so I didn't use any makeup remover, just the cleanser. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
HOW TO USE
Rub the cleanser in your palms to warm it until it melts into an oil. Massage into dry skin, then rinse with warm water.
So this cream cleanser works like a cleansing oil but in a non-foaming cream form! It removed my mascara and eyeliner without stinging my eyes. For my waterproof lipstick - it does leave like 10% on the edge and lip lines, some lipsticks and lip stains got all wiped. I feel like I can just bring this on travels and forget the baggy micellar water, oil based makeup removers, cleansing balms and cleansing oils. No tight feeling, no stripping just clean, soft and hydrated. If you prefer cleansers that gives the squeeky clean, you can skip this one.
Down side maybe is the availability and the size. You have to find resellers online or if you have relatives/friends coming from US/Canada/Korea. 50ml is okay but I look forward for a bigger size because I'll surely repurchase this! If I'll use it everyday, I might run out easily. My perfect cleanser + makeup remover in one! A lot of users already requesting for a bigger tube, just hoping Deciem will do something about it
