The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane delivers benefits that go beyond the skin. It can also be used on the hair to help reduce breakage, protect from heat and leave the locks with a lustrous shine.

Love this product! My second bottle of this and would definitely recommend. It is super lightweight and not sticky or greasy. It leaves the skin feeling really plump and gives a slight glow. A must in my night skincare routine especially after using a toner.

Best Use: Hydrating, Reduce Dullness

caused me break-outs

I'm a big fan of The Ordinary and use the excellent Squalane cleanser, however, my sensitive skin can't handle this on it's own. I found myself coming own is small but really noticeable red lumps that lasted a few days, and that disappeared when i ceased used (I tried this a few times to make sure I knew the cause). I'm a bit gutted because it seemed like such a great low-cost product - but I do have sensitive skin and have had reactions before.

Love this product

I have the most sensitive acne prone skin and this product has been a lifesaver. It completely healed my skin after a very rough couple of months.

Amazing for sensitive skin

This is my holy grail product, if I had to pick one skincare product to use for the rest of my life it would be this. Whenever my skin gets inflamed and dry, I don’t use anything else except this and a cleanser. It literally works miracles to moisturise and soothe.

Best Use: Breakouts & Acne, Hydrating

moisture lock

great for my dry skin , especially in the winter ! you only need a tiny bit as it is really moisturising and takes a while to absorb so the bottle lasts for MONTHS at a time . i have found it can pill a bit in combination with other serums / gel moisturisers but other than this this product is a literal godsend . love it !

Best Use: Hydrating
