Squalane is a great moisturizer as it is easily absorbed and prevents water loss from the skin. One of the reasons it makes for such an effective moisturizer is that our skin recognizes it instantly, since it's a form of a substance our bodies naturally produce. Squalane can also increase the luminosity and vibrancy of skin, lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and even help reduce redness

Great Oil

A great, inexpensive oil to use if you have dry skin. I tend to use this on my body when it needs a bit of a moisture boost and I sometimes use it on my face. Not much to say except I would recommend for someone looking for an oil to add to their skincare.

Love this and the price

I love ordinary products because the price means I can try lots of products and find what works for me. It gives me lots of opportunity to try products. The plant derived squalene is absolute brilliant and it’s really opened my eyes to the benefits it truly felt like my skin had a drink. I would definitely recommend putting it on clean dry skin under moisturiser and it’s a dream!

Basic Oil

I always want to love this brands products but I think they just don't suit my skin as well as I want. This is a great feeling oil. It feels refined and comfortable on the skin. Unfortunately I just found that after it has sunk in there don't seem to be any noticeable benefits. This is exactly what has happened to me with their other products and I wonder if I just need something a bit more potent due to age. I have used this for about 6 weeks and there don't seem to be any longer term benefits either. I got this particular product recommended on the brand's site then bought from Space NK. It feels good quality and hasn't blocked my pores despite feeling very oily, so it seems to be pretty high quality for the price. I just find that for my skin in particular the serum-type products in this range don't do anything so will return to some of the slightly higher end ones that are made for anti ageing as you can feel the benefits more readily from those. Maybe if I was younger. Great packaging and good ingredients.

Very versatile and hydrating oil

I love using this oil before my moisturiser on my face. I really feel that it absorbs and makes a difference over night compared to just having the moisturiser. It doesn't feel heavy at all. I also use this sometimes on my nails and cuticle, letting it sit and absorb before wiping excess and it really gets rid of the flaking skin. This doesn't break me out and it's not expensive too.

Best Use: Hydrating
