If you’re in the market for a new every day cleanser that won’t break the bank and will get skin squeaky clean without drying it out, then look no further than of Caroline Hirons’s most used products of 2021: The Ordinary’s Squalane Cleanser.
The beauty guru revealed her love for the £5.50 product (which can be shopped everywhere from Boots to Cult Beauty) on her Instagram page. She said: “It’s easily my most used cleanser of the year. @deciem knocked it out the park.”
“Suitable for everyone. Any age, colour, skin type, skin condition and bodily function” she continued, followed by a pregnant lady emoji – suggesting the product can be used throughout pregnancy.
What is squalane? WELL, let us fill you in. It’s not too dissimilar to hyaluronic acid, in the fact that it helps keep skin super hydrated. It’s a naturally occurring lipid which acts as a barrier to help stop skin’s natural moisture from escaping. It’s particularly great for dry skin but is an ingredient which benefits everyone (you can read more about which beauty ingredients are best for which skin types here).
A great product to add to your Christmas list or treat yourself to – and don’t forget to double cleanse to ensure you’re getting every last scrap of make-up, dirt and pollution off your face. Here’s to happy skin in 2022.
