I love a good cleanser there is no lying when I say cleansing is probably the most important part of your skincare routine as the wrong cleanser can set you up for failure.
Squalane Cleanser is one of those cleansers anyone and everyone should use!
What is it?
This is a cleanser using squalane as a base, squalane is one of the closest things to our natural oil known as sebum as squalane is a component of sebum so it won’t be harsh or stripping. I love this cleanser so much because its so gentle and moisturising.
What does it do?
Squalane cleanser is best for those of you out there that wear sunscreen and makeup on a daily basis as this will break down and remove everything. This makes it a great first cleanse or your only cleanse if you only wear sunscreen every day.
How do you use it?
I like to use this a PM cleanser as its great for removing everything from the day you’ve just had. Take some of the cleanser in your hands and rub together for about 10 seconds, the texture will change from a balm-like texture to a clear oil-like consistency. I usually will massage it into my skin for about 20 seconds making sure to use circular motions but never pulling down as this can cause wrinkles and stretching of the skin. I will then emulsify the cleanser for another 20 seconds then wash it away with a washcloth.
What’s in it?
Straight away as it washes the makeup and sunscreen off your face 😛
I’ve been using this cleanser for quite some time now this is my second of them. At first, I wasn’t sold on this because it originally came in just 50ml which isn’t a lot at all so you end up using a lot of it and costing more money than its worth but then Deciem came out with a 150ml which is much better for a cleanser and it means you don’t have to buy it every 2 weeks.
It’s an effective cleanser for removing both makeup and sunscreen with no frills or added anything it just removes the day’s makeup and sunscreen and that’s all you can ask for in a good cleanser.
