Most Helpful Positive

Very Happy

Hannah

This product definitely delivers! I expected the cleaner to remove makeup and impurities, to make my skin feel soft and smooth and give it a nice complexion.

This product does all of the above.

It feels very nice to put on the skin and is easy to wash off. Afterwards, my skin feels as soft as anything and completing clean.

Prior to using this product I had only used expensive cleaners namely, Clarins and La’Occtaine Provenance.

However, I will never go back to using another cleanser.

My other skin concerns namely, oily skin, blemishes and dryness have not been an issue either since using this product.

Most Helpful Criticism

Gentle

Emma

It is gentle, but doesn’t dissolve my everyday makeup too well - I find this works best after using micellar water first.

  2. The best oil cleanser on the market

    Kiera

    Since Nude Skincare went out of business about 6 years ago, I have been searching for an oil cleanser that was equal to or better than their cult cleanser.

    And The Ordinary delivered! I have cystic acne, and dehydrated skin that is very difficult to deal with. This is gentle enough to keep sensitivities at bay, and strong enough to remove makeup and impurities.

    Of course, this all comes at a price point is second to none. I can’t recommend this product enough.
  3. So sad this broke me out!

    Becky

    I used this for about 3 days and loved it until it gave me big cystic pimples and I was devastated! My combination/ acne prone skin felt so nice after using this... it cleaned really well without stripping my skin but unfortunately it’s just not the right product for me.
  4. Great gentle cleanser

    Angelique

    This product is gentle and effective. I think it is great for minimising aging as it is gentle and doesn’t dry out my skin.
  5. Great.. if you dont wear makeup

    Allison

    Was looking for something suitable for my sensitive dry skin..however I do like to wear a bit of makeup in the day and this did not remove all traces for me.. I found I was washing 3 times by the time I got most of it off. The bottle is also very small. I'm a big fan of ordinary beauty products, but this one is definite pass.
  6. Gentle

    Emma

    It is gentle, but doesn’t dissolve my everyday makeup too well - I find this works best after using micellar water first.
  7. Aww yes

    Suzanne

    Its wonderful for sensitive patches! Its just a tiny tube though, ill be through it in a month. :( sephora sells big ones, but im hoping Adore will catch up.
  8. Easy to use and gentle.

    Neysa

    Very gentle cleanser, I would highly suggest double cleansing if you have spf or makeup on as I don't find that this removes it all as well as cleansing completely.
    It felt good on the skin after it melted into my skin,
    Rubbing between my hands didn't do much but a little goes a long way.
  9. Smooth & Hydrating

    Hannah

    I have sensitive skin and do alot of physical labor so require cleansers that can both remove the dirt but still be hydrating. I have found the Squalane Cleanser to be the perfect oil to my foam. In other words, I use this cleanser as the first step on dry skin, then follow it with a foaming cleanser. The oil cleanser is extremely important for my skin as just a foam cleanser dries me out too much!
  10. Wish it came in a bigger size!

    Taegen

    I have been using this cleanser for about a month and have noticed my skin feeling super soft and hydrated. I’ve been following the suggested routine for pigmentation from the Adore Beauty blog. I haven’t noticed anything drastic in terms of a reduction in pigmentation but I would still recommend this product. I just wish it came in a bigger size.
  11. Soft and silky

    Anna

    This product leaves the skin so soft and silky. Cleans effectively without stripping the skin and leaving it feeling tight.
    Can take a moment or to, to melt on the skin, but when it does it is effortless to use. I have tied rubbing it between my fingers to get it a more liquid consistency as per the directions - but doesn't seem to work for me.
    It might be good if a 100ml size was also produced.
  12. Great, affordable cleanser

    Sylvia

    Great gentle and affordable cleanser! A little goes a long way. Maybe isn't super moisturising, but it doesn't leave skin feeling stripped either.
  13. Great cleanser, gets rid of my foundation in one wash

    Cherry

    This is a great cleanser. It has cleared my skin up immensely. I used to have blind pimples on my forehead but after using this for two weeks they disappeared.
  14. Love it

    Angela

    I started using The Ordinary after being told how great it was for the price, and one of the first products I bought included this cleanser. It is cream-to-oil cleanser which works well for my dry skin, yet no oily residue remains after rinsing. Gentle and very effective, you won’t be disappointed.
  15. Highly recommend

    Belinda

    I love this cleanser. It removes makeup perfectly and you don’t need much at all. Love it. My only complaint is that it doesn’t come in a large enough tube!
  16. Nice Cleanser but Needs a Larger Tube

    Carla

    This cleanser really does feel lovely on my dry/sensitive skin and is neither irritating nor stripping, but a little does not go a long way! It’s not an issue in the mornings when I don’t have much to wash off my skin, but if you’re using it to remove makeup, you’ll find you go through a fair amount of this in a short period of time unless you’re double cleansing with another product.
  17. Fantastic

    Kylie

    Just the smallest amount of this cleanser is required .. it reduces to an oil once rubbing on face. Feels nourishing and no tightness at all. Highly recommend!
  18. Great for every day use

    Marcia

    I have combination skin and blemishes and have seen a great improvement since using. I use twice a day and spend a couple of minutes rubbing it in before wiping away with warm water.
  19. A good first cleanse in a double cleanse routine!

    Amy

    I use this cleanser in the evening as a first step for removing my makeup. I use Estee Lauder double wear and this removes it soooo easily, I can even use it on my lashes to remove mascara with ZERO irritation. It doesn't strip my skin at all, has no weird scent and I feel like it does an awesome job. I do wish it came in a bigger size though.
  20. What a dream

    Rachel

    Feels delightful. I am definately getting this again!
  21. Great for sensitive skin

    Bre

    Highly recommend if you have sensitive skin. It’s beautiful and leaves my skin nice and clean without feeling stripped
  22. Unbeatable for the price

    Lydia

    I love this cleanser, it really does the job of emulsifying makeup and other buildup on your face at the end of the day and then easily rinses off. It's also not drying at all for me, and I have dry and sensitive skin. I wouldn't say it is hydrating but it's not drying. The PH is also within a good range for a face cleanser. It is now my second favourite cleanser (my favourite was slightly more hydrating), but I will be using it from now on as it is significantly cheaper than the one I previously used.
  23. Loved this product so much

    Sammie

    I am up to my second tube of this and love it a lot.

    Can you please consider making it in a larger tube?
  24. Great everyday cleanser

    Shay

    I use this in the AM and PM and you only need a little bit to cleanse the face, it's the perfect everyday cleanser and doesn't cost you an arm and a leg!
  25. adore this

    Sally

    I suffer from dry skin and this product keeps my skin very hydrated! I would recommend this to anyone!
  26. Gentle on skin but not for removing eye makeup

    Charlie

    I use this as my first cleanse followed by a cream cleanser. It's lovely and gentle on the skin and has a lot of slip so you don't need much. It doesn't do a great job of removing eye makeup which is why I probably won't repurchase. If this isn't a deal breaker for you it would be the perfect cleanser for a sensitive skin.
  27. Doesn't remove makeup very well

    Sandee

    I like The Ordinary products generally but this one was a let down. It says it removes makeup but it took 3 washes before it did. This happens every time I use it so I won't be buying this product again.

  29. Excellent

    Theresa

    I love this product and this is is the 2nd time I have repurchased it. It is very soothing and nourishing. After I use it, it doesn’t make my dry skin feel tight. I use it to take off my sunscreen.
    However, I do not wear makeup so I cannot say whether it can take that off.
  30. Just ok

    Bec

    I don’t really know what all the fuss is about, I wouldn’t say it’s a great cleanser. It’s cheap but I also don’t think it goes a long way so probably better off spending more on something more effective.
  31. not bad

    Lil

    its okay, it cleans anything on top of my skin but doesnt go as far to clean my pores or help my oily skin
  32. Awesome

    Lilly

    really helped clear my acne prone skin after consistent use, a little goes a long way without drying my skin
  33. Gentle and effective

    Kate

    Originally, I liked (but didn't love) this cleanser - but with extended use, I'm completely obsessed. Massive fan. I love the fact that it feels like my natural skin barrier is being supported, not damaged, yet my face is still gently and effectively cleansed. If I were wearing heavier makeup, I may double cleanse, but I've found that with light makeup use it works perfectly. It's effective, convenient, and the use of squalane in a cleanser is unique. I will definitely continue to repurchase.
  34. Unsure of this product

    Isabella

    This product is okay for the price. Not much product in the bottle. Works well as a cleanser but nothing special to it. I will stick to my usual cleanses.
  35. love this

    Raha

    I suffer from dry skin and this product keeps my skin very hydrated! I would recommend this to anyone! Removes make up extremely well, I was quite impressed!
  36. Feels so nice

    Sam

    I just started using this cleanser. I love how you put it in a dry face and rub it into an oil before you put it on. You don’t need much, so it lasts a long time! Love the feeling of my face after.
    I have dry skin, quite good skin, but it masked it feel smooth and soft after.
  37. So good!

    Angela Kay

    Melts away makeup so well, and leaves my face feel so refreshed afterwards.
  38. Worth trying

    Ati

    I really like this product ,warming it up in my hands turning it into a oil based cleanser it worked. I didn't react to it , after using the cleanser it made my dry skin softer , I would buy it again
  39. Pretty happy

    Hannah

    Still early days but I’m pretty happy with the cleanser. I’m using it in the shower and it’s gentle on my skin. I just need to remember to use it before I wet my face and hands!
  40. Need a bigger size

    Rin

    Great concept of cleanser but definitely need to come in a bigger size (I heard it’s happening). Remove make up well. Love the fact that it can be rinsed off with water.
  41. Way too oily

    Jeanne

    Found this one to be a bit odd with the application - had to apply to dry skin first and the texture was just way too oily despite being “oil free”.
  42. Not the best

    Hannah

    Unlikely to recommend. Didn’t love it. Felt like it didn’t remove make up properly and didn’t make my skin fee that good
  43. My favourite cleanser!

    Briony

    I’ve used plenty of oil cleansers like this one, and its very good- great value for what it is: melts away all makeup and is hydrating but not too much. I love to use it as step 1 in a double cleansing. It has become a part of my routine, I recommend getting the new larger size.
  44. Helped with acne

    Kay

    Squalane cleanser has really really helped clear up my acne while exfoliating the dead, germy skin
  45. Gentle cleanser

    Marie

    This is a gentle cleanser in the Ordinary’s trademark no-frills packaging. Minimal scent. Creamy texture which goes on easily and washes off well leaving fresh, clean skin. Sometimes I want something that feels more exfoliating, but for day-to-day use this I’ve found this to be good for cleansing my skin without causing any drying or irritation.
  46. The best cleanser

    LN

    I have been trialling different products and came across The Ordinary Squalene Cleanser. I actually bought several products to suit my pigmentation. However, wow! This cleanser goes on dry almost like a coconut oil feel on the face. Once you rinse it off it leaves your face so soft! I love it, in fact it says make up remover as well. I had bb cream and blush on. It actually removed 95% of my make up off. Most cleansers leave your face dry. So i would really recommend anyone wanting a cleanser that actually leaves your face soft and smooth. As a regime i do use a mpisteriser but i think it could go without.
  47. Squalane cleanser spoilt with dud ingredient

    Louise

    Wonderful to use great ingredients EXCEPT Crosspolymer-6 a synthetic acrylics on danger list for skin care. Will throw out remaining product now I’ve checked ing
  48. Great non-drying makeup remover

    Ellen

    I use this in the first step of a double cleanse to remove makeup and it's great. Removes makeup without drying the skin, I actually use this as soon as I get home from work then do my second foaming cleanse just before bed as my skin feels ado nice after using it. Very impressed but wish it came in a larger bottle!
  49. Does the job

    Grace

    I didn't love this cleanser, however it did the job just fine. I use a Foreo Luna Play and found this product didn't really work well with it. In saying that, the directions do say to rub in your hands until it turns into an oil. Would still recommend!
  50. Loving the silky, none drying feeling

    Sammie

    This product surprised me. Go on dry skin and by simply warming it and changing the cream into an oil.
    My skin feels clean without feeling dry
  51. Gentle cleanser with an oily finish

    Katherine

    I love the Ordinary products and was excited to try their cleanser. I've been using it at night as a double cleanse. It's very gentle and requires a bit of scrubbing with a muslin cloth to remove makeup and leaves an oily feel on the skin. Definitely not drying, but is possibly a bit too gentle. Haven't used it in the mornings and I think I will be on the hunt for another cleanser to use in tandem with this.
  52. Mild cleanser

    Maryanne

    I have combination skin, it doesn’t leave me dry which is great. But, not great at taking off makeup. Maybe if you done where much it would be ok. I find I have to do it at least 3 times to remove what a miclar water does in 1.
    But I use it on days I don’t wear make up.
  53. Gentle Clean

    Jessica

    I used to use a salicylic acid cleanser but since switching to this I realised how much irritation it was causing. I have dry sensitive skin prone to breakouts, which is tricky to balance.

    The Squalane goes on a very light oil, which washes off quite well in warm water. It leaves some residue, but by the end of my shower and after drying off my skin feels soft, not greasy.

    I use this every second day, and usually follow with Glycolic acid, then Niacinamide, HA, and Moisturising factors.
  54. Decent cleanser.

    Courtney

    I used this on my dry, acne prone skin to remove my makeup. I found I had to use a LOT of product to remove the makeup, often with the help of a face washer. I would mainly use this as part of a double cleansing routine, just to remove my makeup before cleansing with something active. Did the job, but nothing life changing.
  55. Amazing

    Lisa

    I’ve come from using Dermalogica Ultracalming cleanser
    As my skin is sensitive I was reluctant to try this product.
    All I can say is THIS IS AMAZING!!!
    It removes a full face of makeup effectively as well as leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturised without any irritation.
    Best of all the price of this product is unbelievable
  56. BANG for your BUCK

    Casey

    This was one of the first Ordinary products I ever purchased. As an introductory product, I have been hooked on this brand since. The cleanser has a beautiful creamy texture that melts to be a beautiful oil. One of the best things about this cleanser is my skin doesn't feel as though it has been completely stripped of its natural oils after use.
  57. Love it

    M

    So effective for removing makeup at the end of the day. Melts my mascara off.. but so gentle and once rinsed my face feels so clean, yet plump and hydrated! Never tight or dry. Game changer cleanser for me
  58. Doesn’t dry

    Charlie

    I feel like this cleans my skin without drying it. I hop out of the shower and my face looks brighter and I’m not racing for the moisturiser immediately. If I wore heavy makeup I may use this as a primary or secondary cleanser, if I doubled up
  59. Great product

    Kylie

    This product is great. I have really sensitive skin and haven’t had any bad reactions to this product.
  60. Great product, leaves skin feeling super soft

    Jenna

    I have normal to oily skin and this product is amazing! I love that it goes on dry skin with your hands, saves a lot of messing about with water or sponges. Leaves the skin feeling super soft afterwards after cleansing everything away.
    Highly recommend!
  61. mild cleanser

    Abbie

    This is really mild cleanser, I wouldn't only use this product. I definitely needed to either use this 2/3 times to get all my make up and dead skin off or use this with another product for an efficient clean. I will probably keep this as just a pre cleanse as it was so cheap and affordable.
  62. Great!

    Kahli

    Using this as a pre-cleanse has helped my winter ravaged skin to not feel so dry. Comes out white and balmy but warming it up on the skin turns it translucent and moderately thick. On application to the face it feels thick but spreads out really well.

    Unlike some other balmy cleansers, it doesn't feel greasy on the skin after you wash it off.
  63. Not the best

    Hannah

    I purchased this cleanser due it's great price and reviews. I wasn't overly impressed. It's a very oily textured cleanser and I feel it didn't really remove my makeup or do much at all. I had to follow on with my usual cleanser to really clean my skin. Personally won't be purchasing again, it wasn't for me.
  64. Great and soothing

    Theresa

    I enjoy the product, it slides nicely onto my skin and I use it at night as my only cleanser. I don’t wear makeup so it is hard for me to determine whether this cleanser could remove it however, it is perfect for removing my sunscreen.
  65. Please make a bigger size

    Kylie

    Perfect cleanser for me. No irritation when taking eye makeup off, love the consistency & ease of washing off.. just wish it was larger than 50ml.
  66. Gentle cleanser. Doesn’t remove my makeup

    Storm

    It’s a gentle cleanser, feels nice going on but doesn’t really do much. I still have makeup on after cleansing.
  67. Larger size needed!

    Sha

    Works well to get rid of makeup without stripping natural moisture from skin. Wish it came in a larger size unfortunately
  68. Affordable product

    Bianca

    Great affordable product, washes face clean of any makeup leaving it fresh. Dont be disguised by its price really loving it.
  69. LOVE IT

    Maddie

    this cleanser is amazing! I have sensitive, oily skin and this cleanser is so good for my skin! It controls my face and doesn't make it break out at all, it doesn't make it too dry and keeps it hydrated. Definitely recommend!!
  70. Great face wash

    Tamara

    I was suggested to try this face wash and I am glad I did, It gets rid of all my stubborn make up (even waterproof mascara) and seeing as my skin is oily its been one of the only "oil based cleansers" I have found that haven't broken me out. I usually use this as my first cleanse.
  71. Good

    Alice

    I like using ordinary products and this is another good one. I use an oil cleansing method before and then use this cleanser and my skin is left clean.
  72. Great texture!

    Wynona

    I really enjoy using this cleanser in the morning. It gives me an opportunity to let the water heat up before it touches my skin and the texture is just lovely to use. I haven't used it to take makeup off yet but I have used it every morning for the last 3 weeks and it doesn't strip your face like normal facewashes so it's nice to wake up and feel hydrated.
  73. Nice

    Larissa

    I like the texture of this cleanser and it works well on most of my makeup. Not great on mascara & eyeliner. It’s non drying which is great from my normal to dry skin. It is also un-scented, which I like.
  74. Non-drying

    Mart

    It took some time for my mature skin to adjust to this cleanser as I have been so used to using harsh cleansers that stripped my skin of natural oils. A few weeks in and I am very happy with the moisturising effect of this cleanser, as well as the effectiveness in removing make up. Definitely not to be underestimated.
  75. Moisturising cleanser with

    Denny

    I like this cleanser a lot because the oily cream works on my older dry skin. The granuals are a little disconcerting but got used to them quickly. I experienced some discomfort/ slight burning but that has since disappeared.
  76. Nice first cleanse

    Jessica

    If you like double cleansing and need a new first cleanse this could be it! It's gentle, yet effective and doesn't aggravate my acne-prone skin. The only problem is that the bottle is very small - hopefully the Ordinary bring out a bigger size!
  77. Mature skin + long wear full cover foundation

    Sarah

    39 yrs old. I wear long wear, full cover foundation daily. I usually double cleanse out of necessity, but tried this and it smashed my makeup! Very surprised and I confirmed with a clean cotton pad after I stepped out of my shower (I cleansed before I got in and rinsed in the shower). Spotless!!
  78. Another great Ordinary product

    Alex

    Leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean! I use this as the second step in my cleansing routine, I first remove my makeup with an oil based cleanser. Works well with my dry combination skin.
  79. I love it

    Brooke

    It only loses a star because I haven't seen a HUGE improvement in my acne but overall I like it a lot. I didn't use it right at first but once I actually read the instructions it was amazing :P
  80. Double cleansing winner!!!

    Stacey

    If you love to double cleanse using an oil first this product is for you! I've used countless cleansing oils and balms and find this one by far the easiest and cleanest! Easy to dispense a pea sized amount...warm in hands and melt away makeup on dry skin then remove with warm washcloth...I have combination skin and totally believe this will suit all skin types
  81. Lovely

    mia

    this product is honestly amazing! it leaves my skin so clean and hydrated! definitely recommend to those with acne prone and dry skin!
  82. Gentle but no wow factor

    Marcella

    I’m a total believer in The Ordinary line so definitely wanted to love this but I found it much less than I thought it would be. It’s certainly a gentle cleanser, it didn’t remove as well as I thought it should and I don’t wear heavy makeup so that was surprising. It did leave my skin without that tight feeling which was good but overall it just didn’t pack the punch that had been hyped. It also didn’t go very far in terms of amount of uses, probably because I had to use more to get it to work. I won’t be repurchasing unfortunately, but I still love TO!
  83. Interesting formula, leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.

    NatalieO

    Love this cleanser! I haven’t used it to remove makeup yet but after use my skin feels clean and hydrated. I have somewhat dry, sometimes sensitive skin which has reacted wonderfully to this gentle cleanser. Takes a little while to work into an oil however could just be because of the cold temperature at the moment. Overall a great cleanser for an amazing price!
  84. Glides on and feels clean

    Tiffany

    Beautiful product ! So cheap for the quality of product! Has nice clean smell glides on face so smoothly takes away all makeup without drying face out! I have really sensitive skin and it works really well for me ! Love !
  85. Good different!

    Emily

    So to use this you warm the product on dry hands and apply to a dry face. It has an almost oil cleanser consistency. It's so gentle but absolutely does the job. The ordinary has definitely won me over again
  86. Excellent product

    CollinsL

    Was a bit sceptical when I bought this product at first - but IT WAS AMAZING. Leaves skin so clean but not dry. Highly recommend for those with acne and problem skin as it is very gentle yet effective. It is on the smaller size price wise- but much better than anything else out there.
  87. Nice.

    Jenna

    Just nice, nothing too special about this one. I was so happy when I saw the Ordinary had a cleanser, but it leaves my skin feeling no different. I like something a with a little more oomph.
  88. AMAZING

    Laura

    This is such a good face wash!!! it makes my skin feel so clean and soft, it definitely gets all the dirt out and even helps clear my acne I love this so much
  89. Unique product.

    Kate

    This cleanser is unique in the sense that it is applied to dry skin and becomes an almost oily solution once rubbed in. When the product is washed off it leaves my face feeling soft and moisturised, unlike a lot of other cleaners that dry out my skin. I use it each morning and will continue to. Great quality for money too!
  90. Love

    Isobel

    I love the ordinary. This makes my skin more even, smooth, toned, and soft! An amazing product for the price and lasted a fair while considering the size of the bottle! Cleanses off makeup so well!
  91. Lovely cleanser overall, but not alot of Grunt

    Jenni

    I was stoked when The Ordinary brought out a cleanser and so excited to try it. As I mentioned in my summary, it's a lovely overall cleanser but for anyone who wears a fairly heavy coverage of makeup, you will find this cleanser does not remove it in one go round. Maybe if you wear a bb or cc cream instead of a long wear foundation it might be a different scenario. It's also a REALLY small tube considering the amount you need to use to be able to cover your entire face as it tells you to apply it on dry skin.
    In saying all that it's got a lovely consistency to it and it doesn't leave any kind of residue on your face and leaves your skin feeling quite soft.
    I'll continue using it and will just double cleanse or single cleanse and then use micellar water to get the remaining makeup off.
  92. frickin amazing

    meij

    SOOOOOO GOOD removes all makeup and leaves skin hydrated, doesn't strip skin. Also squalane is amazing for skin as it is naturally found in the skin
  93. Gentle cleanser but no "oomph"

    Tanika

    I use this every second day as it is smooth and GENTLE on the skin. Leaves your face feeling super soft. However, I feel it lacks the strength to remove make up as well as cleanse your face without having to repeat 2-3 times. Hence the emphasis on "gentle"
  94. SOOOOO GOOD

    This product removes absolutely all of my makeup after using it with the ordinary squalane cleansing gel. It is so gentle on the skin as well and you only need a small amount it lasts forever.

  96. Perfectly cleansed skin

    I love a cleanser that can be put on dry skin as I’m lazy when it comes to cleansing. Leaves skin feeling clean but not right and effectively removed all debris. I have dehydrated skin and it didn’t dry me out.
  97. Great for removing makeup but feels like a travel size version.

    I'm a massive fan of The Ordinary and I was so excited when they released a cleanser! The size is a little disproportionate to the price as far as The Ordinary's average prices go, but perhaps the ingredients are worth it (I'm not sure). All the same, I bought it as soon as I could.

    It doesn't seem to contain any artificial fragrances, which is good. The texture is light, smooth, and creamy. It's recommended that you rub the product between your hands until warming to form an oil-like texture, but this was hard to do without using a notable amount (considering the product size) without it being absorbed by my hands. The same goes when (as recommended) I applied it to my face without dampening it first, so I've been adding a little water before doing so, which I'm unsure how much it affects the intended outcome.

    Upon adding water, the formula melts into a milk-like texture, taking any combined makeup with it. Pretty satisfying. It removes makeup better than any other cleanser I've used so far. I have combination skin that is more oily than dry and is quite resilient unless I overuse acids sometimes. I found this to be very soft on my skin even when my skin is on the more sensitive side, and it doesn't irritate my eyes unless it carries some mascara into them.

    I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it to a friend, but I would still praise its makeup removing abilities. I think the size to cost ratio isn't proportionate to the recommended use of the product. If I were to use it accordingly, it would only last for a few weeks. It feels more like a travel size version. If this changed, I would be giving a 5-star rating.
