”WILL NEVER BE WITHOUT THIS PRODUCT!!!! I had severe redness, heat and peeling due to my retin A and adverse reaction to face wipes. I had a huge event I was going to that evening and so I ran around to Sephora, bare minerals, and Ulta with no avail to any product that worked (they all actually made it worse). When I arrived home, my package had arrived with the Squalane and I put it on….Nothing short of a miracle!!! It immediately reduced the redness and the peeling completely disappeared. WOW. I am in love with this little bottle and am now a devotee to this AMAZING company for their efforts in making skin care affordable and effective. Thank you so much for saving the day!!!!”

”LOVE LOVE LOVE. This is a very light dry oil that absorbs quickly into my skin for instant glow and moisture without feeling overly heavy. I don’t think I could have gotten through the Retinol uglies without Squalane. It worked perfectly to sooth irritated skin and reduce the visible appearance when my face started flaking. Throughout the summer I only used it when my face needed some TLC but with the cold dry winter fast approaching I will start using it every day.”

Saved my dry, flaky skin!

I have dry skin and it can get bad with flaky patches all over my face. I found out that squalane was a great ingredient to combat surface dryness so I picked this up. I wasn’t really expecting it to completely heal my skin but to my surprise, it did! After consistently using this for about a week, I already saw an improvement and my skin felt softer and smoother. I also like mixing this to my foundation which has a bit of a dry formulation and I find that it sits better on my skin. The oil is quite heavy so I’d recommend this to those with dry skin or if you have dry spots you want to spot treat.

Part of my night time routine!!!

Having an acne breakout was the hardest to treat since I use a lot of drying treatments c/o the derma. I needed a moisturizer that wont combat the effects of the AHAs and BHAs. This is perfect! I only use it at night though since I’m not sure if it could hold up in the am (i have oily-combination skin). Though at night, it really does hydrate my face without the greasy oily feel. I love this and is now a staple!!!

hydrates and smoothens skin!

I loooove this. Bought this to mix with essential oils and other the ordinary products but ended up using it alone because it just feels so nice on my skin. Not icky but not too light, it helped my skin smoothen up and be more elastic/bouncy after consistent day and night application for weeks. Definitely definitely a staple in my beauty shelf.

The oil for me

I’ve been using this as a moisturiser for six months now and I love it. I have sensitive combination skin and it’s so hard to find a suitable moisturiser that does not trigger breakouts nor small white bumps. It is odourless and lasts for a long time. A drop or two is enough for the whole face and another drop if you want to extend it to your neck area right after shower. Anything more might be too much with our weather if used as daytime moisturiser. This is my first oil moisturiser so I can’t compare it to other similar products but I am so satisfied with this one that I don’t think that I’ll try other products in the meantime.

Makes my face soft and supple

I had a breakout last December because of the weather. I have read a lot of positive reviews about squalane oil, so I purchased it. I put two drops of it on my gel moisturizer. The effect is sooo goooood! I massage my face every time I put this on. It makes my face so soft. No more dehydrated skin! It doesn’t break me out too. I love this oil so much!! It’s so underrated!

Love this!

I've been using this for a month and this changed my moisturizer/hydrator game. Upon researching about Squalane, I just knew that I have to buy this one. I was using Rosehip Oil before this and I prefer this one because it absorbs faster and less greasy than the Rosehip Oil. I use this in my night routine and I noticed that my face didn't oil up the next morning as it used to, could be that since my skin is hydrated, it doesn't over reproduce my skin's natural oils aside from it being absorbed much faster. Do your patch test first, as with any other new products. But I really recommend this if you want to use face oils but don't want the super greasy part.
