5 reviews for 80% Squalane

    I immediately fell in love with this product. It is perfect for acne prone skin. A little goes a long way,honestly 3 drops is enough. This gives me such a nice glow combined with my sunscreen and retinol and is very effective in hydrating my skin. Normally before I apply my sunscreen the day after using the retinol my skin would be peeling and very dry,it was very much noticeable but ever since I started apply this before my sunscreen all that stopped been a problem. It also helped take away the white cast from the ss and not to mention the glow it gave

    Game changer! I get bouts of dermatitis along my hairline which was gone over night after using this oil. I also get sensitivity around my eyes and dry patches – all gone! Absolutely love this stuff.

    My skin went through a dry patch during the winter months and due to recent changes to my skincare regime. The first time I tried this serum, I woke up the next day with super dry and patchy skin; I shelved it for two weeks before trying it again. It has since become a staple in my morning and nighttime routine, I even use it on my hands. It significantly reduced redness, skin sensitivity and dryness within days. It also layers very well with other products, including sunscreen. I have been using this serum for about two months now and I *highly* recommend it.
