Lancaster Express Cleanser is one of my all time most used micellar cleansers. It removes my every day make-up without a problem. It is also not irritating to my oily and acne-prone skin.
Claims from the manufacturer:
3-in-1 express cleanser that cleanses and tones face and eyes in one go.
A non-oily, flower-based formula for all skin types.
Dermatologically & ophthalmologically tested.
Every day, whatever your age, to deeply and thoroughly remove face and eye makeup, impurities and maximize penetration of face creams.
All-in-one for all skin types with a ritual of Soothing Flowers, Purifying Witch Hazel and Soothing Lemon Balm.
Directions (not listed on the manufacturer’s website):
Apply with a cotton pad. No need to rinse. (that’s all it says on the bottle besides the description of what this product does).
Ingredients (not listed on the manufacturer’s website):
Water, Methyl Gluceth-20, Poloxamer 184, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzophenone-4, Benzyl Salicylate, BHT, Buthylphenyl Methypropional, Citric Acid, Citronellol, Disodium Phosphate, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxyisohexyl, 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Linaloolm Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PPG-26-Buteth-26, Propylene Glycol, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Trisodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum, FD&C Red No 40 (CI 16035), FD&C Yellow No 5 (CI 19140)
For me this cleanser is one of my “go-for-it” products because I find the packaging very handy due to the presence of a pump. On the top of that It doesn’t irritate my eyes when I remove my mascara with it. Beware – Express Cleanser does not remove waterproof mascara. It is also less effective at removing the lip stains and matte liquid lipstick. If your make-up routine is very simple, it may be a good option for you.
The liquid inside the bottle has a peachy tint to it and it has very fresh floralscent to it. I like this smell but for some of you it may be to strong as even after an hour later when you are done removing your make-up it will remain on your skin. The consistency is identical to water, very runny and the product dries fast on the skin.
I think I will switch over to something new after this bottle is done. I am in that place when I’m bored with the product and want to try something else.
+ Sulfate and paraben free

+ Easy to find in stores
– Contains alcohol and fragrance
– Opposite to the claims of manufacturer in my opinion it does not suit very dry and extra sensitive skin types
– Full-price is quite high for a micellar-toning water
– Lack of information about the product provided by the manufacturer
