Lancer The Method Review
Hello All, it's been a bit since I've written a formal review on the site, but it's also be a while since something warranted such long form written communication... until now.
A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to receive Dr. Lancer's "The Method Line" and challenged to give up my normal skin care routine to try it out for 2 weeks, well... here's what it was like!
The Lancer Method consists of 3 products, Polish, Cleanse, and Nourish. I also received Lancer's Eye Contour Lifting Cream which I'll talk about, but it's not technically part of the Method, but included in the Anti-Aging Regimen I tested. These are all part of a line created by Dr. Harold Lancer who's worked with celebrities such as Kim Kardashian West and Ryan Secrest, but he's produced a line for us mortals, if we can afford it. The line is defiantly in the luxury price point, and sometimes you get what you pay for, other times, you just don't. I'm going to break down the line and tell you which parts are worth the splurge, and which are not, so keep going!
This physical exfoliator is made up of "nano-micro crystals" and enzymes from pumpkins and pomegranates. Having recently parted ways with my beloved chemical exfoliants due to the mini human going in my belly, I was pretty excited to find something to help me fight the dullness that was creeping in from a lack of retinol. Using this as the first step was different from my normal routine, but I liked that everything felt scrubbed off, but not in a harsh way. After just the first use I could see why this was the stand out favorite from many reviews. It doesn't feel like much is happening, and when you wipe it off, magic, you have that glowing nose, you know the one we're always trying to create with highlighter? Yup, there it is, naturally. At $75, this is defiantly an investment in your skin, but I did find that a little goes a long way. I find this to be worth the price, good physical exfoliators that don't tear your skin are expensive in my research, this one delivers and lasts a long time, so if you have the budget... go for it!
Next we have Cleanse, it felt weird to use this after polish, but once your face has been polished it feels so good to message this into your skin. This cleanser is in gel form, and feels similar to the Fresh cleanser everyone loves. This one is packed with amino acids and aloe vera to balance your skin. It feels great, and isn't drying, but I can't say this one is worth it unless your set on using the full line or getting it as a set. Don't get me wrong, this was a great cleanser, but there are so many great cleansers at a much more affordable price point that it would have taken magic for this to be worth the price.
WHY DID YOU SHOW ME THIS!?!?!?!? Nourish is the moisturizer, and last step in the routine. It's also the most expensive, and I'm hooked! This creamy moisturizer full of hyaluronic acid and hexapeptide-48 not only moisturizes, heavily for my tired dry skin, it doesn't make you break out or feel oily... plus, at 5 p.m. I still feel moisturized! My skin is typically Indio by 5 p.m.! This is gold, pack your lunch, make room in the budget... get it!!!!
Eye Contour Lifting Cream
This was an added treat it the set I was sent. It's supposed to brighten circles, reduce wrinkles, and reduce puffiness. I'm the wrong person to ask about eye cream, it moisturized, but I never see a difference in eye cream, it could totally be doing something, but that something is lost on me. If you get the kit I linked above, let me know what you feel. I will probably not buy this again, but not because it's bad, but because I don't know what I want out of eye cream.
After one use of this set I defiantly saw and felt a positive change in my skin and was stoked. I wasn't actually sure if I though there was much of a difference after that, and that this product even needed 2 weeks of testing, but my husband's comments suggested otherwise. I got way more "You look extra pretty todays" towards the end of this testing. I also love how fresh my makeup looks after this. I know the goal is no makeup, but my skin tint goes on extra smooth, and I'm not seeing a patchy fade of bronzer which I've seen with some other moisturizers. If you have dry or dull skin, I would recommend trying The Lancer Anti-Aging Regimen ($135) I linked above. It's spend-y, but if skin is your splurge, this set is worth a try.
I received the above products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster and Dr. Lancer. The opinions are my own thoughts.
