Product Review

You guys! Hands down. Best mask for spot treating blemishes!!!
7F36F8DC-F0A4-403E-AD4C-762992AE2CA5
It comes in a huge jar as well, but I hate masks that I have to dip my fingers in. So these smaller ones in tubes  are better.

A Thought… 💭

So I’ve come to the decision that once my second set of Omorovicza products are finished (I’m almost there) I’m diving head first into everything LA MER!!! I’ve been reading about the line and I wannna try it all. I will still keep the products from Omorovicza that I’m obsessed with, which I’ll tell you guys about soon, but I wanna try everything from La Mer.
Here are the products I’m mainly interested in:
The Concentrate
The Regenerating Serum
The New Moisturizing Soft Lotion
The Eye Concentrate
The New Perfecting Treatment
The Cleansing Gel
The Lip Balm
If any of you guys have used any of these products and have REAL feedback on them I would love to hear it. Thanx guys!
XoXo,
Anyut

    Hi Anush. I have only tried the moisturizing lotion and a few samples and it was too heavy for me and did not absorb quickly. It also made my skin very oily. I have been told that the line is best for older women. You definitely don’t need such heavy products you’re still young and have a beautiful skin. I would highly recommend Chantecaille. Ask for samples and try it out. La mer and la prairie are both very heavy for your age.

      Thnx Larisa! I’ll look into chantecaille skin care, I just picked up a perfume from that line 4 days ago at Neimans. Smells soooo good!

    Hi Anyut,

    I would recommend using their new foundation and powder. Their makeup line is great. I like their lip balm and find their creams take forever to absorb as well.

      I have their translucent powder but apparently they refomulated it and repackaged it now. Interesting to know about their moisturizers. Thnx for the feedback!

    Hi Anush,

    I have also only tried the moisturizer and I have normal skin and I felt like it was extremely greasy. It might be good to put on at night during the colder months to give your skin time to absorb it but otherwise not something I would purchase personally, I felt like it made my makeup break up too. I definitely prefer the la prairie moisturizer over la Mer though.

    Good luck

    The Concentrate is one of the best purchase you will ever buy. I love to use it after a chemical peel. It’s amazing. I just recently purchased the New Moisturizing Soft Cream as it was recommended to me for my skin type as I found the Creme de La Mer too heavy. I have also tried the Lip Balm twice. The first time, I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not so gave it another shot… & didn’t like it. But, that was about 3 years ago, so I may try it again.

      Hi Rachael! Thnx for the tips. I’m looking into the Concentrate and even though it has great soothing properties, it doesn’t seem like something I would get daily use out of. Everything else in the line everyone has so-so things to say about. So for now I’m gonna stick to Omorovicza and Sunday Riley since they are working great for me. Thnx so much for following ❤️️

      Hi Amy, you should call Angela Nice and see if she can do anything about that, or maybe she can refer you to someone who can.

ReStocking

I recently ran out of my Good Genes and Tidal moisturizer. Good Genes I have been using for a long time now, but Tidal was a new product for me and I really liked it A LOT, so I decided to get another tub. I use it every night after toning and applying eye cream.

    Hey, really enjoy your posts! I’ve been using Sunday Riley myself and absolutely love her products. I saw in your posts that you are pregnant, that’s awesome! Congratulations! Just wanted to ask seeing as that some of her products mention not to use them if you are pregnant. Was just curious to know if you’re still using them now and if it’s safe, you know for future reference lol e.g., Luna, which is Retinol based.

Lancer and Colbert MD

Hey Guys,

I am in love with the combination of these 2 divine Doctors. My skin care routine has become a collaboration between these 2 lines and I am very happy with the results I am seeing thus far.
image
I’ll start from left to right with Lancer.

NIGHT:
I wash off my make up with the usual Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil, or my FAB Face Cleanser depending on what mood I’m in. I will follow with the Lancer Polish (AMAZING) and then the Lancer Cleanser. After drying my face,  I apply the Eye Contour Lifting Cream, then the Rextexturizing Treatment Cream with Glycolic Acid 10x, and then the Intensive Night Treatment.

Now for DAYTIME:
I might rescrub my face, might not. Most of the time I won’t. So my first step is to wash my face with the Cleanser using my Boscia Konjac Sponge. I WILL NEVER STOP USING THIS SPONGE, IT’S GOD GIVEN. Anyway, I’ll dry my face, apply the Eye Contour Lifting Cream, then the Advanced C Radiance Cream: Vitamin C Collagen, let it sit a moment and then (now here is where it gets tricky). Since I got pregnant the smell of the Lancer Nourish Cream realllllly bothers me. So I went to Space NK back then and asked for another daytime moisturizer. One that was moisturizing enough for my NOW dry skin. That’s when they gave me samples to these 2 beauties:
image
After using the samples for about a week I went and got the products. I still keep my Lancer Nourish cause (hoping to use it one day) but I am so obsessed with Colbert that Lancer Nourish can take a backseat for the time being. So back to daytime routine, after my Vitamin C I will take 2 pumps of Colbert Nitrify & Protect Day and mix it with 1 pump of Colbert Illumino Face Oil. After 1 min I will apply Lancer Sheer Fluid Sun Shield SPF 30, unless I forget which happens -__-.

And there you go guys, my extensive but surprisingly quickly performed skin care routine. *Lancer Retexturizing 10x is pretty similar to Sunday Riley Good Genes. My Sunday products (which were GREAT) are on hold while I experiment with these 2 lines. I am very happy with my skin since using these products. I’ll keep you guys posted of any changes.

XoXo,
Anyut

    I’m looking for something to change the texture of my skin. Has the lancer texturizing serum changed the texture of your skin?

      Hi Somaya, my skin definitely feels smoother, with no uneven skin texture.

Nighttime Skincare Regimen

Hey Guys,

I wanted to post a quick nighttime skincare regimen in case my last post about my skincare was too detailed or confusing for some. So here is a picture of the products I use every night (I just used them all):
image
Going from left to right: I removed my make up with the Cleansing Oil, scrubbed with the polish, cleansed with the cleanser, applied the eye cream, then the retexturizing cream, and finally the Luna oil.

DR. LANCER

Hi Guys,

Sorry I made you all wait so long for the skin care post. I have enjoying my few days off. I start my last term next week, and I can only imagine how hectic it will be. Anyway, here we go:

I’d like to start off by saying that unlike both my sisters, some of friends, and other beautiful girls that I know, I do not have “perfect” skin. I have always had to make sure I use the right products because my skin is definitely blemish prone and has discolorations. I can go days with clear skin and feel amazing, but then I’ll suddenly feel a nasty blemish or 2 coming on -_-. HATE IT!

A few weeks ago my skin started going out of control, like never before!!! It took me a minute to realize that this was due to the fact that my IUD “the mirena” which I have had for the past 5 years was expiring, and the hormonal changes were causing my skin to go ape shit. After removing the IUD last month, I decided to look into serious skin care. Up until now I have been using different products from different lines, which had been working for me, but I wanted to invest in ONE line and stick to it. So after much research here is what I decided to go with:
image
I had heard so much about Dr. Lancer skin care, especially from the ladies at Nordstrom every time I would go to pick up my Murad toner or Arcona scrub. So after days and days of research about the line I decided to give it a shot. It has been over 2 weeks that I have been using it and I have definitely been seeing a difference in my skin.

Here is a breakdown of what I purchased:
The polish: It’s basically a scrub. In the Lancer Skin Care method you have to scrub your face every single day prior to cleansing it. I know it sounds crazy but when you think about it, it makes sense. His theory is that in order for the cleanser to really clean yours skin, you must first remove the dead skin. I only Polish at night.

The Cleanser: So since I use this after my polish, it’s obviously not meant to take my make-up off. If you guys remember I used my FAB cleanser for the longest time to remove my make up and then I followed it with the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser to cleanse. I stopped using these even though I loved them. Now I use the Boscia Cleansing Oil, I apply it to my dry face with my dry hands, then I take a wet facial cloth, wipe off all the make-up and move onto the polish. After the polish I will cleanse (by the way I dont use my hands for the cleanser, I use the Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge). I use the cleanse every night after polishing but in the mornings I don’t polish. I just cleanse.

Eye Contour Lifting Cream: I use the eye cream every single day and night. This is both tightening and moisturizing. Which is exactly what I was looking for in an eye cream.

Advanced C Radiance Cream, Vitamin C Collagen Cofactor 10x: I use this Vitamin C cream every morning. So I will cleanse, apply eye cream, apply the Vitamin C cream, then my Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion.

Retexturing Treatment Cream Glycol Acid 10x:  I use this amazing treatment at nights only. This product is good for uneven skin tone, power resurfacing.  It can be used twice a day, but I choose to only use it at night, after washing my face and applying my eye cream. I still use my Luna Oil from Sunday after the Retexturing Tx, but I might switch over to the Lancer night moisturizer.

Volume Enhancing Lip Serum: Love this stuff! I use it day and night. But I don’t carry it around with me. I leave it at home and use it in the am and pm.

I did not get the day time moisturizer by Lancer. I went and got a sample of it, and after using it for 2 days and 2 nights I realized that it’s making my skin oily. I tried both the one for blemish prone and the combination skin. So I am style using my Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion. Oh and I forgot to mention, since the Lancer Method doesn’t include a toner, I have temporarily stopped using my Murad Clarifying Toner, which I love, just to see the full effect of only using Lancer.

That’s all my loves!

XoXo,
Anyut

    This line sounds great, thanks for sharing! Have you ever tried retin-a? You need a prescription but It’s great for controlling breakouts, hyper pigmentation, and preventing wrinkles (at least in my experience).

      Hi Natalia, the Luna Oil from Sunday Riley that I use at night after my retexturizing cream has retinol in it. But I’m sure not as concentrated at phamaceutical grade retin-a.
