Lancer RX Dermatology AM/PM Nourishing Treatment
Normally, my combination skin ranges from dry to oily, with no rhyme or reason. Every morning is like flipping a coin – you just never really know what my skin will look like when I wake up. Recently I had the chance to try out the Lancer RX Dermatology skincare line, otherwise known as "The Lancer Method." Specifically, I used the Lancer RX Dermatology Cleanse Extremely Pure, Repair Am/Pm Nourishment, and Polish.

The directions for the Cleanse and Repair are to use both in the morning and at night, while the Polish is to be applied every other day or so. The three product combination was more than my usual routine of nightly face wash and daily anti-wrinkle/sunscreen/moisturizing cream (yes, all three in one – I’m an efficient girl who hates mornings, so time saved = time to sleep longer). So dedicating myself to this triage for a week was quite a commitment for me.

I used the Lancer RX Cleanse and Repair in the morning and at night, as recommended, until evening 3. When my boyfriend leaned in for a kiss goodnight and told me that my face smelled like his grandma, I decided that I would skip the Repair on nights that romance was anticipated.

My skin, however, was noticeably softer and cleaner by day 2. By day 3, my pores looked smaller. One downside was that my skin was definitely shinier, which makes me uncomfortable in that I tend to associate shiny with oily. Overall, I was impressed with the effects of the products and would recommend the triage for anyone not afraid of a time commitment in the morning and evening.
