Dr Lancer Skincare Review

Another great line I've recently discovered is Dr Lancer. I'd heard about the LA-based skin care wizard to the stars, and was keen to try his much-lauded Advanced Vitamin C Radiance cream.

Using high end, medical grade ingredients including retinol, vitamin C & Shea butter, it promises to restore lacklustre skin to luminosity by gently sloughing away pigmentation, UV damage, sun spots, and 'city face' wan. Vitamin C & retinol work synergistically to increase collagen production and cellular renewal, meaning younger, fresher skin.

I was particularly impressed with the texture which glided on and immediately absorbed to leave a velvety film, which felt like a second, almost protective skin.

Immediately my skin brightened, and within a few days, I could notice a difference in clarity. My skin seemed plumper and rosier despite a week of late nights.

I'm definitely impressed enough to try the rest of the range, and of course, the best part is it's completely cruelty-free.

ARE LANCER SKINCARE PRODUCTS CRUELTY FREE? 

Yes, our products are never tested on animals and don’t contain any animal by-products. Also, our sea algae is harvested from special algae farms as not to deplete the natural supply of ocean algae.

I use Lancer in conjunction with Metier De Beaute Instant Line Perfecting serum - another fantastic discovery. It works really well under the Lancer moisturiser and packs a powerful punch to fine lines, dullness and is particularly great for toning and lifting.

I'm generally quite sceptical when it comes to the hype around new beauty products, but in both cases, I was really impressed. They're not cheap, but the quality of the ingredients are premium grade, and they also last a long time. Great when you need to look your best and haven't time for facials!

Another amazing cruelty-free line.
