Ascending Butterfly Editor's Pick, Sponsored By:


This summer has been hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk, and it has just begun. I don't know about you, but the heat and the excessive sweating it produces, leaves my skin particularly my face, feeling less than pretty. The sweat causes product to run and tends to clog my pores. And while I don't suffer from sensitive skin in any way, I do find that my skin is more reactive in summer than any other season. I try to combat it every year with the 'less is more theory' of summer product usage, but let's face it, life usually speeds up in the summer, it certainly does NOT slow down.

I have been attending MORE events this summer than ever somehow, which means that tinted mouisturizer alone was NOT going to cut it for me. I've had to constantly put my best 'skin forward' from day into night all week long (and quite a few concurrent weekends) and in doing so, it's required more effort on my part.

There are one of two types of ladies out there, the ones that HAVE to wash off every last trace of makeup before bed and the ones whose heads hit the pillow even if they have make up on. I am lady number one. I can't go straight to bed without getting the make up off. And when I clean my face, I want it to feel clean and not every product leaves me with that feeling after I use it. And my litmus test with facial products has always been the same. If I feel the need to use an astringent after I've cleansed my face, that product did NOT do the job in my book.

I'm happy to say that I found my 'squeaky clean feeling' solution! And it's as easy as 1, 2, and 3! I have been using the Lancer Method and will admit my face is becoming quite spoiled! I've had the opportunity to try quite a few products since I've started on this roller-coaster ride called 'blogging', but I very rarely get nervous about what is going to happen about when I run out. This time, I am.

With a simple, daily 3-step program, the LancerRX products bring improvements in fine lines, texture, discoloration and pore size in about a week. I want to be sure that I relay  'The Method' completely and in it's entirety, so the following is from the website and I will follow with my opinions of each product:


Step 1: Polish/Exfoliate

The Lancer RX Polish is an advanced exfoliator, removing dull, dead skin cells and leaving the skin noticeably smoother and more radiant. The Natural Sea Minerals immediately energize the skin without causing redness (even for people with roacea) and prepare it for effective cleansing.


Step 2: Cleanse

Once the skin is rid of debris, it is ready to be cleansed. The Lancer RX Cleanser washes away impurities & environmental toxins while bringing a uniform freshness to the skin.



Step 3: Repair

After the skin has been polished and prepped it is time for repair. The Lancer RX AM/PM Nourishing Treatment increases firmness, diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles and nourishes the skin with essential botanical extracts and powerful antioxidants.

For acne prone/oily skin types like me, I just wanted to pointed out that I also tried the Polish - Blemish Control, it is a gentle resurfacing polish containing natural exfoliating minerals from the Dead Sea and antibacterial Tea Tree Oil. This product removes surface skin cells while natural tea tree oil provides antibacterial action.  This product preps skin for the Repair Treatments (the third step). It leaves skin smoother, refined and with improved clarity. I am a long time believer in the power of tea tree oil for acne prone skin, and was delighted to know that Dr. Lancer's Polish Blemish Control contains this ingredient already, because I have been adding tea tree oil to other products for years!

The Skinny: I really love this system, Step 1 is by far my favorite, it gives me instant gratification, I can literally feel a huge difference in my skin after using it. My face just feels truly clean there is no other way to describe it. It's a deep clean feeling, that does NOT strip my skin of it's own mouisture or leave it dry. Most products, especially for acne/oily prone skin has a tendency to dry out my face even when I follow the instructions to the letter, these products don't do that. I have certainly noticed the improved clarity that is promised as well. I find my skin is clearer, and more radiant and I'm not going to be a happy camper when I run out, which as far as I'm concerned, says it all! When I tell you I would buy it even though I have access to a variety of skin care products, trust me, it's high praise indeed.

These products are paraben and cruelty-free! And please don't think this is Ladies only, I will have you know that a November 2008 issue of People declared that the 'Sexiest Man Alive, Hugh Jackman, swears by Lancer RX Repair' - now guys if that's not a ringing endorsement of being serious about your skincare, and about trying out these products, I don't know what is!

NOTE: Readers have asked us to make entering the contests and giveaways, faster and easier. Your wish is our command! We have moved our 'Today's Butterfly - Featured Site(s) of the day, which is where we host our giveaways, to the upper right hand side of the page. It will be located here from now on to make entering the giveaways faster and easier. Keep the suggestions coming, remember we also have a community group page with real time chat, you can give us your comments and suggestions in REAL time, how cool is that?

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow A Blog Publicly Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!
