I entered an Instagram contest to win the experience of a life time. The grand prize was to receive a consultation from none other than celebrity dermatologist, Dr. Lancer. Dr. Lancer treats celebrities from Kim Kardashian to Ellen DeGeneres. The prize entailed airfare, hotel stay, consultation, a power peel, Lancer Skincare products and spending money all for two people.
My boyfriend and I flew into LAX and headed to the Carlyle Inn in Beverly Hills, CA. The hotel was gorgeous and super Instagram-able. The first night we headed straight to SUR Restaurant because I am a big Lisa Vanderpump fan. The restaurant was just as I had imagined gorgeous and delicious.
The next day we enjoyed our complimentary breakfast. Afterwards we headed straight to Dr. Lancer’s office. Dr. Lancer’s consultation was amazing. He broke down our heritage and learned the behavior of our skin which led to his product recommendation and routines for us individually. After we met with Dr. Lancer we received our power peels. The power peel uses a vacuum to shoot tiny crystals onto your skin, this removes a layer of outer skin. After that we were polished of and had a moist towel laid on us. We were then exposed to liquid nitrogen to freeze skin lesions.
Our skin looked and felt amazing afterward. My boyfriend even received a compliment at work the next day about his skin. We recently received our Dr. Lancer products and can’t wait to see the results.
After our consultation we roamed around Rodeo Drive, ate at Sugarfish (amazing sushi!), grabbed a pastry at Urth Caffe and then headed to the beach. I had never been to California before and this was really the way to do it. I’d like to thank Dr. Lancer and his wonderful team for creating not just a prize, but an experience.
