So, aging! This is one of life’s most hotly debated topics – how does one reverse the signs of aging without extreme cosmetic assistance – whilst still aging gracefully?
We present the Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Serum. For this serum, Lancome have honed in on five main anti-ageing ingredients with proven efficacy. This product targets 48 skin proteins instead of two, tackling lines, age spots, dullness – you name it!
A few attest to the effectiveness of the product, according to Cosmo’s Beauty Lab tester, “I can’t profess to be an expert on age-defying potions, but I would say that it did feel like Lancome delivered instant results with its Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate. My skin felt smoother and clarified as soon as I put it on, and one month in it definitely feels like it makes a difference to how ‘fresh-faced’ I look…”
But does it do all it claims to? Here’s a take on rave product of the moment.
“I find that maintaining a good diet and exercising regime can work wonders for maintaining your skin’s youthful glow. It can also make your eyes seem brighter and more vigorous, which again adds to the perception of increased youth and vitality.
I recently received the Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate to help advance the preservation of my youthful glow.
Perhaps it is because I have a fairly good regime presently, I cannot say that the formula has made my skin look younger and tighter than it does otherwise. I have not been using it for very long, however, so it perhaps needs some additional data being collated.
What I can report on is that I enjoy using this after every shower. I find it keeps my skin soft and supple, and I much prefer using it as the first item to touch my skin, instead of my sun screen, which used to be my default. It feels quite smooth and soothing, and on the days when I don’t use it my skin feels a little bit tighter than it does otherwise.
The Genifique comes with a self-loading dropper, which delivers the exact amount of product that you need for your face. It took some time for me to understand the best way to use this dropper, if I am being completely honest. With regards to the product I find it is best to place the product on my skin still in sections, so that I am not racing to rub it in as quickly as I can but can actually take the time to massage the product into my skin and see the results that I get instead. I find that this way I also seem to need less of the product than I do when I disperse it as recommended by the product instructions.
The Genifique has a light, clean fragrance, which does not clash with any other product that I use on my face. The texture of my skin feels smoother and silkier than it did when I was merely using my moisturizing sunscreen, so I am quite excited about that.
Overall I am quite excited about this product and I look forward to seeing any additional differences that it will make in my skin.”
