Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate Review

28.8.15


Lancôme Advanced Genifique

In the many years that we have come to know Lancôme, the brand has never failed to surprise. They have come out with some well formulated scrubs, great foundations,outstanding mascaras, cleansers and lipsticks and this time round, have returned with a newly updated version of their popular water-based serum; the Lancôme Genifique.


Dropper Applicator


This Advanced version of the Lancôme Genifique is said to reactivate the 10 key signs of youth with its anti-aging properties, so we put it to the test; using it consistently during the day and night. After a week of usage, we took note of the improvement for the skin did look a little smoother than before but it was only after two weeks did the properties of the serum really kick in.

Results (1st and 2nd week) on dry skin:

1st week after usage (7 days): Slightly smoother skin
2nd week after usage (14 days): Rejuvenated, hydrated and luminous skin.

Now with all the benefits that the Lancôme Advanced Genifique has to offer, there were still some concerns that we had with this little bottle of youth. For as much as we had enjoyed using it, the amount of alcohol that was in the serum's latest formula (pro-aging) is still a big no no, especially to those who are prone to acne and sensitive skin. Breakouts, redness and inflammation could occur, so with regards to this, we would honestly say to be cautious.


The consistancy

Anyway, do not be too put off yet. For those who are looking to improve their skin condition to a more luminous and even glow, this product is a good investment in the long run. Keep in mind, this applies mostly to those with combination skin with no severe problems to acne. There are decent benefits such as Vitamin C (antioxidants), Sodium hyaluronate (skin repair) so in terms of giving your skin the ideal measures that it needs, the serum does deliver.


However, the part where draws a little bit of a jolt is its price; which comes up to a jarring amount of RM381.60 for 50ML and RM514.10 for a 75ML bottle; all inclusive of GST. Nonetheless, its quality above quantity so of course what you pay for is what you get that is best for your skin.

Pros: Sleek packaging, lightweight, smooth and offers decent benefits to the skin

Cons: Price and slight risk skin irritation (alcohol)

Smoother and radiant skin after two weeks

I honestly would say that I would need to finish using the bottle within three months or so to see the product's fullest potential as I am still on the fence on whether I would make a repurchase. However if you would like to know more details, do check out the the Lancôme Advanced Genifique on Lancôme's Official Website and Facebook Page to get a deeper insight on the product and its formulation.

  18. If you use it consistently you will see the results, if the alcohol content that irritates you then you might need to think twice to continue using it or not.
