Lancome Genifique Review12:44 PM
Today is officially the 7th day that Lancome Genifique is part of my skin care routine and as promised I am publishing my review about the product.
I heard about this product before it launched here in Manila and I was excited about it but my excitement fizzled when I learned how much it was. It was sold at $78 in the US but it's sold at around $115 ($1=P45.80) here. Right there and then I decided the product is not for me and I better find some alternatives that I could afford. I tried some other famous brands, both local and imported, but I never got the results I wanted.
Imagine my excitement when I opened the Lancome package that was sent to me! Lancome was generous enough to throw in a bottle (30 ml) of Genifique. Thank you so much again Kerry. I immediately used the product the day I received it. It was L-O-V-E at first use.
What the Lancome Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate is supposed to do is boost the activity of our genes so skin looks and feels younger. The 2 biotech active ingredients are Bio-Lysat – stimulates gene’s expression of the identified youth protein; and Phytosphingosine – re-establishes protein synthesis and promotes the development of higher quality, more beautiful skin. The serum comes in a heavy smoked black glass bottle. I love the sound when the dropper touches the bottle, it's like a wee bell sounding off, like two crystals grazing each other. All you need is 2-3 drops in the morning and evening and the opaque serum is dispensed via a dropper in the cap so its quite easy to control (ingenious idea). You should use it right after cleansing and toning and before all other serums or moisturizers. Oh yes, you need not throw the other beauty stuff you use because you can still use them on top of Genefique.
My skin feels so soft right now and I had to exercise a lot of self-control to stop myself from touching my face. I never developed any adverse reaction to the product, so no new breakout for me. I, however, don't think my skin is lit from within except when I am inside my bathroom (I guess the lighting is perfect there) and yes it is radiant compared to the pre-Genifique time but not breathtaking yet. I could attest though that my skin really feels cushiony soft and velvety to the touch. It's as if I just had facial, I couldn't feel the rough patches anymore (seriously). I also did not experience any peeling or redness. At this point, skin tone is not yet even but I feel and observe with continued use, Genifique will be able to live up to its promise.
Genifique and I just started our love affair and it's going to be for keeps. I am so looking forward to seeing more positive changes to my skin and that's almost a conclusion for me right now.
The best thing about using this product is that I don't feel the urge to constantly use make-up anymore.
Will I repurchase?
Yes! I will definitely buy another bottle when I use this up. This 30ml (1oz) bottle if used as advised can last up to 90 days.
Where to purchase and how much?
1. Online : $78.00

NOTE: This is not a paid post. I was just really ecstatic to see quick results that I decided to share my review of the product. I will be posting another review after I use this for about a month or two.
