Lancôme Advanced Génifique

Let’s admit it, ladies. Our skin isn’t as great as it used to be.  So when dear friend Mae Dichupa asked me to attend the relaunch of one of Lancôme‘s most-loved skin serums, I couldn’t help but be curious.

lancomeCatching up with Lia Cruz, Patty Laurel, Mae Dichupa, and Shawn Yao at the Lancôme Génifique event.

BlogLancomeAdvanced Génifique is a more powerful version of Lancôme’s popular Génifique skin serum. It promises to give you healthier looking skin with just a few weeks of use.

Women around the world have sworn that this wonder potion has helped them erase years of their face. It’s great for all skin types and can be used both day and night. It can also be combined with your current skin care routine to give your other products a boost.

This is what was noted in Lancôme’s clinical trials after 8 weeks of use on 34 women:

– Texture +57%
– Resiliency +49%
– Elasticity +50%
– Firmness +49%
– Sagginess +46%
– Fine lines +42%
– Wrinkles +46%
– Radiance +52%
– Clarity +47%
– Even skintone +42%

All you need to do is twist the cap and place a few drops on your fingers to warm up before gently placing on clean skin. It has a slightly floral/alcohol scent that quickly evaporates into nothing. The clear, watery gel sinks right in and doesn’t feel heavy.

I preferred to use it at night, where I would wake up the next morning to the silkiest, most rested looking skin even after just one use. Make sure to put some on your neck as well. If you’re feeling extravagant, give your hands some love. They’re often the first sign of aging.

Verdict: If you’re in the market for a serum to give your skin a little more help, I recommend this one. It’s free from bad for you things like parabens, sulfates, and pthalates. And filled with ingredients that will help your skin feel ready to conquer your 30s (or 40s) with renewed energy.

It’s not cheap, but products that often work have put a lot of time in research and quality ingredients. It’s always good to try a sample before committing to a product, so feel free to stop by Lancôme’s many counters around the country.
