Very nice. Very nice indeed

I have been using this twice a day for over a year now combined with the Visionnaire. They are a lovely combination and do make my skin lovely and smooth and soft. The packaging is just gorgeous though the dropper is kind of gimmicky. It is very thin, about the consistency of oil and has a moderately strong fragrance - the Lancome fragrance. Performance wise it is always hard to measure aging creams. I am 30 now so all my lines are fairly fine and new. As I have now been using good quality anti-aging products since I started showing signs of aging I cannot speak for any real improvements. I can say though that since using the Genifique and Visionnaire my skin feels so soft and outside the centre of my cheeks and nose where I have large pores and redness, the look of my skin is flawless. I put this down to these products doing their job. I believe this is the 'magic' product in the pairing so I will be re-purchasing the Genifique but probably not the Visionnaire.

Tips

I use a small dropper full of the Genifique first careful to work it all the way down my neck. I then apply the Visionnaire before it has entirely absorbed.

Ideal for

All but the most incredibly sensitive could use and benefit from the use of this product.

My holy grail

I finished a bottle of the old design and will definitely repurchase a new bottle.
Packaging: nice and classic. The new design dispenser is more user friendly as it dispense the right amount. But it always leak when I bring it for travel even though I tighten it properly, this happened to me for the old design.
Scent: it's a pleasant scent to me
Texture: runny clear liquid, not oily at all, very easily absorb into the skin.
Result: not sure does it make your face soft and supple but my face looks smoother. It allows your skin to better absorb the products that you apply after this. If I skip this step, the serums and lotion that I lather on my face seems to linger on my face longer rather than absorb into it immediately. But if I use this as my "pre-serum", the products that I lather on my face seems to absorb much faster.

Tips

I tend to use it after toner. I think it's better to use this with other Lancome products to achieve a better result

Good Skin Day in a bottle

I have a "love-meh" relationship with this product.
Having used the original Genifique when it first came out into the market over 2 years ago, I was initially in love with the product. It revitalised my skin after several days of use, hydrating it immediately and plumping up the skin so that fine lines are not visible. It also gives it clarity and just made it looked like I had well rested clear skin.

But after using the Genifique serum for 2 weeks, the wonderful effects that I was initially getting wasn't there anymore. It was still giving my soft supple skin, but the radiance and clarity wouldn't be forthcoming anymore. I would give the product a rest for 2 weeks before rotating it back into my skincare routine.

So when I heard of the new Genifique concentrate, I thought I would try it again and see if the higher concentration of the active ingredient would give me constant good skin day instead of only for 2 weeks.

The new product is packaged in the same original glass bottle with a dropper dispenser to dispensing precise amount of the milky white liquid onto skin. It is incredibly emollient and spreads very well on skin so that a droplet can cover half a face if you need to make it last. This serum is to be used before all other skincare product and I am happy to report that it does not interfere with any other products and doesn't cause any pilling/balling at all.

After using this new Genifique concentrate, I still find that my skin adjust to it and doesn't give me that radiant rested face after about 2 weeks of use. The best results seem to be achieved in the first 2 weeks only where my skin is radiant, supple and youthful. The 20% increased concentration didn't seem to make a big impact for my skin although when it works, it is a fantastic product.

I'm on the fence with this serum and am not sure if I'd buy it again after I finish this bottle. If only my skin can consistently achieve radiance with it.

Glosscars 2014 Vote - More Radiant & Healthy Skin

This is a high quality product. It comes beautifully packaged in a luxurious looking dark blue glass bottle with a silver lid that has a droplet dispenser. One pump on the lid extracts the right amount of the product up into the dropper and is enough for one application. This provides a consistent amount for each use, reducing wastage, and makes it very easy to use. It has a subtle and pleasant smell.

This serum should be applied after cleansing and before moisturising. Upon application it makes my skin feel soothed and nourished and it is absorbed quickly into my skin. After continued use I have noticed that the overall condition of my skin has improved noticeably and my skin looks more youthful, healthy and radiant.

This is a quality product and is in the luxe price range, I feel that this product is a good investment in your skin and that the results justify the price. I would happily recommend it to others.

I'm addicted to facial serums and Lancôme's Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate is a serum that stands above many others.
The packaging: a stunning glass bottle, coloured a black to smoky grey...very luxe. It has a dropper for dispensing the serum, which is perfect in my mind...I love that the serum inside can stay fresh and germ-free and the dropper allows for precise dispensary.
This serum has quite a runny consistency compared to most, it spreads super-easy over my skin and absorbs almost on contact. It has a lovely scent - not too strong. It prepares my skin for the next step - face oil.
I have only used this because I was lucky enough to receive a number of deluxe samples...I would dearly love to buy a full size as I think it's worth it.

Glosscars 2014 Fabulous In A Bottle

Definitely thought this was a 'HERO' product and was worthy of a Glosscars nomination so have resubmitted my review.

Having been given the opportunity to trial this fabulous product from Lancome, I was quite excited when it turned up in the mail.

The packaging itself is housed in a black box with gold and white writing with Lancomes signature rose which to me looked quite classy. The product is housed in a glass bottle with a gold self measuring dropper with a pump on top that you press once to deliver one exact dose of the concentrate.

Being a Lancome user from way back I couldn't wait to try this serum out to see if their was any improvement on the original. From the first moment I used this I was in love, as it made my skin so soft and supple and absorbed instantly without leaving any greasy residue you can sometimes have with other serums.

It had quite a pleasent smell that was neither overpowering or off putting which made this concentrate a pleasure to use. I trialled this for approx one month twice a day and can honestly say after about a week of continued use I did see a difference in the fine lines around my eyes and mouth area and the tone and texture of my skin was also changing for the better.

After the second week I was sold on this new version and day after day the difference in my skin was clear everytime I looked in the mirror. After the third and fourth week I was quite impressed and will definitely be keeping this in my regime along with my other Lancome products. I would defintely say the tone, texture and overall look of my skin had improved dramatically and I must say Lancome has come up with a clear winner with this new concentrate.

The one thing I did love about this serum other than the way it made my skin look and feel was the dropper that delivered the exact amount of the product so their was no waste and even though this was only 20mls I still have well over half a bottle left with makes this concentrate also great value for money as you only need the smallest amount.

Overall I would definitely recommend this to anyone over the age of 30 who is wanting to soften fines lines and wrinkles as well as wanting to improve the overall tone and texture of their skin.

If I could give this product a 10 out of 10 rating I would as it's that good at making you look your very best. Well done Lancome and I look forward to adding this to my daily regime to keep my skin looking it's very best.

Tips

All skin types, even sensitive, as well as those that are wanting to regain their youthful glow.

Anyone who has noticed the first signs of aging and those that want to reverse fine lines and wrinkles around the eye, mouth and nose area.

Ideal for

Apply to neck and chest area for visibly smoother skin.

One press of the dropper is ample to cover your entire face and neck.

My skin is thanking me over and over again for introducing it to this magical serum! There is a visible difference to the overall health of my skin and on the wrong side of 30 I need all the help I can get!

Love the look of the bottle in gorgeous black and silver with the trademark silver Lancome rose. Its beautiful to look at on my dresser!
The cap has the dropper attached to it and you only need a couple of drops to cover the whole face.
I noticed that it really helped minimize pores on the tip of my nose. It absorbs very quickly into the skin and dries quickly so you dont need to wait for it to sink in when your in a hurry.
My skin feels so much smoother, tauter and softer too. Have had no problem applying my moisturizer and makeup over it.
Have experienced no breakouts or adverse skin reactions.
Has a pleasant light fragrance which disappears within a few minutes of application. It feels a tad sticky soon after applying but absorbs completely and leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft.
I have noticed my skin looks much younger and glows. Fine lines seem reduced and the overall tone of the skin has improved. The only negative is the high price range. Though you do need so little at a time that the bottle will last for quite a while!
Have recieved quite a few compliments even when I was makeup free so it does make a visible difference!

Being a fan of skincare, serums and Lancome, I was particularly excited about this Lancome Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate. Housed in an ombre effect black glass bottle with a convenient silver dropper applicator, this serum looks classy and luxurious. Indeed it is one of the more pricey serums on the market, but one that is certainly worth it in my opinion. If you’re in your mid twenties+ and are concerned about fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and uneven skin tone and want a product that will help refine and tone your skin, this may be the serum for you.

This lightweight, non-greasy and fast absorbing gel serum is suitable for all skin types. Whilst it is lightly fragranced, it’s subtle without being overpowering so as to not agitate those with sensitive noses/skin. Incorporating this product into your daily skincare routine cannot be any easier. After cleansing and toning, you only need to dispense a few droplets of this serum and apply onto the face and neck and follow through with your usual moisteriser. The serum instantly absorbs into the skin without leaving any sticky residue, so that you can apply your usual moisteriser without delay. I love the lightweight formula as I can layer on heavier/richer moisterisers without it leaving my face feeling sticky/greasy.

Skin feels hydrated, softer and looks refreshed and brighter after each application. With daily use, this serum really helped improve the texture of my skin. My forehead and laugh lines have diminished, the pores near my cheeks appear smaller, my skin feels softer and overall looks smoother. I love this serum so much that I have gone through several bottles over the years since its release. I have yet to experience any negative reaction or breakouts. This is definitely a must have anti-aging product that every woman should try.

Ideal for

All skin types
25 years + / mature skin
Those concerned with fine lines, wrinkles, skin refinement

Quite nice.

This light, fresh scented serum is really easily absorbed in to the skin, it feels refreshing and leaves the skin perfectly prepared for the rest of your beauty regime.

I use this serum in the morning after washing my face and toning but before moisturising.

I feel like I have not seen any obvious results with this serum and I suspect that I had some slight purging after initial use as my skin showed some signs of a possible breakout which never reached a peak and just disappeared over the space of about a week leaving no trace of any problems whatsoever (I have also been using Visionnaire in conjunction with this product so I can not pin point exactly which product caused this).

I'm not sure that the product is really worth it for me but I do like it and will continue to use it.
