Softer Skin for sure!

Been using this of a morning and night for about 2 weeks so far. Definitely feels and looks like my skin is softer already. The serum is a very thin and slightly oily texture with a pleasant light fragrance. 2 to 3 drops cover the entire face and it absorbs very quickly with no residue and skin feels instantly softer. So far havent noticed much difference in fine line reductions. I am however only 27 and dont actually have many lines to reduce the appearance of. I am very happy with this product and am considering buying the full size when my 7ml runs out.

Ideal for

All skin types

Surprisingly good

I have to say I do not consider Lancome skincare great. In my opinion this just average skincare for big money that has to pay advertising budget off. I like Lancome makeup, but back to the topic.... I was surprised, and in a nice way with this Advanced Genifique. I only had a 7ml sample but it lasted me ages, seriously months. I used it two to three times a week at night or in the afternoon after my post workout shower. The bottle is cute, I would even say pretty sophisticated as the black colour and white letters look quite posh. I love the dropper as in this way we do not waste too much product and a drop or two is enough to cover the entire face. The formula of the serum is on the runnier side, very light and pleasant. It absorbs very quickly into the skin leaving it hydrated and very soft. I really can't smell any distinctive fragrance. I liked this serum as it did not break me out, it made my skin feel moisturised and smooth. I also loved mixing the serum with a drop of tamanu oil for some extra benefits. In the morning my face was radiant and plump. I believe this is one of the best Lancome skincare products.

Tips

Treat is as a serum, I believe a hydrating cream is essential on top of it.

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!
