It’s never too early to start taking care of your skin and keeping it from aging faster than it should. Signs of aging skin aren’t only limited to dull skin, dark spots and wrinkles, they can also be felt to the touch in the form of texture, firmness. and elasticity. Taking care of your skin (anti-aging wise) should start when you feel that your skin isn’t where it’s supposed to be at your age. In my case, my skin isn’t as elastic or glowy as it should be. I’m taking measures to get my skin restored to it’s original glowy, radiant self.
Lancome Advanced Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate brings back the Aura of Youth, which is the unique radiance that differs from person to person. Their original Genefique, being the first serum inspired by gene science, has garnered over 150 international awards and sold more than 15 million bottles worldwide. With it’s sleek design and glass bottle, it is known as The Little Black Bottle to most women in Asia.
Lancome Advanced Genefique is a reformulated version of the original Genefique, that is more effective in repairing the skin and activating the signs of youth. The Lancôme Advanced Genefique promises the first results in just 7 days of use, so I put it to the test!
Starting off with the packaging, it is in their signature Little Black Bottle that is sleek and elegant. Other than the change in formula, the Advanced Genefique also has a self-loading dropper that wasn’t present in the original Genefique. The self-loading dropper automatically picks up just the right amount of product when you twist the cap, and all you have to do is push down on the top to dispense the product. I love this feature because you get the perfect amount of product that is required for the whole face each time!
The product itself is a slightly milky liquid that is a little bit thicker than a normal serum. The Lancôme Advanced Genefique is the first step in all skincare routine, so I always start off with this right after cleansing my face, day and night. The serum spreads over the entire face very easily. Eventhough the consistency is slightly thicker, it still absorbs into the skin in a matter of seconds! After the product is absorbed, my skin is left feeling cooled, refreshed, and most importantly, not sticky (which is a problem I have with most serums)!
I’ve used this product every day and night for the past 7 days to see if there would actually be results. Like I said, I don’t have very visible signs of aging skin yet, but I want to improve the texture of my skin. I’ve noticed that my skin felt a lot smoother, especially when applying makeup by the 4th day of use. By the 7th day, there was a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin and it felt more bouncy and supple.
I feel that, in just 7 days, the serum has definitely given my skin the boost it needs. I’m still using the serum every day now, and my skin has never felt or looked better. There is a radiance to my skin, almost like a lit-from-within glow, and overall just makes my face light up and look healthy.
If your skin needs a little pick-me-up, the Lancôme Advanced Genefique is definitely the way to go if you’re looking to achieve glowy, bouncy skin. Lancôme claims that you can see results in only 7 days of use, and I agree! It won’t magically transform or anything (not in 7 days, it won’t!), but you can definitely tell that there is a difference.
I love everything about the Lancôme Advanced Genefique – from the packaging, to the product, to the results it gives. The only downside to this is probably the price point of this – it retails for RM381.60 (50ml) and RM514.10 (75ml), but if you ever want to splurge on a good anti-aging product, this is the one! With millions of bottle sold, I’m sure I’m not the only one that think so!
The Lancôme Advanced Genefique brings out the best in your skin – so you can be beautiful just by being yourself!
