Review : Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate

Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate is a powerful anti-aging serum from Lancome and few months back (back in March/April 2013), they launched THE upgraded version - Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate. 

And finally, I tried and almost finishing the bottle of it after 3 months (I used it everyday for the 1st month and then rotate it with other serums)



What it is formulated to do:
Inspired by cutting-edge science, Lancôme introduces Advanced Génifique—a serum so powerful it creates more radiant and smoother skin that you can see and feel. This innovative formula featuring Génifique’s powerful complex with added biotechnology-derived ingredient is incredible to the touch, and acts on 10 key signs of youth including texture, resiliency, elasticity, firmness, sagginess, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, clarity, and skintone. Complete with an exclusive self-loading dropper that gives you the perfect dose of serum for each application, skin will feel refreshed, renewed, and healthy.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates 


The bottle itself look and feel so sleek~

I would prefer a pump bottle(tube) but the advanced self-loading dropper also good~ 


Ingredients list
Water, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Dimethicone, Hydroxyethylpiperazine Ethane Sulfonic Acid, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Adenosine, Faex Extract/Yeast Extract/Extrait De Levure, Peg-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Salicyloyl Phytosphingosine, Ammonium Polyacryldimethyltauramide/Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate, Limonene, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Disodium Edta, Octyldodecanol, Citronellol, Fragrance. 

The serum is light, moist and colorless


The bottle is translucent at the bottem to let you know that your serum is running low~

  • The serum has a slightly slimy consistency
  • feel light on the skin
  • Absorbed nicely
  • The serum feel nice on the skin
  • Not sticky nor oily
  • Doesn't cause any skin irritation 
  • no break-out (on my face) 
At first, I didn't feel anything special while I use the serum for the first week, I just feel that it doesn't helps in the moisturizing part. Skin doesn't feel dry and tight easily.

After the first week, skin start to feel really smooth and supple - but I do not see any visible improvement of skin texture nor complexion.

Maybe because I do not have much wrinkles nor fine lines (I means very visible type) - overall, I do enjoy using the serum for the additional hydrating factor and the smoothness.

My face does look quite radiance but the uneven complexion - I still need foundation for it! (lolx.. I already resigned to fate that my skin can only improve "this" much)
