If you read my blog you know that I am obsessed with anti-aging skin care stuff.
I have been using this since six month ago. I lost my first bottle after four month use, this is my second bottle. Skin care stuff is really hard to review because everybody's skin type is different. Even you have dry skin like me, I still think there are differences between every kind of dry skin.
The reason I got this is because I wanted to try the Lancome GÉNIFIQUE Youth Activating Concentrate, but it is a little bit pricy for me. I read some Chinese girls blog, they analysed the ingredient, the only difference between these two is L'oreal one uses the cheap "fragrance” (you know... the stuff that makes it smell good, since I don't think which might be the proper word , I am just gonna call it "fragrance"), and the Lancome one uses the more expensive "fragrance". So basically, the only difference is L'oreal one smells cheaper than the Lancome one. I have several travel size Lancome GÉNIFIQUE Youth Activating Concentrates. Compare these two, L'oreal one smells stronger, Lancome one smells lighter.
Well, I have super dry skin in spring, winter, and fall. I have combination skin during summer. This serum is my first serum I ever used. I know I don't need anti-aging skin care, but this one is good for me because it moisturizes my skin very well. I use it two time a day (Two pumps each time). One for night before I go to bed, one for morning before I put my day- moisturizer on.
My skin doesn't have any change, but I quitted using it about one month. You know for skin care you have to keep using it, or you won't see any changes. The another good usage which I learned from the new Lancome makeover for this fall, is mix the serum with foundation to give your face a smoother look. They use the Lancome GÉNIFIQUE Youth Activating Concentrate mix with TEINT MIRACLELit-From-Within Makeup. I don't have either one, so I just use this serum mix with some other foundations. I have to say... they turned out pretty good. Normally I can't use a setting powder to set my foundation because that would make my makeup so cakey, but after I mixed this serum into my foundation, my face doesn't look cakey after I apply setting powder.
It is really liquidy!
Rub it into my skin. You can see a sheen on my arm, but after about 1 minute you won't see anything any more.
Lancome GÉNIFIQUE Youth Activating Concentrate. Since they look totally the same, I didn't "swatch" this on my skin.
I used Lancome GÉNIFIQUE Youth Activating Concentrate as serum, and L'Oreal skin Expertise Youth Code Serum Intense Daily Treatment as the mixing with Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place Makeup SPF10 and Nars Pro-Prime Multi-Protect Primer
Thanks For Looking!
