Cleansers -Lancome -Huile Douceur Remove All Deep Cleansing Oil

I didn't like this cleansing oil. It didn't take off my eye makeup that readily and it didn't break up well with water. It also left quite a film that my regular cleanser struggled to cut through. I don't usually have this problem because my regular cleanser usually gets everything left off. Also the fragrance lingered and the pump seemed too short so I had to lift the bottle to pump the oil in my hand, something I don't have to do with my Clinique cleansing oil. For the price I was expecting something wow.


Treatments (Eye) -Lancome -Progres Contour Des Yeux Eye Cream

The Progres eye cream is so very rich so that I had to learn how much to apply, and with the jar packaging it is easy to over do. It did help with my fine lines and plumped my eye area BUT there is slight fragrance and it is so occlusive. It did nothing for my eye bags or for my dark circles but it's a dream to find a product that will address all of my issues. My big problem with this eye cream is that it causes milia for me and I just cannot put up with an eye cream that causes milia.

Treatments (Face) -Lancome -Absolue Night Premium Bx

This dense and compact cream has some very good actives that can revitalize the skin. The formula is rich, replenishing yet absorbs quickly leaving a perfectly natural finish that has lasting hydration without being sticky or leave a perceptible film on the skin.

The formula itself is nothing out of the ordinary, however, its value lays in its simplicity. It uses some thickeners and butters/waxes to achieve the rigidity of the emulsion and precisely this will leave a cushiony yet dry feel on the skin.

The formula is loaded with the humectant Glycerin that will provide very long lasting hydration. It is a sticky and definitely not elegant substance, however a formula as this moisturizer is, allows to overcome this flow providing an excellent finish yet lasting hydration.

The only drawback is the heavy fragrance that could have been a lighter and more pleasant one, in my opinion.

I been using this Night Gel-in-oil cream for few months. It is a very gentle yet fragrant night skincare. (You can use it during day time if you don't mind the lack of SPF and oil component). I've gone through 2/3 of the jar, so far so good! Not a miracle but it does pamper my 38y/o almost 39y/o skin in winter. I've read some reviews here and decide to join for my two cent.

This product DOES contain noticeable anti-oxidant such as "Tocopherol!" (Vitamin E), and right on the 3rd ingredient list..."GLYCINE SOJA OIL" is another good source of Vitamin E! Surely it contain denatured alcohol in it's 6th ingredient list, but as long it's not up in the first-third ingredient list, it is still acceptable and it work as a solvent agent.

Another good friendly ingredient present in higher amount in this product is "RIBES NIGRUM OIL" (Black Currant Seed Oil). In cosmetics black currant seed oil is used for treating dry, inflammatory, mature and hyper-sensitive skin as well as dirty and acne-prone skin.

One more noticeable oil is ROSA CANINA FRUIT OIL (Rose Hip oil), this oil work as antioxidants and good emollients. Although Lancome only add very tiny amount because this is listed in very bottom of the list.

Will I repurchase this product once I run out (during winter time)? Maybe! The only draw back is the asking price. But I must reiterate in many of my reviews. If you're buying department store, prestige brand or dermatologist brand, every cosmetic company mark up their product. I like the fact this product contain lots of helpful "oil", if you want something different then the standard emollient rich cream for dry skin in winter, give this product a chance! (If you have the budget for it!)

Note: From my personal experiences, don't try products from magazine or product come from a plan-flat. Because they might not been properly stored, always checked the expire code. Even from cosmetic counter, I've received expired or almost expired product samples.

Moisturizers -Lancome -Rénergie Multi-Lift Ultra Full Spectrum Anti-Aging Fluid

This is one of Lancome's new product from the renergie line. I've been using this day time lotion since 2017 Christmas. I like the overall performance on my skin. It's no miracle product, but as long I keep my expectation realistic, this product is fair enough, and judging from the ingredients / package, this is one of Lancome's better day time anti-oxidant option with SPF25.

Pros:
- Don't let the name deceived you. It is still pretty creamy, definitely not Fluid. But it blend in your skin very easily and absorb quickly! So for normal to slightly dry skin, this work wonder! (As long you wear a good moisturizing toner, serum prior this product!)
- When you look at the ingredients, it contain lots of SPF related components. (octocrylene, homosalate)
- There are vitamin A, C and E. (RETINYL PALMITATE *in a very bottom of the ingredient list though*, TOCOPHEROL ● ASCORBYL GLUCOSIDE)
- There is AHA (GLYCOLIC ACID!). Although not knowing the %, but AHA help with smoother skin, also help with fading acne scaring.
- The package is very stable in a glass bottle, no product deterioration.
- Did not irritated my acne prone skin

Cons:
- Okay this is very annoying... when I first purchase this product, I did my homework, so I know it contain SPF. However, in the actual cosmetic counter, Lancome Canada place a purple sticker in attempt to "hide" the SPF25!! Why?? This is very dishonest, which I'm guessing because due to the high asking price (125$CAD), Lancome didn't want to discourage night time usage. I'm not sure if this happened in the global or perhaps just in Toronto Canada.
- The asking price for SPF day time lotion is still on a very high-end side. Of course we all know we're paying for prestige brand.
- I personally love the scent, but for very sensitive skin this is slightly scented!

I think I will be likely to repurchase this once I ran out of it... (I got it as a gift), but due to the AHA, I try not to wear this on my eyelid area, which can be a bit annoying when I want SPF protection on the eye area. The bottle package is luxuriously pretty but it is glass bottle... so not very travel friendly! i would recommend this day lotion if you have the budget for it.

Amazing mascara! It never clumps except for small chunks every so often (but they are easy to brush out) and is super defining. It does not add any volume, however. I have the waterproof and it does not smudge in any condition. I've cried, skiied, and taken a shower (super steamy and rinsed my face with no soap) and it did not run!

Very average - gives length and defintion - does not hold the curl + smudges badly.
Too expensive for a 'supposed' hight end mascara.

I got this in a set with the genefique serum, it was a very good deal and I was excited to try it out. Upon using it for 2 weeks, my skin looked brighter plumper more radiant healthier. It was the best i had seen my skin in a while.
BUT- slows i noticed small pimples forming, very small ones dot dot dot across my foehead in my cheeeks/ AND mind you i am basically acne free prior to this duo. I thought, i would continue using it since it made my skin look so good, But Nopeee.
my skin kept breaking out- and i knew i had to return it. The two in a set cost alot!, so wasnt worth it obv if it breaks me out. I should also mention the frangrance in this is very strong.,

I knew it was this cream and not the genefique serum causing the breakout, i just knew, THE frangrance in it was too strong and tehrefore too many chemicals prolly causing the break out.

sigh, its been over a month and im still breaking out and have not been able to get back to normal skin like before even through i stoped using this and started a difff skincare line, its sooo weired how badly this wrecked my faceee

REQUEST A SAMPLE FIRST TO TEST FOR AN ALLERGIC REACTION. I also want to chime in with an allergic reaction. I've received a few of these travel sized versions from Macy's whenever I boy my Lancome products, as I always buy them from Macy's when they're having a gift with purchase special offer. I'm not suffering from any wrinkles yet which is what this is actually intended for, but because it's the most expensive moisturizer option from which to choose as your free bonus, I always get this one. I finally decided to actually use them, so I did. Please note the moisturizer was not expired when I used it. I washed and applied it and felt my skin become warm, but slight redness and warmth is normal for me so I ignored it. Ironically today I was en route to my dermatologist's office for my monthly visit. Well, as soon as I walked in the PA freaked out saying that I was bright red. She was scared! I didn't feel weird, so I said it just must be the new moisturizer...that is, until I went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror. OMG, I was more red than a stop sign! My husband is a doctor so I immediately texted him asking what I could or should do. "Take a 25 mg Benedryl," he responded. So, I ran to Rite Aid and bought a box of it. Within minutes my ears went from hot pink purpley-red to almost normal, and my redness on my face has somewhat subsided. The dermatologist had handed me some samples of cream to wear to calm down the redness which I also applied. I would definitely request a sample of this before buying it because you want to ensure you do not end up like me.

Cleansers -Lancome -Galatéis Douceur

Excellent milky make-up remover that is easy to use and easy to remove with water or just wiping it off.
It might not remove make-up perfectly and therefore it is wise to use another product in conjunction with this. However, it is a must in cold winter weather since it will leave a thin hydrating layer on the skin even if removed with water.

It is a classic formula based on mineral oil and Isopropyl Myristate sprinkled with pineapple and papaya extracts. This latter has no contribution to the formula or the effect of it. It is purely for label-claim purposes. That means that companies can charge you more.
Actually the formula is identical to Vichy 3-in-1 Cleanser where L’Oreal has reused this winning mix of ingredients without the actives and added a less flattering fragrance to.

What I like about this product is that it is mild, leaves the skin hydrated, although it could be a bit richer and leave a more perceptive layer of hydration. It is fragranced but the fragrance will not linger and is undetectable after removal with water.
It is a very good product for combination skin and for dryer skin types in warmer/more humid weather.

Ingredients: Aqua / Water, Paraffinum Liquidum / Mineral Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Propanediol, Ci 777 / Ultramarines, Ananas Sativus Fruit Extract / Pineapple Fruit Extract, Sodium Hydroxide, Hydroxycitronellal, Peg-32, Peg-6 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Eugenol, Salicylic Acid, Silica, Linalool, Benzyl Alcohol, Cinnamyl Alcohol, Papain, Carbomer, Geraniol, Disodium Edta, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Parfum / Fragrance

Liquid -Lancome -Teint Idole Ultra Liquid 24h Longwear SPF 15 Foundation

I was looking for something similar to doublewear but not as heavy. Longwear is really important to me and I don’t like too drying as I’m dry combo in winter. (Ice since found the perfect way to wear doublewear to make it perfect).
This is so unbearably scented. So perfumy and floral. It’s so unnecessary. It’s irritating and makes me itch. I can smell it on my face an hour later.
It has good coverage and lasts 10+ hours. It’s a little flat matte for me. Given I’m looking for medium full long lasting and it ticks that box I’ve given it three stars but OMG the smell!!

Unfortunately, this product was a huge disappointment.
I was expecting a gelled mask rather like the Life Plankton Mask from Biotherm, another L’Oreal owned brand, just like Lancome.
However, his product is a very thin and runny gel, more like a serum than a gel and the packaging should have been a pump rather a jar. (Or preferably, a thicker gel in the same very pretty jar.)

Unfortunately, it does not hydrate the skin even when applied in very large quantities.

I believe that L’Oreal has produced far better products than this. This is truly a poor formula. Even the colour should have been more refined, not to mention that a synthetic fragrance has nothing to do in a product from a luxury brand.
Although, I can understand the choice of the synthetic fragrance for a product designed for sensitive skin. (Allergic reactions are less likely to synthetic/man-made ingredients.) I believe, that opting for a fragrance-free version would have been a far better choice than the bubble-gum sweetness they have ended up with.

Despite some excellent humectants and a good concentration of Vitamin B3 (estimated 1-3% concentration) in the formula, one can surely find far better products that are cheaper too.

Ingredients: Aqua / Water, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol Denat., Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Peg-8, Peg/Ppg/Polybutylene Glycol-8/5/3 Glycerin, Hydroxyethylpiperazine Ethane Sulfonic Acid, Ci 14700 / Red 4, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Theobroma Cacao Extract / Cocoa Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Extract / Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Ammonium Polyacryldimethyltauramide / Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate, Dimethiconol, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Caprylyl Glycol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Carbomer, Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract, Rosa Gallica Extract / Rosa Gallica Flower Extract, Tetrasodium Edta, Alteromonas Ferment Extract, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Parfum / Fragrance

The scent is nice but strong to my nose. It does dissipate quickly too. I like the texture and how soft it makes my skin feel. I don't notice too much difference in my neck area but on my chest it softens some of the fine lines I'm getting from years of sun exposure. It also doesn't break me out. Price is steep, but overall I enjoy using this. The added sunscreen is a nice perk.

The color choices are OK but the plastic packaging is cheap: Gold color lettering has quickly worn off and the thin top has a crack. Terrible given the price. I dislike holding it in my hands now, and there's plenty of product left to use up.

Nothing sends me about this stick foundation. Accentuates pores and fine lines. But the worst part is the cheap plastic packaging with worn-off gold lettering. Yuck. I explained to Lancome customer service, but they didn't care to replace my purchase.
