Got a sample, after 2 applications, I broke out. I do have problems with rich products but I am glad I didn't have to buy a bottle to find that out.
This product works great on my skin. I use this as a base underneath Hope in a Jar. I believe it is meant to be used underneath your normal moisturizer to increase the effects of your moisturizer. I use it morning and night, and I have noticed that my skin a lot smoother and more softer.
Have many samples of this and I tried to like it but just not doing anything special for me...Don't see a difference or any improvments at all... Have been using it for well over a month every night and morning just not worth the money it is retailed for!!!!
I've never written a review before but I feel that I should write one to warn you about this product. I have always had a very good skin where I hardly ever break out and never break out from any skincare or makeup products EVER! However, I received a 7-day sample of the Genifique and I was only able to use it 3 times before my entire face started breaking out. I got tons of bumpy rash-like pimples and it's been 4-5 days already since I stopped using it and I cannot get rid of this break out.
This is horrifying because I never break out like this before and I've tried my fair share of skincare and nothing was ever this bad. If you want to try this product I would make sure to get the sample first. In fact, if you can stay away from it then please do. You don't want to break out like me because it's horrible and I'm feeling very bad about my skin right now. If you want to spend the money, I'd go with the Estee Lauder Advance night repair. It's a much better product.
this product really had made a huge differance to my skin. i started using it becuase my mum (54 years old) recommended it, as she has a very dry sensitive skin she said it made her skin so much smoother and much brighter. i suffer badly with acne and oily skin, so was slightly worried it would bring me out in spots..however after trying a sample it was amazing. 2 of my friends commented on my skin, and a person i hadnt seen in a while said how well i looked. not only did it reduce the appearance of my acne scaring and current acne, it brightened and smoothed. its amazing and well worth the money and actually worked out cheaper than the no. 7 protect and perfect as it lasts so long. anyone looking for something to give u great skin this really does it. thankyou lancome!
I first tried this serum when I got a sample in a GWP. I liked it enough to buy the full size, which I've been using daily for the last year. In the beginning, I saw a difference - especially around my eyes. But over time, I haven't seen any additional improvement. It glides on really nice and probably provides some extra moisture under my regular moisturizer (maybe it works primarily as a line filler?), but in the end I just don't think it's worth the big bucks. If you're looking for a miracle, this isn't it.
Combo skin, some acne scarring, irish/scandanavian
This is SUPER expensive, but lucky me got two samples of it in a Sephora order.
I used it every night for about 5 weeks before my uber samples ran out. It moisturized great, and I did not have any negative reaction to this product, even though I have picky skin. I did some improvement to my skin tone, including less red, and about a 5% lightening of my scars. I don't know how well it prevents or removes wrinkles/lines, since I don't have many yet, but with the changes my skin was making, if I had $90 to drop for this product I sure would!
breakout central! skin looked aweful after a few uses. i have dry/combo skin and will not use this ever again!
I had a generous sample of this product, however I did not notice any improvement of my skin and I also experienced break out while I used it. I do not think it improves skin texture and it is also more suitable for dry skin types.
I got the seven day sample from Carson's. I have been wanting to try this to see if it would make my skin look better. I have sensitive acne prone (hormonal) and some wrinkles, but not too bad. I usually use drugstore products but wanted to try a high end product to see if the difference would be much better. I used in the morning under my mositurizer for two days in a row. This product made my skin look much worse! I woke up the third day and to my dismay my wrinkles and pores looked so magnified, much worse than they usually do. I did not use it today. Maybe this product just isn't for my type of skin, I don't know.
