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.
I got break out by this product. I was surprised though because I am not acne prone person at all.
So sad that It's few Lancome skincare products that I don't like :(
I bought this product on a whim after hearing my cousin rave about it. I bought the large bottle. Though it was pricey, I'd have to say I'll repurchase again (though I kind of want to try EL Advanced Night Repair..) The texture and feel of my skin has changed dramatically for the better! My skin literally feels like velvet to the point that I love touching it. It hasn't erased my brown spots or anything (I've been using it for 6 weeks and have just noticed they've gotten a bit lighter) but my skin definitely glows when I use this.
I'd recommend getting a gwp or a gift set if you want to try this out because it is quite pricey. But I do enjoy this product very much! My skin looks and feels wonderful! It hasn't been this way in years
EDIT // I changed my rating from 4 to 5 lippies because I after I stopped using it, I noticed the difference in my face, and it wasn't good! I bought it right away, and my skin is back to normal; as smooth and lovely as it was before.
it was seriously amazing... but 84 $ is too expensive for me, tried it once, loved it
I'm loving loving this. I was tempted to get this while watching a korean beauty show which they show results of 3 ladies (3 different age group, 20s, 30s, 40s) using only this to replace their daily skincare routine, yup this is all they used throughout 3 months. I was really amazed like the audience in the show that the changes was like WOW!
After reading a bit here & there and chanced upon a pack of sample. So decided to give it a try before committing to a full-sized one. I used this serum to replace my complete skincare routine except for targetted area (MB buffering lotion) & Eye cream.
It does the job of moisturizing my skin as i have combination skin so tend to have dry areas on the outer frame & oily T-zone. The serum was so easily absorbed into my skin, just a few strokes of massage its fully absorbed! My hubby commented that i dun have those thick moisturizer shine on my face on that particular day. My skin feel ultra relax without those heavy routine... my lazy self love it too as it was a breeze to forgo those 6-7 steps...
Next day result was good, my oily T-zone wasnt as oily as before. I have problem with my day makeup as my office environment is really dry so tend to peels or oily T-zone again... I only use the serum to replace full routine and yet skin did not show too much sign of dryness & of course less oily! HOORAY! so i hop on & purchased the full-sized just yesterday!!
The price is slightly on the higher end but if it can perform miracle as compare to less no of products... its actually long term savings...
I do not recommend this at all for anyone with remotely dry skin. This serum made my skin feel dry, tight and made my pores even more apparent. At first I couldn't quite figure out why this was the case, it wasn't until I looked up the ingredients did I find out that alcohol was highly prominent in this serum. Since I still have 3/4 of the bottle left, I think I'll give it another try in the summer when my skin sometimes gets a bit oilier. The packaging and light scent are very nice though.
I also received a sample of this product after purchasing some a Lancome foundation. I have to say I really like Genifique! I saw a difference in my skin, and I think I am only half way through the little bottle they gave me. My skin just feels smoother, more radiant, and tighter, especially in the mornings when I wake up. But this product is Very expensive... But it might be worth it : )
I received a sample of this as a GWP. It has been awhile since I have used a HE serum, but this product is amazing! I saw a dramatic difference in the tone and sheer radiance of my skin in 7 days. I can't explain it... it just looks more youthful and healthy. Texture has improved and my skin is so soft. Absorbs very quickly, packaging is nice with the dropper and fragrance is very light. The only problem I can find with this product is the hefty price tag it carries!!
OMG! I love this stuff! It's exspensive but worth the money! I have been using this for 3 weeks, and my skin is radiant as it was in my early 20's. I have a high stress job and home life. Which was leaving my skin dull just washed out looking. I decided to try it so it was a gwp. Anyhow to get to my point! I love it. This stuff works wonders on my skin. I decided to purchase the biggest bottle I could buy.
It doesn't leave my skin oily .
It sinks right in.
I use it right after I wash my face then apply my moisturizer
I will repurchase.
