Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate Review

19th September 2014

I tried my first Lancôme skincare products last year thanks to one of their beautiful gift sets. The gift set I received had four of their skincare products inside; one of which was a tiny sample of their Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate £59*, however as the bottle was so small, I wasn’t able to put it through its paces so I was super happy to get my hands on the full size. The Génifique Serum is Lancome’s bestselling serum for younger looking and radiant skin, and is said to target 10 signs of youthful looking skin; reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the appearance of radiance, clarity, firmness, evenness in skintone and texture.

With serums, I often find that they’re mostly targeted at ageing skin and that there isn’t really anything for those of us in our twenties, however the Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate is suitable for all skin types, ethnicities and ages as it targets 10 different skin concerns so it’s perfect for my skin. I really wish more skincare brands would follow suit, as this is such a genius idea. Lancome claim that results will be visible within seven days of use, which is a pretty bold claim…

The packaging of the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate £59 is absolutely stunning.. in a gorgeous black and white glass bottle with a silver chrome lid with the Lancôme rose embossed onto the top, containing a pipette which is self loading as you unscrew the lid. To release the serum, you simply press the button on the top.. the packaging is just so incredibly luxurious. 

The serum has an amazingly silky texture, which leaves the skin feeling like satin and a perfect base for makeup.  I like to release half a pipette of serum onto the back of my hand, and then use my fingertips to massage it into my skin. I’ve even noticed that the skin on the back of my hand has become so silky soft, and a recent scar has faded dramatically in only seven days of use.

Not only has the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate improved the skin on the back of my hand, it’s also worked its magic on my face too. Firstly I’ve noticed a considerable improvement to my acne scarring along my jawline and chin, with the scarring looking a lot less noticeable; like the cut/scar on my hand. I’ve also noticed that my skin has become much more plump.. especially in my cheeks, and around my eyes where the skin is usually quite dry and dull. The skintone on my cheeks is a little uneven with redness, and I really do think the redness has been reduced and evened out.

I really do love and appreciate that Lancôme have created a skincare product which is suitable for all ages, skin types and ethnicities, as it treats 10 skin concerns it will work for everyone in one some form. If I had wrinkles or fine lines, I’m adamant that this serum would improve them from the results I’ve seen and I’m definitely purchasing this for my Mum for Christmas as I know she’s going to love it as much as I do.. I really am very impressed, and I can’t wait to see how else it improves my skin with prolonged use.
