Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate

I had the chance to tryout the NEW Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate, courtesy of Lancome. The brand is no stranger in the world of skincare and cosmetics. It is the new and improved version of the original  Lancôme Génifique, that is a result attained by the researchers after 14 years of research. 

Product Information
Name     : Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate
Size        : 30ml
Price      : RM275

Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate is formulated with new active ingredients that would boost visible signs of youthfulness and aid in skin's recovery during both day and night. It promises results in 7 days of using - skin will look younger and feels rejuvenated. After 8 weeks, it promises to improve the 10 key signs of youthful looking skin - fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, smooth appearance of texture, smooth feel of texture, firmness, even skin tone, skin clarity, toned feel, and overall appearance of skin condition.

The product comes in a glass bottle that feels really nice in your palm. I must say the bottle is quite heavy and it might weigh down your vanity bag whilst travelling.This bottle comes with an innovative self-loading dropper that is attached to its cap. Having this dropper would definitely make dispensing so much better and reduce possible wastage as you can control the amount dispensed. All you need to do is twist to open, the product will be loaded and ready for use. Just click the top to dispense the right amount. 

The serum is water-based that is thick and looks gel-like. It is very lightweight with a light fragrance. For a person with sensitive skin, I am happy that it does agitate my skin at all. 
Upon blending, it absorbs into the skin almost immediately with no long waiting time. It leave the skin feeling hydrated and smooth to the touch. Even using on its own after applying facial toner, my skin feels hydrated throughout the day and less oily.

I have been using the Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate for a week plus now and I am very happy with the results. It does live up the 7 days promise as I begin noticing that my skin feels much smoother, firmer, and hydrated.  The fine lines around my eyes and my smile lines are less visible now.

My final thoughts? 

My Likes:
  • Lives up to the claims
  • Lightweight, non-oily, water-based
  • Light fragrance
  • Quick absorption
  • Great self-loading dropper for easy dispensing
My Dislikes:
  • The price is quite steep per bottle
  • Heavy glass bottle, not suitable for travelling

You can find the Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate at all Lancome outlets in Malaysia.
The prices are RM275 / RM360 / RM485 if I am not mistaken.
The sizes available are 30ml / 50ml  / 75ml.

Till next time,
