Just about every Lancome GWP event lately has these 0.5 oz tubes of Genifique, an anti-aging serum. I somehow managed to go through nearly one ounce of the product and liked the way it felt, but since I only used it occasionally and didn't work it into my regular skin care routine (so many serums, so little time) it never amounted to real testing, so I couldn't assess the results.
However, when my sister complained that her skin could use some extra help, as she was seeing the effects of very dry air, stress and constant chasing after a toddler on her face, I remembered the nice plumped up feeling I got from Genifique and bought her a bottle.
My sister has been using the serum for over a month now and is happy with the results. She was surprised how thin it was- the texture is practically watery and it sinks right into the skin within seconds. It doesn't look like it's doing anything, but quickly enough she realised her skin was looking much better, her regular moisturizer started performing its duties again and the fine lines that started to appear as a result of dryness went back to where they came from.
Bottom line: My sister highly recommends.
Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate ($78, 1 oz) is available from every semi-decent department store as well as from the company's website (there's also a larger 1.7 oz bottle). I've been using the GWP tubes and bought the bottle for my sister at my local Bloomie's.
