Beauty Review. Lancôme’s Age Eraser Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate

April 16, 2009 • Beauty


A product that claims to give you visibly younger looking skin in 7 days? I'm in. I don't care what it is! Pour it on me. Lancôme's new Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate is a groundbreaking skincare
product which took a decade in the making. According to Lancôme we all have some youth left in us, we just have to 'reactivate' it.

Génifique is hard to define, because it's not moisturizer, nor is it a serum. You apply it to a freshly washed face and then add your serum, etc. Clinical results after 7 days of use: 85% saw more luminous skin,
82% saw more even skin tone, 91% said skin felt softer, 82% said skin
appearance improved.

OK, what does it really do? Génifique boosts gene activity. Genes produce specific proteins, that can be found on the skin's surface. These proteins are the skin's signature of youth. With age, their presence diminishes. Bummer right? Génifique to the rescue! Reboost your gene's activity which in turn
stimulates the youth proteins in your skin and improves tone, texture
and luminosity. Your skin should appear lit from within.

How do you use it? Apply Génifique morning and night after cleansing and toning, avoiding eye area. Follow with serum and moisturizer.

Here are some comments from a two-week trial test group who were not told the name of the product or the brand:

• “It felt like I just took silk and laid it all over my face.”

• “I saw a change in my skin right from the beginning and it got better as days went on.”

• “I got several compliments that week. They said to me, ‘Wow, you look
really good. What are you doing? Did you change your makeup? It looked
like I did something.’”

•  “Even my kids were like, ‘Oh Ma, your skin looks so soft!’”

•  “My face looked younger, fresher.”

So what did I think after using Génifique?:

I loved that it's not sticky and glides on easily, a little goes a long way. Immediately  my skin felt softer, but it took me about 10 days to see results. Then I noticed finer lines (especially around my eyes) and a little more of a glow. Have people stopped me on the street? No. At least not for that reason. Have my friends told me I look different/better? A few. Has my husband noticed anything? Get real, I would have to shave my head or light myself on fire for him to notice. Do I feel better when I look in the mirror? Yes. Would I recommend this product to my friends and our readers? Absolutely.

Have you used this product? Let's discuss. Leave a comment…
