Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum

If I was allowed to only use brand of skincare ever again, Lancome would win, hands down.

What it is:
A powerful antiaging serum. 

What it is formulated to do:
Inspired by cutting-edge science, Lancôme introduces Advanced Génifique—a serum so powerful it creates more radiant and smoother skin that you can see and feel. This innovative formula featuring Génifique’s powerful complex with added biotechnology-derived ingredient is incredible to the touch, and acts on 10 key signs of youth including texture, resiliency, elasticity, firmness, sagginess, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, clarity, and skintone. Complete with an exclusive self-loading dropper that gives you the perfect dose of serum for each application, skin will feel refreshed, renewed, and healthy. 

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates 
- Phthalates 

What else you need to know:
This product comes in an advanced self-loading dropper. 

Research results:
Clinical results after 8 weeks of self-assessments on 34 women:
- Texture +57%
- Resiliency +49%
- Elasticity +50%
- Firmness +49%
- Sagginess +46%
- Fine lines +42%
- Wrinkles +46%
- Radiance +52%
- Clarity +47%
- Even skintone +42%

While pricey, this stuff is mega concentrated- a tiny bit will go a really long way. If you have oily or combination skin, this will actually replace a serum/moisturizer combo since it's quite hydrating. It diminishes fine lines, lightens dark spots, calms reactive redness, and in general is a badass mofo of a serum. When I use this at night in the winter, I go ahead and put on a night cream over it (unless I'm being lazy) and in the summer use it alone except for spot treatment. In the daytime, it provides the perfect amount of light hydration, just be sure to use a foundation with SPF! 

Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate 30ml/1oz   Regularly $80, but Beauty Encounter has it on sale through the link right now for $58!
