Lancôme was founded in 1935 and it has become one of the world’s leading luxury beauty brand. They offer some of the best skincare, beauty and fragrance products.
So when a brand like this comes up with a product and claim to give visible results in 7 days, it’s worth a try. Right?
I bought this Serum/Concentrate after reading all the claims made by the brand. Also because of the fact that I love Lancôme as a brand. Their perfumes are some of my favorites.
About the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate :-
As per the brand, Advanced Génifique is a powerful youth activating face serum that reveals radiant, smoother skin in just 7-days. The main ingredient Bifidus prebiotic targets the 10 signs of aging, visibly improving the radiance and overall skin texture in a week. It is suitable for all skin types, even the sensitive skin.
About the Ingredients of the Serum :-
The Serum has 10% Bifidus Prebiotic as an Active Ingredient. It also has Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C and Ceramides in it. The Serum is sulfates and parabens free.
The Main Active ingredient Bifidus extract is a probiotic product consisting of Bifidobacterium bacteria generally found in dairy products. It helps in protecting moisture barrier in skin. It acts like an antioxidant and help prevent the free radical damage to the skin.
The Vitamin C helps brightens the skin and helps to improves the uneven skin tone.
Full Ingredients List is as follow :-
Water, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Dimethicone, Hydroxyethylpiperazine Ethane Sulfonic Acid, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Adenosine, Faex Extract/Yeast Extract/Extrait De Levure, Peg-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Salicyloyl Phytosphingosine, Ammonium Polyacryldimethyltauramide/Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate, Limonene, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Disodium Edta, Octyldodecanol, Citronellol, Fragrance.
Hyaluronic acid which is a humectant, draws and retains moisture into the skin to keep it hydrated.
Hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the surroundings, and if it doesn’t get moisture around it will draw it from the skin itself leaving it drier. Always make sure to apply a hydrating moisturizer for hyaluronic acid to work best.
About the Texture of the Serum :-
The texture of the Concentrate/Serum is very silky because of the dimethicone present in it. Dimethicone gives it the super silky texture and also fills in the fine lines and pores for a smoother looking skin.
The concentrate is very light weight and gets absorbed quickly into the skin. It does not leave an oily or greasy residue afterwards. It’s hydrating, however if you have very dry skin, you might feel the need of a moisturizer on top.
How and When to Use the Serum :-
You can use it both morning and evening. Apply as the first step after cleansing and toning your skin. Follow up with your usual daily routine. It comes with a self loading dropper which gives the exact amount you need. Don’t forget to wear your sunscreen during mornings.
Vitamin C and Sunscreen works really well together to brighten and protect your skin. Always wear your sunscreens in the morning, no matter if you’re staying home or going out.
My experience with Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate :-
Although I have a well behaved skin most of the times but I still get some congested pores and dryness. I love the way this serum feels on my skin. Skin feels plump and hydrated. I wake up to a bright, radiant looking skin.
Because, at the moment I do not struggle with fine lines or wrinkles. I can’t judge the product on that part. However, I do have visibly large pores near my nose and they feels a lot smoother and less visible with this serum.
Where to buy Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate :-
I bought mine from Sephora. You can buy it from Lancôme online store or other Sephora equivalent beauty stores in your region.
There are so many size variants available to choose from on Lancôme website. The product is expensive Yes, but for me it’s worth the price. You can go for small sizes or trial samples to give it a try.
Overall Conclusion :-
The concentrate seems to do everything it claims for. With consistent use for 7-10 days, you’ll definitely notice visible improvements in the overall skin texture and tone. Skin’s moisture barrier gets improved and there is a subtle glow and radiance. I have been using it since more than an year now and I can see the difference in my skin if I stop using it, so I can tell it’s the serum that makes my skin plump and radiant.
