LANCÔME ADVANCED GÉNIFIQUE SENSITIVE SERUM


Once I read a quote: „Sometimes you need those bad days, to help you appreciate the good ones.“ When we have a bad day it automatically reflects on our body and skin, particularly on face. Whatever they mean, there's a solution for bad skin days - Lancôme Advanced Génifique Sensitive Dual Concentrate Serum, a night guardian who bids them bye-bye.

No matter how much attention we devout to skin care, bad days are always possible. Today's life style, a variety of external and internal factors such as travel, air-conditioning, seasonal changes, air pollution, late nights, fatigue, stress and hormonal cycles affects the skin and can cause a havoc. All of them, regardless of age and skin type, result in so-called bad skin day.

Dual Concentrate serum consists of two parts: Base Concentrate with a probiotic extract that sooths, revives and amplifies skin radiance and Blue Concentrate with antioxidants which protects the skin. Both come in one vial but are not joined – two formulas need to be freshly mixed before use. We must do it ourselves, by pulling and twisting a cap and release blue into base liquid. It was very interesting to see how blue and transparent concentrates mix together, which reminded me of a blend of painting colors. After the blue fluid pours out of pipette, we give the bottle a quite shake and witness the magic before our eyes: by mutual permeation the blue color gradually disappears and a gray-silver shade becoms visible through the glass.

When the two concentrates are evenly mixed, the formulas are transformed into one product – our new night saviour. After the whole procedure the cap with blue concentrate is to be removed and replaced by silver pipette with logo on top, which we will utilize at each subsequent use. The serum comes in wonderful, 20-milliliter black-pellucid bottle with the above mentioned silver pipette. Packaging looks very elegant and proves that in Lancôme thought of it as well, about packing that would be worthy of the quality of product itself.

Freshly activated Dual Concentrate will help to soften the skin whenever necessary and, like Advanced Génifique Serum, is enriched with ferment, bifidobacteria and lactobacilli extract, along with ferulic acid and vitamin E. They provide instant comfort and reduce dryness, the skin feels soft, smooth, bright and calm and the bad days become the past!

In order to properly connect the ingredients, the bottle needs to be lightly shaken before each use and gray serum on the skin turns translucent, similar to scented drop of water, with the aroma that whiffs away after application, while the texture is fresh, plump and fast absorbing. It's recommendable to use the serum almost every night for a period of 2 months after compounding. Slow consumption is a great advantage, even though I apply it on my face and cleavage area.

On the official site it's suggested to complete the routine in perfect pair combination of employing Advanced Génifique serum, bestseller that has reached iconic status, in the morning before moisturizing and Advanced Génifique Sensitive over the night. During the day I'm using Lancôme Génifique Crème, a daily hydrating cream that with its velvety formula ensures youthful complexion, softness and vibrant glow.

The packaging is identical to that of serum, ie black and silver with limpid lower part. My excitement is adequately expressed in the fact that I depleted all of it so I can't show you the texture, but I would describe it as creamy and gelatinous with quick absorbtion and light coating.

As I wrote before, I prefer serums over night creams because of formulas with high concentration of nutrients. I'm more than satisfied with this one and I immediately bought another pack. I apply it as a final step in facial skin care, every night before bedtime, and wake up with fresh, soft and silky skin. I don't just use it on bad days, but constantly, so I can tell that my skin is a stranger to them. Currently I'm not purchasing new Génifique cream as I'm utilizing Dior Hydra Life Sorbet (you can read the review here) and I can confirm that they remarkably complement each other and take ideal care of my skin, which looks better every day.

Do you have bad skin days? Which products do you use? Have you tried Lancôme Génifique cream or Advanced Génifique serum? What are your impressions? Please write me in the comments?
Till the next post, all the best!

  2. I love that quote and how you related it to our skin because it's so true! No matter how well I take care of my skin I always have bad skin days, and it always makes me appreciate the days when it is good. I've never used this product before, but I find it so interesting that you mix the two parts yourself when you get it. This was such a great review with great details, and I love all of your product photos!

  28. Nikad pre nisam čula za ovaj proizvod, ali mi deluje veoma interesantno zbog samog načina upotrebe. Ja sam neko ko može da potvrdi da se ti loši dani zaista održavaju na naš organizam, pogotovo kožu. Kada god sam pod stresom moja koža lica jednostavno to oseti i onda danima trpim posledice. Mislim da bi ovo bio odličan proizvod za mene. Baš mi se dopada recenzija i zaista si je odlično napisala. Fotke su prelepe! :*

      I ja također ponekad imam loše dane, poslije kojih mi je potrebno neko vrijeme da se koža oporavi, te zbog toga nastojim izbjegavati stres koliko je to moguće i njegovati je što bolje.

You really took this to the next level and that makes it really stand out. That quote really stuck with me and I think it's something we should all remind ourselves more of. A quote I read the other day which really stood out to me goes like this, "I didn't loose the gold, I won the silver." I love the idea of the Lancome product how you yourself insert the blue serum into it. I think that is so creative and I will definitely have to check it out!

      Ukoliko ti se manjak sna odražava na koži, definitivno probaj ovaj serum jer kako u Lancomu navode ovo je serum namjenjen za "loše dane kože" i iz osobnog iskustva mogu potvrditi da stvarno pomaže jer kožu čini punijom, blistavijom i na površinu izlači njen prirodni sjaj i ljepotu.
