Lancome - Youthful Aura

Let’s get real, ladies.

I’m already in my late twenties and I can’t believe the years flew byjust like that. 
Few years ago, whenever I  purchase skincare products, I will always reach for the whitening range or the hydration range as those were my top priority. I would even skip the step of using serums because I thought all my skin needed was hydration and whitening. 

Then, something about my skin changed, that youthful glow and healthy appearance seemed to have faded and I could even see fine lines forming at the corners of my eyes (Oh, the horror). 

At Lancôme, the secret to beauty is the Youthful Aura…& I was slowly losing mine!! My skin started to look dull and I had to rely on makeup to look fresher and more vibrant.  To me, having that Youthful Aura means being comfortable & confident in my own skin, not needing to cake on much foundation or makeup to look & feel beautiful

As much as we wish to avoid the topic of aging, the truth is that all of us are facing it and going through it every day. It is almost impossible to defy aging sans cosmetics surgery but I’ve been maintaining my current skin condition & delaying signs of aging with the help of these babies from – Lancôme Advanced Genifique Series.

I got my first bottle of the Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate more than 2 years ago and I just fell in love with it right after.
This little black bottle was really precious to me and it is an item that I’ve been purchasing over and over again. 

So when I found out that Lancôme would like to give me a complete set of Advanced Genifique to review, I was over the moon because I’ve been using the Youth Activating Concentrate for years now!

Aside from the product, I would say I am particularly drawn to the design of the packaging. The dispenser is in a “dropper” form and it is a really clever touch. Just 1 drop is enough for me to apply over my entire face & neck and I’ll say it is much more hygienic this way as my fingers will not be in contact with the rest of the product. 

It is needless to say that the Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate has been inside my skincare routine. 

My simple skincare routine goes like this:
Toner > Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate > Eye cream > Whitening Serum > Moisturizer.

I love how quickly my skin absorbs the product and here’s how I apply it:
  • - Dispense 1 drop of the concentrate onto my palms
  • - Warm it up between palms
  • - Spread the product onto my face & neck in an upwards motion
  • - Gently pat it into my skin

The reason that I apply the Advanced Genifique right before all my other products is because it boosts the efficiency of ANY skincare products that I apply after by up to 3X

My skin has never looked better and happier.

I also tried the Advanced Genifique Yeux Eye Illuminator for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised.

Firstly, the applicator wand is just so special! I’ve never seen anything like this and initially I had no idea how to use it and why it was designed this way.
The tip of the wand is made of metal so there is a cooling effect when it touches your skin.

The applicator is bendable as it is meant for gentle massaging purposes around the eye area and the slim tip helps to reach even the corners of the eye area. As mentioned earlier, I really enjoy the cooling effect it has when the metal tip touches my skin and I feel that this helps de-puff my eye bags too!

I use the Advanced Genifique Yeux Eye Illuminator during the day time and my eye area is instantly refreshed. I just look fresh, wide-eyed & ready to go.

The Lancome Genifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Concentrate was a first for me too. 
I was expecting myself to like the product because I really enjoyed the Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate & I really did!

The texture of eye cream is of a slightly thicker consistency and I use it only during the night.
It really hydrates my eye area and I find myself waking up to firmer skin the next morning. The fine lines that threatened its appearance were also diminished & fainter with each passing day.

What makes a woman beautiful? 
An exceptional light called the Youthful Aura.

Lancome’s Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum is the solution to creating and obtaining this Youthful Aura.

& Kate Winslet, one of the ambassadors for the Lancome Genifique series, is the definition of positive beauty to me.
