Lancome Genifique Serum Du Jour 3.7.11

This little wonder bottle has been sitting in a drawer for over a year. Seriously. I was given this and I put in a drawer and totally forgot about it.

I know, I know! Shame on me.

Anyway, I took it out of that drawer about 2 months ago and thank god I did. Lancome Genifique Serum is now one of my very favorite skin products!

Anyway, after about a week or 2 of using I saw a very noticeable difference, my skin was much softer, smoother and more moisturized, almost plumper even.

When you open the bottle it looks like a milky watery serum. After one use you dont really notice a difference, the magic happens about a week after using. The way I use this is, I put it on under my daily moisturizer in the morning. I take about one dropper full (about a dime size amount) all over my face. It is very watery and spreads very easily. I let it dry then slather on my daily moisturizer (which is cetaphil daily lotion).

What does Lancome say about it?

Our first skincare that boosts the activity of genes1 and stimulates the production of youth proteins2. A true skincare innovation with 7 worldwide patents pending, Génifique is the foundation of every woman’s skincare at any age or for any skin concern.

2Clinical study on skin proteins associated with young skin – France.

Visibly younger skin in just 7 days. Skin looks as if lit from within – breathtaking radiant. Its youthful quality returns: cushiony soft and velvety to the touch. Drop by drop, skin is vibrant with youth, its tone becomes astonishingly even, its texture dramatically refined.

• Drop by drop, skin is infused with life.
• Vibrant with youth, skin looks as if lit from within - breathtakingly radiant.
• Skin's youthful quality returns: cushiony soft and velvety to the touch.
• Skin's tone is astonishingly even; its texture dramatically refined.

Do I think it claims to do what it says?? Heck Yes. The price is $58 for a small bottle and $98 for a larger one. I would definitely recommend going to your Lancome counter and trying to get a sample to try it out. I also would reccomend this to oily and dry skin types, it is not greasy nor oily it dries down to a perfect skin like finish.

I am a fan. Have you tried?
What do you think?


  1. I bought a bottle of this months ago but still haven't gotten around to using it. Will definitely take it out of the treasure chest tonight. xx

  2. I absolutely love Génifique! It's truly a miracle in a bottle!
    Lancome claims you start to see results after 7 days, but I saw results after 3 and a half days! I use it morning and night, and I'm almost done my first bottle already!

  3. I'm excited to try! I got a free one so I'll see if the magic happens for me as well (:

  4. Hmm mine's been in a drawer unopened for about a year too! I hope it hasn't gone off. I'll dig it out today now LOL
