Review: Lancome Genefique

Friday, 8 February 2013

How many times have I thought about trying out something more luxurious as part of my skincare routine? Countless times!

I regularly seem to have samples, deluxe or otherwise, in my collection which at times, just sit in my drawers not being used. Lancome Genifique was one of them.
This was something I received a few months back but did not really know what to do with it. I left it in my drawer for a couple of months and then decided one day, to just try it out.

The bottle has 7ml worth of product which I think is quite ample considering you literally need a tiny amount.

It has a dropper attached to the lid which makes it very easy to pick up the liquid product inside. The first day I used it, I thought I would try it in the eye area first, because that would really show me if it made a difference. So instead of using my eye cream that day, I applied this.

It is pretty much just like water, although a tiny bit greasier and thicker. It felt cooling as I applied it to my eye area.

After application, I went straight to sleep. The next morning, I looked in the mirror and... what? No puffiness under my eyes!

I was literally open mouthed. I always have a little puffiness when I wake up, but that morning, I looked, normal!

It is expensive. Very expensive. Priced at £56 for 30ml, I just hope I can get a hold of another sample again!

- Reduces puffiness
- Feels lightweight but moisturising
- Absorbs into skin easily

- Expensive!

So there you have it, I now wear this instead of my eye cream. I am not sure if I am 'supposed' to but really, I don't care! This works for me and I will continue using it!

Have you tried this? What did you think?

  1. sounds promising .. nice review x

  2. I haven't tried it but the price tag puts me off despite it's positive effects. :(

    1. I agree, it is the price that puts me off too. Not sure what I will do once I run out of this x

  3. I don't get what it is actually, is it an eye cream or a primer?
