Most Helpful Positive Review Worth Every Penny!
I am NOT a person who goes on and on about a product. I have tried about every product to reduce wrinkles and never thought any one worked any better than another nor did I really notice any difference in my skin condition. I am 58 and have always taken excellent care of my skin however, as we age no matter what we do, wrinkles will appear. I was in a store with a friend about 2 weeks ago to purchase some products (we both use Lancome make-up) and they gave her a 7-day sample of this product. I was just standing there and the lady asked if I would like to try this for 7 days. I kinda laughed to myself thinking...are you nuts, there is nothing that can change my skin in 7 days. I did not want to seem rude so I said that would be great, all the time knowing there is NO WAY I would ever pay that much money for a little bottle of a product just because they claim it will reduce wrinkles and make younger looking skin. I threw it in my purse and we continued on our shopping trip. That night I thought O, I have that sample I guess I will use it instead of just letting in lay in a drawer and I started. Never thought anything about it much UNTIL on the 5th morning I was putting on my eye make-up and noticed the somewhat loose skin above my eyes had less noticeable wrinkles and I could put on my eyeliner WITHOUT pulling my lid straight ( most of you gals my age will understand what I am talking about). Still not thinking alot about it until I reallly looked and BINGO in 5 days my face looked WONDERFUL. I had been having a lot of trouble getting my eyeliner straight because of the wrinkles and loose skin on the lids-not anymore. I went to the computer that very minute and purchased the largest bottle. I finished my 7 days and was so worried it would all change because I didn't have my new product yet- it stayed beautiful for the few days until I received my bottle. It is my intention to NEVER be without this serum.
Most Helpful Critical Review Please bring back the original genifique
Approximately six years ago I was introduced to the original genifique, and after just 5 days I was completely head over heals for this product. My skin had never looked or felt better. Then approximately five years ago Lancome changed the formula up a little and introduced the world to advanced genifique. I loved the original so much that I contined to use the product religiously. It seemed fairly similar to the orignial in consistency and smell. My skin started to slowly decline but I chalked it up to age and a possible change in diet over the years. I recently was cleaning out a drawer that I kept samples in and came across an unopened sample of the original genifique. I travel quite a bit for work and decided that I would hold on to it just in case. I ran out of the full sized bottle of advanced genifique and used the sample of the original genifique until I could get to the store for more. After just one use I noticed a difference between the two formulas and by the time the sample was gone my skin had looked and felt as it did years before. I bought a new bottle of advanced genifique and am not receiving the same benefits. I have decided not to continue purchasing a substardard product that is essentially doing nothing for me. Please, please, please bring back the original formula so that i fall in love with my skin again.

Stung my skin
IndyAD from Indianapolis, IN
I have dry but not particularly sensitive skin. I received a large bottle of this serum free and tried it twice. Both evenings it caused my face to sting; maybe the alcohol in it?
Not original formula
airtime from WV
I used this in my late 20s and it did wonders for my skin. I'm now in my late 30s and decided to try it again. Not good. The formula has changed and it broke me out the whole time I used it. The serum is now created with cheap and pore clogging ingredients like alcohol, yeast extract, castor oil, and fragrance, but at the same price as original. Will not buy again even on sale. Bring back the original formula. Customers know when you change ingredients, Lancôme. :(
This has irritating fragrance in it!
Alexandra from Michigan
This product has fragrance in it! Fragrance is WELL KNOWN to be irritating to the skin!
No professional skincare products have fragrance in them. This product line is not professional. You def won't see esthetician's using it.
World greatest serum!
Nancyjbeauty from Michigan
I love this serum it sinks right into the skin. It absorbs quickly. I love the feeling of it. I've noticed my skin more bouncy and plump. I've been using it for months and I can't live with out it.
Try the sample!
BlueMoonScorpio from Denver, CO
This stuff is great! I love the subtle life this brings to my skin. I used the sample daily and so glad I did. On to purchase the full size. Highly recommended.
Broke me out.
Amber from Peoria,IL
I have combo skin and normally not sensitive to products. This broke me out like a hormonal teenager the entire time I used it. I used four weeks in hopes it would resolve and I would see some sort of results. Nothing good. Just acne scars to work on. My skin was better before using this.
Rach from New Jersey
This stuff makes your skin so soft and moisturized. I can't believe I waited so long to buy it. I recommend it.
Mack from Greenville SC
If anything, it is drying!! For the price, would expect a great product!
Cornerstone of my beauty routine
Bronco baby 66 from Redlands, CA
This serum is life changing. My eye doctor looked at my age, looked at my skin through the magnifier and demanded: "What are you using on your face?". It's amazing serum, cannot do without it, in fact I use genifique yeux also. Highly recommended.
Milee425 from Baltimore, Maryland
Genefique serum is seriously a must have, I use it twice a day every day and it really adds this glow to my skin that I've never seen from any other product. I literally can't go without it, if I run out I have to restock immediately!
jennifer from kalamazoo, MI
I just love it. I use it morning and night under my moisturizer. my skin feels firm and smooth and my tone is more even.
njgirl from nj
No skin effects whatsoever after weeks of use.
Total waste of money.
Suki from New Orleans
I used it before my other serum. It smells good like other cream or toner.
What happened to the original formula?
Olytown from WA
This is not the original formula. The prior formula was very effective and produced fast results. I feel this is a cheaper version riding on the reputation of the original. It does almost nothing and I have noticed only a slight improvement in the appearance of pores. I have finished one bottle with nothing to create product loyalty with me.
Does what it claims
Bett! from Amherst NH
Moisturized, younger texture , firmer, even skin tone
Siri80 from Virginia
Tightens the skin. After few days of usage, face is visibly brighter.
Love this product
Cui Cui-Goldman from Nassau County, New York
This is really the best serum for your skin. I use it daily, once in the morning, once at bedtime. My skin feels very refreshed upon application.
Disappointed from Ca
Extremely disappointed!! I was looking forward to using this product and unfortunately I had a terrible reaction burned my under eye.
Love the serum, packaging...not so much
LiLp from NJ
I have used up a bottle and I love the serum so much I keep reaching for it almost every night. The only problem I have with this product is the packaging. I feel like at this price point, Lancome should come up with a better packaging so we won't have to try to get the last three - four uses worth of product on the bottom.
Advanced Génifique serum concentrated
Ivonne170 from UAE
I've been using this product for a quite long now and my skin has scars from acne, I felt it more soft and fresh and younger but now I have a question and is important to me to know if this product is safe during pregnancy, kinda worry about it))???
My "Go to"
la francaise from DE
I'm in my late 50s and I have changed my skin care routine over the years, but I never stop using Genefique. I've been using it for years and I always come back to it after giving in and trying a sample of some other serum. It keeps my skin soft and supple.
I've would but this again
Chrissy from NC
My face looks better, brighter
Denatured alcohol & fragrance
RMJH from Midwest
I got a sample in a gift bag, excited to try. Then read the ingredients, denatured alcohol is #4 and fragrance is the last. What a disappointment. Too much for dry skin.
I would buy again
Yreyes from New Jersey
I use it every morning and night. It keeps my skin moisture especially now during fall/winter. This is the second time I buy this product and got the largest bottle.
