    I got this product about a week ago and have used it morning and night for 7-8 days and my skin looks very clear and even. I felt like the weather changes cold to warm caused overall dullness and just something I couldn't put my finger on . After using this I look revived !!!

    Disappointing

    By Manduhlyn

    from San Diego, CA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum:

    My friend who is 20 years older than me swears by this serum and her skin does look unbelievably fresh and dewy all the time. I received 2 small samples and, so far, am not impressed at all. It does feel good on skin going on, but does not have the "miraculous" property of making my skin look any younger. My friend suggested I continue using, so I did just purchase a big bottle of it, but I am not hopeful. I will give it a shot though. We all have different skin and what works for one may not work for another. I did have high hopes.

      If I'm using Visionnaire Crescendo™ Progressive Night Peel along with this serum at night, can you please let me know what product should I use first, the peel or serum? Thank you.

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Hi Hannah! We recommend using the Visionnaire Crescendo Dual-Phase Night Peel on clean skin first and then following with your nighttime skincare routine. Thanks for reaching out!

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Hello Guzz! Thank you for reaching out to us. Our Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum does have an added fragrance to the formula but should not be at all overbearing. We hope this information was helpful and that you enjoy the product!

    • Q:

      Can this product be used as a primer before foundation?
      Asked on 3/5/2018 by meganlivesey from matawan, nj

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Thank you for inquiring about our Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum. This product can certainly be applied before applying makeup or can be mixed into to your foundation to give a great glow to the skin. This anti-aging serum works to improve skin's key signs of youth: radiance, elasticity, firmness, skin tone, and smoothness. We also recommend looking into our La Base Pro Oil-Free Primer, which provides a refined skin texture by diffusing light to visibly reduce lines and imperfections. You can find this product here: https://www.ulta.com/la-base-pro-oil-free-primer?productId=xlsImpprod3650168.

    • Q:

      Does this help with minimizing pores?
      Asked on 3/4/2018 by Iluvmakeup from Escondido CA

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Hello! Thank you for your interest in our Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum! This product is great for improving overall skin texture and radiance and it our recommended first step in every skincare routine. However, our Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector is formulated to specifically target the pores. They can be used together or separate. Both are great options for improving your skin! We hope this information was helpful and thank you for reaching out.

    • Q:

      I see that Alcohol Denat is pretty much within your top 5 ingredients. Even though it may help for the good ingredients to penetrate. I also hear that an alcohol ingredient does not evaporate in time and will cause irritation and inflammation. May not be noticeable at first but overtime. What are your thoughts with such high alcohol content in this product?

        Genifique Youth Activating Serum can be used by consumers of any age. We recommend using it under your moisturizer. In the eye area we suggest using Advanced Genifique Light Pearl Eye Illuminator Concentrate.

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Hello Maria! It is wonderful to hear that you are trying our Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum. This product is going to be the first one that you use after you cleanse and tone your face. After using the serum you can apply your Renergie Moisturizer and then your Renergie Eye Cream. We hope this helps to clarify and that you love this serum as much as we do!

    • Q:

      I am 30 years old and generally have good skin. However, I do have mild rosacea and tend to get oily in my T-zone. Is this product suitable for rosacea and does it help with redness? I am looking to start an anti-aging routine, but want to find something that combats redness as well. Any other recommendations? Thanks!
      Asked on 12/16/2017 by Kelly from Mendota, IL

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Hey Kelly! Thank you for asking about our Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum. While this is an amazing serum to add to any regimen we would like to suggest that you take a look at another serum. We would like to let you know that none of our products claim to help rosacea but if you were looking for a product to assist with redness, we would like to recommend that you take a look at our Advanced Genifique Sensitive Serum. This product helps to soothe the skin when it becomes irritated and red from daily stresses. You can learn more about this product here: http://bit.ly/2zjXbCQ. Since you do have rosacea, we would like to strongly recommend that you speak with your doctor before using this product to ensure that it is suitable for your skin. We hope this helps!

    • Q:

      According to the directions after you wash your face you apply the serum and then your moisturizer. Does this mean I do not use a toner. I feel the toner is an important part of the skin routine thank you

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Hello Kitty! Sorry for the confusion, you can certainly use a toner before the use of our Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum. You would want to cleanse and tone your face and then use this serum as your first step afterwards. We hope this helps to clarify!
