Lancome Genefique Youth Activator Review

August 05, 2011


A Lancome product to review! I was given Lancome Genefique Youth Activator when I visited Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation Launching Event as you guys can read here and I'm really excited to see what improvement this product gives to my skin!

Lancome's revolutionary discovery destined for all women around the world is continuing its breakthrough in the cosmetics word. Genefique Youth Activator was first launched in March 2009 and became the world's first skincare product to revive the activity of the genes of youth for visibly rejuvenated, smoother, and more luminous skin in just 7 days!

Within 18 months, 3 million bottles of Genefique Youth Activator have been sold. Sold every 4 seconds around the world makes this product the best seller and receive many awards for Lancome's skincare history

Genefique Line needs 10 years of research and 7 patents for outstanding efficacy. Genefique forumulation relaunch the activity of certain genes, thereby boosting synthesis of the proteins that typify young skin

Over time, some genes can become inactive or overactive due to certain reasons, resulting skin becomes lined and loses its optimal appearance. This problem result Lancome to produce Genefique which contains a lot of proteins, proved to activate genes

Over 100 women tested the effects of Genefique for two months and almost all of them say that skin was immediately smoother, more suppler, more luminous, and even complexion



How to use this product =

  • Clean your face and start with your eye cream and toner first

  • Drop 4-5 drops of youth activator on your hand, and pat the liquid on your face to 5 sections. forehead, jaw, nose, left cheek, and right cheek

  • Spread it evenly on your face and massage it lightly

  • Use moisturizer and your night cream afterwards

What I feel after using it =

  • My skin feels softer and smoother than before use the activator

  • My oil on T-Zone decreases, almost can't notice the oilyness anymore!

  • Skin feels hydrated and calm

  • Skin feels tighten

  • Evens out my skin tone

Before & After

Okay, so first thing, I had a break out. a condition where my skin got a lot of redness and acnes because of irritation of a product. I know what's happened, I was trying out a brand R foundation. My skin is not sensitive to begin with, but this foundation successfully destroyed my skin and I was like T____T

So I still used my usual skincare routine, but what's different is that I add one product on my skin, which is Lancome Genefique youth Activator


Left side : Before. Right side : After

I honestly DON'T EDIT any pictures of this, the different lighting of course gives different feeling but you guys can see that my redness and allergic disappear! Also my redness is healed completely and now I can say that my bumps almost gone as well!

this photo look silly because its different angle la lol but i hope you all have idea about how amazing this product works on my skin!

I've been using it for 7 days at night only and I'm shocked by how this product heals my skin condition! i dont say that my skin is back to my normal again but seriously this product helps me a lot when I'm suffering with skin problem!

I look pale on the picture because i just changed my bedroom's light a few days ago, and it's tooooo light. its not because of the product, though it gives brightening effect =D


Final Opinion =

This product is seriously amazing! T_____T I only have been using it for 7 days and only at night and see how this product improves my skin! I can finally be released from break out! Okay suck to use R foundation!  I will never try the foundation anymore T_T but thanks to it, I can say that this product can  help you if you suffer from acne as well

Though it's so expensive, but I think every drops worth it coz its just improve my skin T____T I just cant find any flaw of this product, only its super expensive! So if you really want to purchase it, go saving your money instead of buying clothes or shoes or food or anything! lol

  4. sebenernya kalo aku bilang sih lancome ini gak terlalu mahal costnya. jangan di lihat dari pertama kali beli :) belinya bisa buat brapa lama dan pemakaiannya brp banyak.. aku pake produk ini 1th loh.. dan masih belum habis.. (1hari 1x sih) hydrazennya juga aku pake 1hr 1x kadang 2 kali pun dah 1 th gak abis :) pakenya dikit banget secolek dikit banget...di bandingkan bbrp produk lain yang harus pake buanyak banget ampe tanganku blepotan :)

    dan sebenernya lancome cukup baik juga sih kasih free2, kalo kamu udah member kan suka kasih email tuh.. mereka suka random kasih free sample cuma2 tiap ada produk baru keluar (aku buanyak banget sampe ga bisa pakenya 1 1)

    tapi memang cost banget untuk wanita under 23th yang masih belum cukup mapan secara finansial sih..

    btw aku suka reviewannya (apa karena aku penggemar lancome yah? hahaha) LOL

  5. Hasilnya oke banget ya... tapi harganya bikin pingsan.. ;)

  6. sip sippp ^^u rajin2 mampir yah ehehe

  7. memang mahal, tapi klo pengen dapet kulit yang perfect memang butuh perawatan ekstra :)

  8. iya, memang biasa produk mahal itu jauh lebih lama habisnya karna dipake sdikit aja udah bisa buat satu muka :)

    aku pengen coba hydrazennya, waktu itu uda pernah coba sii creamnya, beneran calming banget, redness ilang, terus jadi relax :) skincare lancome so far bagus di mataku hehe..

    memang lancome itu generous (y) cuman memang ini u/ kalangan menengah ke atas pangsa pasarnya, tapi harga gak bohong deh :)
