Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum: Editor’s review

I’ve used the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum on and off since they first launched the product in 2009 – that’s 10 years ago! And I’ve always loved the product since the first time I’ve tried it. Because of the nature of my job, I’m often required to try out different and new products, so it makes it hard for me to stick to any routine, but because of how much I love this serum, I’ve always come back to it whenever I have the opportunity.

lancome advanced genifique serum review

I have used Lancome Advanced Genifique on and off for 10 years.

I like the previous versions of the serum, and I always go back to the product for many reasons, including the fact that it absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated immediately. I also always see a difference in my skin’s texture and radiance within a week.

Trying out the NEW Advanced Génifique serum, with Microbiome science

This upgraded version feels just as luxurious as the previous versions and is absorbed very quickly, which leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated.

The morning after I applied the product, I found that my skin is more hydrated than before. I also observed a subtle radiance. After using this for a week, the increase in hydration level is definitely most evident for me. But my skin also feels more “youthful”; it’s bouncier and looks more radiant. There’s a je ne sais quoi about my complexion that I really like. In fact, I have people telling me that I look like I had a good night’s rest in the morning, when I haven’t changed my sleep routine at all. This effect continues to show after I use the serum consistently for two weeks.

As a fan of the serum for the last 10 years, I love that the product is always pleasantly familiar regardless of the number of renditions it went through. I’m happy to see that Lancôme isn’t sitting on their laurels after the release of such a good serum, but continue to advance the technology in the serum. I look forward to having a serum that continues to improve itself as I get older and have more need for better skincare products. It has served me well in the last 10 years and I look forward to another 10 years of great skincare with it.

Summary

Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum

All of the reviewers enjoyed using the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum – many of them mentioned that the serum is very lightweight and gets easily absorbed by the skin, leading to an instant burst of hydration on their face.

The most common effect that was seen one day after application? More hydrated and supple skin, which subsequently became brighter and firmer with continued usage. A majority have also reported that their wrinkles and fine lines have been significantly reduced so that they can see smoother skin. Most of them agree that they were impressed by the visible results from using the Advanced Génifique serum, which other serums have not been able to do for them.

For the reviewers who have used a previous version of the serum before, they agree that while this upgraded formula has kept what they like about the old formula (lightweight texture) while providing even better and faster results, which has made them love this skincare product even more.

While all reviewers with sensitive skin have remarked that this serum has not caused any allergic reactions, a few reviewers with oily/easily-clogged skin have experienced clogged pores and tiny bumps after using this, so they recommend that you remember to cleanse and exfoliate your skin thoroughly.

Oily and sensitive skin

I find that my face stopped feeling itchy due to dryness in the air-conditioned office after using the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum for one week. The product is really hydrating, which is great for me because my skin becomes less dry around the corners of my mouth which always peels, and the nasal folds aren’t creasing as much. It also evens out the skin tone and lightened pigmentation almost like a whitening serum – there were also a few days I could leave the house with just concealer for my dark eye circles and no foundation/concealer on the rest of the face!

I feel that the benefits of using this serum come faster with regular usage. The most surprising effect of this product is that it calms my outbreak overnight even though it’s not meant to be an acne product.

I would recommend to friends of my age, especially working ladies who are facing the same dull complexion and dry skin issues, which can be attributed to being in air-conditioned offices for long hours.

Oily and sensitive skin

Initially, I never thought of investing in skincare that targets wrinkles at the age of 25 but this serum has definitely changed my thoughts because it has worked miracles on my skin!

For starters, the Lancôme Advanced Génifique serum feels very cooling and hydrating upon application. It also makes it easy for me to layer on other serums and skincare products afterwards, so I would apply this before doing my makeup so that it goes on more easily.

This has been very effective in treating dull skin and smoothening out wrinkles and fine lines. I saw that my skin gradually became more radiant and youthful over a period of two weeks.

Dry and sensitive skin

I’m very surprised and impressed by the instant improvements to my skin within seven days, which became even more obvious as I continued using the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum.

My dull skin looked a lot more radiant and actually glowed with consistent usage over two weeks. I first noticed that there was a glow to my skin, and then subsequently it was very moisturised and smooth, so there was a reduction in my laugh lines.

In addition, my pores looked a lot smaller after using this serum consistently. I used to have a lot of blackheads on my nose but they have been significantly reduced. I attribute this to the serum as this was the only new product I introduced to my skincare routine in the past two weeks.

Despite the price tag, I believe that anyone will definitely see results the longer they use this. It has both anti-ageing and moisturising benefits that everyone can benefit from, so I will recommend this to others.

Applying this serum immediately made me look awake and refreshed. Fast forward to two weeks later, and I have seen more radiance, reduced fine lines & wrinkles, as well as smoother and more elastic skin.

To be honest, I am super impressed by the serum’s hydration properties. I have never used a serum that is super hydrating yet absorbs quickly and leaves your skin looking all radiant throughout the whole day.

I will definitely recommend this to my family and friends because it’s not everyday that you get a skincare product that gives you instant results!

Nianting, 27
Combination-dry skin

I enjoyed using this serum from Lancôme very much. I used it twice daily and have seen an improvement in my skin. The serum is rich with beneficial nutrients yet very lightweight, so my skin can absorb it easily.

I would start my skincare routine with this serum as this is a great booster for my skin. I also no longer need to use many skincare products because the Génifique serum is already providing what my skin needs.

I noticed that one night after application, my skin produces less oil than usual. As I continue using it over the next two weeks, I observe that my skin feels clearer and more supple, and the redness on my face has been reduced and calmed. My skin tone also looks less dull than before!

I will definitely recommend this to everyone! I feel that this product caters to all skin types and it is power packed with nutrients and ingredients that will benefit your skin – just two weeks of using this daily has made my skin feel better!

The texture of this serum is thicker than water, but after a few seconds you can feel that your skin has absorbed it easily.

My skin is usually dry and flakey, but I see that after using this, the dry pots on my nose and corner of lips are not that visible anymore even after a long day out. The best part is that after two weeks, I don’t even have to wear heavy foundation anymore just to even out my skin, so I can just go out with eye makeup and lip tint!

I really like the Lancôme Advanced Génifique serum as I have tried a few anti-ageing products, before but they took up too much time without being really effective. In contrast, this one from Lancôme gives me such obvious results after two weeks – almost like glass skin that is not oily!

Combination-dry skin

I am impressed that the light texture of this serum absorbs almost instantaneously into the skin, without any oily residue, leaving my face feeling rejuvenated. However, my skin does feels slightly sticky initially, even though the serum had been absorbed.

Apart from just using it in my skincare routine daily, I have also tried adding it to my Lancôme liquid foundation, it actually helps to give a very healthy and natural glow on my face. This serum from Lancôme also helps to make my make up last throughout the day, and my face does not feels oily at the end of the day.

As I have a slightly oily T-zone and dry skin along my temples and jawlines, I am quite amazed to find my skin feeling less oily (T-zone) and less dry (jawlines) after using it for seven days.

Apart from smoother skin and more hydrated skin, I also notice my skin looking slightly more supple and brighter after two weeks. However, I personally feel that the lines on my forehead were not significantly reduced, which could be because two weeks is not enough to fully solve this deeply rooted problem that I’ve been having since my early 20s.

The light and non-sticky texture of the Advanced Génifique serum was easily absorbed into my skin, which makes it easy to layer on other skincare products. I apply this before makeup in the morning and find that it doesn’t interfere with my makeup at all.

After my first day using this, I woke up to supple skin the next day. I saw my skin start to glow after seven days, and by the end of two weeks, I can say that my skin tone looks more even and feels more elastic.

This is one of the best serums I have tried – it suits sensitive skin and works much faster than other products. I’ll definitely recommend this!

Leona, 27
Combination and sensitive skin

The Lancôme serum has an amazing texture that is better than most other serums I’ve tried, It has a fresh and lightweight formula that absorbs easily into skin, which makes it easy to layer on other serums and skincare products.

I really like that there is also a pleasant smell, which added some joy to my daily face care routine. I was also surprised that my lips have become softer (I have dry chapped lips) and the serum has helped my lips to heal.

I first noticed that my skin became more hydrated, and then eventually became brighter and more even. I even had multiple people comment that I look great after I started using this serum!

I enjoyed using this serum everyday and can say that this is certainly one of the best serums that I have tried. I will recommend this to my friends and family as I think it will be suitable for many age groups and skin types – it is not too thick or oily so it can be used for oily skin types, and is also hydrating enough for dry skin types.

Karyen, 29
Combination and sensitive skin

My experience using the Lancôme Advanced Génifique serum has been very positive. The application itself is a very soothing process, so I enjoy using it in my skincare routine before in the day and at night.

The serum made my skin look so much healthier after just two weeks of usage – it actually brightened my skin and evened my skin tone out so that I don’t have to apply foundation anymore! The results have been very noticeable (even since day one!) and I can safely say that this is one of the best serums that I have tried.

Jenxel, 30
Combination skin

I was first introduced by a wedding makeup artist to use the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum as an ampoule,  and my makeup looked radiant and lasted beautifully for the whole night. However, I stopped there because I was only 23 then and didn’t understood the importance of using the right product. Now seven years later, I finally understood why is this product highly raved for so long.

The most obvious difference that the serum has made to my skin would definitely be the lines near the inner corner of my under eyes – they have been reduced significantly, so I no longer use an eye cream to treat fine lines!

I always use the serum in the morning as a makeup primer or ampoule. After using for two weeks, I even get compliments that my makeup looks flawless! My skin has also become a lot softer and the fine lines around my nose has also improved as well.

This is a great product for any one experiencing their first signs of aging because prevention is more important than remove signs of aging. It is also perfect for anyone who just want to include or introduce anti-aging to their beauty routine!

Rachelle Martirez, 30
Dry skin

I’m impressed that this serum from Lancôme feels and works just like Hyaluronic Acid – it is quickly absorbed by skin and feels so soft and silky when you apply it with your hands.

I did not get noticeable results after one day, but I did see that my skin became brighter after about a week, and that my pigmentation became lighter as the days passed.

Personally I find that it is rather pricey, but this is definitely not an ordinary serum! I would say that it really helped my skin tone to become even and made me look younger in two weeks. It even helped me to become more confident as I no longer have to wear any makeup after one week!

An An Ong, 31
Combination-oily skin

This serum has a milky and gel-like texture that feels very smooth and melts into my skin. I think this texture is much better than most other serums that I have tried before.

I woke up the next day to softer and more hydrated skin. Seven days later, my face looks more radiant, fine lines are reduced and pores are smaller as well. After applying the serum for fourteen days, I saw that not only were my dark eye circles gone, most of my pores also looked less obvious! My skin feels firmer than usual and my makeup goes on much more smoothly.

I’m impressed by the instant results, and I love that this doesn’t feel oily or sticky, which most other products do. Just a small amount goes a long way with this one!

This serum is perfect for Singapore’s weather and works just as it claims. I’ve never loved a serum the moment I put in on my face, not until I tried the Advanced Génifique serum!

I’m very impressed with the product as the first impression that a sticky serum will never penetrate skin very well, but this turned out to be the most easily-absorbed serum I’ve ever used. Over the two weeks that I tried this out, I felt that my skin became increasingly smooth and plump, which makes makeup application a dream. I’ve also tried using this around my lips and it makes my lips look very plump too!

This serum has an amazing texture that glides very smoothly, is super absorbent, and does not feel sticky at all even after application.

The first day of usage gave me a more even skin tone, and as I continued to use it, I saw that my pores looked smaller and my skin actually looked smoother. My fine lines have also been reduced, and my face feels much firmer.

This is one of the best serums I have ever used, thanks to the noticeable difference in my skin that I am able to observe in such a short period of time!

Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum Review Woan Ting

Woan Ting, 35
Combination skin

I have used the previous version of this Youth Activating Serum a few years ago, for about one year. I remembered that it was very lightweight and helped in hydrated my skin. I was not disappointed to find that this upgraded version is just as lightweight and soothing as I remembered it to be.

I saw that my skin immediately became more supple and hydrated just one day of usage. There was once I pulled a late-nighter but my skin still didn’t look tired – in fact, it felt more firm! After fourteen days, it was obvious that the fine lines around my eyes became less obvious and there was even a radiance to my skin in the mornings.

I would recommend this product especially for people with dry/dehydrated and tired looking skin which requires a boost. I also like that it has a light scent which isn’t overpowering.

The only issue I had was when I layered my vitamin C serum on top of the Lancôme Genifique serum. There were small bumps which appeared on my cheek, but I did not experience issues when I layered it with my moisturisers, so perhaps vitamin C serums might not go well with the Lancôme Advanced Génifique serum.

Catherine Roxas, 31
Combination skin

I was hesitant if the product will work at first since I’ve been using a different serum. But to my surprise, it did work and I can really tell the difference between my previous brand.

I really like its non-sticky feel, scent, and how quickly my face absorbs it. My problem with serums is that it takes a long time for it to get absorbed, so I was impressed by how easily this one was soaked up by my skin. I saw that my wrinkles already became less obvious after just seven days, and that my skin was moisturised, smoother, and much firmer after two weeks.

Of all the serums I have tried, this one definitely has the best texture, so I’ll recommend this to my friends and family.

Stella, 31
Combination skin

The Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum has a watery texture that allows it to be spread easily. It does leave a sticky texture at first but soon gets absorbed, so it doesn’t feel heavy at all.

Throughout the two weeks of usage, I saw that my skin became more hydrated and smoother to touch. After one week, my face started to show a natural glow that made me look much healthier. My fine lines have also been reduced.

I really love that the product is lightweight and easily absorbed into skin. It has significantly improved my skin complexion after two weeks of use. I also appreciate that it does not cause any irritations to my sensitive skin. Despite the high price point, I will still purchase it as it is effective in improving skin conditions.

That being said, I did observe that it clogged my pores a bit, so I needed to cleanse my pores every two weeks due to buildup.

Kunali Parikh, 34
Combination skin

The Advanced Génifique serum felt very cooling and refreshing upon application – I really liked that it has a lightweight texture and does not feel greasy at all, especially in our humid weather.

I saw more hydrated and supple skin the next day, and less flaking of my skin after seven days of using this serum. After two weeks of consistent usage, there was completely no flakey skin nor white patches, as well as much more supple and firm skin.

I’m surprised by the noticeable results after just seven days that got even more obvious after two weeks. I love using this product to cool my skin, so I’ll definitely recommend this to my friends and family!

See and feel youthfully radiant skin in just 7 days.
