Frenchly speaking…

Taken from ConsumerHealthDigest.comI always wonder how these products work and if they are really worth the money we spend on them.  It seems to me, after my adventures in retail. that you have to combine so many different products together to get a desired effect.  It can be costly and confusing.

 Genifique Overview

Genifique is a range of ‘youth-activating’ products manufactured by the well-established and reputable company Lancome. The Lancome consumer website provides information about their full line of skincare and cosmetics products but very little about each individual brand. However, being such a well-known company, they do provide good customer service and, while most of their products can be purchased in retail stores, Lancome offer a secure online ordering service.

The webpage for Genifique includes consumer reviews of the product, which are all very positive, and a brief outline of how the formula works. The Genifique range includes an eye cream, night cream, concentrated serum and the Genifique Youth Activating Cream Serum. When purchased directly from the manufacturer this latter product costs $84.00 for a 1 fl oz bottle. Lancome does accept returns on all its products but there is no time limit stated.

Genifique – Product Description


Unfortunately, Lancome does not supply any information about the ingredients in Genifique Cream Serum, only saying that it is a ‘hybrid’ of concentrated serum and deeply moisturizing cream. Some details are available from retail sites which list Bio-Lyst, Phystosphingosine and Hepes as its main active ingredients. It appears that the purpose of the formula is to instruct the body to start producing more growth proteins and boost the production of youth genes. In approximately 4 weeks, users should experience less visible signs of aging and softer, more ‘cushiony’ skin.

Genifique products are designed to work as part of a full routine, and it is not known how well just using one product in the range would work alone.

Genifique Advantages

  • Lancome is a reputable company
  • The product has received good consumer feedback
  • Product returns are accepted
  • The product website is professional
  • Genifique is available in retail stores

Genifique Drawbacks

  • Genifique is expensive
  • No ingredients are listed
  • No clinical trials performed on the formula are shown
  • Refund details are limited

Genifique – The Bottom Line

Despite the fact that the Genifique range of products are more expensive than similar brands, many customers will be willing to spend the money on a trusted and known brand. It would be helpful to know exactly what ingredients were in the product or be able to receive a free trial sample beforehand.

Aging is a completely natural process that happens to everyone at one time or another. Fortunately, there are several choices when it comes to quality anti-wrinkle creams that allow you to keep your youthful complexion and glow for years to come. To help you delay this as long as possible, you have to choose a wrinkle cream very carefully, since most creams are not really effective. To make it easy for you to choose the best anti-wrinkle cream, we have evaluated the top products on the market. Below are the best products on the market rated according to the effectiveness and safety of the ingredients. 


I don’t know if that is truly a word, but it represents what we are all trying to achieve.  Being perfect is a tall order.  Looking your best, however, is something that is achievable.  I am finding that any product that makes you feel pretty and you can see results is your “perfect” product.

Keep looking and trying things to find out what that product is and you will fell much better.  This serum really makes my skin “feel” better even if it wasn’t necessarily sick.  I have been using this now for a couple of months and what a difference it has made in the feel of my skin during the day.

It is a little pricey, but I use it every morning under my makeup and the smooth soft feeling lasts all day.  I am not trying to sell this to anyone, just suggesting trying it for a while and see if you feel the same way…~dbratt

Go away lines and freckles (age spots)…

Last May I started using Nerium AD Age-Defying Treatment.  The change in my skin the first 5 days was nothing less than miraculous!  My “freckles” and lines improved immediately.  The softness that if gives the skin leaves you feeling like you are actually doing something to make it better.

This product is something that you can feel good about using and actually see the change without having to use it for 6-9 months…




Welcome to my beauty blog…

I want to explore the world of beauty products…the good, the bad and of course, the ugly…

Feel free to comment on my posts and chime in with your beauty routines so that we can all tell our own story…


This is me at age 5…long before I knew makeup even existed.  Maybe a little foundation would have helped back then…but you know…

Today we live in an age of “natural” products unlike the days when I started wearing makeup.  In the days and weeks to come I want to explore the products that I use and see if they really do what they say that they can do!

It will be quite an adventure~
