Genifique comes in a light silver box explaining that it "create[s] a more youthful looking skin by promoting the production of proteins that are characteristic of young skin". As for the foremost results, Lancome commonly mentions the "re-plump[ing]" of skin with "refined and re-illuminated" complexion.
It comes in an white opaque liquid form which is slightly thicker than Tonique Comfort (click here for the review) but not so thick for a serum. With half a pea-sized drop of Genifique, it can cover 4/5 of one's palm. Therefore, it only requires about two full drops from the pipette for the entire face.
As rolled onto the skin, it instantly gives a smooth and even texture and soaks into the surface within 2-30 seconds or so, depending on one's skin type. Regardless of the type, the result is jaw-dropping: even, plumped and smooth surface.
There seems to be no improvement of the pore sizes, spots, and wrinkles.
It smells like a cheap-scented glue with a hint of almost unrecognizable peach scent but there is definitely a stronger scent that overpowers the pleasant scent. Overall, it's not an enjoyable scent.
Would I Recommend This Product?
Despite harsh criticisms it receives, I'm thoroughly enjoying this product. Although I didn't purchase Visionnare, I accompany Genifique with Tonique Comfort and Bienfait Aqua Vital Continuous Infusing Moisturizer. As for the result, I'm so satisfied with the combination that Biotherm Aquasource is not a part of my skincare anymore (although I praised so much about it). After my second container, I don't have any plan to make the next purchase because I love the feel of the instant absorption of moisture.
Overall, this was a great investment for me.
