Lancôme promises that using Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Night Lifting and Firming Night Cream ($112.00) and Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Lifting and Firming Cream with SPF 15 ($92.00; pictured above) in tandem for four weeks will lift, firm and tighten the skin.
They also claim that the Multi-Action cream is “enriched with Multi-Tension Technology” and that in one week, skin will feel firmer and denser; in four weeks, “all facial zones are visibly tightened and skin looks visibly younger.”
Multi-Action night cream is infused with the same Multi-Tension Technology, and promises the same results (Lancôme also recommends the eye cream and the makeup from this line, but I did not try them this round).
Those of you who have read my previous reviews know that I am a bit of skeptic when it comes to extravagant claims about younger looking skin, so I approached this pair with my usual caution.
Smelling faintly of roses, the day cream had a buttery texture and was a tad gummy when I applied it. The pale-pink night cream, which was more silky than buttery, had the same tacky quality. Uh-oh! I don’t like tacky/sticky/gummy on my face.
But, I am happy to report that after four weeks of use, I really did notice a visible tightening and lifting effect. It was not dramatic, like Botox, but I could see it: I looked rested, refreshed and perkier.
With results like these, I will put up with the slightly sticky texture — it’s worth it! And though these two creams are expensive, again, I think they are worth the higher price. One tiny gripe: I wish the day cream had a higher SPF (it’s only 15, and I prefer at least 30), but I just used another higher SPF product on top of it.
