10 May Skincare Review, Before/After Photos: Lancome Génifique Youth Activating Second Skin Mask – Best Plumper, Smoother In One Application
Exclusively from Asia, Lancôme introduces the new Génifique Youth Activating Second Skin Mask ($80.00). According to the manufacturers, it takes only a single application to “see more radiant, luminous and smoother skin.”
Each mask contains the same amount of product, as half of a 1 oz. bottle of Génifique Concentrate. Combining Lancôme‘s patented Génifique complex and expertise in bio-cellulose technology, Lancôme claims this mask “treats your skin to a new kind of indulgence.”
Because the pre-cut mask adheres to the contours of your face, it provides a “harmonious and intense infusion of ingredients.” The recommended usage for this product is twice a week, on a cleansed face, before your usual beauty routine. After one application, Lancôme promises skin will look “as if lit from within. Cushiony soft and smooth.”
After three weeks, they claim you will experience “visibly more radiant, refined and re-plumped skin.” I was only given a single mask to sample, so I can only report on a single usage. The mask was easy-to-apply; the pre-cut template (it looked a bit like a ghost mask for Halloween!) was simple to attach right to my face, and it stayed on easily for the requisite 20-minutes.
When I peeled it off, it left a colorless but rich serum-like residue on my skin, which I rubbed in. Afterwards, my skin looked great: texture noticeably improved and smoother. This one’s pricey, but worth it! And since you get results after a single application, I would recommend using it once a month or so — which ought not to break the bank.
