The concentrate is known and loved for its youth activating, skin rejuvenating and soothing effects and whether you already know and love the serum or are tempted to give it a try, we're here to let you in on a best kept beauty secret...
Okay, we're ready to spill the beauty beans. On ALL Lancome counters in Debenhams, you can receive a free Advanced Genifique sample. No beauty card needed, no purchase needed, simply ask to get. We'd love to tell you to not all rush for your nearest Debenhams at once, you might want to as these samples are only available until stocks last.
So, once you have your sample, you might be asking yourself the question - "now what?" We spoke to beauty expert Holly from Lancôme to get the low down on exactly how, why and what makes Advanced Génifique a skincare staple.
What skin type is Advanced Génifique best for?
Advanced Génifique is suitable for every woman: all ethnicities, ages, and every skin type - dry, combination/normal and oily.
What are the Probiotic Extracts in Advanced Génifique and what do they do for the skin?
Advanced Génifique contains two powerful probiotic extracts– Yeast and Bifobacterium. This powerful duo is scientifically proven to help strengthen the skins barrier, improve hydration and activate skins youthful radiance.
Is the product best to use day or night?
Both! You can use in the morning and evening after your cleansing routine, before your moisturiser.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Advanced Génifique is enriched with Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the Skins dermis; it plays an important role in moisturising the skin. This substance fills the space between the collagen and elastin fibers. It decreases in quantity and quality with age or with exposure to environmental factors, which causes the skin to dry out and wrinkle.
Hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Intended to fill the intercellular spaces and retain water in the skin, it contributes to a dense skin texture and rebound which is a characteristic of a beautiful quality of skin.
How do you properly apply the product?
Take your Advanced Génifique serum bottle and twist. It then has the perfect amount already in the pipette. Dispense the full amount into the palm of your hand.
Apply and press the product with your hands across the forehead, cheeks, and chin, down the neck, working from the centre towards the outside.
How much should you use each time?
The pipette is self-filling, and dispenses the perfect amount each time.
How long does it take to see results from using this serum?
First visible results in just 7 days. Your skin will look luminous with a youthful radiance and will feel younger, with a velvety – soft finish.
