In-Depth Review

The new Génifique Youth Activating Cream Serum from Lancôme promises to bring youth back. According to the manufacturer, in lab tests, the active ingredients showed increased gene activity, and a higher production rate of skin proteins that are usually associated with youthful-looking skin.

Lancôme's GénifiqueYouth Activating Cream Serum is said to restore the youthfulness of skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Although Lancôme says that their product is backed by clinical studies, the data they provide on their website is vague and doesn’t link to any "hard" scientific evidence or reports. They briefly mention “youth proteins” and “gene activity” without specifically discussing which proteins or what genes, possibly making the skeptical consumer wonder how valid their evidence may be.

Overall, this product contains a few well-known wrinkle-fighting ingredients, so it's worth a look. If you would you like to compare it to similar products to make sure you’re getting the best possible deal, then, just head over to our anti-aging product comparison chart and see how this serum compares with the rest.
