So I finally embraced the side of me that is obsessed with beauty and skincare. Literally the next day, Influenster, Lancome and Sephora had sent me Lancome products to try for free and I get to tell y’all about them. Thank you!
What I received complimentary for testing purposes:
Oh my gosh. My sister let me use her’s during the holidays and it made my skin so pretty in just like two days. It’s a serum, so you apply before your regular skincare routine. It’is anti-aging to reveal smoother, more radiant skin. I’ve only been using it for two weeks and I feel I can tell a difference in the appearance of my skin and I’ve been abusing my skin, so the fact it’s still working on me under not excellent cirucmstances? FANTASTIC. The product has so many clinical results, and what I feel I’ve seen so far is improvement in Texture and Elasticity, especially my cheeks. I definitely feel that my foundation has been going on much more smoothly as well. It’s great for all skin types and I personally think a great item to add to your regimen if you’re in your late 20’s and up. Hydrating. Boosting. Radiance. Forever young? Sign me up. Be sure to apply this after you cleanse your skin, the serum works best that way. Also, it has a convenient self-loading dropper so all you need is one syringe full of the serum. It also clicks into place so it’s good for travel.
Overall thoughts: I’m so happy to finally be able to try this! I think if I follow and continue to use the serum properly, in addition to great diet, hydration and sleep, I’ll see maximum results. While using this product I had kind of gone wild with my diet (consuming tons of fried food, gluten and alcohol) and saw a major difference in my skin in the worst kind of way (much more texture, blemishes on my forehead especially). I’m back on track starting May 12 and am looking forward to seeing even more results in my skin. With that being said, I would like to share final results once the bottle is finished. I’m going o be looking for more Radiance, Clarity and Even Skin Tone as I’ve been suffering from a lot of redness. Stay tuned!
This is a firming and dark spot correcting moisturizer which claims to lift, firm and reduce appearance of fine lines and dark spots. I’ve only been using this for two weeks off and on, I was shooting and didn’t want to try anything new that might aggravate my skin. Good news: it didn’t! It has definitely helped brighten my skin. The first time I put this on, I let it dry down to grab my coffee. Not only does it dry down quickly… I could FEEL it working. I had never tried an firming SPF moisturizer, and I could feel my face literally absorbing it. It wasn’t a tingle, or a warmth, but I could feel my skin almost tighten, if that makes sense.
Overall thoughts: I am definitely using this all summer. It lightens, brightens, protects and hydrates? Those check all the boxes for me. And given that I almost always have had a horrible reaction to face sunscreens (I won’t name names), this was soothing and had no longterm negative effects. So happy this product works for me! <3 Oh— and one pump is enough to cover your whole face and has Lancome’s light signature scent which is not aggravating. Also, be sure to keep any moisturizer with SPF away from your eye area. The tiniest amount can slip into the eye if you apply it too close to your eyes, so just be careful in general.
Honestly, this skin tint is BEAUTIFUL. It absolutely delivers! It is so lightweight on the skin, buildable, breathable, and looks like skin. It feels really comfortable on the skin, super hydrating and I think that has to do with the Hyalauronic Acid. It gives sheer to medium coverage and is meant for the person who wants a little evening out but doesn’t want to look like they’re wearing makeup. It has Hyalauronic acid to lock in moisture into your skin, vegetal glycerine which is listed as a moisture magnet (super hydrating!) so it attracts moisture to the skin, and has Moringa Seed Extract, which is listed to act as a defense against oxidation and pollution. Definitely something we need if you’re in a big city, ahem, Los Angeles, Houston, NYC, ETC. HYDRATE! RADIANCE! SUN PROTECTION! #SKINFEELSGOOD
Overall thoughts: I applied this one day with my fingertips, one pump and it was really really light, didn’t look like I was wearing anything, but still evened out. I did an IG live one day with it and used two pumps and a foundation buffing brush and it was so flawless!! Two pumps gives really nice, full (for me) coverage. My full coverage is like, a normal person’s medium. I also personally liked setting it with a sheer pearl powder if I was going out at night. If you want your skin to look rested, plump (in the best way!), hydrated and dewy, this is definitely a great option for you!! It’s not a foundation or a tinted moisturizer, but a skin tint. Keep that in mind. So still hydrate before. I’ve liked combining it with the Renergie Lift Multi-Action. Such a great option for a teen and great to keep in your kit! I’m definitely using this as much as possible for the summer! :D
I also received a really pretty Prismatic Plump lip gloss in the shade Effervescent. It has a cool tingly sensation, not uncomfortable at all. Just sheer, pretty, with a microfine sparkle for a holograph effect. The Effervescence has a cool blue tint to it. It doesn’t feel sticky, is slick and quite comfortable. I personally don’t care for gloss in general. I prefer a more buttery lip conditioner, balm or lipstick, but this was a nice treat and change up! It will definitely be pretty over a cool tone lipstick.
Overall thoughts: Pretty texture and formula but am looking forward to seeing more shades for my personal style and complection. I believe this product is a Sephora exclusive, as I couldn't find it on the Lancome website.
Thank you so much to Lancome, Sephora and Influenster for sending me these products free/complimentary for testing purposes for the #Genefique and #SkinFeelsGood #Contest #Campaign. The products work and are amazing! Thank you so much! #Gratitude The photo above is NO filter, just my gorgeous three skincare items all layered! So pretty and fresh!
I also made it super easy, all of the links and images are clickable and will take you directly to the Sephora website so you can purchase. <3
