Lancôme Génifique Yeux│Review

Project Pan 12 Fall 2016
Thanks to my collaborators in this Project Pan, ladies Stashy (StashMatters), Jodi (ABrashAttitude) and Chanelle (Chanelle Hayley), I didn’t give up on Lancôme Génifique Yeux eye cream! To be honest, I was not impressed one bit after the first week but now that this product is finished, I’m missing it like crazy.

Lancôme Génifique Yeux Review

The claims:

What it is:
An advanced antiaging complex that helps create younger-looking, brighter eyes.What it is formulated to do:
This unique gel-cream leaves the eye contour velvety to the touch. Dark circles and signs of fatigue fade as the eye area is infused with life and takes on a fresh, luminous appearance. Discover the skin you were born to have with the ultimate age-defying solution.

Availability:

At Sephora, major drugstores and big department stores: $67US ($83Cnd) for 0.5oz

Pros:

♥ The gel-type texture is very enjoyable to use (fresh around the eye),

♥ Ultra moisturizing,

♥ Brightens the eye area and with time, it has a tightening effect,

♥ Depuffs around my eyes.

Lancôme Génifique Yeux Review

Cons:

♥ I can’t use it in the morning since it disturbs my eye makeup and concealer.

♥Pricey (This item should be bought when there is a gift-with-purchase offer – just saying!)

Will I repurchase:  Yes! This is by far the best eye cream I’ve tried this year.
Note: I’ve seen this eye cream available on the 100 points perk at Sephora! Stock up if possible… A deluxe size sample will last you 2 months.

Project Recap…

This was a great week since I’ve finished three products: Cake’s Body Lotion, this Lancôme Génifique Yeux and Ole Henriksen’s Scrub (next week review). On the other hand, I always forget to use my Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (week 11) and the Josie Maran Hair Serum (week 8). Each week it’s the same story so, large probabilities that those two will still be full (or close to) after this Project. But, on the other hand, thank God for this PP12, I’ll be able to finish the majority of my featured products! Any self proclaimed makeup and skincare addict would be glad to empty 8-9 old products, it now makes some spaces available for new products to get in, just in time for the VIB sale!!! This is AWESOME.

Bio-Oil ✰ Project Pan 12 Fall 2016

Project Pan 12 Fall 2016

Welcome to Week 4 (already 1 month, unbelievable how time flies) of our Project Pan 12 Fall 2016 Edition. As usual, the knowledgeable Stashy (StashMatters), the cruelty-free Queen Jodi (ABrashAttitude) and the lovely Chanelle (Chanelle Hayley) are also collaborating in this project!

This week’s feature product is Bio-Oil PurCellin Oil! Used it continuously for the last 4 weeks for body and face, but with very different outcomes …

Bio Oil Review

Availability:

Nearly every drugstores and big retail chains

Pros:

♥ Easy to find,

♥  Very moisturizing,

♥ Very mild and delicate scent.

Bio Oil Review

Cons:

♥ Broke me out the two times I’ve applied it on my face,

♥ The “supposed breakthrough ingredient”, known as PurCellin oil, is derived from ducks (it’s the substance ducks secrete to keep their feathers waterproof – gross)!!

♥ Take at least half an hour to dry.

♥♥ Update: The last two days, I’ve had some allergic reactions with this product. I’ve seen some small bumps on my skin, and I’ve had some itchiness all over my body !

Note: Unfortunately, since it broke me out in my first week, I can’t validate the company advertised claim that this oil is good for uneven skin tone and is anti-aging.

Will I repurchase? NEVER (A Huge NO). Allergic reactions added with pimples and acne on my skin = a new oil, great for anti-aging and to moisturize my garbage bags…

Project Recap…

I was certain that at the end of September, I would have finish a couple of products, but I was wrong… I’m really surprised at how long it takes to actually finish products. Oh! well at the end of October, I should have emptied at least half of my eleven products (wishful thinking!), since one has been emptied in my garbage can😜…

Paula’s Choice Resist Skin Firming Line Minimizer ❥ Review

Paula's Choice Resist Skin Firming Line Minimizer Review

Despite my overwhelming makeup collection, there is a skincare brand that I’ve been dying to try for the longest time. Thru my daily blog readings and Youtube watching, I heard only great things about Paula’s Choice products. As I don’t have the chance to find them in my specialty boutiques, I was ecstatic to finally try their new skin firming formula.

When it comes to skin care products, I tend to proceed differently than normal. When I review a lipstick or palette, it’s a week of trials and voila.. but for this particular product, I’ve been using this treatment religiously for the last 3 months and I couldn’t be happier with the results …

♥ Paula’s Choice is Cruelty-Free 

♥ When the brand states that it’s fast drying, it really is. Don’t we ate creams, serums or oils that seems to just sit on top of our skin and it mostly benefits our pillow case!

♥ As I venture into unknown territories (meaning trying new products), my main concern is always how my skin will react to new formulas. Having problems with acne years ago, I am always fearful of breakouts. After such a long testing period with Paula’s Choice “Skin Firming Line Minimizer”, I’m more than happy to report No Breakout !

♥ I adore the hygienic packaging that prevents any waste of product. Since it’s a dropper, you only take what you need and that’s it…

Paula's Choice Resist Skin Firming Line Minimizer Review

This product is Fragrance-Free & very Lightweight. I tend to stay very far away from formulas that contain fragrances, as it tends to irritate my skin.

Paula's Choice Resist Skin Firming Line Minimizer Review

♥ Since the brand suggests to massage the product into targeted areas i.e. wrinkles or expression lines, 0.05oz will last you a long time (after 3 months, I still have a ton of product left).

♥ Niacinamide is one of my favorite ingredient. Like I noted earlier, I have acne-prone skin and use retinoid in my daily skincare routine. In their product descriptions, Paula’s Choice even states that Niacinamide pairs up really well with any type of retinols. After adding in this product into my routine, my face is surprisingly clearer and hyperpigmentation has diminished. My overall skin tone is more bright and even, and my wrinkles are attenuated. The best part is no side effects for such a high niacinamide concentration!

Nothing ...

Paula's Choice Resist Skin Firming Line Minimizer Review

Note (1)I would advise to take special care with the product. Not that it looks fragile,  but I surely don’t want to test the end-piece’s resistance 😉.

Note (2):  It’s not Botox or Fillers, so this is not a miracle product that will erase crow’s feet or frown lines. In fact, no cream that I know have that kind of result! 

Note (3): Always apply sunscreen when using retinoid products.

Paula's Choice Resist6

No skincare treatment is miraculous, but I’m positive that the ingredients in this product are super beneficial in the long run and used in conjunction with a retinol product, it’s a match made in heaven. My wrinkles certainly aren’t gone, but they are definitely less noticeable.

My skin looks different, better, glowing, healthy. As I already stated, this treatment does wonders: my face feels good, my skin looks fresher, and small imperfections are slowly disappearing. The product itself is a charm to use:  it absorbs quickly, it leaves zero residue, as it takes just small amount to cover those sensitive areas, it will last an eternity (minus a few years), and to this date, still no side effect to report! Considering the results and compared with some pricier products, this one gives you a great value for money.

If you’re thinking of adding a skin treatment for your fine lines and small wrinkles, this product will surely do the trick. If you still have your baby skin (lucky you!) and wondering how to keep your epidermis as young,  I really think that this product could slow down the aging process.  

I really love this formula and strongly suggest to just go for it. I doubt you’ll regret it.

Thanks for stopping by my beauties xxx
