I am only 25 and I use this skincare product. I find that prevention is the best thing you can do to keep your skin in good shape. I am constantly using skincare products marketed towards older women. I don't think age matters. You can apply any of your other typical skincare products after you apply this serum (night cream, eye cream, etc.) Serums are actually meant to help your skin more readily absorb your other skincare products, making them ultimately more effective.

YES! i am about to turn 21 and i use Genefique under my Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders set. I believe Genefique works in harmony with your other products and because it is almost gel-like you will most likely need a moisturizer. The best thing to do is get an in-store sample and see how your skin reacts.

You can apply lotion over top of this but I don't know why you would use it. It's aimed at women over 35 to fight wrinkles.

Question
How do I use it?
I received a free sample and despite looking the product up online, still have no idea how to use it. Is it like a soap? A lotion? Do I apply it in between those stages?

You use it after cleansing, on bare, clean skin. You only need the tiniest amount. 1 or 2 drops should be sufficient to cover your face and neck. You can apply your night cream, eye cream or other skincare products after applying.

This is a serum - which has intense anti aging agents that penetrate deep in your skin because the molecules are smaller than say a moisturizer that stays on top of your skin. Apply this day or night after you wash your face then you can add your moisturizer, eye cream, foundation, etc.

I use it after my cleanser, before a moisturizer at night. If I am using an eye cream or something else that it out of the norm, I use that (the additional product) after the Lancome serum as well.

answer 1
Absolutely not. The amount of alcohol (alcohol denat) in this product causes free radical damage and breaks down collagen. The amount of irritation this causes under the skins surface will impair healing of any discolorations and it will take that much longer for those pesky red marks to fade. A better option is daily use of a sunscreen and an AHA or BHA exfoliant.

I use this serum right after washing my face. Then using my favorite SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. Next I put SK-II Cellumination Aurabright Illuminating Essence, and lastly use moisturizing cream in the morning, or night cream before going to bed. My skin condition is really good. Though my skin type is combination any part is not too oily or too dry.

I don't think so. Personally, I use about a teaspoon of table sugar mixed with my normal cleanser every night before I apply my night cream and serum, and I did the same with the Genifique serum. I think exfoliating regularly helps your skin absorb products more readily (and I do it with sugar because I'm cheap). I wouldn't waste your money on another serum, Genifique is fantastic on its own.

You should avoid use this directly on your face and then rub with your finger, since this will be absorbed very fast, you will need lots of them if you do it that way. The correct way to do this is use 3-4 drops of the serum on your palm. Then put two hands together, warm it for 5 seconds, it will be easier for the skin to absorb it. Then use one fingertip to tap the serum evenly all over your face. After that, clench your fists together, use the part where you thumb and index finger curled together. Gently rub your face with that part. This way you are massaging the serum into your face without any waste.

I'm not as happy with this as I was with the old formula, which really improved my skin. I bought a bottle of the advance formula about 6 weeks ago and, yes, it seems to be working less now than when I first got it.

Yep this happened to me. I noticed an improvement and then a decline in my skin (went from super dry, to awesome supple and then to super oily). I have stopped using this product and now I'm at a normal state which is better than super oily or super dry!
