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.

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 would not think so as it is meant for anti aging.

I have not experienced that problem. In my mind, this product simply primes the face for moisturizer it does not "treat" the skin.

Yes, this stuff is fantastic! I will be starting my third bottle, and will always use this product. My skin does not look 55 years old. This has helped with lines, discoloration, hyper-pigmented spots from menopause,a nd acne scars. I highly endorse this product.

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.

answer 2
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!

Question
Do I need to use serum after Genifique?
I've seen in other places say that Genifique is to help our skin absorbs skin care product better so you need to your another serum after Genifique. Is that true?

I do not use another serum after applying Genifique. I sometimes layer 2 moisturizers over it, but this serum is the only serum I use.

answer 2
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.

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?

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.

I have never used that product, but I swear by this one! Dark spots disappear, skin firms up, and wrinkles not only stop getting worse, they diminish.
