My Lancôme journey

Wednesday, 6 May 2015

My journey began with a very high expectation coupled with excitement…
This high-end serum got my office talking (men included) as I went around demonstrating a miracle in a midnight blue bottle.

Lancôme has sold to us a dream in a bottle, claiming that this heavily advertised serum is “more than a wrinkle corrector” as it aims to address concerns of large pores, marks, and uneven skin tone. The claims are enticing and made me curious. With a skin that needed a miracle, I dedicated a month committed to its daily use.

When I first applied this product, I thought my skin looked great! Even when I woke up the next day, I thought my skin looked clearer and more luminous. However, I wanted to see the unevenness gone more than I wanted to see just “great” skin. It works like a primer because it smooths over the skin (it must be the silicone in it) and includes mica, which illuminates skin.

This has a silky texture, just like most serums, and of course has a slight fragrance – I like that.

Target Areas:
– Forehead and around the mouth > uneven tone
– Cheeks > large pores

– Silky texture makes skin look smooth, while the mica adds subtle radiance (even though shine is not skincare)
– Effectively moisturizes thus no need to supplement with a moisturizer
– Lighter skin tone
– Smaller pores.

– Expensive
– It took a while to see impressive results.
