Lancôme is the High End, luxurious brand that i first discovered 26 years ago when my then boyfriend bought me their iconic Tresor perfume. From then on, i was hooked on this incredibly decedent luxurious French brand that epitomises femininity and beauty.
The house of Lancôme was created in 1935 when visionary Armand Petit jean had an ambition to diffuse French Spirit throughout the world. The Beauty world would never be the same again. That same year Lancôme launched 5 perfumes which cemented their name in the fragrance industry. Skincare followed the very next year and the rest, as they say, is history. Make up was launched in 1951 with the Oriental musk fragrance of Tresor making its debut in 1952. In 1990 a diamond shaped bottle of the perfume was created in celebration and it was this, a few years later, that became my introduction to the brand.
Many years later, they are still at the forefront of affordable luxury. Using science within nature 2009 saw the innovation of Genifique – Lancôme’s sparkle of pure creation! Today i am sharing two brand new products with you from the range.
This new formula youth activating eye cream targets the signs of fatigue and ageing. With its almost gel like consistency and light, fresh scent, it is a joy to use both morning and evening. This new cream-in-gel formula is derived with probiotic extracts that can reduce dark circles and puffiness, whilst adding a touch of luminosity which gives the eyes a more wide awake, youthful look. Add to this the fact that over time it also smooth’s out fine lines and this makes for an incredibly powerful eye cream.
The cream is absorbed quite quickly into the eye area and under eye area making the skin incredibly soft, smooth and very hydrated. You can use this over your upper and lower eye contour area, making sure to pay attention to any laughter lines. The cream is very cooling upon application and sits beautifully under make up. I am thoroughly enjoying using this at the moment.
Advanced Genifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Mask –
Introducing Lancôme’s first youth activating, instant illuminating under eye mask. I cannot lie, these are quite expensive but if they are within your budget, they are most definitely worth it. For me, these are the pick-me-up my tired eyes need before a special event. The week leading up to my sisters wedding was very emotional and my eyes were looking tired and puffy, on the morning of the wedding i applied these serum infused cellulose eye masks and relaxed for ten minutes.
They feel incredibly cooling and comforting on the skin. They do not slip or stick too tightly and are full of fabulous serum. Ten minutes later i peeled of the mask to reveal bright, light, beautiful under eyes that looked a lot less tired and stressed than they did before. If you take a look at my before and after photos below, you will notice the fine lines have smoothed away and my under eye area is really hydrated. These are brilliant and you can purchase them HERE
I have to admit to being a little addicted to both these products but especially the eye cream. It has made such a huge difference to my eyes. They look fresher, brighter, the lines have been totally smoothed out and they look so much more awake. I know this is a high end luxurious brand, but if you can afford to splurge or have a birthday coming up, i would love to point you in the direction of these.
Have you tried many Lancôme products? What are your favourites, i would love to know.
