Now that I'm getting to mid thirties I thought maybe it was time to re-jig my beauty routine. I wonder whether I should apply a serum in the morning pre - moisturiser ?? I've read good reviews re Lancôme Genefique but have also read that L' oreal Youth Code (much cheaper) is practically the same product?? Any advice on this or do you swear by something different altogether??
I think they're a complete waste of money and that all they do is con you into buying two products instead of one. The same goes for primers, eye creams, neck creams and exfoliators. I do moisturise and use sunscreen but the only anti-ageing tricks I swear by are not smoking or sunbathing.
Sorry if that's not the advice you were hoping for - it's just my opinion .
I'm 38, I swear by Lancome Genifique by day and my absolute amazeballs product is Lancome visionaire!!! It's so good I can't champion it enough. I tried l'oreal youth code and it broke my skin out in terrible spots. The Lancome products are expensive but seriously worth the money. I have very dry skin and using the visionaire at night has made my pores all but disappear. The genifique has left my skin feeling subtle and smooth. I recommend both.
