Here’s my product review for L’Oreal’s Skin Genesis facial Serum Concentrate. Back in August, I requested a free sample and have since been using the product each night for two weeks. The product recently won Allure Magazine’s Best of Beauty Awards for Breakthrough in Skin Care.
Skin Genesis has a light scent, not flowery or medicinal and should not bother most people. The serum is watery in texture (much more so than Garnier’s Nutritioniste) but applies smoothly and spreads easily. A little goes a long way making this product a cost-efficient purchase. The serum soaks into your skin exceptionally well!
Must say, I LOVE the packaging on this line. Very simple, clean, and with a spa-like feel. Excellent for a drugstore brand.
As for ingredients- the active ingredient is Pro-Xylane that is said to strengthen skin cells. However, if you have skin that is sensitive to breakouts, this product may not be for you. Glycerin is the second ingredient in the Serum Concentrate and a known culprit for cloggin’ your pores. The third ingredient is Alcohol which may not help those of us with dry skin (whether year-round or just the winter). If either of these two categories fit your skin, I would strongly suggest trying a sample first.
L’Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment, Serum Concentrate can be found at Drugstore.com for $24.99. The product is sold in a 1.7 fl oz/50 ml pump.
