Re: Lancome Skincare- Opinions Please

The best products in this line for skincare are a new line called Energie en Vie; lighter, less perfumed.

I tried and liked the Pearley, Smooth Lotion (Energie en Vie) which is hydrating. Makes a nice base for foundation.

I do not care for their fragrances and the Visionaire/Genifique treatment lines flare my rosacea. The Galatee cleanser is good for very dry skin; Absolue is their premier products @ $$.

Lancome mascaras are excellent!!! The lipsticks are better, in mho, than Estee Lauder-not as perfumed, good colors.

This may be a good opportunity to try some things and opt to purchase the Christmas gift w/color cosmetics or fragrances.

I think you're paying for advertising and packaging and not getting anything better than you can elsewhere. In fact, I think you CAN do better elsewhere -- for example, you can get excellent skincare from Paula's Choice that is not fragranced, that doesn't include irritants, is cruelty-free, and is moderately priced in comparison. There are other

companies as well.

 

 


 

I was going to say the above.  

 

I like anything Lancome makes as far as makeup.  For skincare I like PC.

L'Oreal Youth Code is a dupe for Genifique.

I use and love the Absolute Bx Daytime Moisturizer; magic under my foundation, hydrates beautifully....just love it. The scent isn't over the top and it hydrates like nothing else. It also plays very nicely with my SKINN products. The eyemakeup remover (the one you shake) is something I use off and on; no complaints.

You can check out reviews for Lancome & other brands at Beautypedia.  I love Paula's Choice products and have been using them since 1995.  Fragrance-free, no animal testing, no jar packaging, etc.

Re: Lancome Skincare- Opinions Please

To me Lancome skincare is way overpriced and hyped.  There is way too much fragrance and none of their cutting edge ingredients are actually proven to work like vitamin A (retinol products), AHA's and BHA's.  Also look at the amount of alcohol they use in their products.  I think they shine in the make-up department but fall way short on skincare.

The really heavy perfumes in all of their skincare products was the deal breaker for me years ago.

Tried for several months. Way too heavily scented and made me break out. No thank you.
