L'Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment
I love what L’Oreal has done with color cosmetics, but had never used any of their skincare before. In the end, I was very impressed with this serum. I put it on before I put on my moisturizer and makeup in the morning and it made my skin feel like silk! It also allowed my makeup to go on more smoothly and kept the drier parts of my skin nice and moist. I dare say it almost gave me an airbrushed look once my makeup was on. I can breakout occasionally in my t-zone, but this product didn’t cause any irritation or oily patches. It’s a pricier drug store item, but definitely worth it (for a very good product) with the added advantage that a little (just two pumps or so) was needed for my entire face and neck, so a little goes a long way. As the weeks went on, I found that this gave me a smoother and clearer complexion. The serum goes on nicely, sinks right in. It does have a slight floral smell to me, but it didn’t last long. It absorbed quickly without a greasy or heavy feel. My skin looked "fresher" when I used this. I also liked the pump bottle that it comes in. It made it easy to pump out just the right amount, and was small enough for a travel bag. Note: When I didn’t have any hand cream handy I rubbed a little of the serum on my hands and after about five minutes, my skin was super baby soft!

It was not greasy, and didn’t flake or ball up in the heat. I also found it very moisturizing for my drier areas of my face and small lines around my eyes, and even my legs and elbows. The tone and texture of my skin was fantastic after using this daily! I used this successfully on both my face and my body and I did not experience any irritation or break outs. For the face, it does leave a sheen however, so if you want a more matte look, then it will be necessary to blot it and then apply a little pressed or loose powder over it. I usually wore this during a recent vacation without much other makeup and didn’t mind the sheen. I also liked that the Sunblock didn’t leave a sticky or grayish cast to my skin (which I hate!). It was definitely water resistant, but after going in and out of the water several times I did reapply as most experts say is necessary. However, when I was home and used it for everyday wear I found that even through very hot days it stayed put and was effective. A little goes a long way with this product which also makes it a great buy.
What a decadent treat for my skin! This thick, hydrating cream made my skin feel extremely soft & supple in the morning, after I had applied before bed. This cream is extremely thick, so I only need a small amount each time. ... What a decadent treat for my skin! This thick, hydrating cream made my skin feel extremely soft & supple in the morning, after I had applied before bed. This cream is extremely thick, so I only need a small amount each time. Note: Start with less and add more if you need it, as I noticed that when I put too much on at first it actually made my skin greasy. It’s also very important that you warm it up in your hands before you apply it or else it won't spread on the skin. I also loved the fragrance, which was a very unique tea type of scent (like Earl Grey!). The results of using this week after week were just fantastic. I found that it gave my skin the type of intense hydration it needed, while also plumping and soothing my skin. I also got a lovely glow to my skin, and did not irritate my more oily parts in the t zone. I looked forward to my nightly cleansing ritual because I felt like I was really pampering myself with this crème. Only a tiny bit of Creme Ancienne is needed, so this luxury product really does pay for itself as it will last for at least 6 - 8+ months, if not more. On drier/colder days I would also use this as a day cream under my makeup and despite its really thick texture, it soaked in beautifully. This is the most amazing skin care product that Fresh has ever created.

After using this for several weeks, my skin, which had previously looked a little dull and had some creases and fine-lines, all but disappeared. In particular I saw a significant decrease in the lines around my mouth and eyes. The other benefits of using the Skin Genesis were much more even-toned and soft skin. The texture is smooth, light and silky and the smell is very pleasant. I also love that I got SPF protection without any sticky or filmy feel, which can sometimes happen in products with SPF in them. My skin was moisturized all day and I didn’t experience any breakouts. I would love to have this lotion for use in the summer months with a much higher SPF – perhaps it’s in the works!” G.L. Note: This moisturizer worked best with normal to dry skins. Those of you with VERY dry skin may not get enough moisture with this product.
