Product Review: L'Oréal Skin Genesis

I have sampled the Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate and Daily Moisturizer Oil-Free Lotion from L'Oréal Skin Genesis. Skin Genesis is a new generation of skincare for healthy, younger-looking skin.

L'Oréal Research has developed patented Pro-Xylane™ extracted from the beech wood plant. Pro-Xylane™ is a naturally-derived molecule that can penetrate the skin's surface layers. Combined with Hyaluronic Acid, the complex strengthens the cells, reignites cell activity, and maintain the strength of the skin layer by layer for smooth-textured and even-toned skin.

Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate
Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate is my favorite of these two products. The crystal clear Serum Concentrate has a gel texture and a light floral scent. It is lightweight and non-greasy. After gently applying it over the face, I can feel the serum is absorbed into the skin quickly. What I love about it is it leaves the face a thoroughly clean feeling and residue free.

Daily Moisturizer Oil-Free Lotion
Daily Moisturizer Oil-free Lotion has a moisturizer consistency. It is kept the same slight floral fragrance with the Serum Concentrate. The lotion contains micro-shimmer. The shimmer gives the complexion a subtle glow instantly. Even though this lotion is supposedly oil-free, in the warm weather like the summer, it stills feel slightly oily on my face.

I am not impressed with the application of the lotion. Although the lotion has a light texture, it does not offer a smooth massage. It is easier to smooth over the skin softly with small circular movements. Giving the face a massage with bigger circular motions, however, generates little tiny flakes. I have to give up using it at daytime, otherwise the foundation cannot go on well on top of the lotion.

After using L'Oréal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate and Daily Moisturizer Oil-Free Lotion for a month, I found my face feels softer and tighter. It does even skin's tone, and deliver a healthy-looking radiance. The fine lines have been slightly reduced, but not dramatically. For dry skin like mine, Daily Moisturizer Oil-Free Lotion delivers adequate moisture in the summer time, but it probably wouldn't provide enough moisture in the winter.
