Lancome Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Mask Review
I am Yoshiko Carter and I am someone you can trust if you are a woman looking for a product that works for your skin. I am from Singapore, I have tried hundreds of products, and I am always on the lookout for more new products day in day out. I am a woman just like you and so I understand the ordeal you have to go through to get your hands on the right product. I have gone through the same and that’s why I decided to become a cosmetic product reviewer. While I relate with women all around the world, my personal bias is a little bit towards Singaporean women i.e. helping them get the best of the skincare world.
I am very excited about the product that I am going to talk about today. It is not your everyday lotion, cream, or powder. It is something that worked like magic for me, and I am not using the word magic here only to create excitement. This product really does work like magic and I am sure you will be forced to say the same when you use it. Let me talk in detail about it so you know if this mask is something that can work for your skin as well.
My Online Search for a Hydrating Mask
Don’t get me wrong, but I have never been the biggest fan of creams and lotions. They are great products and even I have them in my collection of cosmetics, but they have never been my favorite. I always want something that works instantly and gives me the results that I want. That’s where this Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Mask from Lancome comes in. I have not seen a product that works as fast as it does. Also, I have to say that it is also the best face mask that I have ever tried, and I can tell you for sure that I have tried hundreds of them.
I was searching through online stores to find a unique mask for my face. I had to attend a gathering of reviewers like me in Singapore and I wanted to look my best that day. I could not rely on cream because they don’t work fast enough for me. I also have to tell you that I have a great skin but I wanted to look special. You understand the pressure when you are among hundreds of other reviewers like yourself and the products that we review happen to be skincare products.
I stumbled upon this hydrogel mask from Lancome at quite a few online Singaporean cosmetic websites. I also read the reviews of the customers who had tried it. Most of the reviews were quite positive. There were a few negative reviews as well but their number was so small compared to the good ones that I had to give this mask a try without letting my fears take over.
What Is Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Mask?
So, before we talk about my personal experience with this mask, let me tell you what exactly it is. Many of you must already be aware of how face masks work but many women are still new to these products. At the same time, you have to realize that it is not one of your regular marks that you have to scrub or rub on your face. This is something completely different, so I would recommend you to read further even if you have used face masks before.
This mask is what you would truly call a mask i.e. it is a thin film that you cover your face with. From the packet that’s available on Singaporean stores, you will get at least seven of these masks. Each mask weighs around 28 grams. Once removed, you have to cover your face with the mask and leave it on for some time. The hydrogel mask will make your skin start looking fresh, plump, and rejuvenated like the skin of a baby. The most amazing thing is that you will get the results instantly. That’s something that I love the most and preach to others as well.
My First Application of Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Mask from Lancome
Of course, my first use of the mask was not completely free of all doubts and fears. There was a voice in my head that kept telling me to not try it. I did not want to ruin my face a couple of days before the gathering of the reviewers. However, I looked at the product and its ingredients thoroughly to know that nothing wrong was going to happen. What is it? It is just a hydrogel mask that you apply on your face to moisturize, hydrate, and rejuvenate it. There are no weird chemicals, colors, and ingredients in it. It is a simple product with simple application.
I applied the mask exactly according to the instructions that were mentioned with the product online. Luckily, every website that had the product had the instructions clearly stated with it. There was no rocket science in applying this mask to the face so everything was pretty straightforward. Let me explain the exact procedure of how you can apply this mask to your face.
How to Use the Lancome Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Mask
Here are the steps that you will have to follow to apply the mask on your face and get the best results in no time.
- Wash your face and thoroughly clean it before you apply the mask
- Open the packaging of the mask
- Inside the package, you will see seven different masks
- The masks are folded inside the packet so you will have to unfold the one that you want to use
- After you have unfolded one of the masks, you will notice that there is a thin sheet on it on one side – remove this sheet
- After removing the sheet, you will notice that this surface is has a gel on it – this gel side will go on your face
- Place the mask on your face
- Now peel a very thin sheet on the other side of the mask with your fingers
- Stay still for about half an hour and let the mask melt on your face
- When you remove the mask after 30 minutes, you will notice a liquid on your face
- This is the serum that your skin will absorb without any efforts so do not touch it
Now that the serum has disappeared, the procedure is complete and you can notice the glow on your face.
What Effect You Will Feel after the Application
Okay, the most important question that needs to be answered here is what effect you will feel on your face when you apply the mask. Let me be as clear and honest here as possible because I am telling you everything from experience. The first thing you feel is a strong force inside your skin. You feel as though your skin has become tight. And that’s true because the mask does make your skin plump. At the same time, when you touch your face, you can notice that your skin is smoother and more gentle than ever.
The best thing is that the mask does not leave any residue on your face. You don’t get the tacky feeling that you get from other sticky masks. Last but not least, you will notice additional radiance on your face when you apply this mask.
If you want the best and long-lasting results, I will say that you should apply at least two of these masks on your face almost every week. You will start noticing your skin becoming suppler, tighter, radiant, and shinier than it ever was.
Who Can Use the Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Mask
I have done my research online and talked to the people I meet on a daily basis. Based on my experience and from the online reviews, you can use this mask no matter what age or skin type you are. In fact, even your ethnicity does not matter because this mask is going to work like magic for you. Just use it the right way and you will notice your skin getting shinier, radiant, and stronger with time.
Best Times to Use Lancome Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Mask
There are many instances when you can use this mask to get the best results. If you are after long lasting results like me, you should apply it before sleeping at night and follow a regular regime to get the best results. If you just want to be ready for a party, you can apply the mask for 10 minutes before you put on your favorite makeup items. You can also apply the mask every morning before leaving for office to look fresh, young, and radiant all day long.
My Final Verdict on Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Mask from Lancome
I think it is a great product from the company. It might sound a bit pricey to some women but if you look at the benefits, you will forget about the price. Not to mention, it is one of the easiest ways to look radiant and glowing all day long. For me, it was worth every penny spent and this mask from Lancome is in the list of my favorite items that have chosen to keep using forever.
