My Beauty Favorites Week of July 27-August 1, 2015

My children are going back to school in a week and a half.  Even though summer is winding down for us, it is still blazing hot out!  And, I still need to use summer beauty products to treat my skin during the hot weather.

This week I am loving a anti-aging power serum, a hydrating body lotion, moisturizing lip balm and a fun travel fragrance bottle.

Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate
Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate

Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate ($78 for 1.0 oz; $105 for 1.7 oz; $135 for 2.5 oz.; $175 for 3.4 oz.) — an innovative serum that sinks in instantly — and quickly transforms your skin. The formula works day and night to target the 10 key signs of youth (texture, resiliency, elasticity, firmness, sagginess, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, even skin tone and clarity) and is clinically proven to offer noticeable results in just 7 days.

What I think: I have been using this serum for a short period of time, but I already see a difference in my skin.  After use, my skin’s texture is more even and glowy.  I am looking forward to continued use and to see improvements in other areas soon!
