Askmewhats Report: Lancome's Genifique Event

(thanks to the commenter for clarifying the price for me! The price of Lancome Genifique has been corrected! Even better now for us to give this product a try as it's lower than the "launching day" amount)

"Youth is in your genes and we can reactive it."

After 10 years of research with 7 international patents. Lancome Paris invents the first youth activator reviving genes activity that stimulates the production of youth proteins. I learned about the wonderful effects of Lancome's Genifique last July 24th at the Lancome Boutique Greenbelt 5.

Ms. Khristine Dy and Ms. Cary Co, both from the L'oreal group, expressed that Genifique is incredibly simple to incorporate into any skincare regimen as Genifique is the ideal layering product. It's lightweight texture absorbs beautifully into the skin leaving it very soft and velvety to touch. I like what I heard! I like it when a new product is launched and I don't need to purchase their full line!

Visibly younger skin can be seen in 7 days
  • drop by drop, skin is infused with life
  • vibrant with youth, skin looks as if lit from within - breatakingly radiant
  • skin's youthful quality returns: cushiony soft and velvety to the touch
  • skin's tone is astonishingly even; its texture dramatically refined

To make the event more fun! We were given a Lancome version of Amazing Race! Each of us were divided into teams in threes or fours. I was lucky enough to be grouped with Shen, Ellaine and Hershey. Girls in heels? No worries! We're all up for the challenge!

We were given a letter with instructions and the first 3 to be able to reach the "pit stop" will be given a blue pebble, the more blue pebbles you get, you'll get a chance to win a door prize!

Though we came in second! I still call ourselves winners! We got into the top 3 for every pit stop! Hey ho!!!! 5 blue pebbles in the house!!! We've scored ourselves a lovely white purse and a full size Hypnose perfume!

Thanks to the Lancome people for coming up with crazy ideas and for making this event memorable! My body got the workout it deserves!
