Picture from Lancome website
According to the sales associate, this product was 10 years in the making. Doing some online research, I have read that it's 12 years. Whether it's 10 years or 12 years, the main point is that it took a significant number of years to develop this product. You can check out this link on Lancome's website which explains the product reasonably well. The one very disappointing thing is that I couldn't find a full ingredient list--anywhere online. Perhaps I'm just not searching well but I personally think that this is important information which should be easily accessible.
I was a bit skeptical because Teint Miracle was touted as being a break-through product after 10 years of research. I tried Teint Miracle and was not impressed by it at all. On me, it didn't do what it said it would do. Genefique was also another product that I was disappointed in.
The sales associate applied one pump onto the back of my hand and rubbed it in. It did feel quite nice and the skin did seem to have smoothed a bit. I left and by the time I reached home, I could not stand it any more. It is highly fragranced and the fragrance lingers! I washed dishes twice and still the scent lingered. For those who do not like scented products, this is definitely not for you. One main reason why I went in search of the ingredient list is because I wanted to see if it contains silicone as the surface of my skin felt like smoothed out like when I've tried products with silicone in it. Upon waking up the next morning, that area where the product had been applied did seem to still be smoother--could it be because of the product having penetrated the layers of the skin? Remember, this product was applied in the afternoon of the previous day and I had done numerous hand washings, washed dishes and showered. If Lancome can produce this product unscented, I would definitely want to test it out on face. As it is now, the fragrance is too overwhelming and lingers that I would probably end up nauseous and with a headache. To me, the scent reminds me of musk, which is not a scent that I like at all.
