Lancome Primordiale Skin Care

I recently got a sample for the Lancome Primordiale Skin Recharge Moisturizer. Not thinking much of it, I used the larger-than-normal sample right away, instead of leaving it and eventually forgetting about it. It lasted me almost a week of daily use, and let me tell you I fell in love right away!

The moisturizer smelled delicious and made my skin look and feel smooth and rejuvenated. It is has a tangy freshness to it; citrus fruits and white flowers compliment the anti-aging cream.

I normally don’t buy or use anti-aging products and really didn’t know it was one until I was researching it for this story. This moisturizer is ideal for treating the first signs of aging, so I guess I am a good candidate!
This product was developed to battle the first signs of aging; when the cellular activity slows down, resulting in rough, uneven skin texture and enlarged pores.

Primordiale Skin Recharge contains biotin, a powerful energetic co-enzyme. This ingredient helps to ‘recharge’ cells deep within the surface of the skin. These revitalized new cells rise to the surface, thus approving the appearance of healthy and radiant looking skin.

This luxurious cream also contains a unique complex of gentle’ resurfacers’ which helps aide skin turnover rate. It also helps minimize the look of large pores and fine lines.

In 3 days of regular use, you are meant to see the minimizing of pores and a healthier glow to your skin. After 4 days of use your skin should feel revitalized and have a refined texture.

I am definitely sold by using the sample for one-week, and am going out to purchase this product. It retails for $64, and the night cream for $66. More than I would usually spend on a facial product, but well worth it!
