I’m a big fan of Lancome, I like their makeup (you can read about my favourite products here and I’ve loved the skin care that I’ve tried; my favourites being Lancome Hydra Zen and Genifique serum. So I was keen to try Lancome’s new range Energie de Vie . Like lots of new skincare in the UK and Europe Energie de Vie is influenced by Korean beauty technology. I’m really excited to see the way skincare in Europe is being affected by Asian trends, there’s so much fascinating technology to be harnessed. Lancome’s newest moisturiser, I think, is the start of skincare going in a new direction in this country, and I’m very interested to see what we’ll be getting next.
There’s three new products in the range, they are: Energie de Vie Liquid Moisturiser* , Energie de Vie Pearly Wake-up Lotion and Energie de Vie Sleeping Mask. I was sent a week’s worth of Energie de Vie Liquid Moisturiser* to try and I’ve just finished it up so here’s my thoughts! ( I bet you can’t wait).
Lancome Energie de Vie Liquid Moisturiser* is enriched with Goji berry extract and Lemon balm oil, both of which give the moisturiser a fresh scent. It’s not overpowering though and disappears pretty fast on the skin. As well as giving the moisturiser its scent Goji berry and Lemon balm extract brighten and liven up the skin. The texture of Energie de Vie Liquid Moisturiser* is really interesting, it actually feels more like a serum not dissimilar to their Genifique serum mentioned above. It’s much more liquid than a standard moisturiser and as such gives an amazing boost of hydration to the face. It sinks in really quickly leaving no tackiness or excess residue just comfortable, hydrated and smooth skin. Making it a perfect base for makeup application. As well as Energie de Vie Liquid Moisturiser* giving a shot of hydration it adds a brightness or healthy glow to the skin. Lancome say it’s a post-gym glow in a bottle. I say it definitely adds a glow, thankfully without all the redness and sweatiness of a workout.
I’ve only had a week’s worth, I usually like around a month to try out skincare or longer. Your skin generally renews every 8 weeks and this is when you get to see the real benefit of your products. But a week is still a decent enough time to find out if it’s suitable and get a good feeling for it overall. Energie de Vie Liquid Moisturiser* would suit all skin types. It targets dullness, roughness and dry skin but it sinks in so fully and leaves the skin so hydrated that I think all skin types would benefit. It’s not at all greasy so if you’re oily but need hydration I’d think about giving this a go, it’ll keep your skin moisturised without any uncomfortableness. It brightens the skin up instantly and leaves it smooth. Energie de Vie Liquid Moisturiser is particularly nice in warmer weather because it feels so fresh and quenching on the skin. My skin loves this moisturiser, I have combination/sensitive with a slightly oily t-zone and occasional dry cheeks, and my skin just drinks this stuff up. I haven’t experienced any aggravation, it hasn’t caused spots or redness or any other problems. In fact, when I’m finished working through my current moisturiser(s!) I’m going to treat myself to a full bottle of this and maybe the Pearly Wake-Up Lotion and I may as well get the Sleeping mask too.
Have you tried anything from the new Energie de Vie range?
