Lancome Advanced Genifique Sensitive Antioxidant Serum Manufacturer’s Detail
From the French luxury brand that brought the world some of the most unforgettable fragrances and the most to-die-for beauty products, Lancôme brings you another must-have for skin at any age.

It continues its tradition of luxury and absolute indulgence to this day.

LANCOME Advanced Genifique Sensitive Antioxidant Serum reviews read:
- “I was so excited when I saw this new sensitive formula and then I found out it contains fragrance. How can they claim this is for sensitive skin and then put fragrance in it. Truly sensitive skin can not handle fragrance. I would love them to come out with one that is truly for sensitive skin and that means NO fragrance. ” — Oregon on Nordstrom
- “I have eczema and my skin is extremely sensitive to many irritants. With daily use of Genefique Sensitive, my skin does not react to irritants nearly as often. When I forget to put it on, I notice a huge difference. My skin will become red and itchy. I highly recommend this product for anyone who suffers from itchy, red skin caused by everyday irritants.” — Mel5 on Nordstrom
LANCOME Advanced Genifique Sensitive Antioxidant Serum packs in sufficient antioxidants to boost skin protection from environmental causes of skin damage and aging. However, it may not be sufficiently formulated to suit every skin type.
