Génific HD Activateur analysis summary of Youth by Lancôme Men
Let’s first talk about the positive things: you have few ingredients, and it has several active ingredients. The second ingredient is one of them, which has the property of counteracting oxidative damage, which is very good in an anti-wrinkle cream.
It also has hyaluronic acid in the top ranks, and an ingredient that reduces the depth of wrinkles a little lower.
The rest are in the lower part of the INCI, so they will not contribute much.
However, we must also talk about the negative things, such as alcohol and silicone too high; as well as a buffering agent that can generate free radicals in the presence of oxygen, and because of this, it is preferable to avoid.
And lastly, we also see a potentially toxic preservative (Phenoxyethanol) that is also best avoided.
On this occasion I think that the negative ingredients outweigh the positive ones, which is why I would not recommend this cream.
There are alternatives that are formulated with several active ingredients that are effective against wrinkles, without ingredients that are better to avoid, such as Nezeni Cosmetics cream.
It is the one that I am using, and I explain my reasons in the article that I recommend above.

Her great concern to expand knowledge led her to settle in Paris where she studied hand in hand with the best beauty professionals and with the most advanced techniques for skin care.
