Yummy411: L'Oreal Skin Genesis Serum Concentrate

I've been interested in finding a serum for a while, since I'm closer to 30 and need to take these wrinkle and aging prevention measures more seriously. The few I've tried have been sticky, gooey and just not something I felt like figuring out.

L'Oreal's new serum on the market (offered on the shelves with the Oil Free moisturizer and other products of the Skin Genesis line) is actually intriguing!

Why? The serum is not gooey and tacky, it can be used morning and night, it absorbs well into the skin and your hands arenb't messy after application! Serums don't usually have SPF in them, so that's not a concern. I would like to use this instead of my moisturizer, but at the expense of no SPF, I'll keep this handy as a night time treatment. It's recommended to be used before your moisturizer. Oh yeh, by the way, (LOL) my skin does feel a bit more firm, more together, like the elasticity is strengthening after about a week and a half of use. LOVE. L'Oreal Skin Genesis Serum Concentrate recommended!

I'd love to try this out, but it's rather expensive for a drugstore brand though. Hmm ... decisions, decisions.

This line is expensive, but I guess it's worth it!

Girl, get the hell out! You look nowhere near 30 -barely 23; you do NOT need $20+ L'oreal skin serum! That serum needs YOU!

I, on the other hand, am wrinkling up like a damn raisin, so if you find something out there that makes you look EVEN younger, you let the Panda know, stat!
