DON’T HATE ME FOR BEING PAMPERED
Kérastase and Lancôme Indonesia joined forces to bring beauty bloggers, a special pampering day.
Named Super Serum Duo Pampering Day, me and fellow beauty bloggers experienced the duo super breakthrough ritual at Irwan Team Hair Design Salon, Central Park Shopping Mall, Jakarta, Indonesia last Thursday. This exclusive bloggers only event was held to introduce the latest skincare innovation from Lancôme, Advanced Génifique and the breakthrough discovery for hair from Kérastase, Initialiste.
In case you’ve missed my previous blog’s post for the introduction of both products here, Advanced Génifique and Initialiste have two same goals, to beautify.
Are you familiar with the previous Génifique which was launched back in 2009 and noted as one of the beauty revolution? Well, it was the first Youth Activating Concentrate which effectively returns the skin back to its youthful quality, based on our genes and protein relation. What differs the previous Génifique with the Advanced Génifique? Except the advanced formulas with 40% more active ingredients so we can see faster result (they claimed in 7 days), Advanced Génifique has different texture (from my experience it’s more of a light gel than the previous liquid texture) which made it absorb better, and (the best part of all) it has a new advanced dropper design. The bottle may not change, but for sure it has this self-loading dropper, so no more lucky guess of how many drops should we put on our face and neck for each application. It may be used for day and night as a booster before serum, as our genes are practically weakened by aging. In the morning, it’ll help to activate the genes, and at night it’ll repair the skin to boost the protein production. As the good people at Lancôme said, we can see and feel the improvements and reactivation of the 10 key signs of youth on our skin. Well, that was the concentrate for skin.
How about hair? As precious as stem cells for the skin, same here for the hair. There are 2 stem cells pools at the hair follicle’s level, which able to renew the follicle and hair generation. Initialiste, the first ever hair serum will impulse the hair growth at its source, creating more beautiful and stronger hair. In my opinion, its’ texture (easily absorbed) and scent (not overpowering like some hair products) exactly resemble the best of skin serum product, right down to the bottle and its’ dropper. Make sure you don’t get the wrong product for each. How to use Initialiste? Apply on clean shampooed hair, twice per week on thin hair and up to 3 times per week on normal to thick hair. As it’s a leave-in formula, do not rinse and style as usual.
At the bloggers’ event, I got my skin and hair on both products. I went in the salon with my dirty oily hair & undone face (you don’t want to see the before picture) and I went out with my lustrous, blow-dried hair and luminous skin (you can see my after pic above). Thanks for a super pampering day, team Kérastase and Lancôme Indonesia.
