Tired of looking tired? Well thank the Sweet Lord of Great Skin then that the caring people at Lancôme have created the rather amazing Énergie de Vie. A super simple, efficacious routine that works to reawaken tired, dull skin, it has been specifically formulated for younger women’s skin to get that elusive glow – and keep it well into the next ten or years or more.
We all know that today's signs of fatigue could turn into tomorrow's visible signs of aging, and then you’re in an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff situation reaching for every expensive Hope In A Jar you can get your hands on. Using Énergie de Vie however, means that you go into the fight with all guns blazing against the likes of lack of sleep, high stress, pollution and daily life excesses. All these environmental factors alter the appearance of the skin over time, and as the years go on can’t be corrected by just a big glass of water and an early night!
Key to the routine is Lancôme’s Énergie de Vie Liquid Moisturizer, which has been designed to wake up your skin with a burst of what they like to call “anti-fatigue hydration”. The soft, hydrating liquid moisturizer fuels your skin for a refined texture, renewed bounce, and gorgeous glow. Its unique formula is hydrating like a cream but concentrated like a serum, and feels light like an essence when applied to the skin.
Reportedly inspired by Korean skincare routines and beauty technology, the water-infused moisturizer works to address the aforementioned first visible signs of aging and is formulated with goji berry, lemon balm, and vitamin E to provide antioxidant protection against free radicals. With a powerhouse of hydration in every drop, it is ultra hydrating and anti-fatigue, leaving your skin feeling smoother and softer a perfectly prepped for make-up application. It’s been called “a post-gym glow in a bottle” - which I love - and its suitability for all skin types will make it a huge hit for the brand in my humble opinion.
It’s also super easy to use in place of your normal daily moisturiser – just apply one or two drops to clean skin, and blend in circular motions. Shortly after, you’ll see the texture transform to a fresher, smoother finish literally before your eyes. Pretty amazing, huh?
Last up, it is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates, and even the production processes used to create it are super gentle to ensure the active ingredients’ efficacy. Very, very cool and a great move for such a major brand.
This beauty is in store now alongside the rest of the Énergie de Vie collection, with an RRP of $70.00.
