The Serum That's Like Kombucha For Your Skin

I'm a big believer in pre and probiotics. Actually, I could go as far to say they changed my life. Well, at least they changed my gut. You can find out more about that here.

But today we're delving into the benefits of pre and probiotics on the skin. Much like the gut, our skin has it's own microbiome. If you've ever experienced a skin reaction, a compromised barrier or ongoing sensitivity, your microbiome might be screaming out for help.

But What Is A Microbiome?

A microbiome is a beneficial living ecosystem of microbes (microorganisms), which forms an integral part of your skin's overall health, and it's ability to repair and protect itself. Keeping the microbiome balanced is essential to maintaining optimal skin health, as well as preventing water loss, sensitivity and inflammation.

Okay, that's enough of a science lesson for now. I'm actually here to introduce you to a serum that contains all the pre and probiotic goodness to support your microbiome - I'm talking about Lancôme Advanced Génifique. In just one dropper of this anti-ageing serum, 30 million pre & probiotic fractions are delivered to the skin to support the microbiome - and in a week you're likely to notice visible results.

What Does Everyone Love About This Serum?

My favourite serum


I keep coming back to this serum after trying so many others. I've been using it on and off for years. The texture is beautiful and I always feel like my skin is just softer and silkier when I use it. It sits really well under any moisturiser and keeps my skin in good condition.

Used religiously


I absolutely love this product. I use it every morning as part of my skincare routine. It leaves my skin radiant and plump throughout the day. It absorbs well and I can easily apply my foundation over the top.

An essential in my skin care routine


This serum is incredible - has neutralised redness in my skin which was an ongoing issue for me, gives me a beautiful glow and my skin feels so smooth, no more texture. I use it twice alongside my regular moisturisers, but in summer on very hot days sometimes its enough because its also very hydrating. It is expensive but worth every cent, I can see myself buying this for many years to come.
