I'm trying out Lancome Genifique

Whenever I get stuff from beauty brands, I get excited. But when they come in mysterious white boxes, that means the product is so new that only I and a few others have the coveted bottle!
Lancome sent me their latest skincare serum, the Genifique. It's a youth-activating concentrate that promises to make skin look younger in 7 days. Today is June 1 so let me make a review post on June 8!Oh, and thanks, Lancome, for also slipping in a tube of your fabulous lip gloss! I love it!

Hi Tamara, I'm a magazine editor so I always get tons of free stuff to review. Tyra did a show on how to get freebies. Here's a link:

D-C! Work on that degree and you'll be a media maven in no time!

I think your job is so cool! I'm working hard trying to be a freelance beauty reviewer....any tips? I'm based in Malaysia. ;)

wow... nice job, its the same privileged that jessica soho featured story, like having this free travel across the world because he is a photographer and another one is free cosmetic surgery coz she's a personal assistant... nice!

Wow, that's nice, you got Genifique in full size! :D I tried it during one of the L'Oreal events. And, I must say, unlike other anti-aging creams and serums, this one is absorbed faster by the skin and definitely lightweight. :)

Vonvon, try to contact magazines and newspapers or websites and offer to do reviews for them in exchange for the products. That means offering your services to them for free--after all, you are getting products anyway!

Gracie, free travel is also part of my job but I never see it as a perk since I hate traveling! The free beauty stuff is fab, though!

Roanne, ya, I like this one too. Full review soonest!
