We’re constantly on the hunt for product ingredients that simplify, amplify, and beautify effectively. And when they’re backed by brands with eight decades experience revolutionizing the skincare biz? We’re in.

Lancôme's ability to combine skin-first science with coveted results is anything but secret. They’re well-known for starting as a 1935 Parisian fragrance house, but what many beauty fans don’t also know is that they shook up the industry a mere year later with Nutrix, one of the world’s first commercially marketed multi-tasking skin creams.

Since then, they’ve gone on to launch cosmetics, counter services, and ad campaigns that continue to leave our beauty routines a little more inspired– and sane– each season.

Which brings us to our latest Lancôme love: Ferulic Acid – the star of their new Advanced Génifique Sensitive Serum. Not only did our team have a blast blending, shaking, and smoothing on this two-part, electric blue solution, but it’s earning rave reviews from GLOSSIES currently enjoying our September box, too.

Here’s the breakdown: If sunscreen and Hyaluronic Acid had a beauty baby, they’d deliver the UVA protection, skin refinement, and free radical-fighting powers that Ferulic Acid packs all on its own. And even better? Génifique also features a healthy dose of Vitamin E for an overnight moisture boost.

And did you know? Ferulic provides antioxidant protection against environmental aggressors that may lead to accelerated skin aging. Meaning: It’s never too early to start using it – or seeing results.

(Editor’s note: As recommended, we used it for seven consecutive nights during one of the most up-and-down weather weeks on record in NYC. Not only did our pores sit tight on humid train commutes, but we also noted that a few usually-dry patches around our mouth and nose were soothed, too. We poked around, and clinical testing confirmed our findings: Users reported an average of an 80% boost in anti-pollution protection and 93% reporting of instantly beautified skin.)

When it comes to brand discoveries like this one, can’t wait to see what’s next.
