L'Oreal Skin Genesis Lotion is gross. It left a white gelatoinous film on my face all day that had to be scrubbed off. I am glad I just got the free sample from their website because I would never want to pay for this product. It also comes with a sample of of their serum. The serums isn't any better. It leaves your face feeling tight and sticky. Also needs vigorous scrubbing to remove. And of course neither produces any noticeable effect, at least for me. I definitely would not waste my money on either of these products. THe only good thing about it is that it smells decent, not great though, but at least it is not nauseating. I definitely do not recommend this for anybody who does not wnat the film rubbing off during the day. A simple drugstore brand moisturizer would be much more practical (and economical) and feel much better. I like the Boots brand one that comes in the dark blue bottle.
