As part of their 2007 Best of Beauty Awards, Allure Magazine honored L’Oréal Paris Skin Genesis line with the Breakthrough Award. Here’s why…the products are formulated with patented Pro-Xylane, an exclusive L’Oréal molecule seven years in the making that strengthens skin and reignites cell activity layers.

I’m no chemist, so I can’t really speak to the science behind Skin Genesis. But as a beauty addict, I can safely say that the Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer Oil-Free Lotion ranks up there with the best facial moisturizers I’ve ever tried.

First, I love how my skin literally drinks it in. When I apply the lotion after exfoliating, better shield your eyes because my skin is positively luminescent. It also does an excellent job of keeping the greasies at bay – so if your face is on the shinier side, I would absolutely recommend this lotion. And in the few weeks that I’ve been using it, I have noticed an improvement in my skin’s firmness and tone. I’m not the best at using skin treatments consistently – I’m forgetful and easily distracted. But I never leave the house without moisturizer, so I love that this one has multiple benefits.

There’s just one caveat. Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer Oil-Free Lotion doesn’t contain sunscreen. It just seems a little odd that a product aims to prevent and reverse signs of aging, yet doesn’t offer sun protection.

    I’ve been using their Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 (white bottle) for about 3 months now, and I love the way my skin has improved as a result. Haven’t seen many results from their eye serum, but I don’t think there’s much I can do to get rid of undereye circles. The SPF moisturizer isn’t oil free, but it’s still incredibly light, and paired with a decent primer my makeup still lasts through most of the day.

    Wow. I find it so weird that pro-xylane is in this. Its in lancome absolue bx line. Those items are really for someone very aged. (lack of elasticity and clarirty) I’m glad to see it in something I could actually use. I just wish it was still lancome =( I know loreal is lancome
