We Tried It: Lancôme Rénergie Multi-Glow Rosy Skin Tone Reviving Cream
Instead of testing out Lancome’s new Renergie Multi-Glow on a member of the Skincare.com team, we turned to a woman the product was more suited for, our Editor in Chief’s mother, Helen. Read her review of this rosy skin tone reviving cream that was tailor-made for women over 60 years old!
When your daughter’s a beauty editor, a huge perk is getting to steal freebies from her sample collection. But while I appreciate getting to raid Jackie’s beauty closet, there was very rarely a skin care product she had that I felt was made for my skin and skin care concerns—until now. Lancome’s new Renergie Multi-Glow was, as its label describes, tailor-made for women over 60 years old—which, for those reading, I am.
Getting older, one of the first things I noticed about my skin—aside from those wrinkles around my eyes!—was a loss of radiance. When I was younger, a dull skin tone was the least of my concerns but now that I’m in my 60s, it’s officially at the top of my list of things I wish I could change. It’s not that I want to look younger than I am, I’m from Europe where I think women are more inclined to embrace their age and growing older instead of fighting it. But, I do want to still have that radiance and that glow that I’ve always loved about my skin.
As a longtime user of Lancome’s Renergie collection—I’ve been purchasing the moisturizer for years—I was excited to try out their newest product, Multi-Glow, to share my thoughts (and these makeup-free before and after photos) with the Skincare.com readers after receiving a complimentary sample.
The daytime moisturizing cream is a rosy skin tone reviving cream that helps with radiance, plumpness, and lifting. Its formula is infused with Schizandra red berry extract and linen extract.
The pink-hued cream has a floral scent that isn’t overpowering but is definitely noticeable. For those that prefer unscented skin care products, this isn’t for you. But, for women like me who like to have a sensorial experience when applying skin care, you’ll love it! It lingers ever-so-slightly after application.
The cream has a rich texture that melts onto the skin. It’s not too thick that it feels heavy, but its definitely luxurious and creamy. I have combination skin, my nose tends to get a little oily during the day, but my cheeks feel dry, so I appreciated how much this product moisturized my skin, without leaving it feeling greasy.
After applying a small amount of the cream over my facial contours, I found that it had an instant recharging effect on my complexion. The small beads in the cream burst and melt onto the skin right away, which along with the scent, really gave me the sensorial experience I love with skin care. My skin felt moisturized and I really did feel like I appeared to have that rosy tone and glow that I associate with youthful skin.
Overall I plan to continue to use the cream in my daytime skin care routine under my makeup to get that glow I love.
