Developed using their extensive knowledge of skincare technology and plant extracts, Lancôme Homme is an effective and highly desirable brand. The Lancôme Homme range is formulated to combat the unique elements of male skin and is specially formulated on their unique observations of male skin. Lancôme Homme aims to repair and nourish fragile skin worn by shaving, combat dehydration problems and provide nourishment and energy to male skin.
Why does it work? Smoothens and visibly improves the skin texture by strengthening it. The skin becomes more resistant. It is recharged, repaired and protected. Suits all skin types, even the most sensitive…and especially those showing the first signs of aging : tired, dull and uneven complexions. From Lancome.co.ukHow do I use it? On clean, dry skin, apply daily, in the morning or in the evening, onto the face and neck with smoothing, energetic and rapid strokes. From Lancome.co.uk
Pros: Feels light, not at all oily, smells great! I was surprised by the level of oil control - the next morning after (evening) use, my skin was surprisingly...well...normal...not as greasy as other products tend to make it.
Cons: Pricey! OUCH! After 5 days of use from a sample tube, I didn't exactly feel as if I looked any younger. No SPF!
Bottleworthy? Hmmm, let's see, if I used 5ml in 5 days, then I would likely use one tube every 2 months, so 6 tubes a year....might be cheaper than a facelift...but will it really work?
Where can I buy it? $41.50 for 50ml tube at FragranceX.com
The Bottom Line: Alright, so I'm now in my 30's and would like to pay more attention to saving face, especially having grown up in South Florida's tropical sun and being an on-again/off-again smoker. This stuff smells good, feels good, and will hopefully be around for a while (as so many men's lines seem to have short life-spans!)...but I wonder how it compares to the other men's products out there? And that price! Yikes!
Rating (out of 10): Hmmm, this is tough. I'll give it a 6, weighed down by the price, lack of SPF and inability to judge if it's truly effective.
I traditionally have used women's moisturizers for the lower price, larger quantity, and availability of reviews. Men's skincare is harder to find decent reviews of and many lines disappear after a while. Should we men really be using a "men's" product?
