L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Luminize Serum – Review

*Guest Post by Pallavi Bose*

Hello lovelies..

We all get tired from long tiring office hours and our body needs some revital to refresh ourselves. But what gets more tired than our body is our skin and this tiredness is clearly reflected on our face. It lacks the sparkle and shine. I was really interested to try out the “newbie” in the skin care industry- “SERUMS”. Serums propose to revitalize your skin by keeping them soft, supple and giving that luminous glow to the face.

So, with this thought I went one day to my favorite beauty store and came through this product. The SA was all singing praises for it so, I thought why not give it a try. So, here comes the L’OREAL PARIS YOUTH CODE LUMINIZE SERUM for all you beautiful ladies….


About:  A precious,  light-infusing  serum  developed  for  women  aged  25-35  to  help  correct  dark  spots and  reveal  more  even,  youthful  looking  skin. The  Serum  is  enriched  with  patented  Lumi-GenTM technology to even and illuminate your skin tone. Clinically proven results: Immediately, your skin is deeply hydrated. It glows with a new luminosity. In 1 week, your skin is more even. Correction of different types of dark spots begins. Marks start to fade: dark spots, sun spots and age-spots. In 1 month, dark spots are visibly reduced. Your skin tone is even and more luminous.



After 10 years of research, L’Oréal scientists have cracked the code to more even, luminous skin by discovering a specific set of genes that are responsible for correcting discolorations and enhancing skin’s luminosity. Introducing: Lumi-GenTM technology, which regulates the skin’s pigmentation to reduce the appearance of skin tone imperfections.


Usage: Apply this serum by itself or before your daily care, morning or evening, on your freshly cleansed face and neck. The light formula penetrates your skin leaving it intensely hydrated and incomparably silky and soft to touch. For best results, follow with Luminize Day Cream.

Packaging: It comes in a silver pump dispenser bottle with a silver nozzle cap which has to be twisted in order to be closed or opened. The nozzle dispenses a very small amount of product. So, this prevents product wastage. But, the bottle is opaque so one can never found out the remaining product.20140505_150335_resized

Price and Quantity: This serum costs Rs.1499. It comes in a 30 ml bottle which lasts quite long. I use it twice daily (morning and evening) and I have been using it for last 1.5 month and I think I haven’t sued even 30% of the product. In this way it can easily last 5-6 months which makes the serum quite economical.


My views : My skin is dry so I am always in need of products which hydrate my skin. Since my facial skin is always prone to tiredness so, a boost in my skin is just what my skin wants. This serum claims to deliver both the promises. So, I took it without second thoughts. I came back from mall and cleansed my face at night and applied it on my bare face. As soon as I took out the product it felt very light. It is basically a cream translucent white in color, runny in nature which blends into the skin at one go. The cream has beautiful floral fragrance which stays for a while and then disappears.The cream post application blends into the skin quite fast. It gets absorbed instantly and skin feels soft and velvety to touch. There is an instant glow to the skin. But since the skin feels too light and I have dry skin so, I need some strong moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated. This serum doesn’t solve the hydration issue. Now coming to the long term I used this serum for 15-20 days religiously twice every day.I witnessed a subtle glow in my face which imparted a healthy look overall. I noticed mild spots disappearing with continuous use of 1 month. I cannot comment about pigmentation issues because I don’t have any major pigmentation. But this serum works fully to hide minor flaws. I have quite a few discoloration issues because of tanning and this serum worked effectively to protect them.


Rating : 4/5

Recommendation : In overall, this serum is good if you want to give a healthy boost to your skin. The price tag is more but the quantity is perfect. It is also effective in covering mild pigmentation.
