#NoFilterSkin: Lancôme Energie de Vie Review

Sometimes my skin hates me. And then I hate it. Then we are passive aggressive towards each other for a little bit. Eventually I give in, usually during a session of scrutinising every square millimetre of my face in the mirror – then I ask: “What have I done to you!? What do you want from me!?” To which my skin never replies because it’s inanimate…and petulant. But recently my skin and I have been super happy together, I even compliment it sometimes and it’s because of some therapy we’ve been going through…and the Lancôme Energie de Vie range.

The packaging is green. I like that. The range consists of a Pearl Lotion, a Liquid Moisturiser and a Night Mask if you’re in the UK. The range seems to differ a bit between countries (in the US: lotion, water-infused cream and an overnight balm) but I’ve tried both the mask and the comforting cream (available in France) and both are next level.

I have a confession to make: I’ve never tried Lancôme skincare before, I know I’m so late to the game. After my skin throwing a hissy fit, I was intrigued by the range because it’s inspired by Korean skincare (which I’m all over) and I liked the green…I’m being honest here ok!?

The pearl lotion isn’t the consistency of a serum or a toner, it’s somewhere in the middle and does a refreshing job of hydrating and prepping the face for the rest of the range – it also dries super fast which is handy, because ain’t nobody got time for waiting.

The liquid moisturiser is basically life changing – this is more like the consistency of a serum but it’s an actual moisturiser (again, dries fast) and it’s everything.

I bought the range in Paris so I have the night comfort cream which is thick but never sticky, and leaves your skin hydrated, plump, soft and fresh-looking, ready for the morning.
Prior to using this range, my skin had basically been having a temper tantrum and literally since using Lancôme’s Energie de Vie, my skin is smooth, soft and basically looks amazing even without a filter (#NoFilter), no need to switch to the trusty dog filter or that smoothing one on the Snap anymore (btw, my snap name is: Cassie2102).
Basically, I’d highly recommend the range, it’s fabulous and has done wonders for my skin in such a short amount of time using it, so if you’re after a range that’s moisturising – Lancôme’s Energie de Vie will hook you up.


Which skincare brand/range do you swear by? Have you tried Lancome’s Energie de Vie?

    That moisturiser sounds great, I like the idea that it’s quick drying. Some moisturisers are a nightmare!

    I really like the sound of them all, especially the texture of the Pearl Lotion x
