Reader Review: Odile Lecoin OR Je Suis Anti-Age Serum

Is a Solution for:
Sagging Skin
December 30, 2008 Reviewed by TIA Community Member 2 Comments
Although I've always been told that I look much younger than my actual 26, I'm always interested in trying any product that claims to prolong my youthful look.Odile Lecoin OR Je Suis new anti-wrinkle serum claims to give "up to 71% reduction of wrinkles depth after just one hour!"Any product that promises results so quickly sounds worthy to me.

The packaging of this product is beautiful.In a glass bottle with gold accents, the yellow serum masquerades as perfume rather than anti-aging skin care.With an easy-to-use pump, the serum is dispensed in perfect portions for application to the face, neck and décolleté.Its light fragrance makes it feel fresh without being overpowering, and it is easily blended with any moisturizer; OR, j'aime, Odile Lecoin's ultimate day cream, is recommended as an immediate follow-up.


The serum itself is a little tricky to apply, however.OR, je suis contains silk and wheat proteins, along with marine elastin, to promote supple, firm and silky smooth skin.Despite, or because of, these ingredients, the product itself feels a bit oily when dispensed.It's tricky to transfer the serum from hand to face (as well as neck or décolleté) without losing a little bit in the process.And with its bright yellow hue, I'm a little concerned about staining.


Once applied, however, any oily texture disappears as it immediately penetrates the skin.OR, je suis seems to absorb without any trace of oil or residue, yet doesn't leave a drying sensation either.The serum provides a flawless surface on which to apply moisturizer and make up.


Although I haven't noticed a dramatic effect within the boasted hour needed for results, I have seen a steady reduction of fine lines around my eyes and mouth since I started applying OR, je suis every morning.I'll definitely continue to indulge myself in this little morning ritual and hope that reduction of wrinkles can transcend to prevention as well!

    I'm really not a fan of this line. It's super expensive, but if you look at the ingredients, they are all completely generic. There's nothing special about this serum at all.

    Erno Laszlo has some nice serums (the Transphuse line) for the same price that have much more effective ingredients.
