Review: Lancome's Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate

There's a lot of hype going on for some time about Lancome's Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate.  Finally, I got a little curious because so many people were raving about how great this product is, and how much better their skin became simply by using this product.  So fortunately, with my next Lancome purchase I received a free sample of the Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate.

First off, I just want to let you know that I have normal to combination skin & I have minor breakouts sometimes but not a lot.  

USE/RESULTS: I applied a thin layer of this product on my face for one night, and for the next few days my skin began growing tiny cysts.  This immediately alarmed me, because I do not want anymore acne.  I also noticed the texture of my skin becoming not so toned anymore -  it was a combination of a weird chalky two toned look with addition to some shine that I didn't like.  I stopped using this product right away, and my skin began to go back to normal again.
I am glad this was just a sample, and I didn't have to pay and later not know what to do with the product. So obviously I don't plan on adding this product to my regimen.  Unfortunately, this was a miss for me, but  I'm sure this product works on certain people, and like with all's trial and error.
