Lancôme - Energie De Vie Liquid Moisturizer

Hello everyone! A bright and fresh blog post is right before you! I am finally talking about Lancome's Energie De Vie Liquid Moisturizer! I know that light textures and lught products may not be popular in fall/winter season, but I think it's always perfect time for a light moisturizing product, since we all need hydrating skincare! Here are my experiences with the product!

I was very intrigued when I saw this online in the beginning of spring this year. I believe I have first seen it at Estee Lalonde, in one of her videos and I was like - what is that, it's green and it's packaged in a super nice green bottle... and it's not a toner not a cream, not a serum, not a fluid.... what is it?

It's something in between toner and fluid mostuirzer, so they called it liquid moisturiser. It's enriched with Goji Berry extract and Lemon Balm oil, which both promise to help your skin be more energised, well hydrated and healhier. The product has been inspired by Korean beauty technology (as so many have been of late), the liquid formula melts right into the skin. It's supposed to make your skin smoother, softer and well prepped for makeup. Some also give thsi product a description of being a post-gym glow in a bottle, so basically skin looking healthy and glowy after a good workout. 

How to use this liquid moisturizer? I usually apply hydrating and caring products in the evening, but I had an impression this was meant for morning routines and maybe just as first step in nighttime routine, after cleansing. It is recommended to use this in place of your normal daily moisturiser. You don't need much, usually a drop or rather two, apply on clean skin and blend in circular motions.

The packaging of this really appeals to me. At the same time it's nothing special, but I just love the green shade they went with! And the shape of the bottle. I also approve of the pump dispenser, easy to use and clean! Bottle is made of glass, so a bit on the heavy side and I wouldn't travel with this. You can get this in two sizes, 30 ml or as mine  is, 50 ml. Once uponed it should last 12 months.

It's a silky light moisturizer  that actually does what it promises - smooths the skin, prepps it for any other products you may use, gives it some natural healthy looking glow. It was perfect to use in summertime, as it is very light in texture and prepares my skin well for light foundation. But I haven't stopped using it and I can confirm it works just as well in colder months. My skin type is oily to mixed (especially in winter my skin gets  even more crazy) and I found this product to do just what I needed. When I was not doing much, just being at home and I wanted to use something light in summertime I applied a bit of this and it helped me hydrate my skin without making me look oily. Now in fall, almost winter time, I can see it helps me keep my skin well hydrated. The difference is even more visible than it was in summer. I guess it's also beacuse of the weather change, heating indoors and dry air, drinking less water as I don't feel so hot anymore.  I was usually using this in the morning instead of any other cream or moisturiser. I am not big on applying toner, moisturiser, primer, foundation and everything else on top, as I usually get too oily too soon or the cream that is ok with my skin doesn't work well with my primer or foundation. So I was used to just toner, primer, foundation routine and with time it showed on my skin. I was lacking some serious hydration and in the past years I have never noticed any changes, but as I am getting older, my skin even though oily and with acne, still needs a good hydrating care. Once I started using this in my morning routine it showed quite quickly that it does make a difference. My skin was softer, the products lasted better on me, the foundation didn't sink into my skin and didn't show any dry patches, beacuse those were well nourished. And than I stopped using this product, because as any beauty blogger I like to try a million things, even though that may not be good for the skin. Than autumn came and with it more changes with my skin. I again felt like something is missing from my routine. So I started using this again and I again noticed improvements. They were slight at first, but now I think I will use this regularly, as my skin reacts well to the product. It's smoother, softer, looks more hydrated, my pres don't show as much, it works well in combo with the products I apply later - primer, foundation, ... It does have a light fresh scent, but it doesn't bother me, as it doesn't linger on the skin too strongly. The product doesn't have any colouring added, so you won't turn into Shrek! :P Also the texture itself is best described as a thick liquid that does sink into the skin fast and doesn't grease up my skin. If you have normal to mixed skin you may not need any primer over it at all, but for me I like to use it, just to make sure my foundation stays matte for as long as possible. 

This is really an interesting product and effective at that! I have never tried anything like it. The cocktail of antioxidants it includes help you battle stress, dehydration, pollution and fatigue. I think this is perfect for all of us who love light textures and still want to see results! It's the first such product for Lancome as well, designed to be all-in-one skincare product, fresh and light as a lotion, concentrated as a serum and highly moisturizing. The texture itself doesn't have any colouring added, so you won't turn into Shrek! :P

Have you tried this product as well? How did it work for you? I would love to try the sleeping mask from the collection as well! 

Thanks for reading!

Love, UniqaPoly

**PR product. My review is always honest and based on my own experiences with the product.


  1. Joj, se sliši zanimivo <3 Že pisem seznamček, kaj je še nekoč treba preizkusit - trenutno je izdelkov preveč, da bi si kakroli novega kupila, hihi ;) Mogoče sem zgrešila - kakšen pa je vonj?
    Xoxo, A.

    1. Hehe, se splača probat kak tester najprej, ker ni ravno poceni izdelek. Vonj je zelo rahel, svež. Nič vsiljivega. :)
