The holiday season is coming, can you feel it in the air? For me, Christmas time is the happiest time of the year, although we should be happy all year round. One of the happiest things to do is to make other people happy, maybe that is why we give gifts during birthdays, special celebrations and of course, during Christmas time. In my office, we do practice Christmas gift exchange every year and even though we exchange only small gifts, it makes everyone happy and smiles will naturally be crafted on our lips.
If you have someone beloved in your life who is a beauty or makeup junkie, look no further than the beautiful sets created by Lancôme.

My personal favourite is this set, a set that gives you youth! This set contains Lancôme’s first anti-aging serum that targets 10 keys signs of youth: texture, resiliency, elasticity, firmness, sagginess, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, even skin tone, and clarity, with noticeable results in just 7 days. The most powerful serum in this set is the Advanced Génifique which is a serum used after cleansing to reveal smoother, more radiant skin for all ages and skin types. With an exclusive self-loading dropper, Génifique delivers the ideal dosage to bring back the light into your skin.
The set includes:
Advanced Génifique 75ml
Advanced Génifique Light Pearl 5ml
Génifique Eye Care 5ml
I love the luxurious packaging in black and silver. It comes with an easy to use dropper so I can get just the right amount to be used, usually just 2-3 drops is sufficient for the whole face. This serum is a day and night serum to be used right after cleansing and toning. Then I can go ahead and use my moisturiser on top or sleeping mask at nights. I also really love that this product is paraben-free, sulfates and phthalates free.
The serum is a light transparent gel type that is not at all sticky. In fact, it absorbs very quickly into my skin, so I will apply it on my face immediately. There is also no scent at all, which is good, means it’s great even for sensitive skin. Advanced Génifique as the name suggests uses advanced dermotology to repair skin of all types. After using it for a while, I could feel that is does decrease fine lines, and gives a radiance to the skin and my skin tone is more even. Most women my age and even men are afraid of sagging of the cheeks. While using the serum, I would massage my face upwards and the Advanced Génifique is known to improve our skin texture, elasticity, tonicity, firmness and of course decrease sagginess.
Price of Advanced Génifique: RM275 for 30ml | RM360 for 50ml | RM485 for 75ml

Your complexion can appear visibly brighter, smoother, firmer & denser with an improvement of luminosity & transparency like a white rose. Dark spots are less visible for a more uniform skin color.

I also adore this purple set just simply because it is in purple. Lancôme has created the first lifting skincare enriched with Multi-Tension technology.
Do you experience sagging or want to prevent it? Then maybe this is the right set, the Rénergie range that promises a flawless complexion and a 12-hour lifting effect with Rénergie Multi- Action Day Cream, Rénergie French Lift, Rénergie Plasma and Rénergie Yeux. It is the ultimate uplifting effect for younger-looking skin. Containing yeast and rye seed extract, this formula delivers visible results: facial contours, cheekbones and jawline, are lifted. Skin looks firmer and wrinkles are visibly reduced.

Give the Gift of Joyful Femininity
La Vie Est Belle is a French expression for Life is Beautiful. This has got to be the most romantic gift set. Perfect for that gesture of giving to the girl you had been crushing on. Iris is the key ingredient of the perfume, surrounded by orange blossoms and jasmine in the heart. The composition’s opening provides fruity flavors of blackcurrant and pear, while the base is warm, gourmand and powdery due to almond-like accords of tonka bean, praline, patchouli and vanilla.
This fragrance is surely to set that holiday moment sailing over the moon.
La Vie Est Belle 50ml EDP
Body Lotion 200ml
Give the Gift of Miracle Moments
I had heard of this perfume even while in high school, it was the favourite of some of my girl besties. Joyful. Empowering. Inspiring. MIRACLE is a sudden and marvelous revelation that life is extraordinary, that life is a miracle. This sensual, spicy floral fragrance is bursting with the zest of brilliant Freesia, peppered with Ginger and serenely balanced by warm Amber notes. If you love perfume, this is the right set for you.
Miracle 30ml EDP
Body Lotion 50ml
Shower Gel 50ml
Give the Gift of Beautiful Mystery
This gourmand fragrance is for women that believe in the modern love story. The Black Rose; symbol of absolute love, and the Vanilla Tahitensis Orchid; perfumery’s very own secret gem, combine with the sharpest green notes to create La Nuit Trésor’s alluring character that is reminiscent of an electric night.
The diamond shaped bottle is a gemstone created with 2 star colors. The mystery of the Black meets the delicacy of the Pink, giving contrast and tension to the new vision of love expressed by Lancôme, the Love of the 21st Century.
La Nuit Trésor 50ml
