Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate - Fourth Week

Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate - Fourth Week
Last week I talked about being tired and busier than a bee, but my skin held true like a trooper and did not betray the proper rest I was lacking, thanks to the Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate.

My last bottle, which I bought from Foschini at a 20% discount (normal retail price is R780), was already running low, so I was using it as sparingly as possible.
