Product Review: Guinot Longue Vie Cou
For those of you who don’t feel like reading the full review, I’ll make this short: Save your money.
Guinot Longue vie products have been hailed as containing a miraculous mix of proteins, vitamins and amino acids which was supposedly developed in a hospital burn unit to create an optimal potion for cell renewal. I have used quite a few of their products. Some make me feel good, some do not. This one does not.
This product is supposed to increase cell regeneration and smoothing in the décolleté and neck areas. However, I have been using this product twice daily for quite some time now and the results have been – Zero. OK, maybe I’m being unfair. Let’s say…2%.
Now, I will admit that I am beginning to show some signs of aging. Especially from the sun. However, I have always made skincare a priority so I like to think that I am not yet at the point of no return. (i.e.; I am not living in turtlenecks yet) I do not mind paying a premium price for a premium product which delivers good results. I do mind paying a premium price for a product that works just as well as my super market hand cream. Guinot products are mainly available only in spa’s (although I have recently noticed a few available online) which supports the marketing image of a superior product and which also makes this so much more the disappointment.
This 30 ml bottle runs at about 80 €. Trust me, you do not want to spend that kind of money on this kind of product. With that price, you could buy products that actually do work like Guerlain, Ahava or Chanel.
You don’t have to listen to me. Of course not. But creating awareness of the million products that do and do not actually work – no BS included – is why I began this blog to begin with. So…
If anyone has tried this product, please share your experience with it! I am aware that my thoughts are not necessarily the majority and it would be nice to hear from all perspectives.
Thank you and GGGRRRRR…!
