Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Micro-Lift Serum Concentrate: A quick review

Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Micro-Lift Concentrate

What it is: Part of the Guerlain Orchidée Impériale collection, the Micro-Lift Serum Concentrate features "7,000 micro-sculptors and millions of regenerating orchid molecules" to boost and replenish skin. 

Beauty bonus: Skin looked noticeably more smooth and hydrated with regular use. 

Beauty bummer: This luxury skincare product comes with a luxury price tag.

Overall: The Orchidée Impériale collection from the French brand Guerlain is an absolute treat. 

From the fresh scent of the products to the luxe exterior packaging — to the skincare ingredients contained inside, of course — the Guerlain Orchidée Impériale products proved to be a welcome addition to our skincare routine. The fact that the product ingredients are also 92 per cent of natural origin proved to be an added bonus.

The serum's ingredients include an Orchid Duo, which includes Gastrodia elata, an orchid said to be "essential to traditional Chinese medicine." The potent ingredient works to lift and firm skin, while also protecting it. 

The Micro-Lift Serum Concentrate envelops skin in a soft veil of coverage (a little goes a long way). When applied with the trademark Guerlain massage technique, it provides a nice spa-like experience at home. 

We followed the application experience with the Orchidée Impériale The Cream morning and night to further increase the moisture factor. As mentioned above, with consistent use, there was a noticeable change in the overall texture, tone and hydration level of skin. 

Would recommend? If your beauty budget allows it, then definitely!
