Moisturizers -Lancome -Visionnaire Advanced Multi-Correcting Cream

on 3/2/2018 11:49:00 PM


I got this in a set with the genefique serum, it was a very good deal and I was excited to try it out. Upon using it for 2 weeks, my skin looked brighter plumper more radiant healthier. It was the best i had seen my skin in a while.
BUT- slows i noticed small pimples forming, very small ones dot dot dot across my foehead in my cheeeks/ AND mind you i am basically acne free prior to this duo. I thought, i would continue using it since it made my skin look so good, But Nopeee.
my skin kept breaking out- and i knew i had to return it. The two in a set cost alot!, so wasnt worth it obv if it breaks me out. I should also mention the frangrance in this is very strong.,

I knew it was this cream and not the genefique serum causing the breakout, i just knew, THE frangrance in it was too strong and tehrefore too many chemicals prolly causing the break out.

sigh, its been over a month and im still breaking out and have not been able to get back to normal skin like before even through i stoped using this and started a difff skincare line, its sooo weired how badly this wrecked my faceee

Moisturizers -Lancome -Renergie Lift Volumetry

REQUEST A SAMPLE FIRST TO TEST FOR AN ALLERGIC REACTION. I also want to chime in with an allergic reaction. I've received a few of these travel sized versions from Macy's whenever I boy my Lancome products, as I always buy them from Macy's when they're having a gift with purchase special offer. I'm not suffering from any wrinkles yet which is what this is actually intended for, but because it's the most expensive moisturizer option from which to choose as your free bonus, I always get this one. I finally decided to actually use them, so I did. Please note the moisturizer was not expired when I used it. I washed and applied it and felt my skin become warm, but slight redness and warmth is normal for me so I ignored it. Ironically today I was en route to my dermatologist's office for my monthly visit. Well, as soon as I walked in the PA freaked out saying that I was bright red. She was scared! I didn't feel weird, so I said it just must be the new moisturizer...that is, until I went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror. OMG, I was more red than a stop sign! My husband is a doctor so I immediately texted him asking what I could or should do. "Take a 25 mg Benedryl," he responded. So, I ran to Rite Aid and bought a box of it. Within minutes my ears went from hot pink purpley-red to almost normal, and my redness on my face has somewhat subsided. The dermatologist had handed me some samples of cream to wear to calm down the redness which I also applied. I would definitely request a sample of this before buying it because you want to ensure you do not end up like me.

Cleansers -Lancome -Galatéis Douceur

on 2/28/2018 3:02:00 AM


Excellent milky make-up remover that is easy to use and easy to remove with water or just wiping it off.
It might not remove make-up perfectly and therefore it is wise to use another product in conjunction with this. However, it is a must in cold winter weather since it will leave a thin hydrating layer on the skin even if removed with water.

It is a classic formula based on mineral oil and Isopropyl Myristate sprinkled with pineapple and papaya extracts. This latter has no contribution to the formula or the effect of it. It is purely for label-claim purposes. That means that companies can charge you more.
Actually the formula is identical to Vichy 3-in-1 Cleanser where L’Oreal has reused this winning mix of ingredients without the actives and added a less flattering fragrance to.

What I like about this product is that it is mild, leaves the skin hydrated, although it could be a bit richer and leave a more perceptive layer of hydration. It is fragranced but the fragrance will not linger and is undetectable after removal with water.
It is a very good product for combination skin and for dryer skin types in warmer/more humid weather.

Ingredients: Aqua / Water, Paraffinum Liquidum / Mineral Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Propanediol, Ci 777 / Ultramarines, Ananas Sativus Fruit Extract / Pineapple Fruit Extract, Sodium Hydroxide, Hydroxycitronellal, Peg-32, Peg-6 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Eugenol, Salicylic Acid, Silica, Linalool, Benzyl Alcohol, Cinnamyl Alcohol, Papain, Carbomer, Geraniol, Disodium Edta, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Parfum / Fragrance

Liquid -Lancome -Teint Idole Ultra Liquid 24h Longwear SPF 15 Foundation

on 2/27/2018 10:33:00 PM


I was looking for something similar to doublewear but not as heavy. Longwear is really important to me and I don’t like too drying as I’m dry combo in winter. (Ice since found the perfect way to wear doublewear to make it perfect).
This is so unbearably scented. So perfumy and floral. It’s so unnecessary. It’s irritating and makes me itch. I can smell it on my face an hour later.
It has good coverage and lasts 10+ hours. It’s a little flat matte for me. Given I’m looking for medium full long lasting and it ticks that box I’ve given it three stars but OMG the smell!!

Masks -Lancome -Hydra Zen Masque Anti Stress Moisturizing Overnight Serum-in-Mask

on 2/26/2018 3:39:00 AM


Unfortunately, this product was a huge disappointment.
I was expecting a gelled mask rather like the Life Plankton Mask from Biotherm, another L’Oreal owned brand, just like Lancome.
However, his product is a very thin and runny gel, more like a serum than a gel and the packaging should have been a pump rather a jar. (Or preferably, a thicker gel in the same very pretty jar.)

Unfortunately, it does not hydrate the skin even when applied in very large quantities.

I believe that L’Oreal has produced far better products than this. This is truly a poor formula. Even the colour should have been more refined, not to mention that a synthetic fragrance has nothing to do in a product from a luxury brand.
Although, I can understand the choice of the synthetic fragrance for a product designed for sensitive skin. (Allergic reactions are less likely to synthetic/man-made ingredients.) I believe, that opting for a fragrance-free version would have been a far better choice than the bubble-gum sweetness they have ended up with.

Despite some excellent humectants and a good concentration of Vitamin B3 (estimated 1-3% concentration) in the formula, one can surely find far better products that are cheaper too.

on 2/25/2018 8:59:00 PM


The scent is nice but strong to my nose. It does dissipate quickly too. I like the texture and how soft it makes my skin feel. I don't notice too much difference in my neck area but on my chest it softens some of the fine lines I'm getting from years of sun exposure. It also doesn't break me out. Price is steep, but overall I enjoy using this. The added sunscreen is a nice perk.

Stick -Lancome -Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick

on 2/24/2018 5:08:00 PM


The color choices are OK but the plastic packaging is cheap: Gold color lettering has quickly worn off and the thin top has a crack. Terrible given the price. I dislike holding it in my hands now, and there's plenty of product left to use up.

Nothing sends me about this stick foundation. Accentuates pores and fine lines. But the worst part is the cheap plastic packaging with worn-off gold lettering. Yuck. I explained to Lancome customer service, but they didn't care to replace my purchase.

Mascara -Lancome -Hypnose Drama


No no no. I got a sample of this and it's horrible. It flakes everywhere within 2 hours, and burns my eyes so bad. I'm tossing the sample. It also feels heavy and weighs my lashes down, I know mascara coats your lashes and adds weight to then in general, but this is a whole different feeling!

Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big

on 2/23/2018 7:38:00 PM

When it comes to Mascara. You look for volume, length and the ease to remove. This Mascara has them all (except for the last one for me) It claims to be washable the one I got but after removing it I get black smudgy areas on the lower lashes. I have sensitive eyes so my eyes get reddish sometimes when I use it two to three times in the same week. But the volume and length and long wear are just amaaaaaziiing I've never seen like it. I tired their hypnose and like it a lot but this one is soooooo gooood.... VOLUME. Can't explain enough. I highly recommend it. It is worth every penny. By the way I got mine as part of Lancome's Blockbuster Set of 2017 last December cool set. I have a video about the whole set and I was applying this Mascara as well if you'd like to see it in action. I hope you find my review helpful. If so, please hit the helpful button. Thanks so much for reading. xoxoxo

I have about 100 different lip liners and this is by far my favorite. I have 5 shades and I love every single one.

Foundations -Lancome -Skin Feels Good Skin Nourishing Foundation

on 2/23/2018 12:17:00 PM

I saw the advertisement for a new Lancome BB/ Tinted Moisturizer/ Foundation and with a name like Skin Feels Good (with SPF 23) I had to purchase it. I also noticed that Yves Saint Laurent released a similar product called Touche Eclat All in One Glow Tinted Moisturizer also with SPF 23. The ingredient list on this product is very very similar to the new Lancome Skin Feels Good and they both have SPF 23, too. The Lancome Skin Feels Good is priced a little more affordable ($35) than the similar Yves Saint Laurent Glow Tinted Moisturizer, which is $48. The first several ingredients of both products are identical- probably because both are owned by Loreal.

I really wanted to love the Lancome Skin Feels Good but it just didn't make my skin either look or feel good. This is highly fragranced and it takes quite a long time to dissipate. I also thought the finish of this started to look blotchy and uneven when I applied this over my primer (Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer). I'm not a big fan of this having an SPF of 23 because an SPF of at least 30 is the recommended level for daily use. This just didn't look natural or feel natural. This settled into fine lines as well. I wouldn't recommend this for dry skin, but I can't say that I think this would work well for oily skin either. I think this product needs some revisions or perhaps the YSL version is a better product. I'm going to have to check that one out. My more detailed review and swatches can be seen here:

Treatments (Face) -Lancome -Absolue Precious Cells Revitalizing Rose Lotion Toner

on 2/23/2018 6:46:00 AM


Launched in January 2018, this is a gelled toner/treatment lotion that appears thicker and less fluid than a normal toner.

Its exceptional visual effect is one part of the pleasure it can give, since the real rose petals are suspended in this somewhat thicker pink coloured gel.

However, the formula is exceptionally hydrating and gives a visibly pumped effect after application.
I use it morning and night as a treatment lotion and apply with fingertips directly to the skin.

The only drawback is that the gel is too thick to be dispersed easily from the opening of the bottle. A pump would have been a more practical solution, although aesthetically the packaging might not have been as striking as it is today.

Treatments (Face) -Lancome -Absolue Precious Cells Nourishing & Revitalizing Rose Face Mask

on 2/23/2018 6:39:00 AM


Launched in January 2018, this gelled mask that is infused with Rose flower water and contains rose hip can be used as an immediate booster when one needs more hydration and glowing skin.

While the formula seems to be a simple one, it manages to deliver literally immediate results for a refreshed, more even and glowing skin that looks visibly hydrated.
I experienced that this hydration is lasting for about 12 hours. To achieve a continuous effect, I would recommend using the product in the morning and evening after applying serum before moisturizer. Ideally, one should wait 5 minutes before applying moisturizer.
I have seldom time to wait and have applied moisturizer right after the mask. This mask truly delivers even without waiting!
I have used this mask every morning and evening for the past month and cannot stop appreciating the amazing results it manages to deliver!

Price is steep for a gel with very little else than rose water and some rose extract along with the rose hip extract, yet it is a true gem that should be given a try.

It’s been a lifesaver for my dry/combination skin. Bit pricy, but it’s been the only thing that has worked when I get dry patches on my face.
