I am very surprised by all the negative reviews! This is my personal fave as far as skin care is concerned (at least right now ☺️). For me, I've noticed reduced pore size, reduced redness around my cheeks and smoother feeling skin.

Because I bought so many Lancome bags I had many tiny samples of this and I have had over a year to judge its efficacy. I have to say that I will never buy the full size at $120 because it simply is not worth that. It feels nice and sinks in leaving a temporary glow and a refreshed feeling, but it doesn't improve or change the skin in any way over time. I hate to say these serums and potions don't work, but nothing I tried has reduced the "appearance of wrinkles" or improved the texture of my aging skin at all. I have equal results (moisturized skin, improved texture and glow, slight plumping of wrinkles) using any moisturizer. It's hard to bear the truth that the $6 jar of Ponds dry skin cream is as good or better for my face than these deluxe serums made in French laboratories, but I have to face facts. I tried the Genifique also and liked it but it too did nothing real for my skin. These have a cachet of beauty and elegance and I always expect a real improvement but it just does not happen. I will grade this with two stars because it is enjoyable to use and it doesn't have a bad scent, but it's poor value and doesn't deliver its false promises.

I got this as a gift with purchase and gave it a trial run in my T-Zone where I have pore problems. I looked up the ingredients a few days into using it and it has Denatured alcohol as the fourth ingredient! I immediately stopped use as that could do more harm than good to my skin. It was tested on lab rats and it caused collagen breakdown with prolonged use. The very thing any of us ladies do not need. Why would Lancome make such a thing? I do not have a problem with trivial amounts in some products but that was way too much. Do yourself a favor and stay away.

The shop assistant swore by this product that it would help my acne prone skin and that I will see a difference. I didn't.

The product itself is like a normal face cream, not too nourishing not too drying..just a normal layer of innocent product on my face. It smells amazing though, probably the only reason why I keep using it.

It feels really lightweight when applied, very luxurious, I sometimes use it at night after I apply toner, but it doesn't do anything to my skin or my acne. If it was cheaper I would have repurchased it just to apply it when I'm not in the mood for moisturizer, but at this price I would never buy it again.

This serum is like the popular Visionnaire [1-minute] Blur on a diet: lighter & thinner. It smells just like it too. The serum is almost gel-like and is somewhat easy to smooth onto the face. I had a semi-deluxe sample that provided maybe about 3-4 uses, which is enough for me to see if my skin reacts to it or if I like the overall texture/smell/feel, but its not enough to see any major changes to my skin. I guess besides being dry/dehydrated during winters and oily during summers, my skin is pretty normal and Ive been able to keep wrinkles at bay. Like some of the other reviewers, I am lucky to have skin that keeps me looking like Im in my late 20s, even though Im inching to my mid-30s. It temporarily smoothed and softened my skin, but that didnt last all day. I dont think this would be something Id add to my regimen since the price is quite high at $85-$115 and it didnt wow me like some other products have. It could be a good alternative to use as a skin-smoothing base if the 1 minute blur is too thick for you.

The Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector is one of the best products I have ever used! A bit pricey but worth the money. Also top rated by

Eyes: Blue I am a beauty product junkie, I am 31 years old and over the course of the last 12 years I have spent literally thousands of pounds on lotions and potions, creams serums and make-up that all promise to make me look better and thus feel better about myself. I have tried just about every brand there is from very expensive creams such as chanel's sublimage and Crme de la mer to Olay's regenerist and loreal youth code.....i have purchased and used (and dismissed) literally 100s of skin care products over the years. I am not about to tell you that all of them where bad as some of them where quite good...but....I haven't once yet tried a product that has kept every promise it made and this is the reason I have spent many frustrating years and thousands of pounds of my hard earned cash fliting from one "ok" product to another "ok" product in the hope that my most recent skin care purchase would actually deliver and keep all of its promises....unfortunately I still have not found that product :( BUT this is honestly the closest I have ever ever come to that perfect skin care product. Now everybody's skin is different so one product will never suit everyone so I will tell you about my skin. I have fair skin that is oily in places whilst dry and sensitive in others and prone to acne breakouts and have uneven texture with little bumps under the skin :( I also have some pigmentation and expression lines. The thing that bothers me the most is my 31 I shouldn't have to be dealing with acne and my combination skin and age make it so so difficult to treat because when I use an acne treatment it dries out the areas of my skin that are already dry so much that I get red patches and flakes that mean make up application is impossible. And products that over dry my skin will accelerate the aging process and I already have fine lines. If on the other hand I opt for a product that is moisturising/anti aging it breaks me out something bad:( That just isnt fair mother nature....come on?! lines and wrinkles OR spots but not both!! That's just below the belt! Anyhow I had almost completely given up on moisturisers and serums etc..because I haven't found one yet that didn't either, break me out, dry me out or just caused a really bad reaction until now :) now I love lancome tient idole ultra foundation (brill foundation if you have skin like mine) and when I was at the lancome counter repurchasing my foundation I got talking to the assistant about my badly behaved skin and her face lit up and she began rummaging under the counter for samples and she gave me three 5ml samples of this serum. I think she could tell by my face that I was unconvinced and probably wouldn't use them as tbh I just cant be bothered with the extra spots, dryness, redness ect....but she practically begged me to give it a I did. To my complete amazement this product actually works...I mean its my holy grail skin care product it that good. Within a couple of weeks my skins texture is soft smooth and supple, because my skin is more hydrated and plump lines appear less defined. Pigmentation has improved and best of all my acne is soooo much better...its amazing! I find myself waking up and rushing to the mirror every morning to make sure its still working and that its not just a coincidence that my skin decided to clear up and act normal for a couple of weeks at round about the same time I started using this lol but no...its definitely this serum working its magic! My skin honestly looks more radiant smooth dewy and clear than it has ever looked! I have little panic attacks now thinking what will I do if they stop making it? Just love it. But it doesn't completely shrink pores or erase wrinkles but to be fair I think that is impossible to achieve with any cream anyway...just have to accept that im not 21 anymore. I did notice that a lot of the positive reviews on this product seem to be from people who suffer from adult acne and combination skin and it certainly works for me so if you have this skin type ( I really do feel for you) give it a go . The other down side 82 for 50ml!! But for me its worth every penny :) I will continue to buy and if I ever hear they are planning to discontinue I will have to sell my house and stock pile this product lol

I'm not going to sit here and bash the product and write that it doesn't work, it does......BUT for the amount of money you are paying you EXPECT it to work better.

I am in my 30's and I started taking care of my skin as soon as I hit my 20's. No one can ever guess my age simply because I don't look my age at all. Perhaps thats why I don't notice to much effectiveness in the product when it comes to wrinkles since I really don't have any. However, I do have some problems with large pores in some parts of my face and having used this product for a while now I didn't noticed too much of a difference in my pores.

What I did noticed is that my skin is very smooth (you can see it and feel it). My skin has a very beautiful glow, my skin texture has gotten even better and if applied before makeup, your makeup will look smooth, will blend better, will look more natural and your skin will look radiant and healthy.

I am happy with this product. The reason I'm giving this product a 3 is simply because the main reason I bought it was to get my pores smaller and it has not done that whatsoever and for the price you are paying it should do what it claims to do.

I'm editing my original review. I decided to purchase this product in a full size bottle because I did notice a difference in regards to my pore size. I was worried that this might be attributed to the silcones, however I have used other primers such as Dermalogica and MAC and they did not make my skin look this nice. When I have this on under makeup, my skin looks smoother and pores look smaller.
So I decided after years of suffering with acne, and using product after product that did not live up to any of their claims, that anything which makes me feel even the slightest bit better about my skin is worth the investment. Even if that meant forking out $100 for an amazing primer (and I'm a university student so I don't have much disposable income).
However, after using this product for 3 and half weeks, I can say I'm noticing more great changes in my skin! Firstly, I'm rarely getting breakouts, so this must not have been the cause of the breakouts I compained of originally as its the only product I'm currently using.
Secondly, my skin tone is looking more even and my acne scars look like they're fading faster than ever. It's only been within the last few days that I've been waking up feeling like my skin is actually improving, so I'd say this product definitely needs 3 weeks to see anything (and the changes are small, but noticeable). I'm really excited and hope these results continue. If they do, I'll bump this rating up to 5. But for now, the progress is noticeable, but slow so I'll give it a 4. I can safely say, this product has been the only one to give me noticeable results, and I've used everything!

I also just want to say that if you suffer from really oily skin like I do, then you might need more vitamin D! I actually just randomly started supplementing with it as it's winter here in Australia and I don't get much sunshine. After 3 days, I noticed I wasn't needing to blot my face with powder as much, if at all. The difference was incredibly noticeable, I honestly can't believe it myself and I'm so happy I can stop beating myself up about everything bad I eat! Even my hair has been less oily. I'm going to get a blood test to check my vitamin D, but currently I'm taking around 2,000-4,000IU daily. Make sure it's
D3 as well, I'm using Blackmores for reference. It's truly amazing, and there is science behind why a deficiency effects sebum levels, as Vitamin D is actually a hormone. Google it if you're interested as I'm probably not the best at explaining it :) I would have to say, between the Lancome and the vitamin D, I'm the happiest I've ever been with my skin! I'm certain the vitamin D is to thank for helping my oily skin as I've only noticed the difference in my oil production when I started supplementing it. I hope this helps someone, as I know how much oily/acne prone skin can really get you down and hurt your self esteem!

It seems people either love or hate this product! I bought a deluxe sample off ebay because of the mixed reviews and the hefty price tag. I've only been using it for about a 2 weeks, but I've been using it morning and night. The product does have a distinct smell which I happen to like, but I'd still prefer no fragrance as I feel it's an unnecessary, potentially irritating ingredient. I'm also a little bit concerned about the amount of alcohol. I know many say alcohol is actually not harmful for skin, and it's my understanding that it helps the active ingredients to penetrate the skin more effectively. However, I do find alcohol very drying and when my skin get stripped, it produces more oil.
When I first applied this product, I thought my skin looked great! Even when I woke up the next day, I thought my skin looked clearer and more luminous. I was set on running out and purchasing this product as soon as my sample was gone.
It works very much like a primer because it smooths over skin (silicone) and includes mica which illuminates skin. So skin definitely looks nicer once applied.
However, after a while my skin was getting oilier and oilier. I was also started having more breakouts on my cheeks and forehead. Nothing too crazy, but just little whiteheads that are very annoying.
It's a difficult product to review because my skin definitely looks nicer when I have it on (and I use it morning and night, so I've basically got it on all day and night) but I'm not convinced it's doing much more than a primer would. The one thing I've noticed is that my pores appear smaller with this on, but this Might just be the silicones? It's hard to say. I was under the impression pores can't be made smaller.
In saying all of that, I also believe skin products need more than 2 weeks to see their effectiveness, but it's hard to continue when your face is breaking out and getting oilier! I'm going to finish the rest of my sample, and I will update if anything changes within the next week, but so far I wouldn't repurchase. I would also recommend getting a sample because it's obviously a very hit or miss product and it's quite expensive!

This is highly fragranced (even by Lancome standards), and terribly drying. I can't imagine it would be good for anyone in the market for what it claims to fix: wrinkles, pores, evenness. I suppose my skin was more even in that by morning this leaves it uniformly parched and dull, but I don't think that's what anyone is striving for. As previous reviewers have noted, it's not really the consistency of a serum - it is silkier and more silicone-y. It almost felt like a hair product. It doesn't feel like it absorbs well but sits on top of the skin. The damage that this inflicted is not something I would do to my skin by choice, and certainly not at this price point.
