ok..........so 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 Crème 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 acne....im 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 go....so 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'sD3 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.

I got a mini-sample bottle of this. All I have to say is how can anyone call this a serum??? It is mainly alcohol, parabens, dehydrating ingredients put into a fancy bottle for a crazy amount of price. Why would anyone put sth like that on their face for night treatment? IT HAS NO HEALING INGREDIENTS!!!The only nice thing about this is the texture due to one of the silicone ingredients that it has in it that makes it go on smooth so it will give a primer-type finish, filling pores.Having dry skin this ruined my face overnight. I woke up and my face looked so dull, no glow and red around nose and was stretching. I should have checked the consistency before putting it on... Luckly I'm in my early 20s so my skin heals faster but I don't know what would have happened if I had decided to give this as a gift to my mom who has dry and mature skin. HORRIBLE!!!

Tried a sample (luckily) before I bought. Applied to face and within seconds, my face was on fire. Felt like it had been hit with a blow torch. Had to run to wash it off quick.

I was given a sample of this product when I purchased another Lancome product. When I first tried it out, I did not know really what the reviews and claims it had. I was thinking it would just soften my skin a bit and I had no real high expectations. To give some background of my skin, I am 31 years old, fair and I have some acne scars, some enlarged pores around my cheeks and chin and I have hormonal acne often. After just a few days of using the product morning and night, my acne scars started to fade away, my acne started to clear up and my enlarged pores tightened up significantly. I have never in my ENTIRE life have I had such amazing results. My skin is glowing and is really starting to look..well..perfect. It is amazing stuff. After using my 2 weeks sample, I went out and purchased the large 50ml size. Yes this stuff is expensive, but to me it was life changing, I am so much more confident with my skin and wearing less foundation then ever before. This product also claims to reduce wrinkles, I've yet to see any big differences. I do have some fine lines on my forehead, so I will update this review after a few months to see if there is a difference.

I have commented before on this awesome product by Lancome, but " a picture is worth a thousand words!" Please find my photo on FB - Patti Donnelly-Arnold....pretty good for an old lady of 54 on her feet for 9 hours! Lancome to the rescue.

This product is amazing... No matter if you're oily or dry or even combination! I worked with Lancôme for a very long time and I truly believe that when I use this I get amazing results.. The key thing with this serum is that you have to use it everyday to get results or else you'll see nothing change. I love the texture of it! Very smooth and easy to blend... Plus the nice thing is how well the pump is made!! Very user friendly and it helps conserve the product because it doesn't distribute to much at a time! The smell is very pleasant!! Not strong what so ever which is nice because I'm sensitive to a lot of different fragrances! I had a lot of acne scaring and freckles and I'm not going to lie and say that I put it on my face and the next morning I had Jennifer Lopez's face.. But I will say it faded all of them and only a few spots are still noticeable but it's partly my fault because I get lazy with my routine which isn't a good thing if someone wants results plus it's kind of wasteful not to use it everyday and trust me this serum is very expensive.. The nice thing is a little goes a long way!!! I would recommend you go to your local Lancôme counter and get a sample of this!! Trust me!! It's great!
