So surprised! This is the ONLY serum I've ever recommended. I have oily acne prone skin so they all break me out. Except this one which really truly made my pores so much smaller in just days. Also it has evened out some red spots I had from healed bumps. My skin looks amazing! Like no foundation needed amazing.
This burned me very badly. I tried it at macys and within seconds needed to run to find a baby wipe to wash my face. Then I headed to the bathroom to splash water on my face. It was still burning into the evening. I had to moisturize with Vaseline at night for 2 days... All that for a product that spent 20 seconds on my skin.
For science I had a sephora sample and put a tiny bit on my forehead to gage a reaction. Again BURNING
LOVE this serum! Didn't think I would ..... But I do. I have been using Lancome's Genifique Advanced Concentrate for several months and it has done wonders for my skin - my skin is more luminous and even toned, and age spots/acne marks faded significantly. Genifique has made such a HUGE improvement in my skin tone, but I needed something to address my skin texture. I have large pores (oily skin), fine lines (42 years old) and overall uneven skin texture (too many years of harsh acne products, etc...). A Lancome Rep put a deluxe sample of Visionnaire in my bag 2 weeks ago, and so I figured I would try it out.
I apply Genifique first (all over, even around eyes), then Visionnaire (also all over, even around eyes), then eye cream. I have oily skin so I don't use another moisturizer on top ... The 2 serums are enough moisture for me. I did this twice a day, morning and night immediately after cleansing for the last 2 weeks. And holy moly! The difference in my skin is amazing! In 2 weeks my pores are so much smaller and more refined, my fine lines are diminished (especially the tiny fine lines under my eyes), and my unevenly textured skin has become smooth as a baby's bottom! Honestly, between the Genifique and the Visionnaire, my skin looks amazing! I am sooooo pleased with this combo and will continue using both!
In fact, I went back to the Lancome counter today and purchased the largest size Visionnaire they had. The Rep gushed about how great it is .... and I have to agree!
Granted, everyone's skin is different, and what works for one person may not work for another, but my advice to anyone considering Visionnaire would be ..... Go get a sample of Visionnaire and test it out to see how you like it. Ask for a deluxe size sample in the little jar (will last a week or two depending how much you use), not the sample packet (like 2 days worth), that way you can try it before you buy it, because it is expensive. I love it!!! :)
I have such mixed feelings about this serum. I love it because for me if I get a spot and pop it and I put this serum on it. The zit I kid you not by morning is flat! Whatever that ingredient is at 34 years of age it seems to work for my skin. The price is what I cannot justify especially when there are dupes like L'Oreal who owns Lancome. There new Age Perfect has a smaller amount of the LR2412. It's not 4% but it does have it so, if this works for your skin there are alternatives. I got a deluxe sample and am milking it for all it's worth. Using it only as a spot treatment to save it. I see samples online for like 5$ or I did find the 1ounce for 60 something but I just cannot justify purchasing it.
It does work for me. So I have to give it a good review because it has worked when none of the products in my skincare arsenal would. Especially the hormonal zits which this seems to work very well on. In my case its like a love/hate relationship because there are dupes. For me though they have been hard to find. I'm going to try the L'Oreal if it works sweet if not I'll break down and get another deluxe sample since when I'm in a skin crisis I cannot go without this! If you have the cash I still say try a sample. If you have hormonal skin this just might work for you.
First of all ... yes, i am 22 and i am aware that i do not need wrinkle correction creams or any other products for that matter.
I got this because i initially thought it would kill or at least help make my expression lines not so proeminent and also help my very dry skin be more elastic.
I have to admit i do not use it on a regular basis, i usually put it on like 3 days a week on clean skin before i go to sleep.
Texture is soft and a bit liquidy, it is not a dense cream, it absorbs almost instantly and it leaves the skin soft & hydrated.
It has a scent to it, its not anything strong or overbearing but it is there.
How it works? It works perfectly to calm dry skin and to give it a natural radiance and elasticity but my fine lines are still there, i feel they did get better but still there and well i have been using this for over 6 month, now it doesnt really bother me personally because again, i am 22 ... i do not know how it will work for a lady over 40 that being said but i am very satisfied with it for making my dry skin elastic, recharged and happy. Dry skin can really be a pain sometimes and this has helped a lot.
Now i know there are a lot of products specially made just for dry skin but believe me i have tried them and this is by far the best thing. This, coconut oil and marigold cream bring my skin to life :) ... of course Visionaire is ten times the price of those last 2 but its easy to use and does wonders, at least it does for me.
Yes i will repurchace.
I got a sample of this and tried it on half of one of my forehead lines for several weeks (gotta be scientific about this before plunking down such a huge chunk of change). Speaking of change... there was none. No noticeable difference after several weeks of daily use.
Enjoyed the free samples I received with my many gifts with purchase. Was tossing around the idea of Botox or some sort of filler when I turned 43 a few weeks ago. Opted to get a full size bottle and splurge on this item before going the more expensive painful route. I've been using it for over a 6 months now and noticed a real improvement in my skin pores, more luminous, it even improved or smoothed out the scrinkly skin under my eyes. Leaves a nice silky feeling after if soaks into your skin. Soaks in really fast too. I sometimes just wear it alone on my skin it makes my skin look that great. I regularly use this with my Lancôme high resolution moisturizer. Visionnaire even great to use around your eyes and in crease brow bone. The bottle is very nice too. A little goes a long way.
I won't be buying Visionnaire again. Still waiting to find a serum which I can actually see a difference with. The price of the serum is outlandish, but I thought that if it worked and I was happier with my skin after it, it might just be worth it. Had a sample first, the tube lasted maybe 5 days which wasn't exactly long enough to notice a real change, so I bought the bottle. It lasted a month, I got two more samples of it when I bought it and those lasted me around 2 weeks, so all in all I had it for 6 weeks. Saw no difference. Woke up with the same complexion each morning. May as well have been putting on water! it's quite sticky on the skin as well and made my face feel a bit tight for the first while after application, and it smells like chemicals. I dunno, for me it just doesn't cut it. For the price it needs to do amazing things and it just didn't. Much prefer Clarins double serum, it's pricey too but it's fresher, not sticky and smells more natural.
I received a HEFTY bag of samples from my counter girl and among them were 4 samples of this product. This was applied to my face during a "makeover" and I loved the fragrance! I did feel a slight tingling but nothing severe. After using this product for 3 days at home, I'm no longer a fan. My skin has started to break out like a pubescent girl in high school. I'm not talking a mild break out, dolls. I'm talking legit painful mountains on my face!!! Also, I have been feeling a burning sensation that increases with each use. Tonight is my very last use! It's a shame since this product has done wonders for my girl friends.
This did not break me out or burn my skin like others have said & I have sensitive skin ..I got this as a sample and although I love the way it makes me skin look I would not purshace a full size as the loreal skin perfector is exactly the same and a lot cheaper it does make my skin appear smooth and my pores do looked reduced but in the long run this will not actually make my skin better in any way it will only appear to look better which is not want I'm looking for its a good primer if you've got money to burn then yeah go buy it
