Bought it when it first came out. This is absolutely no use. Didn't improve anything at all.
I have been using this product for over a month now and have found that it has made a significant difference to my skin. I had bad acne about 2 years ago and it left alot of scarring on my face. I had big pores especially around the nose and my skin tone was very dull. At first the product really dried out my face but I switched cleansers to the Lancome Douceur Galateis and its toner and the drying stopped. I use the Visionaire during the day under my spf moisturiser and make up, and at night under the Hydra Zen night cream.
The texture is smooth and goes on the skin easily without leaving an oily residue. Smell is pleasant and light.
My skin now is alot more even and has gotten lighter. The texture is great. My pores have gotten slightly smaller. Combine this with a good skin care regime involving cleanse, tone, serum and moisturise day and night; exfoliation every 2-3 days and a cleansing mud mask once a week and this product will work. To reduce pore size you must cleanse, tone and exfoliate otherwise no serum will work its magic. No product will work overnight so you must be patient.
The only set back is the packaging because it is an opaque pump bottle which means i cannot see how much i have left. And also it is quite expensive. I purchased the 30 mL from Myer for $92. The sales reps recommend using this with the Visionaire night cream which i am yet to try.
I purchased this half price from an online retailer. I'm really glad I paid 1/2 price. I've been using it for 6 weeks and while it feels lovely on your skin (like velvet) it certainly does nothing for pores or skin quality on my skin at least. Saw Lancome sales assistant yesterday and she said it only really works if you put Geneifique serum under it, then another Lancome moisturizer on top. Well, I'm not spending another $180 to make a $200 product work. Save your money, just get a good all round pharmacy moisturizer and invest in fractionated laser instead. Believe me, 20 minutes of irritating zapping is much more effective than rubbing in expensive creams twice a day.
I am on my second bottle of this and i really did not see any significant results as promised. i gave the product 12 weeks so i can really judge to see if i notice anything different, but i really didn't. for the $108 price tag, i was hoping to get more out of it. i tried it several ways, with my other serums, without my other skin products, alone, etc. the only thing i noticed was my skin was a bit smoother but i did not see the radiance or "glow" it advertised. i will finish up my bottle b/c i don't want to waste it but would not repurchase. i am sure there are other serums out there that performs better w/o the $$$ price tag.
I have been using this product for a month now with my Chanel hydra beauty gel cream. I didn't see any much improvement in my skin. I was hoping it to minimize my pores but for my disappointment my pore size remains same. It has helped to reduced my laugh lines and my foundation looks flawless over it. Overall this product has failed to meet my expectation. I will recommend this product only if you have wrinkles.
I had a makeup-artist use this on me recently, and it instantly felt soooo amazing on my skin that I immediately bought it, in spite of the ridiculous price. I am shocked to find myself loving this product, because I have always been a less is more gal when it comes to skin care. Coconut oil and clean, uncomplicated moisturizers have been my thing for years now. I was actually not very happy to have this stuff put on my face, as I always resent the chemicals and scents. Imagine my dismay to learn that, for me, this product makes my skin look fresh and glowy almost instantly. I'm kind of scared to evaluate the ingredients, because the results on my particular skin is dramatic. It has become a must-have. Go figure.
I love Lancome products in general and I have been using them for 10 years. This is fairly expensive product so I usually get it for my birthday or Christmas wishlist, therefore, it tends to last for 6 months. This serum is reduces my pores within 3 weeks, wrinkles around the eyes not as much, and skin correction evenness is pretty good. Overall I like this product, but it's the price point that's to high. Thanks for reading.
I have always had minor problems with my skin - uneven tone, small wrinkles, sometimes blemishes, etc. The Visionnaire magically removes ALL of them, can be used all over the face, including the eye area (especially the eye area, it removes the small lines around the eyes, puffiness and dark circles).
Few minutes after using it, it just makes your skin glow, even with no other products applied. And it smells wonderfully.
The price is a big concern, of course, but you can make up for it by using tiny amounts (you really don't need more than a drop as big as a pea for your entire face).
I recommend it to all of my friends and love it!
I bought this on recommendation of Nordstrom SA as a treatment to use after Clarisonic Mia, which I use a few times a week. Now, i don't know if it is solely the serum, or a combo of the serum and the Clarisonic, but my skin looks terrific! I been using twice a day for about three weeks and find that my face is more even-toned and luminous. It glides on like silk so just a pump & 1/2 covers face and neck. Moisturizer and makeup go on smoothly after. Very pleased with this and will repurchase.
Got a sample from GWP. I had high hopes for this product. I used it for about a week, then it broke me out in little pimples. It was the only thing new I added to my routine, so I know it was this. YUCK.
