I've been taking great care of my skin since the 7th grade when alpha hydroxy acids were all the rage. I then switched to using retinol creams once those became popular. I've tried tons of creams and serums out there and this one is the BEST I've tried. I'm now 32 years old. People guess me to be in my early to mid 20's. I still get carded at bars all the time (yay!). I've been using this product for over 6 months now, and I would never go without it. I have somewhat oily skin with large pores and redness/blotchiness on my cheeks and a few acne scars. This product has addressed ALL of those issues for me. My fine lines are mostly gone and any larger ones have softened greatly! My pores have gotten noticably smaller, redness/blotchiness is GONE and some scars have lightened up. I would NEVER leave the house without makeup before...but now I definatelly could. My T-zone used to be an oil-slick by the end of the day and now I don't even need to blot at the end of the day (bonus: it's not a listed benefit, but definately a welcome one!) I am dumbfounded at the negative reviews. I adore Visionarre and hope they never stop making it. Worth every penny....it lasts a long time and you don't need a lot of product per application.
I have been using this product for nearly 5 months and every time I run out, even if for a few days, I notice just how big of a difference it makes! I have been a faithful addict of the entire Lancome skincare & makeup line as it is the only thing that keeps my acne at bay, and I couldn't be happier when they came out with Visionnaire!
My skin at the start of using this product included some fine expression lines, oily, acne-prone skin, and, as a result, very large visible pores. Although botox and a laser peel/PDT have eliminated my expression lines, pores and majority of my breakouts (I have come to understand that only actual procedures have the power to do so), thanks to using Visionnaire, my skin was significantly smoother, much much less oily, more even-toned and clearer both before and continuously after the procedures.
I believe that although Visionnaire didn't cause me to "postpone a medical procedure" as the ads claim - it calmed my skin down significantly prior to them and has been my HG product in keeping my skin glowy, smooth & even afterwards.
I loved the sample I recieved. I could tell an immediate difference. I waited for Macy's to have a with purchase give away, and I bought Visionnaire, and I got near full size products of face cream and eye cream. The face cream is HD, something. It is just okay,. but that's a totally different review.
At first I noticed a difference, fine lines gone, skin smooth, nice texture. I have been blessed with nonproblem skin, throughout my life. I wanted to keep it that way. I was thinking about a smoothing treatment, when I saw the ad for Visionnaire in a beauty magazine I subscribe to. I bought Visionnaire cause I thought it'd be better than my Neutragena night cream. The sample complimented it significantly. It's been nearly 3 weeks, and I began to notice, this week, that it doesn't seem to be effective. The Lancome associate said I only needed to use it at night, and the instructions, for the price are lame. So I'll start using it in the morning as well. I am 50, and I want a serum that is predictable. I think I will try Juice Green Apple Beauty Stem after this bottle of Visionnaire is finished. At the rate I'm using it, it should only be a few more weeks, or I might just give it to my mom. It was 88.00, but I got an excellent gift with purchase, so it was kind of worth the money, in that way. I don't think I'll buy it again. It doesn't do what it says it does. Shame on Lancome. After reading all the "con" reviews, you'd think they'd notice.
I've been using this for almost 4 months so far and I have to say that I am extremely disappointed in it. The best result I see from this is that my skin is super soft and supple when I wake up in the morning from it. It does feel tightening after you apply it but I have no visible pores on my face but my nose however has visible pores and I have not seen a change or difference in it since using this. This product burns around the lips and nose and makes the skin around my nose peel and crack. This also work horrible under makeup, it just makes your foundation pill and peel off since this product leave a tacky film that sits on top of your skin. Overall, I have not noticed a change in wrinkles, pores, and evenness even though the evenness is the main claim I bought this product for. I have 2 bottles of this in the 1.7oz, 50ml size and once I'm done with the second bottle in the next month or so I may update my review if I feel my opinions have changed. One last thing you should know is that the sample and gift set sizes of Visionnaire you receive from Lancome counters or such is made in USA and has a stronger fragrance. The full size bottles you purchase at retail are made in France and have a very very strong alcohol scent. The sample/gift samples I received that were made in USA made my skin very nice and glowy and radiant which led me to purchase the full size which smells strongly of alcohol and made my skin burn and crack and peel.
I don't know why I bought this and didn't buy something from PRT or do some more research. It doesn't work. I have not seen any difference to
my skin and on top of that I feel ripped off. I really, honestly think this
product is junk. I've just finished the bottle and for the $105 plus tax that I spent I want to see results like we all do. Save your money and look for something else, Visionnaire didn't make any changes for me.
I started using this product with high hopes and a new iPad 2. I decided to take pictures of myself with my iPad in order to have a record of what I was counting on being improvement in the appearance of my skin at the very least and maybe even promises fulfilled. I have used it without fail day and night for exactly three months and there is absolutely NO change in the appearance of my skin. Not only am I really disappointed, I am also feeling robbed! Truly a world class rip off.
What this product is supposed to do: on the surface, wrinkles and pores are visibly corrected, imperfections like signs of UV damage and acne marks appear diminished after 4 weeks of consumer use. Results not equal to a medical procedure.
My skin type: oily/acne-prone, no visible wrinkles, medium sized pores on forehead, cheeks, and chin areas
What this product did for me: I really wanted to wait a whole 4 wks til I wrote a review on this product, but after 2 wks I've noticed some really good things going on with my skin. I've been using this every morning and every other night. I've noticed that when I use this in the morning, my face is considerably less oily than usual. I've also noticed, as well, that my face does seem to have a smoother texture. As far as smaller pores, pores CANNOT technically get smaller, meaning that no matter what OTC cream you buy, your actual pore diameter can't be changed. However you can make them LOOK SMALLER, and to be honest, when I put this on without makeup, if I don't get really close to my mirror, I really don't see them as bad. But that's with only 2 wks of use. I'm currently starting a Tretinoin micro-sphere gel treatment for my clogged pores, and since Tretinoin is clinically proven to reduce facial imperfections, I will not be able to review this product alone's effect on my pores and skin tone/texture. I also never broke out within 2 weeks of use of this product or did I see any new clogged pores or blackheads. And my skin did appear to be 'brighter' when I used this and some post acne marks did seam to fade well in the 2 wks of use. Even though the price is pretty steep, I will continue to use this as I like the way it helps cut down on my greasy face, how smooth it makes my face feel, and how it actually makes my skin look 'fresher' without makeup on
Verdict: If you are looking for some miracle pore minimizer, this will not do what you want it to do. Realistically, you would have to have some type of medical type procedure done by a dermatologist for those type of expectations. This product will, however, help to make the appearance of your skin look smoother and brighter, but results for everyone will be different. I think this is also for ppl with oily skin bc I noticed a decrease in my grease on my face, but again, everyone and every skin type is different, so results will be too. This is pretty expensive, so this might not be the best serum for some compared to realistic results. Before you buy this, I strongly suggest that you get a sample or 2 before you go clean out your wallet on something that may or may not work for you :)
slight improvement in skin tone in about 3 weeks(sample+ purchased bottle). good packaging but very expensive. might have to finish the whole bottle before commenting on the overall results!
Its a great product. I don't think I would buy it again because it is reallyyy expensive, but since i have been using it over Genefique, I have had even glowy perfect skin.
May repurchase when I get older lol but for now, it's an unnecessary, overpriced luxury.
I used this product for three weeks about four months ago. I saw an improvement in the quality of my skin. I stopped using it as I could not afford it anymore. Four months later I have an abundance of extra lines on my face. I reverted to my normal skin care regime, Clinique, cleanser, toner and moisturiser. I will never touch this product again. I am now trying Roche-Posay redermic but try to reverse the damage this treatment has done. Very disappointed. I would never buy it again. Will review Roche after several months.
