I got oily skin and within 45 mins after applying product my face get even oilier. its doesnt help and no visible effect after half a bottle ( i applied everynight after Genifique) . maybe it works better on dry and mature skin i m not too sure.
This lancome product had a pretty good affect on my skin, and i am totally grateful for this product! it didn't break me out in the least bit (i have VERY VERY sensitive skin!) but it actually soothed out the rough skin lines on my cheeks and brightened up my overall complexion! i will definitely buy this product again when it runs out! mwah!
I was really interested in this product but was slightly put off by the reviews, for the price I would have expected it to get 5* ratings everywhere. I got a 1 week sample from Lancome and I was really amazed by the results so I have actually purchased the product. My review is based on my one week usage of Visionnaire so I cannot give you full information on its long term results but so far I am very happy. The formulation is light and it has a lovely fresh smell, upon application, the serum just melts into your skin and creates a very smooth base for application of moisturizer. I have combination skin so I use it with Lancome Bienfait Aqua Vital mositurizer to get optimal hydration. The Visionnaire works as a great smoothing primer for make-up application, after a few days I really noticed how smooth and creamy my skin looked. Even after working all day my skin never became greasy. Even my boyfriend commented that my skin looked glowing! This is a great product and I would highly recommend if you want to give you skin a boost.
Overpriced. I could have bought pure hyaluronic acid, it's that expensive.. Visionnaire gives perfectly smooth, glowy skin but I won't pay the same price for the second product.
I am honestly shocked at the low rating this product has. I really love it. Not to mention the fact that it has won several awards, Self healthy beauty award, Marie Claire, Beauty Inc, Allure top beauty product 2012, 2011 excellent beauty product ward, etc. These are just a few of the awards listed in an a Beauty magazine that I was looking at that posted this product as a top beauty pick. Not sure what everyone here is not seeing in this product that everyone else does. Just thought I would mention that for anyone reading this that is thinking of purchasing, dont be persuaded by the low repurchase percentage here. Anyway, now about the product:
First off, packaging, this comes in a green bottle. Its pretty typical for what you would expect a Lancome product to come in, its nice and visually appealing. I noticed a few reviewers complaining about the amount of product you receive, this contains 1 fl oz, witch is actually standard for this type of product. I think the sleek design of this packaging can be deceptive, it is not a jar or a bulky glass pump container that we are used to associating with skincare products. I like the s;im profile of this container, its not heavy and can be transported easily for travel.
The product itself is a refreshing change from the usual. The consistancy is very silky, sort of a creamy serum, not too light or thick, just perfect. It applies nicely, feels very smooth and satiny and does not leave the face oily or sticky. It absorbs well, but is moisturizing as well. One thing that I really love about this product is that it acts as sort of an illuminizer, giving your complexion that lit from within look, but does this without the sparkles or glitter that most illuminizing products contain. I knew this product was different and I would love it the moment I squirted it in my palm, it is irredescent, like a pearl and a beautiful peachy color, like a peach pearl. It is simply beautiful and has a nice fragrance. the scent is not too stronge or light, just enough to make application pleasant.
It leaves my face smooth, satiny, soft and glowing. It works as a corrector, sort of like a primer to blur imperfections and just makes your skin look overall better and healthier. I cannot attest to any long term benifits, as I do not use this product that way. I do not apply this twice or even once every day. I use this on days that I do not wear makeup, I apply this and then a TM and my face looks fab. I use it as a complexion booster/fixer.
I have already repurchased this once after running out and will continue to repurchase.
I received a generous sample of this product and it was sitting in my sample box for months. I finally decided to give it a go not expecting anything other than a travel friendly moisturizer for my work trip.
I am thoroughly impressed with this product, and now I think I might just have to get the full size.
- Had a massive "under the skin" pimple that I could not resist picking at and had left a massive scab/bump on my face. This healed the pimple in 4 days when normally it takes about 2 weeks for my skin to heal when I pick at "under the skin" pimples.
- my skin is much much smoother, my pores feel and look smaller, I havent broken out since using it (all of these results in a little over a week of use!)
-get a healthy "glow" when I wake up from using this
- i really feel with prolonged use I can get my skin back to what it was 5 years ago... even, without blochiness, less break outs, smaller pores, and less oiliness
-Overall, great product and I recommend it for anyone with any issue of any kind!
- not fragrance free has a light flower type smell which can be irritating to certain skin types
-the serum has sort of a pinkish glitter type look to it (no glitter or sparkle on face once applied) but I find that strange
-serum consistency so dryer and dehydated skin types should probably follow up with regular moisturizer.
I started on this with sample tubes from GWP. I liked the scent and that my skin absorbed it. When my last tube ran out, I decided to throw caution to the wind and buy a full size bottle.
All told, I've been using it day and night for about 3-4 weeks. My skin does seem firmer and a bit smoother but that's about all. My pores are the same, as are my tiny lines. I've just recently dropped my use to daytime only, since I've been breaking out. At night I was using it w/a Genefique sample and their Renergie Nuit cream. I think all of that was a bit much for my skin. As of a few days ago, all I'm using is Estee Lauder ANR and the Renergie Nuit. Probably going to drop their night cream too. Seems I am also one of those that can't use a lot of their products w/out breaking out.
Rambling aside, I think the Visionairre is nice but overpriced. I didn't see any great improvement after almost a month of twice/day use. Depending on how things go when the other samples come in, I may be dropping all of my Lancome in favor of Decleor. I just got a sample of their Ylang Ylang Aromessence oil, and I'm going to use that instead of the Visionairre during the day. Just have to see how things go with my skin once it's completly out of my day and night routines. Who knows? Could be that I see a difference and go back to it.
I've only been using this product from a sample size for about two days now, day and night. I'm actually seeing a lot of improvement and been considering purchasing my own bottle, unless I really find something just as great later on down the line.
My skin is beginning to be very even in complexion. I actually just did a facial about a week ago, and my face was still very red because the esthetician really popped all my pimples and blackheads... Once I began using this product, it lightened up a lot of my areas. As for scars, it seems to be a bit fading too. Not sure about the fine lines because I'm fairly young, but since it's anti-aging, why not use this since it's better for me in the future!
Crazy right? But let's see in two weeks if I really purchase this. Ill update! Still debating because it is about $90! That's good for more than two weeks of gas!
Overall, I really like this. I might just think this is the product that will make me stop wearing any face makeup.
I've been using this for over a week now, and already I'm seeing great improvement in my skin tone and the wrinkles under my eyes! I have sensitive skin and light adult acne, so I've been dealing with red splotches on my cheeks and chin for years. Once I started on this product, I pretty much abandoned all my other creams (even my StriVectin!). It toned down my redness in a matter of days, and I've stopped getting the big, red bumps on my chin. My skin's never been so soft, smooth, and tamed! I can't wait to see what my face will look like in the recommended 4 weeks (to see real results). It's a little pricey, yes, but think about this: you probably won't need the other products anymore!
I had a sample, tried it on the back of my hand and it was very drying. No thank you, I will stay with my Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair..now that's real science behind the real results.
