I'm seriously so in love with this. 2 days and the texture of my skin is f*cking PHENOMENAL. I've been trying to even out my texture with dozens of products for months and nothing worked until I found this. seriously in love i hope they never get rid of this!!!

I bought this because I liked the Lancome Visionnaire and this is supposed to be a dupe for it. But it's not the same at all. It has a horrible strong chemical/perfumy scent which never goes away. (Unless perhaps the one I bought had gone bad? I don't see others mentioning this scent.) The texture is similar to Visionnaire, but I just can't use it long enough to see if it does anything because the strong scent is unbearable. I have tried the serums because they are supposed to be good for the skin. I can't use this one. I bought a full bottle and I am probably going to throw it out. Since the full bottle of Visionnaire is about $120 and this was about $20, I can stand the loss. I realized it was a gamble. Update: I did throw it out as I couldn't stand to smell it anymore.

I can't live without this stuff! I'm not too sure about how it lives up to the claims on the packaging, but overall, my skin has been better texture-wise since I began using this about a year and a half ago. I'm on my fourth bottle right now. I apply it before I go to bed along with other products, and then if my skin feels full or it's dry in the winter, I'll apply it under my moisturizer! I'm someone with oily, acne prone skin so normally I wouldn't dare apply anything else other than moisturizer and primer before doing my makeup, but this stuff really helps give my skin the boost it needs some days, and without making it greasy. I truly cannot pin point what it is that this has done for my skin besides perfect the texture, maybe even prevent breakouts... but all I know is that my skin loves it and when I went two weeks without it my skin was miserable, lol. I've had the best skin in my life so far since adding this product to my arsenal! A bit expensive in general, but not compared to other products I have to buy, and also definitely worth the price! (Shoutout to Nicole Guerriero because I too bought it because of what she had to say about it!)

This is okay. It makes my combo-oily, sensitive, dehydrated, acne-prone skin feel smooth. It is pretty perfumey - molasses smell. Smell dissipates and does not last long. My skin does get oily with this. My skin temporarily feels better; I don't really notice improvements with my skin. This is an "eh" product. Not sure if I would buy again; I just don't really like it either.

Holy (insert expletive here)! This stuff has changed my skin!!! I have: DRY, SENSITIVE skin that is starting to show minor signs of aging (I'm in my early 30's so this is to be expected). I've always used very simple skincare because of my high sensitive to many products. I went through a phase in the summer where my skin was peeling and itchy and honestly I didn't know what to do because my usual skincare routine just wasn't cutting it. After trying our numerous products and finding them either too greasy, or not greasy enough, I went on a YouTube research journey to see what other people were using and the L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector line was getting a ton of amazing reviews (and a few terrible ones too). I decided, despite the bad reviews, I would give it a shot. The lady at the drugstore told me "you shouldn't use the shelf-brands because they have lots of chemicals in them"...WHATEVER LADY, clearly you're missing some pertinent information because THIS PRODUCT HAS SERIOUSLY CHANGED MY SKIN!!!

I've been using it for about three weeks now and I can't even! Not only have I not had one breakout, but it has actually gotten rid of the tiny little bumps I was experiencing. No dryness, my skin feels incredibly smooth, my makeup goes on like a dream, it absorbs quickly without leaving my skin feeling tight...it literally feels like velvet going on and in the morning my skin is smooth as a baby's bottom. There is a definite glow to my skin and my fine lines, while not disappearing by any means, are absolutely diffused.

I LOVE this stuff! Yes, it's $34 at regular price, but I think well worth it, considering that it does exactly what it claims to. I can't say this will work for everyone, but it's worked for me and apparently many others. Will repurchase without a doubt!

An excellent drugstore primer and pore minimizer. This really makes my face look smooth and gives my large pores a barely there appearance. Has a floral rose scent. Contains lentil seed extract which is supposed to help large pores and salicylic acid. Contains dextrin.

On my second bottle. I'm 30, with extremely dry skin - and just recently, prone to fine forehead lines. I have been devastated with my recently aging skin as I've always looked quite young - I thought my age had finally caught up to me in one way or another, as I've yet to find a grey hair (still looking daily)

This stuff has literally saved my skin and renewed my confidence. Can't tell you how or what exactly it does - and I know according to some, it's filled with chemicals, and cones - and all those other scary, unnatural, test-tube sounding things that would destroy skin - BUT I can't even explain the difference it's made. Those fine lines I thought were there for good - are POOF. GONE. not even a shadow to be seen! I've been using religiously day and night - two pumps each time (likely overkill but my skin is thirsty - and it's drugstore product so I can afford to buy a larger quantity) -

I do hope the rave reviews for this continue bc if this is discontinued - I honestly don't know what id due. (Likely try Lancme come to think of it - as I'm told the formula is a fairly close dupe for one of their serums - but let's be honest. It's $20 bucks and I can buy it at 2am at a drugstore!)

Bottom line: if you're concerned about newly formed fine lines and wrinkles that could be due to dehydration of skin - give this a shot for a few weeks and I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised!

I bought this product after all the hype about its wonders.. I should start by saying that there is only one moisturizer that my crazy sensitive skin tolerates and it is the La Roche Posay "toleriane ultra fluid" for skin that is extremely intolerant to all products out there..
Which is so sad because I am a product junkie..
Anyhow, I put this on before bed and the smell + pink sparkles + loads of silicone in the ingredient list gave me that warning. I woke up with perfect smooth skin, was pleasantly surprised but my skin acted up closer to the evening in small red bumps and some cystic buggers. It also made my skin oilier.
So that being said... I am giving it 3 lippies for the wonders this product does for my neck! Makes it baby smooth and even, no stickiness.
Verdict: This is a good product for normal skin, my skin needs special care unfortunately
