Hi All, With all the hype over Visionnaire lately I was wondering how you all compare Lancome Visionnaire vs Genifique vs SK11 Facial Trmt Essence?

Great topic missmisss. I have used both Genifique (my current and fave serum for the past 12months) and recently tried the SK11 Facial Treatment Essence. I’m not sure they fall within the same category as I think Genifique is a serum whereas SK11 is more like a toner to me. I bought 2 bottles of Genifique and I really like the gel-like formula. I have actually reviewed this as well as the whole Genifique skincare range so I won’t go into so much detail here. I would love to try Visionnaire though I think I am still relatively young and don’t need it as yet.

I only used SK11 for about a week, morning and night and it seemed to disagree with my skin, as I noticed I was getting a few blemishes/bumps here and there and my skin didn’t look as smooth as it normally does. Also there is a slight weird/off smell about this essence. Perhaps it was just a bad week for me due to other things like my diet or the weather. I will try it again and see how it goes because there are so many good reviews on this product.

very interesting yeh I have a sample of Visionnaire so I’m going to try it out this weekend and see how it compares to Genifique. But I totally love Genifique. I remember I put it on one side of my face only and the difference was amazing all my pores closed up and my skin was so soft . It’s just like instantly good skin :) I’m really intertested in SK11’s skin whitening products though because I have quite freckly skin and because of it, it makes my complexion not look clear…. has anyone tried their whitening stuff.. also clinique have a few whitening/brightening products

I will probably stick with Genifique for a while as it works for me, possibly get the whole skincare range again once I finish my current one. However, I might be tempted by new skincare products between now and when I’m ready to stock up. I was considering trying a new serum given my skin’s gotten used to Genifique. Good luck with finding some whitening products – I haven’t used any so can’t make any recommendations.

I prefer the Genifique, I’ve tried both Visionnaire and the full SKII system and Genifique was the only one that led me to see a pretty noticeable difference. I was surprised that I noticed no difference from Visionnaire..

That’s interesting. Could it be your skin is already in excellent condition and therefore any improvements weren’t as noticeable?

I’ve been using the Lancome Visionnaire for the last 4 days, only once a day as I only have the sample but I haven’t noticed anything amazing, although I’d love to be able to get my hands on some more samples just to give it a couple or 3 weeks to see if it does work at all. I hate that samples are just so small that you really can’t tell much about the product at all. I haven’t tried the Genefique but so many people have raved about it that I really do want to try that one too. I use SK-11 FTE at the moment but I also think of that as more of a toner, not a serum.

That sounds like what I’m after, my pores are becoming so much more noticeable lately.

I have older and testosterone driven skin (read: monthly lumps), but neither Gen or Vis did a thing other than make my pores more blocked. The less I put on my skin the better it seems to be. A damn good moisturiser is all I need. Putty filller for the crows feet, but that’s it.

I know exactly what you’re on about Kapted, some good putty filler that could moisturise at the same time, make pores disappear and give an instant yet longlasting facelift at the same time. (not much to ask for).

tried the Visionnaire sample I had on the weekend. It seemed nice but I don’t think I had a big enough sample to really see any difference. It’s not like Genifique which you can instantly see a quite dramatic change… genifique is amazing… on my Christmas list!!

I’m using SKII Facial Treatment Essence and I’m just amazed at how clear my skin looks and how much my pigmentation has faded. It is really moisturising for a liquid too and contains a SPF as a bonus. I can’t compare it to the other products though because I haven’t tried them.

Yes, you use this after cleansing. You can either pour a few drops onto palm and pat onto face or pour onto cotton pad and swipe on face :)
I am going to give this another shot once my skin is better

Hi All, With all the hype over Visionnaire lately I was wondering how you all compare Lancome Visionnaire vs Genifique vs SK11 Facial Trmt Essence?

just a quick question, are you refering to Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate or genifique day cream?

I’ve since gotten hold of Visionnaire so I will try it out and see how I go. And I think it was my new sunscreen which was causing my skin to break out, and not the SKII Facial Treatment Essence. Looking forward to reviewing these two products once I have tried them out properly.

I’ve used both Visionnaire & SKII quite a lot and Genefique occasionally. I’m not fond of Genefique as it seems to make my skin break out but I love both Visionnaire and the SKII essence.

Visionnaire has reduced the appearance of my pores and helped reduce those nasty little fine lines.

SKII made my skin look clearer, brighter & refreshed.

It’s a bit hard to say which is better as they both are great products that seem to have slightly different effects. But if you’re after value for money then I think the SKII is better because a bottle of essence lasts for absolutely ages. :)
