Lancome - Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%] Advanced Skin Corrector
- Overall rating:
Lancôme Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%] Advanced Skin Corrector is an anti-ageing skin treatment that helps to minimise the appearance of wrinkles, tighten and reduce pores, and produce a more resilient, even skin tone on all skin types and ethnicities. Formulated with LR 2412, a unique new molecule born out of 12 years of research, it has the ability to ‘self-propel’ through the layers of the skin, recognising skin damage and triggering the skin’s repair process. As a result, skin is visibly transformed: the texture is finer, wrinkles are visibly erased, pigmentary irregularities are reduced, and pores are tightened. It can be used on all skin types, even on sensitive skin and around the eye contour.

Have been using the Lancome Visionnaire after application of the Lancome Genifique and totally astounded with the results!
First just adore the beautiful blue shade of the bottle and the styling of it. Love that it is a pump pack and also that the pump delivers small amounts at a time. I require 2 pumps to cover my entire face. I first apply the Lancome Genifique wait for a minute for it to be absorbed and then apply the Lancome Visionnaire. Its a milky white liquid cream which absorbs easily into my skin and spreads easily over my face. It is safe enough to use on the delicate eye area so I start with applying it around my eyes and then blend it in over the rest of my face. My skin instantly feels smoother, softer, hydrated and supple. I wait for a few minutes for it to dry and then apply my moisturizer and the rest of my makeup. My makeup stayed on fine without any problems.
Had no problems with my skin, no redness no irritations or break outs at all! Within a week I immediately noticed a difference in my overall skin tone! Was delighted to see the pores on my nose reduced as well as the fine wrinkles below my eyes and forehead. My skin actually seems to glow! The acne scars on my face were not lightened much and hope that they will fade with regular use.
Has a beautiful light fragrance which fades after awhile. One of the only skin care products that actually made a visible difference to my skin apart from moisturizing. Totally impressed!

showing results but nothing drastic
I recieved a sample sized bottle os this product in the 2012 Lancome beauty box. I would never have bought this product before myself as it is quite pricey but after trying it i may repurchase it. I have always thought that because i am young and have no wrinkles yet i have no need for any skin correcting products but i was so wrong! This product has made my skin softer, moisturised feeing and my complexion more even. I have been applying it every night over my Lancome genefique eye concentrate and my Lancome genefique for about two weeks now. The only problem i have had with this is that my skin feels slightly oily in the morning before i wash my face which is why i dont really want to apply it during the day.

I really like this product, I use it after my Genefique sreum, and I think the two of them work really well.
The lightweight formula absorbs really quickly, leaving my oily skin matte but moisturised.
I use this at night, and my face still feels smooth in the morning, and I find it a shame to wash it off!
I can't say I am seeing miraculous results, my skin does look and feel like it has improved, and that's good enough for me, I am not expecting miracles from a topical cream!
Although expensive, this does last a very long time as you only need a little.
I really do like this product and highly recommend!

A very luxurious serum
I am resubmitting my review of this so that it may be considered for a glosscars award.
I was delighted to be sent this serum to trial for the BH trial team. The second I pulled it out of its box I knew I was in for a real treat as the packaging is just amazing - it is house in a gorgeous jewel like teal bottle that looks amazing on the vanity - but you shouldn't judge a beauty product by its packaging as its whats inside that counts.
The bottle is a pump pack which is perfect for dispensing as well as for maintaining the hygene of the product. I used 3 pumps to do my whole face though i might have been a tad excessive - you probably could get away with two. But even with the amount i used it still absorbed instantly into my skin.
Immediately after applying my skin felt satin soft and not at all greasy - matte even - which is quite surprising for my oily skin. I would apply the serum straight after hoping out of the shower or after washing my face in the evening, then give it a couple of minutes to sink in whilst i brushed my teeth before applying my moisturiser.
The serum left my skin looking amazing. the light reflecting, illuminating particles really did an excellent job of hiding my skin concerns which are redness on the cheeks and around the nose, some pigmentation issues on my forhead and noticeable pores on my nose.
Long term - I think i have noticed a reduction in the pigmentation on my forehead - the line between the pigmented skin and non pigmented skin is no longer quite so stark. There hasn't been a reduction in the redness or pore size on my face - I think these are more corrected via the light reflecting particles rather than being permanently corrected..
In addition to how gorgeous this left my skin looking, it smells amazing. Its a typical Lancome scent - if you are familiar with that, but gorgeous none the less.
Would I buy this again? Absolutely! I love the way it leaves my skin looking. I would probably use this as a day serum rather than a day night serum, mostly becuase, with the light reflecting illuminating particles, it is more of a makeup product for me. It seriously leaves my skin looking so even and glowing - just gorgeous!

I bought this product 6 months ago and I am really happy about the results already. I have wrinkles, as any 46 year old lady, and didn't really expect it to do THAT much to them. But after just 2 weeks I was really surprised about the result. I can also see a big difference on my pores, especially on my nose, my skin is noticeably more even-toned and redness greatly reduced. I am over the moon!
I have used many products over the years and truly this one is unbelievable!

Best in Beauty - Outstanding Performer
This is one of the most beautifully packaged products I’ve used – a stylish, luxurious-looking turquoise and silver bottle – it’s one you’ll want to leave out on display. But of course, it’s what on the inside that matters!
It’s a product that comes with big promises – aiming to target texture, wrinkles, pigment and pores with its new multi-tasking patented molecule. All things that get a big tick from me! Its hero ingredient is a unique molecule, with the distinctively uncatchy name of LR 2412, that has the ability to trigger the skin’s own repair process.
On application, the white serum is almost instantly absorbed, and leaves no residue or film on the skin. It feels weightless, as though nothing is on the skin. The pump is great for hygienic, no-waste application. I found that one and a half pumps were perfect to cover my face, so I think the 30mls will go far. Moisturiser can be applied straight after, and it provides a lovely base for foundation.
The scent of the product is divine. It is reasonably strong, which could be an issue for those who don’t like fragranced products, but it doesn't linger.
Within weeks of use, I found that the texture of my 40+ skin had improved, pores appeared less noticeable and there was a minor evening out of skin tone. With continued use, these results have been maintained and improved upon.
It certainly isn't a cheap product, but I think the 12 years of research that went into it deliver the results. Lancome has also recently reduced its price in Australia and it compares very well in price and performance to many of the other top of the line anti-aging products available.

Best in Beauty 2012 Review
I have been using this product for about a year and my skin loves it. This product first came to me after hearing so many positive comments from many of the lovely ladies at BeautyHeaven about how fantastic it is, with not a single negative comment to be heard. So, of course I was extremely excited to have the opportunity to try it for myself.
I was lucky enough to be able to use it with the Lancôme’s Génifique Youth Activator which is how they suggest you use it. Apply the Lancôme’s Génifique Youth Activator first and then the Visionnaire and follow that with your day or night creams.
When I first received these products I was very excited. I was instantly struck with how impressive the packaging looked, as it screams quality. Lancome skin care products seem to always be packaged in a way that protects the contents from becoming contaminated. You will find that the products will be dispensed via a dropper or in the case of Visionnaire its dispensed via a pump. That way you do not have to dip your fingers into the products. This pump is very gentle and only issues a small amount, which is fantastic, because there is nothing more annoying then these products where the pump gives you enough product for 3 uses in a single pump. Thankfully, Lancome's pump works perfectly.
The product itself is a white coloured serum, with a light scent that is pleasing to the nose. It comes in either a 30ml or 50ml container.
With my very first application of these serums, using the Genifique first and then the Visionnaire and applying a little of the Visionnaire around my eye area. I loved how it made my skin feel. The Visionnaire is so gentle that use on your delicate eye area is fine. I'm someone that suffers with sensitive skin, and I'm very confident in saying that if you also have sensitive skin concerns then this product is certainly one that you should think about using. I feel my skin is a pretty good indicator, if anyone is going to react, it will be me. But my skin loved these products.
As each day went by, and I was applying these products morning and night, I very quickly noticed an improvement in my skin. At First it was just a general “my skin looks better” without being able to really say why. I do tend to suffer a lot with Rosacea, however, I am now noticing that my skin tone is more even and I'm not so red in the face. I have very sensitive skin but to my delight, I suffered no problems at all using these products. Fine lines that I had around my eye and lip area were smoothed out and are now hardly visible. Enlarged pores around my nose area slowly vanished.
Sadly, I have not been able to use this product without breaks. That was not for skin issues, but simply being unable to afford to repurchase. Each time I stopped using the product, I would notice that my skin was not impressed.
I would certainly recommend this product, especially if you can team it with the Youth Activator, but if not I feel that the Vissionaire on its own is still a delight. They are products that I very much do not want to be without.
The sale price certainly sounds very expensive and it is. I really am not known as someone thats happy to splash money around but, I have found that honestly I'm in love with these products. I find that a bottle certainly lasts for quite sometime and for me these products do work. I'm telling myself that its better to spend money on things that i know will work then to spend money on a product that will just make me feel as if im trying to help my skin, but doesnt really give me the result. Lancome Visionnaire does give me positive results.
I am a convert and I'm addicted.

Lancome have hit the jackpot with this serum. I had been reading rave reviews about this product and so saved up so I could get it for myself...and I'm not disappointed.
I find the green/blue plastic canister to be very attractive, you cannot miss it. It has a pump dispenser, which is a huge plus as it keeps all the contents inside hygenic and fresh.
The serum/lotion is a whitish colour and is the consistency of a gel-based serum, more on the thick side. It has quite a strong scent, but it's not unpleasant. The consistency makes the product super easy to apply and I use 1-2 pumps to cover my face and neck area. It absorbs rapidly leaving no oiliness or residue on the skins surface.
I found the results to me almost immediate, my skin looked brighter and lifted all over and after continued use, it does look more even-toned. My pigmentation which annoys me so much, is definately lessening in its appearance. I can still see it but it tends to blend in more with the rest of my skin. I also find it plumps out my skin, decreasing the look of my finer lines and wrinkles. A must have product.

I have been using Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector for one month. Loving the results! I have never found another similar product that even came close to fulfilling its promises.
The product comes in a pump form, one pump is enough for the entire face. I use it in combination with Genifique youth activating concentrate.
My skin looks and feels smoother, more even toned, pores appear less visible, acne and blemish marks are diminishing, and my skin just looks HEALTHY!
It's a true winner for me!

BIB - my one, my only...
This will be my third review of Visionnaire, my ultimate anti-ageing serum. It’s been 12 months since I trialled this stunner for bh, and I’ve yet to be swayed by any other product. Back then I called it the future of my face – I could tell even after a few weeks that this serum was doing something very special for my skin, and I saw quite dramatic results in a short period of time.
Prior to using its rejuvenating ingredients, I literally had craters on and around my nose – the pores were so large, nothing could disguise them, and I was buying every pore filler on the market just to look half decent. Fine wrinkles seemed to be forming overnight as well, my skin was patchy and dull, and going without foundation was unimaginable, even on housebound days.
One year later, my faith in an external application solution to anti-ageing is stronger than ever (and I’m only using it at night). Visionnaire continues to refine and repair my complexion daily - my pores have normalised, the fine lines are shallowing into nothing, and my skintone is balanced and even. Without a doubt, this transforming serum is a caring and supportive life-partner – sounds corny I know, but we truly are a match made in beautyheaven.

I’ve been a fan of Lancome products so when I heard about Visionnaire, I was super excited to try it. This ADVANCED SKIN CORRECTOR or SERUM is designed for women of ALL SKIN TYPES (even SENSITIVE), who have concerns with WRINKLES, EVENNESS and PORES. Whilst I am still at an age where these skin concerns aren’t a big issue for me as yet, I believe EARLY PREVENTION IS KEY to maintaining more youthful looking skin for longer.
Visionnaire is housed in a sleek, slightly rectangular shaped TEAL COLOURED pump dispenser bottle. I love the pump which is not only more HYGIENIC, but delivers just enough product in a single pump to cover the entire face, though I prefer to use 1 and ¼ pumps. You can always pump out a little more if that is insufficient.
The serum is PEARLY WHITE with a SLIGHT PINKISH TINGE and is a CREAMY GEL-LIKE formula with a lovely, slightly FLORAL FRAGRANCE. I have been using this serum for about 3 months, every morning and night in conjunction with Lancome’s Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate. To use this serum, I dot small amounts around the entire face and then gently rub it in to ensure the serum is applied evenly. The serum DOESN’T FEEL STICKY or GREASY and is ABSORBED QUICKLY into the skin, leaving it feeling VELVETY SMOOTH with a slightly matte finish. It can be used alone but it is recommended that you apply your usual moisteriser afterwards for extra hydration.
To date I have noticed that my LAUGH LINES and the few FINE LINES on my forehead are SOFTER in appearance, the PORES near my cheeks are slightly SMALLER and my skin is more EVEN TONED and SMOOTH. I find that now I don’t have to apply a mask of foundation all over my face, but only require small amounts under the eyes, a bit on the cheeks and around the nose. This not only allows my skin to breathe but also gives me a more natural, less made up look. I believe with continued, prolong use, this serum will help PREVENT DEEP FINE LINES and WRINKLES from forming and keep the skin looking smooth.
I definitely would recommend this serum for those who are looking for a product that TARGETS THE 3 SKIN CONCERNS mentioned earlier, and to prevent the early signs of aging. It may be an additional step to your daily skincare routine, but this small step may be just what your skin needs to see REMARKABLE IMPROVEMENTS in the overall APPEARANCE and TEXTURE of your skin. YOUR SKIN WILL LOVE IT.
