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!

Glosscars 2012 - skin care
I was very fortunate to receive two lancome serums as part of the super serum Primped trial.
I trialled both the lancome genifique and the lancome visionnaire as part of a paired skin care routine.
Firstly, upon receiving the serum I found it very visually appealing in colours, bottle design and structure. It is a sturdy plastic bottle (30mls) with a great lid that clicks shut tight. On top is a pump action where I usually use 1.5 pumps to cover my entire face and neck.
The serum is very light and slightly watery so it applys on silky smooth giving a dewy finish to your face. Great thing about it is that immediantly after you can apply your normal moisturiser so you have no waiting around time.
I had never tried anything from the Lancome range before this but as soon as this wonder-serum came on the market I think I got swept up in the hype and was dying to try it for myself. It seems that everyone is turning to ultimate fix-all serums lately and its no wonder why... They last a surprisingly long time (so it makes up for the hefty price tag) and you start to notice changes 2 weeks after using it.
So what changes are we talking about?
Well I must admit I havent noticed drastic, life-changing changes to my skin but I am in my early 20s so my skin hasnt seen the wear and tear that older women may notice.
That is not to say that I havent gone completely unchanged.
I feel as though my skin has become more tighter with continued use. I dont have deep wrinkles so I dont know how good the serum is for this and I was actually thinking of giving this serum to my mother to see how she likes it. My mum is always self conscious of her looks (she has no need to be) but I think it would be a great gift to give to her as I have heard truly wonderful things about it and if she can notice results then its worth every penny!
The serum is lightly fragranced with a perfume-type smell to it but it is very subtle and once you apply moisturiser over it, you can not notice the scent.
The actually look of the serum is a white colour with shimmery tones throughout it, so it works to brighten your face and sink into the skin reducing any redness and large pores.
My hat goes off to Lancome in producing this wonderful serum that everyone is going crazy for and if you are still not convinced head in store to hear more about it.

Glosscars 2012 Review
This product came to me after hearing so many positive comments from many of the lovely ladies at BeautyHeaven about how fantastic it is and not a single negative comment was to be heard. So of course i was extreemly 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 received these products i was very excited and 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 and you find that the products will be dispensed via a dropper or in the case of Visionnaire its dispensed via a pump. This pump is very gentle and only issues a small amount which is fantastic as 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 was pleasing to the nose.
On day one 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 and as im someone that suffers with sensitive skin im very confident in saying that if you also have sensitive skin concerns then this product is certainly one that you should think about using as i feel my skin is a pretty good indicator as if anyone is going to react it will be me but my skin loved these products.
As each day went on and i was applying these products morning and night i very quickly noticed an improvement in my skin. Firstly it was just a general “my skin looks better” without being able to really say why but i am now noticing that my skin tone is more even and im not so red in the face as i do tend to suffer a lot with rosacea. As said 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 are very much smoothed out and are now hardly visable. I do feel that with ongoing use they will totally vanish. Enlarged pores around my nose area are slowly vanishing.
Im 47 years old and did visit a beautician yesterday who commented that my skin looks fantastic for someone in thier late 40's. Some of that is genetics but i also know that i can also give thanks to Lancome for helping me to look a little younger.
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 would still delight. They are products that i very much will not want to be without. I am very excited to see how my skin is looking in another month.
The sale price certainly sounds very expensive and it is but although i really am not known as someone thats happy to splash money around I have found that honestly im in love with these products. I find that a bottle would certainly last for quite sometime and for me these products do work. Im telling myself that its better to spend money on things that i know will work then to spend money on a product that just makes 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 WILL repurchase…im now a convert and im addicted.

Glosscars - I'd give it 6 stars if I could!
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!
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, which could be an issue for those who don’t like fragranced products, but it doesn't linger.
I initially trialled this for 10 days of use, and within that time found the texture of my 40+ skin improved, pores appeared less noticeable and there was minor evening out of skin tone. Now on to my second bottle (I was more than happy to purchase it once I finished my trial bottle) I have found a continual improvement in my skin.
It certainly isn't a cheap product, but I think the 12 years of research that went into it deliver the results. It also isn't as excessively expensive as some of the other high-end products on the market.
Now an essential part of my beauty routine, I suggest you run to the beauty counter for this one!

I was really lucky to be offered this product to trial, i can't give it enough love and would not be going out on a limb by giving it HG status.
Wrinkles, pores, evenness ~ if these are issues for you then this could be the answer.
I've got really dry skin and i'm a demon with moisturiser but sometimes you look at your skin and think it's just tired looking no matter what you do ~ this beauty transformed my skin, i was lighter, brighter and generally a whole lotta plumped !
The packaging was sleek and impressive, the pump on my trial bottle was a bit dicky but the bottle i've had since was fine.
It had a slight chemical smell but otherwise nice and fresh, the texture was gel/cream ~ smoothed on beautifully, felt like silk on my skin.
I used morning and night including using around my eye area, (double use product ~ you've got to love that !) instantly my skin felt hydrated and comfortable. In the mornings i used under my moisturiser and then primer and foundation, my make up looked flawless and felt great all day.
Withink a couple of weeks my skin was looking so smooth and moisturised, it's so great when you use something that actually works. The area around my eyes probably benefited the most and my fine lines were noticably softer.
It's expensive but i only used 3 pumps for my entire face.
I've since purchased this product and i still love it ~ i use every second day now and still my skin is looking great.
Great, Great product :)

I bought this product 2-3 weeks 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!

TT update – still the best!
My in-depth TT review was back in September 2011 - I raved about it then, and I’m still crazy-in-love with this serum. The refinements are more gradual now that I’m only using it every other night (believe me I’d apply it all over my bod every waking moment if I could), but even with less frequent applications, my pores have remained on their tightening path, and my complexion continues to smooth and even out as the months goes by. I’m at that stage in life where the aging process accelerates - before beautyheaven introduced me to this elixir vitae, my mirror reflected noticeable deterioration in tone and increased wrinkle development from one month to the next, but that whole nasty (and depressing) business seems to have halted, and the truth is I look fresher and more youthful than I did 6 months ago. The long-term creases are still there though not as pronounced, but the fine lines around my eyes and top lip barely rate a mention any more. When friends and family ask how come my skin looks so good, I just laugh and say “get thee to a Lancôme counter”.
Perhaps being older, I had the most to gain from this transforming technology - well my skin sure had seen better days, but thanks to Visionnaire, that phrase is no longer in my vocabulary :-)

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!

Re-submitted for Glosscars 2012
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.

I'm only 20 so I felt a litle silly using this, I know they should say you should start using ageing treatments early but I didn't know if it would actually do anything for me. I received some sample sizes, I would love to have a full size purely for the pretty bottle on my nightstand, I think it such beautiful packaging. I enjoy applying this before bed purely for the smell. It smells rich and luxurious and is so nice to smell before I fall asleep. Honestly I can't see any difference in my skin while I've been using it so I probably wouldn't pay the money for this product myself. I would be happy to revisit this product again though maybe in 10 years when I feel it might start to have some benefits for me.

I used Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector daily for two months, once a day in the evening time under my night moisturizer. I have been meaning to purchase another bottle and repeat another cycle before I did my review, but it is Glosscars time and I am definitely positive I've got the results to share.
Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector is beautifully packaged in a silver and blue tall glass bottle that looks absolutely glamorous on my dressing table. Underneath a see-through blue lid is a convenient pump top that hygienically disperses a pea size amount of light-pinkish tinted serum with each press.
The serum is very lightweight, easily absorbed into the skin, and is beautifully fragranced. I really believe that it has the same scent as Chanel Eau Tendre, but that could just be me. I'm not allergic to perfumes in skincare so I'm not sure how a person sensitive to fragrance might react to it. The scent does, however, disappear soon after application to the skin.
Lancome claims the following results:
-Wrinkles appear reduced, as if smoothed
-Skin imperfections seem diminished
-Pores appear less visible
-Dark spots are visibly reduced
-Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin
First off, I have to mention that I don’t have many wrinkle concerns besides smile lines, and mini lines around my eyes. I used this product for two months straight - three pumps under my moisturizer, including the eye contour and neck. And the lines are practically gone, after just two months of use. My pores are also visibly reduced in size around my nose area and cheeks.
Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector has also really improved my skin condition in the sense of radiance and overall evenness. My skin just appears a lot smoother and more radiant, the first word that comes to mind when I see my skin in the morning is 'relaxed'.
Now, the most important thing that convinced me of the product was the healing properties of Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%]. My boyfriend had a nasty cut in the corner of his mouth obtained while shaving that refused to heal even after months. Well, after starting to apply the serum every night on the cut, it finally closed and healed after just two weeks.
Apparently this is one of the most important properties, it restarts the healing process of the skin and boosts its entire appearance. Also, it's a great help in fading scars and acne marks.
Overall, I highly recommend Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector to anyone who is looking to improve their skins appearance and texture. It has worked for me and I will continue to use it. It's most definitely worth the price for the results it provides.
