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!

it was average
I expected this product to be amazing considering all of the fantastic reviews that it recieved, however I would rate it as very average after using.
Firstly I dont believe that it is appropriate for dry skin, as it has a slightly alcohol feeling and smell to it. I was expecting it be a little bit oily, which it really wasn't.
The product smells like a chemicals, and has small specs of shimmer particals in it. Like what you would see in a mineral eyeshadow. (they are very tiny, but nonetheless I do not want that on my skin). It did produce minor benefits, reduced redness, a bit a acne scarring. But minimal considering the price.

Excellent Skin perfecting serum
I love Lancome and loving it more since it launched Visionnaire. I use it day and night after applying Genifique and the feel of the serum only skin makes me feel luxuriously beautiful! After a while, you could feel your skin tightening, but i think that it may be best applied during the cooler months such as winter, since my skin feels a bit itchy when its warm. The best thing is when you wake up in the morning and feel your skin as you wash your face with water. I don't use cleanser to wash my face in the morning and i preserve the soft clean and refreshed feeling. Its a pity it's so pricey. I might not be able to afford to keep on buying it for continued use.

Easy To Spread Fine Serum
Subtle, fresh, almost lemony scented serum. It looks milky and it feels really light and thin in texture - very easy to spread all over the face. I love that I can put it all over very quickly - including my eye area.
I've become a bit addicted to serums over these last few cooler months. My skin seems to appreciate them. Being in my forties may have something to do with it!
This one gives my skin a bit more hydration than if I just used a moisturiser. It feels easy to apply - there is no dragging of the skin. It hasn't made me break out (I've been using a 10 day sample) which I am prone to doing with the wrong products for acne-prone skin. So this is a pretty good serum which I feel does give me an extra layer of hydration.

I love this product so much! From the first time I used it I noticed visible results. The next morning my skin looked brighter and more refreshed an hydrated then usual. It just disappears into the skin leaving no residue behind. It is a serum but it looks like a cream and I've noticed in the light that the product has an almost holographic shimmer to it. The bottle is also a very pretty addition to any vanity unit.

I received a small sample of this to try so I haven't got a lot of product to base my review on I must confess but what I do like about Visionnaire is that is absorbs really quickly for a serum and makes my skin feel immediately soft. I found that it did boost hydration and worked in really well with my moisturiser to make my skin feel really smooth and was a good base for makeup. It has a sort of grabbing quality when you touch it - not sticky as such but it feels a little tacky in the tactile sense of the word. It does give my skin a little healthy sheen which I like. The smell isn't fantastic - a bit on the chemical side but it's ok. Overall, I think this is a hydrating serum with visible benefits for dry skin.

The first thing you will notice about visionnaire is the stunning packaging. The bottle is a beautiful aqua color. It comes with a pump top making for more hygenic application.
The serum inside is white in color, and creamy in texture. I find it has a pleasent fragrance that quickly fades once applied, and the serum itself is rapidly absorbed into the skin.
I applied 1/2 a pea sized amount in the evening over a space of two months. I found it to be quite moisturising on its own, which suprised me. Often i did not need to apply a night cream over the top.
Since using visionnaire, i have noticed wonderful changes in my skin. It's brighter and more even toned, my acne wasn't playing up anywhere near as much, and the fine lines around my eyes seem to have softened.
I am very impressed with visionnaire, even for the price i think it's worth every cent. I will be repurchasing as i feel the long term results will be even better. I cannot recommend enough, for those younger who are looking at prevention and for those wanting to turn back the clock. Everyone could benefit from some Visionnaire in their skin routine!

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 :)
