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.

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.

You little beauty
This little blue bottle paired with Lancôme Génifique Youth Activator has helped to start whipping my skin into a condition that resembles perfect.
I have suffered from acne as a teenager and have rather large pores, acne scarring and uneven skin tone. I have been using these two beauties for just over a week now and I have noticed a difference in the texture and pore size already.
Looking forward to what it holds in the coming weeks. Fingers crossed it will be awesome :)

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!

As there are so many skin types, it is hard to pick out the perfect face serum. I have always been scared to pay a lot for a product and then break out, as i have very sensitive skin. The Lancome Visionnaire was sent to me by BH (thanks again, so so much!) as a trial and then i ended up repurchasing when i ran out, as it is such an amazing product! I will continue to use it daily and can just imagine how good my skin will look in the future! It does everything that it says it will!
The packaging of the Visionnaire is perfection. It is a product every woman would want to have on her bathroom shelf as it looks so lux and high end. It's a thin, sleek blue and silver, slightly sheer, bottle. When the lid is removed, there is a small pump. What i like about the pump is that if you lightly press on it, less product will come out (for example if you only want to apply the serum to your eyes) and if you press harder on the pump, more product will come out. There definately isn't any waste!
The serum has has a light, lovely fresh and clean smell which pretty much disappears after a couple of minutes after the product being applied to the face.
When i pump the product onto my fingertips, it has a beautiful pinkish-opaque colour which, when applied to the skin, blends in completely. The serum isn't sticky like other serums i have tried; it is very light, smooth and soft and does not sting or make my (combination) skin look and/or feel greasy.
I apply the serum straight after cleansing (with a glycolic cleanser), and i find it works amazing after having a microdermabrasion done, as it is really calms and soothes the skin! I find applying two to three pumps enough for my eyes, face and neck, morning and night. As soon as it comes in contact with my skin, it sinks in straight away, making it feel softer, more hydrated and it literally giving it that healthy glow that everone is after!
After religiously using it for a couple of months, i have found that it reduces and fades the redness after a pimple and that it makes my pores appear less prominent. I cannot really comment about wrinkles, as i am stil young and don't have any, but after using the serum, my skin does feel and look much tighter. I just have to add that after two weeks of using it, i saw a noticeable improvement of my skintone and texture.
Ladies, definately go and splurge, this is a MUST HAVE, until you try it, you wont know what you have been missing out on, seriously!

I certainly noticed a definite difference in the texture and tone of my skin while using this. My pores seemed to shrink and the surface of my skin was super smooth.
The only downside is the hefty price. I may have to wait for a special occasion to bribe someone to buy this for me so I won't feel as guilty about spending so much money.

Just heavenly..... :)
I was lucky enough to be sent this to trail for the TT, Thanks BH!! As most of you would know I have super sensite skin, so I was a bit hesitant about trying it, but I'm so glad I did....
The serum has a really light, lovely fresh smell, which pretty much disappears after a couple of minutes when applied to the face, it just absorbs so quickly & thoroughly.
When I pump the product onto my fingertips, it’s has a pinkish- colour, and then when applied to the skin it blends in completely. The serum isn’t sticky or cloying like many others; it’s very light, smooth and soft and doesn’t sting or make my skin look or feel greasy at all! I found that as soon as I applied it, my skin felt oh so soft and more hydrated. Even though I have been using it for only 2weeks, my pores appear less prominent, a problem that has worried me for a while. As for wrinkles, I can’t really comment because I havent really seen much difference, but my skin does feel tighter & much nicer as a whole! It does come with a hefty price tag, its a tad out of my range, but if you can afford it, go for it.... it's a lovely product that I would reccomend to anyone!

MAGIC POTION REPLACES MY AVERAGE LOTION
Ive decided to buy this product and try it out as I’ve been curious to try with all the hype and good reviews but was hesitant to spend that much money on a product they may or may not work.
The texture of serum was smooth, luminent and had a pearl through it which looked and felt luxurious.
The product doesnt disappoint, form the moment I appled to my fingertips to smearing it all over my face it felt luxurious, I felt my skin was being spoilt. My skin absorbed every single drop of the serum and felt supersmooth and supple.
The impact on my skin was tremendous within the first week, I had neglected my skin for 6 weeks whilst I had my middle finger in a strap during the day and a removeable cast at night so my skin regime was barely existent, within those 6 weeks my skin was good and went to ‘havoc please help me!’. Within the first week of applying Lancome’s Visionnaire Advanced SKin Corrector, the redness on my cheeks, nose and chin had reduced by half, the surface of my skin was started to smooth and the tone was returning back to normal if not better. Another two weeks went by and my skin is looking amazing, I still have a bit of congestion on the chin with some redness but I truly believe it will take a little longer for my skin to recover from the short term neglect.
This is a product I will be adding to my beauty regime permanently.
