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!

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.

Best in Beauty 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.

Glosscars Best in Beauty 2012 - Incredibly powerful
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.

Without a Doubt my favourite !
I have been using this product for 6 weeks now, I can see true results. I share it with my mother who believes it has assisted her pigmentation of her dark spots and really adds moisture to her face. For me, my redness and acne spots have reduced in colour and I love this product.

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.
