Wonderful Sun Screen for the High-Humid Climate
onOctober 18, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isIt makes my mom very happy :-)
I bought this for my mom (who still lives in Thailand) about six months ago and she absolutely loved it. She rides her motorcycle to the big exercise field everyday and she said not only it protected her face from the sun ray; it also protected the strong wind from damaging her skin while she’s riding her bike as well. It’s also a perfect consistency for her since she lives in a high-heat & high-humidity like Thailand; it’s very light and doesn’t make her face sweat. I bought her the second bottle and she recommended me to try it as well, and so I bought the third bottle for myself and really liked it except it’s very dry on my face, which I think the Colorado climate is too dry for it, but it worked effectively!

Life-Time Beauty
onOctober 13, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isLasts forever and great for sensitive skin.
I’ve probably had this one case in Rose Terre since 2003 and it’s huge compare to the size now. The color doesn’t exist anymore, but it’s very similar to Shimmer Tamarind. It’s such a wonderful blush and the brush that came with it hasn’t deformed; I really appreciate the premium quality of it. It’s been perfect for my sensitive skin; it hasn’t made me break out. It stays on my face for the whole day without a touch-up. Maybe that’s why it has lasted for so long. The Rose Terre is really a nice compliment to my tan kin and it still glows beautifully after 9 years. Love it!

Best thing for my eyes EVER!!!
onOctober 6, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isGreat for sensitive skin.
What a great invention by Lancome! I’ve used Bi-Facil for two months now and absolutely love it. It’s so gentle; wonderful scent, and doesn’t sting my eyes. It works wonderfully with a soft touch, and leaves the skin around my eyes nice and soft. This is a very first eyes-makeup remover I’ve ever used. I never thought it was important to cleanse my eyes separately, but I do now, and I will never use regular makeup remover for my eyes again—it was so painful—yuk!. THANK YOU BI-FACIL!!!!

Can’t live without this lipstick.
onOctober 2, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isIt' a sensitive skin friendly.
I have used the L'Absolu Rouge for 15 years now; it’s the only thing that would not give my sensitively allergic lips a rash. I love the color; I love the texture; I love how it keeps my lips moist; I love how the color stays on for a long time, and I love the new snap-on tube.

I will use Définicils forever…
onOctober 2, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isThe best look of my lashes and it doesn't stain on my skin.
This is probable the best mascara I have ever used in my years of wearing makeup. I thought because I had a high cheek bone to make mascara smear on my upper cheeks, but because I was using those cheap ones all along. The Définicils DOESN’T STAIN on my upper cheeks; it really DEFINES my lashes; it STAYS ON all day long, and most importantly, it’s so EASY TO CLEAN IT OFF even while I’m applying it onto my lashes and it touches my skin, it comes off easily with just a tip of my pinky. It’s also easy to use with the lower lashes, too. Love it! My lashes never looked this good before. I will never go back to use those cheap brand mascaras again EVER!!! I will use Définicils forever…

It works great!
onOctober 1, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isIt' a sensitive skin friendly.
I decided to give this toner a try because I saw the word “Exfoliating” on it, and it really did a great job on ‘exfoliating’. I like it a lot and I don’t have to use it every day, because it keeps my face nice and smooth for couple of days, but I definitely use it on a very dry day in Colorado. The alcohol scent is actually quite refreshing rather than disturbing, and I am really sensitive to foul smells. Since it rehydrates skin, my face feels sticky on the warm days, but then I can just wash my face with just nice warm water and it feels good again. I use this at night for the whole face, and sometime during the day for the potential-acne areas only. Really Happy with This Toner! It' a sensitive skin friendly.

My Holy Water
onSeptember 29, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isRefreshing for skin with beautiful scent for stress.
After watching Michelle Phan’s video, I had a feeling that it would be something I had been looking for, for a long time. So, I went to get it and I absolutely loved it. It’s very friendly for my sensitive acne-prone skin. It leaves my skin so soft, smooth and clean. It’s perfect for any time of day; especially, a mid day toner when my face feels a bit sticky, and it doesn’t dry my skin out either. My potential acne seems to clear out quickly as well. It’s just the best and most wonderful cleanser I’ve ever experienced.

Awesome Cleanser
onAugust 26, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isIt doesn't make my face sweat after I apply a lotion on my face.
I’m always scared to try new cleanser, because I have a very sensitive-acne-prone skin, but this one doesn’t irritate my skin nor makes me break out at all. It also doesn’t over dry my skin; especially, in a very dry climate like Colorado. I can use it any time of day as well.

What another wonderful product by Lancome.
onAugust 21, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isWorks great and it doesn't irritate my sensitive / acne skin.
After reading all the reviews, I was out the door to Macy's buying it in no time. I've been looking for something non-greasy & non-SPF for the indoor working at home kind of day, and this lotion is perfect for my sensitive skin. It feels so light on my face and doesn't make me break out. It's easy to apply and it doesn't take much. Love It!!!!!

Perfect for the dry-windy-sunny days in Colorado :-)
onMay 21, 2012
Pros: Nice Finish, Value for Money, Immediate Results, smooth texture, Good Ingredients
Cons: expensive, Hard to Apply
My favorite thing about this product isWorks great and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
It works well except it takes longer to put it thoroughly on my face because of its thickness, and it seems like I have to use more of its amount than the lotion, which I thought I would have to use less. Despite of its thick consistency, once I put it on, it doesn’t feel heavy on my face at all. It feels as good as the lotion, but gives a bit more moisture on your face; especially, on the dry-windy-sunny days in Colorado. Thanks to Kim, Lancome rep from Macy’s at the Centerra in Loveland, who also strongly recommended me to try this product in addition to the lotion. I can't wait to use it in winter when I go skiing. I can tell that it will be perfect for it.

I am going to be 60 next mo. and need a better moisturizer for dry skin

Which one of Lancome's moisturizer's would you recommend for dryer skin? Currenty I am using the Genifique Repair at night over the Visionnaire and in the day I use the Renergie Lift Volumetry over the Visionnaire.
You seem to be on the right track of taking care of your skin. As for night time moisturizer, I love 'BIENFAIT MULTI-VITAL NIGHT:
High Potency Night Moisturizing Cream'. It definitely takes care of my dry flaky skin after a long skiing weekend. For day time in WINTER, I use ' BIENFAIT MULTI-VITAL SPF 30 CREAM'. In SUMMER, I use ' BIENFAIT MULTI-VITAL SPF 30 LOTION'. I have a sensitive-acne-prone skin and it gets even more dry when I moved to Colorado two years ago, but BIENFAIT moisturizer was my new discovery back in May of 2012, and I absolutely loved it since, because it doesn't make me break out and it keeps my skin nice and soft.

High Resolution Refill 3x,, is it good for a 25 yrs old of age?

I decide to try Lancome for my firts time, im 25yrs old, when i purchased they solde me the High Resolution Refill 3x,, is it good for my age? and does it have sun protection?
It won't have any effect on a younger skin; especially, if you're in your 20s. I'm in my late 30 and it still doesn't do anything besides only being a decent moisturizer, which I enjoy using it. It's good for skin that is over 45s.

HAS THIS CREAM SPF SUNSCREEN?

I HAVE USED LANCOME SINCE 2 YEARS AGO. I DID START WITH BIEN FAIT TOTAL, THEN I GOT HIGH RESOLUTION REFILL 3X SPF 15 SUNSCREEN, IT IS A VERY GOOD STUFF, BUT THE LAST TIME THAT I GOT IT (DECEMBER 2012), THE LABEL CREAM DID NOT SAY SPF SUNSCREEN AND THE BOX EITHER. COULD YOU TELL ME PLEASE IF THIS CREAM HAS SPF SUNSCREEN?
Not sure why your package doesn't say SFP 15; mine does. I got mine in May 2012.

Is this product suitable for young people whose no wrinkle?,( i'm 21 now )

I used this similar product from Lancome in my early 20's, but it didn't do anything for me, and now in my late 30's, it still doesn't do anything for me (I was using the Absolute Eye Precious Cell for five weeks). I think this stuff works for who's over 40 or maybe over 45 to see the result. For young skin like you, it won't do anything. The best way for you to take care of your skin around the eye area is the regular facial moisturizer that you have been using. I use most of Bienfait product line, and they seem to, overall, work best for me than a specific eye product. They're good for sensitive skin as well. :-)

does this product work for older people?

I don't want to keep paying for products that does nothing for the few wrinkles that I have. I have spent thousands of dollasrs and nothing seems to work.
It works much more effective in the older group of people than the younger group.

What exactly is LR2412?

The anti-aging potential of a new jasmonic acid derivative (LR2412): in-vitro evaluation using reconstructed epidermis. The human epidermis is known to thin with age while HA (hyaluronic acid) content has been reported to decrease. These results illustrate the potential of LR2412 in counteracting signs of skin aging.

What is the difference between Genifique and Visionaire?

I am 62 yrs old, how do I know which serum is best for my skin?
Genifique makes your skin look younger. Visionaire evens out your skin tone.

Does this product need to be used continually even after seeing results, in order to maintain good looking skin? Or can one bottle do the job?

I don't use it every day at all. Once I see the result, I stop using it for awhile. That's just me--when something works and cures, I will stop using it for awhile until I get acne scars again. However, do not use it on the new acne; let that area cure and dry itself out first, then apply Visionnaire onto it. One bottle lasts a long time. :-)

Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate & Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%]
 

What item do I apply 1st. ??

Genifique or Visionnaire
I would apply Genifique first for the overall area and then wait few minutes (or maybe up to 5 minutes) for the Genifique to be completely absorbed into your skin (this is to prevent the two products to make a reaction on your skin). Then use the Visionnaire on the focused areas with old acne scars or dark spots. I don't use Visionnaire for the whole face. I usually prefer to use the two products separately, because I have a very sensitive skin, so I'm trying not to use too many things on my face at the same time or I will break out. Hope this helps :-)
