Improves Skin
onJuly 23, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isThe texture (feels great on skin)
This product smells wonderful. I usually do not like overly floral smells, but while it does smell like flowers, it is a long lasting, light floral smell. The look of my skin has improved in most areas. My only concern (keeping it from getting a five start rating) is my chin. When I use only this, my chin gets dry and flaky. I have tried adding other items to prevent the dryness, but then my chin breaks out. I expect perfection from such an expensive product. If the price was lower, I would not mind adding something else (assuming I found something that did not break my skin out). I would recommend this if your skin is not too dry or if you do not mind supplementing an additional cream for extra moisture.

Works
onJune 20, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isSkin looks great
My skin looks younger, pores look smaller, lines are reduced, and I have an overall healthy glow. I use this product in combination with Bright Expert every evening. In the morning, I use Genifique. The combination of all three has done wonders for my skin. I would definitely recommend everyone try this product. Unlike Genifique where you see noticeable results right away,it takes a little longer before you see results from this. Anything less than a deluxe sample may not show someone the products full potential.

A Must Buy
onJune 20, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isSkin looks better
I have been using this in conjunction with Bright Expert every morning. Then, I use Bright Expert and Vissionaire at night. All three are working together to really help my skin. This is the one I notice the most immediate difference with. My husband who always claims I look the same finally noticed that my skin is looking a lot better. Dark spots are fading, tone is balancing, breakouts are far less frequent, lines look lessened. I could go on and on about how great these products are working, but I would just suggest you try them. If you only try one of the three, try Genifique. My skin glows with this stuff.

Great cc cream
onJune 14, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isNatural Looking
I had just bought a new cc cream from a different skincare (not makeup) brand right before I received this and a blush as a gift with purchase. Knowing I should use the other product up first before I sampled this, I put it away. I could not wait much longer than a week before I opened it anyway. I am glad I did. While the color does not match as well as my other one (since it was a gift and did not let me pick the color), it looked great. I am guessing Shade 1 will look even better. Now, can I resist the temptation to buy it in what is likely my proper shade before I finish the other product I have!?
It almost looks sheer, so it does not look like you're wearing makeup (as long as you have the right color that is, since I could see where the shade mismatched beyond blending on my neck). While it does have a natural look, it evens my complexion out except the really dark spots (which Bright Expert is currently working its magic on).
For those wanting full coverage, I would add foundation.
For those wanting light coverage without showing dark spots or blemishes, I would add concealer.
For those who want a natural look and are just looking to even your tone, put this on directly over your serum(s) and go.
*Hopefully, it helps lift my skin too, but that is a little hard to review after one use.

Super Moisturizing
onJune 12, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isSuper hydrating
Bought this for my super dry skin. Absolue Premium Bx was moisturizing it well, but I wanted something thicker for really dry moments. This is the cream for that. It is super shiny, so I only use it at night. By the time I wake up in the morning, my skin has absorbed so much moisture. My skin has never felt softer in my life. I will probably buy this for life. I wish it smelled a little better, but I know they do not want to mess with this classic cream. It has a strong fragrance I would never choose to wear, but the smell goes away while you are sleeping.

Nice feeling cream
onJune 10, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isGlows without shine while moisturizing
If you want a thick nourishing cream that goes on matte while deeply moisturizing, this is that cream. When my skin is really dry (and I do not mind shiny skin), I use Nutrix. When it is only slightly dry, I use this. I probably use more of this than I should, because it feels better when it is thicker. It smells great (unlike Nutrix). I do have combination skin, so I usually use Beinfait for the day time, since it moisturizes while going on light.
My skin always looks nicer overall (literally glows) when I use this, so I think it does everything it promises. It is my HG night cream when my skin is not too dry.

Best Product Ever
onJune 10, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isWorks well wet or dry
Lancome makes a lot of great products. This is my favorite. It works as well wet as it does dry. I mostly use dry it on top of foundation when getting ready at the house. Living in Vegas (hot), I hate carrying foundation with me for touch ups. If I need more than a powder touch up while out, I just wet the sponge and am good to go. It feels great on the skin whereas some products feel dry. Takes away shine in an instant when used dry. If you want a natural look (with a little help), this really is the only product you need to own. I love the way it smells too unlike my cc cream from another brand. I will be trying the Regenerie tinted moisturizer once said cc cream is gone.

Nice set
onJune 10, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isThree Full Size Products and a Bag
The best part of this set is all three products are full size. It is hard to tell from the picture since the caps are off the liner, but it is full size as well. The red lipstick is beautiful and has a slight glimmer, so it is less matte than the average Color Design Lipstick. I only have two small complaints, neither of which are worth deducting any points.
The first is that the liner, Spiced Apple, is not well suited for the lipstick color. It does not match as well as Rougelle (a different liner I own) matches it. Spiced Apple seems more like an orange red whereas the lipstick seems like a blue red. I have cool undertones, so I doubt I will buy a lipstick to match the liner. Therefore, I am not sure at this point it will come in handy. The gloss and lipstick alone are worth more than the set cost, so it is not too big of a deal.
The second is that the liner does not lay flat in the bag. It only fits diagonally. I wish the bag was a little bigger. This is not too big of a deal as a liner will lay flat once it has been sharpened a few times.

Really works
onJune 10, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isAffordable compared to other serums
Buying a serum without sampling it first is not something I normally do. However, I really wanted to try this, and I could not find a sample anywhere. I am so glad I took the plunge. This product really works. I have some pink spots from old acne and a bothersome brown spot that appeared out of nowhere two years ago. Bright Expert is lightening both, and it has not even been a month yet. I doubt it will completely remove them, but as long as this keeps lightening them, I will keep buying this product.

Best lip liner ever
onJune 10, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isCreamy (for a pencil)
I am obsessed with this. I am always buying new colors, so I have more of these than lipsticks. Crazy, I know. Spiced Apple is the only color I own that I am not overly fond of, since I have cool undertones and it must have a warm one. This glides on so effortlessly. It is creamy, so it blends easily. Despite being creamy for a pencil (which my lips appreciate), it has great staying power. My liner outlasts my lipstick every time. Thanks to blending, I never look like someone who lined her lips and forgot to fill it in with lipstick.
Sometimes, I even fill in my entire lips in with liner, so it still has a full lipstick look long after the lipstick fades. You cannot do that with most liners, because your lips would feel too dry. The creaminess of this liner never leaves a dry feeling.

Is the eye mask for one time use?

ETA-
The mask is reusable. You should use it once a week according to the directions. I am guessing it will last as long as the balm lasts, which I am predicting (read the last answer already posted) will be about a year.

If you're using Bright Expert in addition to Genifique and Visionnaire, in what order should you use these products?

I will be using Genifique concentrated serum, Visionnaire serum and Bright Expert. I also use a Vitamin C & E thicker serum in the morning (made by another company). I use other products but these are the only serums.
My question is in what order should these go on? I'm assuming the Vitamin C & E serum should go on last in the morning before my Dreamtone because it is thickest. However, in what order do I apply the Bright Expert, Genifique and Visionnaire? I will most likely only use the Genifique in the morning and the Visionnaire at night or vice versa. I just need to know if the Bright Expert goes on first or after these serums.Thank you
I use Genifique on the morning. since it provides more immediate results. In the evening, I use Vissionnaire, since it works more long term. Bright Expert and Dream Tone are very similar, so I would not use them at the same time. I was using Bright Expert until Dream Tone was released, and I switched. I still have Bright Expert left, since I could not wait to try Dream Tone. As soon as I have four full weeks of Dream Tone in, I will finish off my Bright Expert before completely stopping it. Generally, I would not encourage someone to use more than two serums at a time. However, you may be able to keep your Vitamin C and E serum as your third. More than that and you are just putting too much on your face when you add toner, face cream and makeup.

My suggestions for you:
Morning- Genifique followed by Dream Tone followed by Vitamin C and E
Evening- Vissionnaire followed by Dream Tone followed by Vitamin C and E

Once you have done that for four solid weeks, I would substitute Dream Tone with Bright Expert for four weeks. That would prevent you from using four serums at a time. It also gives you a solid chance of seeing which you prefer without wasting product. You could also alternate between Bright Expert and Dream Tone from morning to evening, but you will have a harder time determining which one is doing better for your skin. Vissionnaire and Genifique do different things for the skin, so you will be able to see what they're doing.

Is Bright Expert a targeted treatment or is it to be applied all over the face?

I just purchased Bright Expert for some acne/hyperpigmentation spots. Should I apply it only on those spots or is it for all over the face like Dreamtone? Thank you
Both. If you have just a few stubborn spots you want to fade, you can spot treat them. Your face will have a more beautiful overall glow and color correction if you use it all over though. I started with Bright Expert but have moved on to Dream Tone. Bright Expert did work well for a while. Dream Tone is picking up where Bright Expert left off.

Is the eye mask for one time use?

This is an eye balm, not a mask. It is a generous size, so I am estimating it will last about a year with twice daily use. I just picked one up tonight, so I do not know if it is great yet. The face cream that compliments it is fantastic though.

Is this product suitable for acne prone skin?

I am fairly young but my acne and years of not protecting it has caused some fine lines and dark spots and well as a slight rough texture. My acne treatment includes a retinoid at night and bp cream in the morning as well as a sunscreen. So, my worry is if this product may clog pores or be to oily. But, also is only daytime wear only acceptable?
You can wear this day or night. If you are choosing between the two, I suggest day. It gives more immediate results than some of the other serums. At night, I use Vissionaire. I have acne prone skin (that is very dry in some parts and very oily in others). After I started using this and other Lancôme products, I noticed my acne started improving. Whenever I skip steps, my acne returns. Although, I cannot know for sure how it will work with the combination of items you are using to treat acne, I am guessing it will still help overall. I would suggest waiting until or searching for a gift with purchase. Lately, almost all of them include a Genifique option. You can buy something you know works for you while you sample the Genifique. If you like it, buy the full size later. As far as the dark spots go, I do not suggest Genifique. I was using Bright Expert, which was working great at first until it stopped. I am now trying DreamTone. Unfortunately, I had to buy the full price bottles of both without sampling them first, because I wanted to brighten the spots and could not find a sample of either anywhere. Good luck. If I remember, I can come back in three weeks to tell you how DreamTone is going. I've been using it less than a week, so it is too early to offer advice.

For best results, what's the best time (Day or Night) to use Absolue L'Extrait?

I use it day and night. I add a sunblock (Bienfait) if I will be spending anytime outdoors during the daytime. I usually add a little extra moisturizer at night time, since I want a heavier product to prevent my chin from flaking.

What about oily skin?

I have just ordered Absolue L'Extrait because it sounds like such a phenomenal product. Although I am 65, my skin does tend to be oily. I am hoping L'Extrait won't be too heavy for my skin. What other Lancome products may I use in conjunction with L'Extrait since I have Visionaire along with several other serums and creams.
I love the way this product feels on my oily skin. My dry skin on the other hand (especially on my chin) does not feel as great with this. I think you should try it. I use it in combination with Genifique and Bright Expert in the morning. I use Vissionaire and Bright Expert in the evening. I usually add a little Nutrix or oil to my chin in the evening, since I personally need the extra moisture. I also add a sunblock (Bienfait) on days when I go outside. Even with two serums, sunblock, and an eye cream, this never feels too heavy for me.

I just ordered absolue premium bx gift set a few weeks ago and it had a night creme in it also.

I love both daytime and nightime absolue creme's but i like the night time absolue better even for daytime i wish that the big one was the night creme although i had never used it before until i got the gift set but anyway what i want to know is can't i wear the night creme in the daytime under my absolue bx foundation? I know the night creme does not have spf but the foundation i would wear over it does have spf so i do not see a problem but thought i would ask what other people think because i have just found lancome a few weeks ago and i absolutely love it. Of course i will use all of the big day creme 1.7oz. before i buy a big night creme. But anyway what do you think about my question? I would appreciate your answers. Oh and i love the smells of the creme's i do not see why some peole seem to gripe about them they are wonderful. Thank You
Yes, you can wear this during the day time. If there is SPF in your foundation, that should be enough for commuting. That said, I would add a real sunblock like Bienfait if you will be outside for more than commuting.

Is there any age factor that should be using this night cream ABSOLUE NIGHT PREMIUM ΒX

I think you are never too young to take care of your skin. Preventive treatment is much better than restorative treatment later. If you can afford it (I know I could not when I was 18-24), you should buy it. There are other great creams that you could try. Bienfait is very affordable and has lovely qualities of its own. This is a little thicker than Bienfait, so I feel it moisturizes better. Nutrix is the best moisturizer in the brand and lowest price per ounce. It leaves you really shiny and does not smell great, so only use it at night.

How do you apply this product?

Apply a light layer all over the face and neck after washing and toning skin. If pairing with another serum like Genifique, apply this serum second. This is always the last serum I use (since I always use two at a time). Top with the moisturizer of your choice.
