Good Night Cream for Combo/Oily Skin
onApril 13, 2014
My favorite thing about this product isNon-Greasy, Hydrating, Good Value
Even though I'm over 50 I have great skin but its oily. Its been difficult to find an anti-aging night treatment that isn't too rich (oily) but that provides the hydration, radiance, and anti-aging benefits I crave. I had used samples of the day version with SPF and its just too rich for use with makeup so I was very surprised to find the night cream was matte but still rich and luxurious. I use this most nights and alternate with another (very expensive) cream when I want to treat myself. Its a great value considering the very large jar. I tend to use a little more than I need to because its not greasy. I've tried lots of high end night creams and this one is in my top 3. Its a great product for the money.

Re-Thinking the Application of the Products
onJanuary 23, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isAbsorbs quickly, great value, potent
I bought both serums during the promotion (great value!) and on the advice of some of the reviewers decided to use Genifique in the morning and Vissionaire at night. I had already been using samples of the Vissionaire in the morning and loved it. Even though I have combo oily, mature skin, I am very sensitive. Unfortunately using both products has caused some irritation (after about 2 weeks) . I'm going to give my skin a break and I will probably end up using only one product and only at night - possibly alternating between the two.
Just a word of caution for sensitive skins. In their own right, both products are great but may be too much as a pair.

Not As Expected
onJanuary 26, 2012
Pros: Wonderful Fragrance, easy to use, light
Cons: expensive, Performance
I'm a toner girl. My skincare regimen is not complete without one. I got this one in a promo with the mousse cleanser. But I'm not overly thrilled with it just yet. It has a lot greater alcohol content than I expected (first ingredient) and hasn't left me feeling ecstatic. I don't recommend it for dry or sensitive skin. I'm oily so the strength doesn't affect me. I just expected a lot more.

Fabulous Cleanser
onAugust 17, 2011
Pros: easy to use, light, effective, rinses easily
Cons: expensive
My favorite thing about this product isIts effective yet gentle on my oily skin and it feels wonderful.
I've tried just about every cleanser on the market; from drug store to high end luxury and this is my favorite. Even though I'm over 50, I still have very oily skin. So I need an effective, thorough cleanser (preferably one that doesn't sting my eyes) but that doesn't dry my skin. It has a great foam that's not wimpy or watery. This one delivers and I can use it all year long. Its a little pricey for 6.8 ounces but its worth it. I wish they offered it in a travel size.

Is It Too Rich for a Combo or Oily Skin

I'm a mature (52 years old) combo/oily skin that cannot go without using a toner and which toner varies from season to season. I love toners! I've read so many good things about this one. It sounds like a luxurious treatment product that I would love to try. Is it too rich for a combo/oily skin. I would primarily use it in the winter months and/or after deep exfoliation.

Which One is Best for Day & Night.

I want to take advantage of the Super Serums promotion but can't afford to use them both day & night. Which one would you recommend for night treatment and which for day? My thoughts were Genifique for night time because of its more potent nature?

Do I need to use a moisturizer with the Visionnaire serum?

Yes, you should use a moisturizer with the Visionnaire serum. Because it is a serum, which is a treatment product, it does not replace the need for a hydration or primer product. Visionnaire absorbs easily and quickly into the skin and shouldn't feel heavy for most skins.

is this product good to use with clarisonic?

I would recommend the Radiance Cream to Foam cleanser instead because it begins as a cream and turns into a foam when activated with water. The mousse is already a foam and may or may not give you the cleansing affect when applied to the Clarisonic. I just prefer a lot of foam/lather in my cleansers.
