Time saver. Skin looks GREAT. WORTH IT. EVERY PENNY. WORTH IT.
onOctober 7, 2012
My favorite thing about this product isImmediate results, Ease of application.
I had the temporary but quite heartbreaking circumstance earlier this year of my fantastic best friend / husband / beyond soul mate being in the hospital in the final stages of terminal illness. That's a grim beginning for this review, but it tells you the stress I was under, and we all know how awful hospitals are to be in, especially if you are pretty much living in your loved one's hospital room day and night.
This product had me looking GOOD quickly - cared for. One step. Put it on - and forget about it.
I am 53. Long time Lancome user. Long time.
I bought it quickly at the counter with no real guidance. While it does not say "BB"/beauty balm on it, this product goes far beyond any claim of any BB type product I've tried.
The only thing I would have done differently - had I had the focus to do so - would have been to either reapply it after about six hours or so - or have added a good Lancome moisturizer with sunscreen underneath. This product HAS sunscreen in it. I seemed to pick up more sun induced color during the time I was sitting near the hospital room window and driving back and forth to/from the hospital. - I'm saying I got more sun on my face during this time than I had in other normal circumstances and wearing either the Renergie foundation or my newest product love, the Absolue foundation.
What I just described may have had not much to do with this product. Don't know - just mentioning it.
I love the applicator on the tube for this product, It never failed me. No clog. No banging the tube to get the interior product near the whatever inside the tube to get the product to come out.
Blurs lines beautifully, Minimizes redness instantly - on me. Reduces appearance of pores right away. Made me look good under unflattering lighting. One never knows when some elusive doctor is dropping in to check on this and that - I was never in the bathroom or at the room window applying makeup touch-ups endlessly in a time consuming way . this product does go on easily and with a heavenly perfect (to me) amount of coverage right away. And it's one tube that fits in your purse, your tote bag, your whatever easily in case you've just got to carry only one product or two. Lightweight packaging that is still substantial. Never had it leak / cap fall off / dump product in any bag I was using.
I had to stop using the product for a while - months actually - after my husband died. It reminded me of being in the hospital. I'm back using it again. Had to run out tonight for a fast errand, and I did NOT do anything other than freshen my face with a quick rinse of water, run a cotton ball over it with one of the Lancome toners I love (that pink one is nice this October time of year for my fair and sensitive skin) and quickly, smoothly apply this product's lovely creme all over my face. It's an instant pick me up look to the skin.
I don't notice the firming qualities and that does not bother me. They are probably at work, which works for me.
The price was a bit staggering to me, but I bought it quickly when I needed something extraordinarily simple, and this product did the trick in a desperate time. I'll buy it again without hesitation. A little goes a long way - two pumps max gets me what I need for product to cover my face nicely, easily., completely. Of course no mask look at all.
Thank you Lancome for all your quality products - this one is a hero to me for many reasons. If one looks refreshed and good in a hospital setting under awful circumstances hours and hours daily and at night on end, then that's a tribute. I am NOT saying this is a long - wear product. It just works right away to make your skin look GOOD right away, and needed touch ups or refreshing after upmteen hours are easy and NOT time consuming at all.

What is the possible side effect of this cream, in a long range of using it.

I am a long time user of the creme but I do not use it daily. I use it several times a week and - because I carry a sample size with me during the day - I will use it for times when around my eyes seems to need a little extra help when fatigue kicks in. I have not had any side effects like irritated skin or anything - ever.

Eye cream good for face??

Description says "All facial zones are visibly tightened" -- Really? With an eye cream?
Might be a proofing error before descriptive copy got loaded onto web site. Can happen with tight deadlines! I use the eye cream- LOVE IT - and my eye area/ zone does get visibly tightened. I carry a sample size in my purse for when I look a little tired from what's going on in the day.

Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Treatment
 

syrum or moisture 1st.

I just purchased the Renergie moisture and also the Genifique. Which goes on my face 1st. thanks
I use serum first, plus the related eyecreme. I do something else for a few minutes to let the serum permeated my skin, then I go to moisturizer. etc. . I do like using serum on face, neck and upper chest. A little goes a long way.

What about Genifique? Should I use this serum at night only?

I purchased the set of Lancome with Visionnaire as the day serum but during my first introduction or facial , the salesclerk stated that
Genifique was used as the night serum. Do I need to use Visionnaire for both Day/night treatment?
I did not receive direct advice from a Lancome expert at the counter about Genifique, nor did i use the samples I received in Lancome gift bonuses over time.

But now I do. Use Genifique.

Love it. Love it. Love it.

I use Genifique both in the AM and the PM starting this winter of 2012.

. I also use a prescription retinoid every other night, and like how I can use Genifique when using the prescription retinoid.
No irritation at all.

Visionnaire is excellent, by the way. I am out of Visionaire, and have not replenished yet because of the continued good results I have from the Genifique 2x a day.

If I had both products - I know me, I know how both products work - for me (not everyone is the same) - and I know I would use both products this way for my age fifty something skin:
AM: Cleanse face
Apply Genifique
Apply Genifique eye creme (LOVE IT!)
Do something else for 2- 3 minutes that is part of my morning routine
Apply Visionnaire
Do something else for a minute or so
Apply moisturizer in areas where needed
Apply primer
Continue with basic daytime face and lips.

I always let any serum or treatment sit a minute or two or three so my skin has some extra time to let it absorb. No one has ever told me to do that - I just do.

Use that Genifique the way that makes the best sense to you. Same thing with Visionnaire. With either product - a little goes a long way. Both products last a long time before anyone needs to purchase again.

Can I use BIENFAIT MULTI-VITAL SPF 30 CREAM with this product?

Yes.
I use the Bienfait Multi-vital SPF 30 pump bottle version / lotion with the Absolute liquid make up foundation, and prefer the combination / like the feel and result. For summer, the Absolue foundation plus the Absolue moisturizer in the tall bottle were a bit too heavy in feel and in moisture for me. In winter it may be different. The Bienfait / Absolue combination for now is wonderful for my skin's needs. They work well together for me and may do so for you too if you already like and enjoy the Bienfait cream.

Who is this for? And when/how do you use it?

Tonique Douceur is for persons with normal to dry skin who don't like leaving any traces of makeup behind after cleansing the face. And who don't want the drying effects of alcohol - this product is Ph balanced and has no alcohol in it.

I use it after cleaning my face even when all I've had on all day was sunscreen and tinted moisturizer. I've used it after working out and after my shower - just to reset my skin's PH and to make my facial skin feel supple and not taunt from whatever soap was in the shower.

You use it after cleaning the face and before applying any skin treatments. Using a cotton ball over the top of the open bottle, tilt the bottle to moisten but not saturate the cotton ball. Set the bottle down, and wipe the cotton ball across the forehead to cover the entire area , then down the nose, across each cheek (make sure to wipe all the way to the hairline surrounding the face-makeup can hide in plain view there after cleansing) , around the lips and down the rest of the sides of the face to under the entire jawline.

Short version: wipe your entire face with the cotton ball w/ the T. Douceur on it , skipping the immediate eye area like lids and the tender skin underneath the eye, and plan to be a little stunned when you see the dirt on the cotton ball from what this product can and will pick up off your skin most times.

This product is an excellent toner. It leaves the skin supple without feeling stripped, and removes anything on the skin left by cleansers, as well as conditions the skin to be receptive to the next step in anyone's skin care routine.

Tonique Douceur is a modern classic. One of my parents has used it for decades. I use it., and we both have excellent skin. Good genetics? More like good skin care and staying out of the sun. Tonique Douceur is a core product to my skin care for a long time- and a little goes a long way. I use a prescription retinoid and this toner product of Lancome's has never, ever irritated my sensitive skin or interfered with the retinoid's job of reducing lines and other benefits.

Tonique Douceur has a fresh scent - pretty light - not a sporty scent nor a neutral scent. I like the scent and hardly notice it.

Have you released a new fragrance that smells exactly like Lancome AromaTonic - the lime green re-energizing spray?

I am not aware that Lancome has released a new fragrance that smells exactly like Lancome AromaTonic - the green re-energizing spray. I am enjoying the body lotion for the newer La Vie Est Belle fragrance - the lotion gives me a re-energized feel - love it.

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?

Because cells turn over and renew and then shed, I personally continue to use the Visionnaire with good results.

Have you stopped making primordiale eye skin recharge?

That is the eye cream I usually purchase but I'm unable to find it on your website now. Have you stopped making it? Is there a replacement product? What other eye care product would be the closest?
I personally like the High Resolution Eye Refill 3X product better than the Primordiale eye skin recharge. I am not aware that Primordiale eye creme is made anymore. I fell in love with High Resolution Eye Refill 3x eye creme because it helps reduce the lines I have developing in the eye area, it helps manage (I think it literally reduces) the swelling I can get underneath my eyes, and my dark areas under my eyes simply look better. As in a lot better. I am 53 and have fair skin, and the dark circles were pretty obvious. Not so much now. I like this creme a lot. A little goes a long way- I use my ring finger to pat it on.
