PHENOMENAL!
onAugust 11, 2014
My favorite thing about this product isHealthy glow
So far the best primer I've tried for normal and dry skin that needs that pick me up. It is very lightweight but gives nice boost of hydration while giving healthy radiant look - no it does not have shimmer in it so if you are afraid you will look shimmery or glittery no worries about that. it just has very subtle pigment in it that gives glow of a healthy radiant skin. absolutely love it and highly recommend it! it works wonders with both Teint miracle and Teint visionnaire. It smooths the skin and preps it without that heavy silicone feeling that most of the primers have. So happy to see this addition to Lancome line!

Great for dry skin
onMarch 22, 2014
This is very thick and creamy lotion, I am not sure it can be called lotion at all. It is between butter and a lotion texture wise. Even though it has such a thick texture it's easy to spread. Does not absorb immediately so I like to use it before going to bed. It takes a while to absorb but leaves skin very soft and moisturized. Great choice for brutal Chicago winter when my skin is super dry and needs all the help possible.
I like the packaging too. It's nice squeeze out tube and has 6.8 oz or 200ml. With daily use it would last about a month, not longer. But since it provides such a great moisture you can easily use it every other day or for example three times a week, even if your skin is very dry. For skin that's not so dry this could be more of a occasional "treatment". I also like to use it after hair removal on my legs, to soothe and moisturize irritated skin. Scent is soft but noticeable, hard to describe -light floral would be my best guess. Nothing that would interfere if you are wearing a fragrance. I like to stay away from lotions that mess up scent I am wearing. It has to be either very light and neutral or exactly the same lotion as the fragrance I am wearing.
I like using Nutrix royal after Lancome exfoliant fraichelle since it does leave my skin slightly dry and has no residue. Then I have feeling that Nutrix royal can be absorbed the best. I wish Lancome would have even more body products. I would love to try their self tanners since I've heard some great things about them.

SIMPLY THE BEST
onMarch 22, 2014
My favorite thing about this product isEfficiency
Yes this is simply the best eye makeup remover out there. Nothing else does not even come close. Extremely efficient even if you wear super heavy makeup, yet very gentle and great even for sensitive eyes. Absolutely love it.

The most amazing cleanser on the market!
onMarch 22, 2014
I have tried many cleanser but Creme radiance beats them all! It has great texture, very silku and so little goes a long way. It foams up like no other which makes it perfect pair with Clarisonic. It removes everything very easily and leaves skin feeling clean but never dried out or tight. It is great choice for normal or combination/oily skin. It also does a great job leaving skin glowy, just that healthy skin glow. It does give radiance. HIghly recommended! Once you try it you will never go back to any other cleanser.

Great beauty balm
onMarch 22, 2014
Cons: no lighter shades
My favorite thing about this product isLightweight with good coverage
Bienfait is the best tinted moisturizer/Beauty balm I have tried. Coverage is medium to full even with one thin layer. So unexpected! Texture is creamy and moisturizing. Even if I do not put moisturizer under it still give me enough moisture and does not enhance any dry areas on my face.
Application is very easy -I always use only my fingers. Blending is also no problem, it does not dry fast so there is enough time to blend it nicely. I never use any setting powder on top - I like glowy finish it gives.
Also has SPF30 so makes it even more versatile, because you don't need to purchase another product for sun protection.
I HIGHLY recommend this product if you can find your shade and your skin is dry/normal and eventually combination -I think it would be too moisturizing for oily skin. Also if you want very good coverage , lightweight feel and SPF this would be great choice.
The only problem is lack of lighter shades.

The best serum out there
onMarch 22, 2014
I have been using Visionnaire for almost a year and it's about time to share my thoughts with you. It is probably one of my best skincare investments so far. Why do I say that? It makes my skin incredibly smooth, silky and glowy. When I say glowy it's more of a instant thing - formula has slight of a silver/pinkish glow to it but no visible shimmer. Texture is very lightweight and absorbs immediately. I love applying it prior to makeup. It really creates perfect canvas for any kind of liquid or powder foundations, or tinted moisturizer (or whatever you like to use). Another thing that I noticed is that it keeps my acne under control. As soon as I stop using it I break out. Also one of the major things is that it lightens and smooths post acne scars I even had people commenting how my skin looks so much better and that my acne scars are much less visible. I always use it in the morning and then in the evening I use Genefique. I know Lancome is big on layering serums and they recommend first applying Genefique and then to follow with Visionnaire

great primer
onOctober 7, 2013
My favorite thing about this product issilky texture
Silicone based primer that smooths lines, covers pores and makes skin soft as silk. Glides easily and sets fast. Really works wonders to prep the skin for the makeup. And the amount you need is so tiny you will not believe it.

Wonderful concealer for dark circles
onOctober 7, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isCoverage
Effacernes provides great coverage with very creamy texture that's easy to blend. Does not set into lines. If you have dark circles this will be your new best friend. Variety of colors makes it easy to find your perfect shade. Packaging is wonderful since you will never get more product out than you actually need. And the amount - 15 ml will last you forever! Great value for the money!

My favorite thing about this product isFresh glow
Exfoliant Fraichelle is a nice scrub that's mild enough for dry and sensitive skin yet effective enough to soften the skin and leave it refreshed. It is more of a shower scrub meaning it's a in between shower gel and a body scrub. It foams up more than I expected and it's not as thick or harsh as usually body scrubs are. So if you are looking for something in between these two or for a 2 in 1 product Exfoliant Fraichelle is a nice choice.
First time I tried it I was actually worried that it won't be effective enough becase right out of the tube it feels and looks like there are no buffing grains at all. It has lightweight gel texture. Interesting thing is the more you rub it in it seems it has more and more buffing grains. Like they are suddenly there out of nowhere.
Tube is convenient to hold in hand and it's easy to squeeze the product out.
I love using Lancome nutrix royal body lotion after this.

My favorite thing about this product isbrush and excellent formula
I have every single shade from Vernis in love line and LOVE them! I have a tons of other professional nail polishes and other high end ones but after trying Lancome I am not going back to any other brand. Brush is revolutionary! It is wide but it fans on the side so you get perfect rounded line around the cuticles. It helps get perfect professional looking manicure at home. It is also the longest lasting nail polish on the market. No chips even after 4 days and I cook clean wash my hands often... I am so impressed and highly recommend them. Great job Lancome

I have a sample of Fisionnaire 2412 but not sure how to use it. When, where, how often

You can use it daily all over your face. You can use it in the morning before your day moisturizer or in the evening before your night cream , or you can do both AM and PM. You should cleanse your face, use toner, then follow with Visionnaire. So after cleansing and before moisturizing.

[LR 2412 4%]; Advanced Skin Corrector; Wrinkles - Pores - Evenness
 

I recently note Visionnaire have new products, a pre corrector liquid and an emulsion, how do I use these, I just love the serum and use regularly.

I use the Visionnaire serum twice daily under my moisturiser or night cream but recently came across the pre-corrector fluid and emulsion in the Visionnaire range at an airport. I'm confused as to how to use these. I have dry/dehydrated skin generally.

IF you are talking about Visionnaire blur it is used after Visionnaire and a moisturizer, it is being used instead of your regular makeup primer.

Can I use visionnaire for skin hyperpigmentation?

which of your product is best for hyper-pigmentation?
Yes you can it would definitely help but I would suggest using Visionnaire in the evening and Dreamtone in the morning. Dreamtone would certainly make more difference. If you would like to spot treat hyper pigmentation try using Bright expert.

Visionnaire

When do I use this? And do I put it all over my face? I received this as a sample and am not sure exactly what it does or what it is for. I have combination skin, olive complexion and am 63. I love the Lancome products. Thank you.
You can use it both morning and evening. You apply it all over your face after you cleanse and tone. Follow with day moisturizer in the morning and night cream in the evening. Visionnaire is a serum that helps promote brighter and more glowing complexion, reduces appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores.

Which color should I order of Bienfait Tiente Balm

I am 61 and have highlighted blond hair and usually wear a porcelain color foundation, but would like something just slightly darker as I have been getting a bit more sun lately. Your reviews from older women are especially helpful!
If you wear porcelaine I think you can either go with Clair that is slightly darker but leans more pink or Naturale which is more neutral/beige but much darker than any other porcelaine foundations. I attached photo of how Naturale looks

How do you use it and is it good for dry skin?

I got an example of visionaire, but not the instruction how to use it? What steps I have to do before I apply this product to my face.
Thank you in advance

You should first cleanse and tone your face and then apply Visionnaire serum. You can follow with your moisturizer. You can use it both morning and evening. It is great for any skin type

Breaks out?

Hi, I received this product as a gift and after only using it for 3 days my skin feels super oily and I feel pimples coming. Is this not made for daily use?
It is made for daily use but it is for normal and especially for dry skin . You should follow with toner.

can I use this on top of my eyelids?

Can I use this as a base on my eyelids
You can use it on top of your eyelids to conceal and correct uneven skin, little broken capillaries etc... But I do not think it would work so well as a base as opposed to Aquatique which really works well as a primer and holds eyeshadow a as a magnet.

Just bought today. Forgot to ask how you apply it to your face.

You should apply it after your moisturizer in a thin layer all over your face. You can use your fingers to apply (you do not need more than a pea size). Wait for couple of minutes and then follow with your foundation (any kind of liquid or powder foundation, or tinted moisturizer, bb cream etc...)
