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!

Get your glow form head to toe
onSeptember 6, 2013

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

Very nice natural looking mascara
onAugust 22, 2013
My favorite thing about this product isgreat brush
First thing to be noticed about Doll lashes - except super cute packaging is interesting brush. It is "cone shaped" - thinner on one end and thicker on the other. I love love this idea. With the tinner side I can easily reach all the tiny lashes in the corners and it's also great for the lower lashes. Wider side is great for the outside longer lashes. Another thing about the brush - bristles are so soft and dense. I love dense brushes, they "hug" each lash nicely.
Formula is not dry or wet - just perfect when it comes to texture. After it dries lashes stay soft. I like that. Color is called So Black! (how chic). I would call it plain black. It's not that dark grey that they try selling as black neither really dark dramatic black (my favorite).
It does not curl or hold the curl well. I had to curl my lashes before and after the application.
It does not smudge or flake during the day.
I would categorize this mascara as daytime. At least for me or for someone who likes their lashes thick, long, curled and dramatic. If you are more into natural look and looking for mascara that's easy to apply without need of special application you will like Doll lashes.

Do I need to use sunscreen with Dreamtone 3?

I used to used a spot corrector that stated in the brochure must be used with sunscreen 25 or higher to avoid dark spots from becoming darker with exposure to the sun. Is this an issue with Dreamtone and if so what is the SPF you recommend?
This won't be a problem with Dreamtone since it's not such a aggressive kind of a lightener but you should still use SPF

Can I use it on my eyelids?

Is it for face area only, or can I use it on my eyelids as well to keep my shadow from smearing alllllll over the place. Thanks.
It is not supposed to be used on eyelids. Lancome has Aquatique that is waterproof primer specifically meant for your eyelids.

It has huge variety of colors and there are meant for both cool, warm and neutral undertones. Colors that have W next to the shade name are meant for Warm (yellow) undertones. Ones with C are for cool (pink) undertones. Ones with N are for neutral.

HOW DO I APPLY LA BASE PRO AND ADVANCED GENIFIQUE

When you cleanse and tone your skin you apply Genefique. After that you apply your day moisturizer and then after that you apply La base pro, right before you apply your makeup.

Yes you need water to use this product. Damp your face, gently massage over entire face (I would avoid eyes) and then rinse out. Follow with toner.

Does this work on oily skin?

Hi
I have very oily eyelids and need something to remove all the oil to prevent eye infections which I have had from clogged eyelid pores. Can I use this, or will it cause problems?
I got it in my free gift thinking that it was the "oily" skin product, so I am clearly disappointed that this is what was sent to me today.thank you
This is FACE cleanser specifically formulated for normal to dry skin. It is not eye makeup remover. If you need something to remove makeup from your lids I suggest using Lancome Bifacil.
