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 cannot live without eclat miracle serum of light. I see that it was discontinued. Did this product replace it?

Since I own both I can tell you they are very different. They are both beautiful products but different. Eclat miracle can be used all over before makeup , you can mix it with you liquid foundation, it can go over it as a highlight. And has that soft pearl sheen. Hydra glow is a hydrating primer, that you do only before your face makeup and has no color. Yes it does give kind of a nice hydrated, healthy skin glow but it is definitely colorless. If you have normal/dry skin you would love Hydra glow as a primer but it definitely would not replace what Eclat miracle used to do with that pearly highlighting properties

Do you use this under or over moisturizer....or instead of a moisturizer?

RE: La Base Pro
You are supposed to use this over your regular daily moisturizer. This definitely can't be used instead of moisturizer since it has no skincare properties. Just apply your day moisturizer let it set for a bit and then apply thin layer of la base pro over it. After that you can apply your foundation , powder etc...

Which should I use - Dreamtone 1 or 2?

I have light skin with lots of freckles on top of freckles and even more sun spots but no real redness problem. Which Dreamtone number would be best for me? I don't have sallow skin and don't tan all that great to begin with. The sun spots are covering my entire cheeks.
You can use Dreamtone number 2. It has light pink tint to it and pink is great when it comes covering and neutralizing darkness and dark spots overall. Shade 1 is more yellow toned and is good for sallow dull looking skin. If you suffer from sun spots of course make sure to stay away from the sun and even if you are indoors make sure to wear sun protection . Lancome has great daytime cream with spf it's Bienfait multivital spf 30 or Bienfait UV spf 50

What will happen I used this with the Dreamtone?

What I mean my that is I have Bienfait Multi-Vital sunscreen lotion broad spectrum spf 30 moisturizer antioxidant and vitamin enriched. Will the Dreamtone be ok to used the this product.
Yes you can absolutely use Dreamtone with your Bienfait day cream. Make sure you apply Dreamtone before your moisturizer. You can also use Dreamtone at night.
It will even out your skintone and help with any kind of dark spots, sun spots, age spots, post acne redness, spots or scars. Dreamtone also helps makeup glide on much more easily. It is beautiful product and would be great addition to your Bienfait multivital spf 30. I also suggest using Bienfait multi vital night .

What would you recommend my skin products to be?

I am 28 years old and have 2 dark spots on my face from sun damage. I recently started using Dreamtone # 1. I would love to switch my beauty products over to Lancome. My skin type is on the dry side. I also have some blackheads on my nose. What would you recommend my skin products to be?
Thanks
I would suggest these products:

Creme radiance for cleansing, Tonique radiance as your toner. You can also add Lancome visionnaire serum - it is also great for smoothing the skin, evening out skin tone, makes pores smaller. For daytime you can use either Bienfait aqua or Bienfait spf 30 moisturizers - they are both phenomenal.

For night I would suggest trying Bienfait multivital night - it will give that extra moisturize and will make skin looking glowy and plumped in the morning.

Make sure you also moisturize around eyes - it is extremely important since the eye are is the first place where you can see sings of aging. My favorite is Genefique yeux eye cream - it is very moisturizing yet lightweight and beautifully illuminates eye area. The best eye cream I have ever tried.

Also if you suffer from congested skin, large pores and blackheads you can add Lancome Pure empreinte mask - it's a white clay mask that draws all the impurities out of your pores.

Also you need to exfoliate once a week and I suggest Exfoliance radiance - the most amazing scrub on the market. Gentle yet effective and leaves skin very clean and radiant looking - you will love this.

I hope you will be happy with your new Lancome skincare regimen.

i hav med skin tone (indian) with uneven skin tone , dark circles and brown moles. i hav been using Genifique , vissionaire, genifique yeaux for eyes

after using the above products i observed slight difference. now will dream tone work for me. if yes, then should i continue using genifique , vissionaire & gen. yeaux eye in combination with dream tone.
Yes Dreamtone would make a difference. You can still use combination of Genefique and Visionnaire during your nightime skincare routine (you can layer them by first applying Genefique and then Visionnaire) and Dreamtone in the morning before your daytime moisturizer . Genefique eye you can use both evening and morning.

I suffer with chloasma. Will dream tone product help or clear away brown patches?

I have skin that browns easily, I am not fair skin nor very dark skin.
Dreamtone will definitely even out your skin tone but for very dark chloasma spots I would suggest using Bright expert as a spot treatment at night and then using Dreamtone in the morning. Those two would make great combination. Also make sure to protect your skin from the sun SPF is a must when using any lightening products on your skin. (I suggest Lancome Bienfait UV spf 50)

How do I know what my skin tone is?

What do you mean by Fair or Medium? I have some color to my skim ( sun color) and of course dark stops that I want to hide. That is why I'm looking at the Dreamtone.
You can use shade number 2 which is good for medium skin tones or even light. Dreamtone when it's blended into skin does not leave any color so you can't really go wrong with any of the Dreamtone shades. medium shade has a little bit of pink tint to it so it covers and neutralizes dark spots very effectively. Lighter shade is more yellow and helps with dull and sallow skin tones. If you have problem with dark spots I highly suggest using SPF while being exposed to sun or even year around. Lancome has great Bienfait UV spf 50 lotion that's very lightweight.

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.
