Great light-weight, texture for oilier skin types
onSeptember 21, 2014
Pros: light weight, breathable, minimal sunscreen, skin looks healthy and not masked with make up
Cons: somewhat too hydrating, product being discontinued
My favorite thing about this product isLight-weight texture and feels natural on my skin. Doesn't have that make-up feel to it.
Please don't discontinue the Fresh Wear product. I bought several tubes when I heard it was being phased out. I do not like the 24 hour long-wearing formula as it has more coverage and not at all a replacement for Fresh Wear. Fresh Wear is the only foundation in the Lancome lineup that has minimal sunscreen and light-weight texture. Fresh Wear is breathable and great for acne-prone skin. Oily and oily/combination skin types like mine have a hard time finding foundations that are more matte and breathable. Adults still do have skin that breaks out and is oily. I would love it even more, though, if it did not have a sunscreen. I wear sunscreen when needed but my skin becomes irritated when worn consistently every day. I wish Lancome would develop foundations .... and moisturizers ... without sunscreen and geared specifically for oilier skin types. Please bring back this great Fresh Wear product with its expanded color range!! And, I might add please don't phase out the Rouge Glow blush. It's a classic shade and very natural looking.
Thank you.

Great for combination/oily skin no matter what a woman's age!
onSeptember 18, 2012
I've been using Renergie Lotion for a very long time. It is great for an oilier skin type or combination skin types. My face doesn't break out and the texture is light weight. Hydrates without being greasy. Love it!! Please don't discontinue this wonderful lotion. I have found nothing else that compares to this product. I like that this product isn't one of the higher technology anti-aging lotions. It's just a great hydrating and firming lotion. Thanks!

This product is light weight enough for combination / oily skin types but the formula is not suitable..
onSeptember 17, 2012
Translucence powder is no comparison to the Matte Finish that Lancome had in its line up. This new powder is supposed to maintain a matte finish and be good for oilier skin types. It is not. It has "moist" powders added to the powder for a creamier texture. The silkiness of the powder adds too much of a sheen effect. After the powder is on for a while, the skin's own oils naturally come through and the powder ends up looking pasty. Totally disappointed with this new powder. Lancome seems to be veering away from helping anyone with skin types that are oilier and/or combination oily. Took away the Pure Focus. Took away the Matte Finish. Took away the foundations of long ago that were excellent. New is not always better. Bring back the formulas that truly worked. Hopefully, the Renergie lotion will not be taken away. The Aqua Vital lotion still isn't light-weight enough for oiler skins.

Excellent cleanser - it's by far better than Clinique or Lauder
onMarch 15, 2012
Pros: Wonderful Fragrance, easy to use, Immediate Results, light, Good Ingredients, deep cleans, truly is formulated for oily skin, skin looks healthy, rinses well and does not leave a filmy residue, doesn't leave a moisturizing barrier on the skin
Cons: expensive
My favorite thing about this product isI like the way it lathers. After washing, my face feels very clean and no filmy residue is left behind.
This is a great cleanser for oily skin. I just found out, though, that it is being discontinued. Why? Other lines do not perform the same as the Pure Focus. I have been loyal to this product and finding out it is being discontinued is very disappointing. It's hard to imagine that Lancome would want to send customers to other skin care lines. Nothing compares to Pure Focus. I don't understand why Lancome would discontinue an entire line for those of us with oily skin types. We need those products that are made specifically for us. Our skins do not fall into the "normal to oily" category. We are oily. Period. Please keep this line at the cosmetic counter and available on line. Thank you.

Which concealer would I need to use when taking photographs?

So many concealers actually "shine" through the foundation when taking photographs - particularly photos that require flash. Many photos look as if I have complete consealer circles around my eyes.... Looking for one that is "photogenic" if you will.

Thank you!
Concealer should look natural. Too light of a shade will create that "circle" around your eyes. Use the Flash Retouche concealer pen and choose a shade closest to your own skin tone. Don't apply foundation to the eye area where concealer will be applied. This concealer has a highlighting effect and brightens the eye area without looking like you are wearing concealer. If you cannot find a shade in this pen formula, then use a shade of the Maquicomplet and pick a shade of the Flash Retouch to apply over the Macquicomplet.
