Lancome Visionnaire LR 2412 Review

LancĂ´me Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%] Advanced Skin Corrector is an anti-ageing skin treatment that helps to minimise the appearance of wrinkles, tighten and reduce pores, and produce a more resilient, even skin tone on all skin types and ethnicities. 

Formulated with LR 2412, a unique new molecule born out of 12 years of research, it has the ability to ‘self-propel’ through the layers of the skin, recognising skin damage and triggering the skin’s repair process. As a result, skin is visibly transformed: the texture is finer, wrinkles are visibly erased, pigmentary irregularities are reduced, and pores are tightened.

It can be used on all skin types, even on sensitive skin and around the eye contour.The packaging and the pump bottle looks beautiful on my dresser. It was oozing quality and lux.

The texture of serum was smooth, luminent and had a pearl through it which looked and felt luxurious.

The product does not disappoint, from the moment I applied it to my fingertips to smearing it all over my face it felt luxurious, My skin felt it was being spoilt, absorbing every single drop of the serum, feeling supersmooth and supple.

The impact on my skin was tremendous within the first week, I had neglected my skin for about 6 weeks whilst I had my middle finger in a strap during the day and a removeable cast at night so my skin regime was barely existent. Within those 6 weeks my skin went from great to ‘havoc please help me!’. 

Within the first week of applying Lancome’s Visionnaire Advanced SKin Corrector, the redness on my cheeks, nose and chin had reduced by half, the surface of my skin had started to smooth and the tone was returning back to normal, if not better. Two weeks later, my skin was starting to look amazing. There is still a bit of congestion on the chin with some redness but I truly believe it will take a little longer for my skin to recover from the short term neglect.

My overall rating - 9/10

Benefit - Foamingly Clean Facial Wash Review

Suitable for an oily complexion and problem skin. This 1-step facial wash effectively cleanses the skin and removes make-up and impurities with a soft gentle lather. It contains amino acid and plant derivatives known to enhance moisture retention. This one step gentle facial wash leaves the skin with a radiant complexion.

This product is by far the best I have ever used! I have always struggled with blemished skin. After using this product, my face is has cleared up and skin feels supple.  It always leaves my face smooth and clean! It works great a few times a week with the facial scrub mixed in.

However, there is one downside to the wonderful product, what is with the tube?  When 3/4 of the product is used it is virtually impossible to get the rest out.  You can't squeeze it out or shake it out.  It has to be cut open, mind the fingers, and this is a difficult task to do.  The tube is made out of thick plastic and is a challenge to cut it open without the chance of cutting your fingers. Anyway, once I cut the tube open I was really surprised with the amount of product that was still left inside.  For the price I pay for this product I would expect ease of product use.

I have provided feedback to the concession store in Myer and I was told that they get that alot of people have been giving the same feedack.  So, I'm waiting to find out if they will listen to their customers.

My overall rating - 5/5 for the product and texture of the wash, 2/5 for the ease of access of product.
