Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector
This slim bottle of blue futuristic-looking fabulousness came full of promises to ‘re-create a very beautiful skin that looks smoother, firmer and more even.’
What we say:
‘Imagine my delight when a bottle of Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector landed on my desk. This slim bottle of blue futuristic-looking fabulousness came full of promises to “re-create a very beautiful skin that looks smoother, firmer and more even”. It asked me if I was ‘tempted by a dermatological treatment but not quite ready’. Very clever marketing, don’t you think? Apparently, it owes its ‘power’ to LR 2412, a molecule designed to “trigger a series of micro-transformations that enhance the skin’s natural self-renewal process”. Whatever. All I know is the bottle is stunning and it goes on smooth and light, giving my skin that sort of soft-focus blur that is so helpful for women with less-than-perfect skin. It is highly fragranced – which I like in my products, but it might bother some women – especially if you don’t like the smell. But I love it, and have found over the few weeks I have been using it that certainly my skin – especially on my décolletage – is looking noticeably more refined and smooth. It claims to make pores look tightened too but I can’t say I have noticed that.
‘While I am not convinced it is living up to all its claims (‘wrinkles and skin imperfections appear reduced, pores look tightened, and complexion more even’) my complexion is definitely smoother and less imperfect. So yay for LR 2412!’
