First thoughts on Lancome Visionnaire: WOW.

Lancome Visionnaire Serum

I’m really trying not to be too gushy about this product because I have only been using it for five days - and not the recommended four week minimum to reap the full skincare benefits – and so I am trying to remain objective until I come back with a full report. But it’s hard, because OH MY GOD IT’S BEAUTIFUL AND I LOVE IT AND I NEED IT AND IT’S MINE!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, bugger.

But it really is, you know. Beautiful. Just look at it. And lest you think I’m shallow, I was all het up about this little beauty long before I clapped eyes on its sleek silver and aqua bottle. Because let’s face it: it’s hard not to be excited about this particular product launch, especially if you’re a hardcore beauty junkie like myself.

Twelve years in development, Lancôme’s Visionnaire contains a brand new beauty molecule, LR 2412, that has been INDEPENDENTLY TESTED by scientists at Manchester University for proven efficacy - they said they were “impressed with what we saw.”

LR 2412 is multi-tasking because it has multiple effects within different areas of the skin.  And as a result, Visionnaire can target several different skincare concerns at once:  billed as an ‘advanced skin corrector serum’, it can reduce wrinkles, minimise pores, correct pigmentation irregularities and restore radiance.

Proven to be as effective as retinol, it’s also more gentle on the skin: it can be used around the eyes, and on all skin types, even the most sensitive.

I know, right? WOW. There’s loads of science and research behind it and I suggest you check out this short little video clip for more.  

I was sent it to trial and have been using it for five days, which is obviously not long enough to give you a considered review. But already I see a difference in the texture and tone of my skin: I feel fresher, and brighter, and did I already say wow? Because…wow.

Lancome Visionnaire Serum Swatches
Visionnaire is a lovely light pearlescent fluid that's easily absorbed.
For now, and as of last week, Visionnaire is available exclusively from Lancôme counters at Brown Thomas stores in Ireland, and Selfridges in the UK. It launches worldwide from September 1st, priced at €70 for 30 ml of product.

Now €70 euro is spendy, so I suggest you rush on over to the Lancôme Facebook page to sign up for a FREE 10-day-trial to try before you buy -- and please, do come back and tell me what you thought. I’ll be back in 3 weeks to give you a more considered opinion. Which I’m hoping can be summed up as: WOW!
