This product is amazing... No matter if you're oily or dry or even combination! I worked with Lancôme for a very long time and I truly believe that when I use this I get amazing results.. The key thing with this serum is that you have to use it everyday to get results or else you'll see nothing change. I love the texture of it! Very smooth and easy to blend... Plus the nice thing is how well the pump is made!! Very user friendly and it helps conserve the product because it doesn't distribute to much at a time! The smell is very pleasant!! Not strong what so ever which is nice because I'm sensitive to a lot of different fragrances! I had a lot of acne scaring and freckles and I'm not going to lie and say that I put it on my face and the next morning I had Jennifer Lopez's face.. But I will say it faded all of them and only a few spots are still noticeable but it's partly my fault because I get lazy with my routine which isn't a good thing if someone wants results plus it's kind of wasteful not to use it everyday and trust me this serum is very expensive.. The nice thing is a little goes a long way!!! I would recommend you go to your local Lancôme counter and get a sample of this!! Trust me!! It's great!

Lancome sure knows how to make a gorgeous bottle. That's about all I got out of this, a pretty bottle on my vanity. I've never had a cream dry out my skin as badly as this did, 2 days after starting to use this stuff, and the skin around my nose was cracked and raw. I cut down to applying every other day, then once a week. My skin just hated something about this stuff. It smells wonderful, the consistency is spot on. But the formula didn't work for me.

I have a serious love/hate relationship with this product! I love the way it feels and makes my face look but I hate the price!! I have used this product for 2 years now. As for anti-wrinkle properties, I can't really tell it does much. However, my face looks absolutely radiant, acne scars are gone, smaller pores, and I no longer get breakouts.

Since it is so pricey, I tried cutting this out of my beauty routine and after a month my face was dull, broke out, and makeup just didn't blend as nicely. It's hard to say exactly what this does .... especially since it is SO hard to find an actual ingredient list, but it is a noticeable difference!

I tried this and didn't like it at didn't seem to do anything but gave me clogged pores....also there is some perfume to it which I don't appreciate in skin care products...I think Lancome generally make really good perfume, even their shower gel smells sooo awesome, but for skin care and makeup not so much...

I used the entire bottle and didn't notice any improvement in my skin. In fact, it dried it out (which is not surprising given that it contains alcohol).

The smell and the look of the bottle were the only things I liked about this product.

So given the price, I would definitely not buy it again.

Update: Despite seeing initial positive results, this just ended up drying my skin out and not really doing much of anything else. For me, it basically turned out to be a lightly hydrating gel moisturizer. I still think there were short-term benefits but over the weeks it took me to finish the bottle I saw no noticeable long-term effects and my cheeks began to develop small rough dry small patch on each cheek. Needless to say I did not repurchase and don't think I will be trying any other Lancome skincare products (though I do like some of their makeup) as I don't think they provide value for the cost. I don't mind spending more on skincare...but if I do I need to see results, and I didn't see any with Visionnaire. Not a fan of the perfume either, its much too much for a facial product. As with anything, ymmv...but this didn't work for my skin.

I normally am not the type of person who would spend so much money on a single skincare item. I splurge on makeup sometimes but I usually keep my skincare pretty simple, natural and inexpensive. I have combo skin, oily nose and chin and dry cheeks. I get the odd small breakout but my skin isn't acne prone.

After buying a Lancome foundation I received a deluxe sample of Visionnaire, otherwise I never would have even tried it.

Firstly, it is scented, which isn't my favourite thing in a face product. Its a light perfumy scent, but luckily I am not able to smell it once it is dry. It dries and absorbs very quickly and leaves a nice smooth finish which works very well under liquid or powder foundation. I used it instead of a primer.

I also had a sample of Genifique so I used them alternately until I ran out, usually in the morning but sometimes at night too.

I noticed an immediate difference in the way my skin looked. It happened so fast I thought it might be a fluke and my skin just happened to look great that day, but as I continued to use it my skin looked better and better. I ran out and just ordered a full sized bottle of Visionnaire, although the price nearly killed me. I am hoping I get the same results with just the Visionnaire, if not I will probably get the Genifique too, because I know that combination definitely worked for me. I'd love to try the DreamTone serum too but I'm not that wealthy!

Once I am through my bottle of Visionnaire I will update this review, but so far this is the first time I've been so impressed with a skincare product that I've spent this much money on it.

The only serum that's ever made a difference. Went on a hike so was without a lick of makeup and my friend asked what I did bc my skin looked luminous and my pores looked smaller. Bought a bottle as soon as I ran out. Pricey but worth it. I really wish I hadn't wasted my money on the Dr Dennis gross serum which did absolutely nothing despite its stellar reviews

I got a sample of this to try it and won't be buying it. The texture of this cream is not light at all, not refreshing, it is hideous and greasy, so much so that it made me itchy as soon as put it on. Sticky, greasy, awful......I will go on using my Korres products, pure and effective, I will not change my Wild rose 24-hour hydrating and brightening cream for nothing.

I bought this serum one month ago at the Duty Free. It costed me about $80USD for a 30 ML bottle. This is very pricey for me so I apply this only on my scar and my deep lines area.

After 1 month, it did something... well, about 10%-5%... slightly better scar & lines seem to fade a bit but not very noticeable yet. ummm I'd say it gives the same results as products with main active ingredients as Palmitoyl Peptide as the main ingredients but it takes a a bit more time to see the results.

I think I will not buy this again since Vichy (owned by L'oreal) just launched its Ideal serum which also contains 4% LR 2412 and Vichy's LHA acids. But before that I might switch to EsteeLauder's Perfectionists CP+R first to prevent my skin to get 'immuned' to LR2412.

Propably, I will keep alternating between Estee Perfectionists CP+R and Vichy Ideal's LR2412 for many next months to come.

Update: I got a sample of SKII Sign Uplifter and one the 1st night I mix it with Visionaire, the deep/pitted scar improved in 3-7 nights. I don't know what made the pitted (deep one) seem to fade but Visionaire alone (using it after L'oreal Youth Code, which is Genefique's Dupe) does not provide this fast result.

I think L'oreal wants people to use Visionaire and Genefique BOTH morning AND evening but I 've been applying both at only my night time routine.

I also got Perfectionist CP+R now. I use it in the morning and Visionaire at night.
After Perfectionist ran out, I am planning to try Rojukiss Snail Serum and Laneige's Time Freeze Essence.
