I was recently sent a product to try. And if you know me very well, you are aware that I have minimal appreciation for products that are not sold by dermatologists or specialised skin therapists #hides
So my biggest skin issue has always been my enlarged pores, which are on the top part of my checks and nose (they almost look like freckles) as well a bit of pigmentation on my upper lip (due to "the pill").
The product I received was Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector, at first glance my thoughts were "this is awesome" a product that promises to re-texturise the look of skin, refine and correct the appearance of wrinkles, pores and uneven skin. Exactly what I needed and am always willing to put products to the test especially if they could potentially fix my issues.
The packaging was beautiful, and the serum was enclosed in an opaque coloured pump bottle which ensures that the efficacy and integrity of the formula is preserved. The only thing I would change about the bottle is that fact that you can't gauge how much product you have left as you use it, so maybe a very thin see through strip on the side some where would do well for that.
As always, I also read the back label for ingredients as I like to be well informed on what exactly I am applying to my skin. The first 3 ingredients were water, cyclohexasiloxane and glycerine. I was to happy with that, as it meant hydration, hydration and more hydration. I'm all about that!
On application the product glides on smoothly and was easily absorbed into the skin. It did not leave any residue whatsoever. I was determined to get the full effects of the product so I decided my routine would be cleanse & tone in one, apply the Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector and an SPF30. (I wouldn't recommend this as a permanent regime, but I was not willing to take the chance with breakouts or any adverse effects occurring from mixing and matching of products - I prefer to use a product line in its entirety). Back to the serum... The scent was very light and flowery, not over powering at all.
I must say I have pleasantly surprised, one week of usage and I see a huge change, particularly to the size of my pores and skin texture. I would ordinarily give a quick glance to my cheek and nose area when getting ready each morning, but I have been taking more time to scrutinise just to make sure it's not my imagination! With regards texture there is just no second guessing, I'm being told more and more how beautiful and flawless my skin is looking! I'm excited to see after one month of constant use, day and night, just how much more improved my skin will look.
Would I recommend this product? You will know after a month :) lets give it time to come full circle.
