So my darlings I promised you that I would fill you in on any relevant birthday gifts that I received and thought that given it's two weeks since I better get on with it!

So first in the series is the Lancome Visionnaire skin care.

I'll be honest, I hadn't actually heard of this one, but I thought that it was very fitting that I should receive the same on my 26th birthday as it aims to reduce signs of ageing, wrinkles and ages spots.  Ah, ageing.  That horrendous thing we all seek to avoid.

I should mention that this is the sample sized version - I got a lot of lancome gifts (I know I am so lucky and even luckier that my amazing Dad chose them all) and this came with.

It was one of the first things that I tried though because I love their skin care generally but only get to use it after my birthday or xmas because I don't tend to  purchase it for myself these days. 

Anyway, I digress. So, what does it do?

Apparently this... Visionnaire is the 1st skincare with LR 2412, a molecule designed to penetrate throughout all the layers of the skin`s epidermis, triggering a range of micro transformations. With Visionnaire, wrinkles appear visibly reduced, pores look minimised and imperfections such as uneven skin tone appear more even, as if corrected.

Literally, I have no idea what LR 2412 is. I hope that doesn't make me a totally ignorant beauty blogger, but I'll be honest - I don't get much chance to research into these things these days!  What I am interested in though is the effects it is supposed to produce.
And it works. 
I know this because I only started searching for all the jazz about what it is supposed to do after I noticed what an amazing effect it had had on my skin.  In particular I am talking pores.  Reduced pores on the cheeks and nose - which is something I can never normally achieve.
I am a very happy bunny.
The product is a pearly iridescent super lightweight cream.  It doesn't really seem to leave a sheen on the skin though. 
I did find out that I had been using it wrong though - whoops!  It is meant to be for evening use but I was using it alone under my makeup!! To be quite honest, I won't be stopping that.  I know it isn't what they intended but it works wonders for my skin and makeup application so I'm keeping it up!
I would definitely recommend this although it is somewhat pricey I must say at £58!! I would say try and pick up a sample with your next Lancome purchase and go from there!


  1. i'd love to try lancome products! i am all for bargains, but when it comes to skin care, i think the expensive ones are totally worth it. :)
