Lancome Skin Care Solutions from the Visionnaire line is now officially part of my daily skin care regime. This is my very first time using skin care products from this beauty brand. However, I have seen great reviews about their products before but did not get around to trying them until now. Usually I use their fragrances namely the La Vie est Belle which is one of my favourites. Someone also told me that I need to try their foundation as it is one of the best on the market. That is another product I am yet to try but it is on my wish-list. So recently they came out with this new line of “skin savvy expert solutions” and I am happy to put it to the test. So lets get into each product and what is expected from them.
Correcting Concentrate – 15% Vitamin C
Aids with dullness, uneven skin-tone (a major concern for me) and a loss of elasticity. If you experience any of these issues I assure you, you will begin to see results almost immediately. But don’t take my word for it, just try it yourself. This formula is a brighteningserum that transforms the look of your skin. Evens off your complexion, leaving it looking more radiant and fresh. It retails for $65 and comes in a 10 ml bottle (not too bad if you ask me). A little bit goes a long way, literally since you only need 4-5 drops for each application. You start seeing results within a week as my face appeared more refreshed and awaken if that makes sense. Bye-bye to my once obvious two-toned complexion.
Loose Setting & Mattifying Powder (Deep)
Invisible loose setting powder is for setting your makeup to give a matte, flawless look. No need to worry about shine and excess oils after applying this to your face. Goes on light weight, blurs imperfections and improves foundation wear. Setting your makeup is equally important as applying primer and this one does a great job at that.
Correcting Night Concentrate – 0.2% Retinol
Strictly for night time use only, the 0.2% retinol is for targeting deep wrinkles (what we are scared of), fine lines and uneven texture. After applying the 15% vitamin c serum, I let it sit for a while before applying some of this. You can use any other night cream or moisturizer if you wish.
Fix It Forget It Setting Mist
Last but not least, the fix it forget it setting mist to top off your makeup look. Promises to keep your face intact for up to 24 hours and suitable for all skin types. Infused with plant extracts and doesn’t contain any damaging ingredient such as parabens and silicone. Also, it is oil-free, non-sticky and fragrance free. There are a number of other benefits of using this product such as:
Makeup stays true to colour and complexion
Doesn’t settle into fine lines, wrinkles or pores
Deflects and protects the skin
Infused with kiwi, moringa seed and witch hazel extracts
Contains hyaluronic acid
You can also use it as a refresher to wake up your makeup.
Taking care of your skin is time-consuming but its important to maintain a daily routine. Lets face it, we are all scared of the imperfections that may come with age. So now is a good time to start taking care of our skin before its too late. PS: From the photographs you can tell that I am in my robe in my bathroom because this is a real life situation. Sorry not sorry about the messy counter top, uncombed hair and the bathroom backdrop but this is as real as it gets. Frankly this is where all the action goes down with my hair and face on a daily basis.
