So today is the day I let you in on a little anti-ageing secret. Here’s the miracle duo that I turn to when my skin needs regenerating, refining and aluminizing. The fabulous Visionnaire and Génifique combo!
I’ve been quite the devoted user of Visionnaire and Lancôme skincare for the last 2-3 years. All thanks to Alex who put me on to this fabulous serum that he swore by. Back then I used it mostly to treat my annoying acne and allergy scars.
Visionnaire according to Lancôme,
‘The innovation of Visionnaire is the first skincare with LR2412, a molecule designed to penetrate throughout all the layers of the skin’s epidermis, triggering a range of micro transformations. With Visionnaire skin perfector treatment, wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores minimized and imperfections such as uneven skin tone are corrected for a perfectly even complexion’.
Visionnaire comes in a blue plastic pump bottle, a hygienic and easy to use form of packaging. The pump dispenses a very little product at a time, so there is no wastage. Only drawback was though I always am caught by surprise when my bottle runs out as there is no indication of how much product has been used up unless you hold it up to direct light (which I don’t do on a regular basis!).
Visionnaire is a milky white solution with a slight pink pearlescent look . I don’t detect any fragrance in this, which is something I like.
Normally I go for two pumps. And this is enough for my whole face. It absorbs fast and I am prepped to go onto my moisturizer next.
So let’s get down to the good stuff!
Throughout the course of the years I used Visionnaire, the most noticeable benefit was that it refines skin and treats pigmentation. Any unevenness in skin tone is basically sorted.
I also use this as a treatment for sensitized skin, whenever my face get’s itchy duo to acne or allergies I apply a thick layer on the affected area and go to bed. My skin feels calm by morning and most often than not, breakouts are pretty much controlled.
Recently (3-4 months ago) I was sent the new Génifique- Advanced Génifique. And was suggested to use this as a pre serum before my Visionnaire.
According to Lancôme Génifique is said to give you,
‘Visibly younger skin in just 7 days. Skin looks as if lit from within – breathtaking radiant. Its youthful quality returns: cushiony soft and velvety to the touch. Drop by drop, skin is vibrant with youth, its tone becomes astonishingly even, its texture dramatically refined’
Génifique come’s in a very clinical looking glass bottle with a dropper dispenser.
The twist up cap ‘sucks’ up just the right amount of product needed for one application and dispenses it with a click of the button. And I love that the very bottom of the bottle is transparent, so you know just when you are about to run out! genius design!
Génifique is a runny transparent liquid. Not as runny as water but a slightly thinner solution than Visionnaire. One pump of the dropper allows the right amount for one application and I spread it all over my face. It does take slightly longer to absorb than the Visionnaire and leaves skin feeling moist and supple.
I then follow it with Visionnaire.
After years of using Visionnaire by itself I was astonished at how amazing the results of the duo were.
Génifique took anti ageing to a whole new level. Within a couple weeks I noticed one of the three wrinkles on my forehead had faded. No longer was it deep! I also noticed my skin more supple, moist and looking healthier. The regenerative powers of Génifique were clear.
It’s evident that Génifique has a ‘booster’ effect on Visionnaire and I love using these two on a daily basis.
Together they work well to keep my skin young and radiant.
