Your Lancôme must-haves:
To get the best results, it pays to use the best products. See your skincare as an investment and you’ll be thankful down the track. Even as little as a month down the track – if you’re using Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector, that is!
The product that we all know and love has recently been made over (yes, after receiving almost 100 international awards and winning over scientists and beauty experts alike, Lancôme decided it could go one step further) and the amazing results must be seen to be believed.
But first let’s backtrack to 2001, when Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%] Advanced Skin Corrector was quite the ground-breaker. The first serum capable of recreating exceptionally beautiful skin, the secret lay with its unique LR 2412 molecule. Created in an eco-friendly way by Lancôme’s team of researchers, this ingredient has a high affinity with the skin and allows it to permeate evenly into the epidermis.
Now, the formula has been further developed for even more effectiveness. Ever the perfectionists, the French cosmetics house doubled the biological strategy of LR 2412, to create LR 2412-Cx. This is a unique combination of two molecules that allows optimum balance and distribution of Visionnaire. In layman’s terms – twice the effectiveness!
With Visionnaire, you’ll notice:
– Lightweight oils, to nourish the skin without shine
– Optical agents, to leave a powdery soft finish
– Enhanced blurring, to further erase uneven skintone
– Fine pearly particles, to give an illuminating effect
