Review: Lancome Visionnaire

Just yesterday, I posted up my Rescu Road Test Team Audition video. In that video, I was asked to talk about the product that I cannot live without. While there are many products that I love and would repurchase to no end, I had to single one out. Trust me, it was not easy. I picked Lancome's Visionnaire because it is a product that works for me, and it is unique in its functions and performance.

For example, I love my Holy Grail Benefit Hoola Bronzer and would repurchase it to no end. It is pretty much the only bronzer that I stay faithful to. However, I think I can live without it (hopefully that day wouldn't come) since there are other bronzers that I would use (if I have to) as well. On the other hand, Lancome's Visionnaire is the only pore-reducing and redness reducing product that works for my skin. And without any other alternatives or substitutes for it, I picked Lancome Visionnaire as the product that I cannot live without.

What made things harder was the time limit. Each video had to be a maximum of 2 minutes. Gosh, niceties and an introduction alone could take up at least 20-30 seconds! However, as the saying goes: What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. I pulled through and here is my product review video on Lancome Visionnaire.

In fact, this video has inspired me so much that I reckon that Vlog product reviews may be it! While I will try to stick to the 2 minute mark, it may go slightly over or under 2 minutes. It will be a short and capsulated product review video that will cut out the unnecessary blabber.

What do you think of it? Do you want to watch videos like that?
