Lancome Dreamtone | Review & First Look

This powerful skintone correcting serum targets imperfections and leaves skin looking flawless. Dark spots and blemishes will appear diminished, color imperfections and redness will be reduced, and the look of sallowness will be replaced by a warm, peachy glow. Overall, skin will look smooth, beautiful, and healthy.

LANCOME DREAMTONE Customized Skin Tone Correcting SerumPRODUCT RATING: ★★★★★★★★☆ (8/10) PRE-REVIEW

PRICE DETAILS: $98 for 1.3oz. $$$

PRESENTATION: Hard plastic bottle with twist up pump.

TEXTURE & SCENT: Light, creamy serum with slight silicone texture – light fragrance.

COLOR OPTIONS: 3. Fair, Medium and Dark

KEY FEATURES: Comes in 3 formulations that addresses the specific needs based on skin tone. Fair: Dark spots, uneven skin tone, redness, Medium: Dark uneven skin tone, sallowness, Dark: Dark spots, uneven skin tone, acne & blemish marks.

QUICK REVIEW: I’ve never really been impressed with Lancome skin care (except for Bi-Facils) but their newest crop of products have recaptured my attention. Dreamtone Customized Skin Tone Correcting Serum utilizes Hydroxyphenoxy Propionic Acid (also found in Algenist Concentrated Reconstructing Serum) to remove surface pigmentation and inhibits melanin transfer – which may lead to the appearance of more luminous, even toned skin if used consistently for 8 weeks. The serum is lightweight and immediately gives skin a lovely glow.

Will I be dropping $98? Since dark spots and pigmentation issues are the core of my complexion concerns, I already use a good Vitamin C product and the Algenist serum which uses the same Hydroxyphenoxy Propionic Acid that Dreamtone does. However, my interest and curiosity are piqued, the immediate brightening during my “hand test” was impressive and this would make a nice AM treatment option under makeup. Hopefully I’ll be able to find a sample to test, but I’ll have to put this on my wish list for now and see what the consumer reviews begin to report.
