As we age, all those “skincare sins” we committed in our youth appear on our faces. Too much sun, not washing our skin as often as we should, not exfoliating like we should, and in general not taking care of our skin like we should. A whole host of skin issues begin to show in the form of dark spots, uneven skin tone and color imperfections to name a few. Lancome DreamTone is a new customized skin tone correcting serum that covers these concerns.
After a gloval study on women of multiple ethnicities, it resulted in this new skin tone clarifying serum which comes in three formulas that are adapted to specific skin tones:
- Fair (1) – Corrects the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone, dullness and provides specific color correction for the look of redness
- Medium (2) – Corrects the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone, dullness and provides specific color correction for the look of sallowness – commonly found in olive skin tones.
- Dark (3) – Corrects the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone, dullness and provides specific color correction for the look of acne & blemish marks.
DreamTone in Medium (2) was sent to me for testing and I’ve been using it for nearly a week now. What I noticed immediately that is different than any serum I’ve tried is that it did give me radiant skin right away. That’s because the serum has soft-focus tinted pearls that were selected for each formula to give that particular skin a radiance that goes with the skin tone match. That correlates with Lancome’s results that showed 74% saw glowing skin immediately, during an 8-week study that was done on women of multiple ethnicities.
According to Lancome there are four star ingredients in DreamTone –
- Hydroxy-Phenoxy Propionic Acid – a hydroquinone derivative that provides a multifaceted approach to evening skin tone and reducing the appearance of dark spots.
- Lyphohydroxy acid (LHA) – a hydroxy acid that helps brighten the appearance of skin over time.
- Dermochlorella – An ingredient extracted from green micro-algae.
- Eternskin – A derivative of Japan’s Maitake mushroom that is believed to have antioxidant properties.
While I don’t personally have a lot of dark spots, I do have uneven skin tone and I feel, dullness as well. I’ll share my continued results with you in the future. Lancome DreamTone is available at counters now for $98 for 1.3 oz.
