08 Oct Review, Before/After Photos: Lancôme DreamTone Customized Skin Tone Correcting Serum: Fair, Medium & Dark Shades: Treats Redness, Dark Spots, Sallowness
Find out what are the best lightening products to get rid of post-acne marks, dark spots —> HERE!
Lancôme calls DreamTone, “the next generation of dark spot correction” and claims that:
• 74% of women tested saw glowing skin immediately
• In 7 days, 70% noticed a more even skintone
• In 4 weeks, 69% saw the appearance of dark spots reduced
• In 8 weeks, 78% saw color imperfections reduced
We tested all 3 serums for Fair, Medium and Dark skintones. Read on to learn more about how it works and see some impressive Before/After photos!
Each formula targets different types of discoloration and imperfections that show up more prominently on certain skintones: Fair skin shows more redness along with dark spots; Medium skin shows visible sallowness; Dark skin shows acne marks and blemishes. More specifically, the break down of these color-correcting ingredients are as follows:
• Hydroxy-Phenoxy Propionic Acid — A hydroquinone derivative that provides a multifaceted approach to evening skintone and reducing the appearance of dark spots
• Lyphohydroxy acid (LHA) – A hydroxy acid that helps brighten the appearance of skin over time
• Dermochlorella (Chlorella Vulgaris Extract) — An ingredient extracted from green micro-algae
• Eterniskin (Girfola Frondosa Fruting Body Extract) – A derivative of Japan’s maitake mushroom that is believed to have antioxidant properties
Soft-focus tinted pearls were carefully selected for each formula, so each skintone could enjoy the light scattering technology. Lancôme claims it has clinically observed three different pigmentation profiles, and developed these DreamTone formulas to correct the problems with each.

Each formula targets excess melanin synthesis (which leads to pigmentation irregularities), restores epidermal homeostasis (keeps things working right) and combats redness and stress.
Each tester used this product daily for about 10 days.
“The formula has a pearly, reflective texture that brightens and illuminates skin immediately for a healthy, radiant look. The pink and copper pigments aid in improving the skintone.
It absorbs well and is a fine base for the rest of your makeup. I did not find I could go without foundation, but since it was so light and easily absorbed, I could apply my regular sun protection as well as foundation, blush and powder without looking cakey or overdone.
After 10 days, I did notice a slight improvement in skintone, but even a slight change packs a lot of punch. I plan to keep using this and hope for even more dramatic results in the future.” – Yona McDonough
“My skin was clearly blotchy with dark spots, and my freckles were noticeably darker. I had breakouts on my forehead, too! Not pretty at all!
After using Lancome for 10 days, my skin is smooth, flawless and I don’t even need any makeup/concealer.” – Evelyn Lugo
Theresa used Dreamtone 1 for Fair skin
“This serum has more of a creamy feel to it. Not to mention its fragrant rose aroma, which did not irritate my sensitive skin at all! My acne marks leave some unsightly redness, but this correcting serum seemed to make everything look even and smooth.
I applied morning and night (but will now only apply it once at night to conserve its supply). It doesn’t feel heavy on skin at all, and I never experienced any breakouts.
After applying it once, I immediately saw a more glowing complexion, making me want to dare and bare my skin without makeup!” – Theresa Romano
