Too many hours in the sun as a teen: My product review of Lancome DreamTone

This post sponsored in part by Lancome and SheSpeaks for the complimentary Lancôme DreamTone face cream, given to me to try and review. All opinions are honest and are mine.

Although I don't wear heavy makeup and don't go for a dramatic effect, I do wear daily makeup to enhance as well as cover my uneven skin tone gained from too many hours spent in the sun during the 1980's with only a bottle of baby oil between me and that golden ball in the sky that would give me 'really dark tan'.    It was because of my skin tone flaws I jumped at the chance to try a product called Lancôme DreamTone.  A serum specially formulated to reduce the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone and color imperfections. It comes in 3 lightly-tinted serums formulated to visibly correct dark spots, color imperfections and give  a more even-looking skin tone.  1- Fair, 2 – Medium, 3 – Dark. 

From their own product information and testing the results were promising;

The results:

• 74% saw glowing skin*

• 70% noticed a more even skin tone*

• 69% saw the appearance of dark spots reduced*

• 78% saw color imperfections reduced* 

*All results based on global self-assessments of women of multiple ethnicities in an 8-week study. 72% reflects 8 weeks of use.

After using the product for a month, I would love to say I am one of the 69% of people who have seen glowing skin and radiant results after 4 weeks.  But... I haven't.

The directions state:  For best results, apply the product twice per day, in the morning and evening under your moisturizer.

After a month of using the product, you can see my cheeks still have splotches of uneven tone and I have dark sun freckles by my eye.

The product is packaged beautifully, lightly scented and easy to use with my daily moisturizer so I'm going to to continue to use the product as directed for another month or until it runs out.  72% of the respondents reported favorable results with 8 weeks of use.  Because I enjoy the product, I'm happy to continue use and hopefully will see an improvement over the next couple weeks.

If you are interested in giving Lancôme DreamTone a try, it retails for $98 for a 1.3 fluid ounce bottle and is available for purchase at Lancôme.com and department stores nationwide.
