Review | Lancôme DreamTone

By  |  0 Comments

“Introducing New DreamTone, 3 barely-tinted serums to visibly correct dark spots, color imperfections and uneven skin tone. DreamTone is the next generation of dark spot correction. So powerful, 72% of women dare to bare their skin.”

Lancôme has clinically observed three different pigmentation profiles, and has developed these DreamTone formulas to correct dark spots, unevenness and pigmentation irregularities in fair, medium and dark skin tones. Each formula targets excess melanin synthesis (which leads to pigmentation irregularities), restores epidermal homeostasis (keeps things working the way they should) and fights against inflammation and stress. Each formula also addresses specific concerns commonly seen with each respective skin tone:

  1. Fair Skin – helps to target vascular dysfunction to reduce redness
  2. Medium Skin – helps to brighten sallow skin tones
  3. Dark Skin – helps to target blemish marks


This powerful skintone correcting serum is said to target imperfections and leave skin looking flawless. Dark spots and blemishes should appear diminished, colour imperfections and redness should be reduced, and the look of sallowness should be replaced by a warm, peachy glow. Overall, skin should look smooth, beautiful, and healthy.

What are my thoughts?

I have been using profile 1 for fair skin, and I have thoroughly enjoyed using this serum!

Texture:  It has a wonderfully silky smooth texture and smells lovely. The serum has a pink tinge to it and is extremely lightweight.  It’s not greasy and hasn’t caused my skin to break out. I am obsessed with how amazing this feels on my skin, and how smooth it makes my skin feel.

Application:  I apply two pumps and it absorbs immediately into my skin, leaving it looking radiant and feeling silky smooth. Because it doesn’t leave a sticky or greasy residue, it can be used under makeup. It also has a plumping effect, and my skin feels nicely hydrated after I use it. I apply it morning and evenings.

Packaging: I love the packaging, a cool pink ombre bottle with a twist pop top.

Overall I am very happy with DreamTone and I can definitely see an improvement in my skin. My skin tine appears more even, and my pigmentation has reduced slightly. I really enjoy using this product on my face mornings and evenings, and I look forward to it! I also LOVE the fact that it is paraben-, sulfate- and phthalate-free!
