I received my the Lancome DreamTone Skin Care product in early November, but unfortunately the pump for the bottle did not work. So I was unable to use the product until a replacement is sent. (Review delayed)
Prior to use: My skin has come a long way. From discolorations to huge pores and what I call the Homer Simpson mouth. I still have some of the same issues, but they are not as noticeable as they once were thanks to the products I have been able to try. Since the products I reviewed in the past are finished, I'm currently using a drug store pore minimizer which is working very well. The dark spots I am hoping to rid myself of with DreamTone includes the darker circles around my eyes (racoon eyes), nose bridge, cheeks and my neck especially. I cannot wait to try DreamTone!

It's November 26th and my replacement bottle has arrived. As soon as I opened the bottle I could smell the fragrance, it smelled great, but a little too much fragrance for a face product in my opinion. I was a little nervous about using this on my because my skin is really sensitive, but I signed up to try it...so here we go!
Afternoon one: This dark spot corrector is to be worn under your moisturizer. After washing my face, I applied the serum. It itched a bit, so it will take some getting used to. I then put my moisturizer on. A few minutes later I noticed bumps on my forehead, on my chin and cheeks. Obviously, this was a big concern for me. I want my skin to get better, not worse. I will try one full day more to see if the bumps continue, if it does, I will end this review immediately afterward!
Night one: Later in the day the bumps I originally saw after using the serum went away. Night one wasn't bad at all. I washed my face with my usual pore minimizing face scrub, then I applied the DreamTone serum. I did not put on a moisturizer afterward because I usually don't at night since my moisturizer has sun block in it (what's the point?).
Day two (November 27th):It's morning and I didn't notice any miracle, lol. My face looks just as it did before I started, no more bumps from the initial try so I will let a few days pass to see if there are any noticeable changes!
Day seven (December 2): I have been using the serum for a few days now and I must say that my skin has grown accustomed to the fragrance. It's become a part of my regular routine. In regards to changes in my skin, I noticed a slight difference to the area around my mouth. Nothing significant yet, but it's still early so I will update this post after I've used it for 4 weeks.
Meanwhile, want to try it for yourself? It may be purchased at www.lancome-usa.com: A 1.3 oz bottle is $98
After a month of use (December 26, 2013): It has been approximately 30 days since I first tried Lancome DreamTone and although there has not been a drastic change, I do notice a difference. The weird thing about this change is it has nothing to do with my skin. The change we've noticed has to do with my eyebrows. For some reason, since using the DreamTone, my eyebrows have thickened, which is a happy surprise for me being that I've had very thin eyebrows since I was a pre teen... which is why I began "painting" on eyebrows when I was in high school.
