My #bareselfie Moment with Lancôme DreamTone

I am one of those people who, unfortunately, STILL suffers from acne. I have been fighting this battle since I was a teenager, and I have the marks, scars and pimples to prove it. Not something I am proud of, but hey, what am I going to do? I have to say that the only time that I have been able to enjoy clear skin (aside from my pre-teen years) was when I was pregnant. Unfortunately (or is it fortunately?), I can't remain pregnant all of the time because I can't afford it! That being said, you can imagine my excitement when I received an e-mail from SheSpeaks that I would be receiving a complimentary bottle of Lancôme DreamTone to try out in return for my review. A $98 bottle of clinically proven results? Thank you sir, may I have another?!?!

So pretty!
Here is some information on the product itself:

DreamTone is the next generation in dark spot correction. This customized skin tone correcting serum is so powerful, 72% of women dare to bare their skin.* The new DreamTone is 3 barely-tinted serums formulated to visibly correct dark spots, color imperfections and give you a more even-looking skin tone. It comes in 3 serums customized for your skin tone: 1- Fair, 2 – Medium, 3 – Dark.

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.

Here is my #bareselfie from before beginning to use this product (please be kind, there is nothing I wanted to do any less then post this picture on the internet for the world to see):

This product is slightly tinted, has a bit of shimmer to it, and smells divine! It smells a bit like roses to me, and that is one of my favorite scents of all time. This fact alone made me fall in-love with this stuff. Plus, anything that claims it will help out my poor skin, and is backed with clinical results is a little more believable in my opinion. The serum is to be used twice per day underneath your moisturizer. I have a pretty intensive skincare regime due to the acne-related issues, so I altered my routine to look like this: Remove eye make-up (at night), wash face, apply toner (I use witch hazel), apply 2 pumps (about the size of a pea) of Lancôme DreamTone, apply moisturizer. I found that it was simple to incorporate into my daily and nightly routine. The scent has a nice uplifting effect too! 

After 4 weeks of using Lancôme DreamTone, here is yet another #bareselfie:

I definitely feel as though the Lancôme DreamTone has done a decent job of lightening up some of my long-lived acne marks and scars. The only wishes I have would be for it to target some of the current acne and be a bit more affordable (a girl can dream right?). I plan to continue to use this serum as part of my daily skincare regime until the bottle runs out. If I purchase in the future it will have to be through a promotion or as a gift from someone, as I personally cannot afford to spend $98 on a single product. For women (or men) looking for proven results, who have the money to drop, I absolutely recommend and encourage them to try out the Lancôme DreamTone.

I give Lancôme DreamTone a 9 out of 10 stars:

If you are looking for a brighter skin tone and mark/scar/dark spot reducer, I highly recommend going here (or your local department store retailer) to learn more and grab yourself a bottle of Lancôme DreamTone.
