Lancome’s NEW DreamTone REALLY works!

lancome-dreamtone-2

I have been using Lancome’s wonderful, new DreamTone for a little over a month now. I have been using it on my hands, and on my face. I have noticed a visible difference in my skin tone! Look at the photo below! The dark spots are CLEARLY fading. I tried to get the lighting to be the same on both days … but this is as close as I could get. The dark spots on my hands from years of tanning are clearly less visible. How do you argue with results like that?

PS: Notice my hot new phone case in the reflection? I’m a fan.

Anyway! Lancome DreamTone Ultimate Dark Spot Corrector is a light tinted cream that targets whatever your skin concerns are. If you have uneven skin like moi – this is the product for you. It makes your skin look even, and corrects dark spots in the meantime! I have always had a red chin (wth) and some discoloration from tanning, and well…. just getting older. This product really, REALLY makes a difference.

DreamTone comes out in a beige color, and blends into your skin, evenly. It makes your skin feel amazing! Beautiful, soft, and smelling like a flower.

I’ve been using this product in place of foundation, because I’ve found I don’t need both! It is a WONDERFUL new product from Lancome, and I think you should all run out and get it immediately!

Aveeno Ambassador Review: Positively Radiant Collection lives up to its name!

aveeno-march-2014-2

As part of the Aveeno Ambassador program, we get to try out some pretty fabulous products! Today I’m reviewing two wonderful products from the Positively Radiant Collection.

I used the Makeup Removing Wipes, and they work great! They soothe the skin, rather than irritate it! A little bit of cleansing swipes, and your makeup comes right off! (MSRP $6.99)

Below, is their Targeted Tone Corrector. This targeted treatment helps reduce the look of stubborn dark spots, discolorations, and uneven tone to improve skin’s radiance in just 2 weeks. This concentrated formula combines clinically proven ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex, one of nature’s most effective tone correctors, with vitamin A for faster results. It is oil free, noncomedogenic and nonirritating. (MSRP $16.59)

AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® COLLECTION OVERVIEW:
The AVEENO® Brand, known for harnessing the power of ACTIVE NATURALS® ingredients, presents the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Collection. This line of facial care products is formulated to help even out tone and texture and transform dull, tired-looking skin into brighter, more radiant skin.

FEATURING ACTIVE NATURALS® TOTAL SOY COMPLEX:

The benefits of soy were discovered when workers who handled soy in Asia’s soybean factories found that their hands were especially smooth and even toned. The AVEENO® Brand scientists devised a way to process soybeans that retain the integrity of the proteins to provide immediate and long-term skin benefits. This collection features ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex, that helps to visibly transform the 5 FACTORS OF RADIANCE® including: tone, texture, dullness, blotchiness and brown spots.
