Lancome Mini Haul & Gift with Purchase

**purchased / g.w.p.

I really wanted to do a nail post today, but looking through the files...I did not like any of them.  Poor lighting, poor camera quality, not as focused as they should be... You name a reason for not liking the picture, I felt it.  So instead, I'm finally sharing what I got when I purchased during the last gift with purchase at the Lancome counter at Dillards (it happened quite a while ago in April).

They had a beauty event in order to get pre-sales.  Well, I attended the event and rather than pre-sale, I took home a sample bottle of the DreamTone in number 1 and ended up really liking it.  While I didn't end up purchasing much - only 1 actual item - it was plenty pricey.  But since I didn't pre-sale and didn't get in to the store right when the gift officially started, I missed out on the choice of makeup item.  Darn.
 DreamTone number 1.  I'll have to do a review on it.
 Gift items:
sample tubes of Cils Booster XL and Definicils mascaras
2 sample bottles of DreamTone number 1 (she gave me an extra)
1.7 fl. oz. bottle of Bi-Facil eye makeup remover
0.5 oz jar of High Resolution Night Refill-3X night cream
lipstick in Sugared Maple (sheer) - this one is going in my backup drawer since I already have a tube from a previous gift

~2 swipes of Sugared Maple~

The eye makeup remover isn't my favorite - darn scent - but I am working my way through the ones in my stash.  The mini DreamTones will be perfect for if/when we travel again.  I do really like the Definicils mascara, but haven't tried the Cils Booster XL primer.  I also haven't tried the night cream, but I do have another sample jar of it in my stash - if/when I go to use it, I'll have plenty to get a good feel for if I like it or not.

I've got a couple of eyeshadows on my Lancome to-buy list.  And eventually I'll need refills of the Advanced Genefique and DreamTone.  Their cleansing water also caught my eye to use in the mornings.  They do have a SPF lotion for the face, but it's not a moisturizing formula and I would prefer to have some moisture built in even though I have combo skin.

Have you tried Lancome's DreamTone?  Do you have a favorite, effective treatment for lightening old/left-over acne marks?  Do you like anything else from Lancome?
