Although I am in my early thirties, my skin is something I take care of religiously. I am not a heavy makeup wearer, but I understand how makeup can make a huge difference in covering up discoloration, fine lines & wrinkles. Right now, I am not so concerned about fine lines & wrinkles just yet, but skin discoloration is very important to me. I have olive skin (I’m Latina) so discoloration can make finding a perfect foundation match a little trickier. I recently had the opportunity to give COVERGIRL & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation a try. COVERGIRL & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation claims to reduce the appearance on discolorations over time by hydrating the skin. At the suggested retail price of $12.99, I figured COVERGIRL & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation is affordable enough for continuous use if it’s something that agreed with m skin.
The liquid foundation (Buff Beige 125) goes on smooth and is lightweight. I did noticed that it brighten parts of my face to give the even skin tone appearance, which is exactly what I was looking for. The foundation contains a serum that does hydrate. Will it repair the look of discolorations? I’m not sure. I used it for almost 2 weeks and did not notice a difference in my skin tone without makeup on. But I did notice that the foundation manage to stay on my face despite the hot temperatures of Southeast Louisiana. One thing I also noticed is the foundation had a grainy feel to it. I normally use a mineral foundation so it’s quite possible that this is normal feeling that I am not familiar with anymore due to continuous mineral foundation wearing.
I’m not a fan of pressed powder. I can honestly say that I haven’t even used a pressed powder in at least 15 years (if not more). But I was able to use the COVERGIRL & Olay Pressed Powder (320 Fair light) as an additional source to help cover any imperfections or discolorations that the foundation did not cover. I also used the pressed powder to give slight coverage if I was just running out of the house for a minute or so. I was actually surprised by the pressed powder. Again, although I’m not a regular user of pressed powder, it did a decent job of maintaining a complete finished look to my makeup.
The COVERGIRL & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation shade palette is available in 14 beautiful shades & the COVERGIRL & Olay Pressed Powder is available in 6 complimentary shades. I’m a big fan of Ellen DeGeneres so her being in COVERGIRL & Olay advertisements is an additional plus! I also like that the price point for CoverGirl Cosmetics is within the everyday woman price budget. We can’t always buy expensive department store products, so this is a nice incentive to purchasing COVERGIRL & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation & Pressed Powder.
