My first invite was to participate in a campaign for the Cover Girl and Olay Simply Ageless products. I’ve used Cover Girl since I started wearing make-up as a teenager. I tried several different brands back then, and Cover Girl was and still is my favorite as far as price, coverage, shades, etc. So when I seen the review offer was for Cover Girl/Oil of Olay Tone Rehab 2 in 1 Foundation and Pressed Powder, I jumped at the chance.
CoverGirl & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation:
Pros: I usually only wear foundation during the Fall and Winter, because I just sweat it off in the warmer months, so I use a tinted moisturizer during the Summer. I received the kit at the perfect time now that Fall is finally in the air. My verdict, this stuff rocked! It goes on so smoothly, not thick and cakey at all and a little goes a long way. A big plus in my opinion, since it means it will last longer. It made my skin feel velvety soft and evened out my skin tone, which has been a big problem since I hit my 40′s, hello age spots! Also I have sensitive skin, and I haven’t experienced any break-outs so far while using it. It’s not expensive either, it was only $ 12.98 at my local Walmart, which is a really great price for a product that is up there in quality with a lot of the high-dollar foundations in my opinion.
Cons: None that I can see! The foundation had excellent coverage and lasted most of the day. I also loved the smell. Not perfume-y, just light and pleasant.
Covergirl & Olay Pressed Powder:
Truthfully, I never wear pressed powder. It always seemed like an extra step that wasn’t really needed in my busy life. I was willing to give it a shot though.
Pros: The case it comes in is really pretty and sturdy. I tried the foundation alone and with the powder both, and it seemed to help lock in the foundation and make it last longer. Like the foundation, the powder goes on smoothly and is extremely light feeling. It made my face feel soft and smooth. I love the fact that the powder has a very soft sheen to it. It really made my face brighten up.
Cons: The price for the powder at my local Walmart was $10.47, which I thought was a little high. With sales and coupons though, it can be affordable. I didn’t care for the applicator pad very much either. It seemed to get yucked up after about a week of use. Maybe something to do with the added smooth-glide serum? I was able to wash the pad though, and after drying it was good to go again.
I love, love, love this stuff, and will definitely continue buying and using them.
I also received 20 coupons for $2 off for me to share with my friends and family! How cool is that? I still have several left, and would be glad to mail you one if you’d like to try these awesome products out yourself.
