cream will not clog pores and it will last all day

Benefits and Uses: This cream will not clog pores and it will last all day. It is an oil-free bb cream and it is specifically designed for sensitive skin. You know you can depend on Covergirl to come out with a reliable beauty product. They have been in the business for years.

Feedback: This customer has very pale acne-prone skin and she uses the ivory color of this product to get the perfect matte tone on her face. She puts it on then follows it with moisturizer and a light foundation. This combination has worked for her and it leaves her skin looking healthy after every application. She says her nose and forehead are a little more oily. She just applies a little more of the product to those areas and she is good to go. It has caused no new breakouts for her and it has not affected her current acne which she says that other makeups have affected. She likes the product a lot. It has helped her skin a lot.   

This customer was not too thrilled with this product she said it was ok but not great. It did not cover her skin fully and the consistency was kind of pasty. She says if you have dry skin and dry

patches, this product will stick to the dry patches. She says you could use this in a blender and then apply it. The only problem is the coverage will be lessened. She did not like the consistency at all. It did not last as long as her other two foundations do. She does not like the product does not work for her.

Another customer aid it looks great on her skin and kept the matte finish on her skin perfectly. It did not oxidize on her skin and it did not break up in the oily parts of her skin. She likes the product. Another happy client said this was her new go-to foundation but she did not elaborate on why she loves the product so much. One client said this is the foundation she has been looking for. Sounds like she will be using the product for a long time.

By her own admission, this customer is hard to please but she really likes this product. She had been using another product for more than ten years but then they discontinued it. She was not a happy camper. On the spur of the moment, she did a google search and found this product. She tried it and was amazed at how good it worked. She has very fair skin and the product works great for her skin. It goes on lightly and not too heavy and it absorbs well into her skin. She uses a gel blush product on top and the two blend very well together. She also uses this product as a cream base under a cream eyeshadow and it works very well. The tube is clean and it dispenses the product accurately without a mess. She likes the fact that it is a lot cheaper than the product she used. And she was upset they discontinued it. She is not upset anymore!

multi-functional cream with all these built-in functions

Benefits and Use: The company says there are eight benefits in one cream. This is a very multi-functional cream with all these built-in functions. In one application it will take care of all your skin imperfections they claim. It moisturizes the skin and makes it shine. It has hyaluronic acid and vitamin C which will deeply moisturize the skin. It is a sunscreen with an SPF rating of 15 to protect the skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays that can damage the skin. This may be true but the rating is not very high for protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

The pomegranate extract controls sebum oil production reducing the chances of acne flare-ups. It also shrinks the size of pores. It minimizes fine lines and wrinkles and the mineral elements in the product balance out your skin tone. It is cruelty-free, paraben free and it is free of phthalates.

Feedback: She bought this product to cover scars she had left over from shingles on her legs. The dark color blends well with her skin tone. If you want to you can lighten the color to fit lighter skin tones. She uses a mid-dark for summer but for winter you just lighten the color if you so choose to. She dries it with a hair dryer so it will not leave any product on chairs, furniture, etc. She uses a large brush to set it so it makes the skin look twenty again for her is a stretch. She uses it to cover up other skin blemishes as well. It can cover blemishes without looking blotchy and he uses it to cover up imperfections here and there.

This consumer does like the product but the shade is lighter than she expected. She has overcome this by building layers on her skin. She means she can make it as dark as she likes. Another client says it is an amazing product and she would recommend it.

This is a lengthy review to say the least: This person says that it is an adequate sunscreen and during the day it keeps the skin elastic and hydrated. When they are tanned they use it as an under eye concealer because it covers dark spots very well and skin imperfections as well. It is the best foundation they have used as it doesn’t make creases into canyons and it evens out skin tone very well. During the summer the skin is discolored and the product hides the skin discoloration adequately and it makes their face shine. It is all they need as a base for the eye makeup. I saw a picture of the product on their skin and in all honesty, it did not look very good. It did not match the tone of their skin at all. They have a light complexion and it looked like a dark spot on their hand.

The customer was surprised the product was too dark for their middle olive-colored complexion. They could not understand why the medium and light shades were too dark for their skin. This is a good question how can the lightest shade be too dark for olive-colored skin? If anything it should be too light. They returned the product to the company with no hassles. Because of this, they gave the product another star.

give your skin a little more protection against the ultraviolet rays of the sun

Benefits and Uses: There was no description of the product which is never helpful because how are you supposed to know what you are buying? The tube says the product has an SPF rating of 20 which is better than the other product which had an SPF rating of 15. This product will give your skin a little more protection against the ultraviolet rays of the sun. But still, it is not a strong protection against sun damage to your skin. It is supposed to reduce the size of pores and remove blemishes quickly according to the description on the tube. It will also balance out the tone of your skin. It is paraben free and non-comedogenic and it has been tested on oily skin. These details also came from the product’s tube. The company says this is a new breakthrough technology.

Feedback: The client says this is one of the best bb creams they have used. It has the SPF rating of 20 which helps to protect the skin and especially the skin under the eyes. It does not irritate the skin or the eyes. It goes on seamlessly on her skin and it blends well with the color of her skin. It controls oily spots she has on her skin and in general, it controls oil and it does not settle into fine lines around the mouth and eyes. She doesn’t like the yellow undertone it has. But her skin is fair with a warm undertone so she can wear it. Others may not like the yellow undertone or be able to wear the cream.

This one has oily, olive skin and the product works well to hide their blemishes. It may even prevent acne breakouts. It really hides blemishes well. Their issue was that they had oily skin and they felt putting too many products on would make the skin worse. This really not a criticism of the product per se.

This one has oily, olive skin and the product works well to hide their blemishes. It may even prevent acne breakouts. It really hides blemishes well. Their issue was that they had oily skin and they felt putting too many products on would make the skin worse. This really not a criticism of the product per se. This person is undecided as to whether they like the product or not. It has the blur effect meaning it blends well with their skin and the SPF rating is cool. But it makes their skin look dull and grey. Personally, a product that made my skin look dull and grey I would stop using immediately.

Another said it was too much sunscreen for her. It made it look like she was wearing full coverage makeup.She is fine for using it as spot coverage on her skin. This consumer loves the product and has been using it for two years. It is more of a foundation than a bb cream in her opinion. She has tried every foundation imaginable and this product works the best for her. She wishes the product came in more shades. Her skin color is light and this product never matches her skin tone but she covers this by using other makeup. She says if you have oily, acne-prone skin this stuff will work well for you.

This customer was disappointed that the sample size product she was sent was a lot smaller than the one shown in the picture. The live one was very skimpy and it wasn’t enough for her to use. She encourages the company to send a larger sized sample. She could not test the product. Hopefully, the company is listening and will begin to sen doubt larger-sized samples. This is false advertising they show a picture of a large-sized sample and then they send a small sample? They charge $4.00 dollars for a pint-sized sample this is not ethical. They should show the real size of the sample. Preferably, they will make larger samples for the $4.00 price tag.

The product for this consumer was overpriced and did not work well for them. It did not absorb/prevent oil from being released into the skin.  The coverage was too light and the shades were very limited. She said it might work well for someone who does not have oily skin like she has. It felt silky going on which she liked. This was the only thing she liked about the product.

You know the company advertises a big sample-sized product in their pictures but then they sent a small sample too small to be able to use on the skin. How is a consumer supposed to test the product out and decide if they want to buy the product or not? They also charge $4.00 for the sample which is expensive for such a small a sample size. Can the company be trusted if they are practicing unethical business practices like this? There is a trust factor missing here. How do you know the company will deal with you honestly. That is just it, you don’t know. They need to correct this problem. It could cost them sales in the future.

Benefits and Uses: Cover girl again, but you know the product will be good. The product description was exactly the same as the one given for the CoverGirl product listed above.

So, it will not be repeated here and you can read the description of the above product.

Feedback: The only negative review made absolutely no sense. The customer said it was the worst cram they have. This was the extent of the review and there was no more detail given. You do not know why the cream was so bad. This aa a very ambiguous review and would be of no help to anyone. It would have been enlightening if they would have elaborated on what they disliked the product so much. hey rated it a one-star which means they thought very unfavorably of the product. In fact, it seems like they really hated the product but you don’t know because they did not say.  This was a poorly written review.

One consumer said it went on nice and light and it felt like she was not wearing makeup at all. Another consumer wanted to use a lighter foundation on her face. She did some extensive research and decided to try this product. She uses it everyday and it has worked well for her.

Another consumer said it covers her skin seamlessly in that it matches her skin tone color. But it is too greasy and she has to us other makeup to cover the greasiness.

Another customer loved the product and it worked very well on her skin. It was not too oily and matched the color of her natural skin perfectly.
