Covergirl TruBlend

I got to try out some foundation for free thanks to BzzAgent.com Before deciding which foundation to test out, they had a link to go to which helped you find the perfect one for your skin. I always have trouble deciding which color was going to work best for me, but the Embrace Your Face tool told me to get the TruBlend foundation. I think I ended up picking the same color I’ve used in the past, but it matched perfectly with my skin.

One squirt is more than enough to cover your entire face. It covered up the red patches on my face and made them completely blend in with my natural face color. It didn’t really hide my dark circles around my eyes but I guess you could buy another product to fix that issue.

The foundation was really light. As someone who doesn’t normally wear makeup, I was aware that I had something on, but not always. I found my face broke up more often when wearing the foundation, but that could be because I found myself touching my face more often, forgetting that I was wearing it. I also applied the foundation using my fingers. I don’t know if makeup wearers usually use brushes instead…

Overall, I do enjoy this product and would buy it again in the future. It’s great when you want to make your skin look flawless.

L’Oreal Paris Hydra-Total 5 Routine

I received these three products for free thanks to influenster.com. Before starting this system but skin was very dry and flaky. But I have to say, these really worked for me. I have sensitive skin so I’m always nervous about trying something new. In the past I’ve had products that made my skin even more dry. There have been products that caused my eczema to flare up making it look like I’ve been crying. But the Hydra-Total 5 system has been great.

You start by applying the cleanser. Using a cotton ball, you dab the product on your skin. You don’t rub or use water which I found a little bit strange. You apply the toner next using the same method. I don’t really like using the cotton ball because it leaves little pieces of cotton on my face. And you end up going through a lot of cotton balls over time (4 per day). But combined with the moisturizer, it really did improve my skin.

I was skeptical of the moisturizer at first because you only apply it once per day and it’s supposed to provide 24 hour moisture. With previous products I was creaming my face at least two to three times per day. But this actually works. I noticed a difference in my skin almost right away. My skin has been smooth and soft the entire time I’ve been using it. I would definitely recommended this product, especially if you have really dry skin.
