COVERGIRL & OLAY Foundation and Powder Review

It's a good thing I snagged my hunky hubby almost 15 years ago, because now he is stuck with me! I admit, that I am not the hot little thing that I once was.  (not sure that I really was ever hot, but you know what I mean)  Lately, I have been noticing that my skin is just not the same as it was when I was 18.  I now notice that I have these brown spots all my face that apparently are "age spots".  I also have these permanent dark circles under my eyes from the lack of sleep that I have be enduring for the last five years of having young children.   Lastly, the smile that I always have on my face seems to be a curse...who knew that a person could get wrinkles from smiling too much?  Basically, I need a make-over.  While I cannot afford, nor would I want plastic surgery, there had to be something that I could do to improve my overall look.  As if it was meant to be, I received the opportunity to sample the new COVERGIRL & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation and Pressed Powder. As a Bzz agent, I was sent two full size bottle of each of them picked out to match my skin tone.  For the past couple of months, I have been trying this out on the days that I actually get the time to do my make-up.  Although it was extremely difficult to take a picture of myself with my phone, I did manage to get a couple of pictures so you could see the difference.  

Although the change was not drastic, I definitely noticed some improvements. 

Here are a couple of things that I noticed with it:

1.  I felt way more confident.  
2.  I loved the light weight feel of the foundation. 
3.  My skin looked radiant and my shine was gone.  
4.  The wrinkles around my eyes were less noticeable. 
5.   I got complemented on my complexion. Without make-up, people always comment on how tired I look or asked if I was sick.
6.  Although the powder was soft and smooth, if my skin was even a bit dry it looked a bit flaky.  

Overall, I was very thankful for this opportunity.  My hubby tells me all the time that I am beautiful without makeup, but sometimes it is nice to feel pretty.  I admit this foundation and powder made me feel pretty.  Will I buy more of it in the future when I run out,  You bet!  

Note:  I received this for free as a Bzz Agent, but I was not compensated for my honest opinions.
