This is a great foundation, it really is. It covers well, blends effortlessly, and looks great on your skin. The fact that is has a pump is a miracle in and of itself. It takes very little to cover your face AND get the coverage you want. Alas, I am much too oily for this bad boy. If I had normal or dry skin I would have found my HG, but since I am not that lucky I will keep searching... :(
CoverGirl & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation, Classic Tan and Creamy Beige, 1 fl oz by CoverGirl looks and feels just like Covergirl Clean foundations. Tone Rehab literally melts into the skin and gives a slightly dewey finish. It blends well with other Covergirl foundations.
Personally, I use two shades to match my own NC-37 skintone (matched at a department store, but made no purchases); I mix tone rehab shade 160 Classic Tan with 150 Creamy Beige. This forms a shade that's 2 shades lighter than my own skintone. The color darkens or oxidizes to my original skintone after 30 minutes of application because of my oily skin.
At times, I'd also apply the two different shades by themselves as a one step method for creating highlights and contours (regular or reverse methods) without having to use more products. Tone rehab also does not splay concealers applied underneath the product (as long as the concealer is set with finishing powder). The foundation's feel on the skin requires the use of a setting/finishing/pressed powder to ensure long wear use.
I have never purchased department store foundations. This alone affects my personal judgement on reasonable prices on products. Serious cosmetic enthusiasts will always recommend using department store products by the sheer fact that they truly are made better according to the pricing.
However, CoverGirl & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation will be as high as I'm willing to pay and nothing can beat shelling out $11-$16 for this foundation compared to paying $20-$60 for 1 oz. of product. Despite the inclusion of an anti-aging serum in tone rehab, it can be used by anybody at any age!
Have horrid skin to match to any foundation. Gave this a shot. It works fantastic. Try if you have fair skin!
I wasn't expecting to like this since CG foundations have never worked out for me. But I was suckered in by the Olay serum part of the foundation and thought I'd give it a try. My skin is more on the dry side. I have redness around the nose and cheek but my skin is clear without any really dry patches. Now that I'm getting older, I'm looking for something moisturizing with good coverage. First, I'm around NC30 and purchased this in Medium Beige. It's a good color match. I'd like it a little more yellow but it's the most perfect color match that I've ever had for a CG foundation. The texture is a bit thick but it blends easily with my Real Techniques stippling brush. Has a slight floral scent. The coverage is really good. Leaves me with a flawless face but with a nice satin finish. What I love is that it doesn't feel heavy at all! I don't feel like I'm wearing foundation. I get really good wear out of this too. Lasts pretty much all day but it does get a little oily looking towards the end. And my skin feels so soft all day but I'm afraid that this might transfer on clothing because of it's dewiness. I've been using this for almost two weeks now and haven't experienced any breakouts either. The only con for me is the price. I think it retails for about $14.99 for 1oz. I had coupons and got it for $9.99. I can also see this foundation not working for oily skin gals. It'll probably feel too greasy and not long lasting. I think it's definitely worth a try if your skin is normal to dry or combo.
My skin has always hated foundations. Liquid ones anyway. It would almost always look feel like an oil slick on my face, if it didn't look oily, it looked cakey, and if it didn't look cakey, it didn't cover anything.
I have combination skin, so it's hard to find what texture or foundation that works, whether it be liquid, powder or cream-to-powder or mousse. it never looked quite right. I hate matte foundations, i like a little bit of a glow, without being full on oily. and i find that full coverage powders do not work at all on my skin, SO cakey!
But this foundation feels so so incredibly light, and feels that way throughout the day,it does what it says it tones my face, looks glowy and even and i just love it already. The smell is strong but it's not a bad smell so i can deal with it. I love the pump dispenser, my only con is that it is quite expensive for the amount that you get.
I apply it with a brush and blend in circular motions. And i barely use a full pump to cover my whole face. I will probably end up buying this again.
I can't believe I didn't review this for the short time I had it. At the time that I used this I had combination skin (I'm doing a skincare overhaul & it's slightly dry right now). So at the time this foundation did not work for me because my oily skin showed through. Not only that but the lasting power on this foundation isn't the best. I apply my make-up at 2pm and I don't get home till midnight. This does not last the entire time and I'm lucky if it makes it half way (6hrs). Not only that but it transfers to everything. Then to add to the fact that I'm about a NC15 and I got this in the 2nd lightest shade. That was my mistake. The other was thinking that CoverGirl would finally come out with a foundation that's skin toned for those who aren't pink/orange (their foundations come in light pink, dark pink and am I glowing pink yet pink). So I've given up on them and Maybelline. These drugstore brands need to learn what a natural skin color is. A neutral foundation can work wonders for many different undertones (which is why I like Revlon). That's why I don't like this. The packaging it really nice but I don't know if you'd be able to get the last drop out of this.
Overall: Staying power sucks, not for oily/combination skin, and it's pink like crazy (obviously not for olive skin gals).
Note: I give products that I think others can work with a 3. I don't think a product deserves less if I don't like it but someone else might.
This is a great drugstore find. I finally gave up on my Revlon PhotoReady after I checked my makeup in direct sunlight today, I was much too sparkly. I set out to find something more matte, yet still creamy. I did my research on this product and really thought about it before purchasing. What really drew me to it was that it was mixed with Olay serum. My skin LOVES Olay products, so I thought it would be a win-win; I could cover up my skin while nourishing it. A little about my skin: I have minimal acne scaring, some dry patches (I'm a true combination skin type -- oily nose and forehead, but dry cheeks), and hormonal breakouts. Anyway, back to the product. I picked it up in the second lightest color, Classic Ivory (I am between MAC NC15-NC20, and this is a pretty good match). I love that it has a pump, so it makes it easy for me to not make am mess. I pumped one pump out and it kind of has a mousse-like texture to it. It blends like a dream and covers up my pink scars pretty well; I don't need as much concealer with this product. I would say the finish is satin. It isn't dewy nor matte, but does not look heavy. I would definitely set this with a light powder as it is a little slippery. The price is pretty steep for drugstore ($17), but I had a coupon so I only paid $14. ***EDIT: I stopped using this because it made my face a little too oily, but it's still a great foundation if your skin isn't oily.
Edit: Day 3-This foundation is perfect for me! I'm in love, so I'm giving it 5 lippies.
I picked this up yesterday at CVS, for $17 and change. Fortunately I had a $4 off coupon, and it came in handy for this purchase. I like it very much! I'm NW20-25, and Creamy Natural has always been a good fit for me in Cover Girl. I wish they would extend the names to Natureluxe, because I fall in between Aspen and Sandstone that I wore this summer.
I tend to like a light coverage, and this gives a bit more than that, towards medium, but it sheers out nicely and covers pores beautifully! My cheeks felt comfortable, and my nose didn't get oily. It looks fresh after hours of wear. Reminds me of Chanel Teint Perfection that I tried this summer (and used a generous sample). I would say the finish is natural and radiant. It's my new favorite, after one day!
I am very impressed with this. Covers my sun damage spots and pores wonderfully, but doesn't look cakey or heavy. My skin has recently become dryer and this stays put ALL day. PLUS it smells REALLY good. I highly recommend!!
Purchased this from Ulta, and kept my receipt handy--that's how sure I was I wouldn't like this product.
And you know, I really didn't like it at first. I wanted to give it several tries, though, and it has proven to have some very good and redeeming qualities.
First, it's the best shade match I've ever had in a CG product; for reference, I'm NW20 in MAC, and the Nude Beige is a really good match.
Second, the finish is quite good. It's neither too dewy nor matte. I apply this with a fluffy foundation brush, spritzed once or twice with a fixative, and it looks great. It doesn't settle into pores or wrinkles. The coverage is probably medium. (I haven't tried "building" it, so cannot address that.)
Finally, and probably most importantly for me, it lasts a good 8 hours with a light dusting of setting powder. (My dry skin seems to "eat" foundation, even with a primer. Sigh.)
Though I only gave it an overall rating of "3," it probably deserves a 3.5 or 4, and I may yet re-do the rating after further "wear and tear." I would repurchase, and that is unusual for me. Definitely worth a try!
