So after running out of bare minerals ID, I decided to take this foundation for a whirl and see if it would provide better coverage than my normal routined minerals. The pictures always impressed me with how the foundation seemed to make the skin look clean, even, dewy and glowing. I had read the reviews on MA and thought hey, why not. PROS It definitely covers everything It can be layered to function as a concealer, a very good one at that It makes the skin look even, glowing etc.. as mentioned It lasts all day Its a great look for pictures CONS Oh my goodness did it make my skin break out!!! WARNING!!! Its hard to get the right color. And if you pick even slightly the wrong one...it looks ridiculous I liked the look, but most would call it a bit cakey depending on your skin type So overall it does provide the coverage and looked great once I found a good color. Price, easy to get by on. However, it is not for those with sensitive or acne prone skin. If you even have larger pores I would watch out. I tried a couple other trial and errors to find out I need to stick to healthy minerals. I am no longer using bare minerals as it also has a slight irritant ingredient. Currently using Extra Virgin olive minerals from Body Shop and am soooo happy.
Can I give it a 3.5? The fact is that this toner does TONE and work well and couples with its ability to keep your skin more clear. In addition it does make your pores smaller as advertised. However, it doesn't make a huge difference when it comes to the size of the pores as I would like it to. Pig pores are inherent in my family. So I will be on a search for one that works a little better, if not this one will do as it is the best one I have used so far...

I fell in love with good old classic Olay night cream and so I though I would give this a try. CONS: It doesn't moisturize as well as the other Olay creams. It doesn't work to repair the skin, or breaks in the skin as fast as other brands of moisturizers I've used. It doesn't work super fast. PROS: It WILL firm up your skin with time and diligence. It leaves the texture more radiant...but again nothing extreme and super quick. I would buys again as it is very dependable for results though. I see the difference when I don't use it:)
