Covergirl Clean Liquid Makeup, Sensitive Skin Reviews
i used to use only powder from physicians formula, but i wanted to try liquid to even out my skin tone. i thought covergirl would be ideal because they had more shades and a "sensitive" class of makeup. This however was a HUGE mistake. theres a reason this product is so cheap and its because it will ruin your skin. i went from having nearly flawless skin with maybe 1 or 2 breakouts when it was that time of the month, to pimples ALL over my cheeks and painful cystic ones along my jawline. my self confidence has significantly gone down. im so embarrassed by the way my skin looks it makes me want to cry. Dont be cheap when choosing foundation. ugh biggest mistake of my life. Now i use Mary Kay and its working out well so far. ive only stopped using CG in the past month n my skin is already being less destructive. im hoping my face will clear up asap n mary kay is definitely not making my skin worse like CG was doing. i hope no one has to experience the shame and embarrassment I feel from this horrible acne. Dont use CG!!!
Good Coverage for Light Breakouts/Sunspots
I bought this to cover up the breakouts that happened after I made the mistake of using Revlon Colorstay foundation which totally broke my normally blemish-free face almost completely out. This foundation has been a life-saver as it has helped me cover the pseudo-scarring which has occurred on my skin and has not made my skin breakout more. I'm about 4 weeks into switching from the Revlon to switching to this and my skin has been clearing up quite a bit. Due to the terribleness of the Revlon Colorstay foundation situation, I've been very carefully removing all of my makeup with coconut oil, so keep that in mind just as a caveat that that is the method I've been using to clean my skin off. I'll agree with another reviewer that the bottle is not the most well-designed for aiding in actually getting the product out. You may have to dip a brush into the bottle.
My Holy Grail foundation for acne-prone, sensitive skin
I have been on Dan's regimen and products since Jan 2010 - and have clear skin. I wanted a light foundation to help even out my skin tone from acne scars and melasma. I hunted down this foundation (not available in stores, it's been discontinued - CoverGirl makes a clean, but it's not specified specifically for "sensitive" skin anymore like the old bottles used to) - on the web to try. I got color classic ivory 210 - and found it was a perfect match for my skin tone (more yellow, not pink). I was afraid it would be too light - but it blended well, and I don't need to use a lot since my coverage is light and only for skin spots/uneven skin tone. To me, this is a thick foundation, but that's because I usually only wear powder, no foundation. But it did work wonders for evening out my skin tone without being dry. I will update if this breaks me out - but now wearing it all day for 2 days - i've had no problems, no itchiness. Nothing. I wear Dan's BP lotion on my skin after I shower, and apply some Olay sensitive skin moisturizer to my dry areas - then I let my skin sit for about 1-2 hours. I then apply this foundation with a beauty blender sponge - and I'm good to go. I usually dust a little Neutrogena Shine Free powder over to set it - but that's only if you get super shiny skin. I do. I found this foundation helped take the redness away on my skin from BP that I always tend to have - and it's been great. I will note that the bottle I ordered is the ORIGINAL Clean sensitive skin foundation that came out with the lime green sticker and lime green bottle cap. Just to make sure - there are some others that say "Clean" but aren't for sensitive skin. This was one of the original sensitive skin foundations they came out with - and it's water based. It does contain TALC - which normally breaks me out - but I will update if this does become an issue. So far, nothing. The foundation is so light - it feels like you have nothing on. EDIT: after a week of use (every single day for hours while at work) - I have to come back on here and give praise to this discontinued product. I have never, ever been a foundation wearer. Ever. The thought of putting something on my skin like that just made me want to ITCH. I have very sensitive skin, have had acne since my twenties - but with my skin under control, I have some light discoloration that I'd like to even out - and THIS STUFF is PERFECT. It's water-based, very light - does a good coverage (I think it's buildable) and it DOES NOT BREAK ME OUT. AT ALL. I use this over my BP lotion after it has dried and my moisturizer about 1-2 hours later - and I can wear it all day. I pat some shine free powder over it - and am good to go. If you have very acne-prone skin, please hunt your color down in this sensitive skin (green top, green sticker Cover Girl bottle) and try it. Hands down, the best foundation I've ever tried. It even has talc, but that does not seem to bother my skin at all.
As someone with very sensitive skin I find this make-up a lifesaver. It feels beautiful on the face, blends really well, and most importantly - it does not break me out. My only qualms with this product are that there is no SPF and that the bottle, while both attractive and durable, can be difficult to use. Typically I'll use an SPF 50+ (La Roche Posay Anthelios) followed by this foundation for day to day use. Its very buildable so you can go from a natural light look to one with more coverage without looking like you've caked something on. At night I use a very think layer and apply Estee Lauder Double Wear over the top. I would definitely recommend this foundation to anyone with sensitive skin who wants a product that they can build and wear all day without worrying about breakouts or irritation.
Doesn't cause acne! Good for sensitive or oily skin!
Good color match/Looks natural Doesn't feel gross on skin Doesn't cause skin to break out Doesn't cover every mark I have very sensitive/oily skin and this is my favorite concealer. It covers well, doesn't feel heavy on my skin, doesn't make my skin oily, and does not cause break outs.
