Product Review..Wet N Wild Ultimate Match SPF 15 Liquid Foundation..

Wet N Wild Ultimate Match SPF 15 Liquid Foundation
(A picture of one I bought 2 days ago)
"Glides on weightlessly for a sheer to medium coverage that's never heavy, chalky or dull, evens out flaws
with a silky semi matte finish,that let's your natural luminescence shine through.Contains spf 15 for the ultimate in anti-aging treatment.

Colors Available
           * Ivory       *Beige
           * porcelain *Bisque
           * Nude      * Sand
My Skin
My skin had always been dry,using a moisturizer has helped tremendously,it makes my make up look even better,I do get pimples once in a while,but nothing major.

It is true to the statement sheer to medium coverage, and I have to disagree that it evens out flaws,whenever I get a headache my forehead turns red not to red but its still noticeable without foundation.When I use this I have to use a small amount of concealer to reduce the appearance of redness.
That is the only problem I have found with this liquid foundation,as far as the actual product not packaging or anything( I will get to packaging later ..)
I don't mind using a bit of concealer on problem areas,but if your looking for a full coverage this liquid foundation is not for you.

How It Works For Me
Aside from the coverage it works really well.Its lightweight and perfect for the summer,there's nothing more that I hate than wearing liquid foundation during the summer and having it feel heavy and thick.
It has the consistency of lotion and a little bit goes along way,one bottle will last me about a good month and a half..during the summer not so much because I use it everyday.
To me it has a light scent of the sun block..but its not overpowering.
It blends really well doesn't cake or settle,docent leave my face too matted, it gives me a nice flawless look without having to wear so much liquid foundation.
Staying lasts me about a good 8 hours..after 8 I have to reapply my shine free loose powder because my face gets shiny from walking around so much during the day. 

It has gotten bad reviews for Coverage..some find that its not enough coverage and for others its just right..
Packaging is another main reason for the bad reviews..I will agree on that,it is a little bit heavy but not enough for me not to carry this with me..but it depends on your preference.
The same goes for whether or not it has a pump,me I don't mind not having a pump.I have a rimmel London liquid foundation with a pump and I tried using it for my wet n wild but alas it doesn't fit.
Something that no one has mentioned on all of the reviews I have read is that the lettering peels off,
(This is the one that's empty)
This foundation works differently on everybody, you can read all the good and bad reviews but ultimately its a liquid foundation that you would have to buy to see if it works for you..I bought it for either 3.99 or 4.99 don't really remember how much it was..I would rather be out 4 or 5 bucks vs more..
I hope this review was helpful in someway here is a link for the video review I did on YouTube..♥

♥..My SkinCare Faves..♥

My Skin Care Faves

St.Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub
Blemish & Blackhead Control

My Skin ♥
My skin has always been dry, no major acne problems accept the occasional pimple from stress, lack of water, bad eating habits, or mother nature paying me a visit.

Before St.Ives..♥
Before using this product the only thing I would use to wash my face was soap and water and whatever lotion we had at the house at the time.

*Fights Blemishes without over drying
*Exfoliates to prevent Blemishes & Clean Pores

Apricots : Apricot oil is known to hydrate & nourish the skin
                 *Carotenoids (similar to Vitamin A) or Carotene which is found in foods like
                                              *carrots    *Pumpkins
                                              *Spinach   *Tomatoes
                                              *Oranges   * Hot Chili Peppers
                  *All have at least one or more members of the carotene family known as
             Powerful antioxidants
             It may seem like to much power but it's super gentle.

Corn Kernnel Meal:
        Flour ground from dried corn 
        Cornmeal makes softer feeling fresh skin possible
        Soft but gently powerful,all natural exfoliant that promotes skin cell turnover
           and regeneration.

        all natural exfoliant ingredient in the scrub
        Known for its hard shell, but when its ground it becomes an amazingly 
         effective all natural exfoliant in the scrub.

How I use it..
Step 1 : I splash my face with hot water 3 times, waiting 15 seconds between
             splash,this gives your pores time to open up.
Step 2 : Apply Scrub, I put a little more on my forehead and nose..
Step 3 :  Let it set for at least 5 minutes
             I get a tingling feeling which lets me know its doing what its supposed to be 
             doing which is fighting those ugly blackheads...bleh!!
             I will admit I do leave it on longer than 5 mins, my routine in the shower is 
             Shampoo,apply St.Ives,Conditioner,remove st.Ives scrub.
Step 4 : Rinse it off..
Step 5 : Apply cold water using the same method as the hot water.
Freshly exposed skin may be prone to moisture loss,so when you use the scrub its really important to moisturize after you get out of the shower.

Using this scrub your skin should more readily absorb the moisturizer that you put on afterwards

There have been so many good reviews about this scrub..and of course there are some bad reviews...
The bad reviews have mostly been about the scrub not removing enough blackheads.
Im not gonna lie when Im in a hurry in the morning for work or school, I don't leave the scrub on for that long, and I do notice that It doesn't get rid of alot of the blackheads..
I would assume that people use it leave it on for less than 3 minutes and right when it starts working they rinse it off.I would bet that if they left it on for 3 minutes like the package says they would have better results.
Other bad reviews are because the exfoliating beads over dry their skin..if you have sensitive skin I would recommend using the one for sensitive skin instead of the orange naturally clear banner, it has a purple sensitive skin banner.
I have nothing but good thing to say about this product..hope this review helped..
Thank You for taking time out of your day to read this...
