Exuviance CoverBlend Skin Caring Foundation Review.

Exuviance

Skincare meets Makeup. Exuviance is a brand I've never heard of before, so I was intrigued about this newly formulated foundation, it's set up the high-end in cost and blends skincare and a concealing foundation that's aim is to achieve a healthy, flawless complexion. It's meant to be one of the most wearable fusions of make-up and skincare available on the market.

The brand says that this is an anti-aging treatment foundation that is smudge-resistant with light-to-medium coverage & all day coverage. It's a water-based, oil free foundation that ensures flawless, lightweight coverage while helping to reduce the visible signs of aging with the antioxidant-rich Polyhydroxy Acid Gluconolactone to help soften fine lines and wrinkles while providing treatment as it promotes a smoother appearance while concealing everything from minor blemishes to major discolorations and protection. For all skin types even uber sensitive which will benefit from antioxidants and sunscreen protection. The high-tech formula visibly reduces the signs of ageing as well as treating the skin while providing all-day coverage and protection from UVA and UVB rays, the new formula contains a physical sunscreen, protecting the skin with a factor 20.

Swatch of True Beige on my inner arm.
On my face where there's a few skin concerns. I decided to see how it 'concealed' and treated problem areas.
First Impressions
I agree that it's definitely a water based foundation, it's fluid and light, shake up the bottle for about 30 seconds before using to mix up the foundation. Then you can use your fingers, a sponge or a brush to apply. I used a buffing brush to apply on my face. As it dries on the face, it gives a powder finish. I noticed when on my arm it dried and I went to rub it in, it kind of flaked and gave this damp powder effect as I rubbed it off. On my face I think this foundation is too light, it gives more of a grey and lighter cast making the skin appear sullen and dull. Maybe Golden Beige or Desert Sand would of been a better match but I've got a feeling it would of been touch and go. As it dries to an almost powder/velvet finish, I'm not sure how dry skin would work with this? I have a feeling the dry skin might be accentuated. I'm quite on the fence with the foundation - maybe in a shade that'll pep my skin more it could of worked but with it being so light in coverage, I don't see how it helps to conceal anything on my face.
