The manufacturer promises that the Vichy Dermablend Total Body Corrective Foundation offers extremely high coverage that has a long lasting effects (16 hour hold) and a flawless finish.

The product is also resistant to water, sweat and rub which is perfect for an active lifestyle.

Pros:

The product is really good at covering imperfections. And my skin stay very soft with the product and it looks natural on the skin. It can completely cover large imperfection like scars and large colorful tattoos.

Cons:

Some people cannot match their skin color with the product and it can appear orange. Can be a bit dry and patchy.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15, moisturizer, lotion, SPF 15, sunscreen

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 is moisturizer that is gentle on your skin. It's good for all skin types. You can use it before you do makeup or after shaving.

I use this moisturizer everyday and especially when going out. The texture is light, non-greasy and it doesn't break me out. A lot of beauty products contain mineral oil and it's said to cause break outs, good thing Cetaphil is mineral oil-free. This product not only nourishes and hydrates your skin but it also protects you from sun's harmful rays with SPF 15.

It's easy to use. It doesn't even feel like you have anything on. What I love about this product is that it's really gentle on my skin and it's not greasy.
