Upcoming Product Review: Covergirl and Olay


I’ve been accepted into the Covergirl and Olay BzzCampaign!

But what does that mean?  

Well, I’ll be receiving a package in the mail containing the Covergirl & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation and the Covergirl & Olay Pressed Powder to try out a few times, then I will write a review on this blog with my honest opinions and experiences with the product, and share it with BzzAgent.  If the results are favorable, I will continue to use the Covergirl and Olay foundation and pressed powder, and write one additional review of with more of the personal opinions and experiences with the product.

A word of caution:  The review will contain a photo of me sans makeup.  I wanted to forewarn you, so you aren’t scared when you see it =)

First Impressions:  I have always thought of the brands Covergirl and Olay to be good quality products, although I personally don’t use them in my typical morning makeup routine.  Years ago, I did, Covergirl was my ‘staple’ brand makeup, mostly because it was widely available, with many options to choose from (eyeshadows, eyeliner, foundation shades, etc.), and I could afford it.

I am looking forward to receiving these products in the mail and start playing, ahem trying them out!

The Review:  I received a a pair of Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles for participating in the Dr. Scholl’s for Her BzzAgent Campaign and sharing my honest opinions on the product, just as I am doing here.

I decided to try out the insoles when my husband and I were going to the AIA (American Institute of Architects) Exposition in DC, where we would be doing lots of walking – as we would be taking the metro into the city.  Here is m review, from the very beginning…After reviewing the insole and deciding they were a very nice looking product to be putting in the bottom of a shoe, I inserted the insole, and the first thing I noticed was the shape – in particular, the insole ends before the toes, so it gives you more toe room in those shoes that skimp on toe room (you know the ones I am talking about). Also, it’s self-adhesive, but not permanent, so if you don’t get the placement right the first time, you can adjust (or if you’re like me, move them from shoe to shoe =D).

Once we got to the Metro Station and really started walking around, I could tell a big difference with the insole being in my shoes.  The insoles gave the perfect amount of support for all the walking we did (from the car to the metro, from the metro, to the convention center, around the exposition and all the way back).  And for me, someone with back and leg problems, that’s quite an accomplishment.  put it this way – we had my foldable cane in the backpack just in case my pain got bad, and in case it got really bad, we could have gotten a wheelchair for the exposition (we’ve only had to do that a few times in rare cases of pain flare ups when it has gotten really bad).  Luckily, however, with a pain management program and good healthcare practitioners and lifestyle (trying) its not getting worse.

OK, sorry about the tangent, back to the insoles… I would say the helped a great deal with the amount of stamina I had in walking because my feet did start to hurt, I was putting pressure on the balls of my feet, and pressure was not running up my legs.  I also think it was helping me stand correctly, because of the supports. which  is terrific!

Even after getting home, and the day after, which is when I would really feel walking around like that in my feet in legs, I did feel a bit sore (because I am out of shape), but my feet felt just fine.  I look forward to wearing these insoles again and again in different shoes throughout the summer, and I look forward to the relief they will provide, just as they did this review.  I fully recommend the Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles for anyone looking to make their pretty shoes more comfortable, too!
