My Experience with Cover FX Custom Infusion Drops – F+ Neroli Hydration Drops:
I have dry skin, so naturally winter season is least enjoyed by me in terms of my beauty routine. I suffer from a lot of dry patches which tends to make my foundation look patchy and cake-y. When I read the claims of this product, I was very intrigued. This product comes in 4 types or variants that are designed to address specific concerns, so naturally I gravitated toward the “hydrating” blend.
Packaging: Comes in a glass bottle with a dropper. The bottle is see through which is good to see the amount of product left, but also makes the ingredients unstable due to exposure to light. Hence I do keep this tucked away in my drawer. The applicator is a drop dispenser which works well with this product.
Texture: This product has a thin, runny oil like texture. It is very slippery (like silicone products but is a much diluted liquid form), but does not feel heavy or greasy. The product is very light in density hence it spreads, absorbs and soothes my skin instantly.
Usage: I love this product and use it in multiple ways. I would sometimes use it as a skin care step prior to applying makeup on its own or mixed into a serum or moisturizer, but my absolute preferred way of using this product is mixed into my foundation, especially ones which I know are drying and/or matte. I take some foundation on the back of my hand and add as much as 3-4 drops (only because by skin is super dry, but for normal skin, I wouldn’t recommend doing more than 1 or 2 drops) of this product and it integrates into the foundation well without separating. I find that after I do this, my foundation glides so much easily on my skin as it has a notable slip to it given by mixing in these drops. It does not alter the finish of my foundation, so matte foundation gives a matte finish, but it does give it a hint of a natural, healthy glow coming through. I have not noticed it reducing the wear time of my foundation, instead it helps it look better throughout the day, by helping it to become more flexible, not creasing or cracking so much. It also helps my foundation not accentuate my dry patches by clinging to them. It does reduce the coverage just a tiny bit hence you do need a little more foundation than you usually would just on its own. It also nourishes my skin and I have seen my skin look better the more I use it.
Fragrance: It has a moderately strong herbal scent which is not off putting.
Overall, I absolutely love this product or I should say my dry skin loves it! I used to sometimes mix a drop of facial oil in my foundation, but never liked the effect it gave me as it broke down my foundation, reducing the wear time of my makeup and made my face look shiny. This product delivered the exact same results I was looking for, but without all the cons. I love the versatility of this product where you can use this with basically any makeup/skin care item in your kit. If you are a dry skin gal or someone who has an issue with your face makeup never looking as good as you envision in your head, this is the product you need ! I highly recommend this!
I would love to try the “Radiance” type next.
