Ageless Derma Foundation GGAgeless Derma Pressed Mineral Foundation
www.agelessderma.com

About: Ageless Derma’s press mineral makeup is incredible for your skin. It contains important and organic ingredients such as Vitamin A, E, and Green Tea. It also protects your skin from the son and has anti-aging benefits. I love all of the extras you get in one foundation! Usually you have to use serums, sunscreen, and moisturizers as well as your foundation! With Ageless derma, the foundation is all that you need. The coverage is pretty good. I will admit, it isn’t the BEST coverage out there, but since it is a “healthy” foundation, I will cut them some slack. It doesn’t leave your skin powdery like most mineral foundations. It really is beautiful and goes on very smooth. This would be an incredible gift for any women in your life, especially for mom!
