Is It Worth It. Age Rewind (Review)

I decided I’m going to do a little series called Is It Worth It. In this series, I’ll review different products that I have and new products that I get overtime. In today’s first post I’m going to review the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind and Eraser.


This foundation has been out for like 8 years. I got mine on sale at Walgreens for $5.99 and the original price Is $12.99. I’m going to explain what I liked and didn’t like and let you know If It’s a buy or bye. Let’s start with the applicator. The applicator Is a plush microfiber sponge. I liked that It was soft but didn’t like that It got messy real fast.


To get the foundation going It took I think around 10 turns to get the foundation out. My recommendation Is that don’t get too click-happy a decent amount of product does come out. The microfiber sponge Is soft to the touch but I noticed that It did harden up some after the first use and yes I put the cap back on.

Let’s talk formula. The formula has SPF 18 which I give kudos to Maybelline because whoever wears foundation should have some extra sun protection. It also has Goji berries Is a powerful antioxidant and super fruit and has been known to protect the skin from environmental pollution and premature aging.

I’ve been using this product long enough to know that It didn’t help with making my skin look younger. It’s a pretty thin liquid and It’s what I would call not full coverage at all. It does have room to build on and I found myself putting on a few layers before I got the coverage I was looking for and It never truly helped cover some bumps on my face.

Pictured here I’m wearing 2 layers of the Maybelline age rewind eraser and I still felt like It wasn’t enough coverage.


Since I had a few layers my face felt cakey and I know you know what I’m talking about. I’ve been known to cake my face but that’s when I add layers on makeup on my face. I felt this way after 2 layers of foundation and that’s it. I wear a matte primer by Wet ‘n’ Wild to help tone down some of the oiliness I got going on. I’m combination skin so I like to use a hydrating moisturizer on the dry parts and a matte primer on the oily parts and I have to say It does work.

If you wear glasses like I do I wouldn’t recommend this foundation. Even after I baked and took the proper steps to make sure my glasses wouldn’t move and the makeup wouldn’t move It still moved. I didn’t have this problem with the Physicians Formula CC+ cream.

Overall If you are looking for full coverage or a foundation that doesn’t move around then this Isn’t for you. There are TONS of other foundations out there that are around the $12.99 mark and that does a way better job. As makeup wearers we all have had hit and misses with finding the perfect foundation and I know I’m still on the hunt for It. I want to put it out there just because this foundation didn’t work me doesn’t mean you’ll have the same results. Everybody’s results with beauty products varies.

Here Is a link to the Physicians Formula that I mentioned. It’s not full coverage, It’s very sheer but I enjoy wearing on no-makeup makeup days.

Here Is a link to my tried and true Primer that I love.

Here Is a link to my tried and true moisturizer that I can’t live without.

Maybe try it as a concealer and then of course setting it with a powder?

    Sadly, I had to throw It away because the microfiber sponge top broke. I never thought about using It as a concealer. Which you think I would considering I use my tinted moisturizer as a concealer on light makeup days.
