Great news—my daughter is getting married this summer! But I had her when I was almost 40, a fact that made me feel a little self-conscious about my skin when choosing my mother-of-the-bride dress. The reality is, as one ages, certain skin conditions may develop that leave you feeling less than confident, such as varicose veins and age spots.
That’s where the Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Perfector comes in. Whether you’re contending with the realities of aging skin, or looking to cover up a scar, tattoo or a bad bruise from last weekend, this waterproof body foundation claims to do it all.
What is the Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Perfector?
A type of body foundation, this Westmore Beauty makeup is a waterproof cream formulated to offer buildable coverage to conceal varicose veins, tattoos, age spots, scars and bruises for 24 hours, without transferring to clothes.
The product is very similar in look and feel to a face foundation but in larger quantity for applying to the legs, arms, hands, feet and chest.
Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Perfector features
The cream offers “instant coverage” as soon is you blend it in with your fingers or a body makeup brush. It takes 10 minutes to fully dry, but once it is, the foundation is waterproof and transfer-proof. You can also add more to conceal any darker blemishes, but you’ll have to wait another 10 minutes before dressing.
It comes in seven shades to even out skin tone from very light to deep, and three tube sizes.

How we tested it

I opted to use the product on my legs, which have some discoloration from varicose veins, for this review. To test the Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Perfector, I first prepped my skin. I used the Westmore Skin Conditioning Exfoliator, but any oil-free body scrub or soap will remove any dirt and oil. I applied lotion and sunscreen, making sure they were oil-free. This is optional; you can use these later once the product is dry.
I then applied the foundation to my legs, following the instructions to use upward and outward strokes to cover the area and letting it dry for a full 10 minutes before getting dressed. I found the product applied easily and went on smoothly while providing an even skin tone. It also didn’t feel heavy at all on my skin and didn’t wipe off on my clothing as I went about my day.
Once I had the Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Protector on my legs, I tested how it reacted to different situations.
First, I went swimming for about 45 minutes. When I came out of the pool, my legs looked the same, and there wasn’t any concealer on my swimsuit.
The temperature in my area wasn’t yet “sweating weather,” so I went into the sauna after I got out of the pool. I stayed in long enough to feel the sweat on my body.
Finally, I took a shower using an oil-free soap. Patting dry seemed to make the most sense. I did not rub dry, although I did rub in a small area for the sake of the review.
At the end of the process, there wasn’t any body makeup on my towel, even where I rubbed dry. The product met my approval, and I am ready for my daughter’s wedding.

How long does the Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Perfector last?
At least the 24 hours promised! For me, the product lasted overnight and into the second day. Taking a second shower finally took the product off.
Can you use the Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Perfector on your face?
You can use it as face foundation, but it won’t last as long. This is because faces tend to have more oil than legs and the product information indicates it should be put on an oil-free area.
Does Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Perfector cover stretch marks?
It covered stretch marks like other imperfections, reducing their appearance but not eliminating them.
What other reviewers have to say
“Received compliments on my legs as soon as I used this product,” Westmore reviewer Marilyn writes. “Very cheering for an elderly person to hear. My arms look smooth and younger.”
“I’m three months shy of 70 years old. I’ve tried self-tanners and they were always a disappointment,” says shopper Cynthia M. on Westmore’s website. “I also have visible veins and an 8-inch scar from a knee replacement 11 years ago. My skin is translucent and does not tan anymore. I tried this product to cover veins, even skin tone and give some light color. I’m very pleased. It lasts several days, too.”
Westmore shopper Caroline C. also loves the look, saying, “Very natural-looking finish. I didn’t put it all the way into my toes since I’m wary of it rubbing off on shoes, but it blends so well. Covers imperfections and veins extremely well. I’m thankful to have something that makes me feel confident in shorts.”
With the Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Protector, my blotches and age spots disappeared, and my legs and arms look smooth. It conceals most imperfections, such as scars, skin discolorations and blotchiness.
I would recommend buying Westmore Beauty Body Coverage Protector and plan to use it at my daughter’s wedding. It didn’t cover everything as advertised, but it covered enough and evened out the skin tone on my legs. When I look at the before and after pictures, I prefer looking like the after pictures. And it isn’t just for legs. You can also use it on the arms and chest.
Now all I need is a slimming swimsuit to wear at the pool in the hotel.
