The Body Shop foundation review

Hey everyone, hope you are not getting to drowned by this weather! It’s been raining quite a lot here in Birmingham. For the first month of 2017, I decided to have a month where I buy more drugstore and budget items rather than always being dazzled by high end. I’ve done quite well, I’ve only bought something from Selfridges once and the Zoeva palette I bought was not expensive. So I’ve spent my beauty shopping trips in Boots, Superdrug and The Body Shop. 

After finding out that I have normal to dry skin, I’ve been looking for products that suit my skin type. I don’t really have many drugstore foundations so as i had 40% off at The Body Shop, I thought I would try theirs. It is labelled as a moisture foundation with an SPF of 15. I love the texture of it, it’s very fluid like and light. On my skin ( I have a lot of blemishes), I’d say it’s fair to medium coverage. It does look as though it’s build able though especially if you like to mix your foundations. It blends beautifully with a damp beauty sponge. So dewy and weightless. It’s also fragrance free. 

 

It dispenses from a pump but I feel the pump is very cheaply made and feels flimsy. The packaging of this product is very plasticky if that’s a word. I bought mine from the Bullring branch in Birmingham, and I don’t know if it’s just them but it didn’t look as though they had big shade range. But maybe that’s why The Body Shop are known for their foundation drops kit as those can make your foundation lighter or darker. I am considering buying the drops as the shade I bought was too light and also it would be interesting to add the drops to other brands of foundation. But I hope they do more shades as it isn’t fair that darker skinned people would have to buy two products just to get their shade. 
I had mixed the foundation with my MAC one here as the shade I bought was too light. 

I mixed it with MAC here to get a better shade. 


All in all I like the formula of this foundation and £15 is not a bad price. This one is really for normal to dry types though. Sorry my oily, wrinkle free peeps!  

I hope you enjoyed this review and I will be going even more reviews soon

    I have oily skin, so this might bit work for me… but thanks for sharing your thoughts on it.
