review: body shop moisture foundation

20 January 2010

I have been using Body Shop's Moisture Foundation ever since I started wearing makeup. I've quite sensitive, combination skin and so cheaper brands of makeup have never really worked for me, especially when it comes to foundation and concealer. Though in saying that I don't believe that Body Shop is an expensive brand. (This fuondation is £12 exactly) I buy shade 04 every 2-3 months, all throughout the year &no matter what season, it works for me.


There is so much in this tube and because I don't use a lot for the coverage I like it lasts a good amount of time.


As mentioned in earlier posts I have combination skin consisting of dry patches on my cheeks and forehead with an oily teazone and chin. Over the years I have found that this foundation caters for all of these areas without aggravating any existing problems. Although a moisture foundation it doesn't worsen my t-zone yet does have a positive effect on the dier parts of my face.


Body Shop say: "A lightweight moisturising, long-lasting liquid foundation, with SPF 15, that provides light to medium coverage with a flawless finish. Dermatologically tested. Contains Community Trade marula oil. Size: 30ml" -Agreed! :)


To sum it up.. I love this foundation beause I don't need to use a lot for a good coverage, it doesn't look shovelled onto my face, applying it with my fingers works perfectly and there is less waste as apposed to using a sponge or brush and the smell is completely bareable almost pleasant without being floral at all.
