The Body Shop Foundations Review (Loves & Hates)



Recently I did this haul on The Body Shop Sale and bought many products, amongst them were, of course , foundation. Although I am not a foundation person, nor I apply foundation on a daily (not even weekly) basis, yet I couldn't keep my hands on this offer.

This post I will be comparing 3 different foundation from The Body Shop that I have purchased, to give you further information on what suits you best.


First off the Extra Virgin Mineral Liquid foundation SPF 30
Liquid foundation. Available 10 shades available, all of which only suits those with extreme yellow undertones. Those its the most shade range of all, yet those with very light/pale skin, and those who has dark/ebony skin, won't find a shade that suits them best. The shade I got is 108, and I can tell its totally different than the 108 I got with the compact version. Its darker and yellower. However, the foundation is really nice. It has medium to full coverage, buildable, smoothe on my skin, didn't cause me breakouts, stayed intact for 10 hours on my skin and noticed a slight shine on my forehead by the end of the day (which is miraculous). Though it is stated it has a dewy finish, yet I didn't notice that at all. It has a nice, flawless finish, something between the two foundations I am mentioning below. It didn't dry my face, nor it flake on my ACNE prone areas (like my T-Zone). I have only two complains is why such a good foundation has a high SPF, I cannot by any means get photographed wearing this (as we all know SPF based foundations glares in flash photos causing you a white face). The other drawback is it oxidizes, which is something not nice with foundations to find your face color becoming different that your original tone in 15 minutes.  I believe it suits ALL skin types, except extremely oily skin 

Price: 180 L.E. 

Second: Extra Virgin Compact Cream foundation- SPF 15

Previously reviewed here. It is a Cream foundation in a compact contains pure minerals and cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil for an immaculate, matte finish. It has medium to high buildable coverage. High staying power with a great powdery  finish. don't think it suits my combination skin and wouldn't definitely suit oily skin either. It flaked on my T-zone, while on the rest of my normal, oil-free face it was perfect. I find it is purley created for normal to dry skin. 8 Shade available, yet not of a variety for those with cool tones- mostly suited neutral and yellow toned complexions.
Best if blended with a face expert brush by Real Techniques.

Price: 250 L.E.

Thirdly: The Body Shop moisture foundation SPF 15

I have previously reviewed here. To sum it up, light-medium coverage but this was an amazing. It sits well on my skin, not greasy at all! This one is great because it helps moisturize my dry area of my skin skin, and yet doesn't grease the oily parts. It leaves a dewy fresh finish on my skin.I'd recommend it most to people with dry - combination skin types. Its the best blendability and light weight of all three foundations. Best if blended with a buffing brush. 8 Shades available, which is not bad, and suits those with neutral undertones

Price: 170 L.E.
