The Body Shop All In One Face Base Reviews
Brand: The Body Shop
I use a small amount of this product almost daily over the Body shop's primer. Sometimes I experience small bumps under the skin (not cystic acne, just small white bumps) but that could be from the primer or just that I'm having one of those days. I have very sensitive skin. Over all I like this product a lot, quite pricy but worth it if you don't use lots of it.
So I have a slight sensitive skin and when I used this it was around the same time I started working at a coffee shop. I thought it was the food colouring (I'm allergic to red 40 and red 4) and used this foundation for 6 months. Turns out it was the foundation and my skin is healing again..
It was alright
I used to use this product a while back. It was good, not great though. I mainly stopped using it because the shade that was closest to my skin, still wasn't a very good match. I wanted to stick with it because of the generally natural ingredient, but it really didn't look convincing on my face.
The Body Shop Pressed Powder
Check out the review on my website: The Body Shop Pressed Powder on my website [link removed] I like to try on different cosmetics, this time I am reviewing about the Body Shop Pressed powder compact. This is the second compact pressed powder I am reviewing, first being the Maybelline Dream Matte powder. Actually this one, I got it for my mom and so I thought I should try it on too and post the review..:) Anyway, coming to the point without talking too much about myself but the Body shop Pressed powder. What the company claims? The Body Shop pressed powder gives ultra fine finish giving you a matte look and hence avoids the shine on your face. It can be used over the foundation as a finishing touch or directly onto the skin. My say on the product As the company promises, the Body Shop pressed powder is definitely ultra fine. It won't at all make you look too much layered up. The Body Shop pressed powder is so thin that you won't even realize that you are actually wearing it. It is very right that you can wear it over the foundation as well directly on the skin, however, I have a dry skin, so I felt that the direct application on the skin makes your skin over dry and gives you cakey look, though my mom has a combinational skin and she doesn't feel the way I, so I guess the Body shop pressed powder is not that apt for the dry skin beauties. I got the Body shop pressed powder in shade 04. It is available in 6 different shades so choose one according to your skin color. The texture of the Body Shop pressed powder is super fine, and it blends with the skin very easily(if you don't have dry skin), thus giving you ultra smooth finish as is claimed by the company. It comes in a black base round case with a mirror finish top, I personally didn't like the packaging much. It has mirror inside so as to use it anywhere any time. The body shop pressed powder is a little towards higher end. It comes at a price of Rs 1295. Highs: very handy mirror inside smooth texture blends easily can be used over foundation as well on skin good for combinational skin and oil skin beauties long lasting avoids the shine on face which you tend to get in summers available in 6 different shades Lows: Way to pricey not good for dry skin beauties as you might end up looking cakey. My say on it Overall the Body shop pressed powder is a nice buy for combinational and oily skin beauties. I would rate it as 3.5/5
Can be used as a blemish/eye concealer All over foundation, Mattifies shine, Long lasting, Doesn't have that glitter effect that some cosmetic powders can have Brings up dry patches I generally use Loreal Minerals foundation or Garnier's BB Cream. I change with the two depending on how I feel whether to wear liquid or powder. But I've always been using Bodyshop's All in One Compact Powder as a touch up concealer. Even when I'm not wearing full foundation outdoors. What I do, is use the tip of a cotton bud, rub it in the powder, and use it to conceal red spots and discolouration. I find it is also ideal to cover my dark circles under my eye. In the evening, if my skin looks a bit shiny whether wearing foundation or not, I use this powder to gently dab on around my face. This is also ideal for photo times to give that mattified look.
great consistency feels light but gives coverage not too expensive lasts a while make sure skin moisturised well first otherwise looks dry skin can look flaky I changed to this when I started the regimen as discovered other make-up wasn't non-comodogenic. I'll keep using this as it seems a great combination with the regimen. I use lightest shade and it covers well. I also use the body shop stick concealer which has zinc in it. i buy disposable sponges to use with it and change them every 2-3 days.
good coverage, doesn't make me break out, long wearing. Small amount of product in container, not a lot of shades to choose from. I actually bought this based on the one other review on this site. I was in desperate need of a new makeup that wouldn't look cakey or break me out. I like the idea of a compact powder foundation for a quicker, one-step foundation process. This foundation offers good, buildable coverage and is oil-absorbing. If you do have any dry areas of skin they will look even worse under this make-up, but if your skin is oily this is probably a good choice. Also, if you apply this too heavily then it will look pretty cakey but that goes without saying. Luckily one of the few colors (like 5-6 shades) this comes in matches my skin tone. Overall I like this product.
-covers acne, acne scars, and all other imperfections immediately -can be used with the sponge given for very full coverage (although not "cakey") or can be used with a make-up brush for a medium coverage -dries up excess oil -lasts all day until you wash it off -somewhat expensive -there isn't a lot of product in the container -not ideal for dry skin Not many people know this, but aside from using the sponge or the brush you can also use a wet sponge. With this you will get a slightly darker colour (perfect for if you have darkened during the summer) it goes on smoothly when wet (just make sure the sponge isn't too wet) and you'll have flawless skin all day. I love this product, I have been using it for years and it has not made me break out. If it does, you can return it.
