What we say:
As I have an oily skin it’s become second nature for me to apply powder after my foundation, as this is really the only way I manage to keep shine at bay. I bought this product from The Body Shop a couple of years ago, and I loved it so much that by now I have gone through quite a couple of them.
It’s extremely handy as it is a foundation and powder in one, meaning you get the coverage of a regular foundation but as it is matte, you don’t have to apply any powder over it. My skin matches shade 3 perfectly and I can say that the product lasts all day long without running or fading. I also find that my skin stays matte for a long time before a bit of shine starts to creep in. I’ve learnt not to layer this product though as more than one layer quickly looks thick and cakey, so when I need to, I use blotting tissues instead.
I think this foundation will work well for anyone who has oily or combination skin, but if your skin is dry you may want to use a hydrating liquid foundation instead, as the powdery texture of this product doesn’t work well with dry or flaky skin.

I don’t know about you but I get really tired of the whole make- up routine. So thought, let me buy this, at 1st I though err… R240 is a bit steep. Anyway I tested it on my entire face .
I could instantly see it adjust to my skin tone, it did not make me darker or lighter, gave me minimal coverage with that “I got the juice glow”. I loved it but I was still was not convinced so I went about my day walking around in the mall, even watched the Jungle Book.
Hours later and guess what ? I’m still glowing, no oil build up and no stains on my clothes, yes, Lord.
Two weeks later, I am still happy. I am a recovering from acne, if there is such a thing. No break outs or clogged pores. My spots aren’t that bad but need that bit of coverage. I look natural with good skin.
I love this, my skin feels and looks amazing !
I love wearing foundation but find that by mid-day my T-zone and nose are shiny (not ideal). I was looking for a powder that would eliminate the shine, last for most of the day and not make me look like I’d caked on powder and I can say that this powder ticked all my boxes!
I apply it with the Body Shop face brush as I find the sponge that comes with the product applies the powder too heavily for my liking.
This powder is great for keeping the shine at bay yet doesn’t cover up my natural freckles. I love it.
