Review: The Body Shop All In One Face Base

The Body Shop All In One Face Base3

During my recent trip to The Body Shop, the sales associate recommended that I try out this powder/foundation. She told me that this would be perfect for my oily skin because it leaves a matte finish. I was a bit hesitant to purchase a powder foundation because they tend to make me look cakey but I decided to try this out.

The Body Shop All In One Face Base is said to be “A foundation and powder in one neat compact. Use dry for a light matte finish or wet for high coverage. Perfect for on-the-go touch-ups. Matte finish. Velvety feel. No added fragrance. Includes sponge and mirror. Dermatologically tested.”

The packaging of this powder is a bit bulky and looks sort of like a mini UFO. It comes with a full mirror and sponge applicator, however, I prefer to use a fluffy powder brush instead. I noticed that after picking up some of this powder with my brush it left the container very powdery, which was a bit annoying. All of the shades looked to be too dark or too pink for me, but I was matched to Shade 4. I am very impressed by this product! The color matched me perfectly and it felt so light and smooth on my face. This gives such the perfect amount of coverage, however, it looks completely natural! I haven’t used this product wet because I feel like it would feel really gross on my skin, but using this dry works wonderfully. I mostly use this as a setting powder even though I have said that I much prefer a translucent powder, but this just looks so beautiful on the skin.

This also works very well at controlling oil. This lasted about 5 or 6 hours before I noticed my nose, forehead, and cheeks getting shiny. After blotting away excess oil, reapplying this powder did not make me look cakey or even like I had any powder on my skin. I really really love this product! This can be used very lightly for sheer coverage or used more heavily for a medium coverage. This foundation is very buildable and does not leave me looking powdery at all. I highly recommend this product!
