Foundations -The Body Shop -Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation

on 12/17/2017 8:53:00 AM


I didn't like this product though I had so many high expectations for it... It was highly advertised when it first launched. I have to say the price was relatively cheap for the standard 1 fl. oz compared to many other drugstore brands. It isn't as thick as some may say. You'd expect a clay foundation to be thick but compared to others like the elf acne foundation, it is much runnier. I found that it looked SUPER matte I don't understand why many didn't find it looked that way after it dried down. Made me look like I had powdered foundation on top of normal foundation. I'd put a tiny dab and spread with my fingers and yet I'd look super cakey and really made it look like I was wearing a thick layer of foundation as even my friends pointed out. The colour was rather ashy though it did match me and when I started getting oily, the foundation would break out around those areas or rub off making my once nonexistent pores look HUGE and the foundation clumpy as heck around the oily areas. Ended up selling it off as there was no way I could ever hope to finish it. I did get some spots a well but I can't blame this product since I sometimes get new acne randomly but no major breakouts, which is a plus for those with highly reactive skin like mine. Product smells nice, a very, very faint tea tree and earthy smell but fortunately nothing harsh. All in all, sometimes you have to try it out as everyone's skin looks and reacts differently.

Primer/ Corrector -The Body Shop -All-In-One Instablur 5-Action Perfector


My T zone is oily and some parts peeve me with their shining no matter what foundation I’m wearing. I bought this primer by accident and testing thought it looked the most matte I’d ever seen. Well, it works just the way I want. I apply in onto my T zone, and it’s matte absolutely for 10 hours.

Cleansers -The Body Shop -Vitamin C Cleansing Face Polish

on 12/16/2017 11:19:00 AM


I SWEAR BY THIS!!!! Honestly my favorite daily cleanser. I know it’s meant to be a scrub but it doesn’t even feel like one and unlike many scrubs it never makes my skin feel tight or irritated.
No joke this makes my skin looks so bright and smooth and this even made my acne scars fade away.
Although it is expensive I believe you’re getting every penny’s worth!

Foundations -The Body Shop -All-In-One Face Base

Really good powder foundation giving a soft-matte almost velvety finish. On days when I’m in a rush I can always count on this to give me a quick glam up. However it does seem to fade after a while and settle into fine lines- but most powder foundations seem to do that anyway.

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -White Musk Extra Rich Body Cream

on 12/14/2017 3:32:00 AM

White Musk is something of an anomaly in that it's one of the only TBS scents I can even stand, let alone enjoy... do not speak to me of their Moringa scent, nor their Moroccan Rose, for they are the bringers of migraine and nausea and all other sorts of bad things. To be quite frank, I'm not a fan of the White Musk EdT either, as it smells a bit metallic and thin to me. But I do really enjoy the way the body products in the line smell. (And I may yet enjoy the perfume oil, I've just never smelled it before.)

I enjoy perfume but don't find much occasion to wear it, especially for work. Body lotions are a good way to enjoy scents without suffocating everyone else who uses the elevator at work, and also to make it more fun to moisturize. It's nice and rich and moisturizing enough for the body (and soothing when the weather is dry), but with a smooth powdery (almost silky) finish, not greasy or sticky like body lotions can be. It's an elegant finish, and the scent makes me feel elegant too.

This review is for the Smooth Satin Body Lotion which seems to have been discontinued, but I couldn't find it anywhere else on MUA to review. I THINK the regular body lotion that they have now might be the same thing, but not having tried it myself, I can't say for sure. I also liked the subtle lavender iridescence of the bottle they used for the Smooth Satin version, and don't know if they kept it for the current version.
