BB Cream -The Body Shop - Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

Despite a lot of negative reviews, I personally LOVE this bb cream. The Light shade is actually a pretty close match to my skin tone.

The product is somewhat low-medium coverage. Personally, I like lighter coverage bb creams/foundations and I just double up with concealer, but I can see how this can be frustrating if you like higher coverage.

My favorite part has been the product's positive impact on my acne. I have dry skin and typically have some acne breakouts. Besides hormonal/diet-related acne, I have noticed that my acne has decreased, particularly on my forehead, and I'm pretty sure it's because of the tea tree oil in this product.

I saw other reviews mentioned that the product didn't last long. For me, I think the product has good longevity. As I said, I have dryer skin, so that may not be the case for oily skin.

Foundations -The Body Shop - Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation

I was running out my old foundation, Revlon Colorstay Creme Makeup. My skin is very oily and sometimes I have acne here and there, so I was hooked by this product. This foundation promised a matte skin with tea tree oil to treat the skin. It sounds really appealing.
I bought it at The Body Shop official store. The lady at the counter chose shade Japanese Maple. I thought it was too dark for my skin, but she and my friends insisted that it suited me. Then I tried it a bit on my face. It blended well, so I thought it was fine.

At first I tried applying it without primer, and it sunk into my pores, it was horrible! I quickly wash my face and started over using primer.

So what is my opinion?
Well, honestly, I'm disappointed! Even after using primer and loose powder, and even setting spray, it doesn't keep my face matte, even for a mere 2 hours! After 1 hour, my t-zone becomes oily and I have to blot it. I usually only need to blot after around 4 hours when I used my previous foundation.
On the bright side, it doesn't cause breakout. I found it helps treating my acne skin. It also feels lightweight and I can blend it easily using fingers.

Lastly, the other problem is... I found this foundation oxidizing. I was looking at myself accidentaly and, oh my god, my face looked darker than my neck! It was fine in the morning but after three hours, it was horrible!

If you have combination skin, or acne prone skin, and are looking for a lightweight foundation, you can try this one. But if you are oily, I'm not sure.

I really like this powder. I apply it dry with a makeup sponge and it provides good coverage quickly. I have normal/dry skin and it doesn't leave my skin dry or flaky. my only complaint is that after a while it can settle in my pores and lines but it's not too noticeable. also, they have a pretty good range of shades.

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Almond Body Butter [DISCONTINUED]

Is this really discontinued?? I just got a new tub in September so hopefully not!

This smells divine. Really, really yummy. Not quite marzipan like, just a really rich, sweet, nutty and buttery scent. Moisturizes quite well too and leaves you super soft. What's not to like? I would repurchase for sure.

Great squeezy tube, quite a thick formula. Not many shades but found 34 pretty much matched me (EL Tawny) Its cost £10. It is light weight on the skin, It is matte but not powdery or dry looking on me. It covers great, I didnt need concealer afterwards and even used it under my eyes and it it didn't crease. It didnt settle in lines or wrinkles and it did a great job of keeping shine at bay, not completely but the shine that did come through was more of a healthy glow than an oily look. It lasted all day. It didnt break me out. It looks airbrush and flawless and I just felt nice wearing it. IMO it was everything it claims to be.

Love this foundation. Have very very dry skin and this makes my skin look glowing and healthy! It can wear off throughout the day as with most foundations but I'm sure a setting powder/spray could help with it. Probably the best foundation I've tried for my skin type. Looks best applied with a damp sponge! Highly recommend for those with dry skin.

I love this product, it's magical, really! I apply it to myself, my mother and even my grandmother, so it goes for 3 generations! The skin feels immediately soft and brighter. The package is good to take little doses, so you don't waste too much product. It's not too expensive, so I'll definitely buy it again once it runs out.

Cleansers -The Body Shop - Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

This cleanser has a very nice smell, is very effective at taking all the makeup off, even the eyes, but it made me break out like crazy: I never had cystic acne in my life and with this I had terrible huge painful bumps under the skin that took ages to heal (and it took me a lot of time to understand that the cleanser was the reason as my skin didn't break out overnight but acne appeared and got worse progressively)

Love this. Really gentle and effective cleanser. I massage this on my face for 2 minutes every morning before rinsing off in the shower - skin feels clean and soft afterwards. Also great consistency for a longer facial massage. Nice smell and doesn’t cause irritation. Very reasonably priced too

I had been using this toner for 6 months and I think I should write a review on this although they changed the packaging of this product. I have an acne-prone, oily-combination skin who has a lot of redness around the jawline, T-zone area. This toner did not do anything to help my skin (except for little bit of extra cleansing) but caused redness on my already sensitive skin. The fifth ingredient on the list is Algae extract which is ranked at 5 comedogenic rating (the highest scale).
