I personally feel that it's the worst powder I ever used. Gave me clogged pores and it makes my face shines after a couple of hours. Worst of all, it oxidizies really badly.

I recently threw away most of my Body Shop stuff as it just doesn't keep. I had a compact of pressed powder but it looked so dry and cakey on my face I gave up. ITs quite difficult to match the colour well too. They do seem to have gone up a lot in price lately but the quality hasn't risen with it. I am also doubtful as to their animal testing policy which was read out on TV recently due to their takeover by L'oreal and it wasn't clear at all. I hope the quality improves now. I also hate the way you can't browse in peace in the stores anymore!

This stuff is a good subsitute for liquid foundation when my skin is on the clear side. I would not recomend this for very broken out or uneven skin, just for someone would neds to cover up slight discolorations. Overall this stuff is ok, it made me pale with so i had to use a bronzer over it. But it did feel good on my skin.

I am tentatively answering yes for "Would you buy this product again?" I like that this powder gives a bit more coverage than conventional translucent powders. This way, I can use this instead of foundation when I have a good skin day, and when I have a bad skin day, I can use this on top of my foundation for an extra kick of coverage. Unfortunately, it doesn't control shine for very long -- my nose will be matte only when I first apply this product, but will start to shine again after an hour. And I consider shine-control to be a pretty important part of a face powder, so I'm docking two lippies.
Also, the packaging for this powder sucks. Cheap, ugly, plastic. Thank god I can't use this as a shine-control powder, otherwise I would actually have to carry this ugly thing around during the day. Also, I threw away the puff that came with the powder and am using my own tools to apply this.

Have no idea what it did. It did absolutely nothing for my skin.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Black Eyes: Black
It's very reasonably priced, doesn't break me out, doesn't look makeuppy, and matches my skin tone almost exactly (I'm GGG Asian [various], got this in 06) - it isn't just the colour that I am. on days when I'm a bit patchy or sallow, it makes me the colour I should be. I like it. As far as powder goes, it's all right. I'll buy it again. Why not.

I bought this product at the airport, when I stepped off the plane into some overwhelming humidity.
The color isn't a great match, but it was an emergency purchase. I'll toss it before I ever use it up.
It is inexpensive and has a nice velvety finish that didnt cake. If you can find one that matches, its a nice cheap pressed powder.

I really like this powder! I have it in #2, and find it very similar to Chanels compact powder in Naturelle. Both leave a matte, relatively transparent finish, and last all day without drying my already dry skin out. The packaging looks cheap, however, and the lid broke off when I dropped it, so I took away one lippie for that. Edit: the cheap plastic packaging is so annoying that I will probably not repurchase

This stuff is okay...not the worst, but nothing to get excited about. One this that pissed me off is that there are hardly ANY colours available.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I am thrilled with this pressed powder. It leaves quite possibly the most flawless finish ever. I use it in Light, which is a perfect match for my super-light skin. As it only comes in three colors I've no idea how well it will match a range of skin tones, but for me it works out very well.
This powder doesn't provide much coverage- for that you'd need some sort of foundation first. I use a concealer first, then use the powder over it. I am so happy with the results. This is my regular powder now.

Tea tree version of this. The best powder I've come across. Sadly, they've stopped making this now.

I am commenting on the Tea Tree brand of pressed powder offered by The Body Shop. I considered this for years before buying it. I liked the idea of Tea Tree in a makeup (because Tea Tree is so beneficial, a natural antiseptic) but was put off by the very plain compact design. Then I tried it.
Love it! If you need coverage, like me, then you'll still need to use foundation. But as a mattifier over base, I find it quite wonderful. Easily does away with shine for touchups. Only 3 shades, but it's so translucent, you'll probably find a suitable one. I use Light.
In the AM, I apply this with a big brush; during the day I used the puff, included, for touchups.
Plastic compact is black with the green/red Tea Tree logo on top. Mirror inside, and a special compartment for the sponge-puff so that the mirror stays clean.
Worth the $12.

This powder is not bad but after applying the powder will oxidise which make my face look darker...I am DEFINITELY not buying this powder again.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I quite like this powder as it gives a matte & flawless feeling. However i only use it for touch-up during the day or night and not as a base. Once i actually used this powder before i go out & realized that i have a cakey, oily slick on my face after about 1/2 hour, but this doesn't happen if i only use it as a touch-up.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
it wasnt that bad of a product, but it came in only three shades! and it wasnt like it was three very transparent shades or anything they were like a normal pressed powder. anyways since i have oily skin i thought this would be great to keep the shine away. it didnt keep it away for more than an hour. also the color looked unnatural on me and it didnt melt into my skin like a good powder should. the only way it "melted" was when the oil on my face took over. the only thing i liked was the packaging that had a mirror and a little compartment for a make up sponge. but really, there has to be a better powder out there. not buying again.

I bought the 2-way cake without sunscreen. It cost me a pretty sum but the packaging was all sleek and glossy, so i thought what the hell.
BUT, the powder made me look oily and when it later oxidised, made me look darker than i really am. it was pretty smooth to apply, but when i did, i looked tired and hagged.
I gave it to my unsuspecting sis and went back to Maybelline. No more Body Shop for me!

First powder i ever bought, in hope of taming my oily skin. The powder is GORGEOUS, it's silky and has a pleasent smell. BUT// it lost major points in that it has a very short shelf life. It turns orangey and crumbles very soon. I didn't like the green compact but the mirror is retractable, which is cute.

I don't really use pressed powders that much because my skin doesn't seem to fit in. This one is rather heavy and doesn't stay on for long. Next time i'll invest in something expensive
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Decent packaging and a decent powder, but I found that the product wasn't as finely milled as other pressed powders i've tried, and didn't give as silky or refined a texture.

This pressed powder comes in eight shades, and provides slightly more coverage than average, with an ultra-matte finish. It can be applied with a damp sponge for even more coverage, which makes a great foundation-substitute for oily skin. It is an excellent oil-absorber, but I found it slightly coarse in texture compared to more expensive powders, and also it started to cake after a few hours. It comes in a nice mirrored compact, a little sturdier than some other recent Body Shop packaging. I prefer more expensive products, but this one is still pretty good for the price.
