When I went to The Body Shop Christmas launch event last November, one of the assistants colour matched me after I said I was looking for a foundation that wouldn’t look dry on my skin.

Foundation has a tendency to really cling to my dry patches and make my skin look quite flakey if I’m not careful – and I’m way too irresponsible to be careful.

I was told this would help that and was a moisturising foundation.

The Body Shop Moisture Foundation Review

It’s got light to medium coverage, is scent-free and has SPF 15.

I’m now going to make you suffer with before and after photos.

You can see with my naked face, I have quite the uneven skin tone. I have scars on my chin that the camera doesn’t pick up so much, but you get the picture.

Now for the after photos. Wooo.

The Body Shop Moisture Foundation

This is just with the foundation and no powder or blusher.

As you can see, it does make my skin tone even but it is a light coverage. It doesn’t really cover and scars of blemishes and I think it does look a little chalky, which was what I was wanting to avoid.

This foundation is okay, but I’m not 100% sold on The Body Shop Moisture Foundation. I’ll happily use it until I’ve used it up but it’s not something I’ll bother with again. I might go for something that offers more coverage next time!

Any recommendations?

  1. Have never used make-up from the Body shop. Chalky foundation wouldn’t do it for me. Shame that. But, it does from the pictures look really lovely on you :)) xx

    1. Thanks – I think I prefer the foundation I was using prior to this though, it’s a pity because I had high hopes!

  2. Hey!

    My skin sometimes gets dry patches during winter. Its so annoying when foundations make it look even worse.. anyway what I do is mix a little bit of a moisturiser in ๐Ÿ™‚ it helps! Also i tried the kiko hydrating foundation..and didn’t have any problems!

  3. I have try skin and always stick to using liquid foundation , totally get what you mean about it clingy to dry patches I hate that too… Foundation looks really great on you..

    1. No I’ve not… but aaahhh, Lancome, I love it but it sounds expensive. Don’t tempt me! Foundation lasts so long though, it’s totally worth it, right?

  4. I had not use their makeup and it look soft, If you looking for soft and coverage Baremineral foundation and Naked. Have a great weekend doll

  5. Thank you so much for including before and after photos, I always feel a tiny sense of disappointment when I can’t see how it looks properly! I was actually thinking about buying this foundation so I thank you for this post, it was pretty helpful.

    (On a completely unrelated topic, I found your blog about an hour ago and I’ve been reading it non stop since, it’s incredibly great, well done.)

    1. Thanks – I like to include photos because there’s nothing worse than not seeing how it actually looks on, right?

  6. To be honest I’m not a huge fan of Body Shop products. Their foundation to me doesn’t have much coverage and it’s very dewy and shiny… I also bought a bottle of their glitter with this cute puff squeeze for the glitter and it doesn’t last long at all! Has a weird smell too.

    Regardless, I always go back there for their eyeshadows. Now them I do love x

  7. I haven’t been to The Body Shop in ages so I didn’t even realize that they offered foundation. It’s a shame that this one is chalky but at least you’ll know to avoid it next time.

  8. I so need to get my hands on this! I love sheer coverage and you sold me when you said it doesn’t cling to dry patches. That has always been the biggest problem for me when it comes to foundations. And don’t you be silly about your before picture, I think you look great WITHOUT any makeup and I seriously mean that. xx

  9. I use No7 foundation and it is pricey but it matches my skin really well and is creamy rather than chalky.

  10. Surprised to hear you didn’t like this foundation. I’ve heard such good things about it from others. I’ve wanted to try it but I’m not sure now. x

  11. It is always helpful to be colour matched otherwise it tends to be obvious you have foundation on. I have a BB cream from the body shop which I love and under my eyes I use wake me up by Rimmel Lucy x

  12. Shame it wasn’t so good for you, I find in general it’s really hard to find a good foundation. I’d recommend Bourjois Healthy Mix though! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. but I have to tell you there is a difference although you wrote you don’t see it. I would recomend you foundation by Revlon.

  14. Salut ! Comme jโ€™apprรฉcie vraiment ton blog je me suis permis de te taguer dans un de mes articles pour le Liebster Award ici :
    Viens y faire un tour, je serais curieuse de connaitre tes rรฉponses ! Bye bye ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I’m in love with all the products from Body Shop but i will never try out the foundation ! I like that it’s light so i will check it out the next time ^_^

  16. Dry skin is horrible to fin a foundation for, when I had acne and used Quinoderm it let me so flaky I just went foundation free. Even with acne ๐Ÿ™ Gemma and Miss Makeup Magpie has dry skin so maybe look through her blog for recommendations?

  17. I just can’t do liquid foundations, my oily skin is just too slick for it to stick! I always end up looking ridiculously shiny and wicked witch ‘I’m meeeeeelting’. Not a good look to be honest! But now I’m getting this crap weather induced dry patches so my regular powder foundation is failing massively!

    Foundation is a pain the ass. Good look in your quest a new one! I do like this Body Shop one on you, it has a light but natural coverage!

  18. ah, it sounds so good, shame it didn’t really work for you like you’d wanted it to. i’m the worst person in the world and don’t even use foundation, haha. xx

  19. I love Body Shop products. You look fabulous in the Moisture Foundation SPF 15. I have a lot to learn about skin care products and makeup. I’ll keep Body Shop in mind. I understand e.l.f. EyesLipsFace is coming out with some new products. I like that their products are vegan, cruelty free and Peta approved.
