This foundation is probably 2-3 shades too dark for me (although it may not seem like it in photos) but I really quite liked the formula! It gave me nice medium coverage which covered my light acne scars, hyper pigmentation, pores and redness beautifully. It was quick and easy to apply, and didn't look cakey or flakey!

Would I Purchase This Product?
No. This foundation is definitely warm/yellow toned, but even though I liked the coverage and formula - it's just way too dark for me to wear outside, which is such a pity! If The Body Shop released a lighter shade that was suitable for my skintone I would definitely be buying it! This is a similar colour to MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, and if you are interested in seeing a comparison of the swatches - head over to my Sunday Swatches - Foundation post to check out all of my foundations!

If you princesses are interested in trying this product out, head into your nearest Body Shop and pick up a tester pot!


  1. The body shop does do this foundation in a lighter shade 01. I originally bought 02 but i found it oxidized and went quite orange on me, so I returned it for 01 which is really really pale and slightly neutral/yellow toned :)

    1. Hmm yeah I did try the 01 shade - but it was actually darker for me! Perhaps the tester was getting old! I'll go back in and have another look though! ;) Thanks for letting me know!
