• The Body Shop | Fresh Nude Foundation

    When it comes to everyday foundation there are 3 three things I look for (1) Affordability, (2) Ease of use and (3) Natural coverage.  It is very difficult to find a foundation that ticks all three boxes for me. A while ago, I picked up a bottle of The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation after hearing some good things about it and I loved it from day one. It ticks all the boxes for me and because I enjoy using it so much I decided to review it on my blog.

    I shared my first impression of this product on my Snapchat (gee_whiskers) and initially I was a bit apprehensive because this applies quite wet looking onto your skin - not oily or greasy but my skin looked too dewy to be natural. Luckily after about a minute of settling into the skin the finish looked  natural. The foundation is housed in a glass pump bottle which makes it easy to use and also adds a bit of luxury to your every morning routine. I like that I am able to dispense exactly the right amount of product needed. The previous foundations I had been using where in tubes, which made it a bit tough to get just the right amount out, especially when you are towards to the end of the product.

    I have dry skin and this foundation is meant to provide hydration so it isn't going to be the ideal foundation for those with oily skin types. I find that the finish on me is a good balance between being matte and dewy. My skin looks more even but the coverage is light enough that my light freckles can be seen. I am able to build up more coverage on days where I have a few bad spots that need a bit more coverage. Below is a photo of me with my quick, everyday makeup look. I don't use a primer, I simply apply the foundation over my moisturiser. I have not applied any filter so that you can see the true finish of the foundation.
    At R295 a bottle, this initially seemed quite steep however, after a few days of using this I found that the amount of product I use means this will last me a good few months. I use around one and a half pumps to two depending on how my skin is behaving. So the R295 is not bad at all especially considering that I can apply this with my fingers without much effort at all.

    1. As my first proper foundation (I've always been a BB Cream girl) I love it! I want my skin to look like my skin but just a bit better and this really does that for me. It evens out everything really nicely.

    2. It looks so natural on your skin! I love it. In winter I have dry skin, but in Summer this wouldn't work though :( Such a pity as I really wanted to try this foundation out.


      1. There are still a few months of cold weather left so go spoil yourself and try it out in summer to see how it works. :)

    3. all things being equal, we might want to hear your commendation subsequent to understanding it! buy s4 andarine

    4. Shopping being a fundamental one for everybody can be fun and simple for some, while some would think of it as an errand and bothering.
