New The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation Review

I realised I had never tried any of The Body Shop foundations, and as they are doing a 40% off sale, I thought “Now is the chance”.
I chose their new Fresh Nude Foundation as it is semi-matte and claims to feel fresh and comfortable all day. I know I usually only stick to mattes, but I am trying to brance out a little and test out some semi-mattes and sometimes I like to have a dewy look.

The foundation comes in a glass bottle with a pump, making it really easy to get the right amount of product you need, and is hygenic which I love! (I really don’t like those bottles with no pumps. It is so messy!).
The formula at first felt a little too thick for me and I was worried it would be really hard to blend and get an even coverage. However after I applied the foundation to my face it blended really well and covered my acne and spots nicely without feeling too heavy.

As you can see, I suffer from redness and acne on my chin area at the moment. My skin is oily, and I often breakout around my nose and chin area.

After application, my acne and spots has been covered really nicely with no need for concealer! The shade I used: “Bora Bora” is the perfect shade for me, too.
It feels just as described, “semi-matte” but not too dewy for me, as I am already oily. I will use a powder on my T-zone to make sure that I don’t get extra oily, but I am really pleased with the end result.

If you have dry skin, or want a semi-matte  foundation, I really recommend The Body Shop’s Fresh Nude Foundation. It has 16 shades available, ranging from pale to dark and also contains SPF 15.
For £15 I think its great value for a high quality foundation from a high quality brand you can trust. The Body Shop has long been known for its high quality and beautiful products, and this foundation is no exception!
