The Body Shop India Loose Face Powder: Hot or not?

 I know most of you would be looking forward to this review. Had I been you, I would have. Being an oil-mill in summers, I am keeping my eyes peeled on all kind of powders. And it paid off because I located The Body Shop Loose Powder in a sale.

To begin with, I would not normally spend the original price on a single loose powder.
I would rather buy a huge pot of Kryolan. I would spend that kind of money on books may be... or dine out. ( Yes, I love food!) Might start writing soon.

But, getting back again, the price is 14 grams for Rs 1150 INR ( approx). Since it's The Body Shop, I see no point of complaining.

My experience: The powder is finely milled. I mean, it extremely finely milled ; unless you are careful, you might have the powder flying around everywhere and it would kill me to imagine my expensive powder flying around in the air! I did not buy it for a game. Did I?

The Body Shop India Loose Face Powder to set foundation

I use a soft face brush. So far, I have used it only in extreme summer when even mud packs on the face would melt in sweat I think. :D I know, it's disgusting.

It gave me a very natural finish and the foundation/BB Cream remained in tact for some two hours after which my face started to get oily again. It makes my skin look smooth. Doesn't aggravate the pores and is completely blends out.


In short, it's just alright if you are paying the reduced price. But there is nothing exotic or magical about it.

I think my Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder performs way better.( Only if I could find an even better match).

If I find it on sale again only after finishing up this one, I might repurchase. Else, I would look for something else again.
