The Body Shop Moisture Foundation SPF15

I haven't ventured back into The Body Shop much, not since those heady days when we all ran in as 13 year old's drenching ourselves in as much fragrance oils as we could from those cute dropper bottles - Remember Vanilla, Dewberry, Oceanus and White Musk anyone? I cannot imagine that there were many girls who didn't own at least one of them.

Well imagine my surprise that they are still being sold, so if you fancy some nostalgia they are priced from £6.50.

Having been lured back into the store by the lovely smell wafting through the precinct, I headed to the Make-Up section (of course!). I found something called Moisture Foundation SPF15 - it looked good and I liked the fact that it had a SPF, as I was looking at it the friendly assistant offered to put some into a tester pot for me to try at home. I feel this is a good sign as it means they are confident of the product.

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the Chanel Vitalumière then I don't think you can go wrong with this product. It went on very easily, was moisturising and gave light to medium coverage so you may need a concealer if you have slight blemishes.

It left a nice, smooth, dewy finish similar to the Vitalumière, perhaps the only thing that lets it down is that it doesn't last as long. I was pleasantly surprised and therefore this item has made its way into my make-up bag.

I would say that it is suitable for all skins except oily.

The Ingredients -

Marula Oil
Vitamin E

Available in 7 shades costing £12 for 30ml from The Body Shop stores or from


  1. Oooh, fantastic. I'm really glad you found this. In this age of austerity, I'm all up for alternatives! :-)

    On a scale of 1-10 (10 being Chanel) what would you give it in comparison?

  2. I definitely think it is worth it, I would give it an 8/10

  3. I think a visit to the BodyShop is called for! Thanks for that update x

  4. i used to use the channel one but it was becoming a bit too pricey for me, so i tried the bodyshop one and i am really really happy with it, easy to put on, doesnt feel heavy and looks great all day, I would definitly buy it again

  5. I used this sometimes for spring season, and it is great, I first bought it in london and many of my friends told me how amazing it looks like:)
