The Body Shop Pressed Face Powder Review

The Body Shop Pressed Face Powder

the body shop pressed face powder
Hey Beauties, My skin type always kept changing depending on the weather. During the summers it would become super oily and in the winters super dry and in the rains a mixture of the two, that is combination, thus I have always use compacts in most of the seasons except the winters. This product is one thing I cannot do without I really like it.The shade I am reviewing in 06 which is the last shade available and I have a wheatish skin tone so dusky women might find this last shade quite unsatisfying. I used it on daily basis atleast once a day and have been using it for 4-5 months now and it is still not over yet. Whenever I use this powder it absorbs the shine and oiliness of the face giving me a matt look as its desired. Its texture is very smooth and does not cake up and does not settle in facial lines, so it really makes me happy!

Price: 795/- rupees
