Bodyshop Matte Clay Foundation Review

Hi guys!

I’m back with another foundation review! This time I am talking about the Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation from The Bodyshop. This has been out a little while now but I’ve finally tried it, so I hope that you enjoy this review.

I bought this in the shade ‘014 Railay Beach’ which I think really works for my skin tone as I don’t really have pink or peach undertones and this shade is fairly neutral. Bodyshop have really worked on producing shades for different undertones although I don’t think that the range is very fast and I think that this needs to be expanded.

As for the foundation, the fact that it is matte is of course really good for oily skin. As I have combination skin I do find I have to moisturise well on the dry parts of my face before using this because otherwise it can stick to dry patches. As a result, I don’t think this would work for people with dry skin.

I have found that the staying power is pretty good, I put my makeup on around 7am and don’t get home until 6pm and by then it’s gone a little bit patchy and oxidised slightly but I don’t think it’s overly noticeable despite the foundation being on for 11 hours. I think using a setting spray could prolong the livity of the product.

I wouldn’t say that this foundation is full coverage, however I would say it’s medium and pretty buildable. I find it a little more difficult to blend than other foundations, probably due to the clay, but with a damp sponge blender (I use Real Techniques) it goes on a little easier.

I’d say that this foundation is quite lightweight considering that it contains clay which makes it prefect for everyday use. I also feel that this does make my skin look much clearer.

Overall I would buy this foundation again.

Thanks for reading!

    1. Yeah I really expected it to feel like I was putting on a face mask but it’s actually much more liquidy than I expected and I cannot feel it on my face it’s so weird! Thank you hun xx
