This was a first for me. I believe that there are quite a few brands that have cushion foundations, but The Body Shop was definitely one of the first affordable brands to release one. So because this is new to me, I don’t have anything to compare it to, but I definitely have my opinions.
The Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation comes in five shades. I am in the shade “Wanaka Honey 04” which is the second last shade in the range, which is not ideal. There are relatively pale shades, but if your skin tone runs deeper, then this won’t be for you – sorry! I am also not the biggest fan of the cushion itself because it isn’t really a cushion at all, it’s more of a net covering the product inside. On most cushion foundations, you can flip the cushion when it starts running out and it sort of gives it new life. On this one, I find the product quite difficult to get onto my brush because I can’t really dig into it.
Now that the negatives are out the way, here are the things I love. This feels incredibly lightweight on my skin, and I always get compliments when I wear it. This also contains an SPF of 25 which is perfect for the warmer months. I like how compact this is, I like that it has a mirror, and I like that they’ve included beneficial skin care ingredients in the formula. This retails for R360.
