Doesn't cake on my dry skin and helps my slightly oily t zone and doesn't budge all day. Can get messy easily.

I have oily/combination skin and apply this with a kabuki brush over a primer and foundation and it gives a clean, matte finish. Throughout the day i have to touch-up about once. Although, when i used this without a primer, as my skin is quite oily, it did get quite cakey by the end of the day. But it's really good value for money and doesn't break easily, which is important

Not cakey
These powders provide a medium to high coverage and I wear them alone or on top of my foundation. The texture is ultra light, they dont feel chalky but very soft and somehow creamy, probably because of the dymethicone and glycerine that they contain. They are ideal for all skin types and compared to other matte powders these ones from The Body Shop are suitable even for sensitive and dry skin.I have combo and sensitive skin and when I got these powders I was a bit sceptical of how good and natural they will look on top of my foundation and if they will dry out my skin, but they looked beautiful, natural and lasted a very long time without fading or caking. I am always looking to find really good powders and its been really difficult to find something that is affordable and wears beautiful on skin. When you have dry skin is really difficult to wear powder because it will only enhance the dullness and the flakiness of my skin and I dont want that, plus I absolutely hate the powdery look that adds some extra years on everyone's face.I love the formula.I love how they look over my foundation! I tested it with several types of foundation none was from The Body Shop and it looked beautiful and natural every single time. It wears for hours and only after 8 hours I could see some shine on my forehead, but not more than when I used other similar powders. Theyey dont change the color of my foundation which is nice. I just think they need to expand there shade range as no powder wouos uit darker skin as there all pretty light.

Matches well
Matched my skin tone well however didn't last very long. I had to reapply it within about 3.5 hrs. it doesn't make my skin dry up as some powders do

Light coverage
I really like this product as it is light on your skin and full coverage. It is inexpensive and lasts long. It doesn’t react with sensitive skin but may make your skin a bit oily.The packaging is very thin and easy to take off. The container is very sturdy and protective. I really like this product and recommend it.

This product is great for getting rid of shine and setting foundation, although I wouldn't recommend it for dry skin. It has a soft, silky texture and is applied very easily, but feels heavy and claggy. It often looks quite cakey, particularly on dry skin/acne as it set in the flakes on your skin.

My favourite everyday powder. I have dry skin, but this isn't drying, it leaves a nice satin finish. I don't know what the shade range is like, I just use translucent, which is lovely. I also haven't noticed any difference in how clear my complexion is, but it makes me feel better that I'm not necessarily making my skin worse my covering it in makeup aha. Staying power is good
