Hey Girlies.. We all know how good the extra virgin olive oil to the body is, especially the skin and hair. Have you ever thought if this olive oil can help you out in clearing out skin or any form of skincare? Well.. I already used/using it for my skin. To clean up my makeup or to simply massage my skin with it. Every time I use it, my skin loves it. Anyway, let’s not get in there now.

I have the Body Shop’s Extra Virgin Mineral Liquid Foundation with me to share my experience with you guys  🙂

 My Take:

Out of all the available shade, the shade 308 – Rose Beige suited me perfectly. It is more like a thick liquid foundation which can be blended with fingers or a foundation brush. People with oily skin, may use a brush spray with your toner and blend in the foundation. I at times do that to avoid any oily look. I have acne prone skin and yes..it is oily/combination skin type. Using this foundation makes my skin glow. I mean, it gives a dewy finish to my skin which I like during the winter season. However, it makes my skin a bit oilier in the summer. It covers up pores and leaves a smooth look. It stays on for 3-4 hours and then you must use your compact to set it again to avoid greasy look. It didn’t break me out which I liked.
