Welcome to our 1st review 😊
As you would have gathered by the title of this blog post, today I will be reviewing “The Body Shop – Shade Adjusting Drops: Lightening.”
Now every individual living in the UK know how hard it is to maintain a tan because of the horrendous weather patterns. So when you come to realise that your £32.00 foundation is no longer the correct shade you feel like murdering someone. 😈
This happened to me several weeks ago and I was getting ready to go to a wedding. Luckily I had several months ago purchased another foundation (sorry makeup addict here) that was a tad to dark online and could not return it (I know I am an idiot for not going to get matched 😳) So to ensure I had not wasted my money I purchased these shade adjusting drops.
Let me tell you. A few weeks ago this product was a life saver because I had lost my tan and therefore was in desperate need of a lighter foundation. This stuff is legit GOLD. It needs to be in everyone’s makeup kit. I was able to successfully lighten the incriminating foundation.
It gets better trust me. Not only can you buy the Lightening drops, it is also available as Darkening drops aswell. So if you needed to darken your foundation you could. Not only can you do this but you could also darken a bit of your foundation and apply it as a contour. 😲😲
The product itself comes in a dropper bottle and a little goes a long way. There are 2 downsides. Firstly, I find the formula a but gunky but that may just be as a result of storage or not shaking the bottle properly. I am so lazy. 😜 Secondly, the bottle only contains 15mL and is priced at £10. So a tad dear, however it is a lifesaver and prevented me from buying another foundation.
Some people might say just use a lighter foundation to mix in with the darker one. But I find that the consistency changes. With this product, you would never know. It stays the same consistency as it did when it came out the bottle.
On a final note, I have not been paid to do this review and this is my true opinion of the product. I can honestly say that it has been life changing. So I will leave the link down below for you to explore and until next time. 😊
