The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso UV Protector Review:

The Body Shop has some decent products and that fact keeps pulling me towards its store. The last time I visited The Body Shop store, I picked up a UV protector moisturizer for my skin. So, today I will be reviewing the same.

Product Description: 
Daily UVA/B protection.
Helps protect against sun damage and dark spots, as skin is hydrated, softened, and complexion appears more translucent and luminous. Infused with shiso, vitamin C, liquorice and Community Trade Aloe Vera. Use daily after whitening serum. If product gets in eyes, rinse with clean water.

Price & Quantity: INR 2295 for 50 ml.


Shelf Life: 3 years.

My Experience with The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso UV Protector:

Packaging: This moisturizer comes in a off white tube with a flip cap at the bottom. The packaging is nothing special or attractive, but travel friendly.

Texture & Smell: The moisturizer is a thick cream. Only a little amount can be spread all over the face nicely. It also blends in quickly. It does not make my skin greasy, if applied a correct amount, it gives a matte-ish look which is very preferable for me.
It does not smell bad. I mean, sure it does not have like some nice fragrance but it does not smell weird either. I guess, natural stuff!

My Take: I have minor allergenic skin, and any cream or lotion with SPF gives me bad allergy even with one time application and hit by direct sun light. Being a natural brand, I trusted The Body Shop and thought lets give it a try. But, it was a bad idea for me, when I wore it and went outing, it gave me allergies. Sad story!

Anyways, since then I am using this moisturizer as my CTM moisturizer. And, there is no complain about this one. Its been almost 3 months I am using this daily indoors, and no break out or rashes have been noticed further.

The thick consistency helps to give a nice coating of moisturizer on the skin. I have normal skin with T-zone oily, and it does not make my skin oily or dry anytime. It is described by the product that this is suitable for all skin type, and I quite agree. It provides moisture and hydration instantly.

I feel soft and smooth skin after using this moisturizer, no stickiness or oily feeling. It stays for a long time. I do not feel my skin dry or stretchy for longest time! I have been using this moisturizer since monsoon and now it is winter, I am still happy with it. But, I have doubt how much it will turn out in summer, as my T-zone gives me a hard time then.

The 50 ml tube is enough to survive for at least 5-6 months, as only a small amount is needed every time. I feel this is a quality moisturizer which gives proper nourishment and moisture to the skin. I wish I did not have allergy from SPF, then it would be my HG product, I guess. Still, I love this moisturizer as my night moisturizer, it provides me all that my skin needs.

The Good Points:

  • Natural Product.
  • SPF 30.
  • Gives a matte or non-greasy look.
  • Stays on forever!
  • Moisturizes and nourishes skin well.

The Not-so-Good Points:

  • Expensive.
  • Not allergy-tested.

My Rating: 3.7/5.

Do I Recommend The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso UV Protector?
Yes, unless you have allergy of SPF! It is a very nice moisturizer.

Would I Repurchase?
Probably no.
