The warmest season of the year is here and I thought it’s time for me to make some changes with my beauty routine with products that could withstand the summer heat.


I have just purchased a new tube of The Body Shop® Lip and Cheek stain last weekend to use for my upcoming outdoor activities (i.e. going to the beach, picnics) instead of my usual powder blushes. I have started using this product 7-8 summers ago and have become one of my favorite summer beauty products ever.

Its formula changed throughout the years but it can still deliver what it promised to do and that is to give a very natural looking blush. This one spreads smoothly and doesn’t dry easily which means you have more time to blend it evenly on your cheeks. I love the healthy, dewy effect it gives like I don’t wear any blush at all. The color is very buildable and can go very deep if you use a lot of the product. I use the doe foot applicator to dab the tint on my left index finger instead of dabbing it directly on moisturized cheeks to avoid contamination. This product also works great as a lip stain but make sure that you apply a lip balm after applying this to keep your lips moisturized. To be honest, I don’t really use this on my lips that much because I still prefer using lighter lip colors like nude or coral.

What I love the most about this product, and I guess I’m not alone here, is the lasting power. Reapplication is not necessary because it lasts all day.

Overall, The Body Shop Lip and Cheek stain is a great blush product. The fact that one can use it as a blusher and lip tint is brilliant so if you’re looking for a multi-tasking product, you should definitely get this. The 8ml tube lasts me about 3-4 months of regular use over the course of summer. The packaging is very travel friendly and easy to use too. I will never be without this for more summer seasons to come.
