My experience with this product:

Packaging:

Let's start with the packaging. The Body Shop Moisture Foundation comes in the very chic looking plastic, silver and see through bottle with a pump dispenser. The Body Shop logo is engraved on the top of the cap in black color.
Overall, the packaging is light weight, easy to carry along and very hygienic. A thumbs up!!

Coverage:

The foundation comes in the category of sheer coverage liquid foundation range. But the coverage can be build up from sheer to light by layering more.
I personally love this foundation for its sheer coverage and healthy glow it gives to the skin. But if you are someone, looking for a medium to heavy coverage foundation, this definitely is not for you.

Finish:

The kind of finish this foundation delivers, i would say is natural semi satin like. It is light weight, easy blendable foundation, gives your skin beautiful illuminating glow that makes your complexion look overall healthy looking.

Color & Texture:

Now coming to the shade 3, this shade is warm/yellow undertone based shade which'll be a good match for NC25 skintone in MAC. Now my Shade in MAC is NC30, so basically i got this in wrong shade :p thanks to the S.A their and the yellow lighting in the counter hehe.
But still i don't see any problem in using this, what i do is i like to mix it with my MUFE Face & Body foundation. Sometimes i just take a tiny droplet of the foundation and blend it really well that way also it works okay for me as the coverage is sheer.

The texture is really smooth and light but not runny. It is easily blendable and looks very natural on the skin.
I have a dry skin type and this foundation delivers a beautiful silky yet natural finish that gives skin a healthy glow. I would recommend this foundation to dry and normal skin types. I think because of finish, the combination and oily skin types may want to skip on this because it illuminates the skin which these skin types may not want for obvious reasons.

Fragrance:

It has a weird paint like smell that reminds me of Revlon Colorstay foundation smell. I don't like the fragrance at all but the good thing is goes off after sometime.

Lasting Stay:

Now this is the most important point to a judge a foundation, its longevity right? On my dry skin this foundation easily last for about 7-8 hour(on wearing primer underneath) without any need of touch up otherwise also i like to wear this foundation alone without any powder over it. It does not transfer, does not rubs off or fades for a good 8 hour which is an interesting thing coming from a sheer coverage foundation. I have to say i totally love it!

Here is how it looks on me:
