Review: The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

On many days all you want is a clean blemish free face which looks like it has no make up on. On such carefree days you need to put away your foundation and pick up something that is lighter yet conceals any pigmentation or marks on your face. This is where BB creams come in handy. I have previously used BB Creams from other brands and have loved the light weight texture. Today I am sharing with you a new BB Cream launched a few weeks back the The Body Shop.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream promises to not only conceal but also heal your skin at the same time. Lets first take a look at the packaging.

The Body Shop Tea Tree BB Cream comes in a cute chubby tube in green color. It has a flip cap that actually matches the color of the product inside. It is available in 3 shades, 01 is for fair skinned girls, 02 for medium skin (this is the one I have) and 03 for darker skin. If your skin is too dark then you might have trouble matching an exact shade but dotting shade 03 and blending it well should work. But to be sure of your shade I would still recommend that you get yourself color matched in the store.

The texture of the BB Cream is smooth, creamy but non-oily. After application it sort of goes matte. On extremely dry patches of skin I need to make sure my skin is well moisturized before I apply this BB Cream. It has a distinct tea tree fragrance which does not bother me at all. For extremely sensitive noses I would recommend applying tiny amounts at a time to sensitize your nose.

I apply this after toning my face. I dot it all over the face and then gently blend it with my fingers. Then I go over the areas with blemishes one more time - this time I dot the product on the blemish instead of blending in - this helps me get good coverage without packing a lot of product on my skin. And finally I use a face brush to blend it all out leaving my skin with an even finished appearance.

Without primer the BB cream lasts for about 4 hours on my skin (oily-combination) after which the blemishes and uneven skin tone starts showing. Since I am having a lot of breakouts these days, this has become my go-to product for daily use. I have had no breakouts when I use this and I am glad that this already contains tea tree to help heal the existing breakouts.

Price: Rs 1095 (40ml)

I would give this a 4/5 - I love the product but I do feel its on the costlier side. I think one tube should last me about 2 months of regular use. If you want to keep your skin looking fresh and also heal it at the same time I would really recommend trying this out. I don't think we have any other such product in the Indian market that can boast of these properties. The last product I reviewed which helped heal acne while giving coverage was the Neutrogena skin-clearing foundation (read HERE)
