I’ve been using The Body Shop Tea Tree BB cream for months now but wouldn’t say it’s the best BB cream I’ve come across. This is the lightest shade in 01 Light from the range and still had that strong smell you notice with all of The Body Shop Tea Tree collection; which I like.
Product Details: The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream in shade 01 Light
What interests me about this BB cream is the active community fair trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya, this gives off the strong antiseptic scent. In a way this makes me feel good as part of my makeup base as I know it’s helping my skin as well as covering up what blemishes and scarring I do have. The consistency, however, is very thick and like no other BB cream I’ve used before! This was a problem at first but it’s soon grown on me and easy enough to blend. I do find the consistency it doesn’t provide much coverage which is a slight let down. After application, I always go on to apply my foundation to complete my base because the BB cream isn’t the best product for wearing alone if you have problematic skin.
This shade is much lighter than I originally thought and could have got away with going for a shade darker to 02 Medium as you can see from the second photo in this post it’s much lighter compared to the finished look in the last photos after applying my foundation. The cream does sink in nicely and evens the skin out for a flawless base and overall for the price, it’s a great skincare/makeup product to have to hand for emergencies and for when my skins really bad. It does help keep oiliness at bay whilst preventing breakouts as I haven’t had anything drastic since I started using this. Overall it gives a lovely fresh smell and even if it’s not the best BB cream I’ve used I will still purchase again as it’s the only formula I’ve come across that includes the necessary ingredients to treat blemishes and prevent excess oil.
