The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

Just when I thought I was over BB creams.

See, for months I've been so loyal to my Ellana Loose Mineral Powder Foundation in Chai Tea Latte, which I've been using everyday for months (!). Being a beauty blogger, that means a lot since we get try out new makeup every so often.


When I got The Body Shop's newest Tea Tree BB Cream, I feel that I was going to like it, since it's literally makeup + skincare in one. It can cover pimples and treat it at the same time. The moment I tried it, I knew it was love.

About the product:




Perfect your complexion and fight the look of blemishes with our Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream. This dual action cream gives you flawless coverage whilst tackling the appearance of blemishes. Formulated with purifying Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya.
  • Blemishes and imperfections are instantly covered
  • Lightweight formula gives shine-free complexion

Ingredients:


Swatches:

Wearing The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

Pros: 
  • It has medium coverage.
  • It comes in 2 universal shades: 01 Light and 02 Fair.
  • The shade 01 is a perfect match for my skin.
  • It's easy to blend into the skin.
  • It covers my pores.
  • It decreases the appearance of redness.
  • It treats and covers blemishes at the same time.
  • Because it's able to treat blemishes, I feel that this can prevent new blemishes from forming as well. Love! ♥

Cons:
  • It has no SPF.

Neutral:
  • It comes with a strong tea tree scent, inherent in all products from The Body Shop's Tea Tree skincare range. So may dislike it, but I don't mind.
  • It has average oil control. It took 4 hours before my nose started to get shiny.

Price: P795.00 for 40ml
Available in all The Body Shop stores nationwide

Finally, a BB cream from The Body Shop that matched my skin tone and skin type perfectly! With this, I don't have the usual BB cream fears of getting a white cast or comedones (like whiteheads on my face) after several uses. The coverage is good, and when it's not hot outside, I can manage to wear this alone and skip the powder. The pros definitely outweighs the con here: I can always wear a SPF-spiked moisturizer underneath anyway. :D

Love,
Helen

  1. Oh, I love their Tea Tree Oil. How does this actually help with existing breakouts? I mean, do they dry up or something?

    1. The active ingredient tea tree oil in this BB cream has antibacterial properties to treat pimples - it works similarly as the Tea Tree Concealer that covers or minimizes zits, but both of them aren't not drying.

    1. Hi! I didn't breakout from this. You may need to double cleanse using a makeup remover and a facial wash to fully remove BB creams. :)

    1. Shade 1 is neutral for me. It isn't too yellow or pink.
