The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream

Every beauty brand seems to be bitten by the BB craze! Even I myself am. I used to be into liquid foundations, but then I discovered the skincare wonder that is the BB cream, and it has officially replaced my liquid foundation as my everyday makeup base. It's healthier for my skin but it has the same great coverage, so who wouldn't want that?

But then, most BB creams in the market are available only in light shades. Maybe because most of them originated from Korea where most ladies have fair skin. Wouldn't it be wonderful to find a BB cream that would be an exact match for your skin?

This recent beauty find will thrill you to no end. The Body Shop officially launches their newest product, the All-In-One BB Cream!

The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream (P1,195.00)

Finally, a BB that transforms!

Introducing the All-In-One BB Cream! The star of The Body Shop's All-In-One make-up range. A masterpiece of make-up and skincare, All-In-One BB Cream possesses a lightweight formula that provides 24-hour hydration and colour-adapts for a perfect match and a smooth, undetectable finish. It's make-up and skincare in one! 

This BB cream comes in a squeeze-tube packaging, which reminds me of toothpaste. Haha! I like it because it's sanitary and handy, because it's easy to dispense the product with this type of packaging.

It's also sealed, which is a big plus. But then once you remove the seal, you'd have to store this product upright to prevent the cap from getting messy.


It comes out white from the tube, with small micro-capsules that burst when it comes to contact with the skin, releasing the pigments inside.

It adjusts and blends into the skin like magic!

But even if I got the lightest shade (which is 01), it's still a shade darker for my skin. But it's workable, I can top it with a lighter shade of pressed powder, and it would even out.

This BB cream has a build-able light to medium coverage, and doesn't feel heavy on the skin. It works well in evening out the skintone, but not so much for very red acne marks and dark circles (as you'd need a separate concealer for that). Aside from having the color-adapt technology, it also comes in 3 shades: light, medium, and dark. This is very ideal for those with darker skin tones, since it won't make the skin look ashy (compared to too light BB creams). Since this BB cream has a 24-hour hydration claim, it would work better for those with dry to normal skin, because of its nourishing Vitamin E and marula oil content. Oily-skinned people (like me) can opt to top this off with a pressed powder (like the All-In-One Face Base) to make it last longer.

  1. Hi Helen! I've been curious about this ever since I passed by a poster of it. Is it worth the splurge? It looks kinda runny and I don't think that's a good sign.

    And were you in Glorietta last friday? I'm not sure but I think I saw you! Or maybe not hehe :)

    I have an ongoing giveaway!


    1. Hi Mica! It's an okay BB cream, and I would have appreciated it more if it came exactly in my shade and if it gave more oil-control (as this one is more on the moisturizing side). Provided that you have dry to normal skin, and the shades are an exact match for you, this one would be worth the splurge.

      Also, the new All In One makeup range is discounted until early September! P300 off for LYB members (so from P1,195.00 to P895.00), or P200 off for non-members.

      The one you saw in Glorietta probably just looked like me. I haven't been to Makati for the past few weeks. :P Hehehe!

  2. acck, too costly for a bb cream (at least for me). :(

    1. It's discounted though, P300 off for LYB members, and P200 off for non-members. :)

  3. nice review ^_^ I like to try it! :D

    1. Do try it out in-store to find your BB cream shade match! :)

  4. I would have loved this BB cream more if it has more oil control but it's pretty decent naman. :P

    1. I would have loved it more if it came in my shade. Haha! :)

  5. Gusto ko talaga i.try to kaso ang mahaaaal :/

    1. It's kinda pricey nga, but some of my friends love it because it matches their skintone. Lucky! :)
