I have been away from blogging because I was very sick recently for a very long time and now I have started recovering. I wanted to get back to my work which I missed so much and there could be no better way to do it!
The Body Shop India organised an event on 26th Aug’14 called “JOIN THE FIGHT –To banish skin problem” and to witness the exclusive launch of miracle product that helps to tackle skin concern right way! I was invited to the event with a few more beauty bloggers! 🙂
About the Event
It has been a big suspense as to what product was getting launched that could help the skin get better! So when I walked in to the store, the surprise was over! It was the launch of their new “Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream!” I was like “WHAT!!!” I became super excited right away!! There was a boxing ring made decorated with boxing gloves all over and a huge cut out of the new BB Cream. There was a big poster featuring Jacqueline Fernandez saying “Don’t just hide it, FIGHT IT” New BB Cream with purifying Tea Tree.
I was walked around through the store and introduced with their complete range of products covering bath and body, skin care, perfumes and cosmetics. I was informed about how the products are made my the real ingredients and are all vegetarian!! That means there is no animal content in any of their products!! I was also informed that how The Body Shop gives employment to the workers who work on the ground level for tea tree and other important ingredients. They call it the “Community Fair Trade”.
More about “Community Fair Trade”
The “Community Fair Trade” organic tea tree oil is produced by the Kenya Organic Oil Farmers’ Association (KOOFA), consisting of over 550 individual smallholder farmers. The objective of this is to produce tea tree organically, thereby improving soil fertility and keep the water chemical free. Thus, providing them safe and clean drinking water. Apart from this they also get paid regular wages to support their food, school fees, medicines and fuel oil. This whole idea impressed me! If I buy any product to take care of my skin, I actually indirectly take care of that community!! Wow!! 😀
About the Product
The tea tree Flawless BB Cream claims that it will not only hide your blemishes but will also help heal your skin from inside, making it acne free. Tea tree oil is known for its anti-bacterial and healing properties since centuries. This goodness is incorporated in the BB Cream to make it just a little more than a regular BB Cream.
The BB Cream comes in three shades 01 – Light, 02 – Medium and 03 – Dark. The BB Cream is a lightweight cream which not only intends to perfect the complexion but also fights the look of the existing blemishes. They call it a complexion-perfecting dual action cream! Quite interesting!!
I got a demonstration of the BB Cream on my skin matching my skin tone and I did notice the instant mattifying effect!
The Body Shop also had a renowned aesthetic dermatologist Dr. Geetika Mittal Gupta to talk about the new product and answer all our beauty queries. She had a our skin tested by clicking some pictures under UV Light I believe and then discussed about the problem areas and their remedies.
Later we all were offered some really yumm refreshments and drinks!! There was also a small contest going on. We had to pose exactly like Jacqueline in the poster below wearing boxing gloves and get clicked. The person who was closest to Jacqueline in terms of pose and expressions would win. 😀 They gave me a copy of the picture form their Polaroid instant camera too!! 😀
Last but not the least at all, before leaving we were given a goodie bag that included a Boxing Glove, a full sized Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream of my shade and a full sized Tea Tree Cool and Creamy Face Wash. I am really excited to try the BB Cream and will share a review of it very soon!!
