How have you all been? I have been really busy with a lot of things going on in work and life! Anyways, I am back today with a review which was the first to do in my mind! If you all remember I recently posted about the “The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream” launch/preview and bloggers meet. That day onward I was trying the BB cream on different days and wanted to see how it performs and was very excited to review it! So here I am!! 🙂
About The Looks!
The BB cream comes in a green squeezy tube depicting the key ingredient “Tea Tree”. All the products from the tea tree collection have the same packaging, the difference being the container and its cap. The cap’s color is of the shade that the BB cream is. (See picture). I like the packaging, its sturdy and easy to use!
Price – INR 1095
Net Content – 40 ml (1.3 US FL OZ)
Ingredients – Not Listed. Focus has just been on the key ingredient “Tea Tree”. I wish the whole ingredient list was there. 🙁
My Experience with the BB Cream!
The very first time I used the BB Cream was during the launch/preview of the same. I was given a demonstration and my shade was “01”. I instantly felt that the formulation had a matte effect. It was a horribly humid day and we all were sweating like crazy even in the air conditioned store. But after the application of this product, I experienced less shine on my face. Its not completely sweat proof but still controls oil to some extent.
This BB Cream is meant to help with skin problems like blemishes by hiding it and also intends to heal it from inside making it acne free. The tube says “Suitable for Blemished Skin” and “Instantly spotless looking skin“.
The formula is very close to my Pond’s BB+ Cream which I really love, though the quality in terms of ingredients will definitely be different. The texture is very light and blends evenly and smoothly. It gives your skin light to medium coverage. If you have a spotless skin it will work awesome for you. If you have light spots or blemishes, it will work fine for you, as it will hide those and make the skin look better. However, if your skin has really dark blemishes and spots and acne, then this BB Cream wont be enough by itself and you would need a concealer to cover them up. But if you want a natural look for everyday, this BB Cream is a great option! I love how my skin looks after I use this!
This BB cream kept my face matte for a very long time! Which was great!! Though it might get washed away by heavy sweat and you would want to touch up again.
It lasts for good 4-5 hours or more, which is quite good!!
It did not irritate my skin and I had no break outs after using this. The smell is medicinal but not very strong, hardly noticeable.
I posted a selfie on my fb page “RougePouts” wearing the same. Its not a very clear picture but a better look is coming very soon. For now here’s that picture –
Here is another pic where I am wearing this BB Cream on the launch/preview of the product at The Body Shop store!
I really love this BB Cream! It works really well with my skin. It glides on the skin smoothly, giving it a beautiful matte and even finish!! My skin also started looking better, so its a beauty and skin care product in one tube!! Totally worth the money!!
That was all for today!!
I will be back with some more reviews very soon!!
Till then take care and have a lovely day!! XOXO
