The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

20140930_134659

I have a lot of base products, I have a bit of a thing for them and this is my latest purchase. My skin is quite oily and blemished although has improved as I have aged. BB creams are not something I use every day as I am yet to find a good colour match but this one in the lightest shade will suit me well for winter, I think. The colour is fairly neutral, not leaning too pink or yellow.

The first thing I noticed about this product is its strong tea tree scent. This doesn’t bother me as it is quite fresh and I don’t notice it during the day as I wear it. It has a lovely cool feeling when it is applied but I think if you have very sensitive skin then this may not be for you. I like the texture, it is a fairly thick cream and feels nourishing and has quite a nice glow. The coverage is good, most of my scars are covered and I only needed a little concealer. May favourite way to apply this is with my Ecotools bronzer brush.

To prevent to coverage looking flat I added some bronzer and blush and the whole look was very natural. I wore this for a whole day while I went out and the coverage lasted very well. I need to use powder and concealer so I used a little Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in light plus.

Overall I am very impressed with this BB cream, especially for the price. The full price is £8 and I used a discount code to get 40% off as part of a bigger order. I was not expecting it to last so well as other BB creams have needed touching up during the day in my experience. I will most likely repurchase this in the future.
