How To Use –
Squeeze BB cream onto fingertips and spread all over face until fully blended. Alternatively, dot gently onto emergency blemishes for on the spot coverage. TOP TIP: For best results, use our Tea Tree Pore Minimiser before applying BB Cream for spotless-looking skin with pores that look smaller and skin that appears smoother and more mattified! 
Packaging –
It comes in a green plastic tube with a flip open cap that is according to the colour of BB cream. Quite helpful J. The tube is nice, cute, small and travel friendly.

Consistency –
Quite runny. You need to be careful while opening that flip cap else you are going to spill it here and there like me ;). Just be careful. Since it is like a lotion, is easy to spread and you don’t need any sponge or brush for it. Applying it simply with fingers works the best.
Coverage –
This BB cream doesn’t provide much coverage. If you want to use this daily, just take out your concealer and powder to get the perfect finish. Those with clear skin can go for it all alone.
Shades Available –
It comes in three shades – 01, 02 and 03. 01 for fair but a bit more pale, 02 a bit dark but good for fair toned girls and 03 darkest among three.

My Experience so far –
This BB cream spreads and blends like magic. I don’t have any problem with tea tree fragrance so it works for me on that note too. I don’t have dark circles or any major blemishes. In fact, I don’t use a concealer :P.  So, its low coverage doesn’t bother me much for daily use. In fact, after using my MAC Select Pressed Powder, the finish becomes perfect. 
This bb cream comes in 3 shades and shade no. 2 works for me and Ritcha both while there is a good difference in our complexions. But, it works for both of us.  This bb cream sets on my oily face as a little dewy. While I prefer matt finish because being oily skinned, whatever I apply, the products turn dewy in ½ hr. A dewy finish means oil in ½ hr 😉
It stays on my face for max 2-3 hours but my oil glands turn active only ½ an hour after the application!! Though it doesn’t cause any breakouts or so but I like my products to be a little on matte finish side and oil controlling.
This BB cream is good and I know it will work for me in winters superbly. Since it doesn’t cause any breakouts, it is good for me. If we oilies try something in these humid summer months, most of the products start failing and they just get washed away due to sweat!!

The Body Shop Tea Tree BB Cream Review and Swatches

Pros –

  • Contains the goodness of tea tree.
  • Lightweight.
  • Well hydrating and moisturising.
  • Natural dewy finish.
  • Good enough for normal to dry skin.
  • Gives a sheer coverage, good enough for day time.
  • Doesn’t cause breakouts.
  • Good sturdy and travel friendly packaging.

Cons –

  • The price!!
  • Doesn’t stay long.
  • Despite Tea Tree being main ingredient, it doesn’t work too well for my oily skin. It gives a dewy finish which turns almost oily in ½ to 1 hour.
  • No SPF.

Overall Rating –
I would surely recommend it to those with normal/ dry skin. For oily skin beauties, I think this bb cream is a bit oily, but it causes no breakouts which is a plus. You can give it a try in winter months and lesser humid days!!

  15. I agree its a great product but because of the hot weather over here, sun defence is a must.

  16. I'm loving it 🙂 Though i wish they would have provided a better shade-scale… very limited shades 🙁 Nice review dear 🙂

  17. Great review! This looks great but I hate products without an SPF! I love tea tree oil though 🙂 I love your blog so I followed on Bloglovin' xxx

  18. That is my issue with BB cream, they don't offer much coverage and they make my oil gland active. I do love that some have SPF so that why I use it from time to time, but from reading your review, I didn't see this brand having SPF? Does it have it? Lovely review by the way.

  19. I have dry skin so this might work out really well for me however, shame about no SPF so I am not sure if I will be picking this up.

  20. I wish this was a bit mattifying too..i too have super oily skin charu 🙁

  21. I adore anything tea tree but my favorite is the shampoo. It makes my head feel cool and tingly 🙂 Great review dear! xoxo

  22. I have oily skin which gets super oily when slathered with non-mattifying creams 🙁 so I would be skipping this off ! anyhooo you have explained every pro and con very well, kudos

  23. BB Creams have limited shades, which at times can be difficult in finding your right shade. Nice review Charu.

  24. I have read a lot of reviews about this product and I'd like to try it!

  31. I'm such a big fan of BB cream, I totally have to sample this one now!


  32. ooo may need to try this x

  33. Ive tried other products from this line and it never really helped with acne. I really wanted to try this when I saw it in the store but I just remain sceptical haha. maybe tea tree just isnt good for my skin.

  34. since tea tree is a treatment for acne skin, its quite strange that this BB cream is a bit oily
    think i have to skip this one
