Acne….oh…you know the word!!
Then, you must be knowing about Tea Tree….right 🙂
So, our much loved skin care brand – The Body Shop has come up with an amazing product – a BB Cream, that too containing the goodness of Tea Tree to fight off all those zits and acne, but in a good way, while making you look flawless. Could anything better happen!! No!!
What TBS says about Tea Tree BB Cream –
Perfect your complexion and fight the look of blemishes with our Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream. This dual action cream gives you flawless coverage whilst tackling the appearance of blemishes. Formulated with purifying Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya.
– Blemishes and imperfections are instantly covered
– Lightweight formula gives shine-free complexion
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!
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.
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.
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.
Rs. 1095/- for 40ml.
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!!
- Contains the goodness of tea tree.
- 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.
- 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!!
