REVIEW: THE BODYSHOP TEA TREE FLAWLESS BB CREAM


I hope you all are doing well. I was apprehensive about buying this product because I thought it would be as bad as the ones I had tried earlier. The only thing that caught my eye was its description. Yes, it is specifically formulated for blemished skin. Please keep reading if you're interested in learning more about this product.
What it claims:
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.

1)     Blemishes and imperfections are instantly covered

2)   Lightweight formula gives shine-free complexion

3)   3 shades blend seamlessly into all skin tones for natural-looking coverage

Packaging and color description:
The tube is of green color, and you can easily carry it in your bag as it is really small and travel friendly. They give you 40 ml in £8, which is a bit pricey but totally worth a try. Moreover, the bodyshop’s tea tree flawless bb cream comes in 3 different shades; I have 01 which is the lightest one. You can go for 02 if you're a little tanned or have medium skin tone. The 3rd one is the darkest shade and can be used for contouring as well.
My thoughts:
I fancy the idea of wearing bb creams as they are pretty light in weight. Yes, I do have a lot of imperfections, but bb creams are just so much better than everything else. It's really hard to find a holy grail nowadays since there are a lot of different products in the market, and it gets really hard for beauty lovers like us to pick one. I like to wear minimal makeup on my face as I am more into lip products. I have this strange perception that a bold pout can do wonders even if you have unveiled scars, zits or any other imperfections. We all are unique in our own different ways, so yes our thoughts cannot be similar. This bb cream sets into a matte finish, and it didn’t make my face shine like a greasy pan. The texture is extremely creamy and buttery, and I blend it with my fingers as it is the easiest way to blend a bb cream. The lasting power is not good as it stays on my face for only an hour or two.
However, this product is not for you if you have a lot of imperfections to hide since the coverage is pretty sheer. I do not mind using it with a bit of concealer since I prefer bb creams over foundations. It didn't clog my pores as it's really light in weight, and has tea tree oil in it which is beneficial for the ones who have acne. The bodyshop’s tea tree flawless bb cream smells like tea tree oil. The fragrance might be a little overpowering for the ones who are not into scented products. However, I do not mind having scents in my beauty products, and this one to be precise, is a bit refreshing.
You might like it if you're a skin freak like me. I always end up with a million zits on my face just because I love junk food. The body shop never lets me down, and this is the only reason of why I have purchased the entire tea tree range.


Pros:
  • Refreshing scent
