The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream | Review
Is it too far too say that this may be the best makeup product decision I have ever made?
Pale skin girls, this is definitely one for you. I cannot even begin to tell you how long I have been looking for a foundation/base that is actually light enough for my skin. Every product out there seems to either be too orange toned, too pink toned or simply too dark - yes, I'm talking even the palest of the shades. And I know that a lot of you fellow pale skin girls face this same goddamned problem. But I am telling you, this actually matches perfectly. We may be onto a winner here!
Don't fret if you have darker skin, it also comes in two other shades, 2 and 3, so there's one for everybody.
Can we also please address the fact that this is specifically made for oily and blemish prone skin? I absolutely adore tea tree oil. I keep it no secret on my blog that I have oily and spot prone skin. Putting tea tree oil on any blemishes that I may have, morning and night and is super effective (you can check out my post about using tea tree oil for blemishes here). So how could I say no to a product that is infused with the stuff? Instead of having that gross feeling that I'm slapping on a load of pore clogging, spot producing foundation on my face every morning, I actually feel like I am putting something on that is going to be beneficial for skin.
I was also pleasantly surprised with the coverage it gives. Although it is an extremely light product, which makes it perfect for the summer, may I add, it does cover my blemishes and pigmentation up enough that I feel comfortable leaving the house with only it on. Of course, you can add a dash of concealer if you feel the need to, and your spots will be completely hidden.
Being an oily skin girl means that powder is generally a necessity. If not, my make up will be tragically sliding down my face by lunch time. Even sooner in the summer heat. I have actually been venturing out with no powder on when I use this BB cream. It seems to be able to keep my oilyness at bay, allowing it to actually stay on my face. My skin also appears to be nice and dewy - something that before, I could only achieve by piling on a load of highlighter.
The Tea Tree BB Cream has been my savior this summer, and what a bargain for only £8! What are your thoughts to The Body Shop's newest addition to it's Tea Tree Range?
