Review: The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

12 September 2014

I am aware of how The Body Shop's Tea Tree line has a cult following already because of its skin-clearing properties. I myself can attest to how effective it is as I LOVE using my The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky-Clean Scrub, but now I have a new favorite from this range: The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream!

From The Body Shop's website:
Prone to blemishes, blackheads, and oily skin? Tea tree is nature's alternative to harsh ingredients, with community fair trade organic tea tree oil, clinically proven to give clearer skin from week one. The range also uses tamanu oil extract which is reputed to help generate new tissue and improve the healing process for skin. Say goodbye to shine and hello to clear skin!
The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream aims to perfect your complexion and fight the look of blemishes. Blemishes and imperfections are instantly covered and the lightweight formula gives shine-free complexion.

You can really say that it's makeup and skincare in one as it not only conceals, it also heals.

Except for when I have to go to events, I skip on the full makeup look (primer + foundation + setting powder) and just use this instead. I have used solely this together with the Burt's Bees Daisy White line and sunscreen for the past month and I swear my skin has never looked better!

Well, aside from my monthly zit-visitor of course, who appears at least a week before Aunt Flo comes. I also love the smell! It's therapeutic for me and reminds me of spas, in a good way.

It's very easy to use, too! After I put my Burt's Bees Daisy White Serum and sunscreen on my face, I just put a little of this BB Cream on my ring finger and spread it evenly. Voila, instant freshness that lasts the whole day!

Two Saturdays ago, this was my "no makeup but BB Creamed-face" before I went to my orthodontist to have a prodigal bracket glued on again:

Around five hours later on an especially hot and humid day, here is what I looked like:

Look Ma, my hair has gone from wet and manageable to big and poufy, but my face remained fresh-looking and shine-free!

Each 40mL tube costs P795 at The Body Shop branches nationwide. I will gladly repurchase when mine runs out! I suggest that you do, too. There are three shades available (mine is 02 - Medium) so just make sure to choose what's right for your skintone.

Have you tried using anything from The Body Shop Tea Tree range? What is your favorite?
