Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream: The Body Shop

I just received this Press Release which sees The Body Shop introduce a new BB Cream with purifying Tea Tree. Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream is a new BB Cream which comes in three shades: 01 Light, 02 Medium, 03 Dark and the RRP is €13.50 for a 40ml tube. 

If you don't already know BB (Blemish Balm) Creams have been on the market for a couple of years now and are designed to hide blemishes while also providing nutrients or "good stuff" for your skin, e.g. moisture, SPF. They have a pigment and many people wear them daily as a substitute to their foundation, especially during the summer months as they tend to be lighter in consistency. But this product from The Body Shop is all of the above, and more!It's a BB cream, which hides blemishes or spots, provides coverage on your skin and also contains Tea Tree-something that is well known for treating spots (it's an active ingredient in many spot treatments). 

So not only can you use this daily, in place of your foundation for coverage, you can be rested that it's going to fight against your spots! The Body Shop says you'll be left with "instantly spotless-looking skin with natural-looking shine-free coverage." This comes in 3 shades and as you can see from the images, shade 01 and 03 are quite extreme but I think a mixture of 01 and/or 02 will suit most Irish skin-tones. So I recommend going into your nearest Body Shop (check on their website to find your nearest store) and testing the 3 shades on your jawline to see which shade suits you best!

These BB Creams are part of The Body Shop's Tea Tree Collection, which contain products such as a Cleanser/Exfoliator, Toner, Moisturier, Primer and Natural Tea Tree Oil, so if this product works for you be sure to check out the rest of their range. Or if you're interested in a solution to breakouts or any spots, check out this affordable range from The Body Shop.

I think the consistencies of these BB creams are great! They are nice and light, ideal for daily wear especially during the warmer months! I wouldn't be too fond of the smell of them though. They do have quite a Tea-Tree scent (as you would expect) but it's not a scent I like too much, that's my only critique. But I would recommend checking them out next time you're shopping and see what you think. I'd imagine the scent would wear away after you apply it, and I'm sure it's worth it if your blemishes or spots are reduced!

Let me know if you try it and what you think! Leave a comment or send me a tweet! If you don'l already know my contact details are as follows-
