The Body Shop ~ Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream in Dark shades
Today, seems like a good day for me to share some information on what I read about BB cream. The trend seems to have started from Korea in 1990’s but was founded some 50 years ago by a German Doctor for the sole purpose of covering scars. From my understanding BB cream was recommended by dermatologist to cover the scars and help heal the skin. But I guess it went saturated and so we have all the creams from A-E.
BB cream was one of the hottest trends in the beauty industry last year and it doesn’t seems to stop there. Clearly catching onto the alphabetization theme, then came CC cream, even DD cream and now EE cream which were just launched by Estee Lauder recently. That was the newest EE cream = Enlighten Eye effect skin tone corrector SPF30. So, all these creams have become popular simply because the demand was there.
I am also among the people who are using BB cream in order to get a quick fix on my face before putting up makeup.

Are you wondering what my favorite BB cream is? First of all, it’s important to analyse my skin tone type and preference on choosing my BB cream which might be different from yours. I have dry skin and so I will prefer to choose a dewy finish with natural coverage and light texture. I don’t want to feel like I’m wearing it at all.
Finding a right BB cream can be a challenge. It has to fit just right. I have tried many BB creams and finally I found my true love with this Tea Tree Flawless BB cream by The Body Shop. It hits all the criteria I mentioned and I love wearing it.
The formula has a darker tint but when I apply and blend them in, the color just don’t looked so dark on skin. Last time I check, my face and neck has the same color tone (photo below). Yay!!! True that it doesn’t have full coverage but I’m fine with it as long as it covers some of my uneven skin and that it gives a dewy finish.
The texture is a little bit more liquid-y than the Korean BB cream which are much thicker. As for this Tea Tree BB cream I can feel the cooling and relaxing effect from this amazing cream. Also the smells are just so wonderful.
As for the price, I paid $15.00 for it and with the special offer of Buy 3, Get 2 Free promotion at the Body Shop, it’s a good bargain.
So, overall I like this Flawless BB cream very much and will continue to wear it and planning to get a lighter shade for winter since my color tone changes and also to catch the promotion while it lasts.
What is your favorite BB cream you are wearing?
Thank you for taking the time to read.
