The BB craze seems to be here to stay, and The Body Shop has recently released their new Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream* ($15 CAD/40mL). This new BB Cream is formulated with tree tree oil to help control and heal blemishes, which sounds amazing to me! This formula is available in 3 shades, and I've been trying out the shade 01 Light.
- Blemishes and imperfections are instantly covered
- Lightweight formula gives shine-free complexion
- 3 shades blend seamlessly into all skin tones for natural-looking coverage" - The Body Shop
The Body Shop's Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream comes packaged in a small green plastic tube with a flip-open lid. This tube looks small, but it does hold more than the typical 30 mL foundations found on the market. This BB Cream has a heavy tea tree scent to it. Tea Tree is a scent that I used to absolutely hate, but now it doesn't bother me anymore. If you've never smelt tea tree before, I would recommend giving this a sniff in stores before purchasing.
I really like the idea of including tea tree oil into a BB cream, as the skin care benefits of tea tree oil are plentiful. I would have liked for the formula of this BB cream to be a bit thicker and to provide more coverage. If you're in the market for a new tinted moisturizer, then you might really enjoy this formula.
