Bought From: Free

Almost all BB Creams promise to do the same things: they promise to defy aging, whiten skin, protect you from the sun, give you moisture, but have you actually encountered a BB Cream that claims to fight zits? Maybe not! Well, you're about to meet one now through this post and it's The Body Shop's Flawless Tea Tree Oil BB Cream! :)
THE BODY SHOP TEA TREE FLAWLESS BB CREAM IN 02 IN DETAIL
This BB Cream is the last step in The Body Shop's Tea Tree skin care routine and is suitable for blemished skin as it fights acne- causing bacteria with Tea Tree extract that's ethically sourced from the sustainable Tea Tree farms in Kenya. It comes in two shades only, 01 for fair and light skin, and 02 for light and medium skin.
More about this face- soothing and zit- inhibiting product after the jump!
Product comes in a 40ml squeeze tube. Upon opening, I could literally smell the soothing scent of Tea Tree! If you dislike its fragrance, then Houston, we have a problem :p
02 is a medium beige shade with a neutral undertone. It yields a nice cooling effect, spreads out nicely, and has light to medium coverage. I noticed that it doesn't budge that easy when I tried rubbing off the product residue with a wet wipe from my hand, which may mean that it has good wear time.

Two layers of the BB Cream
The BB Cream has a sheer consistency so nope, it can't really conceal bumps protruding zits this is why I wear it with thick facial correctors and concealers-it's pretty good at giving you a more even- looking and brighter skin though! 02 fits my skin just fine and I find that it adjusts to my natural skin tone nicely. Payoff is semi- matte and it feels so light and soothing on the skin.
Staying power is okay: It takes me around 3 hours before I retouch my T-Zone and it fades for a wee bit after about 5 hours, which is pretty impressive for a BB Cream. I didn't break out from it and I also noticed that during my 1 week religious usage, most of my tiny face bumps did not evolve into full- grown zits (surprisingly, I got lucky with Tea Tree this time around), although I wouldn't recommend it as an acne treatment. It's good for oily and acne- prone skin because it has a non-clogging texture and it's a nice everyday BB Cream with decent coverage.
