so summer is here which usually means a lighter base product for a lot of us. Unfortunately I have been put off BB creams since the first few came onto the Irish market a couple of years ago. However this new Tea Tree version from The Body Shop has helped to restore my faith...
It is definitely the formulation of the traditional BB creams I am used to, being light to medium coverage and light weight. It almost has a tinted moisturiser feel about the product with a slightly higher coverage, as you can tell from the photograph above it is not to forgiving to any blemishes however a small about of concealer will do the trick. It smells amazing, whilst the tea tree helps to treat blemished skin. It is available in three shades, I obviously opted for 01 Light and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at the colour match. I didn’t notice any oxidation either, so if it did occur it was very slight. The light coverage might not make it popular with everyone but if you are a fan of BB creams and are looking for a light weight base product for the summer I would definitely recommend trying this one out especially as you get 40ml €13.50. The reason I like this one so much compared to others I've tried is that it didn't crumple or flake whether I had any products on underneath it or not. It also didn't sit on-top of the skin like an oily film which was my main bugbear to the old versions, it felt like it was treating my skin and left it feeling smooth and soft.
Have you tried any great summer friendly products recently?
