I’m a huge fan of Body Shop products so naturally when I saw The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream I just had to try it. After my sister told me that she used this BB Cream and said that it was nice, I just went for it.
This BB Cream claims to ‘Adapt to skin tone, Light to Medium coverage, even finish, 24 hour hydration and Non-clogging’
The BB Cream comes in three different shades 01 Lighter Skin Tones, 02 Medium Skin Tones and 03 Darker Skin Tones. I have 03 Darker Skin Tones.
Initially the cream is white, not what you expect when first using it but as claimed it does colour adapt and as you can see from the swatches that as you rub it in the cream adapts to you skin tone. When I used it on my face it really did colour adapt to my skin tone. I was amazed. It was a perfect match.
The coverage is good but if you have a few blemishes you will probably need to conceal as well. This BB cream would be better suited for those that barely need coverage or a ‘good skin’ day. As you can see from the swatch the finish is very dewy and gives a lovely glow.
I found this BB Cream to be extremely moisturizing; I have oily/combination skin so throughout the day my skin became incredibly oily and almost slippery to the touch. It wasn’t a nice feeling at all. To be honest I only used this BB cream for two days and on the last day of using it, I just found it far too hydrating for my combination skin and through it to the bottom of makeup bag.
This BB Cream costs a whopping £12 for 25ml – I thought this was way too much for a ‘Tinted Cream’. However for a Body Shop product I guess it was expected.
I really wanted to love this BB Cream, the colour and the coverage I found was very satisfactory for a ‘BB Cream’ but it wasn’t meant to be. I think it would be better suited for ladies with dry skin. I may give it a whirl again in the winter months when my skin gets dry from the bitter cold.
Have you tried Body Shop’s BB Cream? Or the Vitamin E Cool BB Cream?
