The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream is something that I have been using for a long time, especially whenever I suffer from red and painful hormonal breakouts. When you have active acne on your face, you may not want to step out of the house with the redness showing but you would also not want to clog your pores with heavy makeup that will only make the situation worse. This BB cream is the perfect solution to the dilemma because it provides medium coverage while being light-weight and helps in shrinking the pimples because of the tea tree oil it contains.
I wear the shade 2 from the range which is the second darkest of the 3 shades available in India. This shade suits medium Indian skin tones pretty well and provides a decent coverage that will hide any redness or discoloration on the face. It has an almost matte finish on the skin and provides a smooth appearance to the face without settling in the creases or pores. I love the fact that the tea tree oil instantly cools the skin post-application, which is exactly what my skin needs when it’s suffering from an angry breakout. Its longevity is also decent and the cream lasts on my face for a good 6-8 hours with a setting powder on top.
Overall, I feel that this BB cream is an excellent alternative to a foundation for those who have acne prone skin and what a natural look with some coverage. Priced at INR 1095 for a travel-friendly tube that contains 40ml of the product, this BB cream is a little pricey but is honestly the only makeup product that I feel comfortable using when I have acne on my face. Do give it a shot if you want some coverage for your breakouts but want them to heal at the same time.
