The Body Shop All In One BB Cream ~ #Review

When BB cream first came into the Canadian market I fell in love with them and used them ever since. Over the past year I had the chance to try many brands of BB cream and it was trial and error trying to find the perfect one for my face. When The Body Shop came out with their own version it has been selling like hot cakes.

A global bestseller (one sold every 27 seconds!), All-In-One BB Cream is a masterpiece of make-up and skincare combined. It comes in four universal shades with light to medium coverage that colour adjusts to your skintone, matching your complexion throughout the summer. The BB Cream is enriched with Community Fair Trade Marula Oil, providing non-clogging, 24-hour hydration and an even, smooth finish. We're also proud to announce that it just won the 2014 Product of the Year Canada award in the cosmetics category!  Pigment-filled capsules burst when applied to the skin, releasing the colour inside and adapting for a perfect match and a smooth, undetectable finish.

Sometime it is so hard to find the right shade for my face. Depending on some brands I could be darker or lighter. It is fortunate that BB cream comes in 3 or maybe 4 shades. Trying to find the perfect shade of foundation is the pits. I would spend so much time trying to find the shade that is perfect for me. It also depends which season I am shopping for because I tan easily so I am a shade darker a few months out of the year.

 Once again I was not too sure which tone to choose so I picked the shade I am mostly throughout the year. It was very pale white when it came out of the tube so I got a bit worry at first. Once I rubbed it into my face it started to match to the colour of my skin. This BB cream is light and has hardly any coverage but I noticed it tone down my redness and I think it is a great tinted moisturizer. I mostly used it as a base for my foundation which works amazing.

  1. Would definitely like to try this product - victim of age spots - concealers and foundation just not covering them up. Might have to eventually visit my dermatologist for laser touch ups - perhaps. Not a vanity issue here. Just cannot find the right cream to cover up the brown blotch on my right temple. I have tried everything - hopeful and determined. Thanks for the review of the product - moved me to purchase it and give it a whirl.

  16. Agreed! I was excited about bb creams when they first came out but even though I'm a light caramel, medium is still too light..so I gave up. Would love to try this! :)

  24. I think this is a great concept for those women that wear foundation. I, however, do not due to having loads of freckles. I find that foundation causes my freckles to just look like one big blotch. I do love Body Shop products though so it's nice that they are coming out with more products for the everyday woman.

  33. I love the Body Shop but I'm none too sure about this product. I'm not usually in favour of tinted moisturisers.
