Body shop all in one bb cream
I was recently looking for some primer and one of my ports of call was the Body Shop where I did find a primer and also decided to try out this cream
This promises to adapt to your skin tone and give an undetectable finish. It also apparently offers 24 hour hydration and to be non clogging.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
I believe that this is basically a tinted moisturiser which comes in a small 25mltube with a screw on/off lid. What did surprise me was that when I squeezed out some of the product it was white. The lady in the shop demonstrated on my hand to show that whilst it does come out white, the pigment filled capsules do burst when applied to skin and change from a white colour to your skin tone.it did actually do this, so very clever.
The product has no discernible smell and is nice and creamy in consistency without being too thick. When I rub it on to hand to test it, it makes my skin feel instantly moisturised
USING THE PRODUCT...
The product should be dotted around the face and then blended in. I do tend to use a primer before application just because I always use a primer but find that it blends in easily using my fingertips and because it blends easily, I have no need to use a brush for blendning.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
The product is available in three shades; light medium and dark. I have the dark one which makes my skin look slightly more tanned than without and which will be great for the summer. However, my friend who has fairer skin tried the product and whilst her skin looked a bit sunkissed, it didn't look as dark, so it does do a grand job of adapting to the skin tone.
It is available from the Body Shop stores and also from their website. It costs £12 which seems pricey for a small tube of the stuff but a little bit really does go a long long way and it lasts for ages.
This is great for daytime use if like me you want your skin tone evened out but want a product which offers light but effective coverage. It leaves my skin feeling moisturised and for the lightness of the cream has great staying power- my skin tone stays looking even and smooth all day which is no mean feat.
I would recommend this for anyone looking for a great tinted moisturiser which won't leave you looking too made up
Thanks for reading
