The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream

Although I no longer want/expect high coverage from a foundation I still want a decent coverage so find that BB creams are usually too light for me. Nevertheless I took this All-in-one BB Cream from The Body Shop on holiday with me in the hope I could get some wear out of it.
This BB cream is relatively new and is a white cream which then transforms to suit your skin tone. It has capsules which are filled with pigments and burst when applied, when you look at the cream straight out of the tube it actually looks like an exfoliator but it actually applies smoothly. It is suppose to adapt to your skin tone but there are three shades to chose from light, medium and dark. I currently use medium and find it blends to match my skin tone quite well.
Although they sell it as a light coverage product I actually think the coverage is enough for the summer or for those who don't want a heavy coverage foundation. It leaves the skin an even colour all over and you may just need a little concealer but best of all it is a dewy and hydrating product perfect for anyone who has dry skin like me. It leaves my skin looking very healthy and feels really light to wear.

I think the best way to apply this product is using your fingers due to the beads which burst whilst applying. Unlike most BB creams I have tried this is a slightly thinner consistency and isn't sticky.
Although I really do love this BB cream and is one of the better ones I have tried I don't think I will be reaching for it too much as the weather gets colder. However if you like tinted moisturisers or a light/medium coverage all year round this is a fab product to try!

This retails for £12 from The Body Shop

  2. I tried this on in the store and it felt really nice. I'm not a huge fan of Body Shop makeup but I might give this a whirl.
    Thanks for the great review Sabrina :)

  4. What type of skin do you have? I have found that most bb creams are too oily for me (combination oily skin) and the only one that works in the Garnier bb cream for oily and combination skin. I would love to know if this works for oily combination skin too. I love the look of the packaging

  10. I'm actually quite scared to try out this bb cream lool i think the fact that its so pale and then is meant to adapt to your skin tone just seems so unlikely . .especially as my skin is so dark lool

    YES! You're very pretty, just smile, you look quite silly with the constant try hard pout.

  16. I agree with the fellow anons! You look very beautiful when you smile and the pout looks ridiculous (not just on you but on everyone).
