The Body Shop | All-In-One BB Cream #2

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well and having a fabulous weekend so far! Before i get started into this post i would just like to add that the #CosmoBlogAwards have launched and after much deliberation i have decided to enter this year. So if you like and enjoy reading my blog and would like to nominate me for 'Best New Beauty Blog' I would really appreciate it and will love you forever haha. You can do so by clicking HERE :D Thank You!

So a few weeks ago i was very kindly sent some goodies from The Body Shop to try out and one of the products was this All-In-One BB Cream. I am a huge fan of BB Creams as i love wearing them on their own and also underneath foundation as a primer for a more flawless complexion. 

I'm a huge fan of The Body Shop in general, their body butters smell incredible and their lip balms are super yummy and moisturising. It's definitely a brand that i have grown up with and i love the fact that they are a cruelty free brand. A few of their face products that i religiously use are the Vitamin E Tinted Moisturiser and the All-In-One Face Base. 

The Body Shop state that this All-In-One BB Cream adapts to your skin tone and give a natural light to medium coverage on the skin. They also state it has a non-clogging formula which gives an even finish and 24-hour hydration. 


This formula itself is very similar to the L'Oreal Magique BB Cream where it initially comes out white like you can see in the swatch and then when blended out the little micro-beads in the formula burst and magically transform into a shade which will adapt to your skin tone. I have been using this BB Cream in a numerous of ways, i have enjoyed applying it with a Real Techniques Stippling brush and also simply applying it using my hands, one of the best beauty tools you can have :D just always make sure your hands are clean. The application was super easy, smooth and extremely blendable and the colour was a perfect match on my skin tone as the formula adapts to your perfect shade. 

I have a combination skin type and this product lasts all day on my skin with and without a primer underneath. I love using this over the L'Oreal Lumi Primer for an extra dewy glow to the skin. As you can see the packaging is a metallic plastic tube with a screw-top which makes it really easy to control how much product you are actually using so i personally feel a product like this will go a long way, especially as you need the smallest amount to cover your whole face. As the packaging is super compact and light weight it is extremely travel friendly. 

Unlike most BB Creams this product comes without Sun protection in the formula so you would have to apply that separately. I should pay more attention to sun protection when i apply my makeup so i have to say i am quite lazy and in most cases forget to apply it, thats why i do prefer a product where it is included as it's an all in one step. 

Also, this little beauty is available in 3 shades - 01, 02 and 03, however i kind of feel that 3 shades is not enough to match all skin tones. So i would suggest testing this out in store or asking for a sample to try out first to make sure you are matched to your right shade. 

Overall i am really enjoying using this product on a daily basis. As we have been experiencing some sunshine lately i have preferred wearing a lighter coverage formula on my skin like a BB Cream so i feel more refreshed than wearing a heavy coverage foundation. I feel that it leaves a very dewy and natural glow to my skin which i am loving for the summer months and is extremely long lasting. However, depending on how my skin is i find that this can be a little sheer on blemishes so a concealer will be needed to cover pesky areas.

I hope you enjoyed this post, i would love to know your thoughts on this product and whether you have tried it before. If you have any questions or requests please do not hesitate to contact me or leave me a comment below :D

Lots of Love

  1. this looks lovely! I'm a bit on the fence about BB creams as I can't always find one to suit my skintone or don't get enough coverage from them but this look really good. I recently tried to Ginvera BB Cream and loved that, it has SPF and Green Tea to protect the skin :) xx

  5. I'm intrigued, as every BB (and CC) cream I've tried so far has been pretty awful. I've pretty much given up on them, but I do like the Body Shop.

    1. I've tried a few different ones and they all havent been that great on me personally, but i'd have to say that this one and the L'Oreal Magique BB Cream are really lovely. Been using them everyday and it's great that they are reasonable too :D xx

  19. I really want to try this but I'm worried that it'll make my skin come up in dreaded spots! Does it strike you as a product that would clog your pores?

    Thanks for the advice :) x
