The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB cream

As summer is just around the corner, I began my searches for summer foundations. When it's hot outside nobody wants to wear heavy foundation, so I am trying to find something suitable and light for my skin. Recently, I have seen so many posts about BB and CC creams being so good if you are only after a hint of color or a lot lighter version of foundation, so I wanted to try it out myself. I purchased Tea Tree Flawless BB cream from The Body Shop. Name says it all, tea tree is great for fighting against spots and packaging says it gives you flawless finish. Does it really? Now, I kind of have Love and Hate relationship with this product and I still can't decide if I like this cream or not. So I listed all pros and cons I have discovered:


Good lasting power. My make up lasted for good 8 hours or more
Blends easily
After few hours of wearing it, skin looks very natural and dewy.
Covers blemishes 
Affordable price
Travel friendly packaging


The smell. I hate how tea tree smells and this cream has a very strong fragrance of it.
Consistency. As a BB cream it's very thick.
Feels heavy on your skin
Light coverage
Only 3 colors available.The lightest shade is still slightly darker than my skin tone.

So as you can see it's kind of 50/50 at the moment. I think the biggest NO for me is the smell, if you are not a fan of tea tree scent then you might not like it. But I will still use it, as the smell goes away once applied on your skin. Skin does looks natural and flawless as promised. Let me know if you tried this BB cream yourself and what are your thoughts about it.
