Review: The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream 01

18. April 2013
Here is a review for the All-In-One BB cream from The Body Shop in color 01. They provide three shades for this BB cream. I tested them all on my hand and decided that the other two shades were to dark for me and I chose the lightest one. Luckily I didn’t order it online because then I would have chosen the medium shade…
Here is the description of this product from the official web page:
Our new All-In-One BB cream transforms from a white cream to suit your skin tone. Pigment-filled capsules burst when applied to the skin, releasing the colour inside. Just blend for a perfect match and an even, undetectable finish. It’s make-up and skincare in one.
  • Adapts to your skin tone
  • Light to medium coverage
  • Even finish
  • 24-hour hydration
  • Non-clogging
Full Ingredients: Aqua (Solvent/Diluent), Isohexadecane (Emollient/Solvent), Hydrogenated Polydecene (Skin Conditioning Agent), Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate (Skin Conditioning Agent/Emollient), Ethylhexyl Palmitate (Skin Conditioning Agent), Glycerin (Humectant), Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Hydrogenated Castor Oil (Emollient), Mica (Opacifier), Phenethyl Alcohol (Fragrance Ingredient), Magnesium Sulfate (Absorbent/Bulking Agent), Sodium Chloride (Viscosity Modifier), Glyceryl Caprylate (Skin Conditioning Agent), Tocopheryl Acetate (Antioxidant), Polyester-1 (Film Former), Silica Dimethyl Silylate (Binder/Viscosity Modifier), Triethoxycaprylylsilane (Binder), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Skin Conditioning Agent), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Glycine Soja Oil (Emollient/Skin Conditioner). [+/- CI 77891 (Colour), CI 77492 (Colour), CI 77491 (Colour), CI 77499 (Colour)]. 
Normally I use Asian BB creams and they always work a great deal for me. But I thought I could give western BB creams a second try (my first try was an instant fail, I bought the Dream Cream BB from Maybelline and it was so dark for me, my face was completely orange…I gave it to my sister because she is tanner than me) and since I love most of the products from The Body Shop why not?!
The BB cream comes in a simple designed tube with a screw cap and contains 25 ml. If you squeeze out the product it has a fluffy cconsistency and you get a white colored cream-mousse with little grains in it. The cream is practically scentless.

If you apply the cream on your skin and blend it in, these small grains are responsible for color. Below you will see an image of my face before and after applying the BB cream.

You will notice that my face looks a little bit darker, although I chose the brightest color they provided. It gives you light coverage, compared to Missha’s BB Cream which really gives you good coverage, but on the other side it feels very light on the skin. After an hour the color at least adapted well to my skin and it really looks natural and the skin feels soft and not sticky or oily. I think this cream could work well on oily skin. I would have liked a more moisturizing feeling for my dry skin, though. The Body Shops All-In-One BB Cream is more comparable to a tinted moisturizer cream. It doesn’t have any sunlight protection abilities unfortunately, otherwise I would have said it is a perfect alternative for hot summer days if you don’t want to wear to much on your face. This BB cream costs 14 € and I would suggest anyone who is looking for a real BB cream to invest this money instead on a BB cream from Asia.
