The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream

The BB Cream phenomenon swept the blogosphere in 2011 and since has become one of the biggest beauty trends of the year, leaving almost every blogger with a version of the Asian Beauty Balm in their cosmetics bag. I recently decided it was time to see what all the fuss was about but after visiting various beauty counters and testing different forms of the BB cream, I felt that nothing really deserved to replace my beauty serum, primer or concealer as promised.

However, after seeing the hype surrounding the release of The Body Shop's All-In-One BB Cream last month I decided to give it a try. Unlike many other beauty balms the All-In-One BB Cream offers colour adapting capsules that transform when applied to the skin. After playing around with the testers I opted for the 02 Medium Skin Tone as I felt it best complimented my warm skin tone.

I got my BB Cream home and instantly began experimenting. With only a small amount, the tinted BB Cream offers a light, overall coverage with a dewy and undetectable finish, acting as a really great make-up base or as a tinted moisturiser in the warmer months. I found I received the strongest results using a blusher brush to apply and buff the cream into my skin, it offered a stronger colour match and resulted in a much more even finish.

I really love how light the product both looks and feels on my skin and at £12 it's an absolute steal! Besides the fact there's no SPF, The Body Shop's All-In-One BB Cream will definitely be my go-to for flawless summer skin. For now though I'll be using it as a great hydrating make-up base.

Have any of you been using The Body Shop's All-In-One BB Cream? Let me know your thoughts!
