The Body Shop - BB Cream and Eau De Toilette

The Body Shop - All in one BB cream*
Vanilla eau de toilette

The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream  - There are so many BB creams out there at the moment, and The Body Shop decided to join in and brought out their own. This BB cream is unique in the fact that it comes out of the tube white, and 'adapts to the colour of your skin' as you rub it in. There are 3 shades available (I got matched up with 02) and unlike most BB creams, there's no SPF! Which is quite disappointing and surprising. When I applied this BB cream it immediately started to turn an orange colour and didn't adapt to my skin tone at all - Maybe the lady in the shop matched me up with the wrong shade? After a lot of blending I managed to reduce the orange a bit and admittedly my skin was left feeling great and the cream felt very light despite the colour. Overall I'm pretty disappointed with this BB cream, I'd definitely recommend trying it out in the shop before purchasing it! (See the full description here)

The Body Shop Vanilla Eau De Toilette - This product is a staple for me, I first got this eau de toilette when I was about 12 years old and I find myself repurchasing it over and over again. - I've gone through about 4 now! It comes in a 30ml bottle and lasts quite a long time, the smell is amazing, simple, and lingers all day long. I tend to wear it on days where I'm not doing much and just want a light fragrance. I'd definitely recommend going to a Body Shop store and having a look! (The Body Shop also do different scents if Vanilla isn't for you!)

Have a lovely day!

    1. I know, me too! I'm not sure if it's whether I got matched up wrong or not, but shade 01 looked too pink for me! Thank you lovely. xx

  2. Great reviews! Too bad about the BB cream. I haven't tried any BB creams so far, are there any you've tried you would recommend?

    1. Thanks! I would definitely recommend Origins BB Cream, i think it's about £18 and it's really nice in my opinion. You could also take a look at the Dr Jart BB creams, they're really good too. x
