Obviously, I am a big fan of The Body Shops. I use their product from the time I was a merely a high school girl, which is a long time ago. There is something about their product and how they set their product in every shop. So today I am going to re-post and upgrade my review of this BB Cream Color Adapting Tinted Cream from my old blog post, since I am still using this product from time to time.
I'm not a big fan of heavy foundation for my everyday look, when I lived in Bali, the weather always make me sweaty, I need something light and give me the perk of that 20's glow :) ( Mind you I was 36). Now I am living in The Netherlands and the cold weather is a bit harsh on my 40 years old skin, to have this tinted moisturiser is actually quite a saving when I want to have a fresh go to look.
When I first bought the BB Cream of The Body Shop, I never expected that I'm going to like it that much, sure I bought the wrong color at first ( thinking that Im lighter ), then I learned that number 3 suits best for me.
So here it goes, the perk of my review
From www.thebodyshop.co.id :

[+/- CI 77891 (Colour), CI 77 492 (Colour), CI 77 491 (Colour), CI 77499 (Colour)]. Review on the website : The website is informative, simple and user friendly Packaging : Its a tube, clean one, and easy to use. When you open the cap, the cream wills stay inside, until you give it a squeeze. Its a smart and simple packaging, with a silver color, it also exudes a high end stuff. Texture : It's creamy. It looks white when you first squeeze it, but when you apply it to your face, it will change color. So choose your color right ladies. How to Apply : I usually use it after I apply The Body Shop blur effect ( great product also), where it will make your pore smaller and your face smoother. Afterward, I apply the BB cream, just few dots, and apply it gently with my make up brush, which I think gave me a more moist natural look. ( but sometimes I add powder to my T area) My Skin Condition : Oily on my T zone and dry on my cheekbone area My Review : I love it, not only it enhance my natural look, but it also gives my skin tone a more kick ass color. Rate : 9/10
