this is everything wrong in a BB cream! All the negative reviews here are true.
It's streaky, cakey, impossible to blend, zero coverage, no SPF, no staying power, wrong shade (pink/orange), pricey...etc.
Anyways I'm here for a tip to make it work, but I think there is nothing I could do except throw it to the trash.

I bought this after an hormonal imbalance when I was 30. The smell it’s very strong and makes the skin super dry so the skin compensates doing more oil. As a result I was extremely shiny and the product literally melts on the face. Also it’s very orange. My acne was even worse with this. This is probably the worst bb I’ve bought, and it’s very sad because I really love body shop and it’s environment and cruelty free policy.

The first time I used this, I applied with my fingers and was left with a streaky mess. I was pissed because this is quite expensive. Not impressed at all.
Next time, I used my Dr Brandt pores no more primer, and applied with my tarte airbrush foundation brush. Guys and gals, I looked airbrushed! This is my go to everyday bb. Not to overly done up for erands but still super cute amyway.
The tea tree smell doesn't bother me. My face agrees with tea tree, so this bb actually helps keep my skin clear.

This has no coverage, if I have to rate the coverage it would be 1/5. But nonetheless, it has a good smell and it helps with my very mild breakouts. It's also not sticky but the longevity is about 3 hours only. I only wear this whenever I have some pimples.

Despite a lot of negative reviews, I personally LOVE this bb cream. The Light shade is actually a pretty close match to my skin tone.

The product is somewhat low-medium coverage. Personally, I like lighter coverage bb creams/foundations and I just double up with concealer, but I can see how this can be frustrating if you like higher coverage.

My favorite part has been the product's positive impact on my acne. I have dry skin and typically have some acne breakouts. Besides hormonal/diet-related acne, I have noticed that my acne has decreased, particularly on my forehead, and I'm pretty sure it's because of the tea tree oil in this product.

I saw other reviews mentioned that the product didn't last long. For me, I think the product has good longevity. As I said, I have dryer skin, so that may not be the case for oily skin.

This is the worst bb cream I've ever tried and I've tried a lot! I've wore it for 2 hours and it separated and caked up. Not to mention the coverage is nothing!!!! I hate this!

I am always on the look out for a good BB cream and I tend to like Tea Tree however I wasn't too thrilled with this one. First of all there are only 3 shades to which I can only really comment on one, which is 01 the lightest shade. The colour itself is quite light and on the cool/pink side although I do not notice it much as it does fade pretty well into my fair/olive skin tone once blended in.

However the coverage is horrible; it has this weird tendency to simply slip around on the skin and doesn't cover much. This is also NOT buildable, it simply clumps and clings to imperfections with a mask like effect especially in daylight. I did spray a bit of rosewater and glycerine toner and that helped greatly but I am not sure this BB cream is worth the money.

Side note, you shouldn't really use tea tree around or anywhere near your eyes which I think poses a bit of a problem too. I def won't repurchase

Overall, I really like this product, but I always mix it with moisturizer before applying it. I find that it has better coverage than most tinted moisturizers, and when diluted and blended in with a bit of Cetaphil lotion, makes my skin more even before I apply powder. The only issue is that it's a bit drying overall. I don't mind the smell - that's just the tea tree oil.

i hate it !
to begin with the smell is horrible honestly, it brings me nightmares I just hate it!
its very patchy and the product literally moves when I try to blend it , it doesn't blend at all
the available colors are very dark, I picked the lightest color and it was extremely dark on me.
it was such a waste of money and wasn't cheap (they sell it in where I live for about 22$)

I had bought this BB cream in 2015, and though I used it frequently back then, I was inexperienced with makeup. I retried this again recently and disliked it immensely. It oxidizes after a few hours, and attempts to blend it well into the skin results in the appearance of balls of the cream popping up. Furthermore, no matter how lightly I put it on my face, it manages to look cakey even though it has minimal coverage. I would not buy this again.
