Here is a review of another cream I bought from The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso range. I hope you guys remember my The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Night Cream. This cream is from the same range and I have been using them both since the time I got them.

My Experience with The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso BB Cream:
I loved The Body Shop Moisture White Night cream and you already saw it in my last review, but I am not going to rave about this one. Not because it is not worth it but because probably I am not the right person to judge it! How? Read on.
First, I am not much of a foundation person. This cream is more like a tinted moisturiser or maybe kind of a foundation cream. It can be used as a make up base conveniently. Please do not confuse it with a moisturiser. IT IS NOT A MOISTURISER. That is the mistake I made. While buying it, I completely forgot about moisturising properties and did not even enquire about it.
This cream, when applied on the face, forms a light, non-greasy layer on your face which is slightly tinted. So, yes, it does give you an instant glow! That’s the best news. I use it while stepping outside. It has a SPF factor, so that protects you from the sun rays.
I needed a moisturiser that would also even out my skin tone and that is why I bought this cream. It does even out my skin tone but only superficially. It may be an ideal cream for women who go out to work every day and need a tinted moisturiser or a cream for instant glow. Since I stay at home, I was not very comfortable with it.
The good thing is that you have to apply it in a very very little amount, so it goes a long way! Also, be very careful with the amount you dab on your face as if you put more, it will make you look like an ape! 😉 and once it is there in excess on your face, OMG, you got to get some cleansing milk to remove it. It doesn’t go with water! Phew!
Pros of The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso BB Cream:
- Gives an instant glow.
- Instantly makes you fairer and gives a fresh look to the face.
- Contains SPF.
- Comes in a sleek tube that can be easily carried around.
- Evens out skin tone (superficially).
- Need to apply just a little bit, so it comes for months.
- Gives good results if used over a moisturiser.
- Can be used as a perfect makeup base.
- Ideal for using as a stand-alone foundation; I am not a foundation person, so couldn’t appreciate it totally, but girls out here looking for a foundation that is subtle in nature, may find it good.
Cons of The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso BB Cream:
- Does not moisturise the skin.
- Forms a thin, light layer on the face, I am okay with it, but some may find it odd.
- Need to be very careful in the amount you dab onto your face. Just a little over the required amount can make you look funny.
- A little expensive compared to its non-moisturising properties
Will I Repurchase The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso BB Cream?
Probably not, but that is only because I have a need that is not fulfilled by this cream. The product in itself is good.
