Review: The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside


Sponsored Review

BB Creams are still at the top of my list when it comes to base makeup. I love how it gives adequate coverage and sun protection.

This serum-infused BB Cream named Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside is the latest addition to the Moisture White Shiso range from The Body Shop. While I had a negative experience with their All-In-One BB Cream, I had to say this new BB Cream won me over.

“Delivering superior skincare benefits, Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside instantly brightens, corrects, protects and care for your complexion, making it the multi-tasking must-have for busy, time-pressed mornings. With a wonderfully lightweight, smooth texture, our sensational serum-infused BB Cream is a joy to apply.

Suitable for all skin types, its radiant beige shade was specially developed to suit most Asian skin tones. The good level of coverage provides a natural finish. Perfect!”

So what is Shiso? Shiso is a member of the mint/basil family and believed to reduce early melanin-making signals for brighter, more luminous skin, giving a better overall complexion. With its valuable properties, it is widely used in food, medical and cosmetics.

The BB Cream has 8 benefits in 1 bottle:

- Brightening
- Instant Hydration
- Natural Finish
- Easy Blendable
- Soothing
- Evens skin tone
- Lightweight
- UV Protection (Mineral sunscreen SPF25 PA+++)

The formula behind this success is a unique blend of Shiso, vitamin C and Community Fair Trade aloe vera. 71% of 100 Asian women saw instantly fairer skin upon application.

The BB Cream comes in a nifty pump bottle, making it easy to control the amount of product needed.

It provides a flawless finish and fairer complexion. The texture is really thick and creamy, enough to cover my dark undereye circles and blemishes. A little goes a long way, one pump is sufficient for my entire face. After which, I would lightly dab some loose powder to set the BB Cream. It can last up to 6 hours before my skin starts to turn oily.

I love how the BB Cream blends effortlessly into my skin. Not only it brightens the skin, it doesn’t leave a grey cast nor make my face look dull. Of all the BB Creams I have tried, this is probably my favorite so far. The above photo was taken under natural sunlight.

Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside has launched islandwide on 4 March 2013 and retails at S$39.90 for a bottle.

Thanks for reading! =)
