BRIGHTEN UP WITH NEW SERUM-INFUSED BB CREAM
A BB THAT WORKS TWICE AS HARD. MAKEUP COVERAGE PLUS THE POWER OF SHISO SERUM
Hello everyone, I am here today, to share my thoughts about the NEW Moisture White™ Shiso BB Serum Inside by The Body Shop. Have been a while since I last used products from the brand. I remember their Tea Tree skincare range and White Musk fragrance are amongst my favourite during school days.
Delivering superior skincare benefits, Moisture White™ Shiso BB Serum Inside instantly brightens, corrects, protects and cares 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 moist Asian skin tones. The good level of coverage provides a natural finish.
THE RESULTS ARE SO NOTICEABLE THAT 71% OF ASIAN WOMEN WHO TRIED IT SAW INSTANTLY FAIRER SKIN UPON APPLICATION
This BB Cream contains ingredients from our bestselling serum to deliver eight benefits in every application;-
- Instant Hydration
- Natural Finish
- Easily Blendable
- UV Protection (Mineral Sunscreen SPF 25 PA+++)
- Evens Skin Tone
Our entire Moisture White™ Shiso range is infused with a powerful combination of natural ingredients. Shiso, Vitamin C, liquorice and Community Fair Trade organic aloe vera work together in a special complex designed to help you achieve a luminous skin tone.
A renowned antioxidant, Vitamin C helps reduce excessive melanin production. Rich in flavonoids, liquorice is known to enhance skin-brightening. And aloe vera is prized for its soothing and cooling properties.
DEVELOPED FOR AND TESTED BY ASIAN WOMEN, THE PRODUCTS ARE PROVEN TO DELIVER THE VISIBLE BENEFITS OF SKIN RADIANCE, CLARITY AND IMPROVED LUMINOSITY IN JUST FOUR WEEKS
Use Moisture White™ Shiso BB Serum Inside as the final step of your morning skincare routine. Apply with your fingers, gently blending over the face with small circular movements. The chic bottle has an easy-use pump dispenser for a no-mess application.

The Moisture White™ Shiso BB Serum Inside is packaged in a white plastic bottle fitted with a user-friendly pump dispenser. Size of the bottle is handy and at the same time, travel-friendly. The pump dispenser allows you to control the amount you need and 1 pump is more than enough for my entire face and neck.
I usually go for slightly over half a pump for both areas.
SHADE, TEXTURE & FORMULA
This product comes in only one shade for the time being and the shade works wonderfully on me. There are many BB Creams with grey tinge, pink undertones or BB Creams that create a white cast in the market which needs more blending and possibly an extra layer of foundation/loose powder to colour correct. This shade of beige has little to no grey tinge and it blends into my skin tone seamlessly.
After it settles for a few minutes, I noticed a brighter and more radiant complexion.
The Moisture White™ Shiso BB Serum Inside has a natural, glowy and radiant finish – on dry skin or in cooler countries, you may not require any loose powder at all but where I am and with my combination skin type, I definitely have to set with some loose powder to take away the shine around my T-zone.
Texture of this product is dense and creamy at the same time. It’s very easy to blend and the formula allows plenty of time for blending.
Speaking of formula, I didn’t manage to test it out for a straight 4 weeks but I have been using it almost daily (on and off) for a couple of weeks. With that, I am unable to comment on the full benefits of this product.
However, I noticed my skin tone is more even and my complexion is more radiant. At this point of time, I am also unable to judge if it’s because of my skincare regime or mainly because of this product. Do note that I wear this product for very long hours – about 10 on certain days.
COVERAGE & LONGEVITY
Coverage is pretty impressive – I would say that this number provides sheer to medium coverage. It’s able to even up my skin tone, conceal redness around my nose, cheeks plus certain spots and scars. With this product, I can do without a concealer on a day-to-day basis (I don’t usually wear much concealer).
Over the weekends, when I only need a bit of makeup to look fresh – I apply a light dusting of translucent loose powder over it. And on work days, I use either a loose powder with light coverage or a compact foundation (with a big fluffy brush) to set it – this provides adequate coverage for me throughout the day.
I am also very impressed with the oil-control properties and longevity of this product. Blotting is still necessary for me around my T-zone during mid-day but this product lasts very well without sliding, smudging nor caking.
I like to use a buffing brush with this product. After buffing, my skin looks smoother and pores seems less visible especially around my nose area.
Photo above taken during my recent staycation, under natural day light. Note that it’s not freshly applied but instead, I have been wearing this BB cream for almost half a day with no touch ups, only occasion blotting.
I have sensitive skin and some times, whitening products break me out but surprisingly, the Moisture White™ Shiso BB Serum Inside didn’t and I am very grateful for that.
This product kept my skin looking bright and luminous all day long. With a little blotting and touch-up around my T-zone area, I look as fresh as I stepped out of my house in the morning. I have all the 8 benefits mentioned above checked.
I truly enjoy this product – with it, I dropped my hydrating/brightening serum, moisturizer, sunscreen and foundation. I apply straight after my toner and this hard-working, affordable and multi-tasker does it all.
