      Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

      I have been diagnosed with vitiligo, and while my skin hasn't lost all pigment, there are definite discolored patches on my face. There isn't a way of knowing if the patches will continue to spread, and since I work with children, I wanted something that would help conceal the patches. This BB cream is THE BUSINESS. My skin is super oily, but the vitiligo patches are dry. The cream is super moisturizing, but controls oil better than my foundation. The first time I wore it, everyone swore I had a crazy glow, because your skin literally sparkles (but not with glitter). Seriously this is the best!

        By Emma

        Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

        This is actually the worst looking bb cream I have ever purchased. I expected a lot more from this product reading the reviews that were posted... I first applied this in front of the mirror for the first time and was horrified with the results. My face was completely orange. But it did not look as oily however... With the extremely pale skin I have, this is no way the product for me... maybe for Donald Trump though!

                        To be on the safe side, we recommend visiting your nearest Ulta Beauty store to test both Illuminating and Light shades to see which you prefer. Illuminating is the safest bet, we'd guess! :-)

                        A:

                        BB stands for "beauty balm"; a BB cream is a multi-purpose face product that provides sheer-to-medium coverage, features skin perfecting benefits such as optical blurring pigments and/or skincare ingredients, and hydrates the skin. Many BB's including this one also feature sun protection.

                        CC stands for "color correcting"; a CC cream typically features all the same benefits as a BB, plus provides color correcting benefits/ingredients to minimize the appearance of discoloration and/or uneven skin tone.

                        BB's and CC's typically provide sheerer coverage than a traditional foundation, but many who prefer fuller coverage use BB's and CC's prior to foundation application to provide the benefits detailed above plus prep the skin for makeup application.

                        ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20 provides sheer, natural coverage. It provides SPF 20 sun protection, helps to even out skin tone, and provides lightweight hydration. It is suitable for all skin types and works great as a makeup primer applied under your foundation.

                        We hope this extra info helps! :-)

                        It does not have a sparkle additive, but it does have a very fine radiant pearl that would leave you with a dewy finish.
