    Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

    I absolutely love BB! It's my summer go-to face product. I use it daily in the summer, it provides SPF protection and smooths and evens out skin-tone just enough. I love that it's not heavy and gives a natural, low-maintenance finish. Good stuff!

            Love how natural it looked. Always had a problem with flaky foundation but this covers well and blends easily to use bronzer over the top without it being too heavy.

                        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.

                        Light is what we'd recommend for you! Mixing it with Illuminating wouldn't make it any lighter, it would just add a dewy glow finish to it, so you certainly could mix them if you like that effect! :-)
