      It has been perfect for my skin, some other brand the medium is off but with this one I had no problem blending it. Nice texture and you don't need a lot

          like it almost as much as the tinted moisturizer. a bit hard to wash off my fingers- but that just tells me it's going to stay on my face longer!

            The illuminating Ulta BB cream is the best low-end BB cream I've used. I used to only use the Garnier version but found it made my acne-prone skin more vulnerable. The Ulta version doesn't clog my pores, covers well, and controls oil while still keeping a dewy finish. Ulta products have really improved!

                It's great that you can get a hint of color, but the light was too light and the medium was too dark for my skin tone.

                      I go to work at 3am, and face it, nobody wants to do a full face of makeup at that time (unless somehow you are coming IN instead of heading OUT). This gives me GREAT coverage to look awake at work, doesn't make my skin oily or break out, and lasts all day.

                          The BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20 features built-in priming benefits, so there is no need to use an additional primer!

                          This product provides a natural, demi-matte finish. Please note that it is oil-free and well suited to all skin types including oily skin.

                      • Q:

                        Do I need to use the ulta foundation primer with this BB cream?! Also, I have super dry and sensitive skin. Any kind of fragrance wreaks havoc on it. I have bought products that say they are hypoallergenic/fragrance free before but they proved not to be. Can you say this product is 100% free of any kind of fragrance?!

                          It depends on your skin type. Those with dry skin may prefer to use in conjunction with an additional moisturizer, while those with oily skin may find that BB Cream provides a perfect level of hydration. We hope this helps! :-)

                          We recommend testing the Deep shade at your nearest ULTA Beauty store to ensure it is the perfect match for your complexion:

                          This product would be ideal for you if you are seeking a hydrating tinted moisturizer that provides sheer, natural looking coverage plus offers sun protection (SPF 20).
