      Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

      This BB cream did give decent coverage, but it's shimmery and sort of slimy. My husband actually asked if I had glitter on my face. Not the best for me but it could work for you.

        Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

        Been using for over a year now. I love that it provides light coverage and creates brightness to my face. I do lightly dust a transucent face powder over it to "set" it as I live in AZ so it can be a bit sweaty. I get compliments on my skin and it still looks great after wearing all day. Have given some to my daughter (25) and my older sister and they both love it, too! Hope Ulta never discontinues it!

          I've used BB creams before, and usually they are very lightweight, but this one left my skin feeling oily - and looking it too. I don't recommend this product at all.

              Perfect and lightweight. I have tried many BB creams, and recently was addicted to Aveno, but this works well with just the right amount of coverage. Non greasy and lightweight. Will continue to purchase.

                  I love this BB cream. It provides great coverage but is not heavy. I swear it's improved my overall skin texture. Since I'v been using it my skin is softer and smoother. I have recommended this product to all my family and friends.

                    • 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:

                        A:

                        The formulas are very similar. Both products provide sheer coverage with broad spectrum SPF 20 sun protection. Both are oil-free, fragrance-free, gluten-free, formulated for all skin types, and provide light hydration. Both contain vitamins A, C, and E, chamomile, green tea, and hydrating sodium hyaluronate. Tarte's contains Amazonian Clay to balance the skin. Tarte's formula is paraben-free, while ULTA's is not.
