    Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

    I began using another BB cream while traveling through Europe. When I could not get it here, I chose the ULTA BB cream and think it is wonderful. I especially like the glow that the illuminating color gives.

        Nice lightweight tinted moisturizer for my over 50 combo skin. I can use it as a sheer foundation or as a base for my mineral foundation when I need more coverage. It doesn't settle in my pores and lines-blends in nicely. I like this product better than itcosmetics cc+. The only drawback is, is that it's often sold out at my local Ulta!

          I will never use anything else! I love this product. I have good skin but it tends to be dry. This does not look dry, cakey, or flaky. It gives my skin a nice glow. Love it!

              I have used a lot of BB Creams, but decided to try the ULTA brand for more of a budget, and have found it works just as nice as the more expensive brands, and great for on-the-go and a good base and sunscreen for the face

              Bought this with my daughter, and figured that she would snag it. I got to it first, and I do love it. At times, I feel a bit old (mid-40's) for the level of sparkle this product contains. However, I am an early bird and get to work an hour or two ahead of everyone else, and by the time they arrive, I no longer look like an escaped vampire from Twilight.

                    I didn't know what to expect as I have never used a BB cream before. I bought the illumination shade for all over face coverage...I think it made me have an almost Twilight glowing vampire appearance which I don't know if I used it wrong or not. Not happy nor dis-satisfied with the product as I didn't know what to expect.

                    Works on my sensitive combo 50 she skin without settling into wrinkles. Is more natural ingredients than most. Just as good as expensive brands if you use the illuminating color only. I use it under my Bare minerals. I wish it had more of a soft shimmer to it but that's it.

                      I am a new mom and don't always have time anymore for a full makeup routine. I love this product. I use it as a moisturizer and just to give my face a smooth even look. Add a little ulta bronzer and I'm out the door. I felt so blah after having a baby and just this one product helps make me feel and look refreshed! It has great coverage, no lines, and when I have time I use it as a foundation as well! Would recommend to anyone!! I use the illuminating so there is no specific color, it just evens out my skin tone and gives me my lost 'glow!'

                          Because this product features a silicone base, we do not recommend mixing it with your moisturizer. Instead, apply your moisturizer first, then layer this product over top. We recommend using your fingers to apply it to the skin. Once applied, you can blend and buff using a makeup brush or sponge, depending on your preference, or you can blend using your fingers.

                          This product's silicone base works wonderfully to "fill in" fine lines and wrinkles to promote smooth, even skin texture. It also contains vitamins A, C, and E, which provide antioxidant and anti-aging benefits to the skin. This multi-tasker serves as a tinted moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one and can be layered under any formula of foundation if you feel you need more coverage. Shade Medium may be your best match.
