    I use both the light and fair colors. Blending them gets me the perfect color through the seasons. I even use this as a sunscreen when swimming and outdoors. It's the only sunscreen I've found that doesn't break me out.

      Comments about Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen:

      I was looking for something light weight so I usually go with powders, however, I couldn't find one that matched my skin tone and still had great coverage. This BB cream was recommended, and it works great for quick and lightweight coverage. The only problem is it runs out so quickly!

          I wad needing a new primer to wear under my Amazonian Clay foundation and this BB cream was recommended to me. I was skeptical about using it under my foundation, but it leaves my skin looking even and provides great coverage along with the Amazonian Clay foundation. I love how well all Tarte products work together. It's all I use now!

          Comments about Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen:

          Okay, I'm going to start by saying I absolutely LOVE this product. The coverage is so awesome, that I could wear this as my foundation and be happy. It's so smooth and makes my face look FLAWLESS! It lasts all day long, and into the night, but I have noticed it transfers pretty easily onto my clothes. The shade that I bought is a little bit too dark for my skin, but that's easily fixable. My one and only complaint with this, is that it makes me break out. Bad. So if you have sensitive skin, I would steer clear of this. Otherwise, it's an awesome product, and so worth the money!

          Comments about Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen:

          This BB creme gives me a lightweight, even amount of coverage without irritating my (very!) sensitive skin, even over breakouts/skin irritation. Love the sunscreen built into the product and application is a breeze, just spread like a lotion and blend with fingertips or a brush, also blends nicely over and under concealer. The color blends perfectly with my skin tone, as well. Only complaints are that it can transfer to clothes/hands a little more easily than I'd like, but doesn't remove as easily as you'd think. It also tends to flake and clump a bit around blemishes, with a slightly powdery finish that belies the smooth application. Overall a great product and I would recommend.

            This product is my go-to everyday primer/concealer/foundation/SPF in one. I wear with blush and I am good to go! After I moisturize, I apply it with a soft-bristled brush or my fingers. It feels like light velvet: smooth, easy to blend, not greasy, matte/natural finish. It has never caused me to break out (I have sensitive, cystic acne-prone skin). It lasts through a work day, but I need to reapply if I am going out in the evening. I have some discoloration to my skin (acne scars, etc.) and normal pores, and this BB cream makes my skin smooth and even without looking like I'm wearing makeup, very natural. Can't say enough good things about it.

                    A:

                    This product is oil-free and recommended for all skin types including oily skin. CC Primer would be better if your primary concern is to color-correct/neutralize redness, discoloration, or dull skin, though BB Primer also helps to promote even skin tone with its light-to-medium buildable coverage.

                    The Amazonian clay in the Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 works to hydrate and brighten the skin, and this product has a more sheer finish.

                    Both are great options to improve the overall appearance of skin with oil-free, light-to-medium coverage for a flawless finish.
