    Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

    I really like the texture of the product. I wanted and asked for a light makeup with moisturizer and sun protection. I wish I had gotten a darker shade and that the SPF was higher than 20.

      Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      I love this makeup! I have very sensitive skin and this does not irritate it or cause breakouts. I am 45 and have found that heavier makeup settles into fine lines making them look deeper. This product does not do that, plus it evens my skin tone and keeps my skin moisturized. It is a tinted moisturizer so don't expect it to cover anything too serious, but it is perfect for everyday wear and looks very natural. On days when I need more coverage or want a more "made up" look I use the Tarte Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation powder on top of this tinted moisturizer. They work well together.

      Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      I have been using this BB Cream for over a year and initially I loved it. However, a couple of months ago I started getting itchy red spots in several places on my face, then I started getting full blown facial hives every day. I tried several different things to help/stop it. Trying a new facial cleanser, new moisturizer, never thinking it could be this BB Cream. After changing several items BUT my makeup, I stopped using this product for several weeks and my hives went away. Out of morbid curiosity, I tried the BB cream (one last time) to see if that was indeed the cause and again hives.

      Not sure if the formula changed? Very sad.

        Way too sheer for my liking. This is definitely for someone who has no flaws and just wants to wear a tinted sunscreen. I tried using my beauty blender (wet and dry), a brush and tried to build it up and still didn't give me a light-medium coverage i was wanting.

          I switched to this one from NARS Tinted Moisturizer, and before i bought this one, the cosmetologist even applied a Lancôme tinted moisturizer. It was 10 dollars more than the Tarte product and ten times better. I didnt want a lot of coverage, just a dewy glow to my skin, and this one fit that! Its so smooth, too

            I am fair skinned, not as fair as a red head might be. I also never wear foundation because I do not like spending much time on my look but as I have gotten older I have wanted a little more out of my face due to the redness I have. I do not have acne or pimples, I have clear normal skin and I am 25. It gave me great coverage, I am very sensitive to smells and this was something that worked well for me. Since I used it a handful of times it is now a year old and practically brand new. :(

                  I have combo-sensitive skin and was looking for light weight coverage with SPF. This seemed creamy and nourishing applied to the top of my hand. For whatever reason, it stuck to any hint of dry skin on my face. Maybe this was the formulation of the SPF, because sunscreen sometimes does this to me. I think it would be great for someone with flawless skin. Shimmers are also fairly obvious, which borderlines on glitter. Maybe good for teens? Had to return.

                    Clean ingredients-no animal testing; my top two requirements. I also want something that improves my complexion but not greasy/heavy with just a touch of sunscreen since I live in FL. This fits the bill. I've tried other brands but keep returning to this excellent product.

                        You can absolutely use BB Tinted Moisturizer to create a smooth, even canvas for foundation application! It features a hydrating formula to help alleviate dryness, and its sheer tint helps to even skin tone and add additional coverage.
