    Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

    I love this product! I use it before my foundation routine as a primer. It has a real silky texture and is not over shimmery. The only reason it doesn't have 5 stars is you don't get a lot in the bottle..I wish it would last longer cause I find myself having to use a little more than I would a primer or other moisturizer.

      I use this on the days I work, which are 12-14 shifts. Keeps my skin moisturized without getting dry or overly oil. Only down side is color match for my skin isn't perfect (light is too pale and medium is too tan), I have to carefully apply and blend with powder.

      Since this was tinted, I was hoping for at least a tiny bit of coverage. Nope, it's really just a moisturizer. It does have SPF and has a nice light texture, I was just really wanting a little bit of coverage.

              for this to be "light" it was entirely too dark and had a very strong orange tint to it. I had to give it to a friend because it totally didn't match my skin tone and there was no tester when I bought it, so since I am light I went with light - big mistake!

                What undertone do each of these shades have? I have a light skin tone with a warm olive undertone, so anything with a cool or pink undertone looks very unflattering and sickly on me.

                  All shades are neutral to suite all undertones. For those with light skin tones, we recommend Light or Illuminating (sheer glow for all skin tones).

                How does this BB cream compare to Tarte's BB cream? Tarte is my current regimen, but I would love to switch to Ulta's brand, which is more affordable.

                  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.

                  BB Cream provides sheer, natural coverage. It provides SPF 20 sun protection, helps to even out skin tone, and provides lightweight hydration. It is suitable for all skin types and works great as a makeup primer applied under your foundation.

                  Absolutely! You can "cocktail" the Illuminating shade with any of the skin tone shades for a tinted luminescent effect.

                Is this product mattifying? I have combination skin around my mouth, but mostly oily everywhere else so a glow isn't needed.

                  This BB cream is a real multi-tasker! It serves as your tinted moisturizer, sunscreen, and primer in one. It features SPF 20 and light coverage for a healthy, even complexion. It can be used alone or underneath foundation. It is oil-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic.

                  Yes, this BB cream works beautifully under foundation due to its built-in priming benefits! It smooths skin's texture for even application, plus extends the wear of your foundation.

                  A:

                  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.
