    starting as summer, I am looking for a cream with spf. this works well, as it is lightweight, and has pretty awesome coverage as long as I apply it with a beauty blender. using fingers it seems to separate a bit.

      I seriously stock up on these when they are on sale! Especially on the illuminating color. They are great to wear by themselves for light coverage with any color or under foundation with illuminating for a brighter look! I was in a wedding this weekend and used this under my MAC foundation and got complements on my "glowing skin" all night!

          I told the salesperson I needed a product that was non-comedogenic. She recommended this product, but I highly doubt this fits in the non-comedogenic category. I started breaking out a day or two after using it, which rarely happens. I really like the coverage, but it makes me question if the associates know what products in the store are non-comedogenic or not....

            I was looking for something to put on when I didn't have to do the whole foundation/ contour routine. Or on no makeup days when I wanted a little coverage. It's so sparkly and dewy. Not good if you're evenly slightly oily. It's okay but not on its own. Matte powder is a must.

              I needed more coverage. I have an uneven complexion and need moisture, lots of moisture. I have dry skin. This is best for hardly any coverage and normal skin. I like most ULTA Items. Had to return and now trying something different. Do you get annoyed by packaging that attracts stains & looks dirty easy? I think I'm weird about packaging.

                    A:

                    BB stands for "beauty balm"; a BB cream is a multi-purpose face product that provides sheer-to-medium coverage, features skin perfecting benefits such as optical blurring pigments and/or skincare ingredients, and hydrates the skin. Many BB's including this one also feature sun protection.

                    CC stands for "color correcting"; a CC cream typically features all the same benefits as a BB, plus provides color correcting benefits/ingredients to minimize the appearance of discoloration and/or uneven skin tone.

                    BB's and CC's typically provide sheerer coverage than a traditional foundation, but many who prefer fuller coverage use BB's and CC's prior to foundation application to provide the benefits detailed above plus prep the skin for makeup application.

                    ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20 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.

                    We hope this extra info helps! :-)

                  Does this BB cream, in light, have a shimmering, sparkle additive to represent 'dewy' appearance?

                    A:

                    It does not have a sparkle additive, but it does have a very fine radiant pearl that would leave you with a dewy finish.

                    No primer is necessary, since ULTA BB Cream features built-in priming benefits! :-) If you prefer to use a primer anyway, apply BB cream after your primer for best results!

                    Light is what we'd recommend for you! Mixing it with Illuminating wouldn't make it any lighter, it would just add a dewy glow finish to it, so you certainly could mix them if you like that effect! :-)
