amazing!

Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

I bought this on a whim just because I have never tried a BB cream and Ulta was doing a promotion for a cosmetic bag case filled with goodies. So I bought this. I tried it out today and I have had an experience with the Garnier BB cream when it first came out that made me promise to never try BB Creams again. Well- I must say that this BB cream is amazing. Evened out skin tone and did the job. I have very dry, sensitive, eczema prone skin and this made my skin look incredible. Only down side is it is a bit greasy (even for my dry skin) as with most BB creams.

      I use this product as a light moisturizer and light coverage. I enjoy this product and my only complaint is the lightest shade still looks like a light bronzer on my skin.

          Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

          I use the "illuminating" shade of this product daily as a base under my foundation, over primer. The Illuminating shade has a very slight tint to it along with some shimmer which, in my opinion, isn't to over the top. I have EXTREMELY fair/light skin and this soft shade is almost a perfect match! Of the few Ulta brand products I've tried this is the only one I continue to buy and use daily. My only complaint is the poorly designed bottle the product comes in. A brand new bottle is great, but once you've used about half of the bottle It takes some effort to remove the remaining cream from the container.

          I bought this when it was buy one, get one free. If I hadn't bought it on sale, I would have been disappointed. It's half the size of most other similar products available. The product itself is fine, there's just far too little of it for the price, especially for a store brand.

            I typically buy brand names for most of my makeup, especially BB cream, but was very impressed with this Ulta version. It is very lightweight, blends easily with a sponge and gives your face a nice glow. My face doesn't look like I'm wearing a lot of make-up.I found it to be much lighter than the Tarte BB cream I previously used.

              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.

                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.
