    Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

    I use this product daily to even out my skin tone & get a nice over-all glow. The cost was shockingly inexpensive therefore I didn't have huge expectations but to my surprise, the quality was exceptional. It's light on my skin, which is wonderful. It gives me good coverage without the appearance of having anything on.

          Being older, I like the illuminating tone to bounce light off the lines and wrinkles. Also appreciate the SPF. Use when I am doing a more natural look. I will continue to purchase whenever it is on sale as it is a little expensive otherwise for the amount when there are plenty of comparable products out there.

            A little dab will do ya. Dot on cheeks chin nose and forehead blend with sponge. A little mascara and lipgloss and I'm good to go! I love the even tone this BB creme gives to my skin.

            I like to use this in my daily regimen - it's perfect for indoor/outdoor, day/night.
            I like the texture and the way this product applies.
            I wish there were one or two lighter color options - the light is not very light, and still with a very warm tone.
            Wouldn't consider this a very "light" coverage/application either - it's heavier than others I've used.
            This has a very dewy look, not at all matte - completely personal preference. I kind of like the dewy look.

            Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

            I am looking for very shear coverage and this provides too much for me right out of the tube. The color is also too deep even though I ordered "light". So I mix it in my palm before using it. I use either moisturizer or water before applying. The color is still too dark for me but the coverage is better.

            Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

            I got this product in the shade 'Light' and although I'm at my tannest right now, I'm still too fair. For reference I'm shade Ceylan in Nars sheer glow, NC20 in MAC. This product seemed like it would be lightweight but it went greasy quickly after applying and I have normal/dry skin. I got this during the big ulta sale when it was only $5 so good deal but not a good product in my opinion. I returned this along with several other ulta brand products I bought on the sale.

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

                    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.

                    This product's silicone base works wonderfully to "fill in" fine lines and wrinkles to promote smooth, even skin texture. It also contains vitamins A, C, and E, which provide antioxidant and anti-aging benefits to the skin. This multi-tasker serves as a tinted moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one and can be layered under any formula of foundation if you feel you need more coverage. Shade Medium may be your best match.
