    Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

    when i apply this, it doesn't even look or feel like i'm wearing anything, it just looks like i have skin thats better than what it actually is. if you have red skin (from acne or otherwise) this product covers it pretty well and it's long lasting, been wearing for about 12 hours and still looks fresh. smells like lotion, but it's not very strong, doesn't bother me.

      I have been a clinique user for many years. I purchased this Ulta BB cream because it was it was on sale. I absolutely love it. It goes on well and stays on during the day. It looks as good as expensive makeup.
      I will definitely be buying this product again.

          I began using another BB cream while traveling through Europe. When I could not get it here, I chose the ULTA BB cream and think it is wonderful. I especially like the glow that the illuminating color gives.

                Nice lightweight tinted moisturizer for my over 50 combo skin. I can use it as a sheer foundation or as a base for my mineral foundation when I need more coverage. It doesn't settle in my pores and lines-blends in nicely. I like this product better than itcosmetics cc+. The only drawback is, is that it's often sold out at my local Ulta!

                        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.
