      I use it under my foundation where I need it. I don't like it as much as other brands I've tried but its not terrible. It also appears shimmery, like glitter so that's a little weird.

          It was a lot more sparkly then I was expecting. I had been wanting to try a BB cream instead of using a foundation all the time. I wish it had a little more coverage. I love that it has spf in it.

            This is my new go to BB cream. I love the texture but the biggest reason I get it, is for the sunscreen. I'm allergic to chemical sunscreens and this doesn't make me break out or get a rash.

              Every day- I don't leave my house until I do my face. This BB crime gives me a smooth, even complexion without appearing obviously made up. Most men here have whiskers and beards and such, but mine is smooth and clear.

                  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! :-)

              • Q:

                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.

                Do I apply the bb cream before or after the foundation primer?

                  A:

                  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!

                  A:

                  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! :-)
