Comments about Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen:

I hardly ever return anything but I just had to with this one. Stuck to dry patches I didn't even know I had, and it made me break out horribly with cystic acne and clogged literally every poor on my face after 1 use. A week later and I'm still suffering.

    Overall it was great! It applied really well even out my skin tone and looks good with my foundation over it. The only downside I had was that my combination skin around my mouth dried out and started flakng a little.

                This is the perfect liquid for powder foundation lovers. It is a silky mousse that glides on so smooth. It leaves a matte finish. Feels lightweight and lasts all day. The coverage is unbelivable for a bb product. I can get medium to full coverage. The spf is perfect for everyday. I have oily skin and its perfect for the summer. During the winter I can't wear this as it will show any sign of dryness or flakes. I also wish that they would make a light-medium shade as the light can be too light and the medium is too dark. I buy the travel size tubes so I can mix the two.

                I LOVE this product!!! Before Tarte BB cream I used a very heavy full foundation. An Ulta sales associate convinced me to try Tarte. It is so light weight; I don't feel like there is paint on my face like other heavy foundations. It is smooth and just glides on. I tried my old foundation a couple months after using Tarte & felt like there was paint on my face. Tarte BB cream blends well. I would not recommend this product if you are looking to color correct or hide dark bags or red blotches. The only negative is I feel it does not last 12 hours, but then again my face it a bit oily.

                Easy to apply either with fingers or brush. Has a great medium coverage to even out skintones. I wear BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen in light every day. It lasts all day even with the high humidity here in florida. A little goes a long way so the price is great for the amount of product you use. I do not leave my house with out this, mascara and lip balm on. A great clean natural look. Love it.

                    Yes, unopened, it can last for years! :-) Just be sure to store it properly, at room temperature or cooler and out of direct sunlight (such as in your bathroom cabinet).

                    A:

                    Yes, because of the BB Tinted Treatment's priming benefits, it performs beautifully underneath your foundation! It helps to ensure smooth application and to extend your foundation's wear, as well as provide a bit of extra coverage.

                    Both are wonderful options for those with oily skin, since they are oil-free and formulated for all skin types. If you prefer a matte finish, you may like the CC Primer best.
