    I mix this with my moisturizer for everyday use. I find that mixing makes it go on even smoother. I use it "straight up" for a little more coverage.

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

    I was looking for a lightweight BB cream that wouldn't break my skin out and this fits the bill. You control the coverage (lighter to heavier), blends well and lasts all day (even through a Phoenix summer day!) I do not like/wear foundation so this is a great substitute. Only downside is the cost (I usually buy the trial size and can make it last for 6-weeks).

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

      I love this BB cream! I think the intention is to use it as a primer under foundation, but I wear it alone for a natural look. It goes on smoothly and easily, and it evens out my complexion so that I don't need to wear anything else on my face. I love that it has SPF 30, and that, like all Tarte products, it doesn't have a lot of harmful added ingredients. It also lasts FOREVER- a little bit goes a long way. I've been using it for a year and only now had to purchase a new bottle. HIGHLY recommend!

              This product really does help my very oily skin not get that mid-day, greasy shine which has been the bane of my existence, Ugh!! I am an African American woman with suntan skin tone, large pores on my cheeks and forehead areas, 56 years old and my face is still extremely oily sometimes a mixture of oily, dry skin (in the winter) which most products do not address especially in mature skin….until now. Thank you SO much TARTE!!

                    A:

                    This product is oil-free and recommended for all skin types including oily skin. CC Primer would be better if your primary concern is to color-correct/neutralize redness, discoloration, or dull skin, though BB Primer also helps to promote even skin tone with its light-to-medium buildable coverage.

                    A:

                    Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer SPF 30 is a long-wear formula that can be worn as a light foundation, primer, moisturizer, anti-aging treatment, and sunscreen.

                    The Amazonian clay in the Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 works to hydrate and brighten the skin, and this product has a more sheer finish.

                    Both are great options to improve the overall appearance of skin with oil-free, light-to-medium coverage for a flawless finish.

                    A:

                    You can use this product alone or under foundation, depending on how much coverage you're seeking to achieve. Tarte BB on its own provides sheer, natural coverage, so if you're desiring medium-to-full coverage, we'd suggest layering foundation over it (its priming benefits will ensure smooth, lasting application). If you only need spot coverage, you can use Tarte BB with a concealer like Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Waterproof Concealer to hide any imperfections:

                    A:

                    Yes, we highly recommend BB creams for those with combination skin! You will find that this product helps to balance moisture and oil and adds a silky smooth texture to the skin. It's ideal to use as a primer prior to foundation application, because it will help to minimize flakiness and improve skin texture for a smooth canvas. It also extends foundation's wear!

                    If you have issues with foundation wearing off, we recommend trying Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen, which features 12 hours of full coverage wear:
