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

    I have been using this product for well over a year now regularly and have not looked back. It is light and doest feel like it is clogging my pores yet I get great coverage. I use this as my base and used a pressed powder over it and a bronzer and I think I get a very natural look. This may not be the base for someone who likes a more "done up" look as its not very heavy, but I think as an everyday product it doesn't get any better.

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

        I have oily, sensitive skin and I LOVE this stuff! It doesn't cause breakouts, it provides even coverage, it blends easily and it diminishes the shine on my forehead. I mix the tan color with my Clinique skin tone corrector and I can fake a little bit of a suntan while enjoying the benefits of the SPF. I have an issue with perioral dermatitis and while it isn't enough coverage to handle a flare up at its worst, it will certainly cover a minor flare. I use this product as my foundation because I prefer a more natural look.

            So I REALLY wanted to love this. But it is just ok. I apply it in the morning and by early afternoon it already starts to crease. If you have oily skin, this isn't for you. I have tried everything and it just won't stay on. I do love how light-weight it is and how easy it is to apply. Looks fantastic when you first apply it, but a couple hours later it looks terrible. I would hardly call the primer in it a primer because it doesn't prime anything, not even itself!

              I loved the coverage and color of this product and it provides an even natural looking skin tone! I really wanted it to work! While I did not have a shiny, oily nose at any point during the days I wore it, it did settled into the fine lines around my mouth and on my forehead so I had to return it. I tried it with two different primers and got the same results both days. I would not recommend for oily skin gals who have trouble with bb creams/foundations settling into fine lines but if that is not an issue for you and your main goal is to not be shiny definitely worth a try!

                      I use the tarte bb tinted 12 hr primer in light and also the maracuja ceaseless concealer in light medium under my dark circles. I have rosacea and acne prone, combination skin with age spots, large pores and all that goes with being 60. Could you give me foundation choices that would give me more coverage and long lasting? I have been pleased with the tarte products and need all the help I can get for younger looking skin.

                        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.
