Tarte Cosmetics BB tinted treatment 12-hour primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen - Review

January 24, 2013

The BB Cream reviews continue! This one is a little different than the other BB creams I have tried. Tarte has made a BB tinted treatment primer that will do multiple things. It is supposed to work as a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, anti-aging treatment and sunscreen. So did this BB product work for me? See my review below.

More information on the product performance from the Tarte website:
 Indulge and nourish your skin with tarte’s innovative BB tinted treatment which offers multiple skincare and makeup benefits in one eco-chic tube. This powerfully pure formula not only works as a skin-soothing treatment, but as a moisturizer, sunscreen, primer and foundation that visibly improves skin’s overall appearance for a youthful-looking glow. This 12-hour longwear, anti-aging, oil-free tinted treatment primer offers light-to-medium buildable coverage that helps even skin tone and conceals discoloration, acne and other skin imperfections. The creamy, silky formula goes on smooth, hydrates skin and blends easily leaving you with a natural, flawless finish while the broad-spectrum, chemical-free SPF 30 offers ideal protection from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays.

 My Review:
This has been one of my favorite BB products that I've tried. In the few weeks that I have used it, I noticed my skin being smoother and more even. Is this skin-soothing like it claims? I would say yes! My sensitive skin didn't freak out and I like that you don't need a lot of the product. The swatch I did above, was way more than I would use for my whole face. Even though it claims to be good enough as a moisturizer, I still used my usual skin care routine before putting this on. My skin is dry so I need the extra moisturizer.

You can use this product either on its own, or underneath your foundation. I tried it out both ways and I prefer either way just depending on what kind of coverage I need. When I have no time, I can throw this on and it is enough to cover. If I have more time and need more coverage, than I will use a foundation over. I have a little bit of hyper pigmentation on the lower right side of my face, and this covered it perfectly. I love that it's long-wearing and that it has SPF 30. This is a product I will be using through Spring and Summer since it has the protection I need from sun exposure.

I've tried a lot of different BB creams, and this one has to be one of my most favorite! 

Tarte Cosmetics BB tinted treatment 12-hour primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen retails for $34 and can be found on the Tarte website or Sephora website.
