    Love this product! I've searched for a BB cream with a natural finish that provided decent coverage. This is perfect to wear alone during the summer months and stays in place. I use it over Benefit's Pore minimizer. It is definitely worth the $, as a little goes a long way!

    Even with a primer the cream sinks into my largish pores and looks spotty. I tried blending it with a lighter weight cream, same thing.
    Very disappointing considering the considerable price.

      I LOVE this bb cream from smash box! It's like the best alternative to a foundation for the summer or anytime during the year, it's so lightweight and gives A LOT of coverage. For best results I do set it after I apply it to my face with a setting powder.
      The only downfall I would have to say is that, this product is pretty pricy for the amount of product you get, but overall the quality is fantastic! I have oily combination skin, acne and acne scarring and this works for me. It doesn't break me out and overs my scarring pretty well.

          Comments about Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35:

          I purchased this before going on vacation because I wanted something that I could just slap on my face that had a good SPF and would hopefully keep the greasies away. This did NOTHING to control oil for me. I got oily within an hour or two (and I did NOT apply a separate moisturizer underneath).

          It has decent coverage, but somehow it managed to make me look older. I have good skin for my age (I'm 36) and people usually guess I'm 10 years younger. While I was using this, I started to notice that strangers were not reacting the usual way when they learned my age. It wasn't "Whoa!" anymore; just "oh". Then I caught sight of myself smiling in the mirror on my car's sun visor and realized the problem: This product does something very strange and very bad to my skin. I'm not sure if it's due to some kind of shimmer (I couldn't see any) or what, but it made my face look like it was covered in dry mud, if that makes any sense. It was almost like the surface of my skin was very dry so that when I smiled, very long creases formed all over my face. I wondered if maybe that was the way my skin always looked and I had just never noticed it before. But no, that was not the case. it was definitely because of this product.

          Needless to say, I returned it.

                  I have suffered from adult acne FOREVER. Tried every product and got this as a sample. I ended up at Ulta for the large size BB Cream that very same weekend. My skin has cleared up and no more breakouts! I definitely recommend this product:)

                  • Q:

                    Is this BB cream oil free? I LOVED the oil free tinted moisturizer that Smashbox used to make but they stopped when they came out with this product. It this truly oil free? No just without "mineral oils" but ANY oil? The oil free tinted moisturizer was one of the best products I have found - color, texture and it never caused me any breakouts. I'm just about to use up the last of the tubes of it that I had stocked up on when I heard it was going away so it's time to start thinking about as new one but I am concerned about break outs.
