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

    I have melasma (aka the "pregnancy mask" which is spotting of a change in pigmentation on your face) so to even it out, I need a good product that will even out my skin tone. I use this everyday but I mix it in with my moisturizer in my hand, that way it's not too heavy or dark going on and it helps it blend nicely on your face. I basically use it to tint my moisturizer

    I don't spend a lot of money when it comes to makeup - I try to find what works the best and has the best quality and products that go a long ways.

    Because I mix a little with my moisturizer, the bottle really goes for a while. Even when it's close to empty it still lasts a few more weeks.

                    I struggle with finding a lightweight coverage that I like. This BB cream is great in that it is not too heavy, but still gives me the coverage I am wanting. I have it in three different shades- spring, summer, and fall skin tone! :)

                      I love this product. I've been using it for four years now. It provides a great alternative to foundation if all you need is a light coverage. It's a good substitute for powder. I must admit that I have a fairly uniform complexion so this may not be for everybody.

                        I went in looking for a bb cream and found this product. Its the perfect shade, blends well, and looks like I barely have anything on. My face doesn't feel as it it's covered in make up since this provides such a light feel, I often forget I'm wearing it. While it is a little bit pricier than my usual make up purchases, this was definitely worth it.

                            Medium/Dark is recommended as the most suitable shade for those with medium-to-dark complexions such as yours. This shade can be tested at your nearest ULTA Beauty store to ensure it is your perfect match:

                            This product is formulated for all skin types. It controls oil and minimizes shine, but it is not designed to treat acne. If you are seeking an acne-fighting primer, we recommend Photo Finish More Than Primer Blemish Control, which is formulated with 2% salicylic acid to help eliminate blemishes and keep skin clear:
                            http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod5580075

                            You can certainly layer CC Cream over Blemish Control for a clear & flawless complexion.

                            To correct acne scarring, we suggest using Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting, which visibly fades existing dark spots, sun spots and post-acne marks:
                            http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod5220125

                            Both products are suitable for oily skin, and both will help to reduce redness.
