    Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

    I do not wear makeup (last time I wore makeup was 4/24/10 at my wedding!) as I break out WAY to easily & I'm lazy so I thought lets try this 1-step BB/CC stuff that is sweeping the market.
    It covers my freckled Casper white skin pretty decent, easy to apply with my fingers, doesn't need reapplying, easy to wash off, doesn't leave anything behind on the pillow as I am not a at night face washer...again with the lazy thing and never wearing makeup.
    The ONLY thing I would complain about is how 'sticky' it feels when I am in the sun/heat (I live in FL) it feels heavy but once in the AC or out of the sun I do not feel anything on my skin.
    In the end this product is very sheer, lightweight(ish) and great when not in 100% humidity!

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

      I decided to try a CC cream because I wanted something lightweight, but this isn't the sheer coverage I was looking for. It feels very heavy and greasy. 20 min after applying it melts right off! Even after setting with powder!

      I have only used the product for about 2 weeks. I will allow more time before I make a final judgement about the effectiveness of the CC cream. My main reason for purchasing it was for the SPF 35.

          This product is a waste of money. Provides no coverage, causes oiliness and breakouts - better off wearing nothing.

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

            This is the first time I've ever used any kind of face product (I am usually a mascara and eyeliner-only girl) and while I still don't use it everyday, I love that it provides a little color balance, blemish correction, and SPF when I do want to smooth out my complexion. Apply like face lotion and you are good to go. I just found a new addition to my very minimal make-up collection! And am OK with it! :)

            • Cooler Weather

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

            This product has a decent ingredient list which is important to me since I have very sensitive skin. However, the cream was still a bit too heavy and not very breathable. In the summer months (80F) I sweated right through it in minutes. It does blend well and have a great natural look but I only recommend it for cooler weather.

              I like that this is nice and light and helps with the fine lines that seem to be popping up these days. It gives a nice smooth coverage before I apply my usual makeup routine.

                I found this product to leave my skin very greasy looking. It didn't afford me any coverage at all.

                Great for everyday use, especially when you want a no fuss, easy look.

                PROS: Goes on smoothly and leaves a natural finish. Contains SPF yet still feels moisturizing. Covers fairly well but...
                CONS: Needs to be built up. Lasts only about 4 hours on me before product breaks down.

                I don't recommend this for a night out, but it's very useful for quick and natural daytime looks.
