    I use this everyday when I don't have time to put on a full face of makeup (very often). The best thing about it is the convenience. High SPF for a BB and doesn't leave you looking pasty, good coverage, natural look. Easy peasy for people who don't have time for shenanigans.

        I used to use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer religiously, however, I have found this to be better. I don't like heavy foundation and this is perfect with just enough coverage to provide a flawless look over my pores. I would recommend this to anyone looking for that smooth, flawless finish.

            I never use to bat an eye at the cost of products like this when I was working full time and our household income was six figures, but since becoming a "starving artist" (said with a smile) and since my husband retired last year, I'm a bit more careful where my cosmetic money goes. But THIS product, combined with any of the Smashbox Photo Finish products, are worth every penny. I can't remember the last time I wore foundation. These two items blend well together and are pretty much all I ever use any more. And while seemingly pricey, you don't need much and they tend to last, so the value is there.

            Love it! I have dry skin and this keeps me looking fresh and glowing all day long, not dry and cakey. The only downfall is the price... it definitely isn't cheap. But a little goes a long way, so it lasts quite a while. It's worth the money. I use it every day and constantly get comments on my beautiful skin.

              This product is really great. I am able to apply with my finger tips for an even, natural looking finish. I have really oily skin so I usually have to use blotting papers halfway through the day, but not with this product. It is not as heavy as a foundation and I haven't experienced any breakouts from this even though I have sensitive skin. All in all, this is a great buy, I definitely recommend it.

                I recently moved from Minnesota to south Texas and found that my clay based foundations were too heavy for the hot weather. I like a medium to heavy coverage. I feel this BB cream is light but covers well and is perfect for the weather.

                      Camera Ready BB Cream is great for all seasons and improves skin moisture in 4 weeks, guaranteed, though if your skin type is dry, we suggest using a moisturizer prior to application of BB Cream. Smashbox does not provide exact wear time, since this may vary by skin type and environment, but it is formulated to be very long lasting!

                    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.
