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

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.

            Love this matte BB cream! I mix it with my porefessional primer, for a more softer look. Defitinitely need to moisturize otherwise it could make your skin a little dry.

              I have been using this product for 5 years now and I prefer it over all other BB creams and primers. It is a little pricey but lasts a while and is well worth it. I wear it under my Smashbox foundation. Sometimes I wear it alone if I'm having a light makeup day.

                  I'm not sure what this is even for. it didn't cover any imperfection, didn't cover redness. took forever to set without a powder. it definitely it looks and feels like I only put a moisturizer on my face, but not a good one.

                      I was very excited to try this product since I've heard such great things about it. The coverage & color was good however when I was applying it to my face it's seem to dry very quickly before I could blend it all over my face and neck so I was having to use more products than I felt I needed to. For the price versus the size of it and how much I'd have to use I'd be going through it too often. I exchanged it for 'It cosmetics' BB cream and I'm so much happier with the coverage & blending. It's beautiful & gives me a flawless look, and people of been telling me I look like I'm glowing. Smash box just wasn't for me.

                        So i've been on the hunt for my GO TO BB cream. This is it. I tried the Tarte and Too Faced BB Creams and they just did nothing for me. Smashbox really has outdone themselves with this little wonder. I put it on with just a little powder over top and WOW, i instantly feel more confident. It's like magic! I have porcelain skin as I am a redhead, and the "Fair" shade is perfect. It doesn't make me look like a ghost, but yet it isn't too dark. It's just perfect. I will be buying over and over. Thank you Smashbox!

                            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.
