Just didn't do it for me

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

      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!

          This is a great BB cream. It matches well with my skin tone, which I have trouble with because I'm so fair. It's also a good consistency and blends really nicely. If my skin is a little more dry one day I'll put on more moisturizer before applying the BB cream. I usually use it on my T zone plus under my eyes and blend into the rest of my face, and this is a great product for that. I can also build it up if I want more coverage.

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

          I have combination skin and this clung to every dry spot on my face. It will even out skin tone but the coverage is awful. You could see every imperfection. I was going to keep it as a primer but couldn't get over how dry it was.

                          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.

                          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!
