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

    For someone with such an oily face (and easily clogged pores), I can say I'm incredibly impressed with this stuff. I tried it after seeing positive reviews, and initially it seemed mediocre, maybe even a little greasy. I discovered, however, that with a little TRANSLUCENT (tinted powder makes it seem cakey) setting powder by urban decay, it felt smooth and my complexion appeared naturally smooth with a healthy glow to it! The setting powder eliminates that initial over-moisturizer feel to it, so that combo rally did the trick. Overall, the stuff stays on my face all day, and establishes that perfect natural coverage for everyday wear.

    I used the other foundation by Smashbox and I prefer this one for every day use because it is so light! I don't even feel like I have foundation on, but it still covers my pores and red spots! I do wish it was a little cheaper!

        I'm new to wearing makeup in general but this was recommended by my best friend and I must say that I'm very happy with this buy. I was little a little hesitant to but the product 1. Because like I mentioned I dnt wear makeup and 2.the price got to me. But like they say you pay for what to get and I'm in love with this proclduct now. It's light easy to use and has enough coverage for me since I'm transition into full makeup. I purchased the dark shade and it goes well with my dark chocolate complexion. I've gotten several compliments on my skin and how good and healthy it looks when I wear this product. Love love love it.

          I had originally got a small sample of this product and liked it so much I had to buy it. It has just the right amount of coverage so I can throw on and go, or if I am going to a party it's lightweight enough to apply under my makeup as a primer. Great product. I used to look for the cheapest BB cream but be disappointed with the result. This product is not a disappointment.

                The jury's still out a little bit on this one. It's a little heavier than what I used to wear, but it also provides a more even look. So far so good.. been wearing it for about a week or so, and so far the heavier coverage hasn't clogged my pores or caused breakouts. I do also really like that it has a higher SPF than my old foundation!

                I was very excited to use this product. My skin is in good condition, but just wanted something light weight to even out my face. I washed my face and applied this product and the rest of my makeup. We went out for dinner, two hours later, I was home looking at a shiny face. This was even after applying face powder on top of the bb cream. I returned this product two days later feeling disappointed.

                    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:

                    A:

                    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:
