          I'm not someone who prefers to wear make up, but this product is worth the money & comfortable to wear. And for a majority natural woman like myself, I love the fact that this shade is seamless to my own shade.

                  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.

                                  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:

                                  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.

                                  Both products are suitable for oily skin, and both will help to reduce redness.

                                  This product features built-in broad spectrum SPF 35 for protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Please note that reapplication is necessary after prolonged sun exposure.
