          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.

                              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:

                              Light/Neutral may be your best match, though we do suggest visiting your nearest ULTA store to test this shade to ensure it is perfect for you:
