    I was already using the Smashbox BB cream and couldn't wait to try the CC cream.. it was everything I had already loved about the BB cream and MORE! After using both products, I actually like the CC cream best. It is more hydrating and easier to blend for some reason. I also like the fact that it corrects pigmentation and spots in addition to covering them up.

      Comments about Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting:

      I love my Smashbox 15 hour foundation and wanted something less heavy. This CC cream can be difficult to apply since it's thick and you have to work with small sections at a time or use a foundation brush. It does even out skin tone really well. Seems to control oil slightly more than my usual foundation but the coverage doesn't last as long. I will not be purchasing again.

      So glad I found this product. I use it everyday for coverage and sunscreen protection. doesn't look like i'm wearing makeup but evens my skin tone and gives me confidence.

      When i said it doesn't stay on its because it does eventually wear off before i get home from work.

        Comments about Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting:

        I bought this at my local ulta store and was matched for a shade after talking to a very helpful employee. The employee I spoke to had recommended it to help with breakouts and adult-onset acne. I bought a bottle and fell in love the first time I used it. It is reccommended that you apply with your hands, after washing the of course, to "warm it into the skin." A little goes a long way and covers well. Is buildable so you can control the coverage. It has a smell, it doesn't bother me and I don't find it to be a bad smell but smells do bother some. My skin has evened out, become softer, I now rarely have breakouts, and my acne scars are becoming less and less noticeable. I love this product and will use forever. It is worth the price and lasts.

            Comments about Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting:

            I've been using this CC cream for about 3 months now. It has very light coverage and covers pores very well...but isn't heavy enough to cover blemishes at all. Personally, I just dab on some stronger concealer onto the blemishes I want to cover. The main strength of this CC cream is that it moisturizes and does not settle into / emphasize my fine lines on my forehead and around my eyes! It also, given how light weight it is, does not give any cakey or mask-like feel. Finally, I have had problems with acne breakouts after using some other BB and CC creams, and this one hasn't made me break out at all.

              This is great to use as a primer * light foundation in one step. You can also put fuller coverage foundation over it if you want more coverage. Keeps skin looking moist/natural without being oily.

                    I started using a cc cream by Clinique but Ulta does not carry it. I bought the Smashbox cc cream to replace it and was SOOO disappointed when I put it on for the first time:( It doesn't blend at all, it just sat on top of my skin and smeared around the more I tried to rub it on. It was streaky and had absolutely zero coverage. I could still see everything on my face- all my sun damage and acne marks. Don't waste your money, get the Clinique cc cream instead.
