    Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

    I absolutely love this product. It's a must have in my daily make up routine. It smells a little like sunscreen, but that doesn't bother me. I have red, inflamed skin, so this alone will not do the job. It's just my primer. But overall great product!

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

              I had to switch all my makeup to Almay because my ultra-sensitive skin started itching under my normal make-up. I bought this CC Cream to replace my Loreal BB cream. It's a little heavier than what I really wanted, more like true foundation than a light cream, but I am pleased with the sunscreen in it and the overall coverage. It's also non-greasy and doesn't make me shiny. Next time, though, I will switch from the CC cream to the BB cream in hopes that it is a little less like foundation.

              Causes Breakouts

              By Ariel S

              Verified Reviewer

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

              Cons: I'm not especially acne-prone with products, but this CC cream causes breakouts. After using it consistently for a week and a half new zits emerged like wildfire. This is not the first time this has happened with this product, and other users are having the same reaction. Hello 5 new pimples, and goodbye almost flawless skin! If you are prone to acne, play it safe and get something else.

              You will also probably need powder with this.

              Pros: The product has decent CC cream coverage, matches my skin pretty decently, and does not oxidize orange on me.

                  Bought this for my daughter to use for light summer coverage with a SPF.
                  Her skin looks flawless. Will continue to purchase. Also I purchased 2 different colors for her to mix since she is starting out fair but her color will gradually darken over the summer.

                  Last 4 hours, at most. HAS to be set with powder. There are better drugstore products out there

                    I use the product as a light foundation and sunscreen. The only drawback is it is hard to find a good color match for my complexion --- not enough choices of colors.

                    Physicians Formula CC+ has better coverage

                        Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

                        I have been searching for a good foundation and gave this a try, along with the Physicians Formula CC+. This one had hardly any coverage, while the Physicians Formula had quite a bit more coverage. However, neither one did all the things that it claimed to do. These CC creams deliver light coverage. I can see myself wearing this on hot sweltering days or to the pool as SPF or on days when I don't really want to do my makeup, but definitely not on date nights because it just doesn't have adequate coverage.
