      This product is a waste of money. Provides no coverage, causes oiliness and breakouts - better off wearing nothing.

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

        This is the first time I've ever used any kind of face product (I am usually a mascara and eyeliner-only girl) and while I still don't use it everyday, I love that it provides a little color balance, blemish correction, and SPF when I do want to smooth out my complexion. Apply like face lotion and you are good to go. I just found a new addition to my very minimal make-up collection! And am OK with it! :)

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

        This product has a decent ingredient list which is important to me since I have very sensitive skin. However, the cream was still a bit too heavy and not very breathable. In the summer months (80F) I sweated right through it in minutes. It does blend well and have a great natural look but I only recommend it for cooler weather.

          I like that this is nice and light and helps with the fine lines that seem to be popping up these days. It gives a nice smooth coverage before I apply my usual makeup routine.

            I found this product to leave my skin very greasy looking. It didn't afford me any coverage at all.

            Great for everyday use, especially when you want a no fuss, easy look.

            PROS: Goes on smoothly and leaves a natural finish. Contains SPF yet still feels moisturizing. Covers fairly well but...
            CONS: Needs to be built up. Lasts only about 4 hours on me before product breaks down.

            I don't recommend this for a night out, but it's very useful for quick and natural daytime looks.

              First time using CC cream. I found it was easy to apply, blended well, covered imperfections & had a lightweight feel, however my face was a bit oily after application. The tube I got seemed to separate even after shaking & kneading. Doesn't smell bad but doesn't smell great either. Not a product for me unfortunately.

                I'm scaling back on how much I spend on beauty. This is comparable to Clinique's CC cream at one-third the price. This is my second purchase of this product and I'm happy with it. I'll continue to buy it.
