Real Style Tries Smashbox’s Camera Ready CC Cream

If you have been in any beauty or cosmetics stores lately chances are you have noticed a surge in what are called BB and CC creams. If you aren’t familiar with these products yet, they are basically enhanced tinted moisturizers as they provide added skin-care benefits to your standard cream. CC creams specialize in colour correcting to reduce the appearance of dark spots and redness for overall flawless skin. While there are hundreds of options on the market, we tried out Smashbox’s new Camera Ready CC Cream SPF 30- Dark Spot Correcting to see if it is worth all the hype.

Smashbox claims to have mastered complexion-perfecting skincare with their multi-benefit cream infused with SPF 30 for sun protection. The formula contains Vitamins C and E to brighten and even skin tone, as well as to boost natural collagen production to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also enriched with fruit extracts to brighten skin and reduce inflammation.

What did we think? We have tried other CC creams before, but we really liked the lightweight feel of this one. At first glance we thought the pigment was very orange, but when we applied it the colour really toned down and went on evenly. It is perfect to use on a day when you are looking to wear minimal makeup as it provides just a little amount of colour while moisturizing your skin and providing sun protection. It is also great with some powder on top for a little more coverage. A little does go a long way, but what’s great is that it did not leave any oily residue.
