Product Review—Makeup: Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting–Brown Girl Must-Have

Product Review—Makeup: Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting–Brown Girl Must-Have

It’s not too often a beauty product comes along that I take an immediate liking to. Often, products sound amazing in print, (kind of like reading a resume of a potential Mr. Right) until you actually have the sensory experience with the product. I recently received Smashbox CC cream and was thoroughly thrilled about trying it, because, 1. I already love Smashbox Sheer Focus tinted moisturizer  and 2. I’ve been enjoying other CC creams that I tried.
Here are the details on Smashbox CC Cream:
Smashbox CC Cream MediumWhat it is:
A CC cream that fades imperfections, evens complexion, and prevents future discoloration.What it does:
Makeup with the benefits of skincare? Yes, please! This color-correcting cream is a game-changer with its proven ability to visibly lessen the appearance of dark spots, sun spots, and post-acne marks instantly and over time. The advanced, lightweight formula neutralizes and brightens skin for a more even complexion, while it primes, perfects, protects with SPF 30, moisturizes, and controls oil. CC the difference!
What else you need to know:
This product is available in five shades.
Why I love it:
tracey smasbox cc creamThe moment I squeezed Smashbox CC Cream (in medium) fom the tube onto my hand, I knew I had a winner. The consistency of the formula is dead-on for a tinted moisturizer, but upon applying this CC Cream, the coverage was exponentially better than any tinted moisturizer I have previously used.


My skin didn’t look like I was wearing foundation, but it looked “perfected.”  My pores and imperfections were diminished and the color match was just about perfect. My skin looked bright and refreshed.  And I’m never bright and refreshed…  I’m a brown girl, and finding the a match in the light-medium-dark world of cosmetics is challenging at best.  However, over the years I have found that medium to medium dark in Smashbox have been on point with matching my medium brown skin.


I have worn Smashbox CC Cream on several occasions with much joy, as I can fake looking amazing with just a squeeze.  And, I have used it as a prep for major makeup application.  It allows me to use only a dot or two of foundation in the center of my face for a total flawless complexion.


I cannot attest to the dark spot correction capabilities, as I have not used it long enough yet, but I don’t really care.  I love this CC Cream as is.  Amazingly enough, it covers my dark spots almost completely without added concealer.  LOVE!

My daughter who is using Smashbox CC Cream in Dark is having the same wonderful experience as well.
