This is a reader/guest review of Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream. Thanks, Natalia for the review!
I am absolutely in love with Camera Ready BB Cream by Smashbox. BB cream is a state of the art cream from Asia that acts as a foundation, concealer, moisturizer and primer. This product has coverage you can build upon, so if you have any acne scarring, blemishes, or other imperfections, you can simply rub in more cream. I tend to use this product with a medium coverage that effortlessly smoothes out my face.
Smashbox's BB cream is creamy and smooth for easy application and I love how it makes the skin glow. Unlike foundations and powders, BB cream does not dry up even the most sensitive skin. Instead, it will hydrate and nourish dry skin, maybe even improve it after a few months of use. My dry skin is no longer a problem once I started using this cream, it is very nourishing. This light cream also has SPF 15 in its ingredients, so its the perfect product to wear even during the hot dog days of summer. After wearing it for a few weeks, I noticed it also absorbs your face's natural oils so it won't get greasy during warm days.
Camera Ready BB Cream is available in 5 different color shades. I use the fairest shade and it blends in nicely with my porcelain complexion, you can't even tell I'm wearing makeup. I have only one concern about this product, I needed to touch it up after about 5 to 7 hours during the day. The cream might wear off a bit if you are out and about, so you might want to take it with you in your purse. Its small and compact size is perfect for travel. If you prefer, you can also dab a small amount of powder on your face to let it stick better.
Overall, Smashbox's Camera Ready BB Cream is an amazing experience for those that want to try a new kind of makeup that will replace their foundation and concealer completely.
