Questions & Answers for Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting

Question
will this product work on dry skin?
I noticed the words "and controls oil" after purchasing. I do not have oily skin. Will this product work on dry skin? All the other benefits are exactly what I need.
Your advice is appreciated.

My skin changes from normal to dry during the winter. I bought this a few days ago and love it so far. It works fine on my dry skin, but I do put on my regular moisturizer first.

I have dehydrated and dry skin, and it works on me. When I am feeling a little more dry, I add a couple drops of Tsubaki oil, and it gives me that extra radiance boost when I need it.

answer 2
Yes, this does contain silicone. The most common silicones in cosmetics are cyclopentasiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, dimethicone and phenyl trimethicone. Since dimethicone is one of the first ingredients listed, this is certainly a silicone-based product. I checked a few ingredient lists and I may be wrong (since I didn't check them all) but I'm pretty sure Smashbox does not make a silicone-free primer. The best bet to find one is to ask for ingredients lists and look for the aforementioned words, or anything with the suffixes "-siloxane," "-cone" or "-conol."
(*side note: Silica is not a silicone. It is actually a natural product, whereas silicone is man-made. It is best known as "sand" but is also found naturally occurring in the human body).

Hi!
This product acts not only as a dark spot corrector, but also has the coverage of a medium foundation.
I suffer from moderate/severe redness in my cheeks, and I would say that this covers about 85% of redness with ease.
For full coverage, I would recommend using a foundation over the areas of redness, if the cc cream alone does not deliver enough.

Good Luck!

It will reduce redness somewhat, but not completely take it away... this product doesn't offer a ton of coverage, but it does ok under a medium coverage foundation. If you're trying to cover redness from acne or rosacea, a color correcting primer (green fixes red) will do a much better job.

I found that this neutralized my redness in my nose area and under my eyes but overall this cream is pretty sheer and doesn't provide much coverage. So I guess it depends on how red your skin is, and probably why (not sure this would cover acne very well, for example).

In my experience with them both, I feel like the CC cream provides more coverage, yet feels lighter on the face. The BB cream can feel slightly heavy on your skin. The BB cream doesn't really have any benefits for your skin, other than that it keeps it moisturized. The CC cream claims to fades the appearance of dark spots over time.
