Questions & Answers for Origins Smarty Plants™ CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector

water/sweat resistant
I am looking for something with very light coverage with SPF to use for vacation as my skin is not in that great of shape. But i dont want to look like I am wearing makeup. I was wondering how this would do in heat and humidity on dry-normal skin?

answer 1
This product would be great for that I think. That is the same reason I started wearing it. It provides good coverage but does not feel like a foundation. Very comfortable.

if it helps, I used it here in California in dry, hot weather. I sweated a little on my nose. Usually when this happens, make up accumulates next to my sunglasses/reading glasses, but with this product, i didn't get any accumulated make up so I looked like I wasn't wearing anything, and that my skin was just naturally radiant and flawless (which it is not)

My skin is dry and sensitive, and this product is perfect for light moisture in any weather condition. I don't like wearing makeup myself, it's great for a natural look with even tone.

I sweat a lot, and I find that if I'm laying out in the sun this does make my face sweat more than normal, but then again, so does wearing sunscreen. So I would give it the thumbs up :)

I live in Florida and I've found this product to be a bit on the greasy side for my taste. This leaves you looking like you have NO make-up on. Tinted moisturizers have more coverage than this. I have read reviews and this is a miracle for some. I think it really depends on the person's body chemistry with the chemistry of the product. I would go to Sephora and request a sample. The sample itself should last you through your vacation.

I would suggest using the Origins Dr Weil Mega-Bright line to reduce appearance of dark spots.

answer 2
I'm not an expert, but I doubt this would fade dark spots.

There is another origins product though:

This might do the trick, vitamin C is enormously helpful in evening out and brightening skintone. If you skip down to your local sephora and they have both of these products on the shelves you could play scientist and see how they behave together. The vitamin C booster is a powder that you can mix with your moisturizer. I don't know how it would behave if mixed with a CC cream but you could always try =)

I have dark spots/ scars from acne too. I use both of these products, albit not together, but I like both of them. Good luck!

The Smarty Plants™ CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector is a CC Cream that is used to Color Correct and provide natural coverage in place of a foundation. For dark spots, we suggest choose a Dark Spot Corrector instead.
