I would like to create the same look that the filter ‚Spring‘ in Photoshoo Express does, it lightens but also smoothens out and something else which I am not sure what it all does. I am happy to purchase an action that would also do the same in PS CC. The pictures shows a photo after and before using the filter, just to show what it does.... Thanks

This is a fairly basic effect that would do you well to learn how to do without an action, because you might decide once you know how that you would want to do it differently to create your own look.
Hard to tell without a full-res shot, but looks like they do a little duplicate layer with a gaussian blur with some blending mode on it, maybe soft light and some transparency. I can't tell if they add magenta to the shadows or if it's just accentuating the magenta already there through the blending mode. Either way, learning how to create your own looks is always a good thing, and copying other peoples actions manually can be educational.

This is an extreme use of the filter, maybe that shows it a bit better what the filter does...

It seems to blur but leaves the eyes out and lighten up.... the eyes
