Today, I’m reviewing the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream. I’ve been testing it out for a little over a month and I absolutely love it! I originally picked it up because my skin was dry and this claimed to be hydrating. Also, since spring is here, the sun has been coming out more and this has a lot of SPF. I’m really happy that I happened upon it.
Its claims to be: color correcting, full coverage, 50 SPF, anti-aging and hydrating. That’s a lot of claims. Also, it states if you wear it out in the sun for a long period of time, reapply about every two hours.
The first thing that impressed me was the packaging.
It comes in the large tube, which holds 1.08 fl. oz. of product. The cap comes off, and it has a pump application, which I’m a huge fan of! The pump helps keep everything nice and neat. It also stops people for using too much product. The cap allows the product to stand on the pump area, so that even when you’re running low on the product, you can still get to it. Pumps that are at the top usually have a hard time getting the product, when it’s too low. It’s also travel friendly, because the cap prevents anything from pushing the pump in your bag.
So now the most important part: the application. I’m in the color Tan. First, I recommend not pushing the pump all the way. Instead, go halfway and add more when necessary. When I first used it, I pushed it all the way down, and ended up with way too much product. The way I apply it is by using my finger to dot it on my face, then I use a damp complexion sponge to buff it in.
It is definitely hydrating! I do apply moisturizer before, but sometimes I don’t, and it still holds up. I feel so much better wearing this through the day, especially when the sun is out because I know my skin is protected with SPF.
It says that it’s full-coverage, and I agree. But, it is definitely build-able. I can either go for a sheer look, where it just evens out my skin tone, or full-coverage, where all my blemishes are covered.
It stays on for a long time, about six to seven hours, but it does tend to get shiny/oily. I have oily combination skin, so that’s most likely why. I apply some setting powder to prevent that from happening. Also, it tends to smell like sunscreen for a couple minutes when you first put it on, but eventually fades away. That’s the SPF, and I don’t really mind the smell.
It is quite pricey. I bought it from ULTA for $38, but to me, it’s worth it! My skin has been having a hard time because the weather went from freezing and super windy, to really hot. It is oily, but now has more dry patches than usual. This CC-cream helps hydrate my dry spots and provides SPF protections, which I love. Definitely recommend! Have you guys tried it? If so, what do you think about it?
Thanks so much for reading!
