With all the hype around the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream, I just had to see what all the fuss was about. While I’m happy with my Rachel K CC Cream Renew, Hera Complete Care CC Cream, Etude House Correct & Care CC Cream, Chanel CC Cream – Complete Correction Sunscreen, and Banila Co. IT Radiant CC Cream, I got curious and swatched the IT Cosmetics CC Cream at Ulta before purchasing. For helpful YouTube videos, check out Michele1218’s Quick Mommy Makeup and Glowy Skin Tutorial and MakeupByTiffanyD’s Spring/Summer Foundation Routine.
IT Cosmetics describes the Your Skin But Better CC Cream as “an all-in-one multi-tasking beauty miracle that truly gives full, flawless, perfect coverage, protects your skin with SPF 50+ from the harmful rays of the sun and is clinically proven to improve skin texture and hydration.” This “anti-aging hydrating formula is infused with peptides, niacin, algae, vitamins A, C, B, E, hyaluronic acid, and hydrolyzed collagen along with anti-oxidants and exotic natural botanicals for long-term brightening and color-correcting benefits.”
“Packed with anti-aging ingredients that is clinically proven to improve skin,” and it works with both a “full coverage color correcting cream…and anti-aging serum” as an all-in-one product. Much like most Asian CC Creams out on the market, the skincare benefits of CC creams is a major part of the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC. It is also “infused with cutting edge anti-aging technology and is clinically proven to improve skin texture, brightness and increase skin hydration by 79%.” Currently, the word around the blogosphere is that this CC provides impeccable coverage without looking cakey and thick. Many people have claimed that their skin tone and and texture have improved as well.
A little bit of this product goes a long ways, so about half a pump is good enough for your entire face. I buff this product on either with my hands or a synthetic buffing brush — like the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush or the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. Coverage is truly flawless and smooth on the skin. It sinks right in without being too matte, dry, or flat; and, there’s a glowy quality to it without looking oily.
I chose the shade “Fair,” which is the first and lightest shade in the range of five colors. It leans heavily on the yellow side, but seems to balance out my skintone and redness on some parts of my face really well. It conceals pores, lines, and pigments well without looking like too much. The added skincare benefits help with my skin’s irritation as of late. As we transition into much warmer temperatures here in Texas, my skin has been a bit bipolar lately, so I find that this CC cream is very soothing.
I’d recommend this CC and find that IT Cosmetics is a line that I’ve become more interested in. Next on my list is the Celebration Foundation Illumination, which I’ve heard/read a lot about as well. Stay tuned for my future purchase on that and my upcoming review on the Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer.
