I have been trying the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ cream for a few months now and I thought it was about time i would share my thoughts about it.Hi Girlz,
It's available in a wider range of shades from light to dark.There are 5 shades available at Ulta.You can click here to see.I noticed in the ingredients list that it contains snail secretion as one of the top ingredients ,so i knew immediately that it will be moisturizing for my dry to combo skin.I picked up the small travel size of it from Ulta for $15. The price of the full size is $38 at ulta.I like the fact that the full size comes with a pump .Pump obviously is not available on the travel size,it comes in a squeeze tube.
Coverage and smell - This claims to be a full coverage color correcting CC Cream that contains an anti-aging serum and a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+ according to the brand.On me it had a medium coverage as i could see some redness peeking through .It has a subtle citrus scent.In the picture below i am wearing this CC cream .You can see it reflects light back in flash photography as it contains SPF.
Texture and application-It has a rich ,creamy and thick texture.
After first application it has a dewy finish but after sometime it dries further to a satin finish.I prefer my Real Techniques beauty sponge to apply this as my kabuki brush gives a very streaky finish with this product.The formula is emollient but i would still recommend priming the face for even application of the product as it has a thick texture. Even for drier skin ,i would recommend it to set it with a powder.In the ingredients List i could see a lot of ingredients including vitamins A, C, B, and E, and tons of other brilliant stuff for your skin ,but i did not like the fact that the list of ingredients was so long.As for the benefits to the skin,i did not see any miracle's happening.I have a sensitive,acne prone skin and i am extremely satisfied that it reacted well with my skin.
Medium was a perfect selection for my skin tone . For reference i am in the shade 155 in Makeupforever HD foundation.
Wear time- It stayed put on my combination skin (am very dry on the rest of my face except my T-Zone which is oily ) for around 3 to 4 hrs and that too in high humidity as i tried it in Tampa,FL after which my redness started peeking through all the more.
Final recommendation-Would recommend it for dry ,combination skin type as well as aging skin as it is extra moisturizing. Its definitely for days you just don't feel like wearing a foundation.. :)
That it for this post today,till my next,share love and stay blessed.Please share your experience with this product if you have tried it.Would love to hear from you girlz.Cheers,Rashi
