IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ is your full-coverage color-correcting cream, antiaging serum, and broad-spectrum SPF 50+ all in one! This highly pigmented, multitasking beauty miracle covers everything, won’t crease or crack in fine lines, and gives you a Your Skin But Better glow.
It Comseitcs’ new CC Cream has an SPF of 50 and is said to give you full coverage and a “your skin but better” glow. It is available in five (5) shades. The shade reviewed and depicted is Tan.
This CC Cream comes in an air-tight, partially opaque, plastic squeeze tube with a pump dispenser.
Tan is two (2) shades too dark for my NC 20-25 skin and will work well for those with NC 30-35 skin. Despite any fancy names and claims, this product isn’t anything more than a foundation with sunscreeen (don’t let names like CC or BB Cream fool you). This isn’t necessarily a bad thing–just remember isn’t not some radical or even new product.
This CC cream has a liquid formula that isn’t thick but also isn’t thin or watery. It leaves a dewy finish on the skin and imparts medium to heavy coverage. Those with oily or combination skin will want to blot and/or set this product with powder. But this product does leave a wonderful finish that makes the skin look smooth, even, and dewy.
This foundation also gives you effective, full-spectrum sun protection because of the titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. There are other good ingredients contained in this product too, like grape seed oil, Retinyl Palmitate, and avocado oil. But I have to bump the quality score for this face product down significantly because of the prevalence of skin-irritating ingredients. There are multiple citrus oils in the cream (lemon, grapefruit, bergamot, and lime) that should not go on the skin because of their photosensitizing properties (meaning exposing these ingredients to the sun will irritate the skin). For a product that is (a) supposed to go on your face and (b) encourages daytime use by having sun protection in it, it’s a bad idea to have so many citrus oils included.
Overall, I like the way this CC Cream looks on the skin and functions, but the inclusion of so many irritating ingredients is a big let-down.
Ease of Use: 9.25/10
The product dispenses cleanly from the pump, though I find that I sometimes have to depress the pump several times to dispense any product. The liquid formula spreads over and blends into the skin easily.
For $38.00 you get 1.08 ounces of product. This is a little less than average for the amount of product and slightly more expensive than average too.
