It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream (C’mon it Cosmetics with the long name!) contains .406 fl. oz/1.08 f. oz. and retails for $15/$38. This CC cream is available in five shades ranging from “Fair” to “Rich”. You can find It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC at online retailers an it Cosmetics retailers nationwide. This CC cream receives a TON of hype online so of course I wanted to give this perennial beauty fave a whirl to see if the accolades were earned or not.
I have to say that the it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream is a hit AND a miss in my book. I’ll start with the hits! This CC cream goes on beautifully, wears flawlessly on its own, is lightweight, doesn’t settle into pores and mimics the look of skin. It does a FABULOUS job at blurring pores/fine lines and leaves a beautiful dewy finish. The coverage on its own is light to light medium and not really buildable. It wears for a good four to six hours on my skin alone but over primer and set with powder its the beast of the CC cream world: all day wear! I’ll have some minor splotchiness on the oiler parts of my skin at hour eight but otherwise it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream wears beautifully! This is a great alternative to wearing liquid foundation if your looking for light to medium coverage and SPF. Dewy skin is hot for Spring 2015 and the it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream is a great way to get the same results in one product versus using several different products.
It’s not all rainbows and unicorns with the it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream. My major gripe is not with the product itself but the ridiculous marketing claims. The packaging and the it Cosmetics website make some really amazing claims that their product just cannot possibly live up to. First, the it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream is touted to be your All In One product. I’ve even heard their rep on QVC claim: It’s all you’ll ever need. Que sideye… Really girl? After ten days of daily use I did not see softer, smoother skin, a reduction in wrinkles or smaller pores like their packaging claims. Last I checked there was no permanent way to minimize your pores.
it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream is supposed to cover “everything”. I still found myself using concealer under my eyes and on a laser surgery scar (which is barely noticeable on its own) because I wasn’t getting the coverage that I needed. Multiple layers of this CC cream just does not cut it. It Cosmetics also claims you’ll see a 179% increase in hydration IMMEDIATELY. I STILL had dry patchy skin in certain areas even when I didn’t set it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with powder. I dislike when a good product is slapped with a ton of obviously false “clinically proven results’ and unfortunately the it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream suffers from not meeting up to it’s own marketing hype.
Is it fabulousness in a tube? Yes, but is it the end all be all that it Cosmetics claims? Nope! I say ignore the insane claims on the packaging. You will absolutely need to use the it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with your other daily skin products. This is a PHENOMENAL product when used in conjunction with your daily lotions, potions and serums. Have you tried the it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream?
