Quick post today, ( I think we all enjoy a quickie) ?! I just wanted to share my experience of the itCosmetics CC Cream.
So firstly why I bought it? Well I was attracted to the fact that it was a CC cream (Colour Corrector Cream) that can replace your medium/ full coverage foundation. Also it’s seems to be on everyone’s wish list right now!
Not only does it contain hyaluronic acid, vitamins and antioxidants but it has a SPF of 50! Which is amazing!!! Did you know that the #1 thing that ages our skin is the UVA / UVB rays so you know – protect yo self!
So what’s it like on? As you can see by the pictures it has a beautiful luminous finish. However first time I used it I applied far too much! Honestly a little goes along way. The coverage is medium to full so it really does stretch. I’ve found if I use too much it get’s quite “shiny” and also it can transfer (rub off against clothing etc ). So less is definitely more!
Who would I recommend this for? Someone who is concerned about their skin health, and wants to cover redness or dark spots, again the coverage is great! This is a beautiful product, however this product is quite creamy and luminous so if your prone to shine you might not like it?
I would recommend this product for someone who has quite normal/ balanced skin. If your very oily I don’t think this would work for you? But this is just me making an educated guess so like everything “take it with a pinch of salt”.
Lastly I like to apply this over skin that has been cleansed and hydrated, I recommend using a moisturiser that is high in water and has no oil otherwise it’s going to be a greasy mess. Also make sure you let your moisturiser soak in a few minutes beforehand!
I personally have combination normal/ oily skin so the best way I find to use this is the apply a pea sized amount with my hands. I massage it well into the skin and even sometimes bounce a damp beauty sponge over it to pick up any excess product.
If I want a fuller coverage then I’ll use a brush and be careful to set my tzone with a translucent powder.
One last thing I wear the shade Medium Tan, so that’s it for now any questions or better still have you tried this product? I’d love to hear!
Until next time,
