11:08 Jayyangg 0 Comments

I'm super excited to have been sent the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream! I remember first seeing this product adored by Emily Noel on youtube as Beauty Broadcast. Unable to get this product for years, I was super excited to hear that they were going to launch in August 2017 in Canada :D Finally, I'm going to get to review this much raved about CC cream :) I'm also very lucky that they gave me a 10% off discount code you can use on their Canadian website till Oct 31st 2017, so definitely take advantage of that! The shade I received was "FAIR" which is the lightest out of the 7 available shades. 

**This product was sent to me by It Cosmetics - however, I don't receive any compensation (including if you use the discount code ;) ) Also, my thoughts are honest and my own!

"Developed with plastic surgeons, CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ is your anti-aginghydrating formula infused with high-performance brighteningcolor-correcting and nourishing ingredients"

Delivers 7 Products, All in One: 
  1. Full Coverage Foundation
    1. Medium buildable 
  2. SPF 50 UVA/UVB Physical Sunscreen
    1. Yes
  3. Brightening Colour Correcting
    1. Brightening is hard to tell since my shade is way too light LOL Colour Correcting is also difficult as I don't have any red patches to correct.
  4. Hydrating Anti-Aging Serum
    1. Yes very hydrating and full of anti aging products like snail secretion
  5. Poreless Finish Primer
    1. Definitely will not make them disappear, but does make them seem not as obvious. 
  6. Dark Spot Concealer
    1. Medium buildable coverage - would not use this as concealer for major blemishes, but if you have slight hyper pigmentation this should be enough. 
  7. Moisturizing Day Cream
    1. Would not use this to replace my moisturizer, but I guess if your skin isn't too dry you could potentially skip moisturizer. 
It Cosmetics was developed with plastic surgeons, very similar background to how the BB Cream came to be. Additionally, with a little search I found that this CC cream is actually made in Korea! This would explain the ingredient list and ingredients. The second ingredient is Snail Secretion, which is commonly used in Korean skincare and known for its anti-aging and skin rejuvenation properties. I find that it has a very similar consistency like the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream, however that one has a bit better against oily skin + not as high coverage. 
Love the packaging: Yay for Pumps! Also, super travel-friendly 

Swatch of the shade It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream in Fair against NC30 (my hand looks so tan LOL)

Overall Thoughts: 

  • Price: $49 CAD
  • Durability: It doesn't have the longest wear time - I would personally reach for this product only when I know that I'd be out for 4-5 hours max. 
  • Skin Type: Highly recommend this product for those who have dry to combination oily skin (slightly oily). Those who have oily skin, best to skip out on this product because it doesn't have a whole lot of oil controlling properties. I personally will be using this more in the fall to winter vs summer. 
  • Coverage: Medium to full, depends on how you layer it. You could use this as a concealer if you don't have any severe blemishes. Personally, I found the texture slick and hard to build with a buffing brush. If you want to build coverage, best to use a beauty blender. 
  • Finish: Natural, glowy but not satin. Has a almost gel like texture (probably from snail mucus) and very moisturizing.
  • Smell: It has a light fragrance, almost like lavender but it disappears almost as soon as you apply it to your face. 
  • Finally, having the broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+ is a great bonus for those who are on the go and want a product that does it all - covers, protects and conceals!
Repurchase? Maybe

Rating: 8/10

Tips for picking your shade: 
  • Fair: NC15-20
  • Light: NC20-25
  • Medium: Nc 30-35
  • Wide color range
  • Skin care infused
  • Comes with a pump
  • Easy to Travel with
  • Moisturizing
  • Sunscreen SPF 50 + UVA/UVB
  • Doesn't strip my skin
  • Medium buildable coverage
  • Not very good oil control
  • Claims to be concealer as well - wouldn't use as one unless I have minor blemishes
  • Price: $49 CAD - pretty pricy for a CC Cream. For that price you can find similar products (ex: Missha  M Perfect Cover BB Cream, much cheaper but not as many skincare benefits, colors, but better oil control)
