The average person spends 227, 760 hours asleep in their lifetime…that is almost 26 years! I am a multi-tasker so if I am going to be spending that much time snoozing, I am happy to also be working on getting better skin at the same time. Of course we spend more years awake, so why not maximize that time as well? IT Cosmetics has the skin care to keep skin working efficiently 24/7 with their Confidence in a Cream™ and their Confidence in Your Beauty Sleep Night Cream.samples, affiliate links
Confidence in a Cream™ is a day and night moisturizer that seems to do everything. It moisturizes thirsty skin, giving it a nice glow; it tackles skin texture and leaves it feeling smooth; it evens out skin tone; it reduces the look of pores.
What’s inside to help create all of these skin miracles is a little something IT Cosmetics calls their Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate.Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate, which includes collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal. I love the texture of this incredible mix of ingredients. It’s thick and fluffy and it feels decadent when applied. It does have a scent that I can’t quite put my finger on…I don’t particularly like it, but it’s light and it dissipates quickly.
I find that when I use this in the morning (and I never forget to also apply this liberally to my décolleté) I don’t need a primer.
Does it work? Yes it does. IT Cosmetics did a clinical study and check out these results:

Ulta has this beautiful cream in a travel size for $17 and in a 2 oz size for $49. Confidence in a Cream is a terrific moisturizer with an elegant formula that your face and décolleté will love, especially if you tend towards dry skin.
IT Cosmetics doesn’t stop there, thanks to their latest skin care release Confidence in Your Beauty Sleep Night Cream – Skin-Transforming Pillow Cream Moisturizer (2.0 oz. $54.00).
Confidence in Your Beauty Sleep is designed to work on your skin as you sleep, which is actually the time when your skin reaches the peak of cell turnover. It tackles the five biggest indicators of aging skin: fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, dullness and loss of firmness. One night’s sleep is all you need for improvement in moisture retention and skin texture. After a week the results are even more noticeable, with a reduction in fine lines thanks to the skin plumping effect.
The texture of this moisturizer is really interesting. It has something called MemoryBounce Technology, so when you stir it up it holds that shape for a bit, then goes back to a sleek flatness. It’s kind of fun to just play with it because it has an interesting elasticity. The moisturizer has a light lilac shade and it smells of lavender. Some will love it, others will not…lavender is a great scent for relaxation and sleep and I’m sure that’s why IT Cosmetics chose it. But for those who aren’t fond of the scent, this isn’t for you because the lavender definitely lingers. The main ingredients in the moisturizer are ceramides and hyaluronic acid, both of which are excellent for hydration and skin repair.
Just smooth a small amount on skin before bed and then let the cream do all the work as you get your beauty sleep. The texture actually wraps around skin cells, so no need to worry about getting moisturizer all over your pillow. There’s no greasiness or wetness, so no wait time after application.
I love Confidence in Your Beauty Sleep for dry winter skin. In the morning my skin looks very happy – hydrated, rested, and glowy. I am hoping that IT Cosmetics will come out with an unscented version, because then I could say that this lovely moisturizer is perfect for everyone.
