IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer and Bye Bye Breakout Powder

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakcout Full Coverage Concealer and Powder

It doesn’t seem to matter how old I get. Wrinkles? Check. Oily skin? Check. Blemishes? Check. Yes, someone up there has one heck of a sense of humor. I thought by this age I would at least be done with the zits. But nooooo. My blogging partner Marcia was blessed with much nicer skin than I have, so she happily gave me the Bye Bye Breakout products to test – the Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer and the Bye Bye Breakout Powder.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakcout Full Coverage Concealer

The Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer ($28) is a creamy concealer in a jar with a doe foot applicator. This isn’t a concealer for dark undereye circles, although I will make a major confession – I am forever running late so I have been known to use this to conceal whatever needs covering up at the moment. It certainly does conceal, but it’s more of a medium concealer, not full coverage.

It also doesn’t make those blemishes super dry and cracked, which is what I was a little afraid of – ever try drying lotion? I was wary, thinking it might be similar and I thought how in the world could I go through the day with something like that on my skin for everyone to see?? But it’s nothing like that. Ingredients include anti-aging peptides and hydrolyzed collagen, plus oil-absorbing zinc oxide, kaolin clay, witch hazel, tea tree, sulfur and a gentle AHA/BHA complex.

There are seven different shades from which to choose. I like Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Concealer for my localized breakouts, and I think it works even better in tandem with Bye Bye Breakout Powder.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Powder

The sister product to the Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer is the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Powder ($28), a loose powder that absorbs oil and keeps you shine-free while also preventing new breakouts. There are lots of great ingredients for doing so, including zinc oxide, kaolin clay, witch hazel, colloidal oatmeal, tea tree, sulfur as well as an AHA/BHA complex.

My breakouts are typically localized – I will get one or two on my chin or by my nose. The loose powder is meant to go over the concealer to really finish it and give an airbrushed look, as well as provide more treatment for the inflamed area. Hence, the price – $28 is rather expensive for a loose powder, especially for one that is relatively small when you compare it to the jars offered by other lines, which are about twice the size. But the ones from other lines are basically cornstarch and filler, not treatment, which is why they are cheaper and you get lots more. Now, if you are very blemish prone you can certainly use this as a full face finishing powder and it will do a beautiful job. Just know that since it’s also a treatment product, it’s going to be a bit more expensive for you.

The shades available are Translucent, Light/Medium, and Tan/Rich. I had to swatch them quite heavily because the shades are actually quite forgiving. Basically, Translucent will work for anyone up to slightly darker than medium skin. If you have medium skin you will probably want the medium shade, and anyone darker than medium should go with the Tan/Rich shade.

I am a huge believer in multi-tasking. If I am going to have products on my face while they are covering up blemishes why not also be treating them and preventing new ones from popping up? That sort of logic definitely speaks to me! You can find Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer , Bye Bye Breakout Powder, and other IT Cosmetics products online and at Ulta stores.  – Lisa

    I have just started getting a blemish on my chin once in awhile, so when I saw the topic of this post I knew it spoke to me. I use IT CC foundation so will definitely will try this product.

    I love products that multitask. If I can kill two birds with one stone- then I am all for it. 28 dollars for a loose powder is pushing it a bit though, I will admit.

    Waaw,. I have super oily acne prone skin,.. That too due to hormonal issues, I have quite a few active acnes,.. I will check this concealer and powder,.. thank you for the mini review,..

    I’ll remember these to recommend to others!

  5. Lola Seicento | 20th Sep 17

    These look absolutely perfect to both treat and conceal breakouts!

  6. Judy | 20th Sep 17

    I like that these don’t have salicylic acid. IT is such a rosacea-friendly line I would have been surprised if it did but also would have understood the need to accommodate all types of skin. I’d be curious to try the powder on my face, which is a hot mess from pregnancy hormones!

  7. Kristina | The Feminine Files | 20th Sep 17

    These have great coverage! I actually can’t wait to try them on my next breakout lol.

  8. Jen Mathews | 20th Sep 17

    I love the Bye Bye Breakout concealer! I do wish there was a fuller coverage version though.

  9. Stacie Hamilton | 20th Sep 17

    It’s great that they came out with this product. I get an occasional breakout so it’s good to know that this multi-tasking product covers well without the dry cracking look.

  10. Cindy (Prime Beauty) | 20th Sep 17

    I love the idea of a treatment concealer!

  11. Polarbelle | 21st Sep 17

    i could sure use a treatment concealer right now.

  12. Bailey | 21st Sep 17

    I love the idea of a concealer formulated for breakouts, and this sounds really great!

  13. CosmetopiaDigest | 21st Sep 17

    Being well within the breakout-zone, I should definitely check out this line!

  14. Phyrra | 21st Sep 17

    I wonder how it would work on my break outs from rosacea.

  15. Babi | 21st Sep 17

    I’ve been looking for a new concealer and it looks like they may have my shade! Yay!
