Lately I have been using a great combination of products that have made my skin super happy…which then helps my confidence in general. My trio includes IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream, Confidence in a Compact, and the Skin Smoothing Complexion Brush.
IT Cosmetics sent me a whole slew of shades of the Confidence in a Compact, as well as the cream and brush, which is what got me onto my quest for confidence. Here’s some general info and what I find works so well for me.
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, especially when I use the Confidence in a Compact as my foundation.
Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+ is a solid serum foundation that provides all the benefits of the Confidence in a Cream Moisturizer with a full coverage foundation. Plus, it has full sun protections with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB physical sunscreen.
Fair: porcelain skin; fairest of the fair
Light: if you have a bit more warmth to your skin
Medium: light to medium skintones
Medium Tan: if you have a warm or golden-medium skintone
Tan: tan skintones
Rich: tan to rich skin with golden tones
Deep: rich to deep skin with a warmer tones
There is a learning curve with this foundation. At first I was using way too much, and it settled into my fine lines and wrinkles. This is such a rich foundation that you only need a small amount. Start with a tiny bit and then build from there. The right amount buffed in properly gives me incredibly glowy skin with an even skin tone. To buff it in, I use my third find from IT Cosmetics – the Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush.
This brush is wonderfully soft, but it has enough density to keep it firm. The cut is excellent – it buffs the foundation into every nook and cranny, hugging the contours of your face so the end result is darn close to an airbrushed look. The foundation compact comes with a sponge, but I recommend using the Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush for the absolute best results.
I am loving these three complexion confidence boosters from IT Cosmetics — what are some of your favorites? – Lisa
