I’m a Bye Bye lady. I love my IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Products. On my bathroom counter are the things I use most. If you came by you’d see Bye Bye Undereye and Bye Bye Pores. Well these two items now have a companion with It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness. (This was sent for review consideration.)
As soon as I saw that It Cosmetics had created this I was intrigued. I’m lucky enough not to have rosacea but that doesn’t mean I don’t have splotchiness on my face. That splotchiness is always red so having a solution to this is something I’ve been looking for. What Bye Bye Redness does is camouflage the red tones on your face which can be from a variety of things like broken capillaries, blemishes, rosacea etc.
When I first opened this I thought I’d opened a jar of foundation. It has a similar consistency to some of the foundations that I have in jars. But this is more densely pigmented since it has a job to do. It needs to cover while still keeping your skin looking like you aren’t wearing foundation. It’s considered to be a neutralizing correcting cream.
The “official” name of this is Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Correcting Cream. That explains it all. It’s a lightweight formula that’s infused with “color correcting and red canceling pigments to camouflage red-toned skin discolorations from roasacea, broken capillaries, blemished skin, irritated skin, sun damage and more.” The formula includes colloidal oatmeal, aloe, avocado and chamomile to help with inflated and/or irritated skin. It also contains peptides, collagen and hyaluronic acid to keep skin soft, supple and radiant. It Cosmetics tells us that this is a universal shade that adjusts to your body chemistry to create the coverage.
If you buy this from QVC it comes with the cutest little kabuki brush and holder for $39.50, if you buy it from the IT Cosmetics website it costs $32 alone. As much as I love this little brush since like all It Cosmetics brushes it’s wonderfully soft and effective, I find that it gives me a slightly heavier application than I prefer. I’ve worn Bye Bye Redness as a foundation though and the brush was perfect. But the ideal way for me to wear this is to spot treat and use my finger. I put the tiniest bit on my index finger and dab it on the red areas. Then I blend it in with my fingers thinning it out. I love to use it this way. It evens out my complexion because I’ve used it just where I need to cover red. When I apply foundation or BB Cream over this I use my Beauty Blender sponge since that doesn’t move Bye Bye Redness around, you just bounce the sponge over your foundation. A perfect combination is born.
My suggestion is to buy this the first time from QVC so that you get that holder that will look adorable on your vanity plus the great mini kabuki for only $7.50 extra and then when you need more Bye Bye Redness to buy it directly from IT Cosmetics website and save money. That gives you the best of both worlds! Speaking of the best remember that It Cosmetics is made in the USA, it’s paraben free, talc free, sulfate free, cruelty free, hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic! That’s a mouthful but a good one. It Cosmetics has created another winner. — Marcia
