It’s no surprise to tell you that summer is in a scant 2 weeks. Whether it’s summer, fall, winter or spring though It Cosmetics has something special for you. Two of their newest products have made their way to Beauty Info Zone and we’re thrilled to share these with you. CC Creams are the newest craze and It Cosmetics knows what they are doing as you shall read today. Something even newer is their No. 50 Serum Anti-Aging Collagen Veil Primer and you are going to want this too once you read all about it next Sunday (we believe waiting is good for you). So sit back, relax, and start reading. Then get out your credit card so you too can have these delights.
When I found out that It Cosmetics had a CC Cream I was in total heaven. My favorite brand with one of the first CC Creams on the market. I knew I was in for a treat and I was right about that. I’m head over heels for this. The full name is Your Skin But Better™ CC+ and this is not hype!
What’s the difference between a BB Cream and a CC Cream you ask? (of course you did!) Well from my understanding a BB Cream gives you a light coverage that helps conceal and correct. It was originally considered a “blemish balm” which eventually became a “beauty balm”. A CC Cream has fuller coverage while still containing the best aspects of the BB Cream, it’s a step up the ladder. It’s less like a tinted moisturizer yet it’s lighter in texture than a foundation. It’s a multi-tasking product.
Let’s look at everything that It Cosmetic’s CC Cream has before I start gushing all over the place about my feelings!
1. SPF 50+ UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum sunscreen
2. This is a physical only sunscreen, it is not a chemical sunscreen.
3. It’s a full-coverage color-correcting cream, antiaging serum, and broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+ protection all in one fabulous package.
4. It was created with plastic surgeons to help you develop your best skin ever.
5. “The hydrating formula is infused with peptides; niacin; algae; vitamins A, C, B, and E; hyaluronic acid; and hydrolyzed collagen, along with antioxidants and exotic botanicals for brightening and color-correcting benefits.” (from IT Cosmetics via qvc.com)
Now why do I love It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better™ CC+? Because it applies like a dream and it wears beautifully. I’m getting all the best of the skincare world along with all the best of the color cosmetic world in one handy tube. I have a very uneven skintone and this corrects the way my skin looks the way a full coverage foundation would EXCEPT it’s lightweight and looks totally natural. It has the nicest quick scent of citrus that I notice when applying and then it’s fragrance free. Some days I set it with It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores powder while other days I leave it to be a little more dewy without anything over it.
Two more reasons why I’m in love: it doesn’t settle into those fine lines and the color stays true most of the day without running. But there is one strange thing that I learned when I was looking at all the amazing statistics about It’s CC+ Cream – it contains snail secretion as one of its main ingredients. When I first heard of this as an ingredient in Korean cosmetics (where this is made) I was a little grossed out but since then I’ve learned that it’s common because it’s a terrific moisturizer.
I could go on and on with stats etc. but why when I can sum it up in one word: GUSHING! Get yourself to QVC and pick which of the 5 shades are best for you. GUSHING!! — Marcia
