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.

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!

Clear skin in 28 days with Oxy – or your money back!

Oxy 28 Day ChallengeSponsored post

A few weeks before my youngest daughter’s birthday that put her into teenager status, she came to me all excited…she had her first pimple! We totally celebrated that small bump, welcoming her to the beginning of womanhood. I assured Annie there would be lots more of those bumps to come, and told her she was SO lucky, because we have terrific skin care available to keep them in check. I wanted her to have a great outlook on the changes that are happening to her body and know that all of the changes are something to be excited about because she has a lot of control in areas we never used to have before.

Now that Annie’s hormones have really started to go into overdrive, producing far more oil and sebum than her skin can handle, we are both so happy she started with OXY at the sign of her first breakout. She began her Oxy 28 Day Challenge and has come through with pretty amazing skin. The helpful OXY 28 Day Challenge App has been incredible for her, too – being new to this teen skin care stuff, it’s kept her right on track.  

Oxy 28 Day Challenge app

The OXY 28 Day Challenge is simple – just download the OXY® 28 Day Challenge app, answer some questions to get your customized product recommendations, then head to your local drug store to pick up what you need. Use the products for 28 days straight, and if you aren’t happy with the results, OXY will refund your money no questions asked. Not that you will need a refund – my daughter’s skin has never looked better.

Annie used these products – OXY Maximum Action Rapid Treatment Face Wash, 3-in-1 Treatment Pads, and Rapid Spot Treatment. She starts with washing her face with the Maximum Action Rapid Treatment Face Wash.
