IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream

This cream has received so much hype I just had to buy it to see for myself what it was like.

I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation for quite a while now and still absolutely love it but this sounded great because it’s a moisturiser, anti ageing serum, concealer, foundation and sunscreen all in one. Unbelievable ! It also claims to be full coverage which is good for me as I do prefer a full coverage foundation even in the summer.

I picked mine up from Selfridges and got shade light. There are 7 different shades to choose from.

This shade is perfect for my skin.

The packaging was a bit of a let down it looked a bit cheap. I think it looks like a ยฃ3 product rather than a ยฃ30 product.

The brilliant part of the packaging is that when you remove the lid it reveals a pump so it’s not just a squeezy tube. This is great as it controls how much product you dispense so you don’t end up wasting any or applying too much.

I applied it using my foundation buffing brush which is what I use to apply my Double Wear. I was initially disappointed with the coverage. It’s certainly not full. But it is buildable. I applied a second layer and this time I used my real techniques sponge and it was then more of a medium coverage. I used about three pumps in total.

The product smells lovely. Its got a fruity scent which reminds me of the YSL lipstick smell.

It has SPF 50 which is great. I wish more foundations had high SPF as its so important to protect your skin from sun damage.

It feels very nice on the skin and does give a natural, dewy look. I have to be careful what products I use on my skin because some can cause breakouts. I have used this several times now and no breakouts to report.

Unfortunately, despite setting this with powder, by the end of the day my skin looks like I have very little foundation left on. The problem is, I am comparing this to double wear which doesn’t budge all day. I can’t be doing with having to put more makeup on through the day. I want to just put it on in the morning and trust that its going to last the day.

I do like this CC cream but probably wouldn’t buy it again. I still much prefer my Estee Lauder Double Wear.

Have you tried it this IT cosmetics CC cream yet?

Thanks for reading

  1. Awww, I love the CC+ Cream but then again I’m not looking for something super full coverage. I always use a setting spray and never really have any trouble with it wearing off. It’s a shame you paid the 30+ dollars for it and don’t like it. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  2. I haven’t tried the original CC cream but the illuminating one is amazing! It has a natural reflect in it. perfect for the summer if you want a super glowy look.

  3. Great review. The great thing about iT Cosmetics is that they pack lots of good-for-your-skin ingredients in their products and I too love that it’s a 50 SPF. Did you try applying a setting spray? That helps the longevity of my makeup. I know how frustrating it is though when you find a product that matches your skin perfectly but isn’t the coverage level that you are looking for.
