It’s been awhile since I posted, but since the holidays are winding down I have more time to post.
Last month I received a pre-Christmas gift from my fabulous mother who is the QUEEN of HSN & QVC. She gave me IT Cosmetics CC Cream, Your Skin But Better: Color correcting and Full coverage cream.

Now for full disclosure, I am not really a big fan of CC and BB creams. I find them annoying because the ones I have tried never really got my color correct or made me have a lighter complexion 🤔. Nevertheless, I accepted my gift from my wonderful mom and below are my pros and cons:
Pro: This cream has SPF 50 UVA/UVA Broad Spectrum. This is a huge plus since I am black and I take my sunscreen count and spf levels very seriously. This is the highest I have seen without a prescription which is a plus and it offers a light feel that isn’t too heavy.
Con: I have combination skin which is a challenge to find the right moisturizer that fulfills both of my needs. This products advertises that you can replace your moisturizer but for my face I can’t. I need both. I found even if I applied my routine moisturizer that I usually wear then the CC cream my noise still looked flaky and dry 😟. Since there is color to this cream, it’s noticeable so I had to apply moisturizer again very lightly to my nose. So combo skin ladies this is an FYI.
Pro: Light, Light, and Light again! This cream is really light and not heavy at all! A little goes a long way in terms of applying to your skin and I use a beauty blender which makes it easier. My advice is to do one side of your face first, then the other and not to forget your neck.
Con: The price. Not don’t get me wrong, I have no problems paying for quality, however I think this products is slightly overpriced for the CC cream market. It’s competitors which could be drug store CC cream are half the price and are decent quality. I admit the high price could be that it is SPF 50 which is very high and top notch coverage and quality which I do see the value there. Also, you get more product than a drug store CC cream but my nose was still dry after I apply and applying more made it worse so that bummed me.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this CC cream for my ladies that are very sensitive to the sun and need lots of coverage but also be aware of your skin type as well.
Let me know your thoughts!
