Makeup as Skincare

As I am aging at the ripe age of 27, I have noticed my skin and complexion changing. My skin used to be very oily and acne prone. I am still suffering from adult acne, but it is a lot better than it was when I was a teenager. Now my skin feels a lot more dry and I find myself reaching for more hydration for my skin.

Over the last few months, I discovered It Cosmetics. I’m going to be honest, I saw It Cosmetics on QVC. You know what is fun to do? It’s fun to watch QVC or HSN while your mom is also watching the same program. We have done that and then text and call on commercials to discuss the products. It’s fantastic to be able to do that with a friend.

Anyway, back to It Cosmetics. I saw basically an extended infomercial for the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+. It is a “color correcting full coverage cream.”

DSCN0991It is called a CC cream, but I think it is definitely a full coverage foundation. It glides on super smoothly like a dream. QVC said to apply it and then wait 20 seconds for it to dry and you are good to go to apply anything else over it. I only need to apply powder over it on my chin and nose where I tend to get a bit oily.

DSCN0992The color correcting cream has SPF 50 in it. We all know how good it is to wear SPF daily, so I won’t go on and on about it. I use the color fair and it is a perfect match. I like to use this CC+ cream as an extension of my skincare. I doesn’t clog my pores. It looks and feels like my real skin instead of other foundations where I feel like it is covering my skin up.

Initially I bought this from Ulta, but have since found It Cosmetics is a lot cheaper from QVC. I recently ordered another tube of this CC+ cream from as the tube above is getting low.

I’m interested in trying other items from It Cosmetics. Have you tried any products from this brand already? If so, any recommendations?
