Hello precious people,
I have to share with you this amazing cc cream/spf50/antiaging serum that a friend who was visiting New York brought back for me to try.
IT Cosmetics is an American brand available in the U.K on QVC. I had never tried anything from this brand before so I was very curious about this, especially since the reviews were mixed. On QVC it retails for £30.
Now on to the claims: It is supposed to be a medium coverage cc cream, an SPF 50 (physical sunscreen)and it also claims to include an antiaging serum, all developed by plastic surgeons.
The second ingredient on the ingredient list is snail secretion which can allegedly help with collagen production. Apart from this, the rest of the ingredients seem promising: hyaluronic acid, peptides, vitamin C and E, antioxidant and collagen.
The SPF comes from Titanium and Zinc, which are my preferred ingredients when it comes to sun protection.
Now the most important part: is it a good base, does it provide medium coverage, does it really illuminate, does it hold up throughout the day? Well, the answer is YES!! I am in love with this product and since I am experiencing a little retinol purge at the moment, this was the perfect time to test this cc cream as my skin right now is far from being great. I have attached some before and after pictures (excuse the spots ….hopefully the retinol purge phase will soon be over). I used just one pump for the whole face and then used a beauty blender to blend. I used the color Medium.Bare in mind the finish is kinda dewy so maybe I would recommend this for combo to dry skins . If you are very oily you might want to try the non-illuminating formula. Let me know what you think please in the comment section and feel free to visit my Instagram alexinwonderland81.
