A day in the sun can really put cosmetic products that contain sunscreen to the test. The It Cosmetics’ Your Skin But Better CC Cream 50+ SPF aced it.
Even when sweating in direct sunlight for about four hours with the CC Cream, it works. Only a small amount is needed to completely cover the face. and I was nervous about my face getting burned. However, when I took the CC cream off at the end of the day, I discovered how well this product works.
I had no sunburn at all.
Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ has five different shades: Fair, Light, Medium, Tan and Rich. It comes in a 1.08 oz full size bottle ($38), and a 0.406 oz bottle ($15). In addition to the SPF, Your Skin But Better CC Cream also contains vitamins A, C, B, E as well as hydrating benefits.
The CC cream goes on smoothly and is very bendable. It Cosmetics also boosts the anti aging properties. According to the website, a clinical test showed significant improvement in skin: 77 percent of individuals saw minimized pores, 96 percent saw smoother skin and 85 percent saw a reduction in appearance of wrinkles after ten days of use.
This may disappoint the plastic surgeons who helped to invent the product. They’ll probably have less patients.
All jokes aside, this product allows my skin to breathe and it doesn’t clog my pores at all. This is also great for sensitive skin. I haven’t had any reactions from this product and you don’t need to use a lot to get full coverage. The product itself is extremely lightweight and it doesn’t feel or look like you’re wearing makeup either.
My experience with this product turned me into, as It Cosmetics calls it, an “It Girl.” I can’t recommend this product enough!
So if you’re looking for a full coverage foundation that is lightweight, has SPF and anti-aging properties and isn’t cakey, then Your Skin But Better CC Cream is for you.
