BB creams have taken the beauty world by storm over the last two years but the latest buzz is all about CC creams. CC represents Color Control or Color Correction. Like BB creams, they boast extensive skincare properties and SPF protection but with the added benefit of color-correcting technology to improve uneven skin tones with a non-oily easier-to-blend formula.
I’ve been experimenting with a few new CC Creams recently and would like to introduce you to the next CC Cream to grace the US market – It Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50 ($38)
Developed with leading plastic surgeons, IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ is your full-coverage color-correcting cream, antiaging serum, and broad-spectrum SPF 50+ all in one! This highly pigmented, multitasking beauty miracle covers everything, won’t crease or crack in fine lines, and gives you a Your Skin But Better glow. The hydrating formula is infused with peptides; niacin; algae; vitamins A, C, B, and E; hyaluronic acid and hydrolyzed collagen, along with antioxidants and exotic botanicals for brightening and color-correcting benefits.
True to its name, this CC cream really gives a natural “your skin but better” glow. It’s available in 5 different shades and the Medium shade turned out to be a great match for my NC-25ish warm skin tone.
The formula has a rich, creamy texture that applies and blends easily but if my dry skin is feeling extra dry, I like to prep with a hydrating primer to facilitate a super smooth application. I just need one small pump of the CC cream for my whole face. Despite being not-so-lightweight, it doesn’t feel heavy or chalky and seems to provide a ‘breathable’ coverage so I can easily see myself wearing it even on hot summer days. However, things might feel a bit different for those with oily to very oily skin as the formula is pretty hydrating and it would be a good idea to use a setting powder.
This CC cream offers buildable, medium to full coverage with a dewy finish that I love! You can easily count on this product to take care of any redness and it also covers up my acne scars and dark spots almost completely without looking like I’m wearing a ton of makeup…..complexion perfection in a flash! And the coverage lasts throughout the day without any oxidation issues.
It Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50 is definitely my new CC Cream of choice! Its perfect for anyone who wants excellent yet natural-looking coverage to instantly correct and camouflage skin imperfections and achieve a more radiant-looking and supple complexion…..with anti-aging benefits and SPF protection to boot! And you can wear it alone – for me it’s absolutely enough during the spring/summer months (if I am indoors for most of the day), though very dry skin types might like to combine it with a light moisturizer.
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50 is available exclusively on QVC for $38 (although it’s currently available for $34.68).
