IT Cosmetics hit Boots online and honestly, I was there. I’ve wanted to try IT Cosmetics out as a whole for such a long time, but I’ve always put it off for other things. From everything else in the IT Cosmetics range, the CC Cream has always stood out to me. The reviews I was seeing were all good, and the hype was really tempting me.
So for £30.00 – yes it may seem a little steep, but let me tell you this.
A little really does go a long way, a small 5p amount covers half of my face for that light to medium coverage. (If you’re looking for full coverage/something heavy. Sorry hun, this isn’t it.) So yes, you only need a little amount for everyday application. I have used this for a night out too and you can build this up to a more full coverage look, still looking natural.
When I describe this as full coverage, it’s full coverage for a CC Cream which is very lightweight on the skin and very natural looking. I’ve always loved and stood by Estèe Lauder Double Wear, but you can feel that it’s a lot heavier than what the CC Cream gives.
Not only does it give good coverage, it also contains SPF 50. Mad right? What more could you want from a base, other than having to smother your face in sun cream to get all sticky and feel gross. You’d think it containing SPF it would be super sticky and greasy on the skin. But it’s the total opposite. It’s lightweight, it doesn’t feel like you’ve got anything on and it also reduces the appearance of your pores.
I’m usually the shade Fair with a lot of foundations, but at the time of purchase it was out of stock. So I opted for the shade Light and it gives me a little tan which I prefer. It’s not too dark and it doesn’t give me any foundation lines on the jaw.
I suffer with sensitive skin and this has worked wonders with my skin. When I first used the CC Cream it certainly had a perfume scent to it, but there was no reaction which was a total bonus. The scent doesn’t stick to the skin or linger around, it’s just when you apply it you can smell it. It covers any redness on my skin too.
All round I absolutely love this CC Cream and I will certainly be repurchasing. I want to also buy a darker shade for when I go away this year, as this is something I can get along with in the heat. If I had to star this out of five on the Boots website, it’d be a five out of five.
Are you already on Boots purchasing this yourself?
