Comments about It Cosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

I had high hopes after using their AMAZING Bye Bye Under Eye Illuminating Concealer, but this product did not stay on or provide the flawless coverage it promised. I do have more oily skin so that may be why. The concealer works great, so I figured this product would be equally amazing and it just wasn't.

    Comments about It Cosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

    I was looking for a full coverage CC cream and I've found it. I apply this after moisturizer, and use it as a primer. The coverage is full and also provides a nice glow to my skin. I use a matte foundation that is full coverage, and since using this product I realize I use half of the normal amount of foundation I normally would use. I think this will be especially nice in the summer when I don't want to wear too much makeup, but still want a glow and spf. My favorite aspect of this product is it's hydrating and has SPF 50!

      I love this product so much. I also bought the sample size first and was very impressed with the CC coverage. I have rosacea and dry skin and this product covers, illuminates and stays put all day. There is no need for highlighting when using this product and I did not notice a smell from this as others have. When you have different skin conditions and are of a certain age it can be difficult to find products that work for you. LOVE LOVE

        I feel like I would love this foundation if it was easier to apply... I have rosacea and so I have a lot of redness to cover and I have to really work at it with this foundation to apply it. But afterwards I do like the finish just expected it to be a little bit dewier then it actually was.

          I love how the foundation feels and looks on my face and this is my 3rd purchase. Only thing is the pump broke off at the top as soon as I tried to use this new tube, and I was not able to put it back on. Will have to find a way to return this and get a replacement as I cannot travel with the rube like that.

                I bought this product in light but it's quite dark and has an olive tint. Although I'm normally light/ fair medium may have worked better. The product is thick and blending is difficult. With hands, brush, or beauty blender it's hard to get even coverage. Day 1 the active SPF ingredients caused a light burning sensation similar to applying sunblock to dry skin. I didn't it have the same feeling Day 2. I have also always purchased matte or satin finish foundations. This makes my skin appear very shiney and oily. Not great if you're already oily. I also don't have problematic skin and this weakly covers the few red spots I do have around the corner of my nose. I don't think this foundation would effectively cover blemishes or acne.

                • Q:

                  I am currently using the CC+ cream in the lightest shade and I found over time that it made my skin look a bit ashy. Should I get the second lightest shade or do you think it'd be too much of a drastic change? I got matched with the shade 1.0 in the naked skin foundation and I had the same issue.

                    Hi there, thank you for your question! If the Fair shade of CC+ Cream is too light for you, the Light shade is still light, but does offer warmth to the skin. We recommend trying out the Light shade. You can always mix the two shades to get your perfect shade at that given time! XOXO

                  I am a redhead with fair skin, not not pale white. More of a pink undertone. My sister wears the shade light. I tried hers but it had a yellow or orange tone that I didnt like. I like a much more natural color. Do you think fair would work for me, without washing me out. I also just tried 2 different foundations in light and fair and they were both too light. Im having a very hard time finding the right shade. I do have slight roseasa. Any suggestions?

                    Hi there, thank you for your question! CC+ Cream Illumination in the Fair shade is the most neutral in undertone. The rest of the shades do have a warm undertone. We suggest trying out the Fair shade. You can always warm IT up with a cool toned blush to add more contrast and color to your complexion! XOXO

                    Hi there, thank you for your question! Both versions of CC+ Cream contain the same great coverage, amazing skincare ingredients, and ultimate physical only SPF 50+ protection. The difference is in the finish- the original has natural satin finish, whereas CC+ Cream Illumination contains our Drops of Light Technology that gives the skin the look of radiance and an inner glow. If you prefer the look of luminous skin, we suggest trying the Illumination version! XOXO
