      I have terrible rosacea. Redness , bumps, random patches of roughness , the whole nine yards. I'm currently using a medicated moisturizer to help but even when i wasn't this is the only foundation that worked. I can't say enough about this product. If you have skin issues , be it texture, color or pores this is amazing and doesn't cake your face ( something I hated in the full coverage brands ).

      I was looking for something light to wear instead of foundation and specifically asked the clerk for such a CC product. This is what she recommended. But this is heavier than my current foundation. I can't imagine ever using it.

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

          I have tried several IT foundations and other products and I generally LOVE them. I truly love the brand because I didn't realize how many of my breakouts and skin issues were caused by irritants in the makeup I was using until I started using IT. IT has completely made a difference in my complexion, dramatic improvement began the first few days.
          This product is ok when first applied, however it absolutely does not set on it's own and does not last nearly as long as all the other foundations from IT. To make this product work properly, offer the coverage most people will desire and last all day you will definitely need the setting powder made to go with this. On it's own it is ok for just a casual moisturizer with light coverage that is buildable to medium coverage, but you will use a lot of product for that.
          I don't mind the fact that the IT line is fairly pricy because it truly replaces the need for moisturizer, primer, and in most cases a setting powder. Also, because this has cleared up other skin issues I am not paying for pricy face washes and things to (unsuccessfully) deal with that. So considering that, the prices are actually really a good deal for me. That being said I don't like the idea that with this cream I need to pay over $30 for the matching powder to make it work correctly.

          Overall I think this is not the best use of money with the IT line, if you are looking for a full coverage all day foundation. Confidence in a cream and Celebration Foundation are much better.

            If your definition of illuminating is face full of glitter than this product is for you. In the sun it literally looks like I washed my face with a glitter bomb. Should of stuck with the original formula.

                I bought this by accident when I was trying to buy the regular CC+ cream, but for what it says it does, it's pretty good. I just applied this with clean fingers. The medium shade leans more pink-toned

                      Hi there, thank you for your question! Bye Bye Foundation is all about the 3D SkinFlex technology that makes Bye Bye Foundation different from CC+ Cream, which are both best selling foundations on our website! Both will have similar coverage however Bye Bye Foundation has 3D SkinFlex technology - it allows the foundation particles to move along with the movement of your skin for the most natural and flawless coverage while delivering multiple skincare benefits! CC+ Cream has super powerful color correcting pigments. Both are developed to truly give you your most beautiful skin! Bye Bye Foundation is $65 and CC+ Cream in $38. We hope this information is helpful! XOXO

                      Hi there, thank you for reaching out to IT! CC+ Cream Illumination does have primer and moisturizer built into IT, so it is not necessary to apply either before. However depending on your skin and personal preference, you may choose to apply primer or moisturizer first, or even both if you find your skin could use a boost. You can adapt IT to your skin's needs! XOXO

                    Hi! I am very fair with neutral undertones. I've tanned a little (for me) and am just a shade darker than Josie Maran Vibrancy foundation in RG5/Dynamic right now. Is the fair shade of It Cosmetics CC Cream Illumination going to be a close match to me, or will it probably be too dark? Also, does it work well with dry skin, or should I use a different IT cosmetics foundation? Thank you so much! ��

                      Hi there, thank you for your question! CC+ Cream and CC+ Cream Illumination contain the same full coverage, skincare and anti-aging benefits, and physical only SPF 50+ protection. The difference is in the finish- the original has a natural demi-matte finish whereas the illumination is infused with our Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of subtle radiance. XOXO

                    I use NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in the shade Stromboli. Just wondering what shade would match me best. Btw I have more of a yellow undertone. NOT pink.

                    Thanks xo
