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

    I'm 54 and have menopausal, drying skin. I thought I'd try the illumination CC cream since I need a boost (goodbye matte foundations of my youth). It's way too sparkly for me, and where I was hoping for a "dewy" finish, I've got an "oily"-looking one instead. I'm going to take a suggestion from this page and try it with the Bye-Bye Pores finishing powder. Right now, I'm not super happy with it. Another thing where it's failing me is when I've used It's original CC cream, I got great color correction under the eyes. This illuminating CC cream doesn't last under the eyes or something, because my dark circles are definitely showing through. I'm disappointed, I usually like It's products.

        The first time of use, my husband wanted to know what I did to my face. I asked him if it looked bad, and he said No!!!! It looks great! What did you do? Told him it was a new product. He said he needs some lol. I have normal and light skin, and it does leave a little shine (guessing the SPF factor?), but after blush/bronzer and an illuminating/highlighter liquid contour product and finish with Bye Bye Pores, a matte finish looks and feels wonderful. After expensive big name brands, this is my final prize! I'm 45 and the anti-aging serum is a plus.

                This product looks great for about 6 hours and then seems to disappear. For the price it should be long lasting.

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

                    I LOVE this CC cream! For years I have been looking for a foundation that is lightweight, full coverage, and long lasting. I suffer from rosacea and this CC cream is by far the best product I have ever used! It is very full coverage which I love. I have tried soooo many foundations. A lot of other foundations tend to wear off, feel very heavy, and aren't nearly as full coverage as they claim to be. I have a huge problem with touching my face, so most foundations wear off around my cheeks and chin instantly. I was immediately shocked that at the end of the day the CC Cream/foundation DID NOT BUDGE. I had my makeup on all day and it still looked as flawless as it did when I first applied it! This CC cream set with my elf illuminating palette made my skin look SO FLAWLESS! It is by far my favorite combination. I have never seen my skin look so great before! I am still astonished with how amazing my skin looks and feels even when I am breaking out. I wear this the most when my rosacea rash occurs and wow.. you would never have guessed a rash was even present! It hid my texture and redness so well. The best part is that it has an SPF of 50 in it. I love using products with sunscreen in it because it not only reduces aging but protects my sensitive skin from sun damage. I will definitely repurchase again and again.
                    Keep in mind the illuminating CC cream has glitter in it. So if you don't like glitter, go for the original "Your Skin But Better" CC cream.
                    I just wish they had more of a shade range.

                        Hi there, thank you for your question! Both CC+ Cream and CC+ Cream Illumination have the same amazing full coverage, skincare and anti-aging benefits, as well as physical only SPF 50+ protection! The difference is in the finish- the original has a demi-matte finish whereas the illumination is infused with Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of subtle radiance for an inner glow. IT is based on your preference! XOXO

                      I have the original CC cream and I'm looking for something that will add a little more glow to my skin. I have normal to oily skin, will this work for me? Thanks!

                        Hi there, thank you for your question! CC+ Cream Illumination is just like the original and offers the same amazing full coverage, skincare and anti-aging benefits, as well as physical only SPF 50+ protection. The difference is in the finish- CC+ Cream Illumination contains our Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of subtle radiance for a dewy, luminious, inner glow finish! XOXO

                        Hi there, thank you for reaching out to IT! CC+ Cream and CC+ Cream Illumination contain the same full coverage, skincare and anti-aging ingredients, 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 Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of subtle radiance. XOXO

                      What is the difference between the shades medium and medium tan? I am currently using medium, but it seems to be just a hair darker than what I prefer. I swatched the two shades in store, and the medium tan actually looked a tiny bit lighter? Is this true?

                        Hi there, thank you for reaching out to IT! CC+ Cream Illumination in Medium is 1-2 shades lighter than the Medium-Tan shade. The Medium-Tan shade has a slightly deeper tone than the Medium. IT is a great idea to test the shades out in person like you have to determine which is best for your complexion! XOXO
