Leaves a beautiful finish but has very fine glitter in it that's not noticeable unless I'm really close to someone in direct sunlight

        I've tried all kinds of foundations over the years. I want one that covers/blends and looks natural not powdery. I finally found IT
        It covers and evens your skin tone - you can add a little more in areas that need it. I've had a friend ask me "Are you not using foundation anymore?" I told her what I was using and now she used it. I'm a young sensational sixty and IT works beautifully for me!

        Not for Snow White

        By taylormk

        from nebraska

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

        I guess I'm the fairest of them all because the fair is too dark. And it's too yellow, so I look a bit jaundiced. I was "color matched" in store too. and it doesn't seem to cover much in terms of dark circles. and it also points out my forehead wrinkles pretty aggressively. First prestige foundation purchase a pretty big fail.

        Doesn't wash off!!??

        By SJ

        from Oregon

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

        This stuff covers well and has a pretty finish to it, but it is SO hard to wash off! Every time I wear this I have to wash my face twice and then I still get traces of it on the cotton ball or use toner afterwards. Gross. And then I had to use about five different cleaners until I found one that took it off my brush. I ended up using a clarifying shampoo of all things. I was so excited to try this product but it's just not for me.

          I am confused at whether i would still wear my confidence in a cream moisturizer with this product. Can you help?

          Also, can you explain why I would choose this product over bye bye foundation?
          Thank you

            Hi there, thanks for your question! When IT comes to applying moisturizer on your skin before your coverage, it's all about your skin and what IT needs. If CC+ Cream Illumination is hydrating enough for your skin on it's own, you can skip applying moisturizer first. If your skin is rather dry and could use the added moisturizer, definitely apply IT first! CC+ Cream Illumination is for those who need a product with powerful color correction to IT, This product is formulated for a variety of skin concerns to neutralize discoloration for flawless looking skin. Drops of Light Technology makes IT illuminating to give the skin a lit-from-within glow. Bye Bye Foundation is a clinically advanced moisturizer with full coverage. You would use this product if you don't have redness concerns, but want hydratig coverage and the benefits of an anti-aging moisturizer! XOXO

          I have dry skin and find most CC creams and foundations look really flaky on - which one of the IT CC/foundations is most moisturizing/best for dry skin? Also have redness on my cheeks so I need something that will even me out (but still look natural). Thanks!

            Hi there, thanks for your question! If you are just starting off with CC+ Cream, we recommend trying the original, which has a natural demi-matte finish.

The Illumination is infused with Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of an inner-glow! XOXO

        • Q:

          Hello & Help lol!
          I've been using the CC cream all along because growing up (I'm 58) we didn't want to shine. Now all I read about is the Illumination product & wonder if it would be better for me. Then; every other minute is the infomercial for the 3D Foundation & I think that's the one I should be using. What's a girl to do???
          I'm a Med btw in the reg foundation.
          Plus- 1 more question. Am I supposed to be putting powder on over it or not? I have both the foundation compact & the finishing compact (which I highlight my cheekbones with)
          Thx
