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

I love that it has a high SPF and anti aging serum built into the formula. Feels so light on my skin the color match was very impressive. Doesn't make my breakouts worse or settle into my fine lines (I will also give a shout out to Too Faced Primed & Poreless for their part in that lol)
This product also smells great and a little goes a long way without it being too thick or tacky. This will become a regular item for my make up collection.

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

I had previously purchased this formula in the matte version and really liked it, but was looking for a bit of brightening too. This version fits the bill. Goes on smoothly and stays even, but has a little bit of shimmer to brighten my 41 year young skin when it's having a rough morning!

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

I actually like it a lot. It does even tone my skin. However I started breaking up a bit I hope it's not due to this product. Hopefully the whole anti aging components are true. It's the first time I hear of this brand so I'm testing it.

    Depending on my activity, I wear this both partial and full coverage. Either way, it blends easily, stays, looks so natural. The finish is beautiful and smooth-no caking, greasy, or clumping!

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

        While I like the coverage and that it has anti-aging product and it's SPF also, I don't like that the medium is too orange and the light is too light , so I have to blend them everyday . I wish It would come out with more shade options for those of us that are in the middle of light and medium. Once I'm done with these two containers I don't know if I want to make the expense again of having to purchase two containers.

            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 reaching out! We recommend trying the original CC+ Cream first. IT contains skincare and anti-aging benefits to give your skin the hydration IT needs, while offering the color correcting coverage you are looking for. This product is infused with color correcting pigments to neutralize redness and discoloration on contact with the skin. Try the original formula for a natural satin finish! XOXO

              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. Both versions have the same full-coverage, skincare and anti-aging benefits, as well as physical only SPF 50+ protection. 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

              Hi there, thank you for reaching out to IT! If you are looking to avoid shine, we recommend using the original CC+ Cream for a more natural finish. CC+ Cream Illumination is formulated with Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of radiance and an inner glow. We do suggest setting your foundation with powder to help set and give a true matte finish to the skin. We hope this helps! XOXO

            I use the light shade, and it matches perfectly to my summer skin tone, but its too dark for my winter tone. I really love this product, but I'm afraid of buying the lightest shade and it being too light. What do you guys recommend? If it helps I wear light for the Bobbi Brown BB cream, and fair-light neutral for Tarte's rainforest of the sea water foundation.

              A:

              Hi there, thank you for your question! If the Light shade is too dark for your complexion in the winter, you can use a concealer to lighten the shade. Another option is to use CC+ Cream Illumination in Fair, and use bronzer and blush to warm up your complexion. Alternatively, if you have both shades you can mix the two to get your best match. We hope these suggestions are helpful! XOXO
