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

    Love this stuff. I like a natural, but dewy look—I have dry skin and this does just the trick. I like how lightweight it is while still giving a moderate amount of coverage. I order it over and over again.

      I bought this after seeing the tv ads. It is suppose to be full coverage but I have a dark sun spot on my cheek and it did not cover it any more than any other foundation I have tried--I am very disappointed as I thought this would completely cover it. I will sick to drugstore brands since they are cheaper and work just as well

            It doesn't cover like the company claims. I still had to use coverup on hyper pigmentation that I have on my face. For 30+ dollars, I'd think it would do the job it claims to.

                        I had the regular version of this and ran out, so was planning on repurchasing, but since I have dry skin I thought I would try the illumination version. Bad decision. What I thought would have been just a dewier finish, maybe with a stronger moisturizer, turned out to be straight up shimmery. I had shimmer on my face for days after wearing it once, despite washing my face multiple times. I returned this right away, opting for the regular It cosmetics CC cream.

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

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

                          I've been using the CC cream all along because growing up (I'm 58) we didn't want to shine.

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 shade "Deuville" in Nars Sheer Glow. Would you suggest the shade "Light" or "Fair"? Thank you!
