IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40

A brand I see on my social feed all the time is IT Cosmetics, people raving about the CC Cream and the Bye Bye Under Eye Cream. Until now, it isn't a brand that I knew a lot about, but the opportunity to be colour matched was too good a chance to miss and a chat with one of the girls from the brand who could recommend some products just for me.
I have combination oily skin, so it was suggested that I opt for the Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil-Free Matte which also has an SPF 40 and I wasn't surprised to find that I was one of the lightest shades available - fair light.
This multitasking, complexion-perfecting foundation instantly reduces the appearance of skin imperfections including redness, and reduces the appearance of pores without creasing or cracking, helping to reduce shine and control oil.
I really don't like the feel of thick heavy foundation coverage, it makes me feel a little suffocated if truth be told and also, my skin doesn't need it, I am lucky enough that my only issue, apart from the slight reddening of one cheek (why!) when I am stressed, is combination-oily skin which leaves me with dry patches and an afternoon shine most days. So for me, this CC cream is ticking a lot of boxes from the description alone.

On the skin, whilst I apply using a foundation brush and I really like how it feels on my skin, it isn't as thick I was expecting it to be having read quite a few reviews and nor is it gloopy so it doesn't feel as though it has been applied using a trowel. I found it easy to apply and blend, just as I had been shown in-store and for me, it gives medium coverage which is buildable. So to cover the redness on my cheek, if I feel the need to apply more CC Cream, then I can

This CC Creme is Infused with charcoal to detoxify, colloidal clay and Moroccan lava clay which are known for their oil-absorbing effects, tea tree extract, known to combat blemishes plus hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins. All ingredients that my skin absolutely loves and reacts really well with. What drew me to this CC cream was the list of key benefits which include:

Key Benefits

  • Your full-coverage matte foundation, it's hydrating, anti-ageing, and with SPF 40 - in one step!
  • Delivers flawless looking coverage with a matte-looking finish - won't crease or crack
  • Helps to reduce shine and control oil
  • Works to improve the look of skin concerns include redness and dark circles
There is no doubt that I have become quite a big fan of this CC+ more so because it is oil-free and does have a really good SPF coverage, something you sometimes find amiss with brands and their face products.
