Verdict

The IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream is a high coverage foundation with an impressively high SPF.

It has a thick, pigmented formula that covers plenty, including rosacea and acne scarring. A little goes a long way with this pigmented formula, and dry and mature skin will benefit from its hydrating formula.

There is one drawback – sensitive noses will not appreciate its citrus scent. It’s also limited by its small range of shades (only 12 shades are available).

Protective and hydrating

The IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream has one of the highest SPF I’ve ever seen in a base. Its skin-friendly mineral-based (titanium oxide and zinc oxide) formula covers without the dreaded white cast common in other mineral-based sunscreens.

The formula is hydrating without being oily. That said, it does not have any mattifying properties so it may look too shiny on oily skin.

Flawless finish

The medium to full coverage is excellent for dry and mature skin, and won’t settle into fine lines or pores.

The finish is dewy but somewhat opaque due to its pigmented coverage. Hence, applying too much of this will look unnatural and plasticky.

I recommend using a small amount of this base, and blending well with a makeup brush or a low-cost blending sponge for the most natural finish.

Contains scent and has limited shades

The IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream shade collection.

I wish IT Cosmetics would leave out the scent in this product. As someone with a sensitive nose, I found the citrus scent to be overpowering upon application, although it faded quickly.

The shade range is underwhelming for such a high-end product. That said, it does have a decent selection of shades for warm, cool and neutral skin tones.
