Hi, my name is Marlene and I’m in my early fifties. I love life, eating and hate any form of exercise…but I do love make-up, face creams and trying out anything new that promises to make me feel and look better. Turning 40 no-longer means turning boring. We want to look fabulous and have fun and this blog is a celebration of the beauty and wisdom those years have given us. So in Flawsome.Rocks I will be reviewing the many products aimed at our age group. I also want you to use my blog as a forum for you to give your opinions and ask questions on beauty products and any other topics that you think are of interest to other readers, so please add your comments. Your input and questions are really important!
I hope you enjoy reading Flawsome.Rocks!
it Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream
I was lucky enough to be given an awesome Advent Calendar filled to the brim with wonderful skincare and makeup products to try and I’m so excited to be able to take you all on my trip of discovery 🙂
Now I’m taking it that the reason I got this wonderful Advent Calendar is because my partner knows just how much I love makeup and skin care products and not because he wakes up every morning to see a vision of pure, un-make-up horror on the pillow next to him?!!!!
I’m also about to purchase a new Retinol product, a new eye product together with some new make-up I’ve never used before, so it’s going to be an exiting few weeks.
So hold on to your socks …….. here we go 🙂
“it COSMETICS – YOUR SKIN BUT BETTER CC+ CREAM Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream”
This week I would love to tell you about a CC cream I’ve been using for a few months now and I wouldn’t have been using it everyday for so long if I didn’t just love it. It’s another product by “it Cosmetics” and it’s their “YOUR SKIN BUT BETTER CC+ CREAM” Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream.
I’ve used CC Cream’s before but this one really does have everything in one lovely tube.
It gives you even skin tone, camouflages skin imperfections, contains anti-aging serum made of hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins A, B, C and E that diffuse the look of wrinkles, minimize pores and give you a flawless-looking complexion. And as if that wasn’t enough …… it also provides 50+ UVA/UVB sunscreen – so important in skin care for anyone of any age. Now I do use a Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Buffet (containing essential Peptides) and a moisturiser every morning before using “it Cosmetics – YOUR SKIN BUT BETTER CC+” but if you wanted to short cut – they do say that this one product can be used on its own……..
I didn’t want to horrify you with my morning face and so I’ve put a photo below of the back of my hand after applying this product – you’ll see from the picture below it that it really does cover imperfections. On the photo I have 2 presses of the foundation and I find that between 2 to 3 presses of this product will cover my face and neck completely when using a foundation brush.
I do want to add that it does give a slight sheen to my face – some people will like it, I personally don’t like it and so I do put a loose powder on after applying it to give a matte finish.
This product can be brought direct from “it COSMETICS UK” for £30 + postage, “Selfridges.com” also for £30 + postage. I purchased mine from “QVC UK” where I bought it for £35 but the price included a beautiful brush to apply it with (the brush is beautiful and soft and I always use it to apply it as oppose to fingers or sponges. It gives me much better coverage and even application).
All links are below including the QVC UK link which shows a short video on the product.
