Do you ever wonder how a product becomes a ‘Cult Classic’ or a ‘Must Have’?
Some products get so much hype behind them, that the terms ‘Holy Grail’ and pop up in every ones ‘Favourites of the Month/Year/Season’
One of the products which was big in 2016 for this was IT Cosmetics CC (Colour Correcting) Cream.
Like I needed another base product, I have enough to last about 6 years, I had put off looking at this product as I am quite fair and it wasn’t in any stores near me, (literally not in my State even!) So I was hesitant to purchase online.
Over Christmas and New Year we went on a family holiday to Singapore (and Bali) I took this opportunity to do some shopping in Sephora (Ngee Ann City, Singapore)
I swatched the fair and found it was a pretty good match for my pale skin, so I thought what the heck, its coming home with me.
Well, I’ll have to be the next person/blogger that jumps on the bandwagon singing its praises, as its bloody good!
Why do I love it so much? It feels like your not wearing any make-up, it is so lightweight, it feels like your skin.
It doesn’t oxidise, at the end of the day it still looks fresh and natural and hasn’t changed shades on me.
It does a great job at evening out my skin, with a light to medium build-able coverage. I have some pigmentation which I find that this helps to cover, whilst still looking incredible natural.
I like the inclusion of some additional SPF, 50+ to be precise. Yes I do get my SPF from an actual SPF, however having a bit more is a bonus.
The tube has a pump applicator, so its super easy to dispense and not worrying about dropping a glass bottle on the floor of the bathroom!
The product also claims to provide anti-aging benefits, by way of the inclusion of an in built hydrating serum, I don’t know how to effectively measure this claim, but i’m not getting any younger, so I’ll buy in to this anyway!
I think this will be a staple in my collection for many years to come.
Have you a lover of the IT Cosmetics CC Cream too?
