REVIEW: IT Cosmetics CC Cream

Price: $38 // Size: 1.08 oz

Shades available: fair, light, medium, tan, rich

Where to purchase: Ulta, IT Cosmetics



Illumination formula (top) & original formula (bottom) swatches

I tried the original formula as well as the “Illumination” formula
(both in the shade “medium”). I prefer the original over the “Illumination” formula because the latter appeared slightly metallic on my skin.

Coverage: medium

Longevity: 4-5 hours


SPF 50 CHEMICAL-FREE sunscreen!!
It’s very difficult to find a physical sunscreen that doesn’t leave a thick white cast, but IT Cosmetics did it with their CC Creams!

Snail Secretion Filtrate
Upon further inspection, I found that this product was made in Korea. And us Koreans… we love our snail secretion (in beauty products, that is)! Snail extract (or snail mucin or snail secretion filtrate) is packed with nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes, proteoglycans and antimicrobial and copper peptides – all amazing for the skin in keeping it healthy and supple.

Skin type:
I have oily-combo skin, but I have been using this product almost everyday. However, I prefer a dewier complexion, so those who are seeking a more matte-finish to their skin may want to pass on this or set it with a translucent powder.

– Minimal selection of shades
– Will begin to break up on oily skin after 4-5 hours

My rating: 7/10
