I don’t think I have ever posted a review on an item which I received from a beauty subscription box. Why, I have no idea but thinking back, it’s pretty stupid of me not to. I have personally came across many amazing brands and products through beauty subscriptions which is also the main reason why I continue to subscribe. I won’t deny some months are more misses then hits but on the rare occasion I discover a gem, it is a HUGE GEM indeed.
IT Cosmetics has been on my radar for a while now however, I never had the opportunity to test any of their products until recently when a teeny weeny sample of their CC cream came in my ipsy May Glam Bag (reviewed here). The bag came early this month, I received it on 13th May so I have been using this CC cream for more than two weeks and this is my verdict….

IT Cosmetics wasn’t kidding when they said a little goes a lonngggg way because I only need extremely little for my whole face. That little tube of sample is still going strong and I’ve been using it almost everyday since receiving it.
The coverage is brilliant and I don’t need to use any concealer with this CC cream. Do take note that this does have a faint citrus scent to it so if you’re not a fan of citrus (what the hell is wrong with you?!) then you might find the scent intrusive.
I have tried countless CC creams and most if not all made my skin look dull, powdery and cakey. However IT Cosmetics CC cream leaves my skin looking natural with a soft, radiant, healthy glow and my pores blurred. And the biggest bonus? SPF50+…need I say more?
The one and only thing that has stopped me from purchasing this CC cream is the darn price (check here). With taxes and Canadian dollar not at its strongest, it’s really pricey for me. Okay, I lie…hubby is giving me the side eye about me having too many base products so this will have to wait for a bit. You know it’s bad when your better half started to notice all the crap (as he calls it) that is overflowing on the bathroom shelves….le sigh. #firstworldproblems
If your wallet or better half gives the green light for the purchase then I say go out and pick this up, you won’t regret it.
