It Cosmetics is one of those brands that I've been familiar with for many years from following other beauty blogs, and one that I have been lusting over. Their Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream* has been raved about over and over again, and with It Cosmetics making its way to the Great White North (aka Canada) at Sephora back in August, I was super stoked to see if this product actually lives up to its outstanding reviews. After testing it out for a few months, I am ready to share my insight!
I received the Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream in the shade Light, which is the second lightest shade out of a range of seven. I was a bit skeptical that the colour would match me, as although it looks quite light in the tube, it did swatch a bit darker on my arm right off the bat without it actually oxidizing. I was relieved that applied to my face, this shade was a pretty perfect match. Housed in a plastic tube with a pump dispenser, getting the product out is a mess-free experience, making it ideal to pack into your makeup bag when travelling or on the go.
I would say this tinted cream offers buildable light to medium coverage on my acne prone skin - I need two layers for my redness to cancel out and for most of my imperfections to be concealed. I have combination skin, and what I appreciate is that this does not cling to my dry patches on my cheeks or chin, nor breakdown on oilier areas like my nose, while at the same time providing a naturally luminous finish. This CC Cream claims to provide full coverage, which has not been the case for me as I still need to use concealer to really fade my scars and hyperpigmentation - so this is a major area that left me a bit disappointed. I do like that it feels so lightweight, and that it doesn't fade throughout the day. I also like that it contains a high SPF of 50. I would recommend using a dense brush to apply it, too.

For these reasons, I am on the fence on whether I would recommend it - if you are expecting full coverage and have problem skin, I would say there are better options out there, but if you have a pretty even skintone to begin with, this could work very well for you.
