Have you ever struggled with finding the perfect foundation for yourself, with queries about the right shade or type or brand leaving you more confused than ever? Miraculously, if you do end up finding a suitable foundation, choosing the right concealer becomes a quest on its own.
Well, you have finally arrived at the right place because once you are done reading about the IT cosmetics CC cream, all your dilemmas and queries are going to clear themselves out automatically, leaving you with a one-step solution.
What is a CC Cream?
‘CC’ is an abbreviation for the term ‘color correcting’ wherein its purpose is to neutralize the discoloration on your skin, leaving you with an even skin tone. However, that’s not all, a CC cream also provides hydration and nourishment to your skin based on the ingredients found in the formula.
A CC cream can either be worn under your foundation or on its own, as it does provide medium to full coverage.
The story behind IT cosmetics CC cream
The IT cosmetics CC cream comes in twenty-two natural shades and three different finishes that you can choose from. Apart from functioning as a color corrector and concealer it is enriched with ingredients that work together to make your skin healthier in the long run.
- SPF offers protection against UVA and UVB.
- Hyaluronic acid hydrates your skin, making it more supple.
- Green tea extracts keep your skin safe against harmful environmental factors.
- Niacinamide improves the texture of your skin.
- Anti-aging serum helps reduce dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Additionally, the IT cosmetics CC cream gives you a full coverage and it blurs out your pores, doing the job of a primer.
There are three variations of the IT cosmetics CC cream available:
Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40
This cream formula is best suited for combination and oily skin. It leaves you with a matte finish which then acts as the perfect foundation to build your makeup on. It also doubles as a broad-spectrum sunscreen containing SPF 40.
Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50
Suitable for all skin types, this CC Cream gives you a natural, radiant finish which makes it ideal for daily use. Its color correcting, concealing, and hydrating properties help in making your makeup routine less time-consuming and more efficient.
Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination with SPF 50
Perfect for festivities, this variant of the IT CC Cream illuminates your skin from the inside out, adding that oomph to your makeup look. It is most suitable for normal to dry skin types.
BB cream vs CC cream
What makes a CC cream different from a BB cream?
- While ‘CC’ stands for ‘color correcting’ the acronym ‘BB’ stands for ‘blemish balm’.
- Compared to a CC cream, the BB cream offers a lighter coverage giving your skin a more natural finish, which makes it a great option for everyday makeup.
- When it comes to texture, CC creams are lighter than a BB cream or a foundation.
- A BB cream provides an even finish to your skin and covers up blemishes, as well.
The Chanel CC cream
Another CC cream worth mentioning is the Super Active Complete Correction Sunscreen by Chanel. It has SPF 50 that offers protection against UVA and UVB.
This particular CC cream has a medium-to-full coverage, and it covers up any discoloration or hyperpigmentation, leaving you with the perfect skin tone. It also works as a moisturizer and has anti-aging properties.
This CC cream by Chanel contains Marunga plum extract which is rich in Vitamin C that protects your skin against environmental factors and works on improving the skin’s texture. The Hyaluronic acid found in this cream locks moisture into your skin, keeping it hydrated and plump-looking for a long time.
The Super Active Complete Correction Sunscreen is available in seven different shades.
Where do I buy it?
