IT Cosmetics CC+ Illumination Cream with SPF 50+
My relationship with the original It Cosmetics CC Cream goes way back. I’ve tried the brand a long time ago and loved every single product I got. That’s rare. The CC Cream promised to be a more toned down version of the Korean versions which were big back in the day. It packed good for your skin ingredients, promised to be long wearing and featured an impressive SPF of 50. It has a wonderful light coverage that can be built thanks to its creamy texture. It’s hydrating but not greasy. It’s a bit of a miracle product and has been a staple in my routine ever since.

I usually wait for the Sephora sales to stock up on essentials and decided to try the newer Illumination version given that my shade was sold out in the original formula.
I’ve been wearing the new CC Cream and testing it for a few days now and I have to say, I can’t see a huge difference between the two formulas. The Illumination version is packed with similar amazing skin care ingredients and SPF, but it does seem to have a lighter feel. I find the coverage to be comparable to the original and can be built or sheered out with ease. I like to apply it with my fingers as I feel the warmth of the skin can help melt the product in and blend it out to perfection. It wears beautifully and truly makes me look like I have good skin. It doesn’t settle into lines, it does not emphasize pores yet it wears all day long and stays put during sweaty workout sessions.
Both versions of the CC Cream, the original and the Illuminating one are simply put, amazing. They are just fantastic for day wear, they’re easy to apply and look incredibly natural. My combo skin loves the formula and I am very happy to see the brand decided to expand its shade range. The brand also recently released a matte version and I’m kinda curious to try it as well.
If you’re like me and you’re looking for a product that’s easy to apply and wear, that’ll give you basic sun protection and will look natural for a day-to day look, then give the It Cosmetics CC Cream a try. You won’t regret it. It’s the ultimate multi-tasking product.
