After debating whether i should buy this for a little while now, I finally just did it. I was concerned Illuminating might be too much for me and was considering just buying original cc cream. The Illuminating cream is even better than the regular cc cream. If your main concern with this one is how Illuminating is it then I can say don't worry. This gives you a healthy radiant complexion that glows a little more in certain lights but it's still on the subtle side and natural looking anyways. It goes on and just melts into your skin it seems. I love that it looks thick when applying it so you can see that you have it applied evenly and all over but slowly just fades until it becomes like your second skin. It isn't oily or drying, it stays on all day and this actually holds up better than my foundation does somedays. My favorite part of this problem is that it makes my skin look good enough that I wear this in liwu of my foundation most days now. If I do wear foundation, it now sees to heavy and I wish I had worn this. It's converting into my foundation of choice. This is a great product and I recommend this over the unilluminated cc cream

I think that this is a very nice Foundation it's very light but it is also buildable it's definitely not full coverage it's more like a CC cream or BB cream on steroids LOL I tried applying it with the garage that's supposed to be made for it and I really didn't love the way it came out with the brush at all I've definitely prefer a damp of beauty sponge. And I like that it has sunblock in it but it doesn't feel or smell like it does, I don't think I would use this particular Foundation every single day as part of me regular makeup routine but I would definitely use it on summer days when it's really hot with some highlighter, waterproof mascara, and lipgloss that being said I'm a huge fan of most It Cosmetics products and I love the fact that they are made with dermatologist and makeup artist, but I'm going to say this is one of my least favorite products made by them. It's also very pricey in my opinion I know it's in between $50 and $60 so in my opinion that's very overpriced. I do like it I just don't think it's worth that much money.

Pros:
- Glowy, but not oily finish
- The perfect medium coverage that neutralizes but still allows freckles to shine through
- At $39, it's actually cost effective because you need less serum & less moisturizer. The serum, moisturizer & correcting elements of this CC actually work like they say they will. My skin is more luminous, even, with a reduction in fine lines without this on. The longer you wear it, the less product/coverage you need. This is as important to my skin care routine as it is to my makeup routine
- Follow-on to my previous comment, if traveling or in a time crunch this could replace your serum & base moisturizer entirely.
- Does not oxidize or settle as the day goes on
- Blends and works seamlessly with bye-bye under eye 
- I breakout mostly when my skin is going through a dry period, this keeps my skin so moisturized that I haven't had any breakouts in the months I've been using it. In the occasion I get a pimple from accidentally sleeping in my makeup, the serum and moisturizing properties of this product make the spot go away in a day or two. 
- Slowly converting all my face makeup products to IT Cosmetics because of this product!

Cons:
The only con of this product is I.HATE.THE.PUMP. As a buildable-coverage CC you should have more control over the amount of product released. The default pump releases more product than I need and half-pumping is difficult because there's sometimes air trapped in the container. Before this, I used the Juice Beauty CC (which I LOVED for the skin benefits but I like IT Cosmetics CC's buildable coverage factor when I need it) and it didn't have a pump, so I could take just as much product as I needed and therefore it took me twice as long to go through the bottle. I would love if they changed the pump to something more similar to that of the bye-bye under eye concealer.

IT Cosmetics® Your Skin But Better™ CC+ Illumination™ with SPF 50+ is a daily product in my beauty routine. I mix it with my foundation to get that perfect dewy look. It is advertised as full coverage, however I think it is more of a medium coverage that’s why I gave it 4 stars. The bottle doesn’t look very big, but there is actually a lot of product in it. It covers up my redness pretty good. I would definitely recommend this product alone or mixing it with foundation like I do.

I initially found out about the CC line by buying the original one on a whim. This one I got because I was looking for more of a glow and I think it delivers. The formula has some sort of shimmer to it that's more noticeable if I apply some in my hand a s a swatch but it's undetectable on the face. Instead it makes my skin glow just how I like. A word of advice though if you're going for an every day look don't apply any more products with shimmer or glitter. The foundation itself will make you flow enough. As for oily skin people do pat on some setting powder. The one downside I fount is if I didn't set it my forehead would get a little bit too shiny. I've solved the problem with setting powder though so for me it's still a 5 star product.

The coverage is great, but I'm just not a huge fan of this CC cream. The illumination in the cream is more like glitter, it's super sparkly and that just isn't what I expected. Next, I wouldn't say I have super dry skin, but there are areas where I am a bit dryer. The cream really looked dry around my mouth and chin and then it made me look super oily (because of the glitter/sparkles) in other places. Lastly, it just feels really heavy on my fave, like a heavy cakey feel. I tried wearing this during the summer and my face felt gross. I kept giving it a try but the last time I did I ended up taking it off and starting my makeup over.

Hands down my favorite foundation! It’s good for your skin, great coverage, and covers almost everything on your face, that you can think of! It’s so airy and light on the face!! Only thing is if you’re not the one for a dewey look on your face, this probably won’t be for you!! I can say that I fell asleep in my makeup a few times and none of those times did I have a bad breakout the next day!! So this to me is a holy grail item!!

Let me start by saying I have super dry skin, we’re talking DRY. This is one of the few things that actually makes my skin look good, and for that I love it. But what I don’t love is all the glitter in it! 😩 it doesn’t enlarge my pores so that’s great but it does make me look SUPER oily by the end of the day (I’m not oily even in the slightest). And I had to set it with a ton of powder, when I usually don’t use any, and it still creased around my smile lines. Overall I’ll continue to wear it because it’s so hard to find something that doesn’t look like my face is peeling off, but I’ll keep looking for something else too.

This IT Cosmetics® Your Skin But Better™ CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+ is the first cc+ that I’ve really purchased myself. The medium tint matches me well and I haven’t burned while using it. When coupled with sunscreen or a setting mist that has sunscreen in its it provides great coverage, sun wise. Standing alone it does also; It’s broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF50+.

My medicines make me super sensitive to the sun so I got this because I don’t need moisturizer in these summer months but I DO need coverage and sun protection. This cc cream does the trick AND covers my blemishes, while correcting my color, and my redness is reduced. The formula doesn’t bother my sensitive skin and it stayed on all day while providing full coverage. Perfect for lazy poolside or beach days.

This has tons of tiny sparkles/glitters that will make you look REAL bling. My skin tends to get shiny throughout the day so this is not a look that I prefer. My t-zone, especially the forehead, does get pretty shiny even when I set this with a powder. However this does give a very nice coverage but still leaving my skin looking like skin. I like to apply with a flat brush and tap it into the skin with a damp sponge for light to medium natural finish. It also leaves the skin smooth to touch after it sets. The medium shade is a bit too dark for me but can definitely work for summer time.

I have oily skin in the summer. Would this be bad for my skin? Should I try the original instead?

I just bought the regular and LOVE it but I love anything that has illumination in it. I have heard many reviews stating that there is actually glitter in this, ladies who have this, how do you feel about it?

I use the CC cream in medium every day - I haven't tried the illumination yet. Is there a big difference in coverage?
