It cosmetics cc cream review matte
One of my favourite skin bases ever is the IT Comestics CC Cream – both the original and the Illumination formula. The latest addition to the line up is a matte version. Here’s a look at the new IT Cosmetics Oil Free Matte SPF 40 with before and after photos.
IT Cosmetics Oil Free Matte SPF 40
Now what I love about the IT Cosmetics CC is the glow it gives the skin and because I love a shiny skin finish, the original and the Illumination products are always going to be my favourites. However, I understand that some people prefer a more matte finish, especially if they have an oily skin type, so I thought some of you would be interested to see how this looks on the skin.IT Cosmetics Oil Free Matte SPF 40
IT Cosmetics Oil Free Matte SPF 40 Features
What’s really interesting about this new launch, and actually quite beneficial to me is that they have diversified the shade range. In the original formula, I had to mix shade Fair and shade Light to get my match, and the IT Cosmetics Oil Free Matte SPF 40 actually has a Fair Light shade that works really well on my skin. I hope they roll out the news shades across the full range.

Before & After
And now the best part – what it looks like on my skin!BeforeAfter
Although I’m not a big matte finish advocate, I do actually like the look of this on my skin. Whilst it’s definitely not as glowy as my favourites, it isn’t a flatte matte, and it does good things to my enlarged pores. This would possibly be one I’d go for if I was expecting a long day where I wouldn’t be able to retouch or top up.
I think it will be great for oily skin, and of course those of you that prefer a velvet matte finish.
The IT Cosmetics Oil Free Matte SPF 40 is £30 and available HERE now.

What is matte CC cream for?
CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte can be used as your moisturizer, anti-aging serum, concealer, full-coverage foundation and sunscreen for face, based on your coverage needs. For best results, apply a smooth, even layer to your face, neck and décolleté for complexion perfection!
Is CC cream good for oily skin?
CC creams are suitable for oily and acne-prone skin due to their mattifying, lightweight and anti-aging properties.
Is CC cream better than BB cream?
One of the most significant differences between a CC and a BB cream is that while a BB cream offers light coverage and added skin care benefits, a CC cream also aims to colour correct. It's primarily meant to help correct the colour of redness, dark spots or pale skin and is meant to go under a foundation.
Are CC creams worth it?
BB creams and CC creams are best if you find foundations to be too heavy or are looking for a formula with added skin benefits. Both these categories generally lean lightweight, and depending on the formula, you can get the benefits of SPF, antioxidant protection, and/or color correction in a single product.
