It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Foundation + Skincare Review

I’m a massive fan of It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream, it's my go-to base product when I want something that has a little more coverage than a tinted moisturiser but still lets your skin breathe and look like skin and I totally get the hype. So when It Cosmetics released a new base product I was really intrigued and wanted to give it a try ASAP. The Your Skin But Better Foundation + Skincare* is described as a waterlight, buildable medium coverage foundation that improves bare skin in 2 weeks. It comes in a glass bottle with an easy-to-use pump applicator and is priced at £32* on the It Cosmetics website. I've been trying it out on and off for around a month now so I thought it was about time that I share my overall thoughts and whether I would recommend it.

On their website, they claim that it helps to minimise the look of pores and imperfections whilst delivering all-day hydration and wear with a naturally radiant finish and it's also suitable for all skin types and it contains hyaluronic acid, aloe vera extract, vitamins E & B5 and hepes acid.

Because I haven't worn it consistently every day for weeks, I can't really say much in terms of if it's improved my skin or not. It's also been Christmas as well which means I've obviously been eating more chocolate and sweets than normal which obviously can affect how your skin behaves. However, I love the way the foundation looks on my skin, it just gives it the pick me up it needs and leaves my skin looking more fresher and radiant without looking too radiant. It's almost like a demi-matte foundation because it is kind of matte when you apply it but with the right amount of radiance. Because of its waterlight consistency, it barely feels like anything on your skin either which is good and I don't feel like it slips and slides around even with it being quite watery in texture.

However, I do usually use a small amount of the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder on my t-zone which is my oiliest area no matter what base product I use. I've been applying the foundation with a brush like I normally do and I feel like I can get a light-medium amount of coverage depending on how many pumps I use (usually 2-4) and I also still opt for concealer when using this foundation to cover up my dark circles and imperfections as they still peek through if not.   

It does cling to dry patches a little if you don't use a primer, however, if you use a primer then it doesn't so that's something to remember if you pick this foundation up. I've been opting for the Too Faced Hangover Primer as of lately because I feel like it works well with my skin type, especially during the Winter months and I love the coconutty scent.

If you like a fresher, radiant look and want something that is really lightweight and barely feels like anything on your skin then I would 100% say give this a try. I feel like there is a good shade range available for this particular foundation as well, although I received the shade Fair Warm 10* and I would probably pick up the shade Fair Neutral 10.5 next time as Fair Warm 10 does pull slightly warm on my skin tone because I am very pale. Overall I would recommend this depending on what kind of finish you're going for.

Have you tried this foundation yet or are you thinking about trying it?
