This stuff works! I usually like to wait to give you my final word, but, in this case, I absolutely fell in love with this product!
My initial concern.
Was the word “rosy”. I have light olive skin, dark brown hair and green eyes. No doubt that I’m a warm skin tone, so, rosy-pink colors are not in my usual palette. However, in this case, it seems to make no difference whatsoever, and in fact, looks fantastic. I’m very pleased!
I initially simply cleansed my face and applied my IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream Rosy Tone on bare skin. It worked beautifully. The Beauty Mom Review Video.
But today, I did my usual AM Routine, which included serums and a layer of another moisturizer that has an SPF (need that when you use retinol or retin-A), and, I’m still happy with my results! So, in short, there’s no “wrong way” with this cream It does the job no matter!
What’s in it?
Here’s the IT Cosmetics list:
AQUA / WATER / EAU, SQUALANE, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, GLYCERIN, CETYL ALCOHOL, GLYCERYL STEARATE, PEG-40 STEARATE, MYRISTYL MYRISTATE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAETHYLHEXANOATE, OCTYLDODECANOL, SORBITAN TRISTEARATE, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, ACRYLAMIDE/SODIUM ACRYLOYLDIMETHYLTAURATE COPOLYMER, SYNTHETIC FLUORPHLOGOPITE, CI 77891 / TITANIUM DIOXIDE, ISOHEXADECANE, SILICA, CAPRYLOYL SALICYLIC ACID, ASCORBYL GLUCOSIDE, CHLORPHENESIN, MICA, POLYSORBATE 80, PARFUM / FRAGRANCE, PAEONIA ALBIFLORA ROOT EXTRACT, DISODIUM EDTA, CI 77163 / BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE, CI 77491 / IRON OXIDES, HYDROLYZED CICER SEED EXTRACT, TOCOPHEROL, NIACINAMIDE, SODIUM HYALURONATE, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, SORBITAN OLEATE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, IRIS FLORENTINA ROOT EXTRACT, VIGNA ACONITIFOLIA SEED EXTRACT, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, SODIUM COCOYL GLUTAMATE, HEXYL CINNAMAL, TIN OXIDE, LIMONENE, GLUCOSE, CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA FLOWER EXTRACT / MATRICARIA FLOWER EXTRACT, CETEARETH-25, SOLUBLE COLLAGEN, SODIUM BENZOATE, CITRIC ACID, URTICA DIOICA EXTRACT / NETTLE EXTRACT, EQUISETUM ARVENSE EXTRACT, BETULA ALBA LEAF EXTRACT, POTASSIUM SORBATE, CAMELLIA SINENSIS LEAF EXTRACT, ROSE EXTRACT, DIPEPTIDE DIAMINOBUTYROYL BENZYLAMIDE DIACETATE, CERAMIDE NP, BEHENIC ACID, CHOLESTEROL, TRISODIUM EDTA, CERAMIDE NS, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, CERAMIDE AP, CERAMIDE EOP, CERAMIDE EOS, CAPROOYL PHYTOSPHINGOSINE, CAPROOYL SPHINGOSINE, ASCORBYL PALMITATE D226634/1
Of course, there’s the latin plant name for it, but, the PAEONIA ALBIFLORA ROOT EXTRACT is more commonly called Peony Extract. This is the magic ingredient that brings about the soft, pink glow. But, the good doesn’t stop there.
Note the salicylic acid high on the list. That is found in many acne treatments, scrubs, exfoliating masks and other skin-sloughing products. That’s the job of SA – to rid us of the dead skin cells that can collect on the surface of our face and lead to dull-looking skin.
And, there’s more. This of you who have been following my work for the past 10-12 years will know that I am a huge fan of Decleor Paris products, namely their darn near miraculous Iris Serum. Anytime I see iris oil in a product I’m pretty much sold. And it is here, nicely placed about mid-list.
Last, but not least, there’s even soluble collagen not too low on this impressive lngredients list! Note that if you’re vegetarian or vegan you may need to do some homework on this product, as I’m not sure of the collagen source. Ditto for the squalane, which can come from either Spanish olives or sharks. So, that’s just a little heads up there.
What skin types benefit:
Officially, the category is “aging skin”. But, uh, who doesn’t fit there? We are all aging! I feel it’s good for most any type, with the note that there are quite a few plant extracts in the product, so it could be a concern for allergy sufferers. I’d say go through the ingredients list and check to see if anything it contains is problematic for you.
How I’ll use this:
This will be my end product from here on. I love it that much. It feels so good on my skin, and seeing that immediate, subtle yet absolutely “there”, glow, I plan to use my IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream Rosy Tone without any end in sight.
I bought my IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream Rosy Tone with my own money and for my own use. Cost was $48
