Disclaimer: I’m not a mum.
But most of my girlfriends are, and because I have written about beauty products as a career for close to 15 years they always ask me what products they can use to look a little more alive.
Before I can sing the praises of regular DIY facial massage, sheet masks you need to leave on for 20 minutes and fancy facials they all tell me the same thing: they’ve got 60 seconds to do their face (usually with a baby on their hip or a toddler pulling at their pants).
That’s when I tell them about I.T Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream.
Alphabet creams, as they’re nicknamed, originated in Asia and became popular in Western culture about a decade ago. Although there’s subtle differences between BB, CC and even DD creams, essentially they’re all fancy tinted moisturisers with skincare benefits.
CC creams (which stands for Colour Correcting) are meant to correct imperfections and pigmentation. Lots of women have tricky-to-fade melasma from pregnancy which is one of the reasons they’re great for mums.
I’m pretty skeptical about products which make huge claims in the name (has anyone ever tested if Better Than Sex mascara really is?!) but in the case of I.T Cosmetics ‘Your Skin But Better’, it does what it says on the packet.
