As a beauty editor I try to be impartial.
But when I discover a skin care product that’s exceptional I can’t be silent. And I think the new Confidence in a Compact from itCosmetics could end up being the best new skincare/cosmetics product of the year.
In April 2016. advicesisters.com reviewed itCosmetics’ Confidence in a Cream Moisturizer ($48.00 2 fl. oz.) as a “Creme de la Cream.”
This is a skincare treatment/moisturizer that helps to improve the appearance of your skin’s texture while minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The key ingredients in Confidence in a Cream include ceramides, peptides, collagen, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and colloidal oatmeal — all proven skincare powerhouses.
This skincare treatment is also hypoallergenic, Paraben-free, and good for all skin types.
But Now It’s 2017 & There’s Confidence in a Compact!
itCosmetics took the Confidence in a Cream skincare treatment and combined it with a broad spectrum physical sunblock SPF 50. Then they turned the cream into a solid, and packed it into a clever compact. And if that’s not enough, they are offering it in 7 tints from light to deep
Why It’s Great Product:
Confidence in a Compact is perfect for busy people who travel, and who like multi-tasking skincare/cosmetics.
You get the skincare benefits of Confidence in a Cream including the Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate™ plus hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, squalane, and a super ceramide cream for anti-aging and moisturization.
Even better, the solid to serum formula of Confidence in a Compact is housed in a travel-friendly compact keeping it fresh, clean and safe.
The colors really suit a variety of skin tones and intensities, making it a decent substitute for a foundation.
The product applies flawlessly (use itCosmetic’s exclusive Heavenly Skin-Smoothing Complexion brush -$48 – shown in my photo on the right) or the sponge applicator that comes with the compact (shown in the open compact in my photo above ).
When you swirl the brush or puff in the solid product, transforms it into a ultra-lightweight serum foundation.
The look is truly flawless and it feels like you don’t have a lot of “gunk” on your face.
Pick Your Color
Unlike a lot of foundations and especially BB and CC creams that are available only in one color, Confidence in a Compact has 7 color choices: Fair, Light, Medium, Medium Tan, Tan, Rich and Deep.
As with most foundations, you have to find the one that suits you best.
For example, choosing between fair and light? Fair is very light, and I choose medium, but light worked well too.
The names might be a bit confusing but the color chart above gives you a good idea of what to select.
What makes this more impressive are the results (*claimed by itCosmetics in their clinical studies).
100% of people who tried this product had improved skin barrier repair, 97% showed immediate and improved skin hydration, 94% said it evens out skin tone, and 90% said it improved skin texture*
I can’t quantify all of this, but I can say that my skin looked immediately better. And, of time, these proven ingredients should help deal with lines and wrinkles and other issues such as discoloration, pore size, and firmness of the skin.
I want this mighty multi-tasker in multiples!
