"it Cosmetics" - Review & Giveaway

Cosmetics   . . . . . Women of all ages need to pay attention to their skin. What it is exposed to. What impacts it daily. What cleaning methods they use. What care they take of the skin. What products they use. Where and how they abuse their skin. How the products impact their skin.

We're all different and we all (we women, that is) must do that which best suits our skin, our budget, our schedule. But do something, we MUST!

As my long deceased aunt who had flawless skin when she died at 90 years of age once said, "You cream your face every day and every night! Use SOMETHING!" Of course she didn't have access to the plethora of products so readily available today on the market, but she had SOMETHING and she used SOMETHING because her skin was stunningly smooth and clear. Now let's talk about a new company (to me, at least) and a couple of products they sent me to try out.

Well, my photography isn't the best, but these are the two products: No. 50 Serum Collagen Veil Anti-Aging Primer and Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Waterproof Concealer with Collagen and Vitamins C&K.  First, we take care of our skin. That is where the 50 Serum Collagen Veil product comes in. So we'll talk about it first.

No. 50 Serum Anti-Aging Collagen Veil Primer - A true beauty breakthrough, No. 50 Serum Anti-Aging Collagen Veil Primer is a multi-tasking luxe concentrated hydrating primer and serum in one, infused in with more than 50 beneficial ingredients, including hydrating anti-aging peptides, collagen, niacin, essential lipid-rich oils, vitamins, extracts and botanicals to nurture your skin and lock in moisture as it prepares it for flawless makeup application.  (information taken from the it Cosmetics website)

 I have used the No. 50 Serum for about a week now either alone or with my day or night moisturizer. This is a gently fragranced cream that glides over your skin and makes it feel so good.  It primes the skin prior to applying your foundation. I really like the properties of this serum. The botanicals are real "winners" in my book and it has lots of vitamins infused in the serum. All good! I think it is really cute that it has been dubbed Baby Skin in a Bottle!

Now let's talk about the Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Waterproof Concealer.  From the it Cosmetics website:
Working hand in hand with the leading plastic surgeons in Brazil, Bye Bye Under Eye was created as a full coverage, highly pigmented anti-aging concealer that utilizes truly innovative technology and ingredients - giving women the power to finally say "bye –bye!" to stubborn under-eye issues. Bye Bye Under Eye offers a waterproof, yet moisturizing, formula that stays put no matter what. The truly innovative formula contains high concentrations of Vitamins K, A, C, E and Collagen, which are clinically proven to reduce under eye puffiness and discoloration while strengthening the delicate skin of the under eye area. More than just full coverage for under the eyes, this formula was developed, tested and is now used to conceal facial bruising and swelling on the face and body of surgery patients in the offices of some of the leading plastic surgeons in Brazil. Hypo-allergenic and non-comedogenic.
 I've used it for about a week now and the tube sent to me is a tad light, but the next shade might be a tad dark. So I simply put it on and touch it up a mite with my foundation to bring the color more in line with the rest of my face. This is a very dense product. It takes such a tiny bit to cover and you use your little pinky finger to apply it. Begin at the inner corner of the eye next to the nose (it usually looks a bit dark there, too, not just "under the eyes") and smooth down and up to cover the under eye area. I have also used a tiny little brush I had on hand and this works nicely, too. It covers. It will, hopefully, enrich the skin under the eyes. It has not been irritating to my sensitive eyes. It is a good product.

These two products are available at the it Cosmetics website and they really have a presence on QVC. The delightful ladies at it Cosmetics are also providing both of these products as a giveaway for one of Chat With Vera's  readers to vie for.
