I’m quickly approaching 30 and I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that, in order to maintain my skin, I actually need to do something to protect it.

I’ve always shied away from using sunscreen, because of my oily skin. I felt most formulas would make me look shinny and cause my skin to break out.

With an upcoming planned vacation and the warmer months finally approaching, I went to Sephora to find something that I could use every day to protect my skin.

A sales associate introduced me to It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better™ CC+™ Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40. I was leery of an SPF actually being able to stay matte on my face. After sampling the product for a week tough, I was absolutely convinced.

The cream gives you full and buildable coverage, while also letting the skin breathe. Most importantly, it stays on matte for an entire day. I’m also impressed with the range of shades that are available. As someone with brown skin and red undertones, I’ve often found it difficult to find brands that suit all of my needs, but the tan version was perfect. I now find myself reaching for it everyday.

“This multitasking, complexion-perfecting breakthrough instantly camouflages skin imperfections including dark spots without creasing or cracking and is clinically tested to reduce shine and control oil for up to 12 hours,” says the Sephora website.

The cream, in addition to giving me full coverage and being a SPF 40 UVA/UVB sunscreen, also acts as a brightening colour corrector, hydrating anti-aging serum, poreless finish primer, dark spot concealer, and moisturizing day cream.

The bestseller is also beloved on the Sephora website.

“This product is perfect if you're looking for an every day natural glowing look,” wrote one customer. “It's an easy quick application and as a bonus has an already set 40 SPF. I highly recommend this product for beginners and people who are looking for a quick basic summer coverage.”

“My skin but better! I love this product,” raved another. “I use it everyday for every occasion and bring it with me everywhere i go. Easy to apply, it covers well but still looks natural. I don’t feel it on my skin.”

“Coverage looks super natural - your skin but better, but is also buildable where needed,” said a happy reviewer. “It didn't make my skin dry or greasy, it just looked and felt great all day. Love it.”
