Illumikate CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ PA+++

Product Review (submitted on December 2, 2013):


At first, I was incredibly skeptical about this product, I've just heard about too many BB and CC creams that I thought this would be just another one that I'd feel "meh" about. The other thing I was skeptical about was the incomplete range of color. I have olive skin that tans easily and the darkest color this comes in is medium. I was certain this would never be dark enough for my skin. I went to an event at Nordstrom, where Kate Somerville was teaching a class. Once of the ladies who work at her clinic assured me that it would adjust to my own skin color after it's been applied. So I went ahead and bought this in medium. When I applied it, it was definitely too light; but I kept it on and after about ten minutes, it did adjust to my skin color! It makes my skin look incredible! I do have to note that this is the lightest my skin has been. In the past year, I've been on best rest, then working in an office and have not had any full days under the sun to give me the dark tan I normally have. If I were to get any darker than this, this color would definitely be too light, which is so unfortunate. I really really hope that they come out with one that is at least one or two shades darker than what they have available now. This would be a year round game changer for me if they came out with a darker shade! For now, this is a Winter and Spring game changer!
