Let's talk about the new-ish Secret Sauce moisturizer from IT Cosmetics. This is going to be a short review.

The packaging is gorgeous and feels super luxe. It's glass, it's heavy, and it's iridescent. What more could you want?

So what does this moisturizer do? Well, here are the claims.

This moisturizer is a heavier cream than I'm used to. It does take a little longer to absorb, but I will use this at night before bed and it sinks in as I sleep. In the morning, my skin is extremely soft and smooth. This does give a radiant glow and can absolutely be used in the morning as well, but if you're using it before makeup I recommend allowing at least 20 minutes for it to really sink in.

This does not clog my pores or break me out and my skin is sensitive. It seems to be helping with fine lines and definitely gives my skin a hydrated glow.

Overall, I really like it. I alternate this with the Confidence in a Cream Moisturizer, as well as the Urban Decay moisturizer. I like variety, what can I say? Haha, no here's the thing. Sometimes, I don't need as much hydration in the morning and I use the Confidence in a Cream, which is super hydrating but not AS hydrating or heavy. Sometimes, I forget moisturizer until it's time to put on my makeup and then I grab the UD moisturizer because it's a gel that sinks in instantly while hydrating well. 

Moral of the story? I have three amazing moisturizers that I alternate depending on the situation. 

You can find the Secret Sauce Moisturizer at It Cosmetics website & Sephora.

  1. I hadn't heard of this product before! I never make it up to Ulta where I can buy IT Cosmetics but I have liked their stuff!

  2. I definitely rotate moisturizers based on time of day and season. I find heavier creams are best for night and/or winter.

  3. Always good to hear about a good moisturizer!

  4. Looks like good stuff. I didn't know that It was doing skin care now!

  5. I love the packaging of It!

  6. I might want to give this one a try

  7. I'm about halfway through my jar and I'm hoping they have a good sale soon. I like this more than their Confidence in a Cream moisturizer though it will be too heavy in hot months.

  8. Sounds like a nice moisturizer

  9. That sounds really nice. I'm so impatient with moisturizer before makeup, (lazy I guess), so I'll make sure to remember that tip if I ever purchase this.

  10. This would be something I have to use at night as I don't have the time in the mornings to wait for absorption before makeup application.

  11. Moisturizing and not heavy!? Sound like a winner to me!
