hi guys thanks for joining me for the second video in my dead do poor dream product series the first one I did was on the NYC lavaud expel it by Demi Lovato thank you guys so much for the great feedback on that video I’m glad you’re enjoying this concept and I just think it’s a really fun way to basically review a product by way of comparison and seeing you know exactly how similar is it to this other thing is it better is it worse is it about the same and sometimes with dupes I truly feel like it will appear that one product is really being fashioned after another high end product that’s kind of the way I felt with that Lobot expalin with this video I feel like the comparison is definitely relevant but it’s maybe not quite as clear cut like this product is trying to be this product but I do think they have similar purposes and I’m going to be talking about this Neutrogena healthy skin anti aging Perfector and I’ll be comparing it very closely to this it cosmetics your skin but better CC plus color correcting full coverage cream just looking them both up on ulties website the Neutrogena sells for $13.99 and is available in six different shades and the it cosmetics is going to cost you $38 and it’s available in five shades packaging wise they are very similar you’re getting like a squeezy tube with a pump on the end really like having the pump because it helps me you know when I settle in on the exact amount of product I want to use each time I can be very consistent with it when there is a pump I wear it in the shade light to neutral 30 and the description here says it combines retinol SPF 20 moisturizer and blendable sheer coverage to give you beautiful younger looking skin even after you take it off and thank you to someone in the comment section it was either in the comment section or a tweet they said you should compare it to the it cosmetics and so this it cosmetics version I’ve been using for much longer this is really impressed me as being one of the best CC BB type products out there with both of these it’s kind of like moisturizer and a coverage product in one for some people with really dry skin I always say this but you kind of have to test drive these products and see okay is this enough moisture for my skin or next time around would I just apply a little bit of moisturizer first and then top these off for me for both these right now like I can wear these on their own and I don’t feel like I need any extra moisture what is always made the it cosmetics special for me I wear this in the shade medium by the way what is set this apart it’s got amazing sun protection with the SPF 50 and I just think the coverage is unmatched there has been no other CC BB type product on the market that has really provided as much coverage as this and I find it also has fabulous staying power for me and despite being a product that does have foundation like coverage it doesn’t look too thick on the skin it seems very natural so I am wearing both of these on my skin I’m wearing one on one side one on the other I’m going to go ahead and tell you which side is which I do have the Neutrogena on this side and the it cosmetics on this side and I’m going to go right into the demo so you can see these I use my fingers to apply them both and the Neutrogena it you know it’s got a really nice like light moisturizer type consistency but you can tell that there is some coverage there so I just blended this all over my skin I actually had pumped out a little more product than I might have needed just to get around half of my face I can tell it absolutely will even out my skin tone as a whole as far as little imperfections little like you know freckles and sunspots and things like that I can still see that stuff even after applying this product then I brought in the it cosmetics for the other side of my face this does have a thicker kind of richer consistency to the product you feel like it’s going to be a lot more moisturizing but really once I get it all blended out they feel about the same in terms of the amount of moisture they’re giving my skin but coverage is what’s really different about this I can tell just four minor flaws in the skin it can really even it out more you know if you’re going to want to use a concealer on the under eye area you’re probably still going to want to do that but in terms of covering up a little redness or a little bit of unevenness it does this very well so again right after application I can see I’ve got fuller coverage on the it cosmetics side the Neutrogena side did definitely do some things in terms of coverage but it’s not as full on it’s just more lightweight now I’ve been wearing these half and half on my face for several days actually and you know initially when you apply them this feels thicker it feels more rich and moisturizing but then like you give it a minute and they actually don’t feel that different I mean I feel like they’re both actually offering me a very similar level of moisture and in addition to these products what I have on my skin now I did under eye concealer and I said it and I have on some blush and bronzer but I didn’t like purposely go setting my whole skin with any powder and they end up just having a very similar feel it’s like these products kind of set but not in a real dry cakey way the skin feels soft it’s kind of just like a velvety type look to the skin but another difference I have noticed definitely is staying power I know they’re not really starting on the same playing field in terms of coverage but this does break down even faster I won’t say it totally disappeared on my skin but well I feel like I can see a certain amount of like little you know freckles and that’s a good gauge for me you know like redness around my nose I can see some of those things at the onset but later in the day I feel like I can see those things even more so and this one really just holds strong so I think what this really does come down to is your priorities in a product like if we’re comparing the Neutrogena not so much to this but to other drugstore BB creams tinted moisturizers that kind of thing this one stacks up really well because it’s got better coverage than most it doesn’t stay feeling tacky on the skin that was kind of a misleading claim because it says gives your skin a natural dewy finish I don’t feel like it appears dewy at all I think you blend it in and it almost feels like velvety soft it has kind of like a natural yet still a little bit matte finish on the skin you know both of these overall are matte and I like that about this product I think it enhanced the coverage or the appearance of coverage that gave even more because it wasn’t too shiny on my skin and I felt like it kind of sets somewhat plus this does contain retinol so if you’re looking for a product that contains some anti aging benefits it’s in there and it’s the kind of thing that I will continue to use but if you find yourself generally speaking having a major need for concealer on your skin be it the under eye acne scars redness things like that you’re still going to feel the need for that with this product with the it cosmetics it’s closer to being a one and done application like if you just wanted to throw one thing on your skin and it would double as your moisturizer and you just wanted to really quickly even some things out and really feel like you did have coverage this is better coverage and better staying power this is a lower price tag though so it’s kind of about what your priorities are with products like this I do think both can effectively double as a moisturizer and coverage product in one coverage and staying power tend to be two things that are pretty important to me with the product so I mean it cosmetics this is still my favorite so one of those situations where no we definitely don’t have a dupe for the cosmetics but I don’t think we have a total dud either because in the drugstore landscape of products I think this is a pretty great product so thank you guys so much for watching and I will see you soon bye..
