IT Cosmetics Secret Sauce Review

Sponsored: Thanks everybody for the Thanksgiving wishes! The last skincare product I have from IT Cosmetics is their new Secret Sauce ($68 / 2 fl oz) moisturizer. The name always makes me smile. I instantly think about the secret sauce on a McDonald's Big Mac Hamburger. This moisturizer is suppose to be ultra hydrating. It features anti-aging peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, vitamin c and licorice root. It's for all skin types and reduces the look of discoloration, lines and wrinkles. Well, I've been using it for a month now and it's just ok to me. I found IT Cosmetic's Secret Sauce moisturizer to be heavier than IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream. I expected it to be! But in my opinion, it doesn't moisturize the skin as well or do any of those things it promises. I feel you can only use this moisturizer at night. I felt it sat atop the skin, instead of sinking into the skin. When I woke up the next morning, my skin only felt slightly moisturized. I have dry skin, so this didn't really work for me. Maybe it's better for Normal, Combination or Oily Skin Types. I MUCH PREFER It Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream moisturizer (link above) and would suggest you purchase that moisturizer instead. It feels really good to the skin. Other moisturizers I prefer for dry skin are Bobbi Brown's Vitamin Enriched Face Base. REN's Ultra Moisture Day Cream or V-Cense Night Revitalising Cream. I also like Lumene day & night cream (a great inexpensive option). Drunk Elephant also has a great nighttime moisturizing duo, you can find in the nighttime duo set (night serum & facial oil). I just feel there are better options out there. This was the only disappointing product out of IT Cosmetics ENTIRE skincare line! I loved everything else. It isn't bad. It just doesn't provide the level of moisture I expected. Overall, I am very impressed with IT Cosmetics skincare! I love it more than their makeup. I have four more makeup products to review of theirs and I will post those next week. Have you tried IT Cosmetics skincare? If so, let me know your thoughts. I want to thank IT Cosmetics for generously letting me try their skincare products and share my thoughts with my readers. Thank You!

  1. Shame that this is not moisturizing enough but maybe it'll work better in the warmer seasons.

  2. I have really oily skin so maybe it would be suited to my skin type better? I'd love to try a sample size.

  3. It's a shame that this wasn't a winner for you Kim! :( Great that there are alternatives that suit your skin type better though. It does have a very cool name, despite not really working, haha! :)

    Hope you are having a good weekend :) Have you done any sale shopping? I made the most of some time off earlier this week and shopped at a few stores but I haven't bought anything in the sales yet.

  4. Nice post!! Your blog is interesting!!

    I follow you. Mind following back?

  5. That’s too bad this didn’t work out well for you Kim! But I’m it’s the only dud for you out of their skin care that you tried! It’s nice to know that the majority of their skincare is good and worth checking out! I’ll skip out on this Moisturizer, since there’s others on my wish list from I’m cosmetics! Thanks for sharing, I hope you had a good thanksgiving!

  6. At least it was only this product that you didn't like Kim. At least the other stuff are good. Did you have a good Thanksgiving? I always forget that you guys are a month behind us. I haven't done any Black Friday shopping. How about you?

  7. Your recent reviews have really piqued my interest in IT Cosmetics skincare Kim! I have put a few products that you've liked on my wish list already but I so need to finish up my stash before trying anything new now. Hope you and your Mom had a pleasant Thanksgiving. We don't really celebrate but we did celebrate my husband's bday :)

  8. I've been curious of this product ever since it was released...just the name 'Secret Sauce' had me intrigued! That's a shame that it didn't work well though :(

  9. Every time I hear or read "secret sauce" I am automatically going to think of Maccas now bahahaha! Shame about this product, though one out of the majority isn't too bad. I've been wanting to try It out. A friend of mine RAVES about their mascara.


  10. LOL for the secret sauce on the Macdonalds burger. 😂 It is a strange name for a cream. I have never tried It Cosmetics skin care.

  11. Too bad its not as hydrating as much as you wanted. I'm looking forward for the makeup reviews :)


  12. It's too bad this cream didn't live up to expectations because it has such a fun name. But IT Cosmetics has definitely had some hits in your reviews, and you can't win every time with any brand. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, Kim!

  13. It's a shame this didn't impress you, although it sounds as though the rest of their skincare line makes up for it! I've only ever heard about this brand via blogging, as I'm not sure it's available in the UK? Either way, thanks for the further info Kim! Have a wonderful week :)

  14. What an odd name Kim ! too bad it did not deliver unlike the rest of the IT products that you have reviewed.

  15. Thanks for your honest review. I'm super picky with moisturizers I like them more light weight. I haven't really tried any IT cosmetics products besides a sample of their bye bye under eye. I def need to try more!

  16. The packaging of this product is really beautiful. It's a shame it did not work for you. Maybe it is better for the oily skin people. I see that you like It Cosmetics. Well! for anything It Cosmetics I can refer to your blog. Thanks for your honest reviews. :-)
