Bye Bye Foundation Review
Let’s be honest for a second: you have more chances of meeting your soulmate than finding a foundation that matches your skin. You might think we’re exaggerating, but have you ever entered a beauty shop? There are so many products that promise to provide full-coverage, nurture your skin, and provide a flawless look that you could spend an entire week testing and you could still leave empty handed.
Wouldn’t be great if you could find a product that corrects, perfects, and protects your skin at the same time?
We thought that too. So, when we heard about Bye Bye Foundation, a full coverage moisturizer, we were eager to try it.
Read on to find out if this product is worth your attention and your money.
The IT Cosmetics Story
Bye Bye Foundation is a moisturizing cream created by IT Cosmetics that promises to nourish and protect your skin while also covering your imperfections. It was developed by Jamie Kern Lima, a former newscaster, and Miss USA contestant. According to Lima, she had difficulties finding cosmetics that wouldn’t cake her face. Moreover, since she suffered from rosacea, it was almost impossible to find products that wouldn’t clog her pores and caused her skin to breakout.
That’s how she decided to create a line of cosmetics that provide full coverage while also being gentle on the skin.
The Bye Bye Foundation Promise
Bye Bye Foundation is a moisturizing cream that promises to cover every minor imperfection while caring for your skin. Although it has the power to hide fine lines, dark spots, visible pores, acne, and other imperfections instantly, the company also claims that Bye Bye Foundation can do more than similar products. In addition to making your skin look flawless, the product also contains anti-aging ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, and peptides that can correct the look of aging skin.
Due to their proprietary 3D Skin Flex Technology, Bye Bye Foundation delivers a full yet lightweight coverage that lasts all day long. The company even claims that this moisturizing cream will continue to nourish your skin even when you take it off at night.
To top it all off, Bye Bye Foundation also comes in four different shades and provides SPF 50 properties that will protect your skin from sun damage.
It also sounds amazing, but is any of this true? Let’s take a close look at their promises and analyze them.
According to Bye Bye Foundation’s website, you only need ten days to notice a significant improvement in your skin’s appearance. According to one clinical study, 96% of the women who used Bye Bye Foundation reported that their skin looked smoother than usual after ten days while 85% of them saw a reduction in visible wrinkles. 77% of women claimed that the size of their pores reduced significantly after only ten days.
It’s worth noting that this wasn’t an independent research and there aren’t any other clinical studies to further prove the effectiveness of this product. However, some of the ingredients this moisturizing cream contains have been shown to play a crucial role in maintaining the skin healthy and youthful.
There’s another claim that we need to address. To emphasize how lightweight their product is, IT Cosmetics claims that you can even sleep with Bye Bye Foundation on and it won’t clog your pores or cause any breakouts. We don’t recommend you do that. It doesn’t matter how gentle the cream is; a healthy beauty routine involves cleansing your skin from the impurities that accumulate on your skin during the day.
Think about it this way: you could sleep fully dressed and with your shoes on, but that doesn’t mean that you should do it. The same goes for going to sleep without cleansing your face.
The 3D Skin Flex Technology
How can Bye Bye Foundation provide full coverage and protect your skin at the same time? According to their website, it’s all due to their 3D Skin Flex Technology that targets skin problems on three levels:
- It Corrects: Due to a powerful blend of anti-aging ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and peptides, Bye Bye Foundation moisturizes and helps minimize the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.
- It Perfects: Bye Bye Foundation contains light-diffusing pigments that cover your skin’s imperfections, giving you an even look that doesn’t cake, crack or crease.
- It Protects: Bye Bye Foundation also acts as an SPF 50 sunscreen that will protect your skin from the sun.
Hyaluronic acid and peptides are known for their collagen-boosting effects, so Bye Bye Foundation can truly correct some of your skin’s imperfection. However, these ingredients can be found in most anti-aging products. More than that, IT Cosmetics doesn’t mention the percentage of each ingredient.
As far as the “perfect” part is concerned, it’s a bit hard to be objective. Each person has its own idea of what “perfect coverage” means. We were happy with the way Bye Bye Foundation covered our imperfections and the natural look it provided, but you might prefer a heavy, Photoshop-like coverage.
How to Use Bye Bye Foundation
Use Bye Bye Foundation in the morning after you’ve cleansed your skin and removed any dirt or buildup that accumulated overnight. You can also apply a moisturizer beforehand to nurture your skin deeply.
Apply Bye Bye Foundation as you would any regular cosmetic product. Use a brush or your fingers to apply thin layers to cover your skin imperfections and create an even skin tone.
How Much Does It Cost?
A 32 ml bottle cost $65. Bye Bye Foundation also comes with a 60-days money back guarantee that you can request even if you’ve used the product. All you have to do is contact a sales representative within this timeframe.
Another important thing that must be noted is that once you purchase a product, you’ll get included in IT Cosmetics’ auto-ship program. You’ll have to contact a sales agent to unsubscribe.
Bye Bye Foundation makes some bold claims that they can’t backup, and their auto-ship program can be a bit annoying. But, overall, this moisturizing cream does a good job at nourishing your skin and helping you achieve a flawless, even appearance.
