Brand Overview

Bye Bye Redness Skin Relief Treatment Moisturizer gets an A+ for its ingredients but a D- for the packaging, which ultimately compromises the formula's efficacy.

That's so disappointing considering this decadent-feeling cream richly hydrates and relieves dry skin. More to the point, the mix of soothing agents, skin-replenishing and restoring ingredients, emollients, peptides and antioxidants are terrific for repairing redness-prone, sensitive skin.

But alas, jar packaging is an ill-fated choice for Bye Bye Redness Skin Relief Treatment Moisturizer because upon opening it, all the brilliant air-sensitive ingredients start deteriorating. There's also the fact that dipping your finger in each time further degrades the formula's stability. All those soothing antioxidants end up going to waste instead of helping your skin!

In airtight packaging this moisturizer would earn a higher rating, but until then... see our list of Best Moisturizers for top-notch options that aren't packaged in jars.

P.S. If you're wondering if this cream's green tint neutralizes redness on contact, the answer is no—it's too sheer to make a noticeable difference.

Pros:
  • Impressive blend of beneficial anti-agers and skin-calming ingredients.
  • Decadent cream texture glides across skin like a dream and alleviates dryness.
  • Fragrance-free formula.
Cons:
  • Jar packaging won't keep many of this formula's best ingredients stable.
  • Green tint doesn't noticeably neutralize redness.
Jar Packaging: Yes
Tested on animals: No
Bye Bye Redness Moisturizer helps neutralize and soothe the look of redness while providing deep hydration, and is gentle enough for even the most sensitive and dry skin. Perfect for a.m. and p.m., your redness-relieving moisturizer also smooths the look of lines and wrinkles, and is infused with anti-aging, skin-soothing colloidal oatmeal, aloe, cucumber, chamomile extract, avocado, chrysin, turmeric, collagen and peptides. Youll see powerful results instantly and more transformative results over time!

Strengths: Excellent color products, standout foundation and concealer options, impressive highlighters.

Weaknesses: Can be on the pricey side; has a few makeup products with exaggerated anti-aging claims.

IT Cosmetics (the IT stands for Innovative Technology) is the creation of Jamie Kern Lima, a former Miss USA pageant contestant and TV news anchor. Lima founded IT Cosmetics in 2008, selling her products in boutique stores and on QVC, then expanding into Canada in 2009. Since then, the line has gotten a lot of exposure with featured reports and stories on network television, including prominent mentions on the ABC reality show Dancing With the Stars.

The labels on most IT Cosmetics products reveal a variety of age-defying claims centered around ingredients like antioxidants, peptides, vitamins, and collagen. Those are indeed great additions to any cosmetic product, but unfortunately, the combination of compact or jar packaging among the formulas that include those helpful ingredients isnt a good thing.

Air exposure compromises ingredients like antioxidants and peptides, rendering them useless. While that doesnt affect the quality of the makeup, it is worth noting if you were hoping for an anti-aging edge from IT Cosmetics antioxidant-boosted blush or powders.

Of course, IT Cosmetics does have products that are absolutely worth checking out. The line boasts an excellent range of color products, highlighters, foundations and many more worth consideration. As with any line that has a mix of standouts and caveats, shopping using our reviews to guide you is a great way to ensure youll at least get your moneys worth, and your skin will be the better for it.
