FAQ

  • How do I avoid pilling when applying C Beyond?

    1. SHAKE IT UP: Shake C Beyond vigorously for at least 10 seconds before dispensing. The formula contains a high volume of powders suspended in oil so this step is essential for an even application.

    2. BE GENTLE: Dispense onto fingertips and/or apply directly onto face, patting lightly and smoothing. DO NOT rub the formula between palms or fingertips before applying—this will cause pilling.

    3. ALL SET: Once applied, allow C Beyond to fully absorb into skin without touching or manipulating it further. Wait at least 60 seconds before applying makeup.

    4. JUST IN CASE: If your skin is very dry and requires additional moisture, we suggest using an oil-based product prior to applying C Beyond. We recommend a simple oil like Jojoba, Squalane or Meadowfoam Seed, which are all found in the C Beyond formula. These three oils mix well with C Beyond and will provide a boosted layer of moisture underneath C Beyond.

  • What shade am I?

    C Beyond’s three tones are designed to neutralize the white cast from mineral SPF—not add a tint to your skin—so they’re flexible. Choose the tone closest to your skin tone, or contact us for help. If you’re in between tones, go with the lighter one.

  • Does C Beyond provide any coverage?

    C Beyond won’t add any coverage. The translucent formula has a small amount of sheer pigment to neutralize the white cast normally seen with mineral SPF. For more coverage, apply it as a base underneath your favorite ILIA complexion product.

  • Can I apply C Beyond on top of other skincare products?

    Yes. C Beyond can be worn on its own, but you can also apply it after your normal skincare routine. For best results, allow any skincare products to absorb fully before applying C Beyond.

  • How much C Beyond should I use?

    Use as much as you need to apply a generous, even layer that covers your entire face.

  • Why are some of the ingredients encapsulated?

    To preserve their potency and stability, Vitamin C, Niacinamide, and Non-Nano Zinc Oxide are enclosed in microcapsules that dissolve on contact with skin.

How to Use

  1. SHAKE IT UP

    2 BE GENTLE

    Angle the pump downward and dispense onto fingertips and/or directly onto face, patting lightly and smoothing over skin. DO NOT rub the formula before or after applying—this will cause pilling.

  3. ALL SET

    3 ALL SET

  4. JUST IN CASE

    4 JUST IN CASE

    If your skin needs more moisture, we suggest an oil-based product prior to applying C Beyond—like a singular oil such as plant-based Squalane, which is found in C Beyond. Feel free to experiment with other moisturizers to see what works best for your skin.

Sasha's Tip

“I love using C Beyond with some True Skin Serum Concealer on top to spot conceal. On the weekends, it’s usually all I apply to ensure there is broad-spectrum, mineral SPF 40 protection and a strong dose of skincare.”
