I love Benefit. I swear by their 'They're Real' mascara, always reach for Hoola Bronzer and can't live without High Beam to brighten my complexion. I've never really looked into their skincare though.
Whilst at the Benefit counter in Bournemouth at the weekend, I got chatting to the Boutique Manager Sophie, who suggested products for my dry skin (and told me make-up wipes are worse than I thought, despite washing and cleansing!)
Therefore, I picked up this skin care set full of 6 travel size samples for only £10. Also known as the 'b.right radiant' set, I thought it would be a great way for me to try Benefit skincare before spending the money on the full size products.
The kit comes with:
- Refined Finish Facial Polish - smoothest surface facial exfoliator
- Triple Performing Facial Emulsion - sheer oil-free facial lotion SPF 15
- Total Moisture Facial Cream - Hydra-concentrated facial cream
- It's Potent! Eye Cream - Brightening eye cream to fade dark circles
- Moisture Prep Toning Lotion - Smoothing lotion to prep face for mosturizer
- Foamingly Clean Facial Wash - 1-Step gentle facial wash
I absolutely love the fact the packaging is actually a clear bag, perfect for taking travelling, especially as I stay between my house and the boyfriends half the week.
The sizes of the products are generous enough (roughly 9g each), you can't complain for only a tenner. They would probably last between 1-2 weeks. This is plenty of time to try out and see what you do or don't like. I would also probably recommend this more for people with dry skin.
The packaging of the products is simplistic and very sleek. Unlike Benefit's famous 'fun' prints and names these are clearer, something I really like about the range.
I also LOVE the smell! I've been trying all sorts of skincare recently and the biggest off-putter is the smell! My Clinique moisturiser is amazing but stinks of play-dough, yuck. These are gorgeous, I can't say I dislike any of them. Nothing is doubled up either, which often happens to make a set look like it has more inside.
However, I do have a down-fall! I'm still learning about skin care, but I felt a little lost working out what everything was for! As a beginner it's not very easy, despite having an information leaflet inside. Would be good to have a 'step-by-step' or something. I mean, what's the difference between the 'Triple Performing Facial Emulsion' and the 'Total Moisture Facial Cream'? Moisturisers? Is one for morning or night?
Check out their advert I found on YouTube, might be quite helpful if you are interested in their Skincare range!
