Benefit £10 Skincare Set!



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!





This is definitely a set I would give to a friend, its a great way to try Benefit Skincare products and it's really reasonable too. It's available on Feel Unique with Free delivery and a Free sample of Sun Beam!

  1. I'm like you in that I don't understand the difference between all the creams. I'm convinced that some of the products are virtually the same but just given different names! x

  5. I used the It's Potent Eye Cream and Triple Facial Emulsion last year and LOVED them. No seriously, LOVED them. I'd repurchase them if they weren't so darn pricey!

    To answer your question, the facial emulsion would be for daytime as it's got SPF PA+++ (which is better than just SPF moisturisers as it has been rated by two separate organizations).

    I found that the It's Potent eye cream ACTUALLY REDUCED MY UNDEREYE DARKNESS. Yep, a product that actually lives up to it's claim!

    My word of advice would be to watch out for the foaming cleanser because it probably contains sulfates to make it foam (and sulfates are majorly drying/stripping). Xxx

    Ps I heart Bournemouth!

  9. However the big brand name companies don't generally use them because they are often much more expensive than the chemical ingredients they use now, so cut into profits.
