Cherry Pie : Benefit b.right radiant skincare

26 June 2011

Benefit b.right radiant skincare

As I sit here watching Vince pack, I thought I'd whip up a quick blog post. Of course, being the organised one, I have already done my packing so can relax on this sunny Sunday! I've got two days left at work and we'll finally be moving on Wednesday. I suppose Monday and Tuesday evening are going to be spent cleaning the house and getting all the last minute bits and pieces sorted. I hate packing! Anyway, on with the post!

I don't know what made me buy this miniature Benefit b.right Skincare kit as I already have so many skincare products as it is. However, I've come to realise that after a few weeks, my skin tends to get used to whichever products I'm using and they effectively stop working so I need a few different things to keep things fresh.

L-R: Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, Foamingly Clean Facial Wash, It's Potent Eye Cream

When I purchased this online I didn't really pay attention to the size of the products in the box. I really should have as they are absolutely tiny, smaller than travel size! While that's cute, it makes it a bit difficult to actually get any product out. When I put my little finger into the eye-cream, it all get's stuck under my nail and I have to bend the face wash bottle in half to get anything out of it. I also have to violently shake the glass bottle and dab it on my finger in order to get any product.

While that is quite annoying, I can put up with it as the collection is really sweet and nicely packaged. The bottles, especially the glass one, make it look quite expensive still, which is probably why the gigantic full-sized products are priced a tad high. With this brand you're not only paying for the product, but the name as well, so high prices are to be expected.

To be completely honest with you, I thought the products would be too harsh for my skin, which is what I find with many products, however, I was pleasantly surprised when I used these as they haven't turned out to be as harsh as I first thought. All three of the products have an OK scent, at first it was a bit strong but I got used it.

The Foamingly Clean Facial Wash is really rather lovely. It's a thick consistency and has teeny tiny beans within it for a little exfoliation. Normally this worries me, as my skin is easily irritated, but it seems to be fine. The product is very gentle and my skin feels thoroughly clean afterwards.

The gorgeously packaged Triple Performing Facial Emulsion is supposed to hydrate, protect and comfort the skin with an oil-free formula and it ticks every box. My usual moisturising cream leaves my face a bit oily but this one sinks in nicely and I don't feel any tingling sensation either! Usually when I use new products, I feel like I need to add my trusty moisturiser on top but with this, I didn't need to. I really feel like it's been doing my skin some good and it contains SPF 15 which is always a good thing!

Eye creams are always a tricky one for me as I can honestly never tell the difference. I pop on the It's Potent Eye Cream in the hope that it will make my eyes look less tired but I haven't noticed a major different myself. It's still a lovely product and much like the emulsion, it sinks in nicely.

Hopefully this range will work out for me. I would love to see them bring out some kind of redness relief product as I would really benefit from it. I will keep trialling these sample sizes until I'm ready to make a bigger purchase! Luckily, in this week's Grazia magazine there was a voucher for another free kit so I have enough to last for the time being!

I would highly recommend this range. With skin as sensitive and irritated as mine I thought it would be a huge no-no but it's working out well!
