benefit skincare gems

benefit skincare review swatch photo

I’ve tried a few bits from the Benefit skincare range a long time ago. Somne of the products from their B.Right. The focus of the B.Right range is all about moisture and prepping the skin. Hydrated skin is happy skin.

First off the Benefit Moisture Prep Toning Lotion - a toner which soothes, hydrates and calms the skin. Applied to fresh skin it cools and refreshes to give a dewy fresh feel. Benefit Dream Screen is a super lightweight SPF formula which feels dreamy and smooths out on the skin. I hate wearing thick, greasy smothering SPF in the summer and this fits the bill as the perfect skin protector. A good mix between a SPF and a primer as it smoothes out the skin and keeps oiliness to a minimum. Another stand out product from the range is the Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream. Super creamy, cooling, hydrating and excellent at looking after tired puffy eyes. I’m so indifferent to eye creams and I feel like this blows them all out the water. I like to apply lightly to boost hydration or apply a thick layer as an eye mask.

Benefit are incredibly proud of their skincare range and really push the point that it "simply works". It's really interesting to see a brand so invested in a skincare range. They are so sure about it that they actually have a 28 day return policy on all their skincare which is the first for a UK high end brand. I cant think about the amount of times I’ve bought skincare, hated it and had to keep it. I think it’s a great policy and hopefully encourage a few people to try out the range! I do think the range as a whole is a bit hit and miss, but the products I mention in this post are gems within the range.

  11. love the design of the products ♥♥

  12. I really love their packaging on these, so cute!

  13. I haven't tried any of their skincare but have been really wanting to for a while, i'm a sucker for packaging and think Benefits is always so cute and the skincare in no exception. I didn't realise they offer a money back policy, this is great and definitely something that would encourage me to try it even more.

  17. I've tried the eye cream and the toner and I absolutely love both; I also think their total moisture cream is fantastic as well for a nighttime moisturizer!

  20. I've never really considered Benefit when buying new skincare items, but after reading this, I will definitely give them a chance. The toning lotion sounds so refreshing on a day like today!

  21. The dream screen sounds amazing, its so hard to find products with a lightweight texture and SPF nowadays!

  22. Never really heard much about Benefit skincare until recently.
    I really like the sound of the toning lotion!

  23. I tried Benefit skincare a few years ago. I really like it!


  24. I have used these once, wasn't to found of them they do smell wonderful though.

  25. The downside to Benefit skincare is that it does, unfortunately, contain parabens. Not into that!

  26. I love Benefit skincare. My favorites are the It's Potent Eye Cream and the Refined Finish face wash. Great post!

  27. i like that you can return them, i've been lumped with brands that made me break out and costs loads which is a waste
