I’m sure you’ve all seen them by now, but Benefit have got some absolute corker of a Christmas collection this year.
Not only are they collections of their amazing top products but they’re all in amazing collectable tins!
Obviously I want them all, in fact NEED them all.
I’m slowly making my way through them all and might have to get another as next months pay day treat….naughty!
My first purchase was made at the brand new Benefit Carnaby Street store, when we had an amazing day in London and popped in for a browse and tour from the lovely Alyson Rowe. (Post is here if you’d like a read!)
As soon as I saw the tins lined up on the counter I had to snap one up. At the time they were only available in the Carnaby Street store so I couldn’t resist an exclusive buy…obviously!
I’ve tried many of Benefit’s products, but by no means all of them and the one that stuck out to me from the collection was the Love Me B.right tin, as it contains skincare.
I was yet to try any skincare products from Benefit and the box is a lovely turquoise colour that would go in my room, essentially this one was sold the second I saw it!
I love the details on the tins, not only are the faces pretty funky but the words printed on top in gold are lush!
This collection contains 4 skincare products; Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, It’s Potent! Eye Cream, Total Moisture Facial Cream and of course a mini sample of their infamous Porefessional primer.
I’ve been using these for the past couple of weeks so have finally got around to writing my review. Here is what I think of them:
The Triple Performing Facial Emulsion is a full size moisturiser which is oil free and contains SPF 15.
This has been the moisturiser I’ve used in the morning and evening for the past few weeks, it sinks in quite easily and feels light on the skin.
My skin is combination so this was a relief as I didn’t want it to upset the oily t-zone I have and give my face extra shine.
It has also hydrated the drier areas of skin I have on the sides of my face which is the perfect combination for me. The fact it contains SPF is also a great addition, I’ve started applying it separately in the morning which can be a pain when you’re in a rush.
It’s Potent Eye Cream is also another full size product in the set. It contains a peptide complex to restore elasticity and firmness, botanical extracts to boost collagen and protect skin from free radical damage.
The cream is very thick and feels luxurious on the skin, my eyes are something I need to be very careful with so this was a massive positive for me. My eyes are so sensitive and I didn’t react to it at all.
The skin around my eyes was very hydrated as the cream sank in quickly. A tiny amount is enough to cover your whole eye area so I imagine this pot will last for a long time as there’s 14g in it.
I really enjoyed using this product as it was a lovely surprise to realise how much my skin loved it too.
The Total Moisture Facial Cream is a large sample size of a thick hydrating cream. This product is much thicker than the Facial Emulsion and I’ve been applying this at night as an extra boost of moisture for my skin.
It’s definitely thicker than the Facial Emulsion and is also more hydrating. This has been a treat for my skin in the nights when the weather has been colder and my skin drier as a result. I can imagine me using this a lot over the winter months and my skin is thanking me for it! However I cannot use this too often as it is significantly thicker and therefore may overload the oily areas of my skin.
The Porefessional primer sample is a nice touch, and I’ve already said previously that I’m a big fan of it and was gutted when it ran out recently!
This was a great collection though a few more samples of the other skincare products might have been more relevant, as I know they also do a facial wash and toner which would have been nice to try altogether.
What do you think of the Love Me B.right collection? Will you be snapping it up?
Have you picked up any others yet?
