Benefit Haul & Review




I have never been a huge fan of Benefit's products. It's not that I dislike them, more just that I haven't really tried many of them! However when I was in England this spring I was given a few samples from them including the 'It's Potent' eye cream and 'Triple Performing Facial Emulsion) day cream. These two little samples have just been laying in my drawer and I haven't given them much interest until a few weeks ago when I figured I'd give them a go. At the time my skin was pretty good but I was still blown away by how incredible the day cream worked. It felt smoother, looked brighter and clearer after just a few days. The eye cream didn't do miracles but it worked well none the less. Anyway, I ended up running out of both and saw that my skin didn't like the separation from its new friends so I decided to order the day cream along with another lusted after goodie from Benefit, the famous Hoola bronzer. 

During the week I didn't use the 'triple performance facial emulsion' (couldn't have chosen a shorter name eh, benefit?) my skin went from good to not so good, aka a massive spot on my chin plus quite a few mini spots here and there. But again, as soon as I started slapping the stuff back on my face it cleared up. Miracle worker? Maybe, but there's something in it that just works.

Hoola has also quickly found a place in my everyday routine and so far I am loving the natural, smooth and warm (but not orange) contour/bronzing colour it gives.

That's it for now, I'm sorry about the lack of posts this past week - it's been pretty crazy with uni preparations, a family wedding and work so I haven't had the time but I'll get back into the swing of things now!

Lots of Love,
Em
