Product Review: Benefit b.right Skincare Range
When I did my recent Benefit order I decided to pick up the limited edition sample set of some of the products from their new b.right skin care, having already fallen head over heels for the Refined Facial Polish in my review. The set includes a sample size of their It’s Potent! eye cream, Foamingly Clean face wash and Triple Performing Facial Emulation. I’d already tried some of the eye cream on the back of my hand at the counter and was not too sure about it, but decided to give it a go to see how it held up against my all tome favourite eye cream, Clinique’s All About Eyes. It has a creamy texture and a bit of a strong smell, but seemed to do the same job, more creamy that Clinique’s offering which is more like a gel. It works, and I’m totally in love with the little glass jar it came in, but I still think I prefer using gel products around my eyes. Also, after a few days my eye area started to feel dry and raw which is what happens when I have an reaction to a product. I usually don’t have problems with Benefit products, so I was really surprised at this. Next I tried the Foamingly Clean face wash. I really liked how creamy it was, and how well it foamed (it lives up to its name!) It also had a pleasant scent but personally I still prefer the facial polish because I don’t like the tight, squeaky clean feeling my face was left with, but that is a personal preference, and this is a really good product and my skin felt much cleaner, clearer and brighter after using it. Finally I tried the face lotion: Triple Performing Facial Emulation with SPF 15. Again, this product does its job, smells okay but is not to my personal preference, being just a moisturiser that reminds me of Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion – not buttery or gel like enough for my liking, but still has been holding up as well as any other products I regularly use over the last few days.
The whole collection claims to leave your skin looking brighter, and all these products do do just that (especially when you use them together). My skin looked better, healthier and brighter and I really loved the effect. I will be replacing my Clinique 7 Day Scrub with the Facial Polish when it runs out, and I’ve tried the b.right face cream on the back of my hand at the counter, and I think it might be a strong contender for my new face cream, and I’m still not completely happy with the thicker creams I’ve tried from Clinique to compliment my everyday Moisture Surge routeen.
Have you tried any of Benefit’s new b.right range? What do you think of it?
