Firstly, yes, I am the last woman in the world to try some cult Benefit products:) To be honest I didn't know much about the brand before I ventured into the beauty blogosphere around six months ago. But since than I've read hundreds of reviews featuring Benefit cosmetics and I've been curious about some of the most popular products but as they are quite pricey I haven't bought any. So when I saw You Beauty Discovery has a Limited Edition Box with trial sizes of a few cult Benefit products for only £14.95 I ordered straight away.
Items of the box:
Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15 PA++ which claims to hydrate, protect & comfort the skin with an oil-free, lightweight formula. It's a 8.9ml sample in a cute glass bottle which looks very nice on a shelf but it's totally impractical for dispensing the cream. Anyway, I've used it a few times and I really like it, my skin feels hydrated and is shine free for a good part of the day. I'm not sure though if I would purchase a regular size for £21.50 (50ml) as for this price I could get a much better moisturiser.
It's Potent! Eye Cream fades dark circles & helps smooth fine lines for brighter, younger-looking eyes. My night eye cream finished a few days ago so I've been using this instead and while I'm not expecting any miracles with this 3g sample I'm enjoying it and I want to see if it will fade my under eye dark circles. RRP £25.50 (14g)
Benetint original rose-tinted stain for lips and cheeks. I've used it already and I love it for my cheeks, it gives such a lovely natural rosy flush of colour that lasts very long on my oily skin. I will be very tempted to get a full size, RRP £24.50 (12.5ml), when this 2.5ml sample is finished.
The POREfessional, I'm sure it doesn't need any introduction, it's the most raved about primer to minimise the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother skin. I've wanted to try this for very long time as I am always looking for products to minimise the appearance of my pores and extend the life of my make up. I used it only a couple of times but I like it already, my skin felt and looked perfected. I shall see if it's really worth the hype and the money, RRP £24.50 (22ml).
They're Real! Mascara, one of the most famous mascaras which suppose to lengthen, curl, volumize, lift & separate eye lashes. Unfortunately it didn't impress me, it didn't curl, nor separate my lashes and in my opinion it's not any better than some high street mascaras. Not worth the money RRP £19.50 (8.5g)
Big Easy Bigger than BB, one-use sample sachet, liquid-to-powder formula that balances moisture & controls oil. It was a very small sample, so I can't really form any opinion on this as I wasn't even able to apply it all over my face but from what I could notice it gives nice matte finish with light to medium coverage. A big plus is it contains SPF35, perfect for sunny days. I just wish it was a bigger size sample to try. RRP £27.50 (35ml)
