Review: Benefit B. Right Skincare
So as promised I'm back and blogging more regularly :) Nice quick little review for you today.
I don't know about you but I feel like I'm always looking for new skincare to actually do what it says and make my skin look amazing. This is an absolute priority for me at the moment as for some reason my sun-cream on holiday brought my skin out in loads of spots and totally blocked my pores so I feel really rubbish about it at the moment.
Now although Benefit are well known for their amazing make-up products, they aren't a big skincare brand, but I've used their It's Potent eye cream and absolutely loved it so I thought I would try their cleanser and scrub and see if they're as good.
First things first I think the packaging of the boxes is really cute, I love the colours and the names of the products as well. I'm not as keen on the actual bottles inside because the plastic they're made out of picks up dirt and grime straight away so they can get a bit scruffy looking. However they're easy to use squeezy bottles that stand up easily on their lids.
Foamingly Clean costs £17.50 and Refined Finish costs £18.50. I think this is reasonable and about what I would expect to pay for skincare from a premium beauty brand.
Does it work?
I have combination skin so I like a cleanser that gives a really squeaky clean feeling and the Foamingly Clean cleanser definitely gives that. A tiny little bit goes such a long way and it foams up with water to make a really rich lather. It also smells really clean and fresh. Benefit claim this is a brightening cleanser and will make skin look more radiant and it does actually work, my skin does look brighter already and I've only used it a few times. Another good thing about this cleanser is it actually does remove your make-up without really stinging your eyes.
I love using exfoliating products anyway because I think they make your skin feel so fresh and smooth, but I LOVE this product! The exfoliating beads are really small and gritty so it gives such a good scrub without feeling like it's actually ripping your skin off. It also contains seaweed and clay so it's supposed to help draw out impurities and refine pores which definitely appeals to me as I struggle with open pores. My skin felt so smooth from just using this scrub once and it's really helping get rid of that horrible bumpy feeling you get when your pores are blocked. This scrub also smells really fresh, with a botanical sort of scent.
Overall I'm really impressed with both of these products, I've definitely noticed an improvement in my skin from using them, and I've found them really nice to use.
Have any of you tried Benefit's skincare range?
