Benefit Skincare

Thank goodness for the Benefit boutique in Carnaby Street! After a few disappointing trips to the Benefit brow bar in Debenhams on Oxford Street, I was rather concerned as to where I would get my eyebrows shaped in the future. All the girls in the boutique were delightful, helpful and very professional. I finally got my eyebrows shaped to the standard I expect. Whilst I was waiting for my tint to set in, the lovely Vicki introduced me to some of their skincare. Now I'm not one to believe the hype. I find makeup brands that venture into skincare a bit cliche. I think well what do they know about skincare? Anyway I needed a new serum and moisturiser so gave in to the Triple Performing Facial Emulsion and the Instant Comeback Facial Serum.  When I tested these on my hands I was more than amazed! They smelled phenomenal to start with and they melted beautifully into my parched skin. I was sold! Packaging aside this is serious skincare. The Triple Performing moisturiser is oil free and contains SPF 15 PA ++ It has a tri-radiance complex that helps capture and maintain water on the skins surface. This works perfectly under makeup, it instantly hydrates my oily skin without leaving it greasy or uncomfortable. The serum is an age-defying booster worn under your moisturiser for maximum effect. It's fast absorbing and helps protect against visible signs of ageing. It also contains the tri-radiance complex locking in moisture. I must say I have been using these for the past week now and I am really enjoying them. My skin is no longer in a frenzy. It looks bright and radiant and feels soft and supple. No gimmick here, just great skin! 

Have you tired any of Benefits skincare? What do you think?
