If you have been reading my latest blog posts this year, you will have learnt that one of my goals for 2018 is to look after my skin more. So, to help me with this, I thought I should treat myself to some new skin care!
I’ve heard great things about the Benefit Total Moisture moisturising face cream and wanted to try it for ages, so when this set caught my eye, I couldn’t resist!
What Benefit say: “Skin & brows get some loving with this special limited-edition skincare set…all in a collectible, reusable tin! Instantly help fade the appearance of dark circles, boost radiance and maintain hydration with our creams & serum. Plus, condition and prime brows for fullness with the nutrient-rich formula of BROWVO! conditioning primer.”
“How to apply: Wear BROWVO! conditioning primer under brow makeup or apply before bed and let the conditioning formula work its magic! Get fresh with instant comeback facial serum…use before any other skincare or as an intensive treatment under day cream. Apply total moisture face cream all over face for delightful, concentrated hydration. Apply it’s potent! eye cream delicately under the eyes to help fade the appearance of those pesky dark circles.”
The set contains:
BROWVO! conditioning primer full-size 3ml
Total Moisture face cream full-size 48.2g
It’s Potent! eye cream fun-size 3g
Instant Comeback facial serum fun-size 5ml
Considering it was the face cream I was buying it for, to get one other full size product and two mini ones was ideal. The face cream is thick and luxurious feeling, with a clean scent. It soaks into the skin straight away, without leaving skins greasy. I have been using this at night before bed and my skin is super soft. I tried once under makeup, however I feel I need a lighter moisturiser so been sticking to wearing my L’oreal Triple Active one during the day, and keeping this for at night. The packaging is cute and vintage, with its dotted glass jar and cork-effect lid.
As someone with patchy, sparse brows, I was excited to try to the Browvo Conditioning Primer! Inside the modern, silver tube is a soft plastic applicator, with a twist at the bottom to release the primer. I have only tried it at night as a treatment not under makeup, although haven’t been wearing for long enough to notice any difference, so will report back on this one or do a separate review!
I have been trying the It’s Potent! eye cream for a few weeks now and my eyes do look a little brighter, and I’ve noticed I haven’t had as many bags under my eyes so maybe it is the cream working! The Instant Comeback serum is in the cutest little bottle, that looks like something that you get in a kids toy make up set – but in a good way! The bottle is a sweet turquoise colour and has the same dotted design as the Total Moisture. I use this every few nights under the moisturiser and has definitely put the glow back in my dull, winter skin. It sinks in straight away and leaves my skin velvety soft.
Now for the packaging! The products come encased in a tin globe with a cartoon of the Perry Building in San Francisco, according to Benefit the tin is reusable but as it’s a funny shape i’m not quite sure what for, however, it is quite cool to have on display I suppose!
Overall, this is a great set, priced at £39.50 it’s amazing value considering it contains two full size products and is worth £68. I would definitely recommend this set, and definitely the Total Moisture face cream!
