Benefit B.right Skincare

I just thought I'd do a little review of the new(ish) Benefit B.right skincare range. I got these three minis a while ago as a freebie with Grazia, and have been using them regularly ever since. I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. To be honest the thing that got me most excited when I first heard about them was the packaging. I just love having pretty products on my dressing table, and these are so cute in an Alice in Wonderland kind of way. 

The products I got were the Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, the Foamingly Clean Facial Wash and the It's Potent! Eye Cream. They also do a toner, a 're-hydator', an exfoliator and another, richer moisturiser, which is targeted towards dry skin. I'll get straight to the point - I really do like the moisturiser. It smells divine, leaves my skin feeling soft and (I think - although it's sometimes hard to tell) it keeps my oil at bay. It's very light and fresh-smelling, which I like. It's also SPF 15, which is really good. I'm also a fan of the cleanser - it only takes a tiny bit and it foams up on your face like a treat, getting rid of impurities and, again, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. I'm not really a fan of wash cleansers as a whole (I prefer a cleansing milk, easier in my opinion) but this would be a great cleanser to use in the shower, or after using a cleansing milk to give your skin a really deep cleanse. As for the eye cream, in all honestly I've not really noticed a difference when using it, but I've tried several eye creams and never really notice much. Maybe it's just me, but all they tend to do is sting for a bit and that's it. This one is no different. 

All in all, I'm impressed with Benefit's skincare offering but I am disappointed with the prices. The moisturiser comes in at a hefty £19.50, the cleanser at £16.50 and the eye cream a whopping £23.50. I know Benefit has never been the cheapest brand in the world but I think these would be better if they stuck nearer the £15 range, as if you were to buy all of the products you need to have a proper skincare routine it would cost you a considerable amount. Will I be purchasing any of the products? Well, I like the cleanser and the moisturiser, but I probably wouldn't unless I was looking for a special purchase. I think of the two I like the moisturiser best, but the price really does put me off. 

Have you tried Benefits B.right skincare range? Do you think it's worth the price tag?


  1. I have the make-up remover as my make-up is so stubborn when it comes to coming off!
    I do think they are pricey - but the quality means that you only need a minimum amount at a time, so i guess that if you use it wisely, you will get alot for your money!
    I'm interested in getting the rest of the products too, just wisely and spread out so I don't go on a massive haul and lose all of my money on it! haha xxx

  2. how gorgeous is the packaging!? So expensive though :( x

  3. I haven't tried these but ohhh they do look so cute! I don't know If i'd go out and buy it without trying it first, because like you said, it is quite pricey! xxx

  4. I love the packaging but I got the minis in the grazia offer too and used them on holiday and had an allergic reaction to them and my face was covered in an itchy red rash!


  5. They sound really good, but there is no way I could spend that much on skin care products, especially with the risk that they might not be right for my skin. Come on Benefit! xxx

  6. shame it's so expensive, cos' these sound pretty helpful. can't believe how lush the packaging is!

  7. The only thing that prevents me to try Benefit products is the price. I don't even want to spend more than a minute at their store/website/stand because I feel sorry for myself later. :( X

  8. I love their Refined Finish Facial Polish and their Total Moisture, but you did not get samples of either of those...

  9. I wanted to try them but I had their last range and hated it, so i'm put off purchasing this range at all.

  10. LOVE the blog! you are so inspirational and interesting! if you get the chance to check out my blog i would love to see what your opinions are on it! :)

  13. i was initially drawn in by the packaging and so bought the 'remove it' and the 're-hydrating mist'. The products are both good, however for the price tag i'd like them to be more than just 'good'. I tend to use clinique products and although they aren't cheap, they last me a lot longer than these benefit ones have. I think when i've completely ran out of the benefit products i'll just pour my clinique liquids into the bottles and have the best of both worlds

  14. Your blog is very cool!

  15. I like Benefit Cosmetics and maybe one day I'll give this skin care line a try. As long as the product works for my skin, I don't really mind how much it is. Good skin is always a good investment.:D
