Benefit Cosmetics fans would have noticed this new display at the Benefit Cosmetics’ counter. You would also have read all the rumblings internationally about the launch of the new Benefit b.right Radiant skincare which is Benefit’s first skincare line. Its been available here for about a month so far.
Do you want a dimmer switch on radiant skin? I wouldn’t! Let it shine baybeh! 😀
Anyway, I was offered some little samples of 3 products to try which I did over the course of a week or so and I will quickly have my thoughts on them below. Before that however, I must confess to really liking the faux cork look of the caps used in the packaging. It looks so olde worlde and harkens back to a time when cosmetics probably did come in bottles and tubs stoppered with cork.
I will however, have to note that the packaging of some of the products, although very lovely and whimsical, just like the makeup, tends to be a little impractical. The primary impracticality is with the lotions which come in lovely bottles. The problem however is that the lotions are a not liquid like the cleanser so it is quite a pain to get it out of the bottle in a proper amount for use each time. The sample bottles were mini versions of the full sizes so perhaps the small opening might have something to do with it. But I always prefer a squeeze tube or pump dispenser for lotions. It allows you dispense the right amount and there is less wastage. [Update: Apparently full size bottles come with a pump hence this rant maybe for naught]
Now we’ve gotten that out of the way, let me tell you quickly what I think about the Foamingly Clean Facial Wash, Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF15 and Its Potent! Eye Cream.
