Benefit b.right! Radiant Skincare 6 Piece Intro Kit Review & Giveaway

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

Somebody please pick my jaw, lips and teeth off the floor! I was SO IMPRESSED with Benefit's Sample Skincare Collection, that I just purchased full-size bottles of everything (except one item). I've seen Benefit's skincare products, but I never purchased them because I have this love/hate with their makeup! Either I love it or I don't! So I was NOT going to take a risk with their skincare line (plus it's pricey). Well Benefit came out with a Limited Edition INTRO skincare kit so you could try their products. I purchased it and took it with me to Beau Rivage. It blew me away. Here's my review! Below is my rating scale!
Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet
supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)


All SIX skincare products come in a THICK, clear plastic zippered pouch. 
Nothing fancy, but very nice and thoughtful for a sample kit.

A pamphlet tells you about each product and also gives you directions for use.

For SAMPLE packaging, aren't these BEAUTIFUL!?! You should see the FULL SIZE! 
I'll post on Instagram, when I receive them.

1. Refined Finish Facial Polish - So gentle! It has little beads, but they are not harsh. Your skin will feel so good after using this. I promise you, your face will feel soft and glowing. I love it! I also love the scent! And I hate scented products. All of these smell so fresh, dreamy and heavenly! I suggest using this 1-2 times a week (more if you don't have sensitive skin).

2. Foamingly Clean Facial Wash - Excellent cleanser! My skin felt very clean and moisturized! Some cleansers dry you out and you're running to the moisturizer. Not this! Your skin feels moisturized, but in a good way (not heavy, greasy etc). It removed makeup well.


3. Moisture Prep Toning Lotion - At first, I was like YEAH...RIGHT!?! I don't NEED this! But guess what? It really complimented my skin, when I applied the moisturizer afterwards. My skin felt more toned and firm. Usually when I hear lotion for the face, I run away. It usually means HEAVY, but this wasn't.

4. Triple Performing Facial Emulsion - Didn't care for this. I found it to be heavy and a little on the sticky side. I say skip it and just use whatever Sunscreen you already use on your face.


5. Total Moisture Facial Cream - I love this moisturizer. It's not too light. It's not too heavy. It's a medium weight, that's great for day (apply lightly) and night (apply generously). Not greasy. Not sticky. It absorbs into the skin well and leaves a nice glow. I have SUPER DRY skin, so it drank it up! Sluuurp!

6. It's Potent! Eye Cream -  Use an eye cream! No matter how old you are! You will be thankful as you get older. I don't suffer from really dark circles, but sometimes I can get dark/tired under the eyes. I'm also now developing those little fine lines. I really saw a difference after using this and I haven't been using it for long. It's definitely a winner in my book.


So those are my thoughts! This intro skincare kit is LIMITED EDITION, so I don't know how long it will be around. But I don't think you can go wrong with this. Buy the sampler, test it out (BEFORE committing to the FULL SIZE bottles and come back here to tell me how you liked it or what worked / didn't work for you. My giveaway is below! I know, it wasn't going to be a giveaway, but I'm really impressed. It's open worldwide! A Very Sweet Blog is NOT responsible for any adverse skin, health or mental reactions ;). Good luck!

Such a cute little set! What a great idea, I think more brands should have something like this. Especially if it got you liking the products so much! :)

The eye cream sounds wonderful - I'm always needing eye cream now it really makes a difference if I'm too tired to put it on in the evenings...haha.

I'm so glad you posted about this Kim because I was getting my brows done last week in SF at Benefit and my skin was really dry. As nicely as possible, the woman doing my brows said, maybe you should try some of our moisturizer for your eyes and then she totally sold me on this sample skin care kit. I was skeptical too because I've never used their face products but I used it all last week and loved it. Perfect for travel too and I agree to skip the Emulsion, it was too heavy, but the eye cream, facial cleanser and facial creme were amazing and helped my dry skin instantly. Great giveaway!! Thanks for such a thorough review too!

Wow - this is a glowing review, Kim! No pun intended ;) I used to use a moisturiser from Benefit but it wasn't so fabulous that I bothered to buy it again. It just might be time to give their skincare another try!
