The benefit range of beauty products are often a favourite of mine so when I bought a day cream from them I asked if they had a night cream too. The girl at the benefit counter said that they didn't do a specific night cream but that she uses and recommended the benefit moisturiser.
The cream comes in a glass pot with a screw lid in pale brown the whole design is simple, nice and reminds me a little of Art Deco style. It is the box and packaging that holds most of the product information
The box itself is lovely with a cute little string wrap around button to keep it shut and it's those little touches that puts benefit in a higher league than some other cosmetics for me.
The cream is pure white and of a thick creamy texture that is lovely to dap onto your skin and smooth's in quickly without any issues.
Being an intensely high moisturiser this is better as the girl suggested as a night cream or perhaps if you have dry skin. I tend to get dry skin sometimes after working a lot or walking the dogs in the winter cold and wind. I use this cream as a day cream in these times but alternate it with my normal day cream and find this works well to combat the ill effects of winter on my skin. The cream feels cool on application and a little really does go a long way, if you do use to much you end up with a greasy edge to your skin fine for night time but not day.
Make up glides onto this base very easily, whether that is foundation or a primer base.
On of it's aim is to provide immediate relief from dry skin and yes my skin does feel quenched on administering the cream. Another aim is to provide long lasting protection against dry skin and to be fair I think it does that too, but as previously said if you use it all the time it may feel too much.
It may seem a bit of a steep price at £27.50 For just over 48 grams but as you only use the cream sparingly because it is so moisturising it last much longer than some other creams on the market.
An advantage of this product for some maybe that it comes as part of a range with another moisturise lotion, a skin prep and an eye cream which all come in similar packaging which looks great on the dressing table. Again on this note they do a mini set, which is an ideal gift or test package to see if you like them.
Down sides for me is that it contains no sun factor, this is ok when I use it as a night cream but in the day I really need sun factor as I have pale skin. It also appears to contain has no anti aging properties. For me personally this is an issue, I need anti aging components in my creams now as I get older and although I may be prepared to accept this without as a night cream there are many other product which cater for my needs better. I suspect benefit are aiming there brand at a younger age bracket than myself and so do not necessarily see it as a primary issue.
Would I recommend? Yes but for a younger age range of teens to mid twenties and with dry or combination skin.
