Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion
Advantages: SPF, Feels great on skin, Made a big difference to my skin tone, Light, Smells nice
Disadvantages: None really from me
Benefit for me is one of my favourite brands of cosmetics, they maybe a bit pricey than other brands but they always do a great job! While in need of a new foundation I spotted this, as I spent rather a lot of money at the Benefit counter the representative gave me a few free samples!
Benefit - Triple Performing Facial Emulsion:
'You may not know you're dehydrated, but your skin does. Triple performing facial emulsion SPF 15 PA++ hydrates, protects & comforts the skin with an oil-free, lightweight formula.'
I wasn't really in need of a new moisturiser at the time but as I just purchased a few items hitting over the £100 mark the Benefit rep gave me a large handful of samples! I had three 8.9ml bottles of the moisturiser. I thought to myself oh she gave me a few as it is probably one application per bottle.
How wrong was I? Each little bottle has lasted me around 8 days putting this cream on my face twice a day. Sadly I'm now at the end of my third bottle so I shall be off to purchase the full size version tomorrow as I have fell in love.
Moisturisers for me can be very hit or miss as I have combination skin which can be a right pain when finding items to suit my skin. This product though has to be one of the best moisturisers I have ever tried. It really does suit my skin perfectly and now I have been using this around one month I can see a huge difference in my skin.
Most days I will have make up on so I genuinely think it is important to really look after my skin. You will know this from previous reviews on various skin treatments. (Many more to come too) So far I have noticed the tone in my skin to become even, have a healthier look and feel and best of all my skin feels like it can breathe.
The cream itself is very lightweight and feels just like liquid silk, pale mint green in colour and has a thin consistency compared to other moisturisers. For me, I found that a small amount goes more than a long way, it coats my skin well and evenly. I personally found it to absorb within seconds yet my face still felt well moisturised without any weighed down or greasy feel to my face.
I always cleanse my face first before using this product and it is also recommend that you do so, going on to fresh clean skin helps this product work its magic. Otherwise it would be sat over unclean skin and wouldn't be able to penetrate the skin properly.
When smoothing the cream over my skin I'm uplifted by the gorgeous scented aroma from this product. In my opinion the fragrance has a clean, fresh sent with mild floral hints. It doesn't state what the fragrance of this product should be, however for me it certainly has a clean feel.
It is recommend you apply the cream with your finger tips and rub over face and neck. Soon as I do this my skin feels alive, uplifted, weightless and fresh. I personally haven't come across a moisturiser that has worked so well on my skin before.
As I have combination skin the oily parts have become less oily and the dry parts have become hydrated leavening my skin feeling balanced and while I have been using this product my skin has never looked better in my eyes. As I feel my skin look better it also makes me feel better and more confident with my skin and I love that my breakout are pretty much none existent.
For a Benefit item it isn't as in your face packaging wise as there other products. In fact I think it looks more professional in a high end boutique way. The glass bottle the moisturiser comes in has a sophisticated appeal with detailed indentations along the glass, just small detail which really sets the glass work off.
This product states it is for all types of skin and so far I think that statement is pretty much correct, I'm late twenties, combination skin which can get rather sensitive at times. So this cream has not irritated my skin in anyway nor made it feel over caked in product. My skin just looks and feels better!
Price and Availability:
You can purchase this as part of a travel pack where you get the same size bottle as my samples 8.9ml, these ones however don't come with a pump therefore a little tricky to get the contents when running low. As you have to shake the bottle hard to get the cream out. What I did was leave the bottle upside down.
If you are purchasing the full size product this comes with a handy pump.
Full size of 50ml - £19.50
Travel kit (six piece set) - £10.00
As I'm almost finished with my third sample bottle the purchase size of 50ml I'm guessing will last me around four months. So even though it may appear on the dearer side compared to other moisturisers this will last you a long time so in my eyes evens out the cost.
I just love how my face feels while using the product, overall I have seen a massive improvement. Less breakouts, more of an even tone to my skin and it just feels wonderful. I would certainly recommend giving this a go!
Five out of five stars from me.
Thank you for reading.
