Benefit my skin!

I have been meaning to blog about my favourite skin care product EVER for a long time but never had the time. However, I am currently sitting in a pile of papers with deadlines looming so naturally I am going to procrastinate and BLOG!

Anyway! I am currently IN LOVE with the Benefit 'Total Moisturiser Facial Cream'. At £26.50 it is a tad bit pricey but trust me it is worth every penny. It has a very thick creamy feel to it but it is a very light formula which leaves your skin feeling very hydrated. Despite its thick formula it absorbs into my skin very easily and has a gorgeous fragrance to it. I have had my tub for over 2 months now and I'm not even a quarter of a way through it because a little really does go a long way. 

I tend to get very dry skin around my nose area but since I have started using this it seems to have calmed down (yay). I wear as part of my morning routine but it is also perfect for a night cream because you wake up in the morning with your skin feeling oh-so-fresh and not have the greasy residue I find that you get with some other brands. 

Erm, did I mention how much I love this product? 

The Bene-babes at the Benefit counters are amazing! Before I purchased this facial cream  I visited the counter a numerous time to make sure it was the right cream for me (£26.50 is a LOT to spend on face cream). The girls were fab and always gave me a lot of advice and samples of the Total Moisturiser to take away and try at home. So if you do want to try this I suggest you visit your local Benefit counter and get a sample before you buy this product (because trust me you will!).

I recycled one of the sample tubs they gave me, filled it with the Total Moisturiser and stuck it in my bag. It's a great product for using on the go for when you have those dry skin emergencies.

As you can see it is a tiny sample tub so it doesn't take up a lot of space in your bag.

Have you tried this product?
What product are you obsessed with right now?


  1. Great review! This sounds fab. My fav product of the moment is also Benefit - the POREfessional - don't know how I lived without it. Thanks for entering my giveaway x

    1. I'm buying that this weekend! I got a sample and LOVED IT. Do you find that it lasts throughout the day?


  2. I absolutely love this moisturiser! I got it in the intro set which you can pick up from the benefit counter for £10 it contains all the little b.right essentials!! Reviewed it somewhere on my blog haha.


    1. Yes! I have read that review. I might get that once I finish my clinique 3 step to try it out. What did you think of the eye cream? I've heard mixed reviews but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

  3. I have to try it!!!



  4. I really want to try some of the Benefit stuff, I got to Bad Gal lash mascara for christmas ages ago and absolutely loved it. It just seems so expensive on a limited budget!

    1. I'm the same but I always make sure I save up before a massive splurge. If you go to the counters you should be able to get samples for it to help you decide whether it is worth it :)


Leave your floaty thoughts here as you drift through...
