I have spent the last two days holed up in my bedroom applying for jobs, so you can imagine that I am at an all time low! So imagine my surprise when I got a little parcel through this morning containing some lovely treats for me. I was sooooooooper happy! I recently met Lisa Potter-Dixon at a Benefit event that I attended (blog post here) and was lucky enough to try and get a sample of the new Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation. I have been using it since and I have completely fallen in love with it! The girls from Benefit in Harvey Nichols (Manchester) rang me yesterday and asked for feedback on the foundation and whether I was interested in mail ordering it. Then she went on to say I would get a few little freebies thrown in as well...I was already sold but that was a BIG BONUS! I only ordered this yesterday and it was on my doorstep this morning - SO HAPPY!
I got the foundation in the 'I'm so money - Honey' shade and it matches perfectly! The foundation is in 9 shades so I will be very surprised if there is anyone who can't find a match. It's SPF 25 (perfect for the sun...when we get it), a brightening foundation (I will need this once I start back at school), oil-free, and you can build up coverage! It is a bit on the expensive side at £24.50 but when you think about how much you get and the 'benefits' of it (geddit?) it doesn't really matter! This is definitely going to be in everyday make-up bag! What are your thoughts on it?
The very helpful BeneBabe (I think it was Katrina) also went on to say I would get a free eye shadow with my purchase. It turned out I already had the one that they had in stock so she said I could choose two samples from their skin care range. I already had the Total Moisturising Facial Cream (review here) which she offered so she said I could get the Potent Eye Cream. I got two deluxe samples (my mother already stole one!). The eye cream helps to fade the dark circles under your eyes and helps retain/regain the elasticity. I have been meaning to buy this for a long time so I'm very happy with my deluxe sample which should tide me over for two months! Have you used this product? What did you think of it?
