Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream

Hiya lovelies! I'm bringing you a skincare product review today. I hope you find it useful!

48.2g/1.7oz for £27.50

I first tried this product after receiving a sample of it in a past Benefit order. It seemed to be great timing as I was looking for a new moisturiser to combat my dry patches on my face, and my Body Shop Vitamin E moisturiser just wasn't cutting it anymore. This Benefit moisturiser has a lovely fragrance and makes your skin feel soft and moisturised after use. The consistency is thick and creamy and doesn't leave a greasy layer after application. I noticed the next day after using the sample that I had some spots on my face. I thought nothing of it as sometimes I do get spots, and I always get them in the same place. I've used plenty of moisturisers and none have ever had an adverse effect on my skin. I shrugged it off took a very expensive plunge, costing me a whopping £27.50.

The full-size of this cream has beautiful glass packaging and is very heavy, with a cork-effect lid. I continued use over 3 days, morning and night. I think you can guess what happened during the 3 days. More break outs. Great! I've spent all this money on a skincare product and it breaks me out. Sure, it might feel my skin feel nice for a while but the aftereffects for me just are not worth it. As soon as I stopped using it, the spots cleared away themselves. It's sad to give a negative review on a product from a brand that you really do like, but this stuff just did not work for me. You may find that this product works wonders for you and that's fantastic! Unfortunately, I wasted my money here. I don't know exactly what broke me out, but I can only guess and say it was the fragrance.

    1. I know. :/ I've now opted for a Neutrogena moisturiser for a fraction of the price and it's working great!
