Review: Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream (Radiant Skin range)

It’s Potent Eye Cream has received mixed reviews so I thought I’d give it a go as this sample had come free with another purchase at Boots earlier in the summer months…photo 1 (1)

The packaging is cute with attention to detail as you’d expect with benefit, the box has both matt and gloss textures and the glass jar has beautiful detail. Mine is a sample size so has a plastic lid however, the full size jar has a cork lid.

On to the product…I tried it out a few times at the start of the summer months and then again this week now the weather is cooler.

The consistency is that of a cream but pleasingly feels more like a serum on the skin. It’s light non-greasy and soaks straight in and feels quite cooling which is great to wake up morning puffy looking eyes. This product is hydrating and very light so perfect for the summer months. If I’m honest I did not notice any change to dark circles which was rather disappointing considering the tag line claims “brightening eye cream to fade dark circles”

All in all this is a nice refreshing eye cream suitable (in my opinion) to skin in it’s early twenties that doesn’t have any fine lines or crepiness yet.

Have you used any of benefit’s Radiant Skincare? did the brightening effect work for you? I would love to hear your feeedback about new products.

A luxurious face mask that is devoted to purity and is very relaxing and indulgent.

This mask is ideal for oily skin, it purifies leaving your skin smooth with a satisfying matt completion. Apply a think layer to your skin avoiding the eye area.

20140302-170200.jpgThe consistency is thick, the smell is very refreshing. It feels tingly when first applied. Lay back in comfy clothes (I’m in my pj’s) relax and take deep breathes, allow your shoulders to hang low and close your eyes. The mask turns from a thick creamy consistency to clay and sets, it doesn’t feel dry but has that funny limited movement feeling which I quite like as it means I can’t speak! Yes me not speaking for a whole 10mins! Bliss.
20140302-170655.jpgIt turns to a chalky white Colour. Now it’s time to remove the mask. Wet your fingers and massage gently. Wash off with warm water, I like to use a soft face cloth. Rinse well and do not rub your skin. Pat your skin dry and ta-dah!! Refreshed radiant skin that is rid of oily areas and feels soft and smooth.

20140302-171845.jpgThe price tag £39 for this mask in my opinion is spot on for its results. It can be used weekly, I like to use it as a once a month beauty indulgent treat rather than a weekly essential.
