Hydration, Hydration, Hydration!

If any of you follow me on Instagram you'll already know that I am, for sure, obsessed with the product I am going to be talking about this morning- Benefit's Total Moisture Facial Cream!

I first used this product 3 years ago when it was given to me for christmas and since then its been my go-to skin food!

As usual with Benefit the packaging is so on point... whenever I have to replenish my supply it always feels like a bit of a treat!

I began by mainly using this as a night cream- once i'd used my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish to get rid of my falling mascara and sleepy eyeliner I'd then slather myself in the stuff.

Over time I really found that it was helping to combat my troublesome dry patches (mainly between my brows and around my nose!) so I now use it in the morning before putting on my foundation. 

OHH and the smell.. imagine just something really clean and creamy.. if i could bathe in a tub of this I could.. even the Mr comments on how great it smells!

Although it doesn't have SPF properties to it thats fine as my foundation does i'm  all protected. (NOTE- I managed to burn my poor little face in Wales of all places over the bank holiday as I forgot to put on my foundation that morning after popping some of this on..owww!)

Look at that texture! Its SO thick that all I do is dip my finger in gently and dap my forehead, cheeks and chin and thats enough to go round- another plus is that there is no sign of greasiness after applying it whatsoever. 

I completely agree with Benefit's selling points on this one- it provides immediate and long term hydration for a refreshed complexion. Even after a long day in an air conditioned office my skin still feels hydrated and soft.

 I've visited the Benefit counter quite a bit recently and they are so great when it comes to samples- go ask for a sample of this and I bet you'll love it too!

The Total Moisture is £29.50 but so worth the money- a pot of this usually lasts me about 6 months.. thats how little you need to use!

Have you tried anything in the Benefit skincare range that you think I should add to my skincare routine?

  1. I've heard a lot of amazing things about Benefit's skin care but haven't tried it out yet... Maybe I need to reconsider that and get some samples to try!

    I nominated you for the Liebster Award over on ^^ Check it out when you get a chance (I know you're probably insaane busy this week!) but it'd be cool to see your take on the tag :) xxx
