Beauty Review: Benefit B.Right Radiant Skincare 6 Piece Intro Kit

L-R: Foamingly Clean Facial Wash, Refined Finish Facial Polish, Moisture Prep Toning Lotion, Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, Total Moisture Face Cream and It's Potent! Eye Cream

 Morning lovelies! Today I've got another empties (well sort of) post for you, and this time it's about skincare - specifically, Benefit's b.right range of brightening skincare products. I was given the six piece starter kit as a birthday present last year by my sister, originally to take travelling with me but it was so nice I couldn't bring myself to do it! But then, the other week I was going to visit my parents for the weekend and thought it would be a good way to save space in my bag, so I took it along with me and have been using it ever since - and I have to say I'm very impressed!

The set consists of six miniature versions of the products in the line which come in a see-through plastic zip-up bag - I like this as it means you're not rummaging for tiny bottles and could also be used as a travel make-up bag in the future. As you'd expect from Benefit the packaging is gorgeous too, all glass bottles and jars with stitching details that make me think of an alchemist's shop, and a lovely fresh blue-green colour scheme. All the products have a fantastic clean, slightly floral smell which I really like as well.

Foamingly Clean Facial Wash
First up is the Foamingly Clean Facial Wash, a lovely rich cleanser that lathers up really nicely on your face - you can really feel it lifting the dirt off when you use it. The instructions say to wet your face, apply the cleanser and rinse off, but I tend to apply mine when my face is dry and then remove it with a hot flannel. The travel size shown here lasted me about two weeks using it most mornings and every night.
Refined Finish Facial Polish

The second cleanser in the kit is the Refined Finish Facial Polish, which as the name suggests is a face scrub. I liked this one as it was gentle but still felt like a proper scrub that was taking off all the dead skin without being too harsh, which is good as I find a lot of face scrubs too scratchy. I've been using this twice a week for the last three weeks and it's still going pretty well, I think I'll get another week or perhaps two out of it.

Moisture Prep Toning Lotion
After you cleanse, the next product in the routine is the Moisture Prep Toning Lotion. I don't normally use a toner - I prefer to use serum instead - but this was actually really nice in helping my skin feel fresh and ready for moisturiser, as well as giving it lots of hydration. The bottle here lasted me about three weeks using it morning and night.

Triple Performing Facial Emulsion
The kit also contains two moisturisers, one for day and one for night. The day moisturiser is Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15. I always get a bit worried about new moisturisers because I have quite an oily forehead and tend to break out quite easily, but I needn't have been concerned with this one. The product was really nice and light, not greasy and sank in easily, and even on days when I didn't have make-up over it I still felt like my skin was protected from the colder weather. The bottle has lasted me three weeks so far using it every day and I reckon I'll get a couple more out of it yet.

Total Moisture Facial Cream
Then there's the night cream, Total Moisture Facial Cream. It's quite a bit thicker than the day cream but again a little goes a long way, and it felt lovely and rich but without being too heavy and causing any breakouts. This pot has lasted me three weeks so far using it every night, and I think it should last for another few weeks, which I think is pretty bargainous!

It's Potent! Eye Cream
Finally, we have It's Potent! Eye Cream, and it definitely lives up to its name! I've suffered with dark circles under my eyes for as long as I can remember, and this is the first eye cream I've found that zaps them almost instantly. It's a lovely hydrating cream, not too thick or heavy for the eye area, and it feels really cooling when you apply it too. This teeny tiny pot has lasted three weeks using it twice a day and is still going strong.

Overall this kit is a fantastic little introduction to the range and has some lovely products in there. It lasts quite a long time as well so would be good for a short holiday somewhere as well as for a weekend away. The only thing now is I want to buy all of the full size products! However I think my favourite product in the kit is by far and away the eye cream so I will definitely be investing in that when it runs out - even though it's such a small pot it lasts a good long while.

If you'd like to try this product then the starter kit is available for £12.50 - which in my view is ridiculously cheap for a high-end brand like Benefit - from, John Lewis and ASOS. Or you can buy any of the individual products from the Benefit website or usual Benefit stockists.

Have you tried any of the b.right products or other Benefit skincare? What did you think of them? And what do you do with your products when you go away - do you decant them, buy minis, take the full sizes or something else? Let me know in the comments and have a great day!
