Here at the Fashion Pulse Daily headquarters, I’ve discovered the Radiant Skincare line from Benefit cosmetics and I’m absolutely hooked. The Be There Be Bright kit sold at Macy’s and Macys.com for $45 comes with the Triple Performing Facial Emulsion Cream, Total Moisture Facial Cream, It’s Potent! Eye Cream, and to sweeten the deal it comes with a bonus POREfessional Primer that lightens the appearance of pores.
So what’s all the rave about? Personally, I’ve noticed a big difference in my skin’s overall illumination. The true test to see if a skincare line is working for you is when you notice a difference when wearing little to no makeup. But aside from a fabulous complexion, what’s also great about this product line is how easy it is to incorporate into your own beauty routine!
At night after washing your face:
1. Begin with It’s Potent! Eye Cream and lightly dab onto your under eyes (if your like me and dark under eyes seem to haunt you on the regular–never fear, just add a pinch extra. Don’t worry it’ll be our little secret!)
2. You may notice your overall skin is still dry from washing, so it’s best to use the Total Moisture Facial Cream overnight, because it’s a bit thicker than the Triple Performing Cream.
Before applying makeup:
1. Apply another dab of It’s Potent! Eye Cream (yup, it’s all about consistency- but don’t overdo it as this area is delicate and sensitive to moisture).
2. Now is when it is best to use the Triple Performing Facial Emulsion Cream cream because it’s an ultra lightweight cream that will not clog pores under your makeup.
As for the POREfessional Primer, I only use that when I am going out and I want to give my face a flawless and lasting appearance. For this, simply apply the cream to your T-Zone or to any specific problem areas.
Give it a try and hopefully your skin will be glowing from within as well! You may also want to check out the Olay Total Effects 7 in One Tone Correcting Moisturizer, which FPD wrote about a few months ago (and loved).
