B is for Brilliant

It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten SUPER excited about a new skincare line. But then, I walked into Shopper’s Drug Mart the other day (if you’re not from Canada, it’s a drugstore chain with fancy pants beauty boutiques built in), and I felt my heart fluttering. I was excited. The new b.right! radiance skincare line by Benefit was literally calling out to me from across the store. Yes, I go a little ga-ga for gorgeous packaging, but I couldn’t help myself. Fresh aquatic colours are splashed onto luxe cartons. Each box opens like a gift, as opposed to your standard folding carton. Lovely apocathary styled bottles are capped gingerly with cork-type lids. Vanity-worthy? Absolutely.

Then I wondered, could there be more than meets the eye? Could the formulas feel as lush as the packaging looks? And the answer? Yes! The creams are fluffy and hydrating. The ultra radiance facial re-hydrating mist is unbelievably refreshing. The triple performing facial emulsion SPF 15 PA++ is not only oil-free, but it has been measured specifically for UVA protection.

Shall I give you yet another reason to love this line? They came out with a 6 piece intro kit. Great intro price point (~$24) to allow you to try the best products in the line. But hurry, they say it’s limited edition. I think I need to pick one up before my travels this summer… (hint, I am going to 2 of the places I have mentioned in previous blog posts – proof that vision boards do work:) ).

The kit includes:
foamingly clean facial wash 8.9 g Net wt. 0.3 oz.
refined finish facial polish 8.9 g Net wt. 0.3 oz.
moisture prep toning lotion
triple performing facial emulsion SPF 15 PA++ 8.9 mL / 0.3 US fl. oz.
total moisture facial cream 3.0 g Net wt. 0.1 oz.
it’s potent! eye cream 3.0 g Net wt. 0.1 oz.

Love, LOVE deluxe minis!!!

    I actually bought the moisturizer when I was in visiting Montreal a couple weeks back – I had forgotten to pack ANY moisturizer (I know, shameful) for this 1 week trip and had to use hotel body lotion on my face (yugghh) for a couple days before I had time to run out to a Shoppers to get something better… LOVE the smell, love the texture, it’s a little bit heavy for the spring/summer right now I find, but I’ll definitely be dipping back into the pot when fall comes around :)
