Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream review
I’m totally in love with the brand benefit even though I have only tried a couple of makeup products. The packaging is super cute and the products also work well. I was excited to see a slight discount at Myer during Boxing Day sales. I picked up a couple of makeup products but saw that they had a few skincare stuff in full size as well as travel size. The skincare is part of their new B.Right radiant skincare range. The bottles and jars looked absolutely cute and since I was really hoping to update/ change my skincare regime I wanted to give these a try.
Product Description and Claims:
Say good-bye to dry skin and hello to “total moisture.” This facial cream provides concentrated immediate & long-term hydration for a radiantly refreshed complexion. Our exclusive tri-radiance complex helps develop the skin’s reserves of water & reinforce skin’s moisture barrier. Contains mango butter, a natural plant-based emollient known to provide moisture. For normal to dry skin.
In consumer testing, 100% of people tested felt that their skin was immediately and intensely quenched.

My Experience with Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream:
I have combination skin but this cream is for normal to dry skin. This is because my skin has become very dry and dehydrated recently. Might be the weather or all the junk food I have been having recently. The full sizes as well as the travel size come in cute, frosted jar and bottle. The glass jar has a slight aqua tint to it and has a beige plastic cap. The packaging looks expensive because the outside of the jars are textured and look very high end.
The product is of a thick cream consistency and white in colour. Not only is this but the whole skincare range heavily fragranced, they smell like flowers. This moisturizer spreads smoothly and evenly over the skin, I prefer to apply a thin layer because this is a cream and not a lotion. Total Moisture is best for use at night because it makes my face look oily and takes quite a bit of time to absorb into skin. After some trial and error I have come to a conclusion that it’s better for me to apply this cream on the dry parts only. When I used this on my whole face, it made my nose area and T zone oily and clogged. When I used only on my dry areas it made my skin moisturised as well as supple and smooth.
Because of my skin type I couldn’t reap 100 % benefit from this product. However for people with dry skin this cream might suit perfectly well.Eventhough this comes in a travel size jar since I used it only on the dry areas it will last me quite awhile. One thing is certain, I’ll definitely save the jar and reuse it for travel as it is too cute to throw away.
Pros of Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream:
• The packaging is absolutely cool and drool worthy
• Makes dry skin hydrated ,soft and supple
• Smells flowery- however I personally do not like fragranced skincare.
• The moisturisation provided lasts quite awhile.
Cons of Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream:
• Might suit dry skin well but for combination skin, this cream should only be used on the dry areas
• Fragrance might irritate sensitive skin
• Takes quite awhile to absorb into skin
• The full size products as well as the sample size are pricy.
I would not buy the full size as I’m only using it on dry areas, however it will definitely suit dry skinned ladies.
