I just got home from a trip to the "happiest place on earth," and I knew my skin was going to need a little extra love while exhausting myself on rollercoasters all weekend! I purchased this, knowing that Birchbox generally ships quickly, and having been consistently recommended to try Benefit by a friend who freelanced for them for many years. I was planning on purchasing the full size emulsion anyway, but wanted to try it out first.
The emulsion is so silky! I don't know how best to describe HOW creamy-smooth it is, because generally, lotions are kind of silky, but this is a whole new level! I was thoroughly impressed by the cashmere texture of the emulsion, and it left my skin dewy all day long.
The face cream is CREAMY! Like, really, really creamy, and super moisturizing. I put this on after washing my face once our flight landed, and I know it saved my skin. (I always feel gross and dehydrated after flying) The next morning, I looked fresh and clean- I felt like the texture of my skin was nicer and clearer. I have problematic skin and found that although this product moisturized incredibly well, it didn't make me oily or cause any blemishes, unlike most things.
I haven't tried to scrub yet, but plan to the next time I need a really refreshing wash.
Highly recommended, especially for travel!
