It’s quite obvious to say that the first step to radiance is a good skincare: deep cleansing, better if with balm and fennel, exfoliating, moisturizing with a serum enriched with natural oils…but talking about make up, there are many products nowadays, which are targeted at primarily boosting radiance. And Benefit That Gal is one that really accomplishes the target on me. If you know me a little, you’ll be aware of the fact that I’m quite skeptical towards primers and if I can skip them in my routine, I feel even better. Having a very sensitive and blemish prone skin, I prefer just one layer of make up. But what happens when I have a party or a dinner after work and there’s no time to re-do my make up? Or whenever I’m having an important meeting and I want to look happy, healthy and beautiful?
Well in all these cases, a radiance-boosting primer could be a solution!
Benefit That Gal is different from all the other primers I’ve ever seen: it’s not in a tube you squeeze, but in a tube you twist at the base, to see the product come out on the top.
It’s a pink cream containing pigments and natural extracts of raspberry and chamomile to soothe and brighten the skin. If you’re wondering ‘does it leave a pink trace or a pink coloring?’ the answer is ‘yes, it does’, but a very very soft one.
You can re-apply it during the day, wear it even alone, for a no-make up day, or of course, go on with foundation and powder.
The application is very simple: use the fingertips onto the face and blend until it’s perfectly absorbed. It’s a speedy application really: it takes just a few seconds, because the consistency of Benefit That Gal is quite liquid, watery and silky. It sinks wonderfully. And what’s more it doesn’t leave any residues, has no visible sparkles and creates an extremely natural glow. Here’s a further swatch for you.
As I said, although being skeptical towards primers, I’ve been surprised by the results of Benefit That Gal, especially because it was not me so say ‘I look radiant today’, but I’ve been said to be more than I usually do. 😉
It’s not by chance, that the product claim is ‘Go from dull to darling’.
