Happy Tuesday to you lovely readers! I've been on a Youtube marathon lately watching my fave youtubers but this weekend I have become obsessed and got sucked in watching one after another and then your stuck in a deep hole of videos and I know you have been there too. Mostly it has been beauty youtubers and watching monthly favorites and first impression videos. Then this morning while watching Zoella's new monthly faves got me thinking about skincare. So it made me look in my blog drafts seeing I had a first impression of my fave moisturizer which is the Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream. I haven't done too many skincare posts but I feel since I have been focusing on it even more lately maybe because I just aged up so that was the reason.
That was surely long and rambling and I actually had to edit half of that paragraph. So here is my first impression of this Benefit moisturizer.
I got this in my November BDJ Box (you can read the unboxing here) which was a Benefit Exclusive and had samples of a few Benefit products so some skincare and makeup bits. I was lucky enough to get this sample of the moisturizer and it is just a cute smaller version of the regular product but the same packaging. That's another thing I like about it because it has that glass container and when I buy a full size of this I can refill it which it will be perfect for travel since it is so small. I mean I don't know what packaging I don't like from Benefit as I love all of it and their samples are even cuter since it is just a miniature version.
The consistency is quite nice with this and not greasy or oily which I was afraid of. It is for dry and normal skin which I am not. I'm actually oily combination but sometimes I can be quite dry more than oily which is weird and my skin just has those days. I need the hydration on some days and some days I don't. This does offer moisture which you look for and so far since I've used it it's done just that. I haven't used it consistently or for that long but so far so good. I really need to keep up with it and see the long time effects and I am hoping to see some difference in my skin care routine hopefully. It isn't thick and applies well into my skin without much effort. I've had some moisturizers when they are so thick that I have to sit there and rub it in which I'm not sure is supposed to be that way to be more moisturizing or something but I'm not really into that.
Overall, I really like this and my first impression of the product is that I am really liking this so far and I might do a full review if I see any more difference and any drastic changes if I consistently use it. So far so good which is great and this is only a first impression so my thoughts can change but right now it really is a nice moisturizer for me.
That was my first time doing a first impression and it was just my initial thoughts of the product. This was also my first time using this type of moisturizer.I'm hoping to add more skincare posts and once I get my skincare routine down I'm hoping to do a post about that too. Well that was a fun post to do and do some sort or mini review I suppose. Hope you liked this first impression and let me know if you tried this too and your thoughts or what skincare products I really need to try and look into as I'm all about that lately!
What is your favorite face moisturizer?
