Benefit Radiant Skincare colletion

I was e-mailed a coupon from Sephora VIB to try  a sample pack of Benefit's new skincare line called Radiant. I had no expectations since I hadn't heard anything about it before that but I like free things so hey why not give it a go. I cannot tell you how pleased and happy I am that I picked this up! You all know that I'm a bit of a skincare junkie and it does take a lot to impress me because I do have rather sensitive skin and can break out at the tip of a hat if something irritates my skin.
This sample pack came with three items
 {I don't know if this sample pack is still available or not}.
The packaging is too cute... gotta love when thought and creativity goes into something!

{Also, sorry for the lack of "real" photos... my son lost my photo card for my camera, again! }

1. It's Potent! eye cream- this eye cream is awesome. It is fragrance free and extremely silky to the touch. You can see the brighting effects right away! I really like this eye cream a lot!

2. Foamingly clean facial wash- I can't tell you how much I LOVE this cleanser. I already ordered one the day I put this lovely product on my face! This is a lot like the Missha Super Aqua cleaner I love but this one is a lot more accessible to get and dare I say it does make my face feel softer and smoother. It's seriously like silk! The scent is out of this world delish. It's honestly really nice. I'm a huge fan of foam cleansers so this is perfect for me. Also, it's $21 which I don't think is too bad in price... I thought it was going to be a lot more so I am very surprised! 

3.Triple performing facial emulsion spf 15- another product that really blew me away. This has the same scent as the cleaner and I can't get enough of it. This really does a great job at moisturizing my face and leaving it baby soft. I love that it keeps my face really nice and smooth but it's not a thick and heavy cream! You do get quite a bit with the sample so I have a week or two left until I finish it and this WILL be something I will order as well. The only thing I don't like is the glass bottle. I know they wanted it to be cute but it's a pain to get product out... it's kinda like a glass ketchup bottle... if you know what I mean :::tap tap tap::: But, other then that... it's perfection... for me. Again, this is only $28! Not bad, not bad at all.
PS- this is oil free! :)

So, from what I tried... I am IN LOVE with this new line and I can't wait to try more. I am counting the days until my cleaner comes! 

Have you tried this? What did you think? Were you love like I am??

*I am still using the Glamoxy Snake Serum and incorporated these products with it.

Love this skincare collection! I do freelance makeup for benefit and got to try this before it was put on shelves. It is so gentle and makes your skin feel so fresh and clean!

This is awesome. It must be a little different in Canada, because my coupon was for a Pore Fessional Pirimer and a skin cream, but I loved them too! Very impressed, and I too have sensitive skin. Love getting pleasantly surprised with free things!

Would love to hear an update from you about the Glamoxy Snake Serum, but I understand that for that to happen you'd need a new photo card. Hope you get one soon.
Greetings, Lexie.
