Benefit a Student

On Thursday, 15th March, me and the girls had planned to go to the weekly pub quiz, at our local watering hole. We then found out that there was a beauty event happening at the Debenhams, next door, so we decided to check out what was going on - with the promise of free things!

There was masterclasses going on, raffles being held and staff on hand to assist any of your purchasing needs.

Here's my friend Izzi receiving a make up lesson from one of the lovely girls at Benefit, who i didn't catch the name of!

We found that if you paid £3, you received a goody bag, including: a bag, from one of many bags, and a little container with three sample perfumes, as well as gaining a strip of tickets to enter into the raffle. The prizes ranged from make-up to bottles of perfume, and beyond. We'd all been eyeing up a collection of Benefit skin care, and i was lucky enough to bag myself the lot! I am now the proud owner of over £150 worth of Benefit skin care, that i'm excited to try out. I've really been getting interested in looking after my skin lately, as i've been prone to break outs, as well as experimenting with my make up routine so this is the perfect place to start, giving me some products to test.

Here's what my box contained:

Benefit Hoola Bronzer: RRP £23.50

Benefit Remove It Make Up Remover: RRP £16.50

Benefit Refined Finish Facial Polish: RRP £17.50

Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream: RRP £23.50

Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15: RRP £19.50

Benefit The POREfessional: RRP £23.50

Benefit Magic Ink Eyeliner: RRP £14.50

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Foundation Samples in Champagne & Honey

I'm yet to try everything out, but i'll be doing reviews as soon as i do - with the Remove It Make Up Remover coming to a computer screen near you, very soon.

I was over the moon to receive these products, as i'm always looking for new ways to look after my skin!

There are also the three perfume samples i gained from my goody bag, and i quite like all three:

The CK Shock is my favourite, as i'm quite a fan of the Calvin Klein scents - CK In 2 You being one of my favourite perfumes. They'll be perfect for travelling, so i was happy to receive these!

Overall, we had a lovely evening being plied with wine and cupcakes with the pub quiz to follow.
