I love a new Benefit release and I get ridiculously excited when I hear about what’s coming soon. I’ve been seeing some hints and sneak peaks since before Christmas so when Puff Off* dropped through my letterbox, I couldn’t have been any more excited to try this new wonder product. There has been so much interest and hype through social media with so many people asking me my thoughts, so I have intensively tested it over the last week and now I am ready to give my thoughts on the new Benefit Puff Off.
First of all, you can’t review any Benefit product without mentioning the packaging. I’m pretty sure the packaging is what drew me to Benefit many years ago when I bought my first ever product, which was the Box O Powder in 10.I loved the kitchness and quirkyness and several years later, the original spark that drew me to Benefit is still there. In a cutesy pastel pink that would fit in perfectly with those 1950s housewife style, it’s all very well thought out and very clever. The sleek tube off Puff Off is just the right size to keep in your handbag, and it’s also noticeable on a dressing table filled with cosmetics.
The most unique part of Benefit Puff Off is the tip which has been designed to look like an iron, to iron away those under eye bags. Now, why someone has never clicked onto this design before I don’t know. So simple, yet it works brilliantly. The pointed tip gets right into the corner of the eye and whilst cooling, the iron glides over the under eye area.
The eye cream itself isn’t as unique as it’s tip, and I have had similar under eye creams that cool, soothe and de puff however it doesn’t take anything away from its loveliness. The pale salmon pink colour of the cream works well in brightening the under eye area, and counteracting dark circles. I don’t think that the puffiness diminishes as well as I expected but it creates an illusion of a smoother, brighter surface. It’s handy for mid day top ups and I have noticed that I don’t look as tired when I have been wearing it.
Last week Benefit Puff Off really got put to the test. I had a quite upsetting day in which I shed a lot of tears and throughout the day the Puff Off held tight. Aside from what I can only describe as bobbling, where the silicon in the cream had got wet, it did remain intact. A top up gave my eyes a great lift and really refreshed the puffiness.
It’s a lovely product and it will come in very handy for me on my long haul flights for a instant uplift. Tired bags be gone! Benefit Puff Off will be available from the end of January at all Benefit Stockists for £22.50 If you didn’t see my post from Wednesday, check out the other new launch from Benefit, Roller Lash
