Xmas Gift Guide : Benefit - Best Of Benefit Gift Set

Benefit. One of my favourite brands to splash out on and indulge in when I can afford too (and you wouldn't think it would be on the lead up to Christmas!)
So when I saw this kit at Boots I had to grab it - some of my all-time favs and a couple of new things to try for a fraction of the normal price? Perfect.
This is the Best Of Benefit gift set and it has been on offer in Boots store and online for just £24.50 when in fact it is worth nearly £50 (A whopping saving of over 50%!)

In this set they have rounded-up all their best sellers from primers to tints to mascaras and popped them all into handy handbag/tester sized beauty's for everyone to try out and enjoy!
 Not only are the products amazing quality with Benefit but the packaging and names are always winners (and these things are a big selling point for me you know!)
I have owned a few of these items both in full-size and in the mini versions and they last for ages. 
This set in my opinion is such a great gift for someone this Christmas ... or even yourself!
Help someone stock up on their current collection/favourite product/s or try out some totally new stuff (or both!). For only £24.50 they could find your new holy grail product!
The 6 best sellers from Benefit :

Mini Porefessional Primer 7.5ml
This is something which I HAVE used before and I have to say that it is the best primer I've ever used. It is one of those things I have been meaning to buy for a long while but never seem to have got round to it! This tube will be saved for nights out and big occasions over the festive period I think - it gives such an amazing base to any make-up and not greasy at all.
They’re Real Mini Mascara 4.0g
Another product I have previously owned/used. I got this in Elle magazine earlier this year - like most of you probably! This is a great mascara especially if you have stumpy eyelashes like myself! 
Mini Hoola Bronzer 3.0g
Majorly excited about finally owning this! A bronzer that everyone has raved bout for years and I STILL haven't bought it... until now! This is a gorgeous matte bronzer - fab for any look... I know this is going to end up in me buying the full sized boxed version.
Mini Benetint Cheek & Lip Tint 4.0ml
The only product I wasn't overly excited about to be honest - and that is only because I not a blush person. This is a lovely rose-tinted lip and cheek stain. After first use though, I am pleasantly surprised by the subtle pretty look it gives, lovely jubley.
Mini boi-ing Concealers 01 & 02 2x 1.5g
This concealer is amazing, great for under eye bags (which I seem to be prone to at the moment!) I'm just still deceding which shade is better for me at the moment though!
Mini Highbeam Highlighter 4.0ml
Probably the first product I ever bought from Benefit, one of those products you will always love no matter what! A gorgeous highlighter, perfect for cheek and brow bones.

A VIP pass to your nearest Benefit Beauty Bar in Boots for a free makeupper
...shame there isn't one near me...yet!

Have any of you taking advantage of this bargain offer aswell? Did you buy it as gift or for yourself like me?

  1. High Beam was also my first product from Benefit! I'm on my second bottle now and I still love it! :)


    1. Same, I bought the 17 3way highlighter as a dupe though - it's a bargain! x

  2. Oh this set is great! I'm yet to try the boing concealer but I really wana try it!

    1. It's good but I think I still prefer my 17 phwoar paint concealer! x

  3. Wow this set looks awesome, I think I might have to get it :)

  4. Amazing! I've had my eye on this set for a while! Looks great and well worth the money xx

    1. Definitely worth the money - such a bargain! x

  5. I very nearly bought this for myself! It is a bargain, but with gift sets like this, I always expect to see one full sized product! I would have bought all these sample sized goodies at the half price, but I couldn't have paid full price for ALL samples. God I'm so tight, haha.

    I love Porefessional and I'm almost out of my tube, and have never tried They're Real! They'd have been my half price swingers!

    1. I know what you mean - I had to grab it thought... couldn't say no haha! x

  6. Oooh I've been resisting grabbing this for myself before Chrimbo...but I can't stand to buy it for someone else either! Feel like I'm in a lose/lose situation.
    Will probably sneak it under the tree from Santa :o)

    1. good idea! there's nothing wrong with treating yourself! x

  7. I wanted this set soooo bad! Damn being broke! xx

  8. Thank you so much for the heads up on this! I've been struggling to think of what to get one of my friends for Christmas but this is perfect. I'm actually really tempted to get this for myself as well haha!


  9. I am a total Benebabe, and I like a lot of these products as well! The POREfessional is amazing and so is the Hoola Bronzer and They're Real mascara!
