Benefit

benefit-1
benefit-2
benefit-3

I am such a sucker for products that are beautifully packaged. Give me a nice carrier bag and a box and I will be just as happy as with what's inside it! As a child I always used to confuse my parents at Christmas by spending more time playing with the cardboard box than whatever present came in it!

After reading approximately three million reviews I popped by my nearest Benefit concession to pick up The Porefessional and obviously I asked for a bag as well! I think when you are buying something expensive nice packaging is part of what you pay for, so I love picking up little bags like this to store random things in my room.

The product itself I haven't used enough yet to give a proper review, but so far I like it. It comes out a brownish colour but it blends away so it works fine on my pale skin. It definitely makes my foundation look better over it, although I have quite dry skin at the moment so I will wait and try it once I've got my face under control and decide if it is really working!

I ADORE Benefit products, not just because of their beautiful packaging, but that is certainly what attracted me to them in the first place! However, I've tried out PoreFessional at the counter, and I really don't get on with it. I'm also disappointed that 'Champagne', the lightest shade of their new foundation is way too dark for me ;(

I know what you mean, I am such a sucker for pretty packaging, especially if it comes with a pretty bag.

I love nothing more than being able to buy something that comes in a pretty bag/box. I have a stash of all my perfume boxes and keep every single Benefit/MAC box I have ever bought! xxx

I am totally a sucker for pretty packaging too!

Benefit makeup is my favourite. I love the prettiness of the products plus there aren't too many to get overwhelmed by. This primer is amazing stuff, mix it with a face brightening cream and it's even more lush x

I'm also a sucker for fancy packaging, especially when you're spending a fair bit on a product! I have the porefessional and I love it!

i'm so with you on the packaging/design thing, i will buy a certain item from a certain shop if i know i'm getting really good friendly service and neatly packaged too. it's all part of the price for me, i'd rather get the best i can for my hard earned cash.

A&Ws is nice, it's too pricey for me though realistically. nice experience though

I have this and I've never used it properly. I think I will tomorrow now!

The Porefessional is one of my favourite new make-up finds. Really don't know how I lived without it! x

The packaging is pretty sweet I must admit! But I also love Benefit products. Would love to hear what you think after you've used it as I have pale skin too! Thanks for sharing x

Totally get what you mean, I love the bags and packaging sometimes more than the product :) This looks good, would love to read your review on it if you do one Xx

Very cute bag, I have a weakness for cute bags :)

Keep us posted on how it is. I am reluctant to buy benefit after being sucked in by packaging on the concealer as well as a mascara. I was not completley un-pleased but felt like the price was too high and the promises on the beautiful packaging weren't being kept.
