Benefit Christmas Collection 2017

I love the pre-Christmas period when brands start launching their festive sets, full of cult favourites at gasp-worthy prices. I usually find myself looking out for presents for other people then thinking, "You know who'd like that? Me."

If there is one company that knows how to make a great set, it's Benefit. The number one premium beauty brand in the UK always packs its sets full of bestsellers and handy tips & tricks on how to get the most from its products.

This year is no different, and I've a couple of amazing gift sets to show you. I would, however, like to address a slight issue that has come to light over the last few days concerning the ever popular Gimme Brow. You may have become aware that all sets containing Gimme Brow, and the product itself have been voluntarily recalled by the company, over concerns the ingredients may cause irritation to the eyes. You are probably saying to yourself, it's a brow product not a lash product, and you would be correct, however, Benefit are taking no chances and have offered all customers a full refund if they feel uneasy with the idea of using Gimme Brow.

That being said, if used for its intended purpose there are no issues with Gimme Brow, and I really hope it doesn't put people off buying it in the future when it eventually returns to our shelves. It is rather unfortunate for Benefit lovers as the majority of the Christmas collection, along with various other sets had to be sent back to the company, including the amazing Brownanza that housed five full size brow products.

However, I have two beautiful sets to show you to cheer you all back up again. First up is the 'B.Right! By The Bay' globe shaped tin. The skincare tins are always amazing value and this year is no different. The set contains a full size Total Moisture cream (£33), a full size Browvo Conditioning Primer (£23.50), a mini It's Potent Eye Cream, and mini Instant Comeback Serum. The price? An amazing £39.50. So basically you are getting the lovely Total Moisture and paying £6.50 more for three extras. Fab isn't it?

I know a lot of people underestimate Benefit's skincare, but it really does pack a punch. It's a company owned by Louis Vuitton, so you know it's going to be of luxurious quality.

This next set is one of my favourites and you'll soon see why. 'City Lights Party Nights' is a generously sized make up bag containing a full size Precisely My Brow (Shade 3), a mini Dandelion Twinkle highlighter, and a mini They're Real Mascara and lipstick (Nude Scandal). This is priced at £24.50, a complete bargain considering Precisely, My Brow is priced at £20 alone.

I know that the Gimme Brow fiasco is a major disappointment for some, and the fact most of the Christmas offerings and the advent calendar are no longer available is a bit rubbish, but there are still some great sets available. It also means that the Benefit products you have on your Christmas list will probably have to be bought as full size, so it's not all bad!
