Benefit's new Puff Off undereye gel! :)

Recently, in general life, I had been looking for the perfect under-eye gel as I suffer quite badly from dark circles and puffiness in the mornings. So when I heard that Benefit were bringing out their own product that claimed to reduce puffy eyes as well as smooth fine lines, I was very excited. This morning I was awoken to the sound of the postman at the door and a mystery pink parcel was placed into my hands. I hadn't ordered anything so I was really intrigued as to what it was, and much to my delight it was a brand new Benefit product to try out! As I had just woken up, it was the perfect time to try out my new Puff Off, so here is how I got on :)

 Benefit 'Puff Off' Eye Gel - £22.50*

As per usual, the Benefit packaging is as cute as pie, meaning that I never want to throw away the outer packaging on any of their products! I've only tried out this product once, and I can already tell that I love it. It's perfect for someone like me who aims to get to bed by 11pm but is still scrolling through blogs and YouTube at gone 2am, as it totally masks your dark circles and reduces the puffiness under your eyes. It's a blending primer (a bit like Porefessional but less thick) which helps reduce the look of puffy eyes. It also contains light-diffusing particles which help smooth away the appearance of fine lines. 


Puff Off is literally perfect for these January blues we all seem to be feeling, when there's no Christmas left to look forward to but it's still freezing cold! I put the product on in the morning, then went to eat my breakfast before getting ready to do my make up, and when I went back to the mirror to check how it was looking I was pleasantly surprised. It hadn't made my dark circles totally disappear, but it had definitely masked them. It had left a lovely matte finish, but is so thin that you can't notice it and no product is left to be seen. It worked as an amazing primer for my foundation and under-eye concealer, and I'm very happy to say that this product works perfectly for me! You do only get 10ml of product in the tube (it's a little bit smaller than the Porefessional), so I'll use it on days when my eyes are looking a little more puffy or tired. It can be used first thing in the morning under your make up to help with morning under-eye situations, but it can also be used throughout the day over your make up to touch up.


My favourite bit about the whole product is the custom tip which is shaped like a miniature iron to literally 'iron out' your fine lines! It is shaped for the perfect gliding performance and is cool on contact which is lovely for puffy morning eyes. I actually found the shape to be perfect as it gets right into the corners of your eyes unlike the usual rollerball eye gels. It really does feel lovely to use as it's so cold and glides on without tugging on the skin at all, and it's quite hydrating as it sinks into the skin so well.






Thanks for reading :)
And thank you so much Benefit for sending me this product!
As an avid Benefit lover for years it's so nice to be working with you! :)
Do you like the sound of this product and would you buy it yourself?

  20. Wow, what a great surprise! I'm always curious, but how do bloggers get the chance to work with Benefit? Oddly enough, I have never tried anything from Benefit (only a bit of my mine's eyebrow power and wax set), but the quality seems to be great for the most part :) Very cute and colorful packing as well.
