Benefit Ooh La Lift and Puff Off!

Benefit Ooh La Lift and Puff Off!

Who knew two little bottles would be the holey grail for eyes?!

I came across the Ooh La Lift years ago and have always liked it, I can apply it under or over makeup (I do either depending on when I decide it's needed to work some magic) and it gives you an express under eye boost with light-reflecting pigments and raspberry extracts; and perfect to have on hand after those late nights. In the past I have even used it on the odd pimple or two, packing the product on for a little bit and more often than not the swelling goes down and is less red (massive pimples...well those can't be even fixed by a magic jeanie in a bottle and the only viable option is to stay inside watching Netflix in your pyjamas all day, oh and with all mirrors covered...just kidding, Tea Tree oil works a treat for those!)

Then this year I discovered the Puff Off! depuffing eye gel as my eyes have been playing up a lot and getting crazy puffy for some reason (more than usual all over...been stocking up on eye drops too #firstworldproblems) so I wanted something hardcore! STAT! I didn't really think it would work and would just be a gimmick, yes I even told the girl in the store how I felt, but it actually works!! The applicator is shaped like an iron and feels really cool on your skin, I definitely noticed a difference and even smoother as an added bonus. Turns out it's a top seller...funny that ;p


Noskam rating: In general, Benefit products are among my favourites and these two eye products are now on my ‘can’t live without’ favourites list! You can purchase Ooh La Lift from here and Puff Off! here.

Tip: I find it hard to put the cap back on the Puff Off! So, without getting product everywhere, I place the lid/cap on the bench and use the very top of the tube where its creased, to place pressure as I push it into the cap, then it clicks in.
