I'm a sucker for a good deal, and so, when I noticed that Benefit had a duty-free counter at Birmingham airport my little eyes lit up (whilst my boyfriend's slightly turned to despair at the thought of me browsing for roughly forever) and I had to head in. Realising at the same time that I'd left my normal face wash at home, and knowing I'd be slathering myself in sun cream and a fair amount of foundation for the upcoming week of holiday, I couldn't resist trying out Benefit's Foamingly Clean facial wash. And, finding out it came with two little samples of other skin care products didn't hurt either!
Having sensitive skin means that in the past face washes I've tried have been very much hit and miss, particularly because they are often too harsh and cause break-outs - aka exactly what I don't want. So, I was a bit wary when starting out with this as my skin was going to be under a lot of oil-induced pressure whilst on holiday.
Thankfully the results were amazing, and I can safely say that this is the best face wash I've ever used, and it is going to be a must-have in my bathroom cupboard from now on. It allowed for such a deep clean that despite eating dairy, using oily sun cream and using liquid foundation on holiday I didn't see one spot appear. Plus, unlike many decent face washes I've tried it didn't go the opposite way and completely dry my skin out either!
Finally (after falling a little in love with this product), I lent it to my sister, who has even more sensitive skin than me, and she absolutely loved it too, despite usually being very much against using face wash on a daily basis, preferring cold water.
