I took the liberty of stocking up on Benefit Lemon Aid during the Sephora VIB Event because lord knows I can’t do without it. It’s one of the few products I’d need a lifetime supple of if the zombie plague hits, it’s a staple product I use daily and never ever do I skip out I applying, it’s the product I’d mourn, cry, and have a funeral for if Benefit should ever decide to discontinue it (god forbid!).
Benefit Lemon Aid is something I’ve used for at least ten years now. It’s a color correcting lid primer (don’t confuse it with an eyeshadow primer, it isn’t) that has a yellow tint. Now……yellow should neutral redness, veining, etc on fairer skin. You’d think something like this wouldn’t work but the color is actually universally flattering across a wider range of skin tones than you’d imagine. I don’t have redness around my eyes but without Benefit Lemon Aid I’d look a heck of a lot more tired than I am if I didn’t use it at all. Typically it’s the first thing I apply prior to ANYTHING else on my face. I pat it on my lids, follow up with BB Cream application, and apply my concealer.
It brightens my eyes up, prefers and evens out the skin tone around my lids, and just creates a fresh, flawless look. We’re concealing under our eyes so why not above them as well?
I can’t live without Benefit Lemon Aid. It is an absolute essential product!
DO try it.
It’s a must have in my opinion.
Once you use it you likely won’t ever want to be without it.
