Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Daily Replenishing Oil is one of the few facial oils that I actually see results when I use it. I remember the feeling of disappointment I felt when I first started using Tarte’s Maracuja Oil. It’s not that Tarte’s formula was incredibly moisturizing because it was! It was just that they kept telling me over and over how it contained Vitamin C and how much smoother and brighter my skin would appear after using it.
Brighter never came unfortunately and I felt pretty disappointed over that!
There’s no denying facial oils have had and are still having their moment. Sure, the trend has died down slightly but it proved a trend that had a lasting impact on the skincare world with not only major brands but also drugstore brands creating their own variations of moisturizing facial oils to smooth, soften, and help prevent the signs of aging.
Like many of you, I have my favorite facial oils! One of which that comes to mind is Clinique’s Smart Treatment Oil and Physicians Formula Argan Oil. And, like many of you, I have several facial oils on tap and on rotation that I use nightly. Which brings to mind the fact that I’m not terribly comfortable using facial oil in the day. Even though I have drier skin I still feel like facial oils are a bit too heavy for daily use!
This is and the fact that I can actually see visible results is where Lancome’s Bienfait Multi-Vital Daily Replenishing Oil excels.
Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Daily Replenishing Oil ($49) is created with six antioxidant rich oils that not only hydrate skin but also promise to visibly brighten it. It unfortunately, has one major issue and that would be the fact it contains fragrance. I’m not bothered by fragrance in my skin care but many are and some are even irritated by it. So sadly, if you are one of those people this isn’t the best formula for you!
One of the major benefits of this formula is the fact that it contains triglycerides that absorb more easily into skin and feel a lot lighter than pure oil blends but still have the same hydration properties. I’m not terribly comfortable using facial oil as a daily treatment so I typically reserved it for night use and repair. In the case of Lancome’s formula I feel very, very comfortable using it not only nightly but also daily. The formula is quick to absorb, very light, and doesn’t leave me shiny or greasy.
And as all great infomercials say, “BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!”
Not only do I get fabulous lightweight hydration from this blend but it also produces visible results. As promised, it does brighten. Granted, if I use it in the day I don’t instantly see my complexion brighten up! But if I use it overnight in the morning I not only wake up with smoother, softer skin but also my duller skin is eased and my skin looks so much more brighter and awake. My skin tends to look tired and dull due to dryness but this brightens up my entire complexion.
If you don’t mind fragrance and you want visible results from your facial oil I can’t recommend Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Daily Replenishing Oil enough! This is one of the few oils that not only hydrated but does indeed, give skin a brighter more youthful appearance.
