Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Daily Replenishing Oil

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 Oil1

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.

Loves it!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model.

    Love facial oils , body oils, cleansing oils. Can’t ever get enough! Thank you for the review. Looking forward to checking this out at Nordstrom.

    Although I’m not sure about the Smashbox primer oil. Seems gimmicky?

    • Isabella Muse

      yeah, it is! 🙂 I reviewed it a few weeks ago, just wasn’t feeling it!

    Wow, this sounds good, I love using Josie Maran’s Argan Oil with my daily moisturizer, because I have dark brown skin and I do not wanna look ashy , so I don’t mind a little bit of shine. Lately though I guess with age (35) or whether, this combo is not working as well as it used to, so this Lancome Oil may be worth trying if I could get hydrating and brightening results that would be great! Thanks for the review!

    • Isabella Muse

      my pleasure! I use Josie too but I can’t get away with in the day sadly! Too rich! Lancome is much more lighter 😀

    Ugh, why do they insist on the fragrance? I can’t use any of the Lancome skincare products because of the fragrance. Some of them trigger my asthma and wheezing. Adding heavy fragrance to skincare is, to me, such an outdated idea. I don’t know why companies still insist on doing this.

  • Robin

    Do you feel that normal to oily skin would benefit from this? I worry that extra hydration may be too much for my skin.

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m always a little iffy about facial oil on oily skin! I’m really not sure!

  • JoAnn

    I am always confused about oils. Do you use this as a moisturizer, under moisturizer, or mix it with your moisturizer?

    • Isabella Muse

      I use it after my serum and before my moisturizer.

  • Shana

    The ingredients for this aren’t too hard to source, taking out all the synthetic ones. I might try and make this for myself! I won’t need a preservative since it’s all oils and already contains vitamin e. I do wonder if their squaline is plant based but an olive derived one would probably work!

    I’ve never formulated a serum using caprylic/capric tryglyceride as a base (although I’ve been wanting to) so now I have to figure out how the measurements should go…should be interesting :p The only things in this I’ve never used before are the triglycerides, the dicapryl carbonate (if I can find a natural derived one), and squaline.

    Thanks for this review! I had been wondering about this oil. I went to check it out & the SA steered me toward the $$$$ Absolue oil. So I left with nothing. I have been using Rosehip Oil & I swear it has lightened some brown spots more than Obagi or anything else did. Glad to hear about being able to use the Lancome oil during the day. And as always thanks for including ingredient lists in your reviews!

    • Isabella Muse

      My pleasure Emily! $185 is a bit much to spend on facial oil :-/ Glad to hear Rosehip works for you!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aw my pleasure!
