Benefit Puff Off Review

Hey guys!

So who else got excited when Benefit first announced that they'll be releasing a new product called the 'Benefit Puff Off Instant Eye Gel'? Well, I don't know about you guys but I was so excited! To be honest, of all Benefit products I've tried so far; none of them were a disappointment to me. Especially the Benefit POREfessional that is just amazing; it's almost like I can't live without it!

So, with high expectation I quickly purchase the Benefit Puff Off in Sephora not even a week after it was first released in Malaysia. I've tried it for a few times now so it's time for product review and my personal opinion!


PRODUCT DETAILS & PACKAGING

This product comes in a cute pastel peach box. It contains 10ml worth of product and the shelf life as stated on the packaging is 6 months. There is a small booklet inside the box with usage instruction. Based on the description, this product will help to smooth out under eyes area so that the puffiness and fine lines will look less visible.

such a cute packagin :) look at the cap!

As usual, Benefit never really lack in the product designing department. This Benefit Puff Off is no exception in showing how cute a Benefit product can look! And well, I totally love cute design like this. The detailing on the cap is one of the thing that I really like about this packaging

iron shaped application tip

It also has a unique applicator tip which is in shape of an iron. I don't know who design this but it's just so cool! Haha! Based on Benefit consumer panel, survey to 31 women after 7 day; 94% said that under eye area looks smoother. Anyway, since this product claims to give instant results so let's see how it works on me.

PERSONAL REVIEW

I decided to test this product two ways. One is under makeup, and the other way is to apply over makeup. The way to apply them is to squeeze once and dot under the eyes (step 1), then using the 'ironing tip' go back and glide to apply it evenly under the eye (step 2).  One extra tip is when wearing over makeup, gently pat with fingertips and blend (step 3).

The product gives off a cooling feeling under the eye right after I apply it on. It has a nice smell that I like and the product consistency is show in the picture below.

Before: Bare Skin

After: Application of Benefit Puff Off on Bare Skin

As you can see above in the before and after pictures are application of Benefit Puff of directly on the bare skin before wearing any make up. As you can see on the eye on the right, before applying the product; the under eye lines is more prominent and 'deeper'. Unlike the instruction which says to just put one dot, I like to apply the product twice under my eyes. You can see on the after picture above, after a few minutes of applying the product you can see that the distinct lines under my eyes started to become less visible. Please pardon the embarrassing tired panda eyes, this what happen when your job requires you to look at computer all the time; and I'm also a night owl so that explains a lot too. LOL

Before: Only foundation and concealer

After: Puff off over foundation and concealer
And above are the before and after picture of Puff Off application over makeup. In this case I only use foundation and concealer as base before applying Puff Off. Please note the picture set for 'on bare skin' and 'over makeup' are actually taken on different days. I stayed up all night the day I took the pictures for 'over makeup' test , so my skin condition is worse that day and my dark circle still can be seen even with concealer. So I used the chance to see if Puff Off actually work out for a more prominent under eye bag and lines. I didn't put too thick of a concealer since I want to make sure we can see still the lines in pictures. The picture doesn't exactly do the justice due to lighting etc. But if you closely look at the before picture, the fine lines is more obvious than in the after picture. You can click on the picture to enlarge it. My eye areas is my biggest concern these days, and after trying up Puff Off I have a few conclusions in overall:

1. It really help to make sure my concealer doesn't creases even after a while, and under eye area looks smoother after full makeup.
2. I like applying the Puff Off first as it tends to make my concealer smudged off a little when I apply it over makeup.
3. Considering my eyes has quite deep and prominent fine lines I think for people who just have a slight under eyes lines they want to hide, this product will work really great on them.

For Malaysian readers, you can purchase this product in Sephora or Benefit outlets.
Probability Repurchase: 7.5/10
