Benefit Instant Comeback Facial Serum Review

Benefit were recently giving away some samples of their new serum on their website, and I ordered one.
The great thing is you get to try out a product without even having to leave the comfort of your own house, let alone having to ask for samples at the counter.


They come packaged in the cutest little box. The sample is also a lot bigger than I thought it would be (none of those sachets that go everywhere!). It has 5ml in it, so a decent amount to try it out.


Then I realised that the serum was marketed as a age-defying booster. I don't need to be worrying about wrinkles just yet, but I decided to give it a go anyway. It claims to boost the youthful look of skin, leaving it plumped, hydrated, smoother, firmer and energized.


I haven't tried a serum yet (as it's so difficult to get an affordable one in the drugstore) so I didn't really know what to expect.

The texture of it feels like water, but more sticky. It also has a citrus scent. It absorbs quite quickly into the skin, and it feel nice on the skin, quite lightweight.

However, I didn't notice any lasting effect from using it. Although as this is a sample that's not to say you won't find good results with it if you use it regularly.

It retails for £36 for 30ml here, which I find incredibly pricey. I might look for alternatives for my skin instead.

I hope this post was useful!

Have you ever tried serums, which ones would you recommend?

  1. I've never tried serums before. They said it's really good to use to keep more moisture in - better than a concealer... but I'm not quite in that bandwagon yet..

    1. Yeah apparently they're supposed to absorb into the skin better than moisturisers, neither am I! :) xx

  2. I really enjoy using serums but only recently as I am not amazing with skincare routines, didn't even know you could get samples off the site! xxx

    1. Haha neither am I, I try to use as few products as I can get away with! A lot of brands regularly release samples (especially when they have new products) :) xx

  5. It is really hard to find a drug store serum isn't it! I love Benefit makeup but I think I'd rather go to different brands for skincare, not sure why haha! :)

  6. I've never tried a skin serum before although I do use a few different hair oils. The promises of this one sound amazing but I agree Benefit is super pricey for the sizes they offer! I'm annoyed at myself for missing out on this sample ;) x

    1. I know, £36 for a serum is a bit much! Don't worry I'll keep you informed next time ;) xx
