I’m here to review Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream, a product I’ve been using for about a month. I got it a sample size and definitely would splurge on a full size – it’s just that good.benefit total moisture facial cream review | as GOLD as it gets

I have a skin condition called seborrhea. It’s really common but occurs more often in men than in women and when you have a flare it makes your skin super flakey and seem like its overly dry when its really not.  You also get it all over your head, it’s the same thing as when infants get “cradle cap”, its just how your body reacts to a certain yeast. But that doesn’t matter for this review…

I’m sure there are thousands of other women out there dealing with the same problem but no one talks about it. I hate the smells of the sulfur and creams that the dermatologist prescribes me so I’ve been on the hunt for something better and I’m really loving Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream. It’s obviously not as strong as medicated creams but it smells gorgeous with a perfumey smell – think floral but kind fresh and soapy. It definitely smells more high end than drugstore.

This works so nicely on me. I put it on before my primer and it really quenches all my dry patches. Seborrhea is largely flakey around your forehead, hairline and eyebrows. I can also tap it on during the day if I’m noticing I’m a little flakey – it doesn’t mess with my makeup.

If I have a big flare, especially in winter, I will need to use medicated creams to try to reduce it. But this is a great alternative for the meantime. I could also see this being hugely helpful to women with dry skin. It is super creamy and non-greasy. If you have normal to oily skin I would definitely use sparingly as it could make you more oily – it just has that much moisture!

Have you tried this? Do you have a favorite moisturizer?

  1. My favorite moisturizer is coconut oil but I’m such a sucker for anything from Benefit! Maybe once my 54oz tub of coconut oil runs out I’ll give this a shot 😉

  2. This stuff did not work for my moody skin lol. you’re lucky! i have to stick with moisturizers that are only sold from a dermatologists office or my face will flip out for 2+ weeks. -__-
