benefit Well Ladies I was in Dublin yesterday, I got the crazy train at 5.37 am. This is super handy if You are travelling to the city centre. I was on a course for work, I’ll do another post and tell You all about that later. I was in Dublin for 8.30 am, and made it to Grafton street by 9am, I had a quick nose in River Island.(post coming later) as my course didn’t start until 10.

We had lunch from 1-2 so I stopped by the Benefit counter in Brown Thomas Where I met a lovely lady called Pamela. I am only recently becoming aquatinted with Benefit. If You have been following me for a while You will know I recently wrote a post on

“They’re real” liners and mascaras over on my Platinum site, read it,



So Pamela sat me down and talked me through, Its potent, eye cream with contains apple seed extract and is great for dehydrated under eyes, which I suffer from. She also showed me the fabulous serum “Instant Comeback” I loved these two products,they are definitely my next purchases.


I treated myself to the “They’re Real” Purple liner, I already have the black & I tried the green a few weeks ago. I love the purple with my blue eyes and its so easy to use too. I love the pop of colour its a refreshing change from black.

Pamela introduced me to “fake up” which is a fab, hydrating under eye concealer, its literally on a stick, and contains rich hydrating cream as well as colour, it hydrates and brightens, in one go. Excellent product and perfect to have in Your handbag.



The real gem for me, and I have raved about it on my previous post, is the “They’re real” Eye make up remover. Its just amazing stuff, its strong enough to take off the heaviest eye make up, but gentle on my dehydrated sensitive eyes. An amazing product definitely well worth the investment, as a lot of rubbing on the delicate eye area is not good and can be very aging, and lets face it no one needs that.

The main thing I love about Benefit is the Benefit girls are so friendly and full of helpful information. It is also available to us here in Castlebar. It can be annoying sometimes reading great reviews of products online but I cant try them out locally. I need to see them to make up my mind, but that’s just me being nosey

The Benefit girls Triona and Laura in Stauntons pharmacy are always on hand to explain how to use the products. This makes such a difference to the customer, as we need this valuable information to use the products properly. Ive had two brilliant experiences at Benefit counters in the last few weeks. One with Triona in Castlebar and Yesterday with Pamela in Brown Thomas. I think the Benefit counter will be seeing a lot more of me in future.



Benefit is available here in Castlebar in Stauntons Pharmacy and are also available from Brown Thomas online, buy them.



As always thanks for reading, and make sure You mention me when You stop by the Benefit counter.

Love Maria xx
