I had the opportunity to try Befine!

I did a review a couple months ago on Befine – the food skin care product! I was totally thrilled when Alexis with Befine offered to send me some samples to try out!

Make Her Up wants to introduce you to Be.Fine Food Skin Care!

Feed your skin with food ingredients that clean, tone, moisturize and treat skin naturally. Prepared from ingredients sourced from plants and minerals, Be.Fine products offer skin what the body innately knows: you are what you eat!

In fact, Be.Fine’s food-rich elements (including rice and wheat proteins, fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs and spices) are so easily digested by cells, they’re actually edible – but only taste appetizing to your skin.

My favorite product that was sent to me was their Lip Serum! The greatest part of the Lip Serum – is the amount you get.  It is a ridiculous amount! I’m serious – if this bottle didn’t last you 10 years I’d be amazed.

1. Plump up and tighten skin; renew collagen; protect from the effects of UVA
how: Palmitoyl Oligpeptide
why: Plant origin-combination of amino acids, fatty acids and peptide groups to hydrate lips.

2. Supports new collagen growth; soothing, moisturizing and anti-oxidant agent
how: Chamomile Oil
why: Constituent properties promote tissue regeneration and strengthen skin

3. Keeps lips moist
how: Safflower Seed Oil (Cartamus Tinctorius)
why: Vegetable emollient.

Another product I had the pleasure of trying out was their Eye Brightening Treatment.  At first I was a bit skepitcal – as I am with most eye creams.  But after a couple days, I was really pleased to find actual results! I could tell it made a huge difference, and my eyes did seem brighter than before!

1. Alleviate dark circles
how: Seaweed biopeptides (Hydrolyzed Ulva Lactuca Extract)
why: Seaweed biopeptides (Hydrolyzed Ulva Lactuca Extract) enhance the metabolism of the skin to produce collagen.

2. Lifts, tightens and reduces fine lines and wrinkles
how: Avocado oil (Persea Gratissima)
why: Rich moisturizer penetrates skin quickly to repair damage.

3. Diminish the appearance of aging
how: Olive extracts
why: Skin oil analogue, synthetic sebum.

One product I tried, and unfortunately wasn’t a huge fan of, was their Warming Clay Mask.  I found it incredibly difficult to get on my face.  It was VERY thick, and VERY difficult to spread over my skin.  It does actually get warm, but I’m not sure if that’s a good thing.  I dunno, maybe it’s just me – but I don’t really want my face mask’s warm.  Once I finally did get the mask on my skin, I found it hard to get off. 

1. Detoxifying, warming, oil absorbing
how: Kaolin
why: Natural clay with exceptional drawing and oil absorbing properties.

2. Soothes and heals
how: Arnica Montana Flower Extract
why: Anti-inflammatory.

3. Stabilizes free radicals
how: Pomegranate Extract (Punica Granatum)
why: Source of polyphenols, powerful antioxidants.

I would say overall – I really enjoyed trying Be Fine’s products.  The quantities they give you is GREAT, and they’re not that expensive.  Not sure what you want? Why not start with a sampler?
