If you are a Benefit Cosmetics fan who lives in South Africa I’m sure you are aware by now that Benefit Cosmetics is leaving Woolworths and South Africa (So Sad!). And for those of you who didn’t know … I am truly sorry for breaking this very disappointing news to you! I’m not quite sure why they are leaving but it is true and most people are highly puzzled by this decision. However before you shoot the messenger, I have two pieces of good news to shine some light at the end of this tunnel, which I will share with you here
The first piece of good news is that Woolworths has a lot of Benefit Cosmetics products on sale and more products will continue to go on sale until Benefit makes it’s exit! So we can stock up on our favourites while quantities last! Below are some of the products currently on sale are that I would like to stock up on!
Bella Bamba 3D Blusher – Was R280, now R195! … I haven’t tried this one yet but I want to, so definitely going to take advantage of the price drop!
Benefit Cha Cha Tint Lip and Cheek Stain in Mango – Was R315.00, now R220.00! I love multifunctional beauty products and this colour is perfect for Spring which will be approaching us soon!
Benefit Finding Mr. Bright Makeup Set – Was R375.00, now R260.00! Simply great value! … This set has some awesome products, including: Girl meets Pearl liquid pearl for face, Posy Tint poppy-pink tinted lip and cheek stain, Highbeam luminescent complexion enhancer and Erase Paste brightening camouflage for eyes and face … what more can a girl ask for!
The second piece of good news is that even though Benefit Cosmetics is officially leaving South Africa, it doesn’t mean that their products won’t still be available to us! Yup that’s right… it’s true … so to all of you Benefit Cosmetic fans who were in panic mode because you have one or more Benefit products as your must have go to item(s) … you can breath now! We still have access to Benefit Cosmetics thanks to ASOS, an amazing online UK retailer that many of you may be aware of, who offer free worldwide shipping and carry Benefit Cosmetics along with many other cosmetic and clothing lines that are not available here in South Africa! The only drawback to this is that we won’t have testers at our avail to try out new products, but at least we can continue to purchase our favourites and still have the option of trying new products if we choose to. I have to say, when I discovered that they carried Benefit Cosmetics I was relieved and I plan on using them to replenish my Benefit stock when needed.
Were you guys disappointed that Benefit Cosmetics is leaving South Africa? Have you been taking advantage of the sale at Woolworths? Are you as relieved as I am to know that we still have access to their products? Please share in the comments below so we can all be inspired
