I have read a lot of good reviews for this product and I was sold when it stated that it is recommended for troubled skin. Benton is also a Korean brand that has a wide range of skin care products for every skin types.
I have only tried a few essence brands so far and I will point out some differences that I was able to notice.
According to Benton’s website description:
SNAIL BEE HIGH CONTENT ESSENCE is for all types of skin including sensitive and troubled skin types.Instead of water, Snail Secretion Filtrate is used. This high content essence contains Bee Venom, EGF and various botanical based natural ingredients to help improve your rough and damaged skin from various stress and pollution. In addition to the troubled skin care, cooling and moisturizing effect and a variety of skin improvement, this all-in-one multi-care cosmetic has functional ingredients such as Arbutin and Adenosine that will help your skin looking more flawlessly.
The 60ml product is housed in a plastic bottle with a pump.
I love that this essence is very watery compared to the previous ones I have tried. It is also scentless and the color is transparent. It’s literally applying water to your face, which I like because it is weightless.
How and when do I use it?
Two pumps is enough to cover my whole face. I just gently apply and tap it on my skin until it is fully absorbed. I am using this both morning and evening after the Toner step and before the Serum part.
I have been using this essence religiously for over two months now and I have consumed half of the bottle and I will state some observations below:
1. There are no artificial preservatives, fragrances, and colors in this formulation, making it safe for those with sensitive skin to use. I have troubled skin and it helped a lot in calming redness overnight.
2. It is light yet provides a moisturing effect on my skin.
3. It is best combined with Vitamin C serums or cream to boost and brighten the skin.
4. I noticed minor lightening of my very dark pimple marks. (I hope it will continue to fade my acne scars in time)
Overall, I am totally hooked with this product right now. It is suited for all skin types so you can definitely try this for yourself. Make sure to continuously use it to see the effects.
