Review: Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Cream

2 Jul

I browsed Benton Cosmetics‘ website many times before. I know almost everyone in the K-Beauty world knows their famous Snail Bee High Content Essence. They are more than that. I must say all their products have few ingredients making them concentrated. Two months ago, I had the opportunity to apply as their reviewer. Luckily I was picked!☺ I’m happy to introduce to you their latest product, Cacao Moist and Mild Cream.☺❤

Few years ago cacao became a popular ingredient in Korea. It’s rich in antioxidants and its oil and butter are good at moisturizing skin. Benton released this product as a light moisturizer for the summer. Im using this for more than a week now and I’m ready to share my thoughts.

Description:
Benton’s Cacao Moist and Mild Cream is a lightweight cream made of healthy ingredients. Having a light texture, even a generous amount of the cream does not leave skin heavy. Cacao extracts and hyaluronic acid help to replenish dry skin, leaving it dewy and vibrant.

There’s a foil that you have to remove. It’s paraben free so you have 6 months to use it all up after opening.☺

Pros:
– Affordable
– Simple tube packaging
– 50 grams of product
– Little goes a long way
– Few ingredients
– Fragrance and paraben free
– Cruelty free
– Feels light
– Instantly hydrates skin
– Hydration lasts throughout the day
– Makes skin dewy, soft and plump
– Did not trigger my contact dermatitis

Cons:
– Might be heavy at day time for very oily skin

Let’s talk about price, packaging and ingredients first. It’s $16 for 50 grams. Its plastic tube comes in a box. The box contains all the information you need to know (description, content, manufacturing & expiration dates). Very detailed indeed. The tube makes it easier to control the amount of product. There’s no leak so it’s okay for traveling as well.

For the product performance, it looks like a lotion-y type of cream. It only takes a few seconds to be fully absorbed. Little amount goes a long way. I just need a pea size to cover all the areas I want. This came just in time because my cheek, nose and chin areas were dry. My skin felt instantly moisturized once I apply it. It feels light but gives intense hydration. I didn’t know cacao can actually do that. It also gives off that dewy plump look in real life. It keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day. I’m very sweaty so I wipe my face often. I still feel moisturized even if it gets wiped off with my sweat or even with water. That’s surprising. It really sinks in the skin.

Overall, I like it and I’ll continue to use in my daily routine from now on. Good thing it did not trigger my contact dermatitis/eczema. That being said, it’s safe for sensitive skin. If you have oily skin like me, I suggest applying this at night as an intense nourishment. You can use this to spot treat dry patches too. I’d recommend this for all skin types.

Have you tried anything from Benton or what are you planning to try? I personally would like to try their Snail Bee High Content Essence and Fermentation Essence. ☺
