Wonderful
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Rosacea, Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Large Pores, Sensitive Skin

Despite all the negative reviews everywhere, this worked wonders for me. I have combination skin in the summer and dry flaky skin in the colder months, rosacea around the sensitive parts of my face mainly under the nose, my cheeks and chin.

This essence has literally no scent, it is almost serum like rather than a watery essence.It is lightweight, quick absorbing and packs a punch with snail secretion filtrate and bee venom and this brings suppleness back to the skin. It contains arbutin which are great friends with vit c, and when paired together, it gave a visible boost to my skin's elasticity, brightness and moisture levels.

I use this with my snail sheet mask and finish it off with missha's aqua snail renew cream. All the snail goodness in one day!

It is my first love!

Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Sensitive Skin

Since two years ago, my skin was super sensitive and irritable. Benton snail essence was the first product I tried that proved able to soothe my angry skin.

One of my favorites in my skincare routine. The texture is very light but hydrating, so it is good for use in the morning and evening. I have no problem at all. Likewise, with my skin, I can feel my skin really like this product. I used to use this product when my skin was feeling sore, itching, irritation. Then, my skin becomes calmer, reduce itching and also sore. And that is definitely effective in reducing inflammation of cystic acne.

But I think, it is not the kind of skincare that gives instant results for your skin. After one month of use, I can see that the inflammation is reduced, the redness also decreased, and the skin also felt calmer and less irritable.:)

Good but not the greatest

My thought on Benton snail bee high content essence
I do like this product, but it doesn’t wow me completely. The packaging is great, a sturdy bottle and a pump, it doesn’t get more hygienic than this. I did have some problems with my bottle though, it seemed to be twisting up on its own. The bottle is a screw bottle and you can always reuse the bottle it you need to fill in with something else.

I will try some more products like this because I am really interested in this type of product, but I am not sure I will repurchase this one. About the anti-wrinkling abilities, you should always know that no product can erase wrinkles. What they do is slow down the process and help moisturize the area so it looks less wrinkled.

I had huge problems with the smell of this one, not that it would stop me from using it, but I actually smelled sweat when applying. I heard from a reader that she actually smelled chlorine, so maybe this is what’s causing my nose to misbehave. And believe me, I have smelled my armpits so many times, making sure it is not me. And just for the record it is not. When I smell the product from the bottle or in my hands I smell nothing, but as soon as I apply it the smell comes and stays for just a second.

The liquid is a clear gel like texture and it is really easy to apply. It penetrates really fast on my skin, leaving a somewhat sticky feeling, but that goes away as soon as I apply the next layer.
