This is my first review on IMBB. My skin type is super oily, troubled and sensitive. Like everyone else, I too have tried n number of products, but nothing really worked out! One day, I came across a website which claimed about Korean products and their efficacy. Finally, I did a lot of research and bought my first Korean cosmetic. Many ladies must have come across this, and when I first heard of it, even I felt kind of disgusted. Then, after a lot and lot of research, I came to know that snail mucus is meant to cure lot of skin related issues and it keeps it healthy and moisturized.
This product contains 90% snail extract and bee venom instead of water. Powerful ingredients such as snail mucin and bee venom help to heal acne, fade acne scars, brighten skin tone, and maintain hydration throughout the day. Snail mucin supports natural cell regeneration and replenishes moisture to increase firmness, and bee venom has natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties. The gel-like essence is also fragrance free! Best recommended for those with sensitive and troubled skin.

My Experience with Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence:
The gel is odorless and you won’t feel like you are applying snail mucus on your face. It’s more like water after application. Product claims that they have used snail filtrate instead of water, along with bee venom. It also contains functional ingredients such as Arbutin and Adenosine which helps whitening your skin and remove wrinkles. It comes in a brown cardboard. The bottle is sturdy brown plastic with a pump on it. Pump makes the product really hygienic.
Generally, my face is super itchy and oily. Every morning I will wake up like a kadai. And usually, gets small, itchy bumps on chin and near eyebrows (no idea why). And, I have pores on my cheeks. After using Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence, my skin completely changed. After cleansing, I apply it all over my face using fingers. It disappears like a water into the skin. Next morning, my face is not at all oily! And, the itchiness has subsided too. I started to get results within a week. I kind of feel my pores are less visible now.
I’m completely in love with this product. There are many snail products available, but I personally feel like all other companies are more commercial. But this, Benton, is some amazing product. And, it does give a cooling effect. After cleansing, after toner or without toner, just dab a pump or two all over your face with clean fingers. Then, go to bed. You can apply even at morning, but so far I have not tried that.
Pros of Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence:
• Leaves no oily film – boon for oily faces
• No smell – no traces of snail smell or anything
• Instant cooling effect
• Really, really helps troubled skin and soothes it
• Pimples get subsided with just one use
• Improvement in skin tone
• Skin looks more healthy and radiant after use
Cons of Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence:
• Sadly, availability
Watch Out’s: I don’t think someone can be allergic to this product as myself, having heavily sensitive skin, is happy to use this product.
Would I Recommend Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence?
Happily to all the ladies with sensitive skin who are prone to itchiness, oil and pigmentation. I am not sure about its efficacy on dry skin though.
