I wish I was more adventurous with food like I am with skincare.  I love to discover the new and unusual, just like these products I have here on my desk.

I was kindly sent two products from the Korean Skincare Brand Benton.  The two items are from the Snail Bee range - High Content Lotion and High Content Mask Pack.

Benton Snail Bee High Content range is suitable for all skin types including sensitive and troubled skin types. As part of the ingredients water has been replaced with Snail Secretion Filtrate and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water. This already is extremely strange for me.  I do not think I have every come across skincare that did not contain water.

The High Content Lotion is a lightweight lotion, infused with potent anti-ageing snail mucin and Bee Venom, EGH, Hyaluronic Acid and various botanical natural ingredients to help improve the skin's texture and damage that are caused by stress and environmental factors. Other ingredients include Niacinamide and Adenosine which help brighten skin, minimise the appearance of blemishes, scarring and wrinkles. It also soothes, protects, firms; restores and hydrates.  There is no fragrance or colour added to this product.

When applied on the face it does feel different to other moisturisers I have tried in the past, the moisturiser doesn’t absorb quickly into the skin but eventually does. It takes around a good 5-10 minutes before skin feels touch dry. I do not recommend to apply makeup immediately. I would wait 20 minutes after your skincare routine before applying makeup.  It's not oily, I think the absorption rate is slow due to it's water substitute.  Once the moisturiser is dry, skin feels soft and smooth.  It can be a little of an inconvenience if your in a hurry but the wait is worth it because skin looks and feels pretty good afterwards.

I love my sheet masks so I had no hesitation giving this a go. The Snail Bee High Content sheet masks claims to calm irritation, reduce redness, brighten, even skin tone, and plump the skin. It's jam packed with added nutrients like Willow Extract  and Oligopeptide-1. This helps with cell turnover. The mask sheet is quite thin, thinner than other masks I have used but in a good way as I was able to modify on my face easily for a good fit. The mask is saturated with the serum.  Again, this is also fragrance free.

I personally haven't tried many Korean skincare and I definitely liked these two products. This has made me curious to try more of Korean beauty. 

Benton products are reasonably priced - Snail Bee High Content Lotion RRP $26.95 and Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack RRP $3.20 each or $14.95 for a pack of 5.
