Korean beauty is pretty much flooded with snail containing products. Being the amateur kbeauty fan that I am then, I just grab whatever is main stream. Mass production means high demand, after all. Now, I don’t know about you but I am honestly not grossed out by the thought of putting snail goo all over my face so when the snail train passed by, I jumped instantly. Luckily, my skin doesn’t have any negative reactions with snail products so I just grab them whenever one piques my curiosity. Naturally, my inquisitive eyes did not miss Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence.
This product claims to be free of harmful ingredients while giving your skin the nutrients it needs. The star ingredients Snail Secrete and Bee Venom is said to have anti-aging properties and ability to heal acne scar and hyperpigmentation. It also promises to improve skin vitality and hydration.

Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence Review:
Snail Bee High Content Essence is packed in pump-type, kind of see through bottle. I appreciate its packaging because I like being able to tell how much is left in my product. This essence is colorless, almost odorless and has almost watery consistency.
It spreads on my face quite easily and gets absorbed in a jiffy! Since I have combination skin, I get easily turned off when a product feels thick or a bit heavy and this essence doesn’t give me that feeling. It is very light-weight; it doesn’t feel tacky at all!
I apply this product after toning and I usually put on 5-6 pumps on my face and neck because I am lavish like that (or it could be that I have a really big face). Kidding aside, I just like saturating my entire face and neck with this essence.
In all honesty, it felt like just a regular essence the first time I used it until I woke up. The hydrating power of this product is superb. My face is plump and well hydrated but doesn’t look oily nor felt oily. I also noticed that it somehow made my face firmer or at least looked firmer. I don’t know how to describe it well but it kind of made my face appear a little less flaccid (I honestly think that my face looks a bit ugly first thing in the morning because I feel that its saggy or something. Please comment down if you feel it too so I’d know that I am normal). Upon googling, I’ve read that bee venom gives you that face lift effect so that must be it, not to mention the anti-aging properties coming from the snail secrete.
I’ve had this essence in my stash for some time now. As you can see, I am almost done with my bottle. I see alternate products depending on my skin’s need. I find myself using this for when my skin is irritated, I’d know because I get red patches on my skin as if I am allergic.
Now that it is summertime for me, I am rekindling my relationship with Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence. While I can’t see much of brightening with this product, it can effectively lighten pimple marks with longer usage. At least that’s what I get with continued use.
If you still cant tell my conclusion with all that gushing, Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence is definitely a keeper! I do recommend it to people who want to try snail products but is turned off by the goo. I think this works okay with people who have combination to oily skin. People with dry skin might want to use it with heavy cream for better hydration.
