I see Benton products quite a lot on the internet, especially the Snail Bee line. Since my skin doesn’t react negatively with snail-based product, I tend to get a hold of them especially the highly raves one. I had the Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence and I love its effects on my skin. I love it so much that I decided to get the same product but this time, as a cream.
Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream is said to contain 64% snail mucin. It promises to deeply hydrate the skin and bee venom to promote healing and collagen production. This cream is also recommended for people with acne-prone to sensitive skin type.

Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream Review:
Just like Snail Bee High Content Essence, this product is packed in a very minimalist way which I like honestly. The product itself comes in a squeeze type plastic tube which is nice because they are more hygienic and less prone to contamination. In addition, they are more travel friendly!
Benton Snail Bee High Content Cream is a rich white cream that is almost odorless to me. The consistency feels quite thick to me so I just use it at night and at the last step of my skincare routine. Truth be told, I don’t put a lot of stuff on my face (I usually skip ampoules, serum and such) because I live in a tropical country and layering rich products on my face feels really wrong (because it feels really tacky).
My usual routine would be: cleansing-wash-off-mask-toning-essence-cream/sheet mask. So I have used this cream in conjunction with the essence when I had breakout on chin and jaw area some time ago.
My chin/right jaw areas were really red and I get few zits which I find really disturbing. Since this specific line is prescribed for acne-prone to sensitive skin, I gave it a shot. After all, the ingredients list seems neat. In the first week that used this essence-cream combo, I did notice significant effect on my skin. I can actually tell that it is working because my redness somewhat decreased and the pimples healed faster. My skin also looked firmer and fresher so I have come to love this line.
What I do not like, however, is how it made my skin oilier. I feel that the richness of the cream is too much for my skin so I tried using the essence alone and then I got a little less oily. Overall, I like this cream because it does what it claims to do and luckily my skin reacts well with it.
I have used several snail products before that are of HG status of many people out there but sadly they didn’t do anything for my skin. I am just glad to have found a line that works with my skin! I would still repurchase this product once I am out despite the fact that it is too rich for my skin.
Although, that may take some time because as of now, I don’t apply it on my entire face; I just use it on troubled areas and avoid putting this on the oily areas of my face. I highly recommend this product if you have problematic and super dry skin. I guess it would work alright with people even if they have oily skin if they live in a cold area.
