Benton Aloe Bha Skin Toner Review:
I am a bit toners and FTEs junkie. I mean, yes, I am skin care junkie from head to toe, but there is something about these liquid wonders that make my wallet itch. I have all sorts of them: pH adjusting, hydrating, with or without snail mucin, all types of fermented everything… Well, you get the picture. This one in particular is with aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, snail secretion filtrate, and very interesting BHA – salicylic acid.

Benton Aloe Bha Skin Toner Review:
This toner is transparent, slightly viscose, watery liquid and has no scent nor colour. It is packed in 200 ml (6.76 fl.oz.) green, plastic bottle with the pump. The bottle is conveniently transparent so you can see how much of the product is in.
Ingredients list is (if I do may say so myself) “modernized hanbang” – herbal, snaily, full of humectants (butylene glycol, glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, beta-glucan…) but with a touch up of today – salicylic acid.
As its percentage is only at 0.5%, this is not an exfoliating toner, nor does its pH let it to be. It is around 6 and definitely far from exfoliating threshold of 4.2.
There is also polyglutamic acid, biopolymer derived from Japanese fermented soybeans called “natto”. Some sources state exfoliating and deeply penetrating features of this compound, but some sources deny it. Let’s just put here that there are studies that claim this is non-toxic and non-immunogenic compound with some benefits to the skin.
I use this toner only and only as hydrating toner. Sometimes it’s my first step after cleansing steps, sometimes is somewhere in the middle of my routine lineup.
My skin loves it. This toner leaves it fresh, hydrated and somewhat moisturized. You know that bouncy skin feeling when you touch it? Yes, yes, I know, you never touch your face. ☺
Overall, this is great toner. Well formulated, non-irritating, hydrating. One of those products that you somehow always have around.
I recommend this toner to every skin type excluding ones that are sensitive to BHAs or any here listed ingredient.
So will I repurchase? Yes, probably. But there are so many toners outhere waiting for me…
