Benton snail bee high content lotion first impression

Benton snail bee high content lotion

I only received a small sample size of this in one of my Bomibags so, I will only make a first impression on it since it is simply too little to give a good review on it.

This is a lotion, which is basically a light moisturizer. I use it as a first moisturizer, but if you have oilier skin you might manage with this as your only moisturizer.

To my skin this is not doing much. It is moisturizing but my skin is super dry and I could not manage with this on its own, instead I use it as a first moisturizer, that means that I add another moisturizer on top of this. If you are using a good sunblock during the day this might also be enough for your skin. It really all comes down to what your skin likes and what it needs. My skin is demanding moisture to the point to ridiculous.

I received a 5 ml sample in one of my Bomibags so I will only make a first impression of it since 5 ml is way too little to say anything for sure.
I always tend to have a problem with this series, the whole series smells like sweat to me. This is the fourth product in this series and I have the same problems with all of them.

Benton Honest Cleansing Foam first impression

Benton Honest Cleansing Foam

I received an 8 gr sample size and had the opportunity to test it out, but I haven’t been able to test it enough for a full review. I usually want at least a month to be able to truly know if I like it or not.

According to others the pH level is quite high, around 8 or 9 which is not very good if you have dry or sensitive skin. I really had too small amount to see how it acted over time on my skin. According to Benton themselves they claim that the pH is between 5-7. But I really can’t say since I don’t have any pH testers myself… Yet.

The magic of snails, Benton snail bee high content essence review

Benton snail bee high content essence

I had huge problems with the smell of this one, not that it would stop me from using it, but I actually smelled sweat when applying. I heard from a reader that she actually smelled chlorine, so maybe this is what’s causing my nose to misbehave. And believe me, I have smelled my armpits so many times, making sure it is not me.

What is that smell, is it sweat, o my. Is it me?  Hmmm no its not. WHAT. My minds are playing the same tricks on me every single time I use this product. I pump it out in my palms, rub them together, and as soon as I apply it a smell sweat. And just as quickly the smell is gone. I do know it isn’t me because I smelled my armpits more than once after applying this and I still have the same feeling or smell about it. I gross you out don’t I? Please tell me that we are more out there, tell me I am not alone with this weird feeling.

Other than that, I don’t have much to say about first impression on this. It feels really nice on my skin and that is about it. I can’t say anything about my wrinkles yet, or I am not really expecting it to do anything about them.
