Good Day Everyone~
Today I have a review that's way overdue! I totally forgot about this product until recently while going through my stuff, apologies to Cosmetic Jolse for the delay! D:
Anyway, I have been using this great essence everyday in the morning, and it feels so refreshing and moisturizing on my skin that I might just purchase another and add it into my permanent skin care routine.~

The ingredients does not contain water at all, which is great since you know you won't be getting a diluted essence.
Comes with easy to use pump.
Gel-like, cooling, easily absorbed, and non-sticky.
The texture of this essence when pumped out is in the form of a clear gel. Once spread out it turns more liquid, and is easily spread on to the skin. The texture is one of my favourite aspect of this essence, the gel form is easy to use without making a mess, but at the same time it is watery enough that it can be distributed evenly on to the skin. The texture also makes this essence very cooling and refreshing, I love using this in the mornings for an awaking feel. Compared to most other essences, this Benton essence is not sticky at all! It goes on like water, yet it doesn't contain any water in the ingredients! :0
I can definitely feel an immediate moisturizing effect from this essence, as my skin seems to absorb it within seconds of application! It is super lightweight that I don't even feel like I have used anything on my face. Great for mornings when I don't want my face to feel heavy, especially when I need to apply cream moisturizer and makeup on top of it. As for long term effects, I can't say I have noticed any drastic differences, but my skin do feel smooth and moisturized, and perhaps the stimulation of collagen production will be apparent after an even longer period of time. Lastly, this essence does not contain perfume, but it smells like water, if you get what I mean, and does not break me out or irritates my skin in anyway.
I have been using this essence for about a month now, and I use about 2 pumps for the whole face, and I am still not half way through the bottle yet. Even though the cardboard and bottle packaging are not fancy at all, the plastic bottle makes this product very light, and the pump is convenient to use. I like to think that Benton used most of their resources on developing effective skin care products and not just outer appearances. And indeed I have read heavily positive reviews on Benton products, such as their toner, gel, and steam cream. They are definitely a skin care brand to look out for!
-Soothing and cooling
-Great gel texture
Even though this essence did not create miracle results for my skin, I didn't expect it to anyways. But as an everyday essence for moisture I personally love it! I recommend this to people with all skin types, as it's moisturizing but not oily or heavy.
Although I don't really mind the simple packaging, I would still prefer something that's more eye-catching, that may up the price though, so I'm on the fence about it.
I have seen plenty of raving reviews on these Benton products, I will surely try out more of their products in the future!
Have you tried any Benton products yet? How did you like them?
Thanks to Cosmetic Jolse for letting me try this out, and once again apologies for the late review!
Thanks for reading! :)
