Review: Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Cream

11:00:00 PM

Hi everyone!
I've been suffering with dry skin since two years ago and finding the right moisturizer for my skin is quite tricky. I change moisturizer often because it doesn't moisturizing enough. On my journey to find the right moisturizer that I like, I stumbled upon Jesslyn blog post about Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Cream, as she has similar skin problem to me, dehydrated and dry.  Seeing of how she raves about this Benton moisturizer and how it works for her skin. Why didn't I give it a try?

I have been using this moisturizer for around one month, day and night. I guess it's the perfect time to share my opinion about this product, isn't it?

(the product's descriptions are taken from Benton website)


I love this kinda of packaging! It comes in plastic tube with flip flop cap, not only it's easy to open and dispense the product out of the tube. This kind of packing is travel friendly. Plus point for the packaging, it's pink! haha I love pinky stuff <3

Texture and Scent

Scent: It almost has no scent. Thus, it has the same smell with another Benton product that I have tried, it's Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner. It was made with  no fragrance formula which is good for people who have issue with skincare with fragrance. 

Texture: I'm kinda surprise with the moisturizer texture because I though it might be creamy but, it has the texture between gel and cream which is remind me of the texture of sleeping pack. Actually, the texture is quite thin compare to cream but when the gel-cream was spread into the skin, it feels watery and takes around 2-3 minutes for the product to fully sink and get absorb into the skin. When the moisturizer fully absorb into the skin, it leaves healthy dewy finish  and hydrate the skin quite well which is good for my dry skin even though this product is suitable for all skin types. 

My Thought

I have been using this moisturizer for around one month and so far I like it because it doesn't give me any breakout. As it can be use for all skin types, the formula is lightweight and it can be use for any season.  As for me who live in humid country and have super dry skin, using it alone without any other product do not really give so much moisture and hydration but it helps a lot to keep my skin smoother, supple and didn't crack up whenever I use matte makeup. But, if you have oily skin, using this product by itself can be enough for your skin and it also can give heavier feeling as it gives healthy dewy finish, but for normal to dry skin. This product is actually lightweight and comfortable to use as it offers a basic moisturizer that you might need.

Another thing that I like from this product is the packaging and the price. The packaging is simple and travel friendly, for the price it's affordable (only $15!)  and I'm considering to repurchase it as it gives nice result to my skin.
