This is Aigoo’s guide to Benton's bestsellers to achieve youthful, radiant skin.
Cleanser: Deep Green Tea Cleansing Foam
The Deep Green Tea Cleansing Foam is known for its use of green tea from Boseong, an area of Korea widely prized for its green tea fields. Known for its superior antioxidant properties, green tea is also excellent at effective sebum control. Benton’s cleanser uses four forms of Boseong green tea to help manage oil-water imbalances in the skin.
It’s also got camellia oil to further nourish and protect the skin, leaving your face restored and refreshed!
Toner: Aloe BHA Skin Toner
Those who are just getting into skincare may want to begin using exfoliating toners, but might be afraid of how they’ll react. Benton’s Aloe BHA Skin Toner contains 0.5% BHA, which is the minimum amount required to produce effective results in pore minimisation. There’s also three forms of aloe vera in this toner, which will help soothe inflamed skin.
This is perfect for those with extra sensitive skin who want to exfoliate with as little irritation as possible.
Moisturiser: Snail Bee High Content Lotion
Ah yes, the famous Snail Bee lotion! Fans of K-Beauty might already know about the incredible skin-repairing benefits of snail filtrate. Benton takes it one step further by using bee venom to increase your skin’s elasticity and radiance.
This lotion is designed for those looking for a product to tighten and brighten using natural ingredients.
Sunscreen: Skin Fit Mineral Sun Cream (50+/PA++++)
For those who enjoy mineral sunscreens, the Benton Skin Fit Mineral Sun Cream provides broad-spectrum coverage with a minimal white cast. It also has a sweet scent of rosemary for those who don’t enjoy the smell of sunscreen. It’s also got a lovely watery texture, giving a silky-smooth application on your skin.
Benton’s sunscreen is a great start option for those who are interested in the benefits of mineral sunscreens, and don’t want to experience any of the drawbacks!
