[Review] Benton - Aloe BHA Skin Toner

Hello everyone! :)

To be very honest with you, I have totally no idea of the brand Benton before this. Very much inspired (in many ways) by Liah Yoo, Youtube Beauty Creator, I have then decided to try on one of her skincare favourites. (showing love to Liah!! ...and most likely she won't read this anyway haha)

Review; Benton's Aloe BHA Skin Toner
Benton's Aloe BHA Skin Toner | 200ml

Suitable for all skin types, Benton's Aloe BHA Skin Toner uses aloe barbadensis leaf water instead of plain H20 (water). Besides that, it contains Beta-Glucan (an anti-inflammatory and promotes collagen production), Snail Secretion Filtrate (helps in reducing acne scarring and even out overall skin tone) and Betaine (protects against cellular dehydration).

Review; Benton's Aloe BHA Skin Toner

The highlight of the highlights? It contains active ingredient Salicylic Acid (0.5%) which is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that is often used as an acne treatment. Being said that 0.5% is the highest percentage of BHA which is allowed in Korea Cosmetic Industry, Benton has naturally gained the public's affection.

In fact, a few months earlier I suffered from some kind of skin infection which caused quite some little red patches on my face, mainly on the cheeks (as below).

I noticed after using Benton's Aloe BHA Skin Toner and Snail Bee High Content Essence, my skin condition improved and much more stabilized/under-control. Don't get me wrong. I still have acne breakouts occasionally.

Review; Benton's Aloe BHA Skin Toner

The packaging is simple and clean. I like the dark green background with white fonts. Previously, they used spray nozzle (but customers didn't like it); hence, their updated packaging comes with push-nozzle (as above).

Let's take a moment to understand the brand a little bit more.

From Benton official website, the brand's name and vision is actually inspired by the movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". The story was about an old man who starts aging backwards and ultimately dies as a new born baby. During the mist of the bizarre consequences, he has no choice but to leave Daisy, his love interest. The turning point for the brand Benton is, what if Daisy could have also turned the time back on her physical appearance, would she be happier? Would they be happier?

Wow. Amazing brand story.

Check out Liah Yoo's Korean Skincare Secrets : LAYERING TONER 7 TIMES?! 🌊 The 7 Skin Method Explained where featuring Benton's Snail Bee High Content Skin.

Guess what I'm going to do next???

YASSSS how about experimenting the new Korean skincare trend? LAYERING TONER FOR 7 TIMES!!!!!!!

Liah uses Benton's Snail Bee High Content Skin in the video. And today, I'm going to demonstrate by using Aloe BHA Skin Toner.

Let's get started~ ^^

Give it a pump of 2~3 times. Apply it all over the face and neck area.

First layer should be quickly absorbed by the skin. Apply the second layer.

...And the third layer...

...And continue with the forth layer... The skin takes longer time to fully absorb by now...

...Honestly I'm getting a bit annoyed at this point already... the fifth layer...

...This is taking ages... longer waiting time... the sixth layer...

At last, the seventh layer of toner. We made it!! \\(^0^)//

Before vs. After

Well not much of difference you can see from the appearance, but definitely my skin is soft and "chok-chok" (very moisture in Korean) after 7 times layering. It is really mind blowing to see my skin can actually absorb so much of "moisture". In other words, could it also imply that we might feed our skin so much less than it needs?

Other than applying skincare, we must also be reminded to drink more water to keep our body and skin hydrated (a serious reminder for myself too ><).

This product is available at Althea for RM74.


Rating: 4/5

Recommend: Yes. Specially recommend if you suffer from acne trouble. It really helps.

Repurchase: Yes, if I couldn't find other similar alternatives with 0.5% or higher BHA content.

For your reference.
