Today I am reviewing a very
interesting multi oil, produced by the Korean brand Benton – Let`s Carrot Multi
Oil. For my best surprise a month ago I was selected to be one of the 100
testers of this product. I have a soft spot for oils, I use a lot of them and
it was a pleasure to test such a wonderful new product! Thank you, Benton, for
The product is new for the
company`s portfolio and its main ingredient is carrot seed oil, derived from
German carrots. German carrots are known for their high content of carotene and
vegetable oil that effectively moisturizes the skin, enhances its elasticity
and provides it with valuable nutrients. The Vitamin A found in carrots helps
with smoothening the skins texture over time. The oil is suitable for various
purposes – you can incorporate in your skin care or hair care, use it as a cleansing
method, put it as an additive to you hand and body care or use it as a makeup
Apart from its main ingredient –
carrot seed oil, the multi oil is infused with a high number of precious and
beneficial oils for the skin – sunflower seed oil, olive fruit oil, purple
gromwell root oil, canola oil, grape seed oil, evening primrose oil, avocado
oil, sandalwood oil, tea tree oil and peppermint oil along with the antioxidant
Vitamin E and triglycerides. All of the ingredients establish a powerful cocktail
that creates an oil film that protects the evaporation of moisture in the skin
and gives it a nice smooth texture
The Let`s Carrot Multi Oil is
hypoallergenic and it is best suitable for dry and dull skin. It does not cause
any skin irritation. The product is formulated without artificial fragrances,
colors and PEGs. Applied to the skin, it focuses on balancing the skin moisture
and gives it a nice and healthy glow and elasticity.
The bottle of the product is very
steady and it contains 30 ml of the oil. It has a dosimeter, making it super
easy do put the right amount on your skin. The oil has a pleasant orange color,
due to the carrots. Put on the skin the color disappears. The consistency is
super light, runny, almost watery-like and not very greasy for an oil.
By the time I started to use the
multi oil in my daily routine, my skin (face, body and hands) was suffering
from a lot of dryness, due to the cold weather and poor diet. After application
it sinks in the skin immediately. I love this about it! It relieves the dryness
in an instant and leaves a light soothing film to the skin. It gives the skin a
subtle glow without making it oily. It breathable and not heavy.
I use it mainly on my skin during
the day if I feel that it needs moisture or in the evening as a night
moisturizer. In the morning the skin is well-hydrated and soothed. On the long
run it made my skin quite balanced. I noticed a smoothed texture and better
complexion. My makeup applied lovely and evenly without any dry spots. I`ve
tried it as a makeup base or mixing it with my foundation and the result was
great. The oil does not affect the performance of the product. I discovered
that for my oily skin 4 to 5 drops were enough for the face and and to put the
product on with patting motion. Then I wait about a minute or two to sink well
and apply my make up.
I was also happy with it`s quality
using the oil on my hands. During winter I suffer a lot of dry and painful skin
and the oil just gives me an instant relief. As it is incredibly lightweight,
my skin loved it and my hand just drank it! I also put right after I do the
dishes, so that I return the moisture in my hands. And It really helps with the
loss of moisture in my hands.
My body also suffers from dryness
during the winter months. I am not really comfortable with putting plain oil on
my body, so I mixed the multi oil with my body lotion and it worked wonders! It
boosted the lotions quality and my skin soft and silky for more than 24 hours.
Also there wasn`t the thick feeling from the lotion. It sink in the skin
completely and it felt really really comfortable and soothing.
I tried it also on my hair and it
was actually better performing that the oil that I am using now. As it is
lightweight it didn’t feel heavy on the hair and leaving with greasy strands.
My hair is naturally wavy to curly so it quite appreciated the added moisture.
It also provides the hair with extra shine and smoothness in the ends.
In addition, I would like to
comment how the product is super sparing and a little goes a long way. I used
it for a whole month, even gave some to my mother to test and STILL I have
managed to use only a fifth of the product. It`s just such a bargain! Definitely
a hit for me!
