🌸 Here comes the third product from the Cacao line! @Bentoncosmetic has just released this a while after the cacao serum - the Cacao Moist and Mild Toner.
This is their take on a post-cleanse hydrator, made free of skin-irritating fragrance and volatile alcohol.
If you know me, I dislike alcohol on skincare, but most especially on toners. As even if it has a refreshing effect on the skin, it tends to evaporate the skin's moisture with it, which actually causes dehydration, so not really helping it.
This is said to be the perfect toner in protecting the skin from losing moisture at its most vulnerable state, after 2nd cleansing.
Like the cream and the serum, this is also mainly composed of the #Cacao extract, seed extract and flower extract, plus packed with #HyaluronicAcid ! All hydration and nourishing goodness in its 150ml blush-packaged bottle.
It is of watery consistency, making it lightweight, and easily absorbed by the skin with no stickiness.
I have tried this in all Korean 'skin methods', AM, and PM routines - #3skin, #5skin, and #7skin, and it layers well on all but actually had provided me with the same intact hydration, and a subtle glow. So, basically, it didn't need too many layers to work.
Also I'm of really oily, sensitive skin, currently in a late summer-to-rainy season and this works well in balancing my skin's oil production, and in lessening dullness, despite the drastic weather changes in Manila, so it will also be suitable for any season.
I have used this with my regular skincare routines and it embraced the other products beautifully. I did however broken out on the 3rd day, but after isolation, found out that this wasn't the cause of it.
Tried it with the Cacao serum, and the cream as well, which I decanted from all the samples Benton has given me [haha, but I also did buy myself a full-size because I loved its gel cream texture], and I can say that the Cacao routine is on point in providing skin's basic needs - hydration and nourishment.
💕 I am extremely thankful of Benton, in their trust of my honest opinions for four of their products now [I'll understand if this is the last. No, jk. But yes it's okay 😅]. And their company's ethics in which they provide superb review process: easy delivery, door-to door, review guide, sufficient timeframe and of course, beautiful products. But most especially, fair opportunity for everyone, regardless of follower numbers. I raise my glass to you guys there! Thank you once again 🍷!
