20180414_175307-01-01

Hi everyone. In this post I’ll be reviewing one of Benton (YEAH AGAIN) latest product, Cacao Moist and Mild Serum. This serum functioning as a hydrating serum, it’d be suitable for those who have dry skin with poor oil water balance.

Now let’s talk about this serum’s physical form
Packaging

This serum comes with a plastic bottle, with a dropper as their applicator. The serum is so freaking small like it fit on my hands. It comes with a clear plastic form so we can see clearly what’s inside this serum.

I find the dropper a little bit annoying because it’s hard to squeeze the serum, a bit stiff in my opinion.

With the clear plastic bottle and pink label “Cacao Moist and Mild Serum” makes this serum looks beautiful and simple.
Texture

As I use the dropper to test the serum on my hand, it feels like a gel to me, a very lightweight serum and as they claim on their packaging, I find this serum hydrate my skin. It absorbs fast and doesn’t leave any sticky texture.

It doesn’t have any fragrance, so it would be suitable for those who have sensitive skin.

On the very first day I received this package, I immediately used this serum on my skin before applying make-up. The result is OMG. I loved how this serum moisturized my dull skin, and make my makeup better too. The serum is very lightweight serum, so in my opinion it’ll be perfect for those who live in four season country.

I’D RECOMMEND THIS SERUM TO,

EVERYONE! although I have oily skin type but i also need hydrating serum like this. it moisturize my skin once I applied this serum. you guys who have dry skin type will love this serum!

Final thought:
Things I like:

  • a very light weight serum
  • Absorbs fast
  • Non sticky texture
  • Moisture my skin

Things I don’t like

  • The dropper, I find it too hard to squeeze.

Disclaimer: Benton did send the product to me for review purpose but the review is honestly my opinion.
