Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Cream Review

July 17, 2017 5 Comments

I was lucky enough to be selected to review Benton Cosmetics new Cacao Moist and Mild Cream recently.

It’s a light weight moisturiser that claims to be suitable for all skin types to use. Am I the only one who is always a little sceptical about the ‘suitable for all skin types’ claims on products?

I can only speak for my skin type, which has undergone a pretty radical change since around May. I have to point out that previous to the end of April my skin type was dry/sensitive and had been for many years.

I got very ill at that time and ended up being diagnosed with Giant Cell Arteritis (Horton’s Disease) and that meant I have had to go on quite a high dose of steroids. This has had such an effect on my skin. It’s now mostly normal/dry on my cheeks and pretty oily on my T-Zone. More breakouts and more closed comedones too.

The Cacao Moist and Mild Cream has been a good moisturiser for even my oilier skin. I haven’t experienced increased breakouts, nor has it made any difference to how oily my skin gets throughout the day. Honestly, if anything, I feel that my skin is more balanced when I use it.

It really is a lightweight cream and absorbs effortlessly into the skin. My skin feels nicely hydrated, soft and nourished after applying.  There is no scent is to it, so it would also be suitable for those that don’t like highly scented or perfumed moisturisers.

Ingredients

Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Water, Sorbitan Olivate,
1,2-Hexanediol, Pentylene Glycol, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Extract, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract,
Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polyglutamic Acid, Madecassoside, Beta-Glucan, Carbomer, Arginine, Xanthan Gum

This is definitely a moisturiser that I will reach for on a regular basis. I just really like how my skin feels after use. It boasts a list of ingredients that contain Cacao Extracts, Hyaluronic Acid and various botanical extracts too.

It claims to be slightly acid with a ph of around 6. So I tested the ph for myself, the results are shown below.

I put it between a ph of 5 and 6 by the results I got, though I think it leans more towards a ph of 5. You can decide for yourself though from the results.

 

Overall Thoughts on the Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Cream


Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Cream

The Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Cream is definitely a moisturiser I will reach for on a regular basis.

I’m not sure how it would perform during the winter but for the summer, the fact it is so lightweight yet hydrating is great.

With lots of fab beneficial ingredients, no colouring or fragrance, it makes a fantastic moisturiser for both morning and night-time.

  • Ad: PRgifted | I’ll be trying out these beautiful @lagomkorea products to see how they perform with regards to taking a full face of makeup off and how the sunscreen wears under makeup etc. ⭐️ Lagom Cellus Sun Gel Sun Screen SPF50+ PA+++
⭐️ Lagom Cellup Micro Foam Cleanser
⭐️ Lagom Cellup Gel to Water Cleanser

I’m eager to see how well the two cleansers do when it comes to removing makeup.  Especially how well they handle my eye makeup & mascara! 🤔

Have you tried any of these products or any other @lagomkorea products? 
Thank you to @skinsider_uk for sending these to me to try! .

  • Well, whilst the weather seems to still have forgotten it’s June, I can still add a bit of shimmer and sparkle to my life with these two So...? Shimmer Mists by @sofragrance which are exclusively available at @superdrug! 😍

They both smell soooo good and you get such a lovely shimmery glow to your skin too! 😍 
How’s your Wednesday been?  Has it been raining where you are? 😊

  • Have been in a lot of pain today and I don’t think this cold, wet weather is helping any. 🤦🏻‍♀️ At least June’s @roccaboxuk can brighten my day.  The @ted_baker Sweet Treats scent testers are gorgeous, I need to get all three!! 😍

Excited to try the @nipandfab sculpting stick too! 
I’ve tried the @urbanveda Reviving Exfoliating Polish before and it’s really nice. 👍

The beauty sponge from @unicorncosmetics feels so soft, so look forward to see how it performs. 😊

I’ll probably pass the @cetaphiluk moisturiser on to someone else. 
I’m also excited to try the @monuskincare skin perfector too! 
Have you tried any of these brands or products before? 😊

  • Sunday is my favourite day for pampering! I put on whatever TV show I’m currently binge watching, so I can just relax, put on a face mask, do my nails etc 😊

One of the reasons I love @latestinbeauty is being able to select 9 products each month - I subscribe to their Beauty Guru box But you can also have 6 or 3 products a month if you prefer. 
I get to try new brands & their products, or stock up on favourites! Each month they have a Hall of Fame product too. 
What do you do to pamper yourself? 😁 .

  • {PRGIFTED} Nails and lashes for the summer! No faffing around with nail polish, you can apply these gorgeous @impressmanicure nails and have a beautiful new mani in minutes!! They are by far THE best press-on nails I’ve ever tried. 😊👍 The lashes are from @kissproducts Lash Couture Naked Drama Collection and they are just incredibly easy to apply and wear! 
They will certainly add a splash of drama to your summer makeup looks! 😍

Both of these are  also among my essentials for summer this year. 🌞

What are some of your summer beauty essentials? .
