Holy. Fuuuuudge. Where do I begin this Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream review? My absolute fall and start worshipping at the altar of Korean Skincare Jesus products. This is what made me an absolute convert. I can’t remember where I first read about this cream, but I remember google taking me to a review from the (a fantastic read btw, check it out!). I had already placed an order by the time I got to the end of the page. Looking at the ingredients, some real eye-catchers sealed the deal for me.

Notice the lack of 20-letter additives.
You also see things like niacinamide, which is proven to help prevent your skin from losing water, help stimulate microcirculation, and help fight against breakouts and the hyper-pigmentation that can come as a result of it.
Now, let me say, before this, I had grown so disenchanted with skincare that I had become a cynic and was convinced that nothing could make a visible difference. I had a dull complexion, and my age was starting to show. I hated where my skin was heading and was already looking into starting injections. Although I was excited to try this cream, I didn’t have the highest hopes. When night rolled around, I told myself to have an open mind but not get my hopes up too high.
Well, all of that pessimism was slapped right off my face. Immediately I could tell this stuff was special. The cream went on like warm butter and coupled with the Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence, I saw an instant superficial change in my skin. It just feels so good when you use it.
It’s not heavy or greasy, but it somehow remains so hydrating and light! There’s a dewiness and firming feeling that I have noticed, and I’m not alone in that. My fellow converts have remarked upon it as well. Now, nothing on earth applied topically will get rid of deep wrinkles and sagging skin, but just the overall condition of your skin shows real and severe results with this duo.
Since I’ve started using the Benton line of products (Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence Review, Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner Review, Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel Review) my skin has a glow that it hasn’t had in years. I know that sounds like a cornball line from an infomercial, but I’m being completely honest and not embellishing at all. This stuff really works, and it works in complete harmony with each other.
If you need extra hydration and some occlusiveness, Benton Steam Cream, you can follow up with Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream.
I don’t even have to wear foundation or BB cream anymore if I don’t want to. That’s how much of a difference this has made for me. I can’t think of a single bad thing about the performance of this cream.
The cream comes in eco-friendly, brand-specific, easily recognizable cardboard packaging.
The cream is in a small, 1.76 oz, tube, the smallest of all the full-size products I previously reviewed. The cream is closed with a latch, and the applicator is a small hole through which you can squeeze it out. Before the first application, unscrew the lid and remove the protective foil that protects it. This is important with natural cosmetics, which usually have a shorter expiry date. Let’s not forget that Benton products are valid for six months from opening, so such factory protection gives us confidence that we get a fresh cream, not a spoiled one.
3 months in, it is difficult to tell how much I’ve used up. Considering that a pea amount is enough to cover my entire complexion, I assume it will last long, so don’t let its’ relatively small capacity fool you.
My overall rating
That being said, I still I want to award this duo a 6 out of 5 stars, like that guy’s amp in Spinal Tap that goes to 11. The Benton Snail Bee line gets my highest possible rating of 5 +1 just because I love it so much.
