Review: Benton Snail Bee High Content Skin

11. June 2014


As I promised in my review on Benton’s Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream I will show you the Benton Snail Bee High Content Skin, a complimentary toner for the Benton Snail Bee High Content skincare line. There is another toner available, called Aloe BHA Skin Toner, which was released previously, but recently the Snail Bee High Content Skin was added to the Benton range. After my skin reaction with the steam cream I thought that it might be some problem or co-reaction with my other skincare products, so I decided to try the steam cream together with this toner.


The Korean skincare brand Benton did unleash a noticable raving amongst lots of bloggers. Especially the high quality of the ingredients, without any additional fragnances or other fillers did impress most people. Also, the key ingredient being snail secretion filtrate in first place and adding bee venom on top made it widely appalling for skincare junkies. It’s no news, when I say that especially snail secretaion filtrate products were the most wanted ingredient last year. I also did try samples from the one or other brand and I also reviewed Mizon’s Snail Secration Gel Cream. When I heard about the new brand Benton and their Snail Bee High Content skincare line I knew that I had to try the products.


All Benton products have a simple cardbox packaging of recycled paper. The description is provided in English and in Korean. The ingredients are natural and the toner doesn’t contain any fragnances. according to COSDNA the ingredients all green flaged. Here is the list:

Snail Secretion Filtrate, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Human Ogliopeptide-1, Bee Venom, Diospyros Kaki Leaf Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Plantago Asiatica Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Ulmus Campetris (Elm) Extract, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Athaea Rosea Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Betaine, Bacillus Ferment, Panthenol, Beta-Glucan, Allantoin, Azelaic Acid, Adenosine



The Benton Snail Bee High Content Skin comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. The color of the bottle is a brown plastic and you can see the level of product inside. The writings on the bottle contain part of the descriptions of the cardbox packaging, but after some weeks and also travelling with the bottle, the writing dissapears slowly. The pump dispenser is protected by a clear plastic cap.


The toner is easy to use. you need around 2-3 pumps for your face. The texture of the toner is liquid and watery, similar to water and not like one would imagine snail filtrate to be. It has no scent at all.


All in all, I can say that this toner is a good toner considering the ingredients. It is very natural and scent free, which can be to a lot of people’s liking. I didn’t see any improvements to my skin condition, but I must sa, that I also had the skin reaction because of the Benton Steam Cream. The packaging is at least more hygienic than the one of the latter. If you are a fan of Bentons Snail Bee High Content skincare line, you might want to try this out. If you belong to those people whose skin cannot use the Benton line (like me) than you should skip this product though.

I bought my bottle containing 150 ml from  W2Beauty for 18 US$.

      You should try some samples, perhaps your skin doesn’t have the problem like I did. And since a lot of people like the Benton line, it is worth a try :) thanks for commenting ♥

    so it is not particularly moisturizing?

    • Frl. Schnee 24. June 2014 at 10:21

      Yes, it does give some moisture, but the hyaloronic acid cobntaing toners are more moisturizing than this one… Thanks for commenting ♥

    This product causes me a big breakout on my skin after apply, I used 2 samples and after that a week after the breakout was terrible, that was some months ago. And I think well this product doesn´t match with my oily sensitive skin.

      Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for me either. Luckily you only tried samples and didn’t buy the fullsize product. thanks for commenting ♥

    i’m seeing lots of benton products lately, but i’ll pass with products with snail for now

      For some people the Benton line really works wonders. I was not lucky unfortunately, so I’ll skip the line for now . Thanks for commenting ♥
