About the product
The Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Serum is a multi-purpose serum that’s ideal for dull, dry, sensitive and oily skin. This serum replenishes the skin with missing nutrients, hydrates, and balances out the skins water-oil levels. One of the cool things that this serum does is create a barrier for your skin that prevents it from losing moisture and nutrients, and also prevents pollution from entering your pores. This product is intended to be very light and is ideal for all seasons. If you’re looking for a serum that’s light, fragrance free and full of natural ingredients, look no further!
This product comes in a plastic bottle so it’s safe for travel! The packaging is very simple and contains really useful information about the ingredients in both English and Korean.

How I used it
I applied 2-3 drops on my face after double cleansing, toning and essence. After it absorbed (it only took about 30 seconds) i continued with the rest of my routine. I used this product both in the morning and at night.
This product is extremely light and it absorbs very well, which is something that I always look for in a serum. This product does not leave behind any sticky residue, it goes on matte and it does not feel like you’re wearing anything. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the serum’s consistency.
I used this product for 3 weeks, and let me say that I noticed a huge difference after only using it for 3 days. My skin felt amazing after the first few uses. This serum helped my skin feel more supple and moisturized. My skin felt and looked visibly smoother and healthier after 1 week of use and it’s been feeling consistently amazing with continued use. Even though I’m not prone to breakouts, I haven’t even experienced any stray pimples since using this product. I also haven’t experienced any tightness in my skin, despite how frequently the weather has been changing.
I really can’t stress enough how well this product absorbs, I’m all about layering products so I found that I could use my normal amount of products without feeling clogged or appearing overly shiny. I found that this product works very well with sleep packs. I use the E Nature Birch Juice Hydro Sleeping Pack and my skin felt 100 times better than usual when I woke up. Also, this product really does work in all seasons. I’ve experienced all types of weather in the past few weeks and this product has held strong the entire time.
I give this product a 5/5 and I highly recommend this product to anyone that wants to give their skin a little extra boost of hydration and nutrients. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s super light, it works in all seasons and it’s ideal for all skin types. Definitely give this product a shot if you’re on the market for a serum! You can buy this serum from the Benton website here for $13.60!
