Review: Benton Snail Bee Ultimate Serum

Benton recently released their newest product, the Benton's Snail Bee Ultimate Serum which is a multitasking serum enriched with Saccharomyces/Snail Secretion Filtrate Ferment Filtrate, Bee Venom, and Tea Tree Leaf Water. This serum helps to nourish, soothe, and keep skin supple than ever.

 
I am blessed to be one of the few who received this for free in exchange of an honest review. Just in time because I just recently finished my previous serum.

PACKAGING - This product is beautifully contained in a dropper bottle that is easy to handle and the dropper enables hygienic use. The dropper itself isn't really hard to get and dispense product which is a thumbs up.


SCENT - There isn't any particular scent. I actually thought it was gearing towards coconut but it isn't. Totally mild to no scent at all.

PRICE - This is originally priced at 23USD in Style Korean but they recently had Benton's anniversary so it was on sale for only 7.77USD so I had some panic-buying the last minute. I already include it now in my routine. I need to stock because it was so good. Though a little goes a long way for this and I think my current bottle can still last me 2-3 months. 



EFFECT - This Snail Bee Ultimate Serum is made of Saccharomyces/Snail Secretion Filtrate Ferment Filtrate (70%) as a base. Saccharomyces/Snail Secretion Filtrate Ferment Filtrate is obtained by filtering fermented Snail Secretion Filtrate, which has been fermented by yeast derived from grapes. Bee venom in the serum helps to soothe blemishes. The serum is designed to protect skin and add suppleness to skin while helping to clear skin blemishes. Also, the Tea Tree Leaf Water and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water (green tea leaf water) relieve the skin stress and help with blemishes.
 
What I like about this is that the formula spreads and absorbs by the skin well. Only a tiny drop goes a long way. It also has natural healthy ingredients and it helps with whitening and anti-aging.

It is also suitable for all skin types. The dropper bottle enables hygienic use. It is also free of fragrance, volatile alcohol, and PEGs. It is mild on the skin, and has a slightly acidic pH of 5.5,which is similar to healthy skin’s pH.
 
Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Got it for FREE! Thanks Benton Cosmetic.
  • Gives instant hydration.
  • It has natural healthy ingredients.
  • It also has dual functionality, brightening and wrinkle care.
  • Small amount can cover broad skin area.
  • Absorbs well by the skin.
 
Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • For me, it would be a little expensive with the original price but it really does it job so I think splurging in this would still be great! (Just need to check on promos and sales once in a while)
 
Price: FREE
Bought from: Benton Cosmetics
Size: 35 ml.

To be honest, I'm not putting good words on this because I received it free, but I really am serious that this is one of the best serum I have tried. You can get yourself and be your own judge.

The Rant of a Skincare-holic

I am one of those people who are obsessed with skincare and to be honest, I do not know how to maintain this obsession because I keep on losing funds. HAHA. It isn't a joke. It is really expensive to invest in those products but I always feel that it's all worth it because I'm investing for my skin and it is for the long run. I prefer skincare over makeup products a. nd would definitely invest my time and money in it.
 
Since I can't keep up with all that's happening with the skincare world (my funds won't let me do so) , I then often join giveaways and such to somehow covered the expenses of buying the current skincare products release in  the market, that is if I'm given the chance to win.
 
 
It is just like needing to test out online casinos. You first test and gamble your time to discover if you are winning and if you do, more time and  energy will be used in joining  such  games. Just like what I do in those skincare giveaways. I also gamble my time and energy but there's no assurance if I will win in the end. Still, I take chances in gambling because it will somehow take me there, to those winnings I am yearning for.
 
I remember those days when I started betting my time in joining giveaway. I spent a lot of time in my day and I only got a little to nothing in return. But I still do it. Why? It is because I am still holding to the little percentage of winning and I like the joy I feel whenever I win.
 
So if you'll ask me if gambling is for me, then yes. I will gamble until I get what I want.

What Should You Look for in a Quality Pair of Ripped Jeans?



Sometime in the 90’s, grunge was born as the underground music movement that shaped a generation (TY Nirvana!). Little did people know that grunge was soon to have its very own look and inspire the fashion industry, becoming the uniform for cultured-cool with a hint of bad-ass angst in the mix. What are the telltale signs of grunge fashion? Aside from Kurt Cobain tees, big in the ‘too cool to care’ look was the distressed trend on denimwear.
 
Albeit an old fashion trend, distressed jeans have been immortalized as cool pants no matter what demographic they are worn by. Appropriate for casual and nightwear, these versatile bottoms are a must-have for any fashion girl!
 
Considering getting a pair for yourself? You’re in good hands, as we are going over the key markings of a quality pair of ripped jeans.
 
1. The right amount of distressed shredding
 
 
We have to give it to the style pioneer who decided a few shreds on jeans were cool to see on the streets. You can tell a good pair of ripped jeans apart from those that easily break at the seams (literally) from the amount of shredding done on the pantleg. Go for a pair that has shredding but has strong threads that won’t bore a hole during the first wash.

2. Loose fit in the calf area
 
 
Achieve ultimate cool-girl status by choosing ripper jeans that have just enough breathing room in the calf area. E! Online shares that ripped jeans won’t look any good if you're too short or too tall for the "regular" styles. Keeping an allowance around the calf area will allow your body to adjust and the ripped details will fall flatteringly on either your knee or lower thigh, for a cheeky flair on your jeans. 
 
3. Less holes, more panels
 
 
BNY Jeans advises that while huge rips and holes are certainly head-turners, this is very daring style, and is extremely hard to pull off. Instead of buying a pair of overly ripped jeans (and fall victim of looking like a hobo), settle on a pair that is still wearable and strikes the balance between edgy and high-fashion. 

4. Faded coloration


 Denim wash has always been a favorite undone statement for fashionistas across the globe. Make sure your ripped jeans have a denim wash coloration to stay true to real grunge fashion. Washed out jeans are also good canvases! Stitch Fix shares that light wash jeans can be a base for adding your favorite on-trend piece such as a designer buckle belt, iron-on patchwork, and more.
