The story behind the brand name is quite surprising- it’s inspired by the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” in which Benjamin, the main character, grows younger with time. Benton wants to help you hit reset and return your skin to a healthy, youthful condition just as Benjamin grew younger in the movie. Benton’s aim is to ultimately achieve a youthful, glowing complexion through the use of clean, healthy products as opposed to harsh, harmful beauty treatments. An interesting fact is that 

Benton was first established in 2011 and their first launch and product release was the Snail Bee High Content Essence & Mask Pack. Currently, they have branched out internationally & still continue to grow all over the world!

A big reason why we love Benton so much is their emphasis on formulating high-quality ingredients that are skin-friendly, placing a lot of importance of soothing ingredients and products that are suitable for all skin-types. Another reason being that although Benton has always used natural preservatives rather than chemical, since 2016 they have been using Ecocert certified natural preservatives. This means they are effective, sustainably produced, and comfortable on the skin as well as internationally accredited! Additionally, Benton do not mass produce their cosmetics, although of course mass production would cheaper. But no, they want their products to be freshly made and of the best quality and thus sticking with smaller production batches. Lastly, Benton products are entirely cruelty free and are even PETA certified so we don’t have to worry about our furry friends being harmed 🐰💜. More so, Benton also has a range of Vegan certified products which can be shopped here.

Luxe Loft’s Top 5 Benton Products:

1. Fermentation Eye Cream:

This eye cream brings fermented ingredients and anti-aging superstars together to keep your eye area hydrated and soft. Bifida ferment lysate and galactomyces ferment filtrate, fermented ingredients well-known in Korean skin care, help repair skin damage, while ceramides, hyaluronic acid, aloe, and panthenol deeply hydrate skin. Also included in the formula are beta-glucans and adenosine to plump and smooth the eye area for brighter, more younger-looking eyes. To use after cleansing, toner, essence and before moisturiser, we recommend gently squeezing the tube to get product on your fingertip and then patting the product lightly around the eye area.

2. Snail Bee Ultimate Hydrogel Eye Patch:

Give your eyes the ultimate luxury treatment at home with this hydrogel eye patch embedded with gold, pearl, diamond, and charcoal powders to firm, purify, and revitalise skin! The multitasking eye patch brightens the skin around your eyes and prevents wrinkles, and thanks to the seaweeds infused in it, it absorbs thoroughly into the skin. The star ingredient in the hydrogel patch is premium essence of snail secretion ferment filtrate packed with bee venom, tea tree leaf water, and seaweed extracts, which all reinforce protection of the skin while soothing, cooling, preventing blemishes, and repairing uneven skin tone.  This product is perfect for all skin types and is free of fragrance and artificial colours. To use after cleansing and toning, use the included applicator to take out two eye patches and apply one to the under area of each eye. Leave on for 10-20 minutes, and softly pat in leftover essence to absorb into skin after removal. For best results in warm weather, store the product in a refrigerator. Ensure the cap is tightly screwed on before and after use so the product does not dry out. These eye patches can also be used on other areas that need nourishing, brightening or anti-aging such as the neck and forehead.
