Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence 14 day Update

Hi everyone. This is my last Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence update. It is a little late but I blame the holidays. I used the Benton Snail Bee Essence daily morning and evening along with my Clinique Gentle Face Wash, and my Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer. I have since added more steps to my skincare routine but at the time I took these photos (the 14 day mark) I had not added any other products. Here are the before and after photos (Note: I have two before and after photos of the left side of my face because I couldn’t fit them all into one collage – laughing). 

If I had to describe the effects on my face in one word I would have to say amazing. The pustules (that’s a horrible word) are gone, the redness and hyperpigmentation has decreased and I have not experienced any new rosacea symptoms. I am actually shocked that in only 14 days my skin looks so much better. Skin cells totally regenerate (i.e., new skin all over the face) in 28 days and I can only imagine that my skin will continue to improve (I do have a few areas of hyperpigmentation still). I 100% recommend this to anyone looking for something that is not only safe to use with sensitive skin but gives you results. 

I am blown away and I have to say that this is going onto my (very small) list of Holy Grail skincare products. There is one problem with this product – it’s from Korea. Since this is a Korean product and can be a little tricky to find, I’m going to link you to a few websites I trust. You can always try Amazon or EBay but there are a ton of counterfeit Korean beauty products and unethical sellers on both sites. These are tried and true and you’re going to be getting the product you order. 

The first is Memebox which is where I personally purchased the product. Here is a direct link to the Essence. 

TesterKorea is another website that I have ordered from. It can be a little scary because the prices are in won but the conversion is listed at the top right (usually around 1 American dollar to 1000 won). 

Beauteque is another good option. They ship from the US but the product is a few dollars more.

Benton has an entire line of products associated with their Snail Bee High Content line. If you would like a chance to win the Benton High Content Steam Cream check out my giveaway Korean Beauty Blog Hop Giveway (which is also part of a large Korean beauty giveaway). Have a happy New Year everyone! Here’s to a great 2015!


  1. sad and oily sensitive acne prone skin is what makes me want to win so bad!!!! Then I can hopefully address the scarring!

  2. Thank you so much for posting this! I'm a K-skincare newbie and have been searching for a good cream to try. This one looks promising! I'm doing this right away! ^_^
