CLAIM : lightweight texture, moist finish, suitable for summer, water-oil balance, mild formula.ABOUT : light white gel with faint to none scent, texture is gel quickly turned watery when spread and pat in, absorbs quicklyPACKAGING : 50g in soft pink tube, very cute, a bit different from the usual Benton design, i really like tube packaging in generalKEY INGREDINT : Theobrome cacao extract (63%), theobroma cacao seed butter (10%)Also contain madecassoside and betaglucanTHOUGHT : 1. I'm very pleased with the initial application, give a little bit of dewy finish on skin2. However for my dry skin, i did feels dry after a few hours, so this cream need reapplication a few times a day3. It did feels moist and moisturized, but it's not last longer3. Apply in 2/3 light layers makes better finish than one big gulp of cream, also less shine and moisturized longer4. Adding oil to this cream also helps5. I really liked using this cream in morning/noon after i popped it in fridge for a few minutes, very cooling and refreshing7. It play well with sunscreen, however a powder may be need when using dewy sunscreen/foundation, because this cream will add a bit to the shine8. Overall, yes, i do agreed to the claim made, but for me, this cream alone is not enough on it's own, or on one application to last all day even in summer9. I think this will be good for oily skin
PRO : ✔lightweight ✔absorbs quickly ✔moist finish ✔feels cooling ✔not fragranced ✔good for summer/hot weatherCONS : ✖the moisture not last long ✖not enough on it's own ✖need reapplication .
Although I have very dry skin I do not use rich, thick Creams because I get almost everytime a bad Breakout . That's why I was very excited about the Cocao Moist and Mild Cream . I incorporated it in my Am and Pm Routine in order to be able to judge better how I like it.
🎀I expected this Cream to smell sweet and strong. This is not the Case at all. It has a very light scent of fresh cocoa beans (if you have smelled that before). Sensitive Noses should have no Problem with it.
🎀The consistency is more gel-like and light weight. A pea-sized is enough for my Face . This naturally derived mild Cream spreads well and absorbs quickly.
🎀It is totally surprising how well this cream moisturizes my Skin. I like it best in my Pm Routine with a Firming Serum underneath. The next morning, my Skin looks and feels Healthy and well moisturized. Thanks to the Cacoa extract I have a dewy glow. Moreover, it is super soft. Overall it is a wonderful Cream for Summer (and also Winter, I think)
