Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner Review – Dry and sensitive skin


  In today’s post, I will be reviewing a very famous and loved product from the brand “Benton” and the product is the Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner. This toner is especially loved by Oily acne-prone skin people for its calming, hydrating & acne controlling property, but how did it work on my dry, sensitive, and acne-prone skin? I am going, to be honest, that along with excitement the nervousness was also hitting me big time. I do not use a lot of salicylic products, because too much BHA drys out my skin, but since this toner has only 0.5% of BHA I wanted to give it a try! Read along to know my experience…!

 

Packaging:

Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner comes in a sleek cylindrical bottle with a pump kind of dispenser. A very practical and simple packaging!

Consistency/ Texture / Absorbability:

Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner has a viscous yet quite lightweight texture for that bouncy viscosity. On application to the skin, it absorbs immediately leaving skin soft without stickiness.

How to use:

Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner is a daily toner.. but.. but… but.. usage gonna vary a little for each skin type.

  • Oily skin – use it day and night, daily, just in case your skin is sensitive along with being oily, then use it only at night.
  • Combination skin – Daily at night.
  • Normal & Dry skin – Use 2-3 times as a gentle BHA treatment product. This is what I did!

Use this toner after cleansing, on a clean dry face. It can be as a pat on toner or on a cotton puff, but I prefer and suggest the former way because of viscous consistency.

 

 

Skin Type suitability:

  • Oily Skin: A must-have for all seasons.
  •  Combination skin: must try for summer & monsoon, but during winter reduce the usage to weekly 2-3 times.
  •  Normal & Dry Skin: Use as a weekly 2-3 times BHA treatment in all seasons.

 

Pros:

  1. If I had any tiny zit or breakout, this toner calmed it.
  2. Also, added a glow to my skin.
  3. It helped in fading the minor red acne marks.
  4. It made by skin little soft a well.
  5. Fragrance-free.
  6. Essential oil- free.
  7. Alcohol-free.
  8. Cruelty Free.

 

Cons:

  • None… it’s perfect! Just make sure to use it correctly as per your skin type. Also, I do not have blackheads, so I cannot make any remark on the reduction of blackheads!

 

Conclusion:

I tried using it daily on my dry and sensitive skin, but it started drying my skin, so switched to weekly 2 times usage and it was working perfectly for me.

Overall, a fabulous product. It’s worth all the hype and a must-try for Oily and combination skin. If you have congestion and need a gentle product, definitively try out the Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner is a daily toner.
