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…!
Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner comes in a sleek cylindrical bottle with a pump kind of dispenser. A very practical and simple packaging!
Expiry: Use within 6 months of opening the product.
Quantity: 200 ml
Price: Rs.1450 ( $19).

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.
Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis:
Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner has all good skin calming and hydrating ingredients and I love them all! Plus it’s Essential oil-free and fragrance-free.
- Has 80% Aloe leaf water to calm skin
- Contains 0.5% salicylic acid (BHA) to clean pores, reduce blackheads and general breakouts.
- For hydration, it contains “Sodium Hyaluronate” and “ Polyglutamic Acid”.
- Snail mucin filtrate – to brighten skin and heal the skin.
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.
- If I had any tiny zit or breakout, this toner calmed it.
- Also, added a glow to my skin.
- It helped in fading the minor red acne marks.
- It made by skin little soft a well.
- Essential oil- free.
- Cruelty Free.
- 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!
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.
