Aaaaaaand I’m back to reviewing after 4 months of absence. Been going through very difficult stuff lately and going back to my old routine and to trying out new stuff to review helps with the moving on process.
So here we go! I’ve had this review of the Benton Fermentation Eye Cream stored in my drafts for quite some time already and it’s only now that I’ve gotten around to publishing it (sorry✌️). I purchased this eye cream from a seller, RR Korean Shop and was really excited to try it because of the rave reviews I’ve seen and I loooove products with galactomyces so of course I had to try this.
According to the Benton website, this cream is supposed to help with and is suitable for
- Sensitive and dry skin
- Wrinkle-free and elastic skin
- Dull and radiant skin
- Dry, quick-drying skin with a pull
- Unbalanced water balance
- Harmful chemical-sensitive skin
All components include
fermentation filtrate of galactomes, bifidobacteriaceae, butylene glycol, caprylic / capric triglyceride, glycerin, Cetearyl alcohol, cetyl hexyl hexanoate, purified water, macadamia seed oil, cetearyl olivate, sorbitan olivate, Pentaerythritol, pentaerythritol, pentaerythritol, pentyleneglycol, S-oligopeptide-1, ceramide, Adenosine, allantoin, safflower root extract, betaine, panthenol, beta-glucan, acrylate / C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, Arginine, chestnut fruit extract, wilt, chestnut extract, sorbitan stearate

I don’t know all of the ingredients but I see some of my favorites —
- galactomyces – great anti-aging ingredient
- bifida ferment – revitalizes and hydrates skin
- adenosine – anti-wrinkle
- arginine – detoxes your skin
- ceramide – helps with anti-aging because they repair and protect your skin’s moisture barrier
- and other natural ingredients like aloe and macadamia that are known for their wonderful skin benefits.
It comes in a sleek 30g black plastic tube with a silver cap and matching white/silver text printed on it.
The pointed tip dispenses just the right amount of eye cream although you might have to squeeze it a bit harder because the cream is a bit thick.
The cream, as mentioned, has a slightly thicker consistency than what I’m used to but I don’t mind. It has no scent so that’s good news to those sensitive to fragrances.
Once you spread it out, you’ll find that it spreads quite easily and isn’t sticky at all. It also absorbs pretty quickly. Just remember to use enough because there was one time I applied to much during one of my morning routines and it took a while before it got absorbed.
I used this cream twice a day for about 2 months and I was pretty happy with the results. The skin around my eyes is more plump and I have fewer fine lines. Whenever I apply this (right amount of course), I can see the difference with how the concealer and makeup sits on my skin. It applies more smoothly and the skin looks more hydrated.
I did not see drastic brightening BUT there was some brightening. Sorry about the July photo — the lighting is not the same but it was all I could find. The June photo though did show that it’s a shade lighter. My husband would always comment about how much brighter it was though. I guess it’s not so obvious in photos. He liked the results he saw to the point that he kidnapped my tube and put it on his side and everyday, I would have to get it from him. I had to decant some for him just so I’d stop asking for it!
Would I repurchase? Yes I would. In my opinion, 2 months is not enough time to see long term results specially when it concerns anti-aging. I’m currently trying out a different eye cream now but would gladly go back to this because it’s priced reasonably and the results are there. You just need to give it time — after all, it’s still all about prevention.
Have you tried this eye cream? What’s your holy grail eye cream? Let me know! 😊
