Moisturizers play an important role in our daily skin regimen. They are essential whether we have dry or oily skin. And so, following my review of Snail Bee High Content Skin, I will introduce to you it’s partner in crime. I’m talking about SNAIL BEE HIGH CONTENT STEAM CREAM.
This product is Benton’s addition to their Snail Bee collection that works as a moisturizer; the perfect pair for their High Content Skin toner.
Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream is called steam cream because of the process it went through. This cream uses High-Temperature steam which is injected to the ingredients as they are mixed together to better facilitate the ingredients together.
Like all the products in this Snail Bee collection, this steam cream moisturizer champions two of its main ingredients which are the Snail secretion filtrate and Bee Venom.
Snail Secretion Filtrate – this is very known in the k-beauty line for its anti-aging effects. It also helps the skin heal in all the damages caused by over exposure to sunlight and other external causes. Snail filtrate also gives incomparable moisture to the skin. You can never go wrong over snail extracts!
Bee Venom – this ingredient is actually very effective in reviving our skin smoothness. Bee venom helps in resurfacing our skin and getting rid of unwanted bumps in the skin. They cause the skin to react in such a way it would think it was stung or damaged. With this, the skin would voluntarily produce collagen to even out the surface of the skin so as to “repair” such damages.
Like all the other products from this Snail Bee collection, This moisturizer is good for sensitive skin. It minimizes redness in the skin and helps in evening out skin tone with its whitening effect.
I love how this moisturizer works several wonders to my skin;
1) It moisturizes the skin evenly. By this, I am saying it actually knows how to give the skin enough moisture in accordance with your skin type. I have an oily skin and I love how this moisturizer (though in it’s thick cream type) didn’t over moisturize my skin. [over moisturizing can actually make my skin oily, as well as under moisturizing.] Thus I love how enough moisturizing effect this product gave me.
2) Its whitening effect is also worth the rave. The whitening effect actually meant that it evens out skin tone that gets rid of unwanted pigmentation in the skin. I’ve seen this effect myself since I have this weird spot in my cheeks and surprisingly after a while of using this moisturizer it faded and I’m looking forward to seeing this spot totally disappear!
Though this might say “whitening” if you are looking for a total whitening product, I don’t think relying solely on this collection would be a good choice. *winkwink
I believe this product works best with the Snail Bee High Content Skin. These two actually helps each other work their way to your skin’s health. The High Content Skin prepares your skin in a way that it would be ready to take in the nutrients of the Steam Cream in its maximum. Use this after applying Snail Bee High Content Skin.
Also, you would only need a little amount to cover your whole face and neck because of its very thick texture. Just dispense a little product to your hands and spread it evenly on both of your palms. Then slowly pat the product into your skin making sure the product transfers from your palms to your face.
Upon application, this product actually feels a little warm and heavy on the skin. Let in sit and absorb for a while and you’ll see a warm feeling subsides and your skin would feel healthier and moisturized.
Some first-time users might find this a little uncomfortable. This is because of its cream texture. However, once you realize that this product is a miracle worker, you’ll start to love it.
Additional tip: I love to bring this from time to time when I step out and use it as a hand cream. It is as lovely to the hands as it is to the face.
Like the rest of the products in the Snail Bee collection, this Steam Cream comes in a recycled cardboard box which really looks organic to my eyes. As Compared to how it was in a jar last few years, this time they changed the packaging to a 50g tube which is more convenient. I think this is more convenient and not to mention hygienic. Still, the colors stay as natural and organic looking in it’s brown/bronze tube and white prints.
Apart from the weird thick feeling upon application, I don’t really have a problem with it. I recommend this to everyone who has been looking for the best snail filtrate-based moisturizer in the market. This product goes a step higher than any other snail secretion-based products because of its fusion with bee venom. Benton’s Snail bee products are sure a must try and a must inclusion to your daily skincare regimen!
