BENTA BERRY G-1 Moisturizing Face Cream

The French all seem to have one thing in common: perfect skin. Maybe it’s in their genes, but we suspect their savvy skincare regimes deserve equal credit. Behold this moisturizer, which hasn’t been available stateside until now. It’s made with an all-natural blend of botanicals to leave skin smooth and matte.

Left a weird residue on my skin
Sampled

Of the few reviews I read I didn't happen to see anyone else that had this problem, but for some reason when I used this product it left a weird residue on my skin. I was using it under foundation, and when I'd put the foundation on it would not go on smoothly. At first I thought it was the foundation, but then I realized (after a couple of uses) that it was the moisturizer causing the problem. Once I switched back to my regular moisturizer I no longer had that problem.

Maybe a bad sample?
Sampled

I was pleased that the ingredients didn't include silicones, as I can't use them more than very infrequently and in small quantities on my face or hair (they cause little bumps under my skin/around the hairline).

I think I may have received a bad sample or something - the cream came out really, really thick, like glue that's been left to dry a while; and the fragrance (which seemed an odd inclusion for something marketing itself as more natural) was super intense. I didn't dare use the cream on my face, but I tried it on my hands - super hard to spread, and the fragrance was indeed too much even there.

I'd already complained to BB about a lipstick arriving damaged, or I would have questioned this stuff, too. Not a good month!

This product was not for my dry skin. I really wish Birchbox would match products more closely with my profile so that I will be able to try items better suited with my needs. Thank you!

not for dry skin

This product was not good for my dry skin. I really do not know why it was is my box as my profile clearly states I have dry skin. Please match items sent more carefully with our profile so we may actually get to try products that just may work for our needs and in return, purchase from your site. Thank you!

Sadly, not for me...
Sampled

When I received this product, I was really excited. However, my skin did not appreciate it. I used the whole sample to see if there was just an adjustment period, but I ended up with some breakouts and my skin felt very dry. I have very sensitive skin and its very particular too. I loved the smell of this though.

This is a nice, well-packaged product, but I really didn't like how it felt on my skin after it dried. I'll pass the rest of my sample on to a friend.

Not for me

I was excited to try this product, but felt like my skin just did not enjoy it. It did nothing for me, I felt dry and I was hoping for a flawless matte finish, but ended up having to use another moisturizer over it.

Sticky after applying
Sampled

I thought this product was a bit sticky after it dried. It does have this after effect where you just want to wash your face again. I don't think this would work well in a humid area. There is a hint scent that is quite refreshing.
