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.

A bit thick
Sampled

I wasn't a fan of this moisturizer. I could feel it on my face long after I applied it. It just felt thick and unpleasant on my skin.

Gave it to a friend

I didn't like it. Felt thick on my skin and I didn't like how dull it made my skin look. I got a new pimple the next day, but cannot say that the product is necessarily to blame there. I have sensitive skin.

i don't know why a mattifying moisturizer would leave my face greasy but i was so unhappy with it.

no thanks

I don't know what was wrong with this stuff, but it did not absorb into my skin, so I would always have weird little balls of it coming off of my face.

Not my favorite

This is a good product, I received it in my birchbox. However, I do not like the smell of it. It does not have a bad smell, it just isn't for me. I also do not like how thick it is for a moisturizer.

This product may be fine to wear by itself, but it does not work well under makeup. I am a light makeup wearer; I usually wear either a tinted sunscreen, tinted moisturizer or bareminerals as a foundation, but i immediately noticed that anything i try to put on my face afterwards doesn't go on smoothly and that even the simple act of touching my face causes little balls of G-1 to form on my skin. I tried it a few different ways; i added the makeup after a few minutes of applying g-1, i tried using a smaller amount on my skin, and ended up mixing it with another moisturizer to make it less thick.

Don't like how it made my skin feel. It wasn't terrible though.

Came off easy

Felt nice going on at first, but as I continued to work it in the skin, it started coming off in little bits.

Bad for extreme acne
Sampled

I have problems with acne, & currently use a few prescription topical lotions to help my complexion. Using this product made my nose & t-zone peel underneath my makeup. The lotion & my foundation beaded up & flaked off.

Tried it, didn't like it

First of all, I love the sample sizes. I live out of a suitcase (flight attendant) so I take my Birchbox samples on the road and try them there.
I use Nuxe products (I am middle aged with sensitive skin) and am quite happy with that regimen.
