Update on Benton Fermentation Eye Cream & Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream & Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream
I decided to remove some more products from my life. 🙃 I mean, skin care routine. This time, they’re not face skin care products. They’re eye creams. They are Benton Fermentation Eye Cream, Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream, and Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream. I’ve talked about these eye creams before. It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned them. Here they are again and my updated thoughts on each one. Let’s begin with the Benton Fermentation Eye Cream!
Benton Fermentation Eye Cream:
One of the eye creams that I was madly in love with was the Benton Fermentation Eye Cream. I loved the texture and consistency of the eye cream. It’s thick and creamy. It moisturized my eye area (doesn’t dry it out). This was one of the eye creams that I couldn’t let go. The ingredients were nice too. It had Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Macadamia Seed Oil, Ceramide Np, Sodium Hyaluronate, Aloe Leaf Extract, Adenosin, Panthenol, and so much more. Seemed beneficial for the skin so I kept on using it. So what’s the purpose of this eye cream?? It’s supposed to help with wrinkles, intensive firming, and moisturize the skin around the eyes for a brighter and more youthful look. After going through several tubes of this eye cream, the only thing this eye cream did for me was moisturize my eye area. I haven’t noticed any results with wrinkles, intensive firming, brighter eyes, or a more youthful look. So it just leaves the eye area moisturized. The ingredients and texture of the product seems really good, but I just didn’t see any changes other than moisturizing. Also, even though I love the thickness and creaminess of the eye cream, it was a little difficult to spread the eye cream under the eye area. It doesn’t smooth out easily, which made application more difficult than it should be. That means more pulling and tugging at the under eyes. That’s a huge no for me. I stopped using this eye cream for those reasons. All it did was moisturize and it was too difficult to blend into the skin. Where were the results? lol. I’m over this eye cream. Moving on…
Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream:
Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream was one of those products that I kept using just because. It’s also affordable, so it was pretty easy to get hooked on it, lol. So the product claims to be an anti-aging eye cream that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. In turn, makes the eyes look younger. The ingredient list is very long, so here’s a quick snapshot of what’s in it: Centella Asiatica Extract, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Shea Butter, Peptides, Madecassic Acid, Macadamia Seed Oil, Green Tea Extract. There’s more to it, but it’s just way too long. The ingredients look good. I’ve also gone through several tubes of this eye cream as well. My experience using this eye cream was OK. It didn’t irritate my eyes. It was soothing. But it didn’t help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as advertised. It also didn’t help make my eyes look more youthful either. What it did was moisturize my eyes (when first applied to the skin). The moisture from this eye cream didn’t last. It sunk into the skin and disappeared. I did like the fact that this eye cream absorbs very quickly. It just vanishes into the skin without any issues. Since the moisture is temporary, it did absolutely nothing. It’s a useless eye cream that I’m purging from my skin care routine. See ya! 👋🏻
Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream:
I purchased this eye cream on a whim. I didn’t think much about it. I was using the Snail Essence around that time too and thought this eye cream would do something for my eyes. Here are my thoughts on Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream! The purpose of this eye cream is to firm the skin, boost radiance, reduce dark under eye circles, treat dull and dehydrated skin, fine lines, and puffy under eyes. The eye cream contains Snail Secretion Filtrate, Sunflower Seed Oil, Niacinamide, Palmitic Acid, Arginine, Betaine, Allantoin, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine, Peptides, and so many more ingredients! My experience with this eye cream has been OK. Well, only when it comes to moisture. The eye cream is sticky and actually does moisturize the eye area. Must be the snail filtrate secretion! 🐌 But that’s all I noticed about this eye cream. It didn’t help firm my skin, boost radiance, or even reduce dark under eye circles. If it helped with my dark under eye circles, I would’ve noticed by now. I’m on my 3rd bottle. Will be moving on to my 4th (last) bottle soon! It didn’t help with fine lines and wrinkles either. No to the puffy eyes and dull skin. All it did was just moisturize my skin. That’s it. This eye cream is on the pricier side, so I won’t repurchase just for an eye cream that moisturizes. I need an eye cream that actually delivers. This didn’t deliver entirely. My face moisturizer does the same thing as this eye cream (moisturize) and is more affordable.
Which eye cream is more moisturizing? In my opinion…
- Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream
- Benton Fermentation Eye Cream
- Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream

Update on Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum & The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%!!
It’s decided. I stopped using Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum and The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%. I’m really trying to eliminate skin care products that don’t provide my skin with many benefits and are oily. The two products in my routine — Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum and The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid fell into those categories. Here’s why.
Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum:
I’ve gone through several bottles of Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum. I still have a few more of the serum, lol. This serum is a lightweight watery gel that absorbs into the skin well. It doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky or heavy. It just sinks into the skin wonderfully. I never had any issues with the serum. That’s why I’ve used it for so long. This serum contains 49% Centella Asiatica Extract, Niacinamide, Arginine, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Green Tea Extract, Ceramide NP, Sodium Hyaluronate, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid. At the end of the ingredient list, some peptides. The ingredients look amazing. Also, it didn’t clog my pores either. It worked very well on my acne-prone skin. Not a single zit in sight. I was able to use it twice a day without any issues. It helped to calm redness and irritated skin while providing lightweight hydration. Unfortunately, the hydration doesn’t last long so don’t expect a surge of moisture from this serum. It’s a great serum for sensitive skin! BUT, even if the serum has really nice ingredients, I didn’t see much of a change or a huge difference in my skin. It didn’t help to improve skin texture and blemishes like it claims. It’s a pretty basic product that I don’t need, since I have a better moisturizer already. I was using the Purito Buffet Serum because it at least hydrates the skin just a little bit. Maybe I’ll use it again in the near future, but for now, I’m going to stop using it and see what happens.
The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%:
I’ve been eliminating The Ordinary products one by one. The last two were The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10% and The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2%. The next one is going to be The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%. I really wanted this serum to work. It’s supposed to help with signs of aging and skin texture. It contains antioxidants. But I’ve been trying to make this serum work for months to no avail. The serum feels very oily and greasy on the skin. The texture of this serum is very similar to the Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2%. One of the reasons why I stopped using the Ascorbic Acid serum. After I stopped using both Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2% and Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%, my skin stopped looking oily and greasy. These serums could’ve been breaking me out too. It just makes my skin appear more shiny and feels heavy on the skin. For me, the overall formulation of the serum is poor. It sits on top of the skin and doesn’t really absorb into the skin. As for the results when using this serum, since the texture of the serum is oily, it moisturizes the skin and makes the skin look kind of glowy. That’s most likely due to the oiliness of the serum and not that it contains antioxidants. The Ascorbic Acid serums has the same effect on the skin too due to the oiliness. Once I wash my face at the end of the day, I could see very little changes in my skin. I find it only moisturizing. I’ve been using this serum for months. I think it’s been nearly a year, and I don’t think it’s working for me. I was expecting more from this product.
