Intensive anti-ageing skincare routine has prompted me to pay closer attention to my sun protection habits.  I have been making a conscious efforts to ensure I always apply sunscreen prior to sun exposure and more importantly to remember to re-apply.  I wouldn’t want to reverse all the goodness that I have managed to put back into my skin with my strict regime.  A new addition to my daily routine for the last 2 months is Benton Papaya-S Sun Cream.

Benton is a brand that I have come to love after trying a few simple yet effective products from them.  The company is known to use fresh, natural ingredients in small batches to restore skin to its original, healthy condition.  Quietly, I had high hopes for Papaya-S Sun Cream!

Benton has two sun creams in their range, Papaya-D SPF35 and Papaya-S SPF50.  I was drawn to the skin benefits from Benton Papaya sun creams, in particular Papaya-S due to its high protection.

What is Benton Papaya-S SPF50/PA ++++?

A physical and chemical sun cream with the highest factor available in South Korea.

It is water and sweat resistant.  It has a light scent of geranium (which doesn’t bother or irritate me)

The ingredients

The texture

Benton Papaya-S Sun Cream is a water-in-oil emulsion.  The texture feels creamy and smooth.  Upon application, there is a slight white cast on my medium skin tone but once absorbed it’s totally disappeared.  The product contains sunflower seed oil and shea butter, allowing your skin to feel nourished and hydrated yet in a non-greasy way.

Benton Papaya-S Cream layer well with my usual day moisturisers and my face primers.  I haven’t experienced any pilling up.  My makeup goes on beautifully.  Although my skin tends to be on the oily side, the sun cream doesn’t feel heavy on.  You could adjust your serums and moisturisers if you feel the need for less hydration.

As the name suggests,  I think Benton Papaya-S Sun Cream would be perfect for outdoor sport activities…think holiday time…beach, sun, sand and sea.  The high protection, water resistance and the ability to vitalise your skin all in one!

Skin care benefits

With the inclusion of papaya extract, sunflower seed oil, shea butter and niacinamide, your skin is nourished, exfoliated and brightened at the same time.  This is such a convenient and nifty way of adding some goodness to your skin, especially sun cream is something you would wear daily.

Final thoughts

Benton Papaya- S Sun Cream is a perfect sun protection choice for someone who is looking for the highest sun protection with skincare benefits.  If you have dry to normal skin type, you would absolutely love the hydration it offers.
