|BeneFit Dear John||
BeneFit Dear John is produced by BeneFit Cosmetics, which is one of more than fifty high-end brands owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennesse.
One of the things that might draw you to BeneFit Dear John is that is often touted as a lustrous face cream that adds moisture to your skin. It may be used at night or day in order to replenish your skin, to smooth out wrinkles and to make sure that you are not prone to blemishes. Just being voted the best face cream by Elle magazine in 2006 makes it worth of curiosity, so make sure that you consider what you are looking at.
What active ingredients might you find in BeneFit Dear John? They are all intended to hydrate and strengthen your skin, so what are they? One ingredient is sodium hyluronate, which is much like the substance found in our joints, and another ingredient is Vitamin E, which is a great healer of skin and can help reduce inflammation. These are basic ingredients to see in any skin care product, though marshmallow root, which is another ingredient, is not. Marshmallow root is said to increase the dermal structure of the skin while letting you resist aging. There is no complete list of ingredients for BeneFit Dear John. The retail price of 32 dollars for a 2 ounce jar might be interesting to the consumer if only because it is less expensive than other products and less than what you might expect to pay for luxury skin care item.
When you are looking around at reviews on places like the Sephora or Macy websites, you’ll find that it does get fairly positive reviews, but do keep an eye out for the bad ones, that talk about break outs after following the daily use recommended.
- BeneFit Dear John was voted “Best Face Cream” by Elle in 2006.
- It is less expensive than competitors at $32 for 2 ounces.
- Many positive reviews.
- Definitely not for everyone.
- No SPF protection from sunburn.
- Not all ingredients listed on the website.
- No evident clinical testing results to be found.
- BeneFit Dear John is an older product and has not benefited from the many advances that the newer wrinkle fighting creams have.
The Bottom Line
Marshmallow root, as far as can be determined, is one of the only things that makes this product stand out. Keeping in mind that marshmallow root can be easily found at any supplement store, the only thing that really recommends this product is its price. Make sure that you consider what your skin needs. While it does have a very positive review from Elle magazine, remember that that was a number of years ago, and that there are now certainly more cutting edge products on the market. This may be a nice addition to your general regimen, but be aware that there are certainly other options out there that may serve you equally as well or better.
