ALOE VERA SOOTHING GEL

NATURE REPUBLIC SOOTHING AND MOISTURE (92%) ALOE VERA GEL 

This review was kindly requested by Gup Thongphao, you should check out her blog too!

My sister purchased this 'Nature Republic Soothing and Moisture Aloe Vera Gel' for me, in Korea. I decided to purchase this as I have oily skin and gel moisturizers are good for oily skin. 

Although you can purchase it here aswell:

NATURE REPUBLIC ALOE SOOTHING GEL PACKAGING

Gel moisturizers are water based so it gives the skin instant hydration. Whereas cream based moisturizers are not and can sometimes give an oily or greasy finish; also a heavy feeling on the skin.

 

I bought the largest size which is 300ml / 10.56 fl.oz. The packaging is a green colour to symbolize the main ingredient - (92%)  Aloe Vera. It is a strong and sturdy tub with a clear plastic covering inside to prevent any spillage of the gel. Although there is a plastic covering, the product sticks to the underside of it and when it is removed and placed back, it sometimes causes spillage. Which makes things a little messy. However it can easily be cleaned and moisturized in to the hands. It is a little tricky removing the covering as well.

HOW I USE IT:

I use this in the mornings as a day moisturizer as I do not want anything heavy on my skin. 
The nature republic moisturizer is a gel, but when it is massaged in to the it turns liquidy so it can be easily absorbed in to the skin. 
As it is winter in the UK and is rather cold, some sections of my skin become partially dry so I use a second cream based moisturizer, on top of the Nature Republic one.


* If you have excess product it can be used as a simple hand moisturizer. It does the job perfectly and smells really nice!*
THE BACK OF THE PRODUCT

THE BACK OF THE PACKAGING IS MOSTLY KOREAN

INCLUDES SOME ENGLISH WRITING OF THE INGREDIENTS


This product does not give a sticky or heavy finish. It also lasts a very long time which is a definite plus.Most of the writing is also in Korean, but the ingredients are also in English so we can understand what we are putting on our skin which is good!
It also weirdly helps with some of my acne and reduces the redness of some spots.

The overall packaging is neat and simple. The downside to the product is the clear plastic covering because it is a little tricky to handle.
