Today i’m reviewing one of Nature Republic’s best selling products. It is the Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel. This product gets a ridiculous amount of praise from other beauty junkies and I purchased this out of curiosity for AUD$9.00.
“This soothing gel, which contains California CCOF-certified organic Aloe Vera, is mild to the skin and can be used to moisturise the face, arms, legs, and hair. This soothing gel contains 92% Aloe Vera extract, which moisturises the skin quickly without leaving a sticky feeling behind.”
How to use: As the last step of the basic skincare routine in the morning and nighttime, apply an appropriate amount on the face.
The product comes in a generous 300ml tub. The packaging is pretty bulky, which isn’t very travel friendly. However, I am a fan of the green colour, it feels very fresh and pure.
Apparently there are actually eight different ways you can use this product:
- Moisturising cream or mask pack
- Base makeup
- After shave cream
- Hair treatment
- Relax swollen eyes
- Nail essence
- Body care
- Mask pack for relaxing sunburns
The soothing gel feels very lightweight and cool to the skin. I find that this works very nicely when applied after shaving. The cooling effect feels amazing on the skin, which makes this quite handy when accidentally burning your skin. Although this does feel quite nice on the body, it’s not as moisturising as I hoped. After a few minutes, I find that this dries pretty quickly, leaving my skin feeling in need of more product. I like that Nature Republic was very generous with the amount they put inside the tub, so this will last quite a while for someone like me. The fact that this product has multiple functions is a plus for me.
- Generous amount of product
- Nice cooling effect
- Light consistency
- Not moisturising enough
- Bulky/heavy packaging
