Aloe vera or you may find it as Aloe barbadensis in cosmetics or skincare is often used as a skin healing regimen.
Nature Republic Aloe Vera gel 92%
A year ago i tried the famous Nature Republic Aloe Vera gel 92% and love the result on my inflmated face. It gives my skin smooth feeling and not causing any breakouts. Unfortunately it was a little bit hard to find this product in Indonesia. Ordering online is the only way to purchase it. So i began to search for other alternatives for my aloe vera needs.
Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel
I found this innisfree aloe revital soothing gel with its 300 ml tube with affordable price. This is the best aloe vera container so far since most of the aloe vera comes in a jar. With its more liquidy texture than nature republic and absolutely no fragrance, this gel is suitable for sensitive and dehydrated skin. It doesn’t cause any breakouts either. The down side is (for me) after i used this there’s some wax like coating on my skin a bit slippery when i wash my face with water.
Beauty K Jeju Fresh Aloe Soothing Gel
This was made in Bogor by PT Bina Cipta Kreasi Bangsa. Never heard of them? yea me too. You can buy this at Guardian. The packaging is pretty similar with The saem aloe vera, so you might get tricked.
The texture is thicker than Innisfree and it has weird scents. Not annoying at first but after i finished applying it on my face the scents is a bit like plasticy smell. The good side is it doesn’t break my skin out. Yay! I haven’t tried this for a long period so i don’t know how it will make my skin better or not, but it’s a good start since it doesn’t cause any redness when it touches my face, O and there’s no wax like coating left in the morning after i use this. This is the skincarisma’s result for Beauty K jeju Fresh Aloe Soothing Gel and the POM number is NA18160101985 in case you’re in doubt.
Overall my favorite is still the Nature Republic 92% this is my third jar, using it very wisely since it is hard to find. The texture is perfect, it has fragrance but not too strong, i love how it heals my trouble skin and doesn’t leave that coated with wax feeling.
So does it really works for me? yes!
Which one do i like the most? It is got to be the Nature Republic. If only i could get it easily in Jakarta. Second best would be the Beauty K, i love the Innisfree’s packaging tho.
