I bought this from Korea at Nature Republic stores in Myeong Dong and Dong Dae Mun. I forgot the actual price but I remember it being sold in bulk packets of around 4 at a rather reasonable price! So reasonable that I bought it back to Singapore for my friends who requested me to buy. Apparently it is known to be effective for helping dry skin and also easing sun burnt skin.
This product has a gel type texture and has a really nice scent to it. It is soothing just like its purpose and it gives off a cooling sensation to your skin when applied on. One can use it on sun burnt areas or use it as a moisturizer for very dry skin! I believe that this product is hyped because of its effectiveness towards dry skin. Unfortunately your truly is of oily skin type so I did not find it of much use. The most impressive thing about it is the cooling touch when applied onto skin. It is 92% aloe vera. This product differs from other brands in the way it is sold at a reasonable price IN BULK of 4!!!! I even saw bulk package of 10.
I would recommend this product specially for those with dry skin or always spends time under the sun. People with oily skin (like me) will find it less useful.
I heard this aloe Vera can help to calm acne and fade acne scars. So I shared buying with friends on *****. I used it as moisturizer, a bit too sticky for my oily face, can't really see the effects. It didn't help to fade scars, it didn't help to soothe my acne too. It left me a feeling of tightness after use.
Everyone is a fan of Nature Republic Aloe gel. This is the gel to use if you need to soothe your skin and can be used on any other parts of your body as well.
A great amount at a great price. Only thing is I prefer it to come in a bottle and pump - Easier for application.
i love using this after cleansing and exfoliating my face. it is very soothing and cool. i love the scent. it doesnt dry quickly but i like it. sticky but soothing. recommend to people who has dry skin because it is hydrating.
This product really does what it promises in terms of being soothing and moisturising! (: Moreover, it is cheaper than most products of the same range from different cosmetics companies. It is very hydrating and soothing especially after like burns or sunburns, cracks or peels! It works really nicely for my body.
However, although it is really nice, I wouldnt want to use it on my face because it makes my face really sticky and oily afterwards and hard to clean ):
One way you can achieve the full effect of the hydrating and soothing effect is to put it in the fridge! The cold is really numbing (in a nice way) and especially good for summer/ weather like Singapore
