I've been using the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel since last summer... and I've been meaning to blog about it, but never got around to it. I tell you this stuff is literally a steal. You can find this selling at HKD 2x in Hong Kong. I recall buying mine at Bonjour, but you can get this at SaSa or just anywhere. I think you can even find this at a cheaper price in Korea.
What it is is just an aloe vera gel. I use this as a sleeping mask at night as added hydration. It's also useful for cooling the skin down after sunburns. Sometimes I use this on my body as well as my face. It's just so cheap that I let myself use as much as want and don't feel bad about it.
The texture is a little sticky at first after application, but the product gets absorbed into the skin relatively quickly so it doesn't bother me. The product has a refreshing scent.
Effectiveness: Added hydration on top of my normal skincare routine. Multipurpose.
Price: Simply can't be beaten
Repurchase: Sure, why not?
Verdict: Bang for the buck!
