Nature Republic’s Aloe Vera Soothing Gel: A Hit or Miss?

Updated on June 3, 2018

I used to be one of the lucky ones who have nice, clear skin before I started working on a night shift. I never had a problem of small bumps on my face or tiny pimples that don’t look appealing and visible under the light or when I apply a face powder. I was contented using a simple facial cleanser and I did not have to consult a dermatologist.

But recently, things changed and my face is at its worst possible condition. I am an obsessive compulsive when it comes to my face. I make sure that I don’t touch anything whenever I’m doing my beauty regimen. I even don’t let other people touch any of my beauty stuff for my fear that they might contaminate it.

I see to it that I cleanse, tone and moisturize before I go to sleep. I also once tried to wash my face with toothpaste (of course, I wash it immediately after applying because it will sting) but none of them worked for me. I also tried using gel patches on some noticeable bumps but after a day or two, my skin goes back to looking like a bumpy road.

One night when I was browsing the internet and watching different beauty and makeup videos, I came across this product that people are raving about. I was hesitant at first because I was afraid that it won’t work for me. Until one day, I decided to finally give it a try.

Here’s what I think of the packaging and the product itself.

The product is stored inside a green cylindrical container. You can see that it has 300 ml. Remember to always refrigerate the product to ensure its effectivity.

This is the bottom of the tub which shows the expiration date, description, directions for use and ingredients.

This is what the product looks like inside. It has a gel-like consistency which quickly runs down your hand during application. By the way, there is a plastic cover which separates the product from its cover lid.

The tub may seem small to others but I’m telling you, it can last you at least 4-6 months to use up the entire product with daily usage. You just need a small amount of gel to cover your entire face and neck.

Here’s my review of the aloe vera gel.

What I love the most is its smell. It is really really great! It’s so refreshing and calming. It reminds me of the ocean‘s cool breeze and makes me feel like I’m one with the nature.

I heard from other people that they find aloe vera gel a bit sticky when applying that’s why they prefer non-sticky counterparts. I will say that this is true but only during the application since the consistency is quite runny. Upon application, it will feel sticky and cool. Just let it dry and it will feel smooth later on.

I sleep with an aloe vera gel on my face and just let it dry while sleeping. When I wake up in the morning, my face looks so refreshed like I had full 8 hours of sleep (or more) and my face looks smoother (yes, I noticed a significant reduction of tiny pimples on my face). This is like my new holy grail and this for sure will be a mainstay in my night routine. I would suggest that you give this product a try and you won’t regret it. You can purchase this item in Amazon using the link below.

Before I end this review, the only thing that I did not like about the product is its container. I’m not a fan of tubs and since I’m an obsessive compulsive when it comes to my face, I find it unsanitary to dip my finger or a spatula in it. I wish they packed it in a pump bottle instead. But overall, I love this product and I will definitely repurchase after consuming my entire tub.
