Since Cosmopolitan Indonesia provided their lovely readers with a tub of Nature Republics 92% Aloe Vera Soothing Gel (i've stated about it in my september haul post), i decided to write this review. Maybe it could help you to know the product better.
I bought this one last July, and i'm still keeping the free one sealed.
2 font cover of Cosmopolitan Indonesia, september edition
Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel is one of Nature Republic's best seller product. It's contains of 92% aloe vera that helps to calm the redness and dry skin stimulated by sun and also provided moisture.
According to nature republic, theres several way to use aloe vera (instead of only for redness and dry skin) :
and here's the amazing product :
I love their cover design, it's clean-look and describe the insider very well.
.. open the lid and here's the product inside!
it's a big big tub, contains 300ml of product, it's bigger than usual body butter in Indonesia *LOL
the tub is lovely, it's clear green tub made from plastic.
here's the size compare to my iPod Touch, doesn't it's big?
ingredients list :
aloe barbadensis leaf extract (92%), alcohol, glyceryl polyacrylate, dipropylene glycol, butylene glycol, glycerin, propylene glycol, 1,2-hexanediol, polyglutamic acid, betaine, sodium hyaluronate, carendula officinalis flower extract, mentha viridis (spearmint) extract, melissa officinalis extract, carbomer, PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil, triethanolamine, phenoxyethanol, water, parfum, disodium edta
it's formulated without parabens, mineral oil and artificial colors. But sadly, it's still contains alcohol and parfum (perfume). Oh well, there's nothing perfect.
and because it's only contains of natural preservatives, it's better for not keeping it for long time. 6 month will be good, but if more than that, you might have to throw it ..
and here's the product on my hand.
It's a clear aloe gel with a slight cool sensation (even if it's outside refrigerator) which is not sticky. It's easy to absorb and light weight. Feels like you're use nothing once it's absorbed.
i really love this, i use it as body lotion's substitute, for my chapped hands, moisturizing my face and gives a cool sensation to my eyes when i'm tired ♥
the only problem with it is it comes in jar, which is not hygienic, because you have to dip your finger down. I'm used to use small spatula to help me, but now i decided to depot it into a pump bottle, yay!
all i need are :
a cleaned bottle with pump
no special direction, just take product with spatula, and fill the bottle spoon-by-spoon. It's quite easy to moving it, just put product in the bottle mouth and tap!
the product will go down it self (ﾉ´∀｀*)ﾉ
now i have a bottle of aloe vera, and there's few amount in tub, for my today's usage.
blub blub blub blub
the tub is almost empty! yay!
i'm gonna use the tub for drying my brushes .. hahaha ..
the bottle i used is used to be Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil's bottle. It could be fill with 230ml of product, and compared to another pump bottle, it's drop fewer amounts of product (because its supposed to be drop only few amount to clean face).
see the 230ml sign?
for me, it's a amazing product i will repurchase once it's empty. In indonesia, it can be easily purchase through online shop or if you stay in Jakarta, i heard that Nature Republic will open their store there (thats why they gives the sample through cosmopolitan indonesia! psst!)
thanks for reading, hope you enjoy it ..
