HOW TO USE

Open the cap and place the cleansing water on top of cotton pad and gently swipe the cotton pad your skin to remove makeup and other impurities.

MY THOUGHT

The formulation of the cleansing water is very gentle and non-irritating to my sensitive skin. Because of the gentle formulation, it is safe to use around eyes area. I didn’t feel any stinging sensation when the cleansing water gets into my eyes.

Whenever I use the cleansing water my skin immediately feel refreshed and clean. And also I’m really impressed with the cleansing water performance in removing waterproof makeup. I don’t even need to use cleansing oil as the Nu Formula cleansing water are able to clean all waterproof makeup and left only minimal residue behind (refer video)

The cleansing water really does it jobs in deep cleansing my skin as i notice there’s a lot of dirt on top of cotton pad whenever i use the cleansing water especially in my morning skincare routine and in the evening  after work.

It also makes my skin feels clean and silky smooth but it doesn’t make my skin feels tight and squeaky clean as i feel it left a moisturising layer on top of my skin but non-greasy feeling to it.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

Overall I love the cleansing water a lot as I feel I am able to minimize my skincare routine by skipping cleansing oil as the cleansing water does it job in deep cleansing my skin without making it feels dry. The gentle formulation is really great and suit my sensitive and acne prone skin condition.

I never thought I would found a cleansing water that is powerful in removing a highly waterproof and pigmented makeup with just few swipes. This cleansing water can be used to remove sun protection cream and  highly pigmented makeup.

RECOMMENDATION

The cleansing water is suitable for all skin type especially for sensitive skin. It is gentle and free from non-irritating ingredient that can trigger sensitive and sensitizing skin unless you have intolerance in one of the ingredient listed on the packaging. YMMV

It comes in opaque green coloured tub packaging with a stopper to prevent product leakage and spilling. At the bottom of the tub it stated all information related to product such as detail ingredient list, manufacturing date (mfg date), expiry date (exp date) and direction on how to use the products. The capacity of the aloe vera gel is 300 ml

The texture of vera gel is clear and transparent gel. It is lightweight gel and easily absorb into the skin. While the aloe vera gel smells refreshing and it smells like typical aloe vera gel, smells nice and calming.

HOW TO USE

I have several methods using the aloe vera gel since aloe vera gel is very well known with its great benefit. I’m not only using the gel as moisturizer to replenish my dry skin, I also use the gel as wash off mask, hair mask and after shave soothing gel moisturize the shaved area. 

MY THOUGHTS

  1.  AS MOISTURIZER I love using the aloe vera gel as moisturizer as it has a non-sticky yet lightweight formulation that easily absorbs into the skin. while it moisturize my skin, the gel provide a cooling sesation to my skin but i have to add on emulsion in order to get enough moisture as the aloe vera gel alone doesn’t enough to moisturize my dry skin. It only provide minimal hydration for my dehydrated skin.
  2. AS WASH-OFF MASK & LEAVE ON MASK – 

    This is my most favourite method of using the gel. I apply the gel thickly on top of my skin and leave it approximately 5-10 minutes and wash it off. After washing off the gel, my skin immediately feel as smooth as silk and i cannot stop from touching my skin. I can also see my skin looks smooth and much more radiant.

    Sometimes I use it as leave on mask. I apply thickly on my skin and went straight to bed and I’m waking up with a long lasting moisture and my skin looks more calmer as the gel soothes my skin the entire night.

  3. AS HAIR MASK – I had a serious hair fall problem. I had read few tips in reducing hair fall one of it is by using aloe vera gel as hair mask. I’ve been trying the tips and surprisingly it works! I notice my hair fall had reduced a lot even my mom notice the changes. I usually apply the aloe vera gel thickly on my hair approximately 15 minutes before taking a shower. Not only my hair fall reduced, my hair looks more healthy, shiny and smooth.
  4.  AFTER SHAVE TREATMENT- My skin tend to feel dry and rough after shaving. So my solution to smooth and give moisture to the dry and rough area is by using aloe vera gel. My skin immediately feels smooth and it soothes the shaved area.

     

OVERALL THOUGHTS

I really love the aloe vera gel as i can use the gel at different part of my hair and body but still can see the amazing results from it. The easily absorbs formulation make me love the gel even more as it doesn’t contain irritating ingredient such as alcohol, mineral oil, paraben, benzophenone, and artificial coloring. But it does contain fragrance at the bottom ingredient list. So if you have intolerance to fragrance you will need to avoid using the gel. I have no issue with fragrance and my skin love the gel s much!

RECOMMENDATION

I highly recommend the aloe vera gel for all skin type including sensitive skin condition. Discontinue use if signs of irritation or rashes appear.  YMMV
