Aloe and me are just like best friends. It is one of my most favourite ingredient in skincare products. I’m grateful my skin can tolerate aloe well because it’s such a wonderful and amazing ingredient. I bet almost all of us might have used aloe in the past for sunburns, skin burns, minor cuts, or small abrasions.
“Aloe vera is perhaps one of the most widely used herbal remedies for topical skin conditions. This is because the gel-like components of the plant are known to heal the skin from a variety of minor ailments.” (healthline.com)
There are so many benefits that you can get from the gooey and translucent sap of this thorny triangular plant.“Aloe vera is very well known for its ability to moisturize and heals dry, flaky skin. It also able to soothe irritated skin, fights acne and fade blemishes, removes dark circles and puffiness and it also helps with signs of aging.” (bebeautiful.in)
Well, now everyone knows how amazing and full of skin benefits aloe vera is right? No wonder my skin can easily get attached to it dearly! The most common products with aloe vera are aloe vera soothing gel. You can see a lot of brands produces this aloe soothing gel, but what makes this “Benton Aloe Real Cool Soothing Gel” so special and it’s the best soothing gel that I’ve ever tried? Check it out down below! 😍
I’ve tried quite a lot of soothing gel from various brands but the moment I saw this product, I knew I have to try it! Who will say NO to product that can give you cooling and soothing sensation? Especially for me who live in scorching hot weather like Malaysia, this product which is made of 93% of Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, it is definitely a saviour to soothe and calm down the skin. Plus when it’s from Benton, the brand that’s really close to my heart, I knew Benton never failed me. ❤️😘
Just like other Benton products, this aloe soothing gel is free from volatile alcohol, artificial fragrance, coloring PEG surfactants or any controversial ingredients. So this product is very suitable to all skin type unless your skin can’t tolerate with the product ingredients.
This product comes with standard and usual packaging of aloe vera soothing gel, just like most brands out there. It’s packaged in a large 300ml green plastic jar with lid inside. I wish for the packaging like this, it will come with spatula but unfortunately it’s not, but it’s okay I use my own spatula then for hygiene purposes.
Firstly, I’m very thankful for how thoughtful Benton is. As you guys know, typically aloe vera gel will include alcohol to their products to give the cooling sensation (as what aloe vera gel supposed to be, cooling the skin) That type of gel surely have a stronger cooling sensation, but this Benton Aloe Real Cool Soothing Gel comes out with genius formulation, which is ‘𝐒𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐂𝐨𝐨𝐥𝐞𝐫’, a compound patented in Korea consisting of five botanical ingredients which are :
(1) Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract
(2) Laminaria Japonica Root Extract
(3) Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract
(4) Ulmus Davidiana Extract
(5) Viola Mandshurica Flower Extract
All of these ingredients has such a powerful benefits like anti-inflammatory, skin detoxifying anti aging, skin hydrating, skin calming and also anti-acne. Compared to the volatile alcohol, this Soothing Cooler will give 𝐍𝐀𝐓𝐔𝐑𝐀𝐋 and 𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐋 cooling, soothing sensation without irritating skin.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract(93%), 1,2-Hexanediol, Propanediol, Laminaria Japonica Extract, Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Viola Mandshurica Flower Extract, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Pinus Sylvestris Leaf Extract, Carbomer, Arginine, Sodium Phytate
The texture is superb! It has gel transparent bouncy texture that is very satisfying to look at. I also love how it spreads beautifully like water droplets on the skin and absorbed very quick without leaving any tacky feeling. I almost want to slather it all over my body as it makes me addicted! 😅 And yes you can actually, as this product can be used for the face, body and even hair! 👍This type of texture is very suitable and helpful when I’m outside in hot weathers and want something cooling and soothing but at the same time absorbs fast without leaving any tacky feeling to the skin. My skin feels very hydrating and soothing and this aloe gel also gives the ‘chok-chok’ feeling! The best part is, I’m so in love of how my skin feels after applying this gel. 𝐈𝐭’𝐬 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐬𝐨𝐟𝐭!!! 😍😍😍 𝘞𝘩𝘰 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘯𝘦𝘦𝘥 𝘭𝘰𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘧𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘢 𝘮𝘶𝘤𝘩 𝘣𝘦𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘦𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘴𝘰𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘴 𝘸𝘦𝘭𝘭? Oh man, this product is such a winner!
This aloe soothing is also a multipurpose product. It can be used as a hydrating mist, put it in the mask pack or just simply place it on facial cotton pad and apply the pad to particular part that in need of soothing and hydrating. I love to chill it in the fridge prior using it in order to boost up the cooling sensation. Since this aloe gel is very lightweight and quickly absorbed, I don’t get any problems to layer it with any other products.
Rate : 4.9/5 (I would give it full marks if they include the spatula haha) This product hss become my ultimate favourite and my hands always get it whenever my skin is irritated or not comfortable in hot weather. The fact that it’s free from volatile alcohol and fragrance made it safe to be used daily.
