This is the review of one of my favorite Aloe-Vera gel – OxyGlow Nature’s Care Aloevera & Apple Face Massage Gel. I’m obsessed with Aloe-Vera products, I like everything about this amazing plant. I don’t think there is a need to tell you guys about the importance of Aloe-Vera products in beauty regime. Personally I prefer to choose my skin care and hair care products that contains Aloe-Vera extracts. For few times I even used it in place of my sunscreen lotion as Aloe-vera is known to have some SPF (organic sealant) . But only during winters when there is no sun or when I had not much exposure to sun. I don’t recommend to replace your sunscreen with Aloe-Vera gel and step out in the sun by just applying this gel as clinically it won’t protect you enough from the harmful UVA/UVB rays.
Packaging : It comes in a big transparent jar with a broad mouth and a sturdy green cap (packaging is almost the same as offered by the other brands). They also provides a plastic cover under the cap.
My Experience : This is again one of my recently online purchased product. And I’m loving this gel, it has a light green color and has amazing fruity fragrance. It has a perfect consistency which is expected from the gel creams (neither very thick nor runny). I’m using this gel for a week now, it does feel sticky in the beginning but is completely absorbed by the skin within 2 minutes. It does not feel heavy on the skin and provides smooth soft glowing skin.
I’ve a sensitive skin which is more prone to acne, rashes and blemishes. I always prefer to use skin care products that contains natural ingredients. I’m using Aloe-Vera gels from last five years. I had used Aloe-Vera gels from brands like Natures, Aplomb (Click here to view the complete review of Aplomb Aloe-Vera Gel), Patanjali Aloe-Vera gel , Cipla and one more brand (I don’t remember its name). I have also tried Aloe-Vera pulp direct from the plant but that didn’t suit my skin. Coming to this particular product , it just not a 100% pure Aloe-Vera gel but along with Aloe-vera it also contains natural ingredients like honey, apply & cucumber extracts.
Yesterday I got some free time, so I decided to go for a facial at home. I used Lakme Clean-up Clear Pores range face wash, scrub & mask and OxyGlow Aloe-Vera & Apple gel to complete my facial. It took me 30 minutes to complete the process.
Step 1 : Washed my face using Lakme Clean-up open pores face wash.
Step 2 : Then I took scrub from same Lakme Clean-up range and gently message all over my face & neck. I focused on my T-zone which is the problematic area on my face. After gentle scrubbing for 2 minutes I washed it off my face using lukewarm water.
Step 3 : Now I applied Lakme Clean-up open pores face mask on my face & neck and let it dry and rinsed it off after 15 minutes.
Step 4 : After patting my face dry I took generous amount of this gel and massaged it all over my face & neck in circular motions. It took 5-10 minutes to completely absorb this gel into my skin.
Result : I noticed a radiant glow on my face, it didn’t make my skin dry. It moisturized and hydrated my skin and the moisture stayed for more than 5 hours (I did my facial at 3 pm and my skin was moisturized till bed time, around 8:30 pm). I think the combination of Aloe-Vera, Apple, Cucumber, Honey & Glycerin is making this gel more beneficial. I must say it is one of the best Aloe-Vera gel that I had used so far.
What I Liked :
- Nice blend of natural ingredients
- Soothing & Moisturizing
- Refreshing Fruity Fragrance
- Suitable for all skin types
What I Disliked :
- The packaging Jar is not full with the gel and is fill till 3/4th level
