BNTgirl x Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture ALOE VERA

Time sure flies when you’re having fun.

One of the first products ever given to me by BNTnews for the BNTgirls was the Comelyco Aloe, which you can read here. Now we’ve come full circle, two years later and I’m reviewing what may be the OG (original) aloe.

From Nature Republic, today I be reviewing their Soothing & Moisture ALOE VERA 92% Soothing Gel.

Ba-bam! I think it’s one of Nature Republic’s most quintessential products. It’s maybe what everyone associates it to at least. For around $5 USD there’s not much that can be it in price v. quality v. quantity. I still have about a quarter of the tub of the first aloe gel BNTnews gave me. So $5 for good times, you can’t beat that price.

Of course there’ll be differences, the most major of the two would be that Nature Republic’s features 3% less aloe, and I think that may be a good thing. The comelyco one was a bit too gel like and wouldn’t absorb into my skin properly, but I definitely felt like the Nature Republic one did.

Now the acne test, good news guys I actually had a minor hormonal break out to truly test this product last week. I’m weak especially on my forehead and my chin.

So the before:

The after (about 15 hours into viciously applying it onto my chin):

As you can see from the images, the redness definitely toned down A LOT. And overall it just calmed the whole problem area down.

I really like aloe, it’s a awesome gift from nature (heh, nature republic) and it’s yummy and it’s awesome for treating acne and sunburns.

So all in all, I definitely think everyone should just have a tub at home.

It’s $7 of happiness guys, totally worth.

You can get it for $7 and free 2 day shipping with prime here

10/10

BNTgirl x Comelyco JEJU Organic Aloe 95% Gel

Bonsoir! Alo!

I’m back, and I’m sad to say this might be my last BNTBeauty Box series review, good news though, I’ll actually be pairing these reviews with video reviews. So hopefully everyone will get a better sense, or visual, of the product.

First up is one of my favorite products this time in my BNTBeauty Box, it’s Comelyco’s Jeju Organic Aloe 95% Soothing Gel! Aloe is so in, very haute stuff (haha, get it? It’ll help soothe your burnt skin).

First off let’s set the scene, Jeju Island (Hawaii-like but Korean?), sand between our toes and the nice heat of the sun against our skin. Ouch, too much sun maybe? Aloe to the rescue.

As the product states in it’s very informative title, it’s a gel that’s 95% aloe and is from Jeju (organic). Jeju(do) is an Korean island south of the Korean mainland, on the Korean Strait, and is a very popular honeymoon/vacation spot for tourists and nationals alike. The island is suppose to have healing properties, from it’s volcano/volcano mud, and the warmer climate in general.

Almostttttttttttttt paradiseeeeeee~

Don’t you just think about Boys over Flowers as well when you think of Aloe x Jeju?

Plus it’s organic. It contains no;

  • Artificial Colors
  • Parabens
  • Benzopenone
  • Animal raw materials
  • PG
  • PEG
  • formaldehyde

Ecofriendly Aloe is the best aloe, anytime anywhere, be it on the beach on a exotic Korean island or at home (representing the North-East of the USA here). But what does aloe do you may ask?

Now this maybe silly, but you may also ask what does it smell like??? Aloe. I’m not very helpful here but if you go to a bubble tea shop and if they do serve aloe jelly it smells like this! So it also smells like bubble tea….yum. Less sugar-y of course.

But really, most importantly, what does it do for your skin.

Aloe-mazing things.

For the past week, I’ve been majorly stressed; projects, exams, life, lack of sleep etc, the whole lot. It left my skin in pretty bad shape, Comelyco’s Jeju Organic Aloe 95% came in like a present sent from the skincare gods.

In the next few photos I’ll show you in the course of 3 real days how it transformed my skin complexion (dull ->radiant) and how it helped with my acne/redness greatly. Seriously aloe-rrah!

First let’s show my nose, as you can see on the tip there’s a few bumps, small imperfections (mini acne attack) and redness.

Bippity boppity boo-aloe! Nose awesomeness.

Next major pain/acne attack area is my chin.

Transforming my skin, one day at a time, you can see how the acne spots and red spots simply disappear, like they were never there to harass me. BNTbeauty Box savior.

Here’s a picture of my overall complexion, see the magic. Bare skin magic. I feel ready to show the world my naked face after aloe-jic happened.

Aloe-rffic!

This aloe gel has been amazing to my face for the last week or so, and I can’t say anymore great things about it, besides it’s wonderful.

But wait, there’s more!

You can buy this skin wonder here for only $5.44. Yes. You read that right. $5.44.

I’m giving this skincare magic in a jar a 10/10.

My full blessing. What’s there to lose? It costs as much a Venti latte from Starbucks, go ahead, enjoy.
