This purchase was made by me a couple of months back when I was in all “Herbal and Natural” products phase. I still prefer basic household skin care routine, things which are easy to understand, easy on pocket and easily available. Now tell me something, why should I use a product which has a small extract of Aloevera gel to enjoy the goodness of aloe when I can use the pure aloe gel instead? :P. Also you don’t know what all chemicals will be loaded to the poor aloe by the time they reach us. I really don’t believe it when the product claims “extract of this herb” or “with the goodness of that oil”. I prefer hunting for the herb instead and making my way around it. And aloe gel is super easy to find and affordable also. Now the best thing may be to use the leaf to get the fresh gel but I don’t have an aloe plant at my place so settled for this with 90% W/V aloe vera gel.

My Experience with PRODUCT
I was not sure of how I wanted to use the product, so I was experimenting with it. The consistency is that of a gel. It claims to be good for marks, so the first day I used it only over marks. It was very light, didn’t feel like I applied anything on skin, so the next day I thought I will apply like a pack on face after cleaning and wipe off in an hour or so. But it was again so light and my skin felt natural that I didn’t wipe it off and slept with it. Now, I have read that it may make skin dry if left overnight for some people, so I was cautious. But it was absolutely fine for me. So I zeroed to this method of usage. And quite frankly I was undergoing a breakout phase so wasn’t using a night cream at all, with the fear of breakouts. So, this one easily slipped into my daily night care regime. I did not feel any need for any cream or moisturizer after applying this. My skin felt very relaxed, light and refreshed. It gave my skin a natural cool as if I washed my face with some enriched water, just that this water like thing stays on my face and doesn’t drip down. Even when I woke up in morning the skin didn’t feel irritated or dry out.
It did not much work on my acne scars, just a bit lighter may be. Not much work on the pigmentation part as well. But still I am happy with the natural moisturizer part.
