Nature Republic's Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Review

Ladies and gentlemen, what we have now is yet another late post. lol :D

I've been using this since January and while I'm really impressed with this brand/product, it's only now that I can confidently write a review about the product - okay, okay, I got lazy, that's all. :D

Anyway, as mentioned earlier, I really like using this aloe gel for reasons below.. Nature Republic's Aloe Vera Soothing Gel looks like this:


That clear gel instantly cools the skin. I like using this when my skin allergy is acting up as it has soothing effect. I was not expecting too much from this product as it is relatively cheap at 220Php (tub is big, tbh) but was really impressed when it was able to tame my very angry, very red welts - my allergic reaction to dust. I think this aloe gel is perfect for soothing sunburns too!

According to Nature Republic website:

It contains 92% real aloe that calms the reddened and dry skin stimulated by the sun and provides moisture.

I heard this is Nature Republic's bestseller. I won't be surprised if it really is as the product does wonders to the skin, I can personally attest to that. 

Interestingly, this soothing gel can be used in so many different ways:


I tried it as hair treatment, nail essence, moisturizer and for mild sunburn, and it seems to work as claimed. It's not sticky and has a very pleasant smell. When used on my skin allergies, it kills the itchy feeling at once so no more scratching for me. Not sticky at all when used as hair treatment. While it didn't stop altogether, I noticed it was able to reduce hair fall.

What I don't like though is the packaging. Since it is in a tub, you have to scoop out the gel, dipping your fingers/hands in and out everytime you need to, which is unhygienic, if you ask me. Add to that the fact that its consistency is a little thin/liquidy, making  it doubly hard to scoop out an ample amount in one hand-dip motion. Not really travel-friendly as the tub is huge and really bulky. I think this product is better off in a tube. I'm even thinking of transferring the gel to a bottle with pump so I can bring it with me on travels.

Oh, one more thing, this, i think, is only for mild skin hydration as it wasn't able to entirely combat my scaly reptilian skin. lol :D

yes, I will repurchase, because it is really good. :)

nde kc ako sure using aloe on my face, last time it broke me out, maybe the other uses :D do u know if ok xa gamitin for colored hair? baka kc mawala un kulay hehe

I am gie said...

hmm sa face natry ko na sha once, parang hindi sha pang-oil control. yung normal na time ng-ooil ang face ko without anything, ayun ganun din sa kanya kaya hindi ko na ulit ginamit sa face. okay siguro to sa dry skin,hindi pwede sa oily-combi. as hair treatment naman, muka naman hindi sha nakakafade ng color kasi nung nagcolor ako ng hair, ginamit ko din to, okay naman sha.

How to apply this to your hair? Onto the tip only or from the root?
Thx for the review btw ;)

I am gie said...

Hello Nocturne! I just apply it directly to the scalp and massage it in :) thanks for visiting! :)

jessica lom said...

hi, may I know how u use it to reduce hair fall? I have the same problem as well~

I am gie said...

Hello Jessica, I just apply it directly to the scalp after washing the hair and let it dry as usual. I'm not sure if this product is for preventing hair fall but in my case, it sure lessened the amount of fallen hair strands during hair wash. :)
