Review: Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

Wednesday, 22 January 2014

Hello, my dear readers! How's your day today? As for me, me and mum went to hospital today to get some meds supplies. It's raining season right now so to all of you out there, please take care of your body and eat proper food, okay?

Anyway, today I'm going to review another product that I carried along while I was on trip a week ago which is this awesome Aloe Vera Soothing Gel from Nature Republic!


Hours and hours of walking under the sun, my whole body felt like burning at some point so this is the savior! But first, let's go to the basic details.

Product Description:
Enriched with 92% Aloe Vera! 
Mild formula free from paraben, mineral oil and artificial colours.
This soothing gel with 92% organic Aloe Vera certified by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) can be used to mildly moisturize various parts of the body such as the face, legs and hair.

How to use:
Apply appropriate amount to dry , sensitive parts of the face and body for best results.

Net Weight: 300ml


Wah~ That's Hara! Along with two other KARA's members, she endorsed this brand for a year and this product is one of those promoted by her. If I'm not mistaken I think there's a poster with Jang Geun Suk holding the product as well.

Updated: here's a video where EXO-K is doing some promotional shooting for the product. Though it has no English subs. Do tell if you see it anywhere with subs, okay!



From info that I got from around the internet, this product is an upgrade from a previous version, which is promoted by Jaejoong, that have 90% of real aloe vera in it.

Anyway, let's get on to the packaging.


Basically, the product is housed within this huge transparent green tub. They used real aloe vera as illustration I bet to show how natural the product is. Of course, they use green hues. Fresh and soothing!


There's a product description at the bottom of the tub. Just zoom in to see the long list of ingredient as well. 


There's a nice transparent plastic lid provided so it won't spilled while you're traveling with it. 


That's the aloe vera gel. It's colourless, smells fresh, with cool and soothing sensation. It's a lot so you can use it for a long time. Well, I recommend within a year. 


As you can see here, that's how it looks like on skin. That generous amount can cover my whole face, including neck area. :D

Final verdict: 

Do you know that this product is multi-purpose product? I bet you already can imagine!

Of course, I gotta try these methods! :D
  1. Moisturizing cream. On those days while traveling, when I get really exhausted, I just removed my makeup, wash my face, used my toner, and apply this on my face as my moisturizer. 
  2. Make up base. How? Mix the gel with foundation or BB cream and apply it as usual on skin. Totally gives you a very nice cool sensation. Though it's kinda hard to blend. For me, this need practice. hehe
  3. After shaving for boys. Or girls. I'll use this after shaving my legs cause my legs tend to get dry after shaving. So this is good. 
  4. Hair treatment. I do this sometimes. When my hair feel dry, I'll put on the gel at the ends and it'll make my hair more lively and soft. I sometimes put on my scalp as well. 
  5. Relax swollen eyes. After late night sessions at the studio, lack of sleep will give me panda eyes, or after watching sad Japanese drama (have you seen 1 Litre of Tears???) this soothing gel is definitely helping in calming down my eyes. hehe ...or after my best friend went back to Singapore. I'll cry like crazy! T_T
  6. Nail essence. I tend to neglect my nails like most of the time so I use this gel as treatment. 
  7. Body care. I use this like I'm using my body lotion. Just smooth it to all over my body.
  8. Mask. If you want, you can use dry mask sheet and put this on. Or just put this on your face for 15 minutes or more and wash it off and continue with your skincare routine. I prefer the latter method. 
Overall, I love this soothing gel. The generous amount in one tub, I can use it in so many ways, and above all, it's really helping in soothing my sunburns while I was on my trip (yeah, I kinda forgot to put on sunscreen for like 6 hours or so...). 

I find a lot of people pointing out the huge bulky tub is a minus point but for me, it's okay. I just scoop out the gel into my traveling containers and voila! problem solved!

I have my own spatulas so yeah, it's okay for not getting this gel without accompanying spatula. Spatula costs me like RM5. Cheap. 

Final verdict: 5/5. By far, this is the best Korean soothing gel I have tried, and I'm definitely be looking forward to the next upgrade. 95% of aloe vera gel I supposed! 

I got this from the Nature Republic Malaysia store in Sunway Pyramid for only RM32.90. 300ml for only RM32.90? That's affordable! They sometimes have 'Get 4 for RM100' promotion so yeah, it's awesome! 

Anyway, I guess that's all for the review and I'll see you guys next post!

Au revoir!
