Just Herbs Aloe Vera Facial Massage Gel: Price, Review & Where to Buy!

Greetings Readers,

And I am back with another Aloe Vera Gel review! 😂😂
A full-fledged skincare always consists of a three step regime which is known as CTM. Lately, the importance of moisturization has been the talk of the town. Stands busted the myth that a moisturizer needs to be skipped in case of an oily skin type person. On top of that the dryness of the winters! It is still easy to experiment with body lotions but for a facial moisturizer, you cannot go in for every or any brand. Since facial skin is comparatively sensitive, you do need to keep in mind the behaviour it poses.

The one mistake that is commonly committed is to assume that body and facial skin would fall under the same type. This is never the case! So, avoid slathering your body lotions to hydrate your face. 
Keeping these things in mind, let’s move forward to a facial moisturizer that I received in my November 2016 Fab Bag. It’s from the brand Just Herbs which produces organic products using Ayurvedic herbs collected from the lands of India. The name of the brand stands for simplicity and purity. So without further adieu, let’s begin. ➤➤

Aloe vera inhibits the over production of enzymes responsible for the breakdown of the collagen-elastin matrix of the skin and provides protection against sun’s UV rays, clears away blemishes, while cucumbers restore the natural moisturising factor(NMF) by delivering vitamins and moisture to the deepest layers of sun-exposed skin. Aloevera and soy lecithin provides nourishment, stimulating the skin’s metabolic functions and combats free radicals to prevent the effects of oxidative skin damage.

Packaging: This gel comes in a plastic transparent round jar with a screw open golden coloured lid. The packaging is pretty simple and some may not like the fact that the fingers ought to be dipped inside for taking out the product.

My Experience:
I have to be really careful when it comes to moisturizers because not all things suit my facial skin. Some of them cause redness, itching and small bumps which evade immediately if treated asap! Since this one does not look exactly like a gel, I was sceptical as cream based products often react to my skin. 😓 Eventually I placed aside my doubts and realized that the consistency isn’t too thick or too runny; somewhere amid a cream and gel. Therefore, it does hydrate the skin better than a gel but does not leave behind greasiness of a cream. In short, you get the best of the both world. 😉 It gets absorbed within the skin very easily and the fragrance is kinda sweet. Can’t tell exactly, ‘cause the Delhi ki sardi took a toll on me and I am endowed with cold! :/ It does not make your skin break out and I usually top it off on a cleansed skin after I apply the Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera gel. Though the direction states that you need to wash away the excess, but there’s really no need of it I felt. A little goes a long way. You can also mix your foundation within a small dollop of this gel, swirl it well and apply for a moisturized everyday makeup base. 
Pros:
   ·   Made with 98.2% natural ingredients and spared of parabens, SLES, etc.
   ·   Transparent packaging for viewing the amount of content left
   ·   Spreads easily
   ·   Consistency combines that of cream and gel
   ·   Quick absorption within the skin
   ·   Does not leave behind excess oil
   ·   No breakouts caused

Cons:
   ·   Price point

Final Verdict: If you get a chance, do try it out. Although the price definitely is a negative aspect and the maximum discount you can avail would still be somewhere around 400 bucks.

Rating: 4 out of 5
