Happy first day of May everyone! Let’s begin this month with a beauty review on everyone’s all-time favorite soothing gel.
It is summer from where I live: the sun has been pretty unforgiving since the summer began and for the past two months of summer, the city has been roasting in the sweltering heat of the day. To adapt to this scorching season, I switched some of my skincare products and went for those that would best suit the summer weather.
Currently, my favorite summer essential is the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. I use this product as a body lotion and as a moisturizer since I find my usual daily body serum a little too sticky for the season.
Today, I am excited to share my thoughts on this product and to vouch if this highly popular soothing gel really makes for a perfect summer skincare buddy.
Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel
Enriched with natural aloe vera, this soothing gel with California aloe vera can be used to mildly moisturize various parts of the body.
Apply a generous amount on face and body and spread evenly in light circular motion.
The Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel comes in a sturdy green-colored plastic tub. The tub contains 300 ml of product which can take forever to use up.
The product information is written in Korean and in English.
There is an inner plastic lid that separates the actual product from the top cover. I honestly find the inner lid quite bothersome and inconvenient as it keeps getting stuck on the cover.
The actual product comes in a clear thick gel. Once applied on the skin, the gel turns watery which makes it easy to be absorbed. The soothing gel has a light fresh aloe scent which I find so calming and relaxing.
Here is a swatch of the actual product.
I spread the product evenly onto my skin. The soothing gel feels cool and refreshing to the touch.
There is a slightly sticky feeling after application. But the stickiness is not a problem at all as it goes away quickly.
After the soothing gel is fully absorbed, my skin feels soft and smooth.
What I love most about this aloe vera soothing gel is that it’s very light on the skin and it’s fast-absorbing. On top of that, the aloe vera gel can be used for quite a number of purposes.

5 out of 5 stars
What I like:
- This soothing gel does an excellent job of providing moisture to the skin without the heavy sticky feeling, making it the ultimate skincare best friend this summer. It works wonders for sunburns too.
- It is lightweight and fast-absorbing.
- It smells very light and fresh.
- It retails at a very affordable price of PHP 180 at Althea Korea.
What I don’t like:
The packaging! I am not a fan of plastic tub containers as it can get pretty messy and inconvenient to scoop out the product. I recommend transferring the gel to a pump bottle for an easy, fuss-free dispensing.
Will I repurchase?
Yes, I cannot wait to hoard these!
Will I recommend?
Yes! I recommend the Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel to those who are looking for a fast-absorbing multi-purpose product that’s effective and easy on the budget.
