Review: Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel

Hello, cuties!

This is a product I’ve had for almost 6 months now, so I said it’s time I wrote a little about it. This was among my first korean skincare products and I was not dissapointed.

Neata, frumoaselor!

Acesta este un produs pe care il am de aproape 6 luni, asa ca e momentul perfect sa scriu despre el. Gelul de aloe vera a fost printre primele produse de skincare coreene pe care le-am achizitionat si nu am fost dezamagita.

Aloe Vera is a plant with a lot of uses in cosmetics and its gel is a well known remedy for burns. Since it’s gentle enough to be used on burns, that means it’s gentle enough to use on your face.

Aloe Vera este o planta cu diverse utilizari in cosmetice si gelul de aloe vera este un remediu cunoscut pentru arsuri. Din moment ce este suficient de delicat pentru a fi folosit pe arsuri, e suficient de bland pentru a fi folosit pe fata.

Usage/ Folosire:

Aloe Vera Gel Usage

Oficially, the product is recommended to be used in 8 base cases.

Oficial, produsul este recomandat ca bun de folosit in 8 cazuri de baza.

  1. Face mask/ Masca de fata

I used it as a face mask. I noticed it de-puffed my face and some reduced redness.

Am folosit-o ca masca de fata si am observat ca mi-a dezumflat un pic fata si a redus din roseata.

  1.  Moisturizer

I sometimes use it as a base before applying a facial serum at night. What I noticed is that you have to use a minimal amount since when layering multiple products over it it may cause flaking.

Il folosesc cateodata ca baza inainte de a incepe rutina zilnica de seara de skincare. Ce am observat este ca trebuie aplicat foarte putin, intrucat deoarece ramane ca o pelicula foarte subtire pe fata se poate exfolia.

  1. After shaving/ Dupa epilare

I didn’t use the product after shaving since I know 1 ingredient is alcohol. So I can’t guarantee that’ll work.

Nu am folosit produsul dupa epilare pentru ca are ca ingredient alcool. Deci nu stiu daca merge.

  1. Hair gel

I didn’t use this product as a hair gel per se, but I did put some on an area in my scalp which was red and flaky. I can’t say it worked wonders, but I guess it hydrated it a little.

Nu am folosit produsul ca gel de par, dar am pus putin pe o zona a scalpului care se iritase foarte tare si se cojea de la un sampon. Nu pot spune ca a facut minuni, dar presupun ca a hidratat si racorit putin zona.

  1. Eye pack

I like using this product for my undereye area because it feels so refreshing and cooling. I recommend you try it like this.

Imi place sa-l folosesc pentru zona de sub ochi pentru ca este ataaat de racoritor si se simte foarte bine pe piele. Recomand folosirea lui asa.

  1. Nail treatment/ Tratament de unghii

I didn’t use it as a nail treatment. It’s on my todo list.

Nu l-am folosit ca tratament pentru unghii. E pe lista mea de todo.

  1. Body moisturizer / Moisturizer de corp

I didn’t use it as body moisturizer, but I used it on my neck. Again, very nice and refreshing.

Nu l-am folosit drept crema de corp. dar l-am folosit pe gat si decolteu. Din nou, foarte revigorant.

  1. For sunburn or irritation / Pentru arsuri sau iritatii

I didn’t use it for sunburns or really really irritated skin because I read some review saying that the alcohol in it makes it worse and I don’t wanna risk it. It’s ok for mild irritations, but I don’t recommend it for severe ones.

Nu l-am folosit pentru arsuri sau iritatii majore pentru ca am citit pe makeupalley ca alcoolul din compozitie nu ajuta si nu vreau sa risc sa faca zona si mai iritata sau sa usture. E ok de folosit pentru iritatii minore, dar nu il recomand pentru probleme mai grave.

Opinion/ Parere:

Aloe Vera Gel consistency

Where should I begin?

The smell is so nice. Very refreshing and natural.

Color: transparent.

De unde sa incep? Mirosul e foarte racoritor si natural.

Culoarea: transparenta.

Consistency: so freaky. In the tub it’s a wiggly gel but when you apply it it dissolves like water into your skin.

It feels very nice on the skin.

The container is huge. 300 ml lasts for a lifetime.

Consistenta: atat de ciudata. In container este ca un gel dar la aplicare se dizolva ca apa si intra in piele.

Se simte foarte bine pe piele.

Containerul este urias. 300 ml tin o viata.

Brilliant to use in the summer (just put it in the fridge and prepare for the goodness). I don’t know for winter though.

Perfect de folosit pentru vara (pus la frigider este genial). Nu stiu daca e la fel de perfect de folosit iarna datorita efectului de racorire, dar in rest efectul este acelasi.

PROS:

  • the scent / mirosul
  • the formula / formula fara parabeni
  • easily absorbed / se absoarbe usor
  • refreshing to use when it’s hot outside / racoritor pentru timpul cald
  • huge quantity in the tub / cantitatea uriasa din tub
  • multiple purpose / poate fi folosit in mai multe feluri
  • perfect for all skin types / perfect pentru toate tipurile de piele

CONS:

  • not good for layering because it may flake / nu e bun pentru a fi folosit sub alte creme ca baza pentru ca se poate exfolia
  • if you use too much it leaves your face sticky / daca pui prea mult iti lasa fata lipicioasa
  • it has alcohol, so you can’t really apply it on irritated or burned skin / are alcool deci nu e bun de aplicat pe pielea iritata sau arsa
  • not enough to use on it’s own / nu e suficient de hidratant pentru a fi folosit de unul singur

Price/ Pret: ~8$ ebay

Would I buy it again/ L-as cumpara din nou? Yes/ DA.

Do I recommend it/ Il recomand?

Yes. If you wanna try new things. Very nice versatile product. Suited for both dry and oily skin.

Da. Daca vreti sa incercati lucruri noi. Un produs foarte versatil si interesant. Perfect pentru toate tipurile de ten.
