Green Leaf Pure Aloe Vera Skin Gel Review | Ayurvedic Multi Purpose Skincare Must-Have | Beauty Review | Indian Lifestyle Fashion Blogger

Aloe Vera Gel = A Must- Have for every problematic skin type!

And when it comes to problematic skin, who better than me? :P Sometimes dry like a desert, sometimes oily like a petrol pump, almost always filled with little pimples/ rashes/ old acne scars and what not, welcome to the maze called my facial skin. As I progress in the 3rd decade of my life, my skin is getting increasingly mysterious! In midst of all this, Aloe Vera gel is like a stable friend I can always rely on.


I had first chanced upon Green Leaf Pure Aloe Vera Skin Gel almost 8 years ago, at some exhibition. It wasn't a product that was advertised heavily, and the same is the case today. Yet I remember the lady at the exhibition counter persuaded me to try it once and return it if I did not like it, and I was impressed by her confidence. Then I used the product and haven't stopped since. Sometimes, just to mix it up, I use Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel too but honestly I like Green Leaf better :)

Packaging
 of Green Leaf Pure Aloe Vera Skin Gel  is very simple, in a big round bulky jar. The gel looks beautiful with that bright sparkling green color. I know the color is added because pure aloe vera gel is not that green but it is very small in quantity and it has never harmed me. 

Ingredients list simply reads Aloe Vera 90% with preservatives and added color. 

Claims are nothing miraculous, just that it can be used for acne, rash, minor skin eruptions, sunburn, minor cuts, wounds and skin allergies. 

Availability is not very common, I have not seen it in stores like Big Bazaar, but it is available in exhibitions, in several random stores and online on Amazon for Rs. 345 for 500 grams

Quantity is very good, lasts for 3 months even when used on face and neck everyday twice. Very Value for money!


Usage - Feels cool to touch and apply. A little goes a long way. The gel is not very runny nor very thick, it needs 2 minutes of mild massage on my skin to seep in. It does not provide moisturization, rather it soaks up all the extra oil on my combination skin and provides a smooth base. If I use up a lot, it adds a layer like a face mask on my face. I cleanse my skin and then immediately put it on every morning and then wash it off after 1 hour. Another way to use it is to apply it at night and then sleep. It can be used on face, body, on pimples, on scars as spot treatment, around eyes, basically any problematic area.

Effect - Honestly, do NOT expect miracles. It is a cooling gel. So it instantly calms down skin. It heals sunburns. It also helps in fading old scars. It shrinks pimples. BUT it does everything slowly. Nothing is done overnight. A minimum of 15-20 days is required to see any visible changes. The best thing though is that it does NOT irritate my ultra-sensitive skin or lead to any kind of rashes. For those people who cannot use any beauty product or skincare product because nothing suits them, THIS is the miracle. Green Leaf Aloe Vera suits every skin type, calming down the problematic areas, smoothing and giving a glow on regular usage. Say bye-bye to pimples, eruptions, scars by religiously using it.

My sister had horrible acne on her shoulders some years ago. They left behind huge dirty scars. I helped to slather this gel on her shoulders every night for 2 months and trust me, those scars faded by 70%. Yes, it took time but it actually worked. This is why I always keep a big tub of Green Leaf Aloe Vera Gel on my desk at all times. It is a multi-purpose beauty/skincare product that can be used by anyone, any time, anywhere :)
