I received the Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel from Style Korean a couple of weeks ago along with a few other skincare products shown in my Style Korean Skincare Haul post. It has been a while now since I started using it so thought it was a good time to do a review.
What is the Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel?
The Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel is for all skin types including those with sensitive and troubled skin. The aloe gel contains 80% Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice that is rich in polysaccharides (helps to hydrate and retain moisture in the skin) and 10% Propolis Extract (known to have soothing properties). I love that this Benton Aloe Gel uses natural extracts and natural preservatives, and is free of alcohol, water, parabens, mineral oil and other harmful ingredients.
The Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel comes in a nice clean and simple matte white box with all text printed in dark green. The container itself that holds the gel itself is a dark green soft plastic 100mL squeeze tube with a black cap and nozzle tip. I like the clean and minimalistic design of the packaging. The squeeze tube makes it easy to dispense the aloe gel.
The aloe gel is a clear coloured gel, not green, so yay to no artificial colouring. The gel is also fragrance-less. The slight scent of the gel I think comes naturally from the aloe juice, and fades away very quickly after applied to the skin. In terms of the texture, it is a very lightweight gel that absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving any oily or sticky feeling. The aloe gel also helps to soothe and calm the skin.
