Review: Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel 

Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel Review

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.

Packaging

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.

Formula

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.

Style Korean Skincare Haul

Style Korean Skincare HaulI’m always on the lookout to try new skincare products that are both moisturising and good for acne-prone skin. On that note, I was super excited to receive these lovely skincare goodies from Style Korean.  In this Style Korean Skincare Haul I have products from Benton and Cosrx that are known for having lots of great skincare products including many aimed for acne prone skin types. I’ll be posting up a review for all these items later on my blog after trying them out for a good amount of time.

Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel

Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel

First up in this haul is the Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel which is aimed at those who have sensitive and trouble skin. The gel is said to contain 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 was so excited to try out this Benton Aloe Gel now that it’s winter and my skin is drier than usual, especially with the many hours I spend sitting in front of a heater! I love that this aloe gel is free of alcohol, water, parabens, mineral oil and other harmful ingredients, but instead only uses natural extracts and natural preservatives. I’ve already started using it for a couple days as a daytime moisturiser, and so far so good! The aloe gel is a clear coloured gel (not green, yay to no articial colours!) that is lightweight with only a slight and almost non-existent scent.

Benton Honest TT Tea Tree Mist

Benton Honest TT Mist

I love using a good face mist thoroughout the day, and usually like to pop one in my bag or on my desk. I like to spritz some face mist on my face whenever it’s feeling a little dry and in need of an extra moisture boost. I’m keen on trying this mist out as I’ve only really used the Avene Thermal Spring Water spray and as much as I love it, I want to try something new! This Benton Honest Line of products is about presenting honest ingredients that consumers can be assured of using on their skin. This TT (Tea Tree) Mist contains Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Water instead of water, Hyaluronic Acid and other botanical extracts to hyrdate the skin and have a cooling effect. This face mist is meant to help to ‘improve rough and damaged skin from stress and pollution’.

Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask

Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask

I love a good leave-in sleeping mask as they are great for giving your skin that extra bit of hydration. That being said, I have yet to find one that I truly love (drop me a comment if you know of one, would love to know!). Cosrx is such a well loved brand by many beauty bloggers and known for their acne-prone targeted skincare lines, so hopefully this Cosrx Honey Overnight Mask will not disappoint. This mask is enriched with over 85% propolis extract and natural bees wax to provide ‘intensive hyrdation with refreshing moisture’.
