May 03, 2017 - Nisha Qasim -
Holika Holika is one of the most popular Korean brand for makeup and beauty care products. Their Aloe soothing gel is quite popular around the world for last couple of years which claims to have 99% original aloe extract. I know you might be thinking why not try the natural Aloe leaf instead of one which is packed in one corner of the world and had to fly to you after who knows how many days after. Well you are right if you can easily get your hands on it and can secure it for some days. However if you have busy life and extracting the gel from natural leaf is hard for you then you can try this. So lets see how good is it on its words.
There are multiple ways you can use this products for hairs, face and body which includes following.
- Moisture Cream
- Moisture/Soothing Pack
- Use for Eye Patch
- Small Areas Dedicated Soothing Patch
- After Shave
- Use for hair Essence
- Hair Treatment
- Body Soothing Gel
- Hand/Foot Essence
After application it leaves the skin smooth which can also be considered a good base for makeup. The foundation glides easily and you can mix it in your foundation to get more even application. You can also apply it as face pack for which apply generous amount on face as mask and leave for 15 to 20 minutes and then wipe the excessive amount. The effect is similar as you apply any hydrating sheet mask. For spot treatment you can apply it on the effected area and leave it as it is. It instantly soothes irritated or burning skin, the fact which i think is good to use it as after shave as well.
As it is recommended for hairs as well, you can use it to tame fly aways or apply it for itching on scalp because of dryness. If you are applying it as hair pack then wash it after 20 to 30 minutes but you can also use it lightly on damp hairs as hair essence which can also act as heat protection product. It is better to keep it in fridge for cooling effect.
All in all this is an amazing product which is versatile, lightweight, effective and not very costly. For summers it can be a savior for all skin and sooth the red or irritated skin.
