As a lot of you already know by now I am a sucker for aloe products and I always use aloe gels for a lot of different reasons like sunburn, moisturizer, hair etc. This one is a aloe vera gel but it also has propolis in it which is good for acne (fighting it that is), moisturizing, soothing etc. I will do a separate post on propolis later on so I will not go in deep in this post. Propolis is basically glue used by bees.
I only received a small sample size of this in one of my Bomibags so, I will only make a first impression on it since it is simply too little to give a good review on it.
This is a lotion, which is basically a light moisturizer. I use it as a first moisturizer, but if you have oilier skin you might manage with this as your only moisturizer.
To my skin this is not doing much. It is moisturizing but my skin is super dry and I could not manage with this on its own, instead I use it as a first moisturizer, that means that I add another moisturizer on top of this. If you are using a good sunblock during the day this might also be enough for your skin. It really all comes down to what your skin likes and what it needs. My skin is demanding moisture to the point to ridiculous.
I received a 5 ml sample in one of my Bomibags so I will only make a first impression of it since 5 ml is way too little to say anything for sure.
I always tend to have a problem with this series, the whole series smells like sweat to me. This is the fourth product in this series and I have the same problems with all of them.
I received an 8 gr sample size and had the opportunity to test it out, but I haven’t been able to test it enough for a full review. I usually want at least a month to be able to truly know if I like it or not.
According to others the pH level is quite high, around 8 or 9 which is not very good if you have dry or sensitive skin. I really had too small amount to see how it acted over time on my skin. According to Benton themselves they claim that the pH is between 5-7. But I really can’t say since I don’t have any pH testers myself… Yet.
I had huge problems with the smell of this one, not that it would stop me from using it, but I actually smelled sweat when applying. I heard from a reader that she actually smelled chlorine, so maybe this is what’s causing my nose to misbehave. And believe me, I have smelled my armpits so many times, making sure it is not me.
