Battle of Aloe Gels : The Faceshop 99% Jeju Aloe VS Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel

Assalamualaikum and hi,
I want to do review on 2 aloe vera gels from Korean brands. Since I don't have gel moisturiser, so I just use aloe gel as the last step moisturiser.

Right: The faceshop Jeju Aloe 99%, Left: Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel

1. The Faceshop 99% Jeju Aloe
They contain 99% aloe gel. This one feels really good on skin, just rubbing in the products on your skin, it will absorb well. Thisw gel has cooling effect and make my skin really fresh during daytime. It's good to wear in hot and humid country like Malaysia. When your face becomes really hot, you can apply this to lower your facial skin's temperature. At first I don't like the fragrance. As time goes on, it's not a bother to me.

The Faceshop Jeju Aloe 99% ingredients

From the ingredients, they stated this aloe gel truly 99% extract from the leaf. What can I ask more. I don't care about the other ingredients listed, they must be low than 1%. I don't freak out about the alcohol because it's really really low. My skin will breakout with high percentage of alcohol. But with this one, my skin did not breakout at all.

2. Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel
Contain 93% of aloe vera gel. This a little bit runnier than TFS. Apply this during day time, my skin becomes oilier in the couple of minutes. And when I use this during night, my skin feels dry and tight. After that my skin get rashes and irritated. This one was not soothing at all.

Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel ingredients

I am excited to try this because of the ingredients are alcohol and fragrance free. The ingredient list is simple. It also contains lots of herbs extract which I don't care. Since then, I used this on my body. Body's skin are less sensitive, so why not slather this on my hands, arms, neck, tummy, legs. Does not have cooling effect.

 As you can see, I have TFS aloe gel in my routine as moisturiser. I tested a lots of moisturiser but most of them gave me irritation. I am always going back to TFS Aloe Gel. That does not mean high percentage are good for skin. Some skins can't tolerate for the high percentage, but they can accept for a lower percentage. Depends on a person's skin, which one suitable for them. Our skin's background history are totally different from each other. Innisfree and The Faceshop both are good brands that just based ingredients mainly on plant extracts.

See you another post. BYe. Wassalam
