Let's face it, there are some girls who aren't really into skincare, even though they know that it must be done regularly to achieve healthy and radiant skin. I know someone who's like that- me! And I know I'm not the only one. For all the girls who are like me out there, have you ever gotten to that point that you just want to get rid of all your skin imperfections for good?
Then that hit me. I had to do something about my recurring pimples and clogged pores. But where do I start? Just then, I heard about the Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel Lotion from the popular beauty YouTuber Anne Clutz. She looks very convincing and as one of her viewers and subscribers, I became interested in this product from Fresh Skinlab which she highly recommended. So why not give it a try?
I rushed to the nearest Watsons store and bought the very last one of the Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel Lotion before it was declared out-of-stock. I never felt so lucky! With a smile on my face, I became determined to start my skincare routine using the aloe-based gel lotion. I think it's the perfect time to give my skin a little pampering after years of skincare indifference.
A Closer Look At the Product
The Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel Lotion is an aloe-based, soothing gel lotion that refreshes and moisturizes the skin. It is especially helpful for sunburnt skin. On top of that, it also has antioxidant properties to help in delaying the aging process of your skin as well as antimicrobial benefits which can treat pimples and acne.
The Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel Lotion is packed in tubs and it's quite convenient for me as you just have to scoop out the exact quantity you need to apply to your face. The tub has a transparent bottom so you can see the gel lotion inside. The necessary details, such as the ingredients and instructions are written around the circumference of the product. I like the subtle blue color of the top cover because it (and other light blue-colored things) are appealing to my eyes and brings relaxation to my mind.
I personally like the smell of the Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel Lotion. It has that clean scent and some floral notes but it's not too overpowering. So if strong smells tend to bother you, I can assure you that you have nothing to worry about with this gel lotion.
For me, it feels more like a lotion rather than a gel, unlike the other member of the product line, the Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel. What I like about this is that its texture is rich and thick but lightweight and surprisingly, it dries into a matte finish.
My Honest Review
As what was suggested in the packaging, I stored the Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel Lotion in the refrigerator. You can always choose to store it anywhere but I highly recommend putting it in the fridge as its coolness paired with the soothing effect of the product will give instant refreshment. When the cold penetrated my skin after massaging it for a while, I felt like my pores became cleaner and tighter. However, it did cause a slight stinging sensation on my skin especially in those areas with pimples and the sides of my nose.
I decided to apply the product every night and after a bath. When I first applied it at night, I woke up the next day with soft and supple skin. After I took a bath in the morning, I applied it as a moisturizer before I used my good ol' face cream. I was surprised that my skin cream glided smoothly on my face and blended well.
After using it for a few days, I noticed that my big pimple dried out and so did the other "baby" pimples. Of course, the pimple scars are still there and I know they won't be letting go of me that easily. Nevertheless, my skin remained soft and smooth in my daily usage of the product. Also, I haven't had any breakouts; a somewhat surprising phenomenon as I usually develop pimples once I try new beauty products, justifying my beauty care indifference.
The Final Verdict
Overall, I find the Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel Lotion to be worth a try especially for those people with quite sensitive skin like me or those who don't want a complicated skincare routine. This product served as a night cream, moisturizer, and pimple buster in my case. Because of that, I strongly recommend the Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel Lotion.
However, please bear in mind that the same product could have a different result on another person. So if you ever develop more skin imperfections rather than having them healed, stop using the product as you might not be what they call "hiyang."
So that ends my review. Have a good day!
