Four ways to use the Aloe Vera Gel of Nature’s Republic

Nature’s Republic Aloe Vera gel has been one of the well known — or famous — skin care product today so I tried it out to know what is so special about this product.

I got mine from a reseller at Angel’s Fashion Studio for P245. I didn’t get it from Nature’s Republic boutique because it always gets sold out on their stores. Anyways, Angel’s Fashion Studio sells legit items, it’s located in Mendiola near LRT Legarda station behind JRS Express, check their store out for beauty items and fashionable clothes.

So going back to the NR’s Aloe Vera Soothing Gel, I tried this product to further moisturize my skin because skin dryness has been one of my major problems aside from removing blemishes and acne marks.

There are a lot of fake copies of NR’s Aloe Vera Soothing Gel so make sure you get yours from an authorized reseller, legit store or the store of Nature’s Republic itself.

The product is purely gel. It’s texture is like the common gel hand santizer, gel kind fluid that eventually melts into a water kind fluid in time. It doesn’t feel heavy when you apply it on your face unlike the common moisturizers and it only takes a few minutes before my skin absorbs this product.

I only use two to three dots of this gel to cover my whole face. Napakatipid gamitin and to think that it’s packaging comes big, I think one cylinder can last for 6-9 months or maybe even a year since di naman ako makapal maglagay and it’s kinda heavy sa face if you’ll put a lot.

Moreover, I’ll share to you the four ways I use this product.

1. Nature’s Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel as Moisturizer. I use this product after applying my toner every night as a moisturizer. Applying two to three dots, spreading it across my face and waiting for my skin to absorb its nutrients and minerals, charot!

2. Nature’s Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel as Primer. One thing this product does to my skin is to tighten my pores for hours after application. It also keeps the oil of my face balanced making it makeup-ready for the day. After using Celeteque Facial Wash and Celeteque Hydration Toner, I apply this NR’s Aloe Vera soothing gel and then I wait for it to dry on my face for about 5-8 mins before I start applying my Nlighten CC cushion and Sophie Paris Cheek Tint. After then, my light make up would last the whole day.

3. Nature’s Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel as Eye Gel. The product is 92% Aloe Vera gel so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to store it inside our refrigerator and then use it around my eyes when its cold to relax my eyes and moisturize my eye circles.

4. Nature’s Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel as Soothing Gel. Its product name says it. You can use this product on your angry acne spots to lessen its swelling and redness overnight.

This product is very organic and I guess hiyang naman ako dito because it really moisturizes my skin and tightens my pores.

REVIEW: Celeteque Hydration moisturized my dry skin

Dry skin has been one of my biggest problems aside from acne so every time I go to the mall, I really scrutinize the products on the face care section to find the best remedy for my dry skin.

They say toner is really the key so I tried tons of toners for my face but nothing really worked. I tried Eskinol Lemon that says it controls oil of the skin, prevents acne without drying out, I tried the derma toners like Porcelana toner that gives you a korean porcelain skin daw. I tried Glycolic toners from Shadylab but jeez, they all dry out my skin like hell.

But everything changed when I came across Celeteque’s Hydration toner and Celeteque Facial Wash. I tried these products by buying their travel kit from Watson’s for only P149, it includes mini Hydration toner bottle, mini Hydration facial wash tube and mini facial moisturizer.

It’s looks so cute with the mini tubes and bottles and it’s price isn’t that scary for a student like me. I tried their small travel kit because ayoko naman na maginvest sa new face products and feel bad kapag nalaman kong hindi pala ako hiyang noh.

I tried the toner and the facial wash for a month. I didn’t use the moisturizer yet because I wanted to focus on the effect of the facial wash and toner first and man, this toner is a magic!

My skin turned soft, yung dryness level ng skin ko swiftly shifted into a soft baby skin kind (hindi ito joke). It actually works like magic because it balances the oil of my skin, it doesn’t make my skin overly oily or overly dry — it’s perfectly moist and soft.

How to use? Just wash your face with the facial wash and then dry it up with a clean towel before applying the toner using a cotton. Do this twice a day, morning after you wake up and evening before you go to bed.

My skin is not the artista skin that’s pore-less and super mega smooth so if my selfie doesn’t impress you then sorry lol!

I don’t have any make up in that pic and I already washed my face but my Sophie Paris’ Magic Pink (READ: I just tried Sophie Pink Cream Cheek Tint) is just giving me those pinkish cheek.

But for normal girls like me, I really recommend Celeteque’s Facial Wash 100mL (P135) and Hydration Toner Alcohol Free 125mL (P129.75) . About the Celeteque Facial Moisturizer, I think it’s just optional because the wash and the toner already controls your skin’s oil level, no need for the moisturizer in my opinion.

It’s all effective in making your skin soft and moisturized yet its price won’t hurt you especially if you’re just a student like me na walang budget for friggin’ Cetaphil packs, Laneige or whatsoever.

I’m just not sure if this Celeteque Hydration series helps in preventing acne breakouts, it’s for me to find out, I guess. But all in all, this has been the best face care product I’ve tried in terms of quality and price.

UPDATE 01/14/2019: If you’re suffering acne breakouts, I won’t recommend this Celeteque set because it’s too mild to fight acnes.
