BATTLE OF THE ALOE VERA SOOTHING GELS

image

Hello everyone.  It’s been quite a while since the last time that I made a review.  I am really kind of busy with many things. For the meantime, while I’m currently on my vacation here in Korea, I kind of have more free time than the usual.  Mommy duties is lesser because there’s no classes.  (You get what I mean?:))
This review is about aloe vera soothing gel.  It’s been all over instagram now so I’m really eager to grab one and try it out.  So when I had the chance, I got myself the Nature Republic 92%Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. I was inlove at first used.  It’s so refreshing and moisturizing at the same time.  Plus my skin feels so smooth and radiant the next day.  I also tried using this on my husband’s face and he was so happy with the result.  He was like ” How come you didn’t told me about this?  I should have bought it before so that I didn’t have to buy toners and all.”  Hahaha!😂  He really loved it that he’s giving up his toner and lotion for his face.  (I’m just lucky because it’s all gonna be MINE!)  My husband isn’t really vain.  He just need to moisturize his face because the weather here in Korea is freezing and it’s drying.  It really is! He said this aloe alone is all good for his face. He said doesn’t need much.
Going back.  So while browsing my instagram I saw holika holika’s aloe soothing gel and their packaging is eye-catching.  I actually saw it when I went to Myeongdong but I already bought the Nature Republic’s so I just pretended I didn’t saw it.😂 (snob)😂😂😂
Everyday and everynight I apply the aloe soothing gel on my face and my husband’s ofcourse. He hates the icky feeling of touching stuffs like this so I’m willing to oblige. He said he have to buy aloe for himself. So I said I’m giving him a tub, but he was like is there something like a squeeze tub? So I introduced him the Holika Holika Aloe Gel and he was amazed with the packaging. He said it was really cute and decent. So there’s no way he’s not getting one for himself. Hahaha! He was like a child who wants to have a candy that much. So when we went out for our grocery shopping he purchased it asap. So now I’m doing a comparison for you guys. All thanks to him.

PACKAGING:
Personally, Holika Holika has a more decent and hygenic packaging than Nature Republic. It comes in a squeeze tub so you are not touching everything with your hands unlike the Nature Republic wherein you get to dip your hands to get the product which is not really hygenic ofcourse. Nature Republic comes in a big round tub. It also has an inner cap inside to secure the packaging so it’s clean when you open it. There is no spatula inside. Holika Holika comes in a aloe vera-shaped container which is really nice. Plus you get a control on the amount of product you need with Holika Holika.
Holika Holika WINS!

CONSISTENCY:
When it comes to consistency, Nature Republic looks more watery than Holika Holika. It has a clearer texture. Holika Holika is more sticky than Nature Republic. Because it’s 99% aloe while Nature Republic is only 92% aloe.
Nature Republic WINS!

SCENT:
This is what it looks like when spread out on my skin. You can see the difference if you look at it but you wouldn’t feel any difference if you are using it. Personally, I like the smell of Nature Republic. It has a stronger scent of Aloe which is more appealing to me. Which is I don’t quite understand why because the 99% aloe should smell more like an aloe vera than the 92% one. Did you get my point? Well, I hope you do.
Nature Republic WINS!

PRICE:
Holika Holika
Price: ₩5,900 or $5.19
(if bought in Korea)
Size: 250ml

Nature Republuc
Price: ₩4,400 or $3.87
(if bought in Korea)
Size: 300 ml
Nature Republic is way cheaper than Holika Holika plus you get more product for a lesser price.
Nature Republic WINS!

FEELS:
There’s really not much of comparison with these two when it comes to what it felt like to your skin. I apply both on my face at the same time and I don’t feel any difference at all. Both have a cooling effect and is easily absorbed by the skin. Both are not heavy nor greasy. It both leaves your face smooth and soft to touch. No any allergic reactions on me.
IT’S A TIE FOR THIS ROUND!

FINAL VERDICT:
Overall, Nature Republic wins! I personally like it than Holika Holika. I think I might just transfer it on a squeeze or pump bottle. That would be a wise decision, I guess.:) What works for me might not work on you. Especially those with sensitive skin. You just gotta go and see it for yourself.

Thanks for taking time to read again. Until next time. Bye.😘
