Korean Skincare Routine – Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel
Today I will be sharing my second most favorite product from Benton Skincare range which is essentially not a part of their 6 Step Korean Skincare Regime. It is best to go for this Aloe Vera gel if you don’t want to add layers of moisturizers on your skin especially during the day, so you can either use this as the only thing or if you would like to follow Korean Skincare Regime use this as a 4th Step ( after Essence application) for best results. Let’s checkout what is so good about this, Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel.

The product contains 80% of Aloe barbadenis leaf juice which has high content of polysaccharide, and10% of Propolis Extract to prevent any skin damage. Also Propolis Extract is well known for skin relaxation that leads to relief of skin stress and skin moisturizing.

My experience with Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel:
Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel is a clear gel with medium thin consistency which spreads quickly and within seconds it goes into the skin without leaving behind any residue. The texture is super thin and it isn’t sticky or slick as natural aloe vera which makes it super easy to work with.
If you have used natural Aloe Vera you will know that it doesn’t have any color either so I am happy that this is a clear gel. I cant tell you how much I hate those green tinted gels that claims to be Aloe Vera gels but contains only traces of Aloe Vera Extract and only filled with harmful chemicals and preservatives.
The formula is one the best I have seen around with 80% of Aloe vera juice which leaves very less space for anything else. So, you can reap most of the benefits of using natural aloe vera without any mess or stickiness that natural Aloe Vera has.
Results: It has a nice hydrating feel which works well during summer days when one can’t bear any cream based product on face but still need to cater to the dry area on the skin.This is one the best quality Aloe Vera Gel I have seen around with its light weight texture and soothing properties that is going to work for all skin types alike.
Some Cherry on the top is the formula is free from parabens, mineral oil, alcohol, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrance, artificial colouring basically all the harmful chemicals that can damage your skin.
Recommendation: Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel has a clear appearance with light non sticky texture that glides beautifully on skin and gets absorbed quickly without leaving any residue behind. It can work as a moisturizer for Oily skin because it nourishes skin without feeling heavy. Also, it can help in soothing sensitive or itchy skin because of the Aloe Vera content and anti-bacterial properties. I have a dry skin but I absolutely love it during summer days though I have layer it with heavy moisturizer in winters. It is an absolute must have for me and if you are plan to buy just one thing from Benton Range, I will suggest to pick this up (and the essence as well). Highly recommended!
