The Benefits

Aloe Barbadensis: The goodness of Aloe Vera is well known and well documented. The Ancient Egypts called it the plant of immortality. On a personal note, I can still recall my auntie cutting off a fresh Aloe Vera leaf to lớn rub against a burn on my skin during my childhood in Vietnam. She convinced me that it was a skin healer! Aloe Vera is known lớn contain antioxidants, Vitamins B, C, niacinamide, fatty acids; it has anti-inflammatory và antibacterial properties, as well as naturally occurring salicylic acid. It has been used to lớn treat acne, hydrate dry skin, banish pigmentation, sooth sun burns và heal wounds amongst many other things.

Propolis: Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce from tree buds sap flows. When they combine the sap with their own discharges & beeswax, they create a sticky, greenish-brown sản phẩm used as a coating khổng lồ build their hives, as well as function as a natural disinfectant against bacteria. As well as possessing antibacterial và anti-inflammatory properties, propolis is a fantastic emollient and has been shown khổng lồ promote wound healing.

Glycerin: A humectant which helps skin stay hydrated, soft và smooth. It strengthens the skin barriers and leaves a healthy glow on your skin.

Performance

I like to use Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel as the last step in both morning and evening routines. I take a large pea size, pop some big chunks on any active spots or irritations và spread the rest on other areas on my face. I then carry on with other routines for the next 10-15 minutes, after that I gently dab until the remainder is absorbed into my skin.

You will be glad khổng lồ know that the gel does not have any scent khổng lồ it, great for those with sensitive skin. It feels extremely soothing. It can calm the stinging on my skin after vi-ta-min C serum application beautifully. Also I love how effective Aloe Propolis Gel can reduce any active inflammation or redness, we’re talking hours here.

There must be countless uses for Aloe Vera Gel (a little lượt thích Vaseline) due to its amazing benefits. I have used it as a soothing face mask và on minor cuts. I would certainly use it for any sun burns on my next get-away.

My experience

Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel definitely soothes & helps with inflammation. I love how lightweight it feels & the quick absorption. It hydrates extremely well without any greasy feel nor leaving any film behind. My skin feels smooth and supple after application.

On some days, I bởi find that Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel is not quite moisturising enough but this can be easily remedied by layering another facial oil on top. Below is a suggestive routine that I found on Style Korean. It is recommended that you can use Benton Snail Bee High content Steam Cream as the next step.
