This is my very first post for IMBB and I am oh so excited. Green Leaf gel is an ayurvedic product. I have been using it for quite some time, so I thought this should be my first post for the blog. It contains 90% w/w Aloe Vera, which means it is as good as using the plant itself. I have an oily skin and thanks to the heat and pollution, a zit is never too far away. Sun makes my skin go red while this gel soothes the skin and carrying this with me saves me a lot of trouble.
As you can see, the gel inside the bottle looks green in colour, but it is not highly pigmented.
When you take it out, it appears rather colourless. I have tried other Aloe Vera gels available in the market and I don’t like that they have strong fragrance. This gel has a very mild herbal kind of smell, which doesn’t linger for a long while.
What the Gel Claims:
Meant for acne, rash, minor skin eruptions, sunburn, minor cuts, wounds and allergies.
My Experience with Brihan’s Aloe Vera Gel:
I am talking from personal experience, the gel does all that it claims and a lot more! You can use it at night on your eyes and in few days, you’ll notice the dark circles are fading. I am a night owl and dark circles are constant companions/enemies. If you have an oily skin like me, you can use it instead of a lotion for moisturizing, but it is not sufficient for winters. If your skin is tanned, you can use it and the skin tone will become lighter, but don’t expect it in a day. Cooling sensation of the gel makes it ideal for use in the heat!
Rs. 75 for 125 g bottle (it has a shelf life of 3 years.)
Where Can You Get It:
I get it from a shop which stocks cosmetics, but you can also get it from a shop, which sells medicine. It is hard to find it in the bigger stores.
- Great value for money.
- It has multiple uses, so it will never go waste sitting on the shelf!
- Suitable for all the skin types.
Don’t use too much of the gel, it has a bitter taste which sort of seeps through the skin.
