I had been hearing the benefits of aloe vera gel since 2-3 years, but I was too lazy to take care of my skin around an year back and then, all of a sudden, I got so engrossed in make up that I never thought about my skin care properly (I am guilty for it, of course :-P). I was looking for a good aloe vera gel. My mom already has Patanjali Aloe vera gel. I wanted to try something different, so I got the aloe gel from Revayur.

Massage gently on clean skin till absorbed. Use daily for best results.
My Experience with Revayur Aloe Gel:
This gel is light green in color and is quite cool to touch. I generally like to refrigerate it to exaggerate the cooling effect it gives to my face. I have oily skin and I apply this gel daily when I come back from college and then daily at bed time. It has become a part of my CTM routine. I apply this even after bleaching my face to reduce the irritation and redness on my face. As claimed, it definitely relaxes inflamed skin. Its cooling effect helps to reduce the irritation and redness.
It gets absorbed easily on my face. I have oily skin and it doesn’t make my skin greasy. It forms a good night moisturiser for me, but in the day, I need to apply a heavy moisturiser to my face and then, I follow it up with this aloe gel after 3-4 hours. I need to apply a heavy moisturiser before this gel definitely because of the dryness caused by the winters. The moisturising effect and hydration provided by it will be enough in summers.
My skin feels very soft and supple after applying this gel. It definitely helps in healing my acne and decreasing the progress of active acne on my face. It has also decreased the formation of acne scars on my face. So, I would say I am really happy with all the results it has on my face. After using this gel, I am sure I won’t ever be lazy in using aloe vera gel my entire life.
The biggest complaint I have with this gel is that it contains so many chemicals and parabens. If I am not wrong, aren’t aloe vera gels supposed to be purely herbal instead of containing chemicals in it? I am sure there are many good aloe vera gels available in the market which won’t have chemicals in it. The two I remember right now are aloe vera gels from Patanjali and Fab India. In the end, I will say I definitely like using aloe gel on my face but to protect my skin from these unwanted chemicals, I will try an aloe vera gel without so many chemicals in it.
Pros of Revayur Aloe Gel:
- Heals my acne, prevents new acne and prevents acne scars on my face.
- Decreases irritation and redness on my skin after bleach.
- Keeps my skin soft and supple.
- Keeps my skin well hydrated.
- Doesn’t make my skin greasy.
- Gets instantly absorbed on my skin.
Cons of Revayur Aloe Gel:
- Can’t be used as a stand-alone moisturiser in winters.
- Too many chemicals in a product which is supposed to be chemical free.
3/5. (Though it works really well, I can’t give it a good rating because of parabens and chemicals in it).
Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Revayur Aloe Gel?
I will definitely repurchase aloe vera gel, but not from this brand. I would prefer my aloe vera gel to be chemical free.
