Flippants Asks :
Recently Jomol has reviewed an aloe vera gel and then I realized I have an aloe vera gel at home brought in Walgreens USA( was brought to soothe an insect bite actually ).
Below is the picture for reference:
It is cooling menthol aloe vera gel and has the following ingredients in it.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Water, SD Alcohol 40, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Methylparaben, Benzophenone-4, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Fragrance, Yellow 5, Blue 1.
Jomol in her review mentioned that she used aloe gel on face as moisturizer during summers, I want to use this gel too but I am not sure if it can be used on face because on the tube it’s mentioned for sun burns, minor cuts and bruises.
I have used it once and it’s like applying zandu balm but doesn’t sting. It’s just cooling and refreshing for few seconds. But I have to tell you it works as a superb toner and makes my skin tight. But I am worried about the ingredients( esp. alcohol) and if it causes any damage to skin on regular usage. I tried it on my under eye area too and it was moisturizing, light and cooling
So just wanted to know from people who are using these gels to check the ingredients list and let me know if it’s of similar kind and whether it can be used on face or not.
P.S. I have a normal skin .
