Skin Type- Combination to Oily; Sensitive Skin – No
Aloe vera is a much loved beauty ingredient in our routine but it was fascinating to see Bamboo and Cucumber gel getting equal importance during my trip to South East Asia. The bug in me itched and hence I got the Bamboo gel (cucumber fragrance was bit overpowering for me).
Price – Rs 400/-(approx.) for 300ml
• A soothing gel with moisture infused gel-type texture that gives a moisture massage to skin with cooling, soothing effects

• A multi-use soothing gel that can be used on the face and body
My Experience with The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel:
The Damyang Bamboo gel comes in a huge tub packaging with all green theme. The details about the product are mentioned on the body. The tub comes with a protective shield which controls spillage. Considering the size of the tub it is definitely not travel-friendly. You need to de-pot it in a smaller tub if you wish to travel with it.
The texture is superb, just like aloe vera gel, but it spreads better. It is a multi-tasking product which can be used as a moisturizer and a mask, but only for the face. It is good for all skin types and suits sensitive skin as well.
On application it feels cool and relaxing. It spreads very easily but is not slippery. I love the fragrance of this. It is sweet but not nauseating; it is like fresh-sweet. I prefer using it as a mask, so I apply a thick layer of it on the face and let it absorb for some 20-30mins. If you want you can just keep it on but I prefer washing it off. It instantly makes the face look brighter; the dullness is gone and you end up looking and feeling fresh with the hydrated glow. You will agree with me when I say such cooling, hydrating products are boon for this climate.
I have been using it without any proper timing, like once in a week or anything as it is a blessing to me in this temperature. Speaking about the effectiveness of the product, the healthy glow is very much visible and hence it can be used as a mini facial before going out with friends or movie date. But sadly the effect is not long-lasting. It will not show results for more than a day or two. I would loved if it stayed on more but looking at the benefits and pricing, I am ready to overlook this con.
