Aloe has many healing and soothing properties and it is commonly used to treat burns, mild bruises, acne and skin irritation. It is also quite hydrating and can frequently be found in many beauty products to nourish, detoxify and protect. I have purchased aloe leafs for gel extraction, homemade face masks and serums and if you spend a lot of time soaking up the sun this vitamin rich plant can help treat red, peeling, sensitive skin.
If you don’t want to go through the messy process of scooping out your own aloe gel THEFACESHOP has released a fabulous Aloe Emergency Kit conveniently packaged in a cute drawstring bag for travel. The collection includes a tub of 99% fresh aloe gel which you can use all over the body to moisturize and alleviate dry skin. It is also infused with chamomile, lavender, grapefruit, sage, basil, rosemary, lemon and more! The consistency is a bit like hair gel without that yucky stickiness and it has a light, pleasant scent. Just a little goes a long way and it distributes evenly over the skin with a quick absorbing formula that feels cool and refreshing! This is a great way to recuperate after a long day at the beach.
Also included the kit is the Aloe Cleansing Foam Face Wash for all skin types. This mild botanical formula is loaded with skin loving natural ingredients like thyme, sage, papaya, willow bark, horse chestnut and grapefruit. It provides an invigorating clean to remove dirt, build up, impurities and makeup while leaving skin lightly moisturized.
If you love a pampering facial treatment like I do then the aloe mask enriched with extracts, raw ingredients, minerals and nutrients is a relaxing escape at the end of a long, scorching day. The mask is soaked in concentrated, luxurious serum to revitalize and calm skin in just 10-12 mins for a healthier looking complexion. This particular aloe extract is from Jeju Island and is known as one of Korea’s 7 wonders of nature!
The kit makes a great addition to your daily or weekly beauty routine and retails for just $16.00 which is a good deal for all the wonderful plant based ingredients! You can find it by clicking HERE.
