Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel Review:
I first got the trial size 30ml from a promotion campaign upon buying makeup products for my friend’s birthday gift at Innisfree showroom. My experience with this aloe gel has been “soothing”, just like the product name. I love it so much I decided to get the full size 300ml right after I finished the mini size.
Innisfree is a well-known Korean cosmetics brand, which offers a wide range of beauty products varying from skincare to make up products. Currently I am not much into doing make up and I only focus on recovering my natural skin barrier. That’s why I am quite attracted by natural skincare products. I have already used Innisfree sheet mask line and acknowledged their efforts to improve the product to meet demand of the well-educated customers, who are cautious about what’s there in the ingredient lists. Getting back to the aloe revital soothing gel, I am surprised why it did not receive much attention from the public or advertising elsewhere, since the ingredient list is amazingly friendly for every skin type and the price point is totally affordable.

Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel Review:
My skin adapts well to natural stuffs. However, there are some natural products that my skin likes and there some that it does not. This aloe gel would go to the first option. To be honest, I have no complaints or drawback analysis whatsoever to this product. Only good feelings.
Girl, I have been into taking care of my skin recently. Therefore, I’ve tried many products, increasing the chances of my skin irritation. And I did. I remember one time I tried a carbonated mask and after using it, I felt like my skin barrier was ripped off completely. My skin was so dry, itchy and even stingy. I did not know how to fix this, then I saw the mini bottle of the aloe gel.
I know that aloe gel will help soothing irritated skin. I applied it on my face right away. 5 minutes later, the irritation was gone. Next morning, I felt the irritating feeling completely disappear. Ever since, I decided to look up the product ingredient list to know exactly what helped soothing my skin. I was happy to see that lovely ingredient list: only good and natural extracts are used. No alcohol (a common ingredient to add in aloe vera products, I don’t know why) is the most notable to talk about this product.
Moreover, in top 3 we can see Madecassoside. Wow, this explains a lot. Do you know that madecassoside is one of four principal bioactive compounds in the plant extract Centella asiatica – the great ingredient that helps curing wounded or damaged skin.
One double-blind study has shown even small amounts of this compound (0.1% in one case) combined with vitamin C have antioxidant benefit when applied to skin, and serve as an antioxidant in its own right. Studies also show it can it is non-sensitizing and can help revitalize skin’s surface.
After checking on the ingredient list, I took a closer look at the absorption ability of this gel. Since it is a gel texture, it should not leave sticky or greasy finish. After about 30 seconds – 1 minute applying the gel on my skin surface, it is absorbed so well into my skin and leaves no shine or tacky feeling. It is as if your skin has just drunk some aloe vera juice.
Moreover, I really adore the tube packaging. The full size is quite big (its capacity is 300ml!). However, don’t worry about the risk that you may get too much product more than needed. The packaging design is supposed to let minimum product exposed to the open air; otherwise the natural goodie will be quickly oxidized and lose the effectiveness. Look. The orifice is tight and you can easily adjust the amount of needed gel by squeezing out the gel gently.
I incorporate the product into my skincare routine like this: cleanser – toner – serum – Aloe revital soothing gel – moisturizer. My opinion is that this gel should not be solely your moisturizer. It would not be enough. I would need some more occlusive product to really lock all the product layers into my skin.
I believe that this gel does help you strengthen your skin barrier. After finish using the travel size, I notice my skin has become healthier in terms that it does not have acne so easily anymore. My skin even has mild glowy look under the sunshine, which I have not seen for quite a longgg time.
I finished the travel size in 1.5 months. I applied on my face 2 times a day, each time with a pea size. I decided to get the full size. This time it is a lot much more product available. I am thinking to use it for more purposes, just like advertised: for my body, my hair or used as soothing mask.
So will I repurchase? I already repurchased this haha and you should get one, too. Aloe vera gel has long been known for their effecacy and not costly at all. All in all, if you ask me what is the one aloe vera gel to choose from? I would say Aloe Revital Soothing Gel from Innisfree. Hope you have a great time using this goodie.
