Farm Stay Tomato Moisture Soothing Gel Review:
The recent increase in hype with soothing gels in the beauty market nudged me to get one and try it myself. I have been using soothing gels since the end of last year but I always stick with aloe vera soothing gels. In this year, I am feeling quite adventurous so I thought that maybe I should try another variant of soothing gel instead. I searched for it on the internet and the results showed a lot of Korean brands that produce different kinds of soothing gel but what snatched my attention the most is the Farm Stay Tomato Moisture Soothing Gel.
So Farm Stay is a Korean skincare and cosmetic brand which uses natural ingredients on their products. There are three kinds of soothing gels that Farmstay offers – aloe vera, snail and tomato gel. I decided to get the tomato soothing gel because its claims look so promising to me. But does it really do what it says? We’ll see about that!

Farm Stay Tomato Moisture Soothing Gel Review:
I have been using this product for almost three weeks now and I am quite surprised with its effect on my skin. I do have an extremely oily skin but I am using this gel every night as a leave-on mask pack and fortunately it didn’t give me major breakouts.
Well, I experienced some breakouts at the first week of using it but, thankfully, it quickly faded away and on the second week my skin feels softer and clearer than before. I also noticed that my skin brightens a little bit.
Regarding the packaging, this product comes with the usual tub for soothing gels. When I first opened the tub, the product actually overflowed which was maybe due to the delivery process. I was actually expecting it to have some color but the gel was clear and it smelled just like the typical, but not as strong as, hair gel which was the only downside for me – I hope it smells more fruity or maybe more tomato-ey?
The consistency of this tomato gel is quite thick so I felt really uncomfortable on my first application but just after 5 minutes I can feel that the gel has been fully penetrated on my skin leaving a moisturize and soft feeling on my face.
I also like the soothing effect of this tomato gel, it’s very relaxing and refreshing. Aside from using this product as regular moisturizer and face mask, I also use this as a substitute body lotion.
Compare with some aloe vera gels that I’ve tried before, I like this tomato gel way much better (except for its smell). It surprisingly compliments my oily skin and somehow brightens my skin tone a little bit. If I would be asked if I would purchase again, well that’s a major yes for me!
Based on my experience, I think this product is suitable for all skin types as long as you administer the proper way to apply this product (no more, no less to how much moisture your skin needs) and just be sure to try it first on your body before you apply it on your face to see if this product is suitable on your skin.
