Hi bunnies!! Today I have a an icy beauty product!! This is The Face Shop’s Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel! Not gonna lie, this was an impulse buy when I was visiting my local store.. The sales lady got to me- she enticed me in with a “oh, this is our new product, you’ll love it!” and I totally fell for it. I don’t regret this purchase though! Without further ado let’s get into the review!
(This is a hunnyybase review so it will have an in-depth analysis with noteworthy ingredients)
300 ml twist top container. Plastic container so it’s not super heavy. Purchased from my local The Face Shop for about $10.
Purified water • Modified alcohol • Glycerin • Dipropylene glycol • Butylene glycol • Stearyl heptanoate • Aloe vera leaf extract (20000ppm) • Dimethicone • Stearyl caprylate • Panthenol • C12-20 alkyl glucoside • C14 -22 Alcohol • Ethylhexyl glycerin • 1,2-Hexanediol • Sodium polyacrylate starch • PEG-40 Hydrogenated castor oil • Carbomer • Pfizer-26-Butes-26 • Potassium hydroxide • Disodium diethylacetate • phenoxyethanol • fragrance
Purified water – Very niceee. I’m assuming it’s Jeju purified water?
PEG-40 Hydrogenated castor oil – Used as an emulsifier in cosmetics, this can be irritating to some but overall safe to use in cosmetics. (source-ewg)
Phenoxyethanol – a preservative used in cosmetics. Cause for concern is that people can be allergic to it and infants should not be exposed to it (source-safecosmetics)
I really like this Jeju Aloe Ice! It does feel really cool to the touch, but it’s not like nitrogen gas levels so you won’t hurt yourself or anything crazy. The gel itself doesn’t feel like gel, it feels more like a lotion. That’s the biggest difference between this and regular aloe soothing gels. The color of this is also a blueish white whereas regular aloes are clear colored.
The container is HUGE and has been lasting a really long time! I use this all over my body. Feels fine, no big complaints or negatives~ I believe this aloe would be good for everyone, it’s really mild and can be used all over the body. Drew found it felt great and was easy to apply too! User friendly 🙂
One bad thing- I don’t know why they put fragrance in this gel.. IT DON’T SMELL LIKE NOTHING. It really doesn’t have a smell so they’re wasting money putting it in and they’re lowering the quality of the product as well..
Another thing that irks me is that the ingredient list doesn’t specify if the water or any of the ingredients are derived from Jeju… Mysteryyy… Would they just lie for marketing purposes? Who knows.
Oh! The store lady also recommended that I put this aloe in the fridge and then apply, that way it really does feel like ice! I haven’t tried it but I imagine it would feel good only in the summertime LOL
Overall I truly liked this product, the ingredients weren’t bad at all and I’m happy with my impulse purchase! If you guys have tried this or would like to try it lemme know in the comments below!!
I hope you guys have a great Wednesdayyy!
