Recently I have come across a new product that is Lotus soothing gel by the brand The Face Shop. The face shop is a Korean brand and I am really obsessed with Korean beauty products. This lotus gel concept was completely new to me so I thought to give it a shot. Let’s begin with the review.
THE FACE SHOP FRESH LOTUS SOOTHING GEL DESCRIPTION:
The Face Shop lotus gel comes in a very cute big tub with a white cap. The gel seems a little pinkish in colour in the tub but when you scoop out the gel it is a transparent and crystal clear gel. It gets absorbed into the skin very quickly.It has mild floral fragrance which is sweet but some alcoholic smell is also there because it has some alcoholic contents in it. But this smell won’t bother you. It contains 60% of Jeju Island’s fresh lotus extracts. This formula is free from 5 additives: parabens, tar colourant, mineral oil, talc, paraffin.
Fresh lotus soothing gel is made up of clear, glass-like beads that contain lotus flower extract from Jeju Island. This multipurpose gel protects against harmful environmental aggressors, soothes tired skin and can be used daily or after sun exposure.

DOES IT REALLY WORK?
yes, it does fulfil its claims effectively I have been using this gel since a few days and I am loving it.
HOW TO USE IT?
Massage this gel on your face as well as all over the body. It instantly refreshes your skin and your skin will be relaxed and refreshed all day long. If you are having sunburns and tans due to sun exposure then by applying it gives you a cooling sensation and soothes your skin. It gives nourishment, softens and moisturises the skin very well. You can use it as a night cream. You can make your own mist by using this gel. Take a spray bottle, add 1 teaspoon of lotus gel,1-2 drops of any essential oil and some plain water.

PROS AND CONS:
PROS: It moisturises and softens the skin. It makes you refreshed and relaxed. The huge tub will last for months. It is best for summer and monsoon seasons. It gives a healthy glow to the dull looking skin.
CONS: The tub packaging is unhygienic to use. It feels a bit sticky just like aloe vera gel. But after half an hour it won’t feel sticky. On the face, you do not need to reapply but on other parts of the body, you have to reapply it as the skin tends to get dry after 2-3 hours.

I will repurchase it for sure. If you are getting tired of using aloe vera gel and looking for a refreshment then this lotus gel will be the best option to choose.
MY RATING: 4.5/5
