Aloe Vera is a magical plant that is known all over the world for its soothing, healing and medicinal properties.

My Experience with Brihans Green Leaf Pure Aloe Vera Skin Gel:
Coming in a transparent plastic pot packaging with a white cap, this is easy to handle and store. Yet I wish they brought us this in tube packaging as you need to dip your fingers to take out the product each time which might be unhygienic. Besides this, all I would say about the product is only positive and nothing else. The product has a transparent green jelly-like texture, has a soothing smell; produces a lovely cooling sensation when applied to the face, feels sticky at first but once you let it get absorbed, it gives you a complete matte and clean look.
This is how I use it: I apply it after cleansing and toning, slathering it on my face and leaving it on till it gets completely absorbed into my skin. Then I apply moisturizer and sunscreen as usual. I have also used this for minor cuts, burns and to soothe my skin after waxing. It works great for all these.
With daily usage, it has made my skin soft and supple and yes, the best part is that my skin glows with good health. It works to some extent on acne scars as well and controls oil. Aloe Vera is one of nature’s gifts that work slowly but works wonders. I love the fact that this has suited my recently turned sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin to the tee.

Cons of Brihans Green Leaf Pure Aloe Vera Skin Gel:

Would I repurchase?
Yes, always. I am on to my second pot now.
Would I recommend?
Yes, this has been my skin’s savior so might work well for you too.
