The Face Shop Fresh Jeju Lotus Soothing Gel
Its been a while I reviewed any product the reason being the extreme cold and dry skin issue. To add to the woes, the gloomy sun made the surrounding even more dull and I didn’t feel like clicking pictures also. On that note, Happy festive season as the harvest season has started now and it is going to be more sunny now in the coming days.
Today I am here to share a review on a product I have been using since the summer of 2018. It is generally very hot and humid that time and I needed something to sooth my skin of the soaring temperature to keep it refreshing. So I tried it for a good 3-4 months and got a second tub as well but since November I was quite on and off with its usage due to the changing season.
I am sharing my review on this product as sooner it is again going to be hot affair in a month and I wish to keep my skincare products upgraded for the transitioning months of spring-summer.

Packaging: The gel comes in a large translucent plastic tub. It has a screw open cap and beneath it is another thin plastic flap to secure the liquid gel. You can use a spatula or your fingers to take the gel out. The packaging is such that there is no product wastage and is also travel friendly without any spilling issue. It is just that the heavy tub comes in one size so you cannot carry is most times with such a bulky tub.
Product Color & Texture: The soothing lotus gel is mainly transparent in color with a gel based consistency. It is neither too runny nor too hard. Just the perfect gel you would love to use on the skin.
Fragrance: It smells of a typical lotus flower as the ingredients too constitute extracts of lotus flower. The fragrance is not too strong to disturb your senses. It is mild and lingers for a short while only when you use it.
My Experience with The Face Shop Fresh Jeju Lotus Soothing Gel
Talking about my experience with this soothing gel, I have literally used this product each day in the extreme summers. This soothing gel is exactly what it sounds. It gives you a cool and refreshing feel when applied on the oily skin when it is damn hot and humid. I really hate using face creams during the summers an mainly use face serums because my skin is always at the T-zone throughout summers.
Do not expect any skin reformation with this gel though. You should use it as a soothing gel or use it just after you wash your face to give your skin the hydrating nourishment.
I mostly used it in two ways. First I used it just after washing my face with a face wash. And secondly in the evening after sprinkling water on the face, I used to massage this gel lightly and wash it again. I noticed an instant refreshing skin texture.
It is an excellent after-sun care product for those who regularly step out in the sun or live in humid/ coastal areas. The aloe vera extract in this gel also treats minor skin problems like dryness, allergic reactions on the face etc.
