Works wonders on my skin

User Reviews

Strongest points
- Thick texture which makes my skin feel hydrated
- Is refreshing and makes my skin feel more plump
- Aloe is fantastic for looking after and repairing skin so aids in getting rid of blemishes and dry patches really quickly
Weakest points
- I would personally prefer a tube rather than a pot of cream but this is a minor weakness
Summary
I use this as part of my nightly cleanse, tone and moisturise routine. I prefer a thick texture in a cream at night as it makes me feel as though it can work into my skin whilst I sleep and this definitely makes my skin feel soothed and hydrated each morning. As Aloe has antibacterial properties and accelerates healing, this cream cures blemishes and dry patches on my skin much quicker than other creams that I have used.
It can seem a little expensive for 50ml of a product but for me this cream is most definitely worth it!

soothing gentle night cream

A lovely night cream that it is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types because it does not contain harsh chemicals and perfumes.
A nice consistancy that is actually quite soothing on application.
Skin felt soft and plump after use.
A lovely product to use,i would highly recommend

Simple, Caring & Effective

Simple, no frills range with excellent calming effects

User Reviews

Strongest points
Thick consistency cream with no added fragrance, colours or chemicals. Excellent for soothing sensitive and irritated skins and deeply moisturises skin without greasiness or breakouts. Practical simple plastic pot packaging with screw top lid. Excellent value for money
Weakest points
None
Summary
I purchased the Aloe Soothing range whilst I was suffering from sensitive skin due to a prolonged period of medication. I was attracted by the fact that this cream contains no chemicals, colours or fragrance and had a high content of Aloe Vera which naturally calms and soothes all manner of sensitive and irritated skin conditions. The pot is a pale green, giving the impression that this is the colour of the cream however the product is pure silky white. The screw top lid is highly practical for travel and the packaging is no frills simplicity indicative of the cream inside. The cream has a thick consistency that melts and absorbs easily into the skin. This product leaves no greasy residue or stickiness. The moisturisation is excellent and immediately the Aloe contents calms and soothes the skin and nourishes and hydrates the skin during the night while you sleep. In the morning my skin felt soft, supple and plumped. After prolonged use (a whole pot) my skin did not breakout or flare up at all and this cream in combination with the rest of the range, went a very long way towards healing and rebalancing my skin. I would highly recommend this cream for anyone who is sensitive to harsh ingredients and for those that simply need a soothing touch for sensitive skin

Summary
Really thick texture that absorbs really well into the skin leaving a nice light covering. Don't be put off by the thickness, it melts really well.
The scent is very subtle and delivers really good moisturisation throughout the night.
Skin is left nice and soft, ready for the morning routine.
