Serafica Aloe Vera Soothing Gel
Bought for: Free | SRP: Around P225
From: Serafica Philippines
A few months ago, Ms. Jyka, the owner of Serafica PH, sent me some goodies together with this Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. This is what I'm currently using right now to soothe all the post scars and scabs that were resulted from recent chickenpox infection I had. I can't really get over the fact that I had to deal with more terrible skin problems now that I'm in my early 20s but I somehow got to do something than nothing at all, right? I researched online what are the best remedies and one of the best solutions is Aloe Vera Extract which reminds me of my very own bottle from Serafica. I stopped using it when I developed the rashes and it's good to be back on the game!
Deionized Water, AloeVera Juice, Glycerin, Collagen, D. Panthenol, Phenoxyethanol
Serafica Aloe Vera Soothing Gel comes in a pump type of packaging, indeed very hygienic. It's the one that goes all the way up so you know when you are almost running out.
This product claims to soothe, prevents aging, moisturizes, treats acne and sunburns and is an anti-inflammatory. We must already have heard from our ancestors what Aloe Vera can do to our skin so this isn't something new to us. If I am going to look at the ingredients closely, it's composed of only a few chemicals compared to other AV gels that has approximately 90-99.9% AV extracts yet with a bunch of chemicals we probably haven't heard of yet. And quite intriguingly, this product has Collagen on it which isn't present on any other AV gels I've known.
Serafica Aloe Vera Soothing Gel comes in the usual gel-type formula that barely smells anything and is more lightweight and is non-sticky compared to most AV gels I have tried. It could be because this is not a concentrated AV Extract considering it has Glycerin and Collagen on it for added benefits. I prefer this one though rather than purchasing the pure Aloe Vera for the very simple fact that I can get something more from trying it.
What I noticed though is that this burns the eye, so you might want to refrain applying it to areas near it. I love that it is very hydrating without the stickiness and it refreshes my skin. Now that I have been recovering from chickenpox, this has a greater use for me as it eases itchiness and maintains soft and smooth complexion. I will continue using it to alleviate redness and hasten the healing process.
Now, this is a great product that works for me. But here's the catch...it's quite more expensive compared to other AV gels in the market considering it only has 30ml of product inside (other ranges from 100ml to 250ml I think) and I think Serafica PH would hardly beat other competitors because of its price. But what I can tell you is that this isn't just Aloe Vera, it has a couple other ingredients that is known to be beneficial on the skin too.
Have you tried Serafica Aloe Vera Soothing Gel already? What are the AV gels you've tried that works for you?
