Skin type: Normal to dry
The Face Shop is a renowned name when it comes to Korean Skincare. Today, I am reviewing one of their skincare products that goes by the name Jeju Aloe Ice Gel. I found this quite interesting and unique and bought it a couple of weeks back. So without further ado, let’s get started and jump right into the review. Stay tuned…
What The Brand Claims: Formulated with Aloe Vera leaf Extract from Jeju to soothe and moisturize the skin! This gel can be used for various purposes, including moisturizing, soothing, facial pack and after-sun care. This product can be refrigerated or frozen for a more effective, soothing result, especially during hot summer days.
Packaging: The gel comes in a beautiful round tub that is huge in size. The blue and white packaging looks gorgeous as well as elegant! As you open the top cover, you will find another plastic lid that keeps the product in place and needs to be removed in order to use the product. All the important details such as date of expiry, ingredient list, net product weight and directions to use are clearly mentioned.
My Experience With The Product: The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Ice Refreshing Gel is white in color and appears to be like frost in a tub. As soon as you take the product out in your palm, it just melts and disappears into the skin like magic. In fact, it feels as if one is applying a water-like gel on the face! The formula is ultra-light and imparts some hydration to the skin. You can also refrigerate the product before for it to provide a cooling effect. However, if you apply some extra gel, then it feels somewhat sticky and uncomfortable!
I feel this product would work great for those with oily to normal skin and is perfect for hot, humid summer days. However, it will not be moisturizing enough for dry and very dry skin! Speaking of the fragrance, it has a soft Aloe scent that lingers on for some time. The product is priced at Rs 500 and can be easily found online.

Final Thoughts: The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Ice Refreshing Gel has an incredibly lightweight formula that just disappears into the skin like magic. It provides some hydration and leaves the skin soft and smooth. The quantity is huge and goes a long way. The product is perfect for hot, humid summer days and can be easily found online.
However, on the downside, it contains alcohol, that I am just not okay with! Also, if extra product is applied, it leaves a sticky feeling behind, that does not feel comfortable. So as for me, I won’t be repurchasing this, but if you are someone with oily to normal skin, then you can certainly give this a try!
