I received the Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel for free from Picky and Benton in exchange for my honest review!
This product contains Aloe, Propolis Extract, Green Tea Extract, and Cucumber Fruit Extract! Such an interesting combo. I’ve never even heard of cucumber extract. 😅
Aloe and Propolis are supposed to soothe and calm the skin, while also providing much needed hydration and nourishment. 💚 ✨
I like the sleekness and simplicity of the packaging. I ALWAYS appreciate sustainability, so I’m glad the box is recyclable. It’s a semi-clear gel and absorbs into the skin pretty quickly.
The smell is odd. It reminds me of BBQ 🍖 😅 🤢 Let’s just say I try to apply it quickly. The smell doesn’t linger though!
It dries down to a satin-y finish. My acne is horrible these days and it seemed to soothe it, but not by much. I used this for two weeks, and each night I woke up to an oily mess. 😞 I wanted to love this. I promise, I really did. I have SUPER oily skin to start out with so maybe this would be more suited for normal to dry skin types. I will continue to test it to see if other skin products work well with it and to see if it’s something I’m using that may be adding to my oiliness.
I give it a B-
BUT!!! I do love other Benton products I’ve tried, this one just wasn’t for me. 🤷🏽♀️
I’m am so grateful for the opportunity to try this, I really am. 💚 Thank you Benton and Picky. #gopicky #benton #pickygiveaway #skincarereview #producttester
