Hey everyone, today I am here with Lotus Herbals Aloehydra Aloe Vera Moisturising Gel Review. Initially I had a hard time finding a good moisturizer for my skin type, which would not cause any breakouts, make my skin more oily along with taking care of dry patches. After trying a few cream and lotion based options I opted for this gel based moisturizer, which claims to be oil free as well.
Aloe Vera is immensely popular for its skincare benefits and I am sure everyone at one point must have tried fresh aloe Vera gel from the plant for their skin, and it does make my skin look glowing. But it is a task to do that on daily basis with a busy life everyone has today, this aloe Vera gel based moisturizer can be a great alternative for that. so let’s see how Lotus Herbals Aloehydra Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel fared on me.

What Lotus Herbals Aloehydra Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel Claims
My Experience with Lotus Herbals Aloehydra Aloe Vera Moisturising Gel
Lotus Herbals Aloehydra Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel comes in a sturdy transparent plastic bottle, with a similar cap. Since the packaging is transparent it is easy to identify the amount of product left inside. The gel inside has a yellow tint to it, but when spread it goes almost clear and has a mild soothing aloe Vera fragrance.
Since it is gel based moisturizer it is extremely light, and feels slight cooling on application. It claims that it is suitable for all skin types and I have been using this one for long time now and it has never caused any breakouts on my skin. I only need a pump every time and it gets absorbed nicely. But on those days when my skin feels dry I tend to apply little more and it feels sticky initially, so going overboard it not ideal with it.
Being a gel based moisturizer Lotus Herbals Aloehydra Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel is perfect for summers in my opinion and great for normal to oily skin types but is not suitable for dry skin. It instantly hydrates my skin without feeling heavy or looking oily and keeps it moisturized and soft for few hours and works well under makeup. But does not take care of dry patches alone, and I need something more moisturizing for that. Having said that I do not like using it for winters as well due to the same reason. Also it lacks SPF and when used during day time, a separate sunscreen cannot be skipped. It claims to contain extracts of pure aloe Vera leaf, but on regular usage I did not notice any major skin changes it just acts like a basic moisturizer.
Overall, Lotus Herbals Aloehydra Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel is an oil free gel based moisturizer, which instantly hydrates skin and is a great option if you have normal to oily skin and are looking for lightweight moisturizer. But it fails to take care of dry patches and skin; hence I do not recommend it to dry skinned beauties.
