What name can you give a plant which comes with so many benefits and is super awesome? Superplant, like Superman? All of you must have guessed it already. Nah? Come on! It’s a long-stemmed plant with leaves containing transparent gel. Yes, I am talking about Aloevera! Women, 1000’s of years ago, have been using it in their beauty regime (Women will always be women) :)
As usual, my skin started flaring up and this time it was my nose. It was dry nd flaking and I was fed up of applying creams which made it redder. I had seen a couple of aloe vera gels in my local supermarkets but then somebody told me about this gel and in a couple of days, I got this delivered.
Just Herbs is a company which brings you ancient wisdom in a new bottle. It follows the old Ayurvedic Bhaishajyas (texts) and formulates products with plants and herbs. This is one such product of theirs :)

Price & Quantity: Rs.395 for 100 gm
Key Ingredients: Aloevera, Cucumber, Soy Lecithin.
Regular massage effectively removes sun tan from the face, neck and the back. For best results, follow by the application of Just Herbs Petalsoft Antitan Rose Face Pack or Fennel and Manjishtha Rejuvenating Beauty Pack.
Packaging: The packaging is eco-friendly. In the age of ‘saving the world’ and ‘being green’, I totally love this even though it’s a tad unhygienic. The reason being it comes in a tub with a screw top. So every time you need to use it, in goes your fingers (along with a little germs).I know. Scary! But the pros of it outweigh the cons.
Colour, Consistency & Fragrance: Green!! A thick gel which spreads easily. It smells faintly of cucumber and some other herbal smell.
How it works: Massage it on your face after cleansing. It spreads easily and gets absorbed in a jiffy. I got this specifically to remove acne marks. After applying this for a week or so, I was amazed to see them reduced. It also reduced my tan. Another thing you could try is take a little product in your palm, apply water and then gently massage your face. After applying this, your face might shine. Do not fear because this gets absorbed within minutes leaving your face soft and supple. This helped me in many ways. I had acquired a face wash recently which was working fine on my face but just making my nose dry. Weird right? So every day after washing my face I applied this on my nose and in a few days, the dryness had reduced. His also doubles up as an under eye gel. There is a marked reduction in my puffiness around my eyes.

Do I Recommend?:
If you would like to try something for acne and puffiness, then you can buy this. But I would suggest another brand whose review will be coming up soon. I love that gel and its cheaper. I have nothing against the company or the product but I like that better.
Would I Repurchase?: No
