Etude House 99% Aloe Soothing Gel Review

Etude House 99% Aloe Soothing Gel brings back memories of my youth. When I was about 10 or so my friend Ellen was the fairest girl in all the land. I remember one year we spent the entire Summer at the shore together and the first full day we were there she turned into a lobster. Poor girl had the worst sunburn ever. I’m one of those medium fair girls that tans easily but doesn’t burn. That was my first experience with aloe vera. Her mom slathered her in it to cool the burn.

As for me, I rely on aloe not to sooth but the hydrate my skin. Etude House 99% Aloe Soothing Gel is a pretty awesome product to have around for a number of different things. And we all know how much I love a good multitasking skincare product!

Etude House 99% Aloe Soothing Gel can be used just about anywhere that needs a little hydrating action. This formula contains 93% Aloe Vera but also a host of other goodies like ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid, and Glycerin. It comes housed in rather giant squeeze tube (8.4 oz) and can be used on your face, body, and even your hair should you like.

I apply it straight to my body and face from the bottle. A little goes a long way on my face and it absorbs easily without leaving behind a sticky or tacky film. I love using it on my legs which tend to be rather itchy in the Winter. I saturate pieces of facial cotton with it as well which I proceed to lay on my cheeks and forehead to ease dry, flaky skin! It works great as a facial mask pack using this method. You can even use it on split ends or dry hair although I haven’t personally done that myself. The thick gel texture absorbs very easily into skin and feels rather cooling and soothing.

If you’re dry, it’s a must have in my opinion!

Love this stuff.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Dear Muse,

    I know you have tried and tested a ton of moisturizers. Which one would you recommend for very dry skin??? I’m going on accutane soon and my skin is going to become very dry, which is one of the most common side effects. Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much girl!!!! <3333

    P.S. I love your blog, its amazing!!!!! I always come here for product reviews (:

      I actually have the holika holika one, the textures are the same but it doesn’t contain the ceramides or the Hyaluronic Acid that this formula does. Tony Moly also has one and a bamboo one but they have a bit of a sticker formula.

    Hi. I think it’s best if you will remove the “Approve”-thing in your blog because Jeffree Star will surely sue you once he sees this. It’s been copyrighted under his name fyi. If you don’t want to experience being on the same shoes as Michelle Dy, then, remove the ‘Approve’-thing.

      Hi Loisa! Thanks for the comment but I have no intention of removing “Muse Approved” from any of my posts. I’ve been blogging over ten plus years and from almost the start of my blog I’ve used “muse approved” for items I’ve liked and recommended to my readers. Most of my posts pre-date Jeffree Star’s youTube channel. “Jeffree Star Approved” might be trademarked but I have no knowledge of him using “Muse Approved” or trade marketing that phrase. If he has a trademark for the word “approved” that does not mean that he owns the word in all instances and uses according to the US trademark law. In my archives here: https://www.musingsofamuse.com/category/muse-approved/page/83 you’ll see dates ranging back to 2012 when I was Muse Approving items for purchase. Hope this helps!
