MINI BLOG SERIES: BRING GREEN – FRESH BOWL PACK – Aloe Jelly – Is this any different from Aloe Gel used for Treating Sunburns?

{Moisturising & Soothing / Sleeping Mask} [브링 그린 프레시 볼 팩 알로에젤리]

If you’ve ever suffered from any kind of skin irritation, be it sunburn, acne, or sensitive skin, you might have heard of or been recommended to try aloe vera.

Aloe is meant to be super soothing and apparently, one of the best things you can do for your skin is to keep an aloe plant at home, squeeze out the juice and use it on your face. (Does anyone have experience using an aloe plant at home as part of your skincare regimen?) 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Aloe’s excellent reputation led me to seek out this aloe mask.

You can read my reviews on Bring Green’s bowl packs over here:

Let’s get into the review!

What it is: 

It is a sleeping mask that you apply after washing your face. You leave it on overnight and then wash it off the next day.

TL;DR: 

I actually felt as though my skin was drier than before when I woke up the next morning.

Price & Availability: 

You can get these online for US$ 2.00 or instore at Olive Young. Locally, they go for ₩1,500 per pack. Occasionally, there will be ‘buy two get one free’ deals.

Size/Quantity: 

The company website states that each contains 8 g of product. It certainly contains enough product for your face and neck both, perhaps even your decolletage if you have a small face.

Ingredients:

Nope, can’t find any ingredients listings anywhere.

Packaging: 

It’s basically a plastic capsule sealed off by a foil lid on top. I would recommend this type of format for when you’re travelling or out and about in particular.

What the company says: 

Aloe Jelly: After cleansing, spread a layer of the sleeping mask and pat your face to aid absorption. Then, rinse it with lukewarm water next morning. (sleeping pack)

Consistency/Texture: 

This came out of the capsule as a thickish, transparent green gel. The gel itself was smooth, which did disappoint me just a bit as I had been expecting aloe bits.

Scent: 

There was barely any scent whatsoever. If anything, the gel had a slight cucumber-y smell but it certainly dissipated quickly.

Application: 

The mask went on smoothly, though quite wet and a tad runny. I would recommend layering this over a cleansed and toned face, ideally with some nourishing serums underneath.

Due to the fact that I stored it in the fridge, like I do with all my capsules and sheet masks, this felt cooling and soothing on first impact.

The gel sank in quite quickly, which had me worried, but I decided to press on for review purposes.

Efficacy:

When I woke up the next morning, my skin was not, I repeat, NOT happy. It felt dry and tight, existing breakouts did not look better, fine lines were not smoothed out. In fact, my face looked as though I’d forgotten to put on any skincare the night before.

Thankfully, the mask washed off easily enough.

I could see this working as a sleeping mask only if you were to take a nap with it, 30 – 90 minutes, and then either apply something richer on top or remove with some washcloth or toner on a cotton pad and start again.

Final Thoughts:  

I will most definitely not be repurchasing. You can get the same results by slathering aloe jelly on your mug.

Can you see the horror on my face?
