Hello dear people! ❤️❤️❤️
I hope you all are doing great… 🙂
Well, tell me something… Do you know that bamboo extract actually has anti-acne as well as anti-ageing properties?!
You didn’t know, right? 😀
Even I came to know about how amazing bamboos are only recently… And wow, I was amazed! ❤️
Natural bamboo extract is loaded with silica, a mineral which is essential for the body to produce collagen… It helps boost the production of collagen which in turn makes your skin, hair and nails healthy! Silica also helps strengthen skin’s protective barrier and prevents moisture loss and acne… The anti-inflammatory properties of bamboo keep the skin calm and further help with irritation and breakouts… It is also packed with antioxidants which help delay the signs of ageing! ❤️
Today, I am going to review The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel for you all…which I have been using for quite some time…
Read on.. 🙂

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The Face Shop Damyang bamboo fresh soothing gel comes in a pretty huge plastic tub, which is designed to look like a bamboo culm. I love the packaging – it may be bulky, but it is very sturdy and aesthetically-pleasing… ❤️
The tub has all the necessary details about the product, including the list of ingredients and expiry date, mentioned on it…
The bamboo gel is transparent and colourless… It is non-runny but has an extremely lightweight, watery texture (very similar to The Face Shop Jeju aloe gel)… The gel has a herbal fragrance which I find quite soothing! The smell is mild and fades away within a couple of minutes. So, I don’t think that it is going to bother the sensitive noses much…
My facial skin gets quite oily and problematic during the summer season and I pretty much ditch all of my moisturizers! This bamboo gel gets absorbed into the skin within no time and doesn’t leave behind any residue… Hence, it acts as a perfect moisturizer for oily skin types!
It is also quite soothing and when used after sun exposure, threading or hair removal, it calms down the skin…
This bamboo gel can be used as a mask for both face and hair as well as in DIY beauty recipes… 🙂
Now, this gel does contain a certain amount of chemicals… So, if you prefer to use only 100% natural gels, this is not something that would please you!
But I personally don’t mind using beauty products that contain a small amount of artifical additives… And I love this gel! 😀

Hope it helps! ❤️
