This is the first moisturizer I reviewed this year. You know how much I loved snail products before. I’ve experienced its healing properties and I was blown away. I wanted to try it again and see if it still works on me. I got Royal Skin’s Soothing Gel in my past Althea haul. I chose it because it’s very affordable. I was hoping it could be a moisturizer for maintenance.
It moisturizes and soothes sensitive and dry skin by external stimulation and maintains moist skin. Quick absorption without stickiness. Okay for infants! It excludes paraben, artificial color, benzophenone talc, mineral oil, silicone oil and animal substances. Multi-purpose gel for face and body.
- Affordable, 150 pesos at Althea

- Can be used on face and body
- Absorbed easily
- Gives enough hydration
- Doesn’t interfere with makeup application and longevity
- Did not make my skin oilier
- Did not emphasize pores
- Did not cause breakouts
- Product label at the bottom has no translation
- Might contain alcohol and/or fragrance
- Can make you look shiny if you use more than enough
I tested this for a week. I like how it’s easily absorbed in a few seconds. It hydrated my skin and smoothened out my dry patches. Some moisturizers can make my pores look bigger but this one didn’t. It didn’t interfere with makeup application and longevity. It actually made it last longer than usual. Makeup application was a breeze. I also used this at night. I woke up without feeling like an oil slick. It did not cause breakouts, redness and no stinging. I also love to use it on the body especially after a hot day.
The only con I could think of is the product label has no translation and there’s no ingredients list. You have to Google it. It might have alcohol and fragrance so watch out if you have sensitive skin. Since it’s gel type, it made my face look shiny when it’s used alone. There was no huge difference in healing breakouts in my case. It’s not surprising since it has only 30,000 ppm concentration. That’s 3% if you convert it to percent.
Final thoughts, this gel is okay as a maintenance. Meaning if you don’t have other issues aside from dehydrated skin. This will instantly hydrate skin without feeling heavy and oily. It’s refreshing especially if you put it in the fridge first.
