This product is amazing if you are looking for something with cica in it! I have dry/acne prone skin and here’s my review✨ Consistency: Similar to aloe vera but feels nicer on the skin and absorbs quicker. Smell: Doesn’t really smell like anything Effectiveness: It soothes and moisturizes the skin very well. The exfoliators are very mild but I did see a slight difference in my pores. Packaging: Very good Who is it for: For every skin type, especially sensitive skin. I also think it could be a nice moisturizer for people with oily skin. How I use it: I use it as a “serum” before my moisturizer. Sometimes in the mornings I only use this gel and then sunscreen as a final step. Hope this helps :)

Can u see how big the pump bottle is compared to COSRX snail mucin?! Somebymi is so so generous when it comes to their products. And it helps that this line performs excellently for my annoying adult maskne (i have dehydrated oily and acne prone skin). Would definitely repurchase this line again and again. 😘👏🏼

This arrived just in time after I got a little bit of a sunburn on my back. This has been so soothing, and I’ve also been using it as an all over body serum before lotion, it’s quite nice. Hope it comes back In stock soon, this feels like something I want in my regular routine.

Its so good for dry skin!! it exfoliates and calms my skin down so it doesnt dry out. I would just recommend putting a cream over it. something with ceramides over this product would be a match made in heaven. The Cica in it is the best its way way better than regular aloevera gel. Its HUGEE

I got this product because I’m experiencing more acne breakouts than usual right now (change in seasons, probably). I have never used an AHA/BHA/PHA combo product like this, although I do usually use BHA several times a week, and sometimes azelaic acid. This gel smells of tea tree oil more than anything, but it’s not overwhelming, and it goes away pretty quickly. It feels pretty nice on most of my face, but it does sting a bit on the worst of the acne spots. I use this after cleansing at night, a few times a week. The next morning my acne always looks much improved: It’s flattened, it’s less red and irritated, and the skin around the breakouts isn’t dried out or flaky. I wish it was more soothing to apply, but the results are worth it to me. It’s a huge bottle, so it’ll take me a long time to finish, and I appreciate the value I’m getting. Once I get through it, if the price is about the same, I could see myself buying it again.

Great value for a surprisingly comprehensive formula. I did notice that many of the reviews are from younger folks, so I wanted to add that this works GREAT on mature(ing) skin as well. I'm in my early 40's, and I use it as a body 'lotion'. PHA's inhibit glycation (and glycation breaks down collagen and elastin). I figured that I could use some glycation-inhibition at my age. Even if all it did was mitigate further damage. Though it's not marketed as such as a 'firming' product. I had noticeably firmer skin after using it daily for a few months. It wasn't anything major, but since I wasn't expecting it, I was pleasantly surprised. It's inexpensive, it makes my skin soft, soaks in fast, doesn't irritate my skin and it doesn't smell like much of anything. I would have kept using it for those reasons alone. The skin firming was just icing.

We liked each other from the first use. I use it on my face, hands and hair. In my opinion, it's better than Aloe Vera gel. Moisturizes well, smells good and is very efficient.

Usually I use aloe vera gel for everything but this cica gel is a game changer!!!! If I have redness on the face from a pimple, just apply this before bed and the next day the redness is significantly reduced. Amazing stuff! Also love that you get such a huge bottle for the price you pay. Absolutely worth the money

The size of the jar is excellent for this price. The texture is watery gel - my oily skin absorbs it very well but it still leaves my skin moisturized and soft to the touch. I have sensitive skin and it has helped me a lot to keep my skin soft and without irritation, especially after using acids or retinol. It moisturizes surprisingly well, blurs pores, also heals small breakouts - the healing process goes much faster, literally in two days there is no trace of these things. I also urge you to always use spf with it when the UV index rises to 2>, otherwise there will be redness. I also tried using it with microcurrent devices - it doesn't slide well unless you spray it with water again and again. But the ingredients are great so I will continue using it!
