Yes. I received a mail form OnlyBeauty, a site which delivers freebies to you absolutely free! I bet that caught your attention! You may read about OnlyBeauty on my other post!


As the name of the product already says gel, you would know it has the texture of any normal gel.  It isn't really sticky as the picture below is the maximum it can stretch.

Behold! A picture of this gel:

A clearer picture:


I guess it pretty much smells like spring water, I mean, most of this brand's products smell like spring water anyways. 


50ml is a pretty generous amount for a sample as the full size is only 200ml.

My Experience:

This is how the gel looks like when poured onto my hand. Notice the blue colour?

Wanted to take a pic of the lathering process but the photos came out really blur. So, sorry!

It is very gentle on the skin, like really gentle! The gentleness is kind of like Cetaphil's Gentle Skin Cleanser only, this one actually lathers!

You do know how Cetaphil's doesn't lather at all right? Which then makes some people not fond of it since it doesn't give you that clean feeling or something?

Well, in this gel's case, it is so completely different! The blue gel will turn to white when it lathers and after applying the gel and rinsing it off, you get this very refreshed feeling.


Will I purchase this? Yes, I might. Why not? It is gentle, non-irritant, and very very suitable for acne prone & sensitive skin. Did I also mention that it is so gentle that it is super super suitable for dry skin as well? Well, if i didn't, I just did!

So, that's all for now!
