Canarian cosmetics with aloe vera is the hallmark of Tenerife. Therefore, buying skin care cosmetics from the Canary Islands was my number one goal!
As the owner of sensitive skin, I needed to test the most popular cosmetics on the island.
Gel “Pure Aloe Vera Gel – De Canarias” and Moisturizer “Pure Aloe Vera Face Cream Hydraplus SPF 15 – De Canarias” I bought in the store.
After reading reviews about a bunch of fakes that are sold on the island, I was vigilant. Once in the tourist area, I saw aloe jars on every counter. Sellers convince of the originality of the product, stating that this can is about to come off the assembly line, although in reality this is far from the case.
I limited myself to buying only two products, although I could buy a complete set. They are sold in sets. Those who have not had time to buy on the island can look into Duty Free, there they are also there, however, twice as expensive. Therefore, if I were you, I would not forget, especially, about buying a gel.
He is good! Saved me and my husband from the burns we got in the mountains.
- Very pleasant and light texture
- Absorbs quickly
- Leaves no marks on clothes
- Without fragrances, preservatives and other things that they like to add to modern gels
- In general, an ambulance for the face and body.
I cannot say the same about the face cream. I expected a similar action with more nutritional properties.
- Therefore, imagine my disappointment when I was happy to smear myself with the most useful cream on the island and the next morning I found red spots.
I drank Suprastin from allergies and by the evening the rash began to disappear. I, of course, suspected of such a reaction, when the cream caused a slight tingling sensation on the face 5 minutes after application, but I had to finish this experiment in order to tell you about it later.
So, Gel “Pure Aloe Vera Gel – De Canarias” and Moisturizing cream “Pure Aloe Vera Face Cream Hydraplus SPF 15 – De Canarias” are great budget find, but not for people like me – prone to allergies with sensitive skin.
Everyone else will definitely like them, for example, the gel is suitable for oily and combination skin, and the cream for dry skin. But I would recommend limiting the purchase of mini-versions to be sure that there is no reaction to one of the components.
