Etre Belle Aloe-Vera Moisturizing Gel

I'm going to be honest, and say this moisturising gel did not appeal to me when i first tried it. It has a really sticky texture to the gel, and it didn't spread well over my skin. 

I received this in my May Glossybox, along with the Philosophy moisturiser, so after testing this out for just over a month, i can give you my honest opinion, and wether or not this product was for me..

The full version for the Etre belle Aloe Vera gel, is worth £15.93, considerably less than the Philosophy moisturiser, which is priced at £35.50.
I definitely preferred applying the Philosophy moisturiser, as personally i prefer something creamy, that will spread easily and make me feel like my skin is getting all the love and care that it needs.

Applying the Aloe Vera gel, felt very sticky.. but i have to say, after a few days of using it, i got used to that feeling, and it wasn't so sticky once it had dried, once it was applied it sunk into my skin leaving it feeling very soft and smooth to the touch - with no greasy film over my face. 
It's also really helped to calm the redness on my face. Due to sensitivity, i usually look like i'm sunburnt! (or constantly blushing!) So i was very pleased with how well it helped.

Gel moisturisers are usually better for oily skin, and with combination skin, i wasn't sure how it would react to my very dry nose, but it really helped hydrate it. 

Overall, i would say this moisturiser is a good one to use for all skin types, it doesn't dry your skin out, and it doesn't make it any oilier, definitely a good moisturiser for people with combination skin! It's such a pain trying to find a one that helps with both skin types.

What are your thoughts on this moisturising gel.. if you've tried it?
