Today, it is one of the most widely used natural products across the globe. This healing gel works like magic on all skin types.

Aloe Vera Gel With Liquorice & Cucumber Extract, Khadi Natural
A lot of aloe vera gels available in the market are either too greasy or leave the skin extremely dry. However, this one by Khadi Natural moisturizes the skin perfectly and is not very oily. This is especially for those who have oily skin. Khadi is one of the leading brands when it comes to offering organic skincare products and is economical too.

Nykaa Naturals Bathing Soap
A new kid on the block, and one we've only just started using, the Nykaa Naturals bathing bar is filled not only with the goodness of aloe vera but also tea tree. Since the base is glycerine, expect it to be moisturising, though you may feel it a bit drying at first.
Price: INR 85 (on discount)

WOW Skin Science Aloe Vera Multipurpose Beauty Gel, WOW
The snazzy packaging on this gel by WOW Skin Science also works really well to squeeze out the gel, instead of getting your hands sticky by dipping it into the container. Apart from aloe vera juice, this gel has a small amount of citric acid, which helps lighten tans and pigmentation.
Price: INR 449 for 250ml
User Rating: 4.4/5 (Nykaa), 4.2/5 (Amazon) of 13,437 and 33,283 ratings respectively!
Green Leaf Pure Aloe Vera Skin Gel, Green Leaf
In the market with Aloe Vera gel far before it became a fad, Green Leaf's gel is pure and simple aloe. Of course, they add colour to it, but it doesn't effect your skin in any way as far as we've seen (a member of team LBB used this for many years). It has no smell either which is a huge plus.
Price: INR 380 for 500g
User Rating: 4.4/5 (Amazon)
The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel
This is a personal recommendation from an editor at LBB as she uses this every night before bed. A little goes a long way. Though lightly scented, it's fresh, light, and dries quickly. As advertised, with regular use, pigmentations do reduce over time, and it's soothing after a hot day out. This one is ideal for all skin types, though go easy on the quantity if you have oily skin as it's super hydrating.
Price: INR 490 for 300g
User Rating: 4.6/5 (Nykaa), 4.5/5 (Amazon)
Light Hydrating Facial Gel Pure Aloe Vera - Forest Essentials
The name might say pure, but the ingredients include cucumber and wheat germ extract, glycerin, and floral scents in this aloe vera gel by Forest Essentials. Though slightly pricey, it smells heavenly, and applying at the end of a long, hot day feels like a mini spa sesh, especially if it's part of your evening skincare routine. It's free from parabens, petrochemicals and synthetic chemicals. Apart from cooling the skin, it's also hydrating which makes it a great gel for us.
Price: INR 1,550 for 50g
