The Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel is the perfect treatment for sunburns and dehydrated acne-prone skin, and as one writer recently discovered, it’s also a must-have remedy for post-hair removal redness.
I always appreciate a beauty product that surprises me with its multi-tasking benefits. When I first started using the Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel ($19), it was to calm and relieve my skin after being out in the sun for so many hours this summer. While it works wonders on sunburns, it also does so much more than that.
The gel-moisturizer is formulated with aloe and propolis which help soothe irritated skin, fade acne scars, brighten skin tone, and even boost hydration. When I first started using the product, I instantly noticed how calm and soothed my skin would be just minutes after use.

Since my super sensitive skin gets very red and irritated whenever I get my brows threaded, I decided to test the moisturizer out post-treatment to see if I could find yet another use for it.
The aloe applied at most threading salons usually doesn’t do much for me at all. I’ll have the redness going on for hours, which is why getting my brows done before work or a date is normally a major no-no. But with my super busy schedule, I was looking for an option that could bring me quicker results.
Recently, I brought the Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel with me to my brow appointment and applied immediately after my technician finished. The skin surrounding my brows instantly felt calmer and after about an hour, the redness was completely gone.

Unlike most aloe-formulated gels, this one is lightweight and isn’t sticky which is a major plus. I almost forgot I had it on that day. It also didn’t break my acne-prone skin out. I’m so sold on this product, I’m seriously considering using it after receiving other hair removal treatments like Brazilian waxes.
