How to spot Fake Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel?

A lot of beauty bloggers claimed how effective Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel is. It became popular across social media. Recently, I watched a video about fake soothing gels. A guy bought it for 100 pesos instead of the original price that is around 300 pesos. After using it for quite some time, he developed some allergies in his face. Laboratory results showed that the fake and original product’s ingredients are totally different.

 

In this blog I will show you the characteristics of the original Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel.

Packaging

  • Have you noticed the 3D effect? The real packaging has embossed effect. Try to feel the texture of the Aloe Vera image.
  • It’s 92% Aloe Vera Gel. Some fake brands says 98%.
  • Look at the sides of the cap. The words NATURE REPUBLIC must be embossed thrice around the lid.

  1. Hi, Karla! I love this gel and I am still using this. Other tips to make sure if it is Authentic. At the back portion, there’s a small picture (Aloe Vera), you can’t see it through your eyes because it’s too small, you can take a photo and if you can see a dot dot on it. If there is, It is Authentic. God bless!

  2. This is helpful! I see a lot of this in Divisoria

  3. I love this gel. It helps my husband to take care of his skin after sports. I had no idea there are fake ones as well, so I will use all your tips when buying it next time!

  4. Oh my gosh, how terrible is this. A shame that people sell fakes.

    This is some great info. It’s crazy that there’s even a such thing as fake Aloe Vera products when it’s so easy to access the real thing. But I guess that all plays into just knowing certain things.

  10. Did not know they were making fake aloe Vera gel… Thank you for this information!

  13. Very interesting! I know the “fake” market is booming but had no idea it went as far as basic products such as Aloe Vera soothing gel! That’s just crazy! I guess we really have to be mindful of pretty much anything and everything we buy and/or consume these days and always check the ingredients!

  14. Hassle that there are a lot of fake skincare and make-up stuff out there! We shouldn’t compromise quality when it comes to our skin. 🙁

  16. I had no idea that there were things to look for when spotting a fake nature republic aloe vera soothing gel. These are good tips and will surely help someone who’s looking for a real one.

  17. That’s a very informative thing. In our country half of the products are fake. So I guess this need to keep in mind next time I but any alovera thing.

  18. Well, even in our country, we get other stuffs which are fake. Maybe following the process we might get the idea. But coming back to Aloe Vera, product looks really fresh and as a fan of packaging, I really like it. If it imports to India, I might buy that.
