initially bought by accident thinking it was a variation of my go to moisturizer. used for a while before noting it wasnt a moisturizer :) wasnt a bad moisturizer at all for my middle aged combination skin :) lovely light gel texture. now my teen uses it as a weekly moisturizer, or on her hormonal acne, or as a face mask base/mix :)
Also reached for by everyone else in the household for sun burn soothing, mosquito and other insect bite irritation reduction, spots of eczema, scrapes and minor burns.
extended family member "swiped" mine by accident while vacationing together. Now also a die hard fan lol

I have the spotty and at the same time dry, irritable skin, symptomatic of KP (keratosis pilaris) and this gel goes a long way towards soothing, moisturising and drying out the small red spots. Wish it came in a larger container!
08/02/2024, By WvB_1
I've rediscovered this gel purely out of desperation. Some of my family members struggle with eczema-prone or dry, itchy skin. We often find a product that seems to be working, but, after a few days, the itchiness and redness return. However, this gel seems to be working wonders! I love that it has multiple usages, incl minor cuts and burns - one tube for almost everything. I'm sure to always have at least one of these in the house.

I use this gel to dry out the odd pimple, then decided to try on a toenail that has had a fungal infection for year, and it cleared it right up!
20/03/2022, By Robyn-Lee
I can’t fit how amazing this product is into a box. And at such a great price. Not only soothes spots but dried them out. Works amazing on mosquito bites. Best part is that I use it so often but it lasts really long. Value for money

This saved my skin from fungal acne
12/12/2021, By Muslima
This product has helped a lot with the painful eczema on my hands. Gave my mos some and she is diabetic, this gel helped a lot with a bump that was taking quite some time to heal.
08/12/2021, By Andrew
Discovered this gel through faithful to nature many years ago and always ensure I have stock! Have recommended it to many as it has incredible healing and soothing properties.
04/06/2021, By Debs
It helps to soothe my scalp for a moment. I tend to get psoriasis.

Helps to fade scars and heal wounds
25/03/2021, By Maureen
Bought this by mistake thinking it was the moisturiser. Thought I had better use it and I am not unhappy at all. Very soothing, takes the itch out of insect bites, moisturises my husband's dry surface skin, helps to heal the 'zapped' sun spots (sun damage early in life) and will buy again. Vegan and well priced.
10/03/2021, By Bianca
Works amazing for burns and all kinds of skin problems.
04/02/2021, By Claudy
I got this as a sample, used it for a mild skin irritation and it cleared up in a few days. Will definitely buy some
03/02/2021, By P
This was an excellent product, especially to use in sensitive areas. Soothed and healed fragile and sensitive skin in a matter of days after it had been an issue for weeks. Also works well on other kinds of damaged skin. Definitely a fan, am going to make sure I always have a tube in the cabinet.
03/02/2021, By Bianca
Amazing all- in-one product!
03/02/2021, By Robyn
It absorbed very quickly into the skin. Lightweight and smells great. Helps to heal wounds and fade scars
27/01/2021, By Melissa
I got a sample of this from my naturopath a long time ago. First of all it lasted me such a long time, and secondly it is light, natural and local. three wins!!

This gel is miraculous. We use it on everything - from eczema and acne to burns and scrapes. It works wonders and absorbs fast. We've re-ordered several times and will continue to do so!
10/01/2021, By Robz
I got this product as a freebie. It definitely helps with breakouts.. reduces redness and drying out spots. But I’m reviewing because out of desperation we put some on my niece’s mosquito bites. It soothed it immediately and prevented her from scratching herself open as usual. I ordered some more now:-)
12/12/2020, By Nicole
I've been using this product for just over a week to help with hormonal acne and skin irritated by wearing a mask most days, and so far my skin has improved quite a bit - its less red, less pimples and bumps and the texture feels smoother as well with the irritation being reduced. Very happy :)
09/12/2020, By Lili
I bought this for my partner who has quite sensitive skin, prone to reacting. Seems to help and soothe so far!
08/08/2020, By Margi
I applied it liberally to the affected areas. Rubbed it in well. It dried and became crumbly. It all crumbled off. Bought 2 tubes. What a waste of my money!
23/07/2020, By Chantal
Great for scrapes and anything that needs antibacterial / soothing
13/07/2020, By Jessica
This stuff is amazing! I’ve only used it for a week on hormonal acne and there is a massive improvement. It also works on eczema. Will definitely purchase this again
25/05/2020, By Kgapa
I’ve been struggling with fungal acne on my forehead for about 2 years now and finally it seems to be fading into oblivion. I spent so much in over the counter anti fungals and they’d have a temporary effect and still leave fungi alive. Now I’m optimistic that it’ll be the end of my struggle
20/05/2020, By Tayla
Bought my first tube in 2018 and it's been a staple in my life ever since. I use it as a "toner" after cleansing, as a post shave balm, and on any skin irritations like my eczema flare ups. Works like a bomb - so soothing, and cooling :) LOVE IT!!
03/05/2020, By Zareena
Developed a rash on my chest and started using a cortisone based ointment and it didn’t go away. I used this Clear skin gel and within two days my rash is almost gone! It’s amazing
17/04/2020, By Phoenix
A great all rounder. Purchased it to manage eczema on my hands. Seems to soothe and stop the itching. I also suffered some irritation from using strong hand sanitiser and this healed the cracks. Overuse of the product can start irritating the skin but it could be due to the essential oils in the product.
16/04/2020, By alyx
gentle on the skin
09/02/2020, By Gabriella
Great product but the packaging lets it down – as soon as you open the bottom it oozes out. Would be 5 out of 5 if the packaging changed!
22/01/2020, By Annelien
This preparation helps control blackheads and acne.
16/12/2019, By Marlena
I bought three tubes of this product as my skin often itches for no apparent reason. I applied it, but it made no difference. Waiting to use it on eczema and bug bites. Find that FTN expects clients to write a review TOO SOON, not giving us enough time to write an honest review. It takes time to notice a difference, also often I do not open all the products I bought immediately, so feel pushed to write a review and cannot be honest
14/12/2019, By Alice
A lightweight product that absorbs well and does not leave a sticky residue. I have just started using it and it has helped my sensitive skin!
30/11/2019, By Raeghaana
I used this for rashes on my kids and bites. It works very well. It doesnt smell bad and it keeps the skin cool.
30/11/2019, By Tj
Love this product!!!! Works so well for my skin and soothes any redness. Really impressed.
29/11/2019, By Nasreen
Purchasing this again because it has helped my daughter's eczema so much! I've also used it to soothe hormonal chin breakouts and flea bites.
11/10/2019, By Bernie
My daughter has been using this for her acne and it has cleared up very nicely.
10/10/2019, By MK
This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. So so so happy I found this gem. Anything from scrapes and cuts to excema and skin break-outs. I even mix a little bit with charcoal powder and use it as a bi-weekly face mask. Totally in love with this product and everyone I've told about it, agrees.
16/09/2019, By Thulisani
This skin gel is magic!! It provides INSTANT relief to pain caused by burns, cuts...anything really. Everybody should have this gel in their home. I cannot even explain just how effective it is!
06/05/2019, By Angie
This is such a great product!! Using it for about 10days now and I could see a difference in my skin as well as my teenage daughter's as early as the second day! I battle with hormonal acne and is so very thankful that I actually found something that works and the very best bonus is.. its natural!
01/04/2019, By Yvette
love this gel for skin irritations and burns, it's brilliant. Would't use it as a daily "moisturiser" for face, didn't do much for my skin - but excellent for irritations and burns
11/03/2019, By Avril
This gel has not done much for my face HOWEVER.... It is totally brilliant for any other skin problems. From bites to sunburn to other skin infections. A must have for everyone.
26/02/2019, By Caddie
Soothing, cool and not oily
17/02/2019, By Nichole
Helps soothe acne, but leaves a flaky residue on the skin
07/02/2019, By Tseleng
When I first purchased this product it helped me with my psoriasis/eczema. I then got some for my grandma and my boyfriend to try. Kept repurchasing until my psoriasis/eczema got worse and this product is not helping at all. I really do not like these expensive and inconsistent products that only work the first few times then die out throughout. My skin is bad now and I am not sure if this product helped worsen it. Sigh

10/01/2019, By mahtaab
works wonders from acne to soothing aggravated skin. just a dab of the gel onto affected areas will help immediately.
05/01/2019, By Maya
Excellent product! I bought this for my 14-year-old daughter and now she doesn't want to be without it! Works extremely well for acne; so much so that her friends started asking her what she was using as they could see the results!! Thank you for a quality product that does what it says and that can be used with a clear conscience.
02/01/2019, By Lizette
I tried this gel out of desperation and was wonderfully surprised at the results. It cleared a skin irritation I have been battling with for months. Definitely recommend this for skin problems.
25/12/2018, By Moses
I have been using this product for almost anything you can think of on my body. The results are just breathtaking. Have been a loyal customer for close to 5 years now and would recommend this to anyone who has suffered for prolonged periods and so desperately need results.
06/12/2018, By Tayla_made
This gel is a staple in my daily skincare routine. I’ve been using it for over a month now. I have sensitive, acne prone skin and this product keeps my pimples at bay and soothes any skin irritations.

This gel is also great for post waxing/shaving, insect bites and minor wounds.

I hardly wear makeup, so I apply the gel morning and night before moisturizing. I advise that you don’t apply this before makeup application. The gel creates a protective ‘layer’ on the skin, and your foundation will start to peel/flake off. Eeeek.

Other than that, I really love this multi-purpose gel and will continue to purchase it :)
03/12/2018, By Janice
This has helped clear some adult acne and I have used on my kids cuts. It's gentle yet effective
01/12/2018, By Elle
Really great product! I use it on my skin, very natural and gentle but heals and doesn't leave a scar.
01/12/2018, By Zee
very nice lotion for skinissues
30/11/2018, By Suzanne
So far I have used this on burns, insect bites and my oudtshoorn and it has helped ease the itch and burn. Would definitely buy it again.
21/11/2018, By Kayla
This is a fantastic product!
I got athletes foot after getting a pedicure and this sorted it out in the matter of a week or so!
I’m very impressed and will definitely have this in my house
16/11/2018, By D
The product is very watery. It is definitely not for people with bad acne. It made my skin considerably worse. It does not moisturize but clogs pores and dries the skin out.
26/10/2018, By anonymous
Got this free with a combo deal. Good to use on breakouts.
07/10/2018, By Chantal
Thanks to Faithful's brilliant samples, I used this on an insect bite that was extremely itchy and inflamed - instant relief that lasted... This will become a standard in my home-care kit.
16/09/2018, By Cass
This gel works great on its own or as a serum under my daily moisturiser. I noticed improved skin texture and fewer breakouts after a few weeks. It's also great for skin irritations of any kind.
29/08/2018, By Jeremy52
It works but I found the gel application a bit unsatisfying, I find a cream easier to apply and massage in. Please note that this review is for the product before they added kigelia.
22/08/2018, By Monica
This gel is a wonder gel. I bought it to help with my hormonal acne and it really works! From immediate application, spots are calmed down and within a day they are gone. It has worked where numerous other creams/gels and potions have done nothing. I don't think I could live without this stuff!
07/08/2018, By Nadia
Works well on burns and minor cuts
26/06/2018, By Nicola
I saw a review that said it cleared up pimples and I was sceptical but optimistic so I bought some and tried it - I'm a convert! The gel formed a light "skin" around the pimple, that I just peeled off a few minutes later, and the spot was stopped in its tracks.

I use it nearly every day in conjunction with Vitamin E oil. I apply the gel as a 'base coat' and find that it helps with absorption of the oil. It works well with the oil. However, on its own, it does not seem to be properly absorbed into the skin and leaves a layer on the face which peels off.
29/04/2018, By Nicola
Excellent product, easily absorbed into my skin and clearing up my blemishes.
30/01/2018, By chantel
I received this as a sample and I think its a very good product. its very cooling and calming on the skin. I gave my cousin a little to try and it dried up her pimples. I will be sure to get me a tub of this when I purchase again.
19/01/2018, By MK
This product is miraculous - absolutely love it and plan on ordering again and again (please don't ever stop making this product!). Sorted out the problem skin on my upper arms and legs in no time. Amazing fresh feel after application and a little really goes a long way. This is seriously a great buy!
17/01/2018, By Nicole
I used this on a bruise and it healed so well. I did put it in the fridge which helps with the cooling effects.
16/01/2018, By Niri
I received a free sample and used that for two weeks on my face, and found it worked really well, so a week ago i ordered a tube - really nice product.
20/12/2017, By Lindie
Really cant say its effective. seems to make my eczema flare up worse. stopped using it.
11/10/2017, By rochelle
really great for my sensitive skin. Has cleared up my blemishes a lot.
08/10/2017, By Tracey
I gave my sample to my mom who has eczema and she asked me to order her some.
01/10/2017, By Natasha
I received this as a sample. I love the product. My face feels so smooth. Will be ordering a big tub soon.
31/08/2017, By MK
Great product. Received as sample with previous order and now ordering a big tub. Cleared my skin within days as well as my boyfriend's - we love it!
11/08/2017, By Lindsey
This felt wonderful on my facial skin when I was having breakouts and itchy dry eczema. It takes a while to kick in though and I've stopped using it and opted for aloe vera gel instead.
27/06/2017, By Lerats
I received a sample of this gel with a previous order and I love it. It has helped keep my skin clear!
09/06/2017, By Christine
Received this as a sample and it is stunning. It assists with hormonal bumps. It does not burn or stings, but it cools and heals.
23/05/2017, By Chey
I received a free sample with one of my previous orders and have found it to be a very effective and soothing product for treating buns, insect bites, cuts and scratches, definitely a must have in any natural first aid kit.
26/02/2017, By Eline
While I don have anything negative to say about this (lightweight on the skin, and no offensive smell), I honestly can say that Ive noticed any improvement with the use of this product either, has tried it repeatedly on a number of skin ailments.
21/01/2017, By Steph
I received a sample of this gel with a previous order and I must say, I am blown away at how well it works! I had a few big and nasty pimples pop up on my face and this gel cleared them up within a day!
08/10/2015, By Maureen
I received a sample with one of my orders and I keep the sample in my make up bag, along with a small bottle of lavender essential oil. This gel is great to use for just about anything - cuts scratches, insect bites. I will order a full size as soon as this sample is used up. I wonder why it is not listed as being cruelty-free as the product description states that it is approved by BWC. That makes it a bonus for me!
01/06/2015, By Hafizah Anwary
Thank you so much for cream and gel! It works like a bomb!! Grandad dislocated his foot last year, and has arthritis, he had pain and after applying, he felt almost instant relief in the african potato cream.. thank you for making such wonderful products :)
