Real VS Fake Nature Republic Soothing and Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

          With the popularity of the Nature Republic Aloe Vera gel, there are definitely fake ones out there. Even though I'm not an expert, but before I bought mine, I did sooooo much research beforehand. Before you guys read this I want to say, not all of this is mine own, what I did is go through many Chinese articles, and I translate them, so more people could know if they bought the real Aloe Vera gel. 



Before you even open the product check the opening lines on the side of the plastic package. The real one is almost twice as wide as the fake ones.

The real gel has shinning water marks on the top, which are made in detail, and when you glide your hands over them, you can feel the bumps of where the water marks are.

The real gel has many small air bubbles in between the gel. When you shake the bottle you can hear the "texture", the fake ones sounds very different.


On the back under the scanning bar code the number should start with 880, if it does not start with 880, it means that the product was not made in Korea. The first 8 should be bold, also the website on the left should end in .com.


The print in English on the fourth line on the back should be the same as the Korean letters for the first three lines, they should be bold.


There should be  made date printed on the back, it should be printed on top of the other writings. There should be 2 Korean letters at the very end of the date. Those two Korean letters should be slightly narrower than the numbers.


After you apply on the hands it should be absorbed by the skin in 10 mins (of course it depends on how much you apply). The real gel looks very clear, it has the clarity of water, and the smell should be a fresh aloe smell. The fake ones smells too strong, and you can clearly smell the alcohol. When you apply the fake one of the skin it takes longer to absorb, after it dries if you wash it the texture is very slimy. The texture of the gel itself is sticky.


In most cases (NOT always, because of shipping reasons) the very first time you open the cap to the gel, you have to take the plastic film off to get to the actual product. But the second time you open the product the plastic film should stick to the cap, and you would have to peal the plastic off the cap.

Also on the plastic film the name NATURE REPUBLIC on it.

Hope this was helpful to all of you.
Thanks for reading.

  3. hii there! my aloe hasnt been working for awhile now and this is my second container. it leaves a slimy, rough feeling when it stars to aborbs and when it dries up, no more soft face :( however, everything is there is presented as the real one excluding the plastic covering inside the container. its thiner than the first one i had so i was very confused as to why that was.

    1. to be safe, pls don't continue on using them, because the latest story someone bought the fake one and it ruins her skin until she is admit in hospital.nowadays there are a cheap one that sell at guardian or watson, that is more safe rather than the fake one 😊

    2. the original one is not expensive at all... why get the fake one? the real one retails for about 29. or hermo sells it really cheaply too. is it worth to risk our skin for fake products?
