A little while ago I tried out HealGel Eye and I really rated it. I’m still using it now on a daily basis as part of my beauty regime. So I was excited to be trying out HealGel Body.
HealGel Body is described as an easily absorbed and delicately scented gel that works intuitively to gently nourish and repair troublesome areas of skin anywhere on your body. To help it do that it ingredients like arnica and madecassoside liposomes, which have been picked out to target distressed areas to provide a calming and regenerative effect, nurturing the skin and helping to retain moisture throughout the day.
So much for the blurb, what did I think? Well I was intrigued to see when I came to write this review, that HealGel Body contains arnica which is usually recommended for bruising. Now given my propensity for walking into things that are below my eye line, my legs often have as many bruises as my 7-year-old manages to pick up in the playground. I noticed that the bruises seemed to be healing more quickly than usual, before I spotted arnica on the ingredient list.
HealGel body has a slightly different texture and feel to most body creams. It’s an opaque cream rather than the usual white to cream colour that I’ve come to expect. When you put it on, it doesn’t seem to sink in immediately, but it is absorbed within a few seconds. It doesn’t feel very rich, but it does leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturised. I must admit I found it a little odd at first because it was a bit different, but I’ve quickly warmed to it. HealGel Body is recommended to be used 2-3 times a day, but I’ve stuck to once unless I’ve had an evening bath to relax or something. HealGel products are a bit different to the norm, but they do seem very well formulated to do their job, and for me that’s what makes them stand out.
