This gel is of very good quality. Earlier I have used this gel which I bought from the stores. This time I bought it from Amazon because of the offer / discount. In this brand , Biotique, this is my favourite product and I always keep a bottle of it with me. This gel sooth es my skin during post hair removal and also in case of any active pimple on my face . It actually works sometimes better than aloe vera gel, whether branded or pure from the plant.
