Hello and welcome ❤️ This is a post I wish I would find several months ago when I was trying to find how the Missha Premium Aloe Soothing Gel differs from Missha Premium Cica Aloe Soothing Gel. To everyone curious whether one is different from the other at all – all the details are in this post.
At a glance, these gels differ only in terms of the Centella Asiatica – it’s not included in the Premium Aloe Soothing gel and is one of the key ingredients in the Premium Cica Aloe Soothing gel. However, the number of natural extracts and the kinds of natural extracts added to these gels is also different – the former gel contains 10 of them and the latter – 13. By all means, it’s not the quantity of natural extracts that matters – it’s their quality, but still.
Another important difference for me is the texture – the Premium Aloe gel is thicker, a bit more goopy (but not in a bad way). This gel stays on the skin after application and doesn’t melt immediately. The Premium Cica Aloe gel is, on the other hand, more watery and starts melting iimmediately once applied. It doesn’t run or slide off the skin, but absorbs quicker thanks to this texture. Neither is good or bad – depends on your personal preferences which you like better.
In terms of scent and packaging: they are same. The scent is the typical aloe vera scent (fresh cucumbery scent you can often find in aloe-based skincare).
The table below sums everything up:
|MISSHA Premium Aloe Soothing Gel||MISSHA Premium Cica Aloe Soothing Gel|
|% of aloe vera gel||95||95|
|texture||thicker, a bit goopy gel||watery gel|
Overall, I’d say these gels are both excellent. I’d say that their efficiency is pretty much same. Neither of them caused any irritation whatsoever. I’d recommend any of them.
