Don’t be deceived into thinking that this product is only for babies, because the Jar of Hope is certainly not.
According to label, this product can be applied on insect bites, inflammation, rashes, cuts, wounds, chicken pox, diaper rash, baby acne (and for me, adult acne too!) and sore nipples. It may also be used to help relieve burnout, stress, motion sickness. Then, I have read of mothers using this gel, as it is 100% natural, to soothe the gums of their teething babies.
Apart from that, I have read testimonials about adults who, like me, put it on their zits. True, it doesn’t magically let those pimples disappear in record time but it does help in relieving their redness. In my case, I noticed that they help my pimples get dry. And right now, with me pregnant, this is the only skin treatment product that I use on myself as I trust that this is an all-natural gel.
For my tot, I use it on his bruises, scrapes and insect bites a lot. In fact, if there’s one Indigo product that I most use on him, this is it. My son, who doesn’t like smelling mentholated creams and gels, has no problem “accepting this product” and he likes it so much he applies this on his skin himself, even demands to at times (even if there’s no need to). I reckon that it must be because the gel has cooling ffect on the skin that he loves (as advised I store it in the fridge to maintain its freshness). Oh well, Aloe Vera certainly cools and soothes the skin.
Among the IndigoManila products that I’ve tried, this one smells differently. It doesn’t have any lavender scent to it (and you’ll know why in latter part of this post, the ingredients) but has a yummy smells faint apple scent that I instantly love.
Ingredients: Blue Chamomile Essential oil, aloe vera gel, witch hazel extract, triple distilled water, vitamin E
Lastly, because of its all-around purpose and use and its healing properties, I give it my highest rate -a 5!
