Patanjali Aloe Vera gel comes in a clear squeeze tube with orange twist open lid. It is hygienic, travel-friendly on its own and also comes in a smaller size which can be great to take along. The aloe vera is green in color. It gives a cooling sensation when I apply it to my skin.
It is 99 % Aloe vera gel. I have been using this daily at morning and night as a moisturizer for the last 8 to 9 weeks. It works really well. It is inexpensive and can be used by itself or mixed with face masks and hair packs. Patanjali Aloe Vera gel contains Vitamin E making it a great moisturizer. It is a fantastic addition to skincare.

Brihans Aloe Vera gel comes in a clear plastic tube with a white twist open lid. The packaging is cute but not hygienic as you need to dip your finger to take out the product. The aloe vera gel is green in color.
The brand has endorsed this as a multi-purpose product, however, I used this for some months as my moisturizer only. Sometimes I also use this for my wounds. It is very cooling to the skin but does not contain Vitamin E. I have dry skin and it has worked pretty well for me this summer.
Both the Patanjali Aloe vera gel and Brihans Green Leaf Aloe vera gel serve the same purpose and also contain added color. I would prefer Patanjali aloe vera gel out of the two because it comes in a tube and is hygienic. The packaging is travel-friendly and it makes my skin really soft.
Editor’s Note: Thank you for the detailed review and comparison post, Suzanna. I have used the Brihan’s Green Leaf Aloe Vera gel before and also natural aloe vera gel. Natural Aloe vera gel gives a cooling sensation to the skin but it is not as pronounced as the store-bought varieties. I think many of the packaged Aloe vera gels have a bit of menthol or something because of which they impart a more noticeable cooling sensation. I think Aloe vera gel works best for oily and normal skin types, I have dry skin so I only use it during summer. Good to know that the Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel contains Vitamin E. It might turn out to be more moisturizing than normal aloe vera gel. Out of Aloe based products, I really love The Body Shop Aloe Gentle Facial Wash.
