The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel Review

The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel soothes skin and provide intensive hydration. Bamboo extract is again a pretty famous ingredient in korean skincare products when it comes to plant based natural ingredients. Bamboo extract is known to replenish skin collagen, strengthen skin barrier and prevent moisture loss. Sounds appealing!! 😉🤓

We all must have used some kind of Aloe vera based skincare product. I was really intrigued with the idea of Bamboo gel. I wondered how different it would be from Aloe vera Gel. 🤔

Also, a little disclaimer here, that this product was used by my mother who has extremely Oily and Acne Prone Skin; even I did try a little bit on my skin just to see how far it works on my dry sensitive skin. ✍️


Skin Type:

The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel is suitable for Oily Skin, because of its hydrating quality. Oily skin has very disturbed oil-water balance, this is the reason why it’s very oily on surface but dehydrated from inside.

Therefore, Gel based hydrating moisturizer is more suitable for oily skin during summer and monsoon season. For Winter, go for a moisturizer with Gel-cream texture.


Not Suitable for: 

The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel is not suitable for Dry Skin, it’s literally useless!! or for anyone allergic to its ingredients.

I have dry skin and sensitive skin, When I first applied, it felt good but then after an hour my skin was dry as if nothing has been used on skin.



Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis: 

The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel

The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel has pretty simple ingredients. Its main ingredients are Bamboo Extract (99%) and Sodium Hyaluronate. These are awesome skin moisturizer! The only problem I find is the “Alcohol Denat” as the second ingredient in the list! So, if you are very particular for alcohol or your skin is sensitive or severely acne prone, Just skip the product!! If you have already purchased it, enjoy it as a light body moisturizer.

Rest from Cosdna Analysis, I don’t find any other major issue.


How to use:

The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel is a multipurpose gel, suitable for face and Body!!

  • Use it directly after cleansing OR
  • Use it after a light hydrating toner.
  • It can also be used as a wash off mask:
    • Keep it in the Refrigerator for at least an hour.
    • Apply thick layer on face and leave it for 15-30 mins.
    • Wash off with plain water OR just wipe off extra with a soft cloth!



This is the most interesting part of the product. The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel comes in a big plastic cylindrical jar, with an inner lid and a roll on cap.

The container looks like a cut out shoot of a giant bamboo. Its transparent at the base and with a green bamboo shoot like print on sides. They actually tried best to give a realistic feel to it.

Expiry Period: The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel has an after opening expiry period of 12 months.

The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel has a watery jelly like consistency. When spreading it feels like a water. The fragrance is really strong!! It’s not bad but a strong one, still it’s quite strong!! I wish it was mild or fragrance free.

The moment it touches skin, it starts melting like an ice cube! This is yet another fun part!




The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel
Spreads easily and is not that runny!!




Since, The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel is very light, it also gets absorbed quickly! For Oily skin it is sufficiently moisturizing but not for a dry skin.


The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel
Skin surely feels hydrated!!



I am reviewing this products after it got emptied, so the opinion is a final one. Honestly! There was no other benefit than just hydration and skin soothing!! No where close to the benefit of a bamboo extract. Maybe a higher concentrated product will be required and it is to be used for a longer term. What I think is that 99% is just the portion of main ingredient not the actual concentration (Of course!! ). 😕


  1. It’s very light and hydrating.
  2. Soothes Skin. (Its best to store in the fridge, for cooling effect!! ).
  3. Paraben Free
  4. Value for money!! (This is the cheapest Korean skincare product I have purchased in terms of money paid and quantity received).
  5. Easily available.


  1. Contains Alcohol, that too at the top of the list!!
  2. Strong fragrance. This can be subjective!! It’s just my opinion!!
  3. Can irritate sensitive skin or skin with severely active acne!! I did try it as a wash off mask on my dry sensitive skin, didn’t feel that good!! 😑

Do I recommend it? Yes! For normal oily skin! If Alcohol is not an issue!!

Will I repurchase? Ofcourse Not!! Why? For my dry skin, it’s useless! For oily skin, I am gonna explore more!!




Rating: 3/5

Other than just the idea of 99% bamboo extract and the interesting packaging, there is nothing appealing!! Luckily there was no skin irritation. So, in my opinion it’s just an average product!! If you have used it and have different thoughts, do comment down below!! 👇😉😊
