15 years ago as my mom was picking me up from school, she fell on a jeepney and injured her foot. She thought her injuries were minor and just let it be. Years later, her ankle kept on scabbing, bleeding at times, and flaking. She’s used OTC treatments, had herself injected with steriods by her doctors, etc. But none worked. We really thought it was a lost cause and my mom was both frustrated and depressed. Until.
Last year, Grace Cosmetics sent me a message on instagram asking me if I wanted to try their products. “What is it?” I asked. It was mostly aloe based and they told me it’s great for people with skin conditions like eczema. I told them that I don’t have such, but I suddenly thought of my mom.
“There’s nothing to lose if we try”. As I asked my mom to give Grace Cosmetics a go. So here I am, 30+ days later. Writing a review, because my mom’s wounds are miraculously in a better condition now.
Who is Grace Cosmetics?
Unlike most leading brand skin care products, the number one ingredient used in all Grace Cosmetics Products is Certified Organic Aloe Vera rather than water (listed as aqua on product ingredients). The reason Grace Cosmetics is so unique is that when this high content of Aloe Vera is combined with their natural and botanical ingredients, you get lasting results.
What is Aloe Vera?
Basically, Aloe Vera is a species of cactus which is well known for its fat leaves which happen to contain a sort of gel. This gel is what people look for and aim to extract because of the great amount of health benefits that it possesses.
Aloe Vera gel is famous for having cooling, as well as, healing properties. It treats the external layers of the skin, provides it with moisture and helps the skin maintain that moisture.
Grace Cosmetics Review
So my mom’s care regimen consists of drinking 80ml of Grace Aloe Juice then applying both the massage lotion and medicated cream twice a day. See the amazing before & after pictures at the end of this post!
It comes in a 1 Litre Bottle and must be consumed immediately (10-15 days). The container is huge and my mom told me it can take more than 1 person to finish the entire bottle in 10 days. The whole family could enjoy the benefits of taking Aloe Vera juice too!
What does it taste like? It’s between sweet, bitter, but close to smelling like shower cleaner. My mom mixes it with juice to improve the taste. But she told me she’ll tolerate it as long as it works.
Medicated Skin Cream (100ml: 1,800php, 40ml: 799php) Massage Lotion (100ml: 1,600php, 40ml: 799php)
She then told me that applying the massage lotion gives her tired feet a cool and soothing sensation. The medicated skin cream instantly relieves the itchiness she always feels on her ankle.

Before & After Results
This is just after 30 days of using Grace Cosmetics. To be honest I wasn’t expecting any results and was ready to tell them “I’m sorry it didn’t work, I couldn’t post a review” but here I am, wanting to share with you my mom’s story that it does work.
- Less itch
- Stopped scarring
- Softer Skin
- Wounds healed
Me and my mom are thankful for the opportunity to experience the wonderful benefits of using Grace Cosmetics and yep, I’m a skeptic but now I’m a believer.
