Love this aloe gel! The best one I've tried. The fruit of the earth aloe gel broke me out every time. Not this stuff it really help dry out your acne.love love love it!
This product is wonderful. It really soothes sunburnt skin and makes it very soft. When my skin is super dry I put it on over top of my Nivea Creme before bed and let it soak throuought the night. When I wake up in the morning my skin is suple and glowing. 100% recomend this product. The only downside is the strong smell, but it doesnt linger. The bottle is HUGE so when I finally run out I will be repurchasing.
Aloe itself is a cure to alot!
it helps get rid of sunburn, relieves the painful burning and itching that comes along with the healing.
it tones down the redness in your face if you use it as a moisterizer just make sure to stay away from your eyes cause it burns!
you can also use it as an acne spot treatment and itll make the redness in the pimple go away cutting down the amount of makeup used when concieling it and its cheap!
natural aloe you can wash your face with and sleep overnight with it on, since there is chemicals in this one i wouldnt suggest that!
Excellent product. I don't always use it, but I bust it out when my skin is irritated. Really I should use it every day. It always works and it's relatively cheap, and it's not sticky like aloe directly from the plant.
YES! YES! YES! only aloe vera I would ever trust, I tried others that claimed to be all natural and blah blah blah but they broke me out, stung my eyes and did not live up to the standard that this aloe vera sets
This doesn't sting the eyes when put all over the face, doesn't break me out and its just perfect really... the price is even cheap
Banana boat is the only aloe I will ever use I will never use another aloe again after the experience I had with "fruit of the earth" aloe which stings your eyes so much when you put it on your face (which is a sign of lots of chemicals being in there) and broke me out
I love this stuff and it seems to love my skin. Please note that this is not pure aloe vera, there is other stuff in there including glycerin, alcohol and fragrance. I am fine with all 3 but if you are not, be forewarned. I bought this to help with a sunburn, which it did. It feels cool and soothing. I love the scent of this, it's clean and citrusy and botanical. It's fairly strong so you may sniff before you buy to make sure it agrees with you. I sometimes use this as a light moisturizer for my very oily skin, especially in the summer and whenever my skin feels irritated. It seems to calm it down. Today I actually tried mixing it with my Colorstay foundation and ended up with a very nice tinted moisturizer. This is one of those products I can see always having on hand, well worth the few bucks I paid for it.
This stuff is amazing. This is the reason that I almost never have to wear any foundation, and the reason people always comment on hos soft my skin is. I practically bathe in this stuff. I put it on once or twice a day, and BAM, I'm baby-butt smooth. (:
This is like heaven in a bottle! I love the smell of aloe and this really soothes skin and moisturizes. It is a great all rounder and will definitely be getting again
This is a review for Banana Boat Aloe Gel as a makeup base and moisturizer. I have acne prone combination skin that also happens to be sensitive yet easily dehydrated in the non oily areas. Long story short is, I have had a tough time finding products that work for me due to the complicated nature of my problem skin.
I actually discovered this use for Aloe Vera by accident. I recently started a BP skincare regimen to control my acne, so my skin has been very red, flaky and irritated. My mother suggested I try applying Aloe Gel before bed to calm the irritation. After using it for a few days I noticed that not only was my skin was indeed less irritated, but it was somehow less greasy in the T-zone and less dehydrated everywhere else. It's almost as if the Aloe stabilized my skin to some degree. On a whim, I decided to try it under my makeup and sure enough it made a decent primer. My makeup needed less powder to set, and far fewer touchups during the day. My search is still on for a HG primer but I'll continue to make this a part of my skincare/makeup routine until I find it... And in the meantime I will also throw away all the old primers that don't work for me.
Let's be realistic here though, if you are expecting aloe gel to be a miracle product that fills in pores, lines and wrinkles, controls your oil, makes your skin look airbrushed and makes your makeup last for days you will be sorely disappointed. But if you are someone like me who gets tired of using products that make your acne worse, try this stuff before buying anything else... You might be surprised at how effective it is, and if you hate it you can save it for summer sunburns.
This stuff is an all rounder for me. I use it to:
- Moisturize my face. Excellent! It makes my skin soo much clearer, softer and controls greasiness.
- Get rid of blemishes, the antibacterial quality of aloe is excellent to zap of nasty zits
- Makeup base
- Soothing eye gel
- Minor burns/cuts
- Eyebrow gel
It works so well for my skin. I see results almost immediately! Do yourself a favour, run to your nearest drugstore and try this yourself.
