Best product ever!! I use this as my daily face moisturizer and it works wonders on my acne prone skin. I've been using this for years and you can't beat the quality or price. It's slightly sticky when it goes on,but dries quickly. Love this, will buy it forever.

For a while I was using aloe on my face daily. I used it on dry patches my regular lotion couldn't help, as a spot treatment for cystic acne, and I applied it to fade red marks left after a breakout. It usually worked like a miracle product. When I applied it as a spot treatment, it VERY quickly reduced the size of any cystic acne breakouts on my cheeks. It usually made any bump disappear in 2-5 days without leaving a dry flaky mess in it's place. It seemed to REALLY be helping fade the red marks, too. And on the occasions I just couldn't resist picking my skin, I'd use aloe afterwards and it always prevented the picked area from becoming infected, inflamed, or scabbed. Despite all that is wonderful about aloe vera, I quit using it daily, if at all... It made my cheeks break out in a million tiny white bumps and as long as i was consistently using it nothing could make the white bumps go away. I would still highly reccommend it to anyone else though. My skin is very finicky.

I use this as a shaving gel and it is excellent. I am prone to razor burn and red bumps, but I never have a problem when I use this. I don't use this as a moisturizer though because it is not moisturizing enough for my dry skin.

I live in Australia and prefer to buy australian products whenever possible. However I have found FOTE Aloe Vera Gel to be the best, so I'm sticking to it. Mixed with rosewater and glycerin it makes a fantastic light moisturiser for oily skin, soothes sunburnt skin and is just an all round good product. I like to use it under my zinc oxide sunblock to get rid of that tight heavy feeling that mineral only sunblocks sometimes give. This will be a staple in my bathroom for many years.

Best pure aloe vera, incredibly cheap. I use this on my face and it acts as a very light moisturizer while also softening my skin. Does not break me out. I also used it on a scar from surgery while it was healing.

This product is a great (mostly) aloe vera product, I have fair skin which easily burns even when I remember to wear sunscreen on occasion - this is truly a godsend for those times, it helps soothe, cool and heal quickly.I haven't tried this on my face, but I might out of curiosity to see what happens. This is much, much better than the aloe that is blue or green colored.I also feel I need to chip in my 2 cents about the toxic additives in this product - first off, the toxicity is pretty low so unless you're consuming this stuff by the bowl it's probably NOT going to cause you any problems. Second, I feel a need to comment on the statement "The skin absorbs aloe about 20 times faster than water which means all the additives get absorbed with it" - this absorption rate of aloe vera might be true, but just because the aloe itself absorbs into your skin faster does not mean that the additives will as well! In order for aloe to do this, it would have to have the properties of a carrier molecule - which to the best of my knowledge (and some quick research) it does not have these properties. In labs, we work with many toxic chemicals that are potentially toxic without using gloves because they are unable to absorb through the skin unless mixed with a chemical like DMSO, a good handwashing and they're nothing to worry about. My advice would be to not use this product on open wounds or near any orifices as well as washing your hands after use.

This is quickly becoming the most versatile beauty product that I own. I use it at night as a moisturizer after I apply benzoyl peroxide and sometimes in the morning as a makeup primer. It really works well to mattify my oily skin. Fruit of the Earth is also wonderful as a hair gel. My hair is light and bouncy no matter how much I use, and it is great at taming frizz. I've been reading that other reviewers apply it after they pluck their eyebrows, and I'm excited to try it for this. I also read that it can be mixed for an aspirin mask, which would be a good occasional alternative to the honey I usually use. Not to mention how great this stuff is for sunburns.I love this aloe vera gel and strongly recommend it to anyone, especially those with sensitive acne-prone skin. This has been a lifesaver!UPDATE: I've started shaving with aloe vera gel in a pinch....like when I get home from work, decide to change into shorts and realize I haven't shaved in a couple days. Just apply a thin layer like shave gel and it works great. I smooth in the excess afterwards and don't even need lotion. Just make sure to rinse the razor really well.

I don't find this to kill pimples at all. I also don't find it to be moisturizing. However, it is very cooling and soothing, and it tightens and mattifies skin. I put on a pea-size of aloe in the morning after my Moisture Surge spray, before my sunscreen, and it really makes a difference in controlling oiliness throughout the day. And because it's so cheap, I will happily slather on that pea-sized amount with zero guilt. I will say, however, that it tends to be drying. Moisture spray + aloe = balanced skin that's hydrated but non-oily.

this is the ONLY thing that works on the dehydrated/flaky patches of rough skin I get around my nose and cheeks!! I also use this to smooth down frizziness on my hair, on scaly elbows, and on zits to speed up healing...but normally I use this on top of regular moisturizer when my face gets flaky/irritated, it works miracles and soothes instantly when it comes to that, I also use this mixed with powdered milk to make a face mask. This is a must have and I always have a large tube of Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel in my bathroom cabinet.

I started using this a few years back as my night time moisturizer. It is GREAT. This is the one product that will never ever cause me to break out. It leaves my skin very soft! Reduces my redness too.. ahh.. the best.
