Not sure for my skin needs but it works GREAT when you're burned! Not too keen on the smell though, I sometimes blend it and drink it (make sure you have something sweet to take the taste out of your mouth!)

Oh my god, this saved my skin.
A little background: I've had perfect skin up until 2 years ago, when I moved from a little town to a city. My face started breaking out like crazy, not in small-barely-there pimples, but large, pus-filled cysts, especially localized on my right cheek. I eventually realized it was my blackberry, I used it a lot and I guess bacteria found its way between the keys. Anyway, I was put on differin and benzoyl peroxide, and I upgraded to a samsung. The large painful cysts subsided but I still got red bumps (on my forehead) and some white heads (cheeks). I really don't know what's wrong with it, but my theory is that though the differin and BP helped my acne, they irritated my skin and made it more sensitive. I stopped using them, and started up a 2% salicylic acid treatment from clean and clear - this really brightened my skin and got rid of whiteheads; but after showers or cleansing, my face was flushed red, especially my forehead and cheek area. Not only that, but my cheeks looked fragile and I could see some underlying redness. My skin also looked really dehydrated and weird - I don't really know how to describe it. Ok so at this point I stopped everything and started moisturizing every night. Didn't really do much.
Hello Aloe vera. I've been using this every night for 2 weeks now, and my skin is saved. i still have acne scars and a bumpy forehead but both are improving. I highly recommend giving this a try; what I do is I bought the plant, cut it up into cubes as shown on youtube videos, placed it in a jar, and every night, I would rub a cube all over my face and sleep.. yeah it gets all over my pillows but I don't care - its natural stuff.
Oh and I do my research guys, not wikipedia-based research, but scientific journals/ pubmed, and this stuff was found to improve and accelerate wound healing in animal models, which probably explains the improved appearance of acne scars!

Originally, I used aloe vera gel on my forehead because of a burn I got from straightening my hair. I had this ugly zit near the burn, and I spread the gel all around the surrounding area of my burn. A few hours later, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my zit was quickly diminishing. After some research, I found that this stuff works for acne too, and ever since I've been using it for acne purposes. This is powerful against my zits, and would recommend it for anyone who has to deal with nasty ance, and, of course, burns.

I had a blemish I picked too much. It would not heal for weeks. I finally applied aloe vera gel , from AloeLife skin Gel 99% I had bought on Amazon but was always too skeptical to really use. After 2 nights of applying it on the blemish, it peeled revealing flat pinkish skin underneath...I was amazed! I have do have the aloe plants in my garden but thought they were too messy to cut and use...this bottle is great, it contains 99% certified active aloe, from the whole leaf, + vitamin a,c,e...from AloeLife...I m going to keep using it to see if it will help fading other old blemishes I have..

Used to like it as a aftersun product, but I am much more Aware of sunlight now, so I don´t feel the Need of the product. I like it in skincare products, but I think it´s not that impressive alone.

At the risk of sounding dramatic, I would actually say that aloe vera counts as medicine, not just a beauty product. It works THAT WELL for healing skin, it shocks me sometimes. I use the 99% aloe vera gel from Trader Joe's, and I always have a bottle with me, and usually a back-up bottle of it too. I use it every day under my moisturizers, and despite often changing my routine, I realized this is one thing I haven't changed for quite a while. It's nice to have something that I know for sure will help fix my skin. I use it after sun exposure (it sounds crazy but I think it actually wards off a sunburn if I apply it right when I get home, before the burn can develop), I use it when I have an allergic reaction, when I have a break-out, and especially when I've picked at my skin and turned little pimples into big, swollen red lumps, as I often do. (when will I ever learn not to do that??) It cools, reduces redness, and it takes the swelling down fast.
Furthermore, as someone who has had periodic (no pun intended) acne for over 12 years now, and has been a skin-picker for just as long, I have absolutely no scarring to speak of. It's surprising because I have literally dug holes in my skin, scraped the flesh off (sorry, I know it's gross!) trying to extract un-extractable pimples, and as long as I slather this on afterwards, I can minimize the damage. Especially if I put it on the affected areas like every hour or so, I can heal my injured skin quite fast.
Anecdotally, someone I work with told me one time that she burned herself in the nipple with her curling iron one time (ouch!!! I still cringe at the thought) and had an aloe vera plant in the house and immediately applied it to the burn, and it ended up barely making a mark and certainly left no scar.
I would never be without this!!

This is my LIFESAVER for the summer time. I am very sensitive to the sun. I am constantly burning. When I do I put it on my burns. Sure it stings, but man does it work! I use it for a variety of things. After shaving, my upper lip after bleaching, even when I have a big zit. It really does work. It is something everyone needs, you really never know when you need it.
