I much prefer aloe vera gel, which is fresher and a little more effective, but as far as aloe vera gellies go, Lily of the Desert seems the way to go. I've used this on and off for a while now, and it definitely helps heal, soothe, moisturize, and control oil production. But I definitely don't like the feeling of gelly as much as gel--gelly feels like glycerin to me, and neither gelly nor glycerin seem to allow my skin to breathe as well as gel does.

I can get this for about $8 at my local co-op.

This has been my staple moisturizer for years. I'm 34 (with oily skin, can't use lotions or creams w/out causing a breakout) and apparently look much younger, which may be partially attributable to my religious use of this, as that is one of the properties often attributed to aloe. Wouldn't be without it.

Overall, I like this stuff a lot. It makes for a light moisturizer, is free of random chemicals, has no scent, absorbs quickly, makes my combination skin feel smooth but not taut or uncomfortable, and somehow leaves a semi-matte finish. No miracles insofar as my skin is concerned, but it hasn't dried it out or done anything bad either. You also get quite a lot in the tube and it's a handy little multi-purpose item. I would definitely repurchase.

DESCRIPTION OF ME: Very dry, sensitive skin that doesn’t tolerate too much fragrance/additives well.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: From the package: “Effective relief from: Sunburn, minor cuts and burns, bites, chaffing, cold sores, rash and skin irritations. A soothing moisturizer for sensitive skin.”

PACKAGE: Bottle stands upright w/product draining down towards the bottom and holds about 4 fluid ounces of product. Travels well.

CONSISTENCY/TEXTURE: Medium gel consistency that absorbs fairly fast upon application.

SMELL: No scent whatsoever.

MOISTURIZING? This is moisturizing if you have particularly oily skin, otherwise you may want to invest in a more traditional lotion. However, it’s great for the occasional sunburn or other minor irritations.

BREAKOUTS/SENSITIVITY: None. In fact, it probably helps to zap zits by reducing the inflammation.

OVERALL: A good aloe vera product that is more transportable than a plant, but probably just as pure. I’ll definitely be repurchasing.

INGREDIENTS: 99.5% Certified Organic Aloe Vera Gel, Carbomer 940, Vitamins A, C, and E.
