|Pros||Everything, it works!|
|Bottom line||Aloe Vera is totally awesome, I have the real plant and I cut a small piece and get the stick stuff and rub on my skin where the acne is at night and the acne is gone by the next day.|
I bought my plant for $6 at Trader Joe's.
|Pros||Everything! Drying up current cysts, fading scars, feels cool and refreshing on skin.|
|Bottom line||I have used a variety of different natural products on my skin to try to heal cysts and to fade redmarks and scars. Vit E and Tea Tree Oil broke me out. ACV dried me out. Aloe is the perfect remedy for my skin. I started using it a week ago. I don't use the plant. I buy the filler, which is liquid, and keep it in the fridge. In the morning and night, I use a cotton ball and apply the liquid liberally to my skin. It has been great! My active acne is drying up, and it is fading old marks. It feels cool, refreshing, and clean on my skin also, whereas other things such as E and Honey, although good for the skin (minus the breakouts I get from the E), are very messy. This is something I can use under my make up that doesn't make a big mess. Keep in mind though I use the filler, it is the pulp put into liquid form. I have cystic acne and not much helps clear it up. I would highly highly recommend trying aloe.|
|Pros||-I haven't had any new spots since using product and I had been getting one or two on an almost daily basis.|
-My dry skin and red marks from previous spots are clearing up.
-Fairly inexpensive and easy to find
(approx. $7.85 per 200ml bottle)
|Cons||None so far; I don't find that it's sticky and I can use it during the day in small amounts but I usually apply it before bed.|
|Bottom line||I use Aloe Pura Brand Organic Aloe Vera with Antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E |
99.9% Bio Active Aloe Vera
I feel like I have finally found something that doesn't have any drawbacks. I had been using 2.5% BP but that leaves my skin very dry, red and scaly but the aloe vera seems to be actually healing my skin.
