I was soooo excited trying this. People say it's moisturizing, defines curls, heals acne, soothes skin, etc. I bought this for a good price and tried it for all of those things. Here's my review for all of them:
As a curl definer- It was OK...not that great. It dried out my hair and made so of it straight (?) I don't even know how that happened.
As a shave gel- At first, this was AWESOME! No nicks, cuts, or anything. However, the next day, I noticed bumps :( This might have been from my razor, but not so sure.
As a moisturizer- Disappointing. I heard it makes skin soft and hydrated, but not for me. It actually dried my skin out! Not to the point of flaking or anything, just tightness. It simply didn't do what a moisturizer should..
As a spot treatment- This was actually pretty good. When I apply a lot to a blemish or scar, it helps it go away a lot faster and reduces redness a little.
*Bottom line* I wasn't really happy with this because it didn't do all the things aloe is said to do. I started thinking, though, that might be because of all of the additives. It says 100%...but just read the label. I'm going to use this after my cleanser but before my moisturizer--kind of like a toner. I'll keep using this as a spot treatment for blemishes and scars, but when this runs out, I'm buying the actual plant. :)
