Has anyone used ALoe Vera Gel as their moisturizers before? If so what were your results?? Does it moisturize and does it cause pimples...?

I was just wondering since I have fairly oily combination skin and would rather use a gel than a cream for a moisturizer...

Little late but...I am a FIRM beleiver in Aloe Vera. It doesnt necessarily moisturize your skin (it will a little)...but it mainly LOCKS in moisutre and HEALS your skin. If you have oily skin...I bet it will be very beneficial to you. I have dry skin - so I still have to put a layer of moisturizer on top of the Aloe. If I waited a good 30 minutes - I wouldnt need anything but the Aloe...but Im usually in a rush in the morning and need to eat - so I throw a layer of Oil of Olay moisturizer so I can open my mouth to eat.

Anyway, I would definitely give Aloe a shot. I highly doubt it will do you any harm...and it will definitely help in the healing process. I was a zit popper...and Aloe really helped heal the scabs up quicly. It also helps take the redness out of your skin. BIG PLUS! The main power of Aloe is that it gets the second layer of skin healthy. Your first layer may be dried out and dead...the aloe will help give your next layer a chance....take out the redness and lock in moisture.

I use "Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera" - clear gel bottle...give it try! You can always use it on a sunburn if it doesnt help smile.gif
