Aloe Vera Gel as a moistureizer?

Has anyone done this? The clear gel kind. I have an entire bottle of it and thought maybe it would make a good moistureizer?

I searched and could not find anything relating to the topic

If it's 99.9% or 100% aloe, then go for it, it's great, don't overuse it or else it will dry your skin.

silly question....how do i know if it is 100%? it does not say it on the bottle, so i am assuming it is not :(

I use lily of the desert which it 99%. I used to use the fruit of the earth stuff but that's not really 100%. It burned and made my eyes water. Lily of the desert is so much better, no stinging or anything. Way more moisturizing the fruit of the earth.

I use aloe after I wash my face or whatever. Then, I apply a moisturizer..so essentially, I use both Aloe and a Moisturizer..its worked pretty good so far

It made your eyes water because Aloe is technically from the onion family. All aloe does this. :rolleyes:

Then why doeesn't lily of the desert make my eyes water or irritate me in any other way? I think it was something else in the other one what irritated me.

It's a fact aloe vera is from onion family. If your eyes water then you're getting the purest form. If they don't then you're not.
