Aloe Vera - QUESTION

Does anyone know if Aloe Vera absorbs into skin easily? I've never tried it, and I'm thinking it would just sit on your skin.

yea, it does tend to just sit on the skin in my experience. And it dries a bit gummy/tacky, and then it wants to flake off sometime after it dries.

I'm sure it is a wonderful healing product to put on cuts, but for all-over moisturization, I've not seen anyone stick with it.

I've never used it for acne purposes, but when I use it for sunburn I agree with Brandy that after it has soaked in a bit it does tend to leave the skin a bit tacky, and feel like some is left on the surface :)

In Australia we have this awesome aloe vera gel called Thursday Plantation 100% pure so basically it's just aloe vera crushed into a smooth gel and put into a tub lol. Anyways, it rubs straight into the skin and dries completely within like 2 secs. Thus it doesn't sit on the skin and you wouldn't even know it was ever there one you rub it in.

whenever ive used aloe vera gel (which was probably not 100% pure) it absorbed quickly, but gave me a dry type of feeling. does the same to my boyfriend. but thats just us.
