Aloe Vera is a wonderful plant that can be used for many types of skin ailments, but most of all for sunburns and dried skin. I was excited to try out this product from one of my favorite eco friendly brands, Made From Earth. This Aloe Vera Skin Treatment should be used for healing the skin from the effects of daily sun exposure, and is the most potent and natural form of aloe vera you can buy in a jar. The aloe vera also releases enzymes and natural vitamins into your skin. This treatment is also pH balanced for face & body applications.
To use, simple apply a small amount on your skin, massaging it to help it absorb into your skin. Once it's fully absorbed, you can apply a second time to help your skin even more. Use this 2 to 3 times a week when necessary.
Granted, we haven't had a ton of sun around here yet, so I can't comment on how well it could help with sunburned skin, but one thing I can say is that it's absolutely wonderful on dried, tight skin. You can keep the jar in your fridge for a ‘cooling’ effect on the skin - as well as helping it last longer - and it's a heavenly feeling. I guessing this Aloe Vera Skin Treatment is probably the next best thing to having an actual aloe vera plant and cutting it up to get the juice that way - but this is a lot more convenient! ;) My sensitive skin didn't react to it at all, and the scent is not overwhelming at all.
All of Made From Earth products are all cruelty free and not tested on animals. The vegan ingredients used in the Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment are all organic and it's chemical free - so no worries about bad for you ingredients like propylene glycol. It's also made here in the USA! The jar is even recyclable. (And since it's 2 oz, it can go in your carry on when you're flying!)
A two ounce jar of Made From Earth Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment retails for $14.99, and you can purchase it online via their website. There is free shipping on all order over $75 going right now.
