Product Review - Fruit of the earth Aloe vera

Hi beautiful people, 
I bring to you the Fruit of the earth aloevera gel and some of you may already know this product. I am not a fan of the raw aloe vera gel because of one my battle with acne. I peeled the skin off of the aloe vera plant, scooped the gel out and applied it on my face. Unaware of the taste and being a nail biter๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ which I am still struggling to push aside, I made the mistake of putting it in my mouth. Since then, I have been aloevera-phobic (the natural one of course).
So here is my review of this version. 

Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Gel, Triethanolamine, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Carbomer 940, Tetrasodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Diazolidinyl Urea.

Cooling soothing gel from nature's miracle plant of the ages.  Made with the most concentrated amount of  fresh Aloe Vera leaves on the market, this cooling gel, forms a protective barrier which helps retain moisture and promotes healing.  Non-oily moisturizer provides effective relief from sunburn, minor burns, skin irritations, insect bites, chafing, itching, dry skin. 

Aloevera itself has a lot of health benefits both internally and externally (hair and skin) but lets get on with the external benefits.
For hair and skin:
  • Aloevera gel can help with a lot of hair issues such as dandruff due to its moisturising properties.
  • High in vitamins and minerals such as Vitamins A, B, C , Magnesium, Iron, Potassium etc beneficial to your hair and skin.
  • It contains amino acids that can strengthen and add shine to your hair.
  • Improves overall health of the scalp.
  • Reduces inflammation.
  • Contains aloin and emodin which have antibacterial and antiviral properties beneficial to your hair and skin.
My take:
I got the fruit of the earth aloe vera gel as an alternative to use both as a leave-in (mixed with water and some oils) and a styling gel (edge control purposes). The moisturizing part worked for me but when I tried using it on my hair directly, it left it dry and kinda flaky so no more.  I also use it in my D..I.Y Deep conditioning mix (detailed recipe here).
I may have to revisit the use of the natural aloe vera because I want to go all N A T U R A L (I should go learn how to grow mine).
But I definitely like the Fruit of the earth Aloe vera gel as a substitute.

Igbocurls also gave us a video on how to extract and prepare the Natural aloevera gel.

Till next time, 
'Cisca O.
