I recently got the opportunity to try out some products from Forever Living, an Aloe Vera company. My friend, Kim, has been selling these products for a little over a year now, and she invited me to test some of them! She brought over a lovely basket with various goodies, and it was so much fun going through everything inside the basket. Forever Living Products work really hard to ensure the best quality Aloe Vera, so all the Aloe Vera is from their own plantations. They don’t use herbicides or pesticides in any of their plantations, they don’t test on animals and many of the products are considered Kosher and Halal.
Everything is made with Aloe Vera gel, which is, in my opinion, the next big thing. Moms joke that you can fix anything with breast milk or coconut oil. I think that Aloe Vera should be added to that list. It’s truly a versatile little plant!
When I first got the basket, I was surprised by how many things you could do with Aloe Vera. I was under the impression that it was only used on sunburns. Boy, was I wrong! In this basket was anything you could think of! From straight Aloe Vera gelly, to hand sanitizer, even an aftershave! My two favourite products were the Aloe Vera gelly and the shampoo and conditioner.
I have been growing out my hair lately, and this Shampoo and Conditioner is perfect for that. It is moisture-enriched, which was so great for the fall weather. I find that my hair starts to get really staticy and dry in the fall and winter, so this was a great help in combating that. I also really liked the way it smelled and the formula. It wasn’t to thick or too thin, it was just right.
My other favourite thing was the Aloe Vera Gelly. This is what is commonly known to be used to soothe sunburns, but it can be used for so many other things! I personally used it on the after-effects of a pimple. It helped the redness go down, and healed it right up! I also really liked that, unlike store brand Aloe Vera, this gelly was totally clear and so it doesn’t stain clothes. I enjoyed the smell as well. This can even be used on gums of teething babies as it’s perfectly safe to ingest.
