Product Review: Fruit Of The Earth Aloe Vera Gel.

image

I was in a desperate need of an aloe vera gel and and after going to and fro, I finally settled for this. Even though, it’s not exactly readily available, I’m glad was able to get a supplier.

Non-oily moisturizer provides effective relief from Sunburn, Minor Burns, Skin irritations, Insect bites, Chafing, Itching, Dry Skin.

Apply liberally to sunburned or irritated skin as needed.

Price:
N1200

My experience:
I used this gel specifically for three things;
1).  As a moisturizer for my face and hair
2).  As a face primer
3). As a hair gel.

Little quantities go a long way for my face so I apply it with my fingers immediately after toning with ACV so it serves as both a moisturizer and a primer. After application, I leave it to dry so that it can be absorbed before applying my foundation. It soothes my face and leaving it feeling smooth. Because of the absence of oil in the gel, when it dries, it leaves no trace of any form so you just have a clean ‘canvas’ for your makeup.
I also add a bit to my spray bottle to moisturize my hair even though I use more for my face than my hair. The last time I did a flexi rod set, I use a bit of the gel with a leave-in to give my hair hold even though it didn’t turn out as expected because it wasn’t completely dry. I plan to try it again next time.

My Verdict:
This aloe vera gel gets the work done. Although I haven’t exactly used it for some of the things it’s recommended for, I have no doubt that it won’t disappoint. Yes, it is a staple and I plan to repurchase
