Ohhh my, I love this stuff!! I'm glad I managed to get a couple bottles between it always being sold out (btw, I see why it's always selling out now). My last lotion I used for my face wouldn't ever fully absorb; I didn't mind it and just assumed all lotions would be like that. Then I got my paws on this stuff and wow!!! A tiny amount goes a LONG way, a dime size will cover my entire face and neck.
(Be careful squeezing it out of the bottle though, it always tries to give me way more than I need. The lightest squeeze will pop out the dime amount I need but anything more and it's excessive.)
Even after I've applied it and it seems like there is a lot of lotion "standing" on top of my skin, it absorbs wonderfully and leaves my skin SO incredibly soft. And this is coming from the chick with horribly sensitive, acne-prone skin.
No strong smells that I've noticed, no irritation at all. I also use the face cleanser from the same brand and that stuff is AMAZING, I recommend both! I use this gel before applying my makeup and then after washing my makeup off, no signs so far of "overdoing it" and my skin seems a lot happier with me lately. So far this line of aloe products continues to impress, I'm in love!
I wanted to love the hoolika hoolika brand so bad, I bought this and the cleansing foam. I have oily skin and I have never suffered from acne etc. I was using this after washing my face with the hoolika hoolika foaming facial wash, and I was including my moisturizer along with this. Girllll NO!!!!! this gave me flaky skin, dried me out so bad, I feel like I cant even stretch my face. Its true about the scent, it has an overpowering perfume that is very unecessary for sensitive face skin. I will still be using it on my feet. Im also gonna use the cleaner on my feet just so I can get my buck out if it. Overall I do not recomment this product, I feel it very harsh on the skin.

Best product ever! I love everything about it! I love what it does to my skin & the packaging! I loved it so much I ordered another one so I always have a back up!!! This deserves 5 stars. Not only did while shaving it remove all my peach fuzz but leaves my skin so smooth soft & moisturized!!

The product is really fantastic, but the packaging sucks. Impossible to get it all out, can't really squeeze it, and it squeezes out of the side of the cap instead of the intended hole.

I bought this for vacation in case of sun burn but ended up loving it as a moisturizer. It absorbs nicely on my face without leaving my face oily and soothes my red and dry areas. I'm obsessed. My face has been so soft and has had a dramatic decrease in redness.

The perfume smell is so over powering, that I had to wash it off after 15 minutes. I tried to give it to my sister but she said it smelled like stinky men's cologne. I ended up throwing it away.

The gel is 99% aloe and it soothes after sun skin very effectively without any stinging.

Had a really bad sunburn that I got in Florida. I could barely bend where the burn was. My skin felt tight and hot to the touch. Used this once and the next morning the heat was gone from the burn. Used it the next night and the skin is moisturized and I can finally move around without any tightness. Best part is no peeling or blistering. Keep it in the fridge for the best cooling effect!

I could never find a face moisturizer that didn't make me break out. I've tried them all. Expensive to cheap. I tried this and all my acne went down SO much. My redness went down. It's not super moisturizing but I don't like being too moisturized. So I love it. I'm going to keep buying it.

As far as aloe products go, this is going to be the best you can get next to a legit aloe leaf. Most aloes are "soothing gels WITH aloe" (tricky wording) and this being mostly aloe is a big plus. Definitely a staple everyone needs. I have used this for burns, body lotion, face moisturizer, after care for laser treatments or peels, and medium for tanning drops. I do wish there was a fragrance free option.

oily/combo skin here, this is the first moisturizer ive used that didn't make my skin more oily or cause a break out! i use it morning and night after washing my face, its been perfect for moisturizing and also anytime my skin feels irritated(like after shaving or plucking hair). My skin is already becoming smoother and the redness is getting less noticeable. Im never using another moisturizer!
Zerin from New York
This product contains unnecessary fragrance which is extremely irritating to the skin of color.
Daf from Nevada
This product came in cracked on the top so whenever it gets squeezed, the product comes out of the crack. This also made a small mess inside the shipping box, it splattered all over my other products I bought. I got this as a gift for my bf and he absolutely loved it!

Enjoy it, from smell to container style.

This aloe gel is so close to the real thing. It really helped my skin tonight after I applied a new moisturizer that had 2% salicylic acid in it. I did patch test on my wrist the night before. Oh well. My face was starting to tingle, getting really warm and it was itchy. Same with my neck. Cleansed it all off and used this gel. Right away the heat was leaving, then the itchiness started leaving. I should buy a few to keep in back stock.

I apply this product to my face, neck, and chest after my cleansing routine. I love the clean smell of it and how it feels on my skin. I will definitely buy more.
Elvia from TX
So I do alot of diy skincare and I use only the best ingredients and this aloe vera is definitely high quality, it's clean, suitable for all skin types and it does the job well and then some.. It doesn't leave a film like most I've tried, it smells great and it lasts a very long time. Packaging is cute and this is my forever go-to.
Kale from VA
As much as I prefer raw aloe it just isn't practical for daily use. This is the closest thing I can find! Has the same sticky texture and still helps me fade dark spots and moisturize. I use it under my regular lotion morning and night!
EdP from TX
I use this product after I wash my face and before sunscreen and make up. This stuff is great! I use it everyday as a natural moisturizer since I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and have absolutely no complaints.
I used it once for a minor facial sunburn and the next day it was all cleared up.

This product actually works for almost any issue you have. One of by far the best aloe products out there without harsh chemicals. I use this day and night with my skin care routine and one I wont leave without it. Note you can use a thicker moisturizer after this has set for a more moisturizing look. This aloe gel feels like a serum rather than a lotion. Hope this helps great product!!
