Default Aloe Vera Juice

Anyone use this instead of the gel? Do you mix it with anything, or use it alone? This one is from lilly of the desert:

I usually mix mine with Shea and mango butter with grapefruit essential oil. Then I blend with a stick blender. This is my HG.

I use aloe juice, not in place of aloe gel, but as a part of my moisture spritz, facial toner, etc. I love aloe juice.

I intend on mixing some tomorrow with my Suave humectant and some honey for a DT. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Oh, I've ALWAYS wanted to try this, but have been afraid to. Are the ingredients ok to use on hair or is it just 100% aloe juice?

It's 100% aloe vera juice, the edible kind. I buy the Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice from VitaminShoppe for mixing into my hair spritzes.

I like Fruit of the Earth gel better. It is still 100% aloe, but gives better hold. Super nourishing for the hair! Just look and see how many products list aloe in their ingredients!

I use this in my facial toner, works great! I tried it in some recipes for my hair but it didn't work out the way i would have liked.

I just started using this toner recipe that I made up:

8 oz filtered water
1 of each teabag
*green tea
*green tea w/antioxidants (yogi tea)
*honeybush tea
*chamomile tea

Boil these together and steep to make heavy tea. Take cup of this tea and place in a clean bottle. Then add cup witch hazel and cup aloe vera juice. Keep in fridge.

Or if you just want to test it use 1/4 cup of tea & 1/8 cup of witch hazel % 1/8 cup aloe vera juice.

After you've washed you face blot it on and let it dry naturally. I've been using this for a couple of weeks and I can tell the difference when I don't use it.

thanks a lot TroDous! i'll have to try it out sometime. so what differences do you notice when you do/don't use it? this really sounds like something great to do since i've never used a toner before. i hope it helps my face look and feel smooth/clear, that would be nice!

I have this exact product. Aloe vera seems to do nothing for my hair except make it hard and frizzy. I tried it for a twist-out on dry hair.

amarilla505, girl when I don't use this product all my little lines come out (between the eyes, those smile lines and I'm starting to get a couple under the eyes). This toner makes my face look less tired and I see the difference. I look like instead of looking like :|
