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:

"It moisturizes my situation... preserves my sexy."
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.

Thanks girls! I'm gonna purchase this and mix it with some other ingredients.
"It moisturizes my situation... preserves my sexy."
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.
i know people who drink this stuff. This helps the immune system. i've never tried it on my hair though.
Hair Type: 4a with 3c sections...frizzy,wavy,bushy,curly
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.
well i haven't tried it in my hair yet but it's yummy in my smoothies

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!

Wash routine: CO with Suave or VO5
C with Jessicurl Too Shea! or Elucence
leave in C/aloe/falx seed gel/jojoba
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.
Coily, springy, major shrinkage!

8 oz filtered water
1 of each teabag

*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 :|
