Why hello my lovelies and how is today finding you? I hope you are well and as all ways hope your ready to read!
Today I am talking about Forever Living. Yes those Aloe products that have been bombarding your Facebook feed! On a serious note though this product was founded in 1978 Arizona and has then continued to flourish into billion dollar empire, so it is well established. So what’s all the fuss I hear you ask? This is where you find out the list of reasons become endless from treating inflamed skin (SPOTS people!) to a wide range of medical reasons. If you like to know more check out WebMd. The reason aloe is so good is because it has bio-active compounds (some thing that has an effect on a living organism), including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. It also has anti bacterial properties.
So with all that sorted lets crack on with the products them selves! I was given a lovely little sample ,by one of my local reps Rebecca to try but I’ve decided to review 3 here for you. Over all there was TEN different samples to try (lucky me)
The first one I tried was the Hand and Face Soap. THIS PRODUCT! I’m going to say straight away that this is my favourite. The bottle to start is a pump pot so always easy to use which I like, never can stand to much faffing. The smell was subtle but smelt clean and fresh and the gel foamed really nicely. Plus I washed my hands and then my face so it was left really clean and fresh. It really was so silky and after my usual moister routine felt AMAZING! Plus this is a family friendly product so it can be used on every one. One last thing I’m not sure anyone is aware of yet is how amazing it is for washing make up brushes! I just used a small amount in some warm water, massaged well with my thumbs, rinsed in clean water and left to dry, BOOM perfect clean brushes and works on sponges to. This product really is amazing.
The second product I tried was the face scrub and again this product was really good. I liked how it felt on as it was thick. Not in a heavy way but it covered every bit of my face really nicely. Plus the micro beads in it were really small making sure none of my face was missed. I am prone to flaking skin around my eyebrows and it cleared that really well. The smell was a really delicate cucumbery smell that was like a real spa product! I really did enjoy this product and it left my skin soft and fresh.
The last product I tried was the Marine Mask (I love facemasks!!!) and this mask was really easy and fuss free to apply. It was a thick gel with a natural and again subtle smell but felt nice on. It dried to a clear colour and only took about 15 mins to dry fully. Washing it off was easy and once I had my skin was really oil free which is a real bonus for all of us T-zoners (insert sad emoticon). I really did like this product and would be great for when my skin is having an oily outbreak.
Overall I think the amount of publicity this product has had on most of our Facebook’s feeds has, perhaps, made people dismiss it as ‘another fad’ but I have to say this is not the case. I actually tried some of the products when they were first introduced in the UK and can say that their moisterisers are not for me. Not because they’re bad but because they hydrate to much and as I said I’m prone to oily skin. The washes and face products seem fab. I would suggest you at least try them.
Any way my lovelies, thank you for joining me for another blog, I hope you enjoyed it. I’m so glad you did and be on your merry way with new aloe knowledge and if you’re looking for more check out Authoritynutrition.
