Pros: Natural, many uses.
Cons: A little sticky at first.
I recently had a mishap with my big toe. I dropped my computer hard-drive on it (dont ask, please) and my toe nail fell off after a couple of weeks, yuck! I was mortified as by now, I am sure you know I have a thing about pretty hands and feet. It looked horrible next to my other pretty pink toe nails. The skin is very tender and vulnerable underneath and it takes a long time to heal, much to my dismay. Anyway, a friend of mine suggested Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera 100% Gel as a healer and protectant for this tender region.

When my toe nail first came off, the skin underneath was very sore and tender. Of course it would be, being protected by a nail for so many years. The hard drive had done its damage and left a small wound. I have been applying Fruit of the Earth 100% Aloe Vera Gel now for three weeks. Its healing capacities are phenomenal. The wound has cleared up and the tender skin around it has smoothed out. This product is cool and soothing with no burning effect to the wound and also protect this vulnerable skin from the sun. It takes a while to dry but is worth the wait. Now all I need is for my nail to grow back. Until then, I guess open-toed shoes are out.
Apart from being a good remedy for acne and blemish problems, this product is also a healer and a protectant. It has multi-uses as you can see and can only be an asset as an addition to your beauty and/or medicinal products. I have used it on minor blemishes before and it has been effective as a healer there too.
For the price, its natural qualities and its effectiveness,Fruit of the Earth 100% Aloe Vera Gel is a must-have.
