We all know, that when the seasons start to change and the colder autumn months roll in, your beauty regime needs a bit of an extra helping hand!
Luckily for me, I was approached recently by the lovely Fiona, and offered the opportunity to try out the Forever Living range of Aloe Vera products.
Her email couldn’t have come at a better time for me, as I really do suffer with uber thirsty skin when the autumn chill arrives, which is only amplified more when living on an island surrounded by stormy autumn seas!
Forever Living and their affiliates were established back in 1978 and have been growing at a rapid rate ever since. They are the largest grower, manufacturer and distributor of Aloe and Bee products in the world.
They are truly focused on the quality of the products they deliver and the basis of all the range is 100% inner oil, which they then add small quantities of other ingredients to, in order to deliver the final perfect product.
Now, when I say I was offered the chance to try out the ‘range’, I mean just that! The Aloe Vera products available are amazing, I had no idea you could do so much with it!
I’m sure you have all heard about the healing properties of Aloe Vera, but here are just a few of the benefits you can enjoy from it;
- Aloe Vera contains bioactive compounds that can improve health
- It has potent antioxidant and antibacterial properties
- Aloe Vera accelerates the healing of burns
- Aloe Vera juice reduces dental plaque as effectively as mouthwash
- Aloe Vera may improve skin elasticity and help prevent wrinkles
Basically, this stuff is good for you, and you should get stuck in to treating yourself!
After digging through the box of goodies, I tried out the Aloe Tea and one of the Aloe Juice pouches. I have to say, both of them are definitely an acquired taste; however, I am assured that the benefits of Aloe Juice are certainly worth the commitment.
After trying out the obvious ‘healthy options’, I moved on to the cleansing and beauty products. The hand and face soap is great for a quick freshen up throughout the day and you can finish off with the hand sanitiser too.
I much prefer BB cream to foundation, so this really suited me, especially knowing it had the added skincare benefits of Aloe Vera in it, I felt like I was treating my skin at the same time as improving the outward appearance.
The ultimate essential for the colder days, is a great moisturiser, this range has something to suit everyone. There’s the standard moisturiser you would expect, or you can chose the slicker gel moisturiser. There’s also a slightly more intense moisturiser, which is great for healing problem areas and clearing up blemishes.
For those of you who are more sporty than me (likely to be 100% of you!), there’s also a deep heat rub to soothe aches and pains, without the usual intense smell you can get with the more well known heat rubs on the market.
For a zesty wake up in the morning, the Aloe & Jojoba shampoo and conditioner get you off to a great start. I know some people sometimes just use shampoo, but I would definitely say you have to use the conditioner with this set.
The shampoo almost feels like it strips back a layer of your hair, revealing whole new, fresh strands underneath. Of course, this means you need to add moisture back into your hair, so lather up with the conditioner and you will instantly feel the difference. This duo gives your hair a fantastic deep clean, but leaves it shiny and doesn’t weigh it down once dry, a great combination!
Last, but DEFINITELY not least, was my absolutely favourite Aloe product. I was hooked on this from the second I first used it.
The Aloe Nourishing Serum is going to be my life saving product throughout the winter months. It instantly smooths out the skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth all day. I started the week with quite dry and course skin from the harsh weather, but after just 3 days of using the serum, my skin had a fresh new glow and felt plenty moisturised.
Finish this off with the Aloe Balancing Cream morning and night, and you can be sure of weather proofed skin to see you right through until the Spring returns!
