Does Aloe Vera clog your pores??

Ok, here's the deal... my skin is really sensitive, I get the occasional pimple, and I have tons of whiteheads on my forehead, cheeks and chin (I also have blackheads on my nose). If I'm not careful w/ what products I chose... I can easily break out. I really really need to start an all-natural regimen ... and I was wondering, if I applied aloe vera all over my face at night after washing my face... would it clog my pores???Thankyou for your help!

My skin is very sensitive and when I applied pure aloe vera gel from an actual aloe leaf, I got red, itchy, and hives. So test it out in a small area.

It didn't clog my pores. But make sure you get the 100% pure type.

No, I dont think you should worry about it clogging your pores...If you get the pure aloe vera gel, it will most likely help your skin and not make it worse at all

YES! At least for me. It's too thick.

Oh yeah! People say to get 100% aloe vera, and I have the Desert Lily, which is NOT 100& aloe, but its 100% organic and only like 3 percent is not Aloe. Will this break me out or clog my pores?
