Thumbs down I think Aloe Vera gel messed up my skin's natural balance

I was using 100% pure Aloe Vera Gel to try to get rid of my blackheads and it did help them, but after a month and a half it dried out my skin (which is oily) and I think it threw my skin's balance off. With all the vitamins it contains I thought it would be moisturizing and nourishing, but I'm not so sure if it's truly good for the face now. I stopped using it. Did anyone else have problems with it?

Yes it can dry your skin up and even cause flaking. Careful not to overdo it.
