    Well basically I load on as much as I can, like literally handfuls of the stuff all over my face. Now I don't even let it dry before I go to bed and even apply another coat before I go to bed and try not to smudge it too much.

    If this still isn't working for you I guess it could be the brand your using. I know for a fact if you do this and use Fruit of the Earth 100% Aloe Vera Gel, you will get the peeling effect.

    Let me know how this works or if you have anymore questions.

    I know it really works wonders, I had two huge ones too and both looking much better already. I can't give Aloe enough praise.

    No problem at all, just woke up this morning against and as usual face feels great. I have 1 new very small pimp above my lip but with the aloe it'll hopefully be gone soon. the rest of my face like all around my chips and stuff is feeling soft, but not greasy or anything really, just kinda normal. I'm sure a lot of this is my body finally adjusting to the 120 mg of accutane I'm on, but the aloe is really helping with the spreading.

    Keep me updated Star

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    No - just store it in the fridge. I think accutanedude also mentioned that he is one 120 mg of accutane, so his positive experience with aloe vera may not be entirely representative. I happen to agree with him that it is a great product for skin inflammation and local irritations, but it is not going to clear your skin by itself. It will very likely alleviate much of the redness you may be suffering from, but you will probably have best results by using it in conjunction with other topicals. Good luck.

    I completely agree with this. Aloe is not something to halt your treatments for, it's just something to add to the routine before you go to bed.

    In a way this is what makes it so great, you don't have to make any changes to your cycle, just a nice addition

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    I just wanted to give you guys a small opinion I have. I think brand really matters quite a bit. When I used Lilly of Desert which was 99.5% aloe for 2 days, it was certainly better of than nothing, but I did get a few new zits and it just overall seemed less effective will less peeling in the morning etc. Now that I'm back to 100% Pure Fruit of the Earth everything is cool again.

    Another thing i am experimenting with is keep the aloe on almost 24/7. So far I don't know if I like it, i've had it all on day and it kinda feels like my face is burning which could be a good thing or bad thing. I'll let you know in the morning what I think about keeping aloe on as much as possible.
