    Cool, don't be afraid to load it on to the point where it doesn't even dry before you go to bed. This will insure you get the peeling effect. Anyways, let us know how you like it.

    I think that's certainly the case, you didn't load enough on. Like seriously put handfuls of the stuff on, it gets expensive for the bottles, like I've already gone through almost two in just over a week. However, money isn't an option for me, I'd use 10 a day if I had to lol. I just want my damn acne gone. Try really loading it on and letting it dry as much as possible before you go to sleep and then let us know how it works for ya.

    Although very hard to notice I found that Lily of the Desert was a little more liquidy then pure Fruit of the Earth Aloe. I did use Lily for a couple days to experiment and didn't like it nearly as much as Fruit of the Earth, however, it was still 10x better than nothing.

    You really gotta hunt for Fruit of the Eart sometimes.

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    If you look at post #74 in this thread I said how I was experimenting with using Aloe 24/7. I had it on all last night and all day yesterday and night and all last night. Now I can honestly say it was weird, my skin would burn a lot with it on last night. I think I would stick to just putting it on at night and peeling it off in the morning (don't wash it off). I haven't noticed any problem with my skin after peeling it off this morning, but better safe then sorry and like they say, too much of anything is never a good thing.

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    I tried the lily of desert aloe vera, but I don't think I put enough because their wasn't any peeling, and I had to rub it off my face. Do you think stores like Walmart, K-mart etc sell aloe vera? Thanks!!!

    I'm sure walmart and/or k-mart would sell it. Aloe, to be honest with you I don't think I got near the peeling effect with Lily of the Desert that I did with Fruit of the Earth. However, still put as much as you can on, even 3 hours or so before you go to bed. As long before you go to bed as possible

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    I put a lot more aloe vera on my face today and it peeled, but it was hard to do it. Most of the aloe vera got on my blanket on accident. I'm going to Walmart today so I'll pick some up thanks!!!!

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    Yeah...i've been using Aloe Vera (97.5% variety) for the past few days and it seems pretty good...i don't have access to fruit of the earth, but that might be even better. Anyhow, it seems to be very good in healing quickly...now zits really go away like in 1 day. Also on the purity thing, I think they make the aloe vera gels from concentrate...so like juice, you can have 100 percent juice from a little of concentrate...and then add a bit of stuff to it and still be 100 percent...

    It certainly dries them up overnight. I wouldnt go as far as saying completely getting rid of them in 1 day. However, anything that claims to do that simply isn't true, there is always gonna be a bit left unless it's a really small surface pimple.

    I'm still using aloe everynight and still love it!
