It's been such a long time since I did a skin care item review, but here it goes... About 1 month ago I received the Made from Earth Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment to review. At the beginning I was wondering why in the world they would send something to heal the skin from sun expose when , oh well, in Finland it was the beginning of winter. I e-mail the company and asked about it and they replied quickly telling me that this product is also an excellent moisturizing. Hearing this I decided to give it a try, considering that I start to have a lot of dry patches when it's cold outside.
I was curious to try products from Made from Earth as I try to go as natural as I can with my skin care.
Here it is the official description of the Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment from Made from Earh website:
"100% pure and organic aloe vera for cooling and deep moisturizing.
This Aloe Vera Skin Treatment should be used for healing the skin from the effects of daily sun exposure. It is the most potent and natural form of aloe vera you can buy in a jar. Deeply moisturizes skin, while the aloe releases enzymes and natural vitamins into your skin. Treatment is recommended for use two to three times per week.
Made from Earth recommends keeping both aloe products in the refrigerator for a ‘cooling’ effect on the skin, as well as increasing the shelf life of the product.
Apply small amount to treatment area. Massage into skin. For the best results, add a second application once the aloe treatment is fully absorbed by the skin. This treatment is also pH balanced for face & body applications.

Now, here it comes my review...
Packaging, price, quantity: 2 oz. of product (I think that is 60 grams) come in a plastic jar for almost 15$ (now it is discounted at 10$). I personally don't like jar as I don't think they are hygienic, but oh well...
Texture: it is not like a gel or cream but it is also not liquid, it is something in between. Personally I like the texture and a little bit of this goes long way.
What it did for me: as I already said, at the beginning I had my doubts, but now those went away. I've been using this for the last month approximately 2-3 times per week and I really like it. I use it at night because it need some time to get absorbed into the skin, so I wouldn't recommend wearing this under makeup. Though my skin is quite oily, my favorite face mask at the moment (Queen Helen Mint Julep Mask) can dry my skin in some days so I just apply the Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment after and problem solved! Also because it got colder, I started to have dry patches around my month and on my cheeks, but this gets rid of them almost over night! This treatment it's not just moisturizing, but it helps calming down redness on my face,it is not clogging my pores and I have a suspicion that it helps healing my spots faster.
Overall: I love this product for colder season. I can't tell to much about skin healing after sun exposure because it is winter here. I would buy this product just because is moisturizing my skin nicely and it is not clogging my pores (this is a big plus for me as I am prone to clogged pores). I would rate this product 9/10 just because of the jar packaging.
