Tate's review
"I suffered acne at the age of 19. I must have spent thousands of pesos on acne treatment products but all to no avail. Until one of my Mom's friends recommended Forever Living Drinking Gel. After a few weeks, I noticed that the pimples seems lesser. So, I continued using it until my skin got cleared from acne. Now, Im 36 years old and I'm married and I'm a Mom and my hubby always tells me how beautiful my skin is. "

Kerri's review
"I used the gel on my skin (face) after washing daily. I also drank about 2oz. each day. This was to clear acne. Seemed to help."

Kerri's recommendations
"I was told by a local dermatologist to discontinue this treatment that it would "thin my skin." I was also told that drinking it could be dangerous. I did and now my face looks terrible.

jenny said:

jenny's recommendations
"Allergic reactions to aloe is not commonly known. If you know you are allergic be sure to read ingredients for anything you may ingest or rub on your skin."

jenny's comments on side effects
"broke out in itchy, burning rash with small blisters within a day. The 'normal' skin rash listed on your site seems to be from taking AV internally. Obviously I did not ingest aloe, but rubbed fresh gel onto my skin. OUCH! (this is the first time I've had this bad reaction)"

margaret's review
"my face had acne and it was really bad. when driving I used to close my window ashamed of my face.I met a distributor, who introduced me to aloe products. First I did flush out with aloe gel and then washed my face with aloe liquid soap.after this I would apply aloe jelly before applying propolis creme. The pain has gone and I dont have break outs in my face any more. With confidence I tell many about the goodness of aloe vera products. Am now a distributor. "

Anne's review
"Forever living propolis cream has changed my life! I discovered this about 5 months ago when after years of suffering from break outs on my face I thought lets give this a try. I was amazed, within a few days my skin had improved dramatically. My spots cleared up without leaving the scarring they usually did. My skin looked smoother and in glowing. I am 38 years old and suffered from spots when I hit my mid twenties, they would come and take ages to go down. Now I only get the occasional one spot here and there and it goes so much quicker. For the first time since my teens I no longer have to wear foundation and this is a big change for me!! I only wore the stuff because my skin tone was uneven and spotty (which of course the foundation would make worse). Now I feel my skin can breathe, is fresh and has a lovely colour again. This is a miracle to me!! "

Anne's recommendations
"My recommendation to anyone who suffers from spots and has a dull skin complexion to buy this cream now!"

Susan said:

Susan's review
"I tried everything. I have had this acne type of rash on my chest for about 3 weeks. Initially I thought it was from chlorinated pools since I work out 3 times a week in a public swimming pool. I don't usually have acne so this was strange. At first I tried cleansing with acne pads which stung quite a bit, then followed with Noxema. Did not work, then tried cleansing with pads and Vitamin D cream which worked a little bit. Then tried Jafra night cream which worked somewhat, then Royal Jelly which made it worse. Then last night I tried Aloe Vera directly from my Aloe Vera plant and it was the most soothing relief I have had so far. Went to bed after it dried and the spots have cleared up 50%. So this morning I applied some more and has improved another 25%. The acne rash is almost gone and it hasn't even been 24 hours since I first applied it."

Susan's recommendations
"If you have strange rash or burn, use gel directly from the leaf. Its a miracle how quickly it heals and how soothing it is to your skin."

Jennifer Gray said:

Jennifer Gray's review
"I get sores from my acne that don't heal well. I had one on my cheek. I got a sunburn and applied Aloe on my face. The next morning there was significant healing that had happened with the sore. So, I started using Aloe Gel on my face, but I didn't like the stiffness or the film that would be left on my face. I got some aloe juice and put it in a spray bottle and misted my face 2 or 3 times a day. Swelling and redness and healing time improved. The juice doesn't leave a film."

Jennifer Gray's recommendations
"It sounds crazy but it really works, and it is refreshing on a hot day."

  • claimed it was beneficial, Within the week.

Chiedza Chinyezhu said:

Chiedza Chinyezhu's review
"For more than 7 years l had suffered with pimples, scars and ance on my face. Someone told me how the Aloe Vera works miraculousely if you mix a few drops of its juice with water. I did that and it helped by cleansing my blood, killing the bacteria that causes pimples and ance from the inside.After one week l began to apply the fresh gel from the leaf directly on to my face, it sucked out all the ance and dried out all the pimples. "

Chiedza Chinyezhu's recommendations
"If you are also suffering from pimples, ance and scars take a 7 day challenge by applying the fresh gel from the leaf and see how the ance is sucked out of the skin living the skin, bacteria free, ance free and pimple free.It also works as an anti-aging as it smooths and removes rinkles off your face."

  • claimed it was beneficial, Several weeks.
  • said there were no side effects

Andrew said:

Andrew's review
"I am an 18 year-old who has suffered with acne for the past 3 years. It has been so bad that I resorted to being prescribed courses of antibiotics to be taken throughout the winter. Although this did clear the acne up I wasn't allowed to take the tablets in the summer because of an adverse reaction with sunlight and by the following winter they were back with a vengeance.

This winter my mother joined FLP and started me on Bee Propolis and Garlic Thyme tablets as well as Forever Freedom because I had a long-standing knee injury. To begin with I was very skeptical and keen to go back on the antibiotics, but my mother made me promise to give the tablets a real chance. I can honestly say that over the last two months I have noticed a big difference and I do not need to be persuaded to continue with the tablets.

Also, I am having physiotherapy for my knee injury and the Forever Freedom does seem to be speeding my recovery

L. Rees said:

L. Rees's review
"I lived with acne all my life and had given up hope of finding a solution. I'd tried numerous high street products and been prescribed all the common acne drug treatments. None of them made any appreciable difference and in the case of several of the pharmaceutical products, I suffered quite severe side effects. However, within just a couple of weeks of drinking Aloe Vera Gel and using Aloe Propolis Crème as a moisturiser on a daily basis, my skin began to recover and I've experienced a 90% improvement within a couple of months. "

L. Rees's recommendations
"It's nothing short of a minor miracle and I'd recommend that anyone with skins problems of any kind give these products a try."
