Healthcare company Trust William sent us some Aloe Pura Organic Aloe Vera Gel for testing and I’ll say straight off, we’re very impressed.
I say ‘we’ as my girlfriend has been hogging it as she likes it so much. More of that later. The gel is 99.9% ‘bio active’ aloe vera gel, which means it contains some other bits and bobs, and is labelled organic although it’s not certified as such. It is certified by the International Aloe Science Council for its ‘aloe content and purity’ though – if that means anything to you.
If you’re wondering what you actually do with the gel, well the simple answer is that it’s for the skin. But that means you can use it as a moisturiser, for scars, stretch marks, sun burn and minor burns. If you’ve ever used an aloe plant to soothe your skin, it does the same thing. My girlfriend particularly likes using it on her newly shaved legs to cool them down and soothe them.
Although unscented, it has the famous aloe smell and feels like it’s going to be sticky but after light massaging it soaks into the skin nicely. As summer is coming around we’ll be using it after being out in the sun to moisturise the skin.
It really is a useful product to have around and can be used on a daily basis or sparingly when the need arises. I’m going to be trying it on my ankle scar after an operation to see if it lessens the redness and itching and will update this review as I do.
Trust William also sell different types of the gel – with added tea tree oil and a antioxidant and vitamin version so it’s worth checking out which you prefer. In the range there’s also shampoos and sun lotions as well.
Aloe Pura Organic Aloe Vera Gel costs £2.99 for 100ml (£4.99 for 200ml) from Trust William.
