We all know aloe vera for the wonderful cooling sensation it leaves on your sunburnt skin, but I swear this substance is more magical than you think.
Here are 5 reasons you need to spend $2.99:
- Even if you don’t have a sunburn it’s still an amazing moisturizer. Aloe Vera is not greasy at all, so no reason to fear oily-skin sufferers. I use it on my face almost every night!
- It’s a great aftershave.
- It can prevent & heal acne! H-ALOE-LUJAH! It has many antibacterial properties that reduce redness & itching. It can unclog the pores and kill bacteria! Sounds pretty sweet to me.
- It can prevent wrinkles!!
- It’s the perfect excuse to go to Trader Joes… aka the best place ever.
My sister bought the Trader Joe’s brand aloe vera gel after getting a really bad sunburn during a vacation in California last summer. Due to my empty wallet hashtag college life, I tried it as acne cream one night (after reading about its many uses online) & the next morning I woke up to a clear face! It was honestly a miracle. You all deserve that same miracle.
