Best Aloe Vera Gel Reviews

Something that has been lesser known for years but is now becoming more and more common is using aloe vera gel as a treatment.

While it also has other uses, aloe vera gel has been known to do a good job in treating cuts and bruises much more effectively than other kinds of gels.

However, there are a few things that you should be aware of when using aloe vera gel. They contain substances that can produce some particularly nasty side effects if too many of these substances are present.

Not all aloe vera gels are the same, and you’ll want to know what to expect in your aloe vera gel before buying any. You need to be very aware of what kinds of substances are used to preserve the aloe vera gel and how much of it is being used, among other things.

 

5 Aloe Vera Gel Reviews

8 oz aloe vera gel from cold pressed aloe by Amara Beauty

 

Among the uses of aloe vera gel are using it as a moisturizer for skin and even hair. It is difficult for most other aloe vera gels to accomplish this, as they simply contain just enough natural aloe vera to treat cuts and bruises, but not enough to function as a moisturizer.

Because Amara Beauty’s aloe vera gel is made from 99.75% pure aloe vera, it can indeed act as a moisturizer as well as acting as its other functions. This makes it very effective if you are looking for something that does not contain as many chemicals as traditional moisturizers.

Only 8 ounces of gel are in the bottle, so if you do want to use Amara Beauty’s aloe vera gel for many purposes, you’ll need to stock up a bit as you will run out pretty fast.

Also, if you are even slightly allergic to aloe vera, you’ll want to look for something else that does not have as much pure aloe vera in it. 

The fact that Amara Beauty’s aloe vera bottle contains 99.75% pure aloe vera means that although it is very effective, it can also be risky to use. If you apply too much of this particular gel, you could experience nasty side effects.

12 oz 99.75% aloe vera gel by Earth’s Daughter

It can be difficult to find aloe vera gel with 99.75% pure aloe vera that contains a lot of gel. Earth’s Dautgher’s aloe vera gel comes in a 12 ounce bottle, which is nearly twice as much as the common 99.75% aloe vera gel bottles.

Something else that is nice about Earth’s Daughter’s aloe vera gel is that it is not as thick as the common aloe vera gel. This helps quite a bit with controlling how much of it you apply. If you are the type who applies too much aloe vera gel at times, you’ll get a lot out of Earth’s Daughter’s aloe vera gel.

Another thing that helps you control how much of the gel you apply is how the gel is dispensed. Earth’s Daughter’s gel comes in a bottle that has a spray type mechanism, and this can really help you control how much of it you apply.

Earth’s Daughter’s aloe vera gel uses citric acid as a preservative. Although not much of this citric acid is used in the gel, enough of it is used to present a risk if anybody is allergic to citric acid. If you are allergic to citric acid, you’ll want to look elsewhere.

12 oz rapidly absorbing aloe vera gel by Seven Minerals

It can take quite a long time for most aloe vera gel to be fully absorbed into wherever it gets applied. This can be troublesome, especially if you do not have the time to let said aloe vera gel absorb into what it is applied to properly.

Being free of the xanthan that preserves the aloe vera gel, it takes a much shorter time for Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel to be absorbed into what it gets applied to. This is very useful if you want to it for treating cuts and wounds.

Some aloe vera gels are not made of a liquid, but rather a thick form of powder. Applying this can be difficult and it can also be messy. Being made of a pure liquid, Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel is much easier to apply than aloe vera gels that are not completely made of real juice.

However, the powder like material and xanthan increases the shelf life of most aloe vera gels. With Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel, you do not get this luxury. Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel does not last a long time, and if you are looking for aloe vera gel that will last a long time, you’re going to need to look elsewhere.

12 oz aloe vera gel from freshly cut aloe plant by Seven Minerals

A very large majority of aloe vera gels could stand to be a little stronger, especially when using it to treat a rash. Oftentimes, you’ll need to apply aloe vera multiple times if you want to treat a rash with it if not dozens of times.

Because it is made from freshly cut aloe leaves, Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel makes it much more powerful than the common aloe vera gel. If you use it to treat a cut or a bruise, it will be cleared within hours. If you use it to treat a rash, you’ll need to use it at most three times. It is that powerful.

Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel also comes in a 12 ounce bottle. This means that you have plenty of it available to use. A lot of aloe vera gel bottles are 8 or 10 ounces. You will not need to worry about running out of Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel.

The one problem with Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel is that it is too powerful to be kept for long periods of time. This is because it is made directly from aloe vera leaves. Most other aloe vera gels may not be as powerful as Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel, but they also have a good amount of shelf life. This is not the case with Seven Minerals’ aloe vera gel.

4 oz Pure hydrating aloe vera gel by Aloderma

Nearly all aloe vera gels will soothe the cut, bruise, or rash that you apply it to. They do this over time and will often require a lot of applications to even treat a small cut. Even aloe vera gels that are made directly from aloe vera leaves are often not powerful enough to treat cuts, bruises, or rashes right away. If they are very powerful, they are usually very painful when applied.

None of this is an issue at all when it comes to aloderma’s aloe vera gel. Because it hydrates skin when it is applied, it not only treats the cut/bruise/rash, but it will hydrate the affected area, making it much less painful when applied. The burning sensation that often accompanies aloe vera gel applications is not as pronounced when using aloderma’s aloe vera gel.

Not many aloe vera gels can double as a sunscreen, but it is possible to use aloederma’s aloe vera gel as a sunscreen as well as a method of treatment. The hydrating qualities of the gel is what makes this possible.

If you want to use aloederma’s aloe vera gel for many things, you will need to stock up. Only 4 ounces come in the bottle, so the chances of running out are very good, especially if you are using aloderma’s aloe vera gel as a treatment and as a sunscreen. It is powerful enough, but unfortunately, there is not a lot of it to go around.

Conclusion

Aloe vera gel is probably the best thing you can use to treat cuts, bruises, sores, or even rashes.

It is easy to use and unlike most other treatment gels, it does not contain chemicals that can be potentially harmful.

Remember that not all aloe vera gels are the same. While most are made from natural ingredients, some last longer than others.

This is because of two things: First, the capacity of the aloe vera gel bottle will dictate directly how much aloe vera gel can be used.

Second, the ingredients of the aloe vera gel bottle will give you information about how strong the gel is. Typically, the strength of the gel will also dictate what kind of shelf life the gel has.

In either case, aloe vera gel is very effective for minor skin irritations. Consider using it instead of other kinds of applicants if you need something that can treat a cut, bruise, or rash.
