Must Have Aloe Vera Beauty Products

Must-have aloe vera beauty products via @agirlsgottaspa

Aloe vera has long been known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Anyone who has had a sunburn knows that aloe vera is a must-have beauty staple.

I’ve begun to notice that lately aloe vera is in everything from beauty products to juices and supplements – I’ve even seen it frozen in ice cube trays, which makes complete sense since the benefits of aloe vera seem never-ending.

Some of the many advantages to incorporating aloe into your beauty routine are:

  • When taken in a supplement or drink, it helps to support a healthy digestive system, a healthy immune system and normal muscle and joint functions
  • It reduces toxins in the body, aids in digestion and has an alkalizing effect on the body
  • It is high in amino and fatty acids as well as vitamins and minerals
  • It’ss great for applying topically to burns, abrasions, psoriasis, bug bites and sunburnt skin
  • Since aloe is has a high water content, it is a great way to hydrate, moisturize and rejuvenate skin
  • Aloe increases skin elasticity by making it more flexible through collagen and elastin repair
  • Aloe is also an emollient, helping to soften and soothe the skin
  • It helps supply oxygen to the skin cells, increasing the strength and synthesis of skin tissue and induces improved blood flow to the skin

With all of these amazing benefits, it’s no wonder we’re finding it in more skin care products.

Below are some of my favorite aloe vera beauty products:

1. Sustainable Youth Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion, Elasticity Cream & Revitalizing Serum: These products are amazing when used together or on their own.  They all contain alasta, which is the most potent immunostimulatory ingredient derived from Aloe.  The Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion is extremely luxurious.  It thoroughly cleanses my skin, but leaves it feeling soft and moisturized and not stripped like a lot of facial cleansers.  It also has a beautiful calming, but fresh scent that I absolutely cannot get enough of.  The Firming & Revitalizing Serum is a really lightweight serum that is immediately absorbed into my skin leaving it baby soft, smooth and glowing.  The Elasticity Cream is also fast absorbing and lightweight, but leaves my skin hydrated, refreshed, soothed and feeling firmer.

2. Farmaesthetics Cool Aloe Mist This cooling, hydrating mist offers immediate relief to inflamed skin. It’s also a great makeup setting spray, an amazing refreshing facial and body toner and a purifying mist for skin.

3. Alothera Moisturizing Shampoo and Keratin Conditioner In addition to smelling amazing, these products together leave my hair soft, shiny and silky.  The conditioner works like a deep conditioning treatment on my hair.  I left it in my hair for just 2 minutes and I could feel the improvement in my hair immediately.

4. Biorepublic Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Sheet Mask This eco-conscious sheet mask is very soothing, hydrating and easy to use.   I can see and feel the difference in my skin right away.  I would highly recommend using this mask after a day at the beach, after a long flight or anytime your skin fees dry and irritated.

5. 365 Everyday Value Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice On its own this juice is a bit tough for me to swallow, but I love adding it to my favorite healthy juices and smoothies, after all beauty does literally begin from the inside out! This juice is available at Whole Foods.

6. A Girl’s Gotta Spa! Energizing Citrus Body Wash: I’d be remiss if I left out this amazing natural and organic body wash. With aloe as the main ingredient, this body wash soothes and hydrates skin as it cleanses. The mix of citrus essential oils creates an invigorating shower experience.

7. InviCible Scars: Scars need to be mositurized in order to heal properly. And since skin is inflammed during the healing process, it only makes sense to use a scar treatment that contains aloe. While aloe won’t fade your scar (InviCible uses Vitamin C and licorice root extract to handle that part), it helps to strengthen the collagen structure in your scar to minimize its appearance.

    As I’m about to leave for a vacation where I’m inevitably going to get very sunburned, I’m grateful for this product lineup. I’m going to need all of it!

    I don’t ever go on vaccation without Aloe Vera Gel. Best product to almost everthing actually. Thanks for a very informative and well written post.

  3. Simona

    One of my favourite Aloe Vera products is the 99% aloe body gel. I use it as an after sun or whenever I have some skin redness, I love it!

  4. MarciaF

    These are excellent suggestions. I’ve used both the A Girl’s Gotta Spa wash and the BioRepublic mask and highly recommend them.

  5. Allison

    I don’t have a favorite aloe vera gel or cleansing products so I appreciate your reccos. I am growing an aloe vera plant so I know I’ll be using it once it gets a little bigger.

  6. Stacie

    I love when mother nature adds her touch to beauty products. I have noticed a few products with this as an ingredient. I will look at more labels now to see if it’s included. Sounds like it’s worth it to me!

  7. The Beauty of Life

    I definitely need to find some aloe vera lotions to help moisturize my dry skin after surgery!

  8. Bailey

    Growing up my nan was always pushing aloe, so I do gravitate towards it. I love the aloe sheet masks The Face Shop does.

    WOW! I had no idea aloe vera had so many advantages. I should look into including it in my regime.

  10. Phyrra

    Aloe Vera is great for dry skin

  11. Erika

    Aloe is the shizz. I like to mix conditioner, aloe gel and honey, slop it into my hair and leave it in for a good, long soak. Soooooft hair. 😀

  12. Melissa

    I love pure aloe vera at night before I go to bed.

    Aloe vera works beautifully as a moisturiser on my unnaturally acne-prone skin, without breaking me out. My favourite aloe product is Dr Alkaitis Replenishing Gel.

  14. Honeygirlk

    What a great selection of products. We have Aloe plants in our yard and I grew up as a kid using them to treat burns, etc. So – it’s nice that I can go out and just pick the plant and apply directly to my ouchie when I need it.

  15. Babi

    I keep an Aloe Gel at home at all times! Helped me in so many ways, so many times!

    Great article! I remember my mom used to always have an Aloe Vera plant in the house, she said it works much better than store bought gels.
