Simply Aloe fails to hit the spot

Now that my little one is at school and I have a few moments to contemplate myself again, I was looking forward to trying out some of Simply Aloe’s new skin care range.

Simply Aloe’s Cleansing Cream for normal to dry skin was first up.
I applied the very creamy fluid to face and neck and was immediately conscious of the smell of the product. It is not strong and perhaps it is even an ‘unscented’ product, however I wouldn’t want to be reminded of it throughout the day.
Tissue off or remove with warm damp cloth are the instructions.
I went for the warm cloth option. After wiping thoroughly, I needed to wash my face again with water to get the cream and scent off my face properly.
My lips especially didn’t enjoy any period of contact with the cream.
I perservered for a week before abandoning the bottle. Simply Aloe’s Cleansing Cream might possibly do a good job of cleansing, but I will be trying another natural product instead.

At the same time I also tried out Simply Aloe’s Soothing Eye Gel.
The gel felt fine, going on with a barely there sort of fragrance. I can’t say that it did wonders for me – maybe my 38 year old crow’s feet are too well entrenched.
Night time application was most unsuccessful, resulting in slightly puffing morning eyes. Never the less I tried it in the day too. The drying gel feels like it has a slight tightening effect, but by late afternoon I was conscious of the eye area feeling dry.
Needless to say the gel is also on it’s way off my bathroom shelf!

    Unfirtuately, Simply Aloe products are NOT all natural products,. While they do contain natural aloe ferox and some plant extracts they also contain harmful chemicals as well as petrochemicals.
