Naturalis Aloe Vera Easy Serum - reader reviewed and rejected
After six weeks, I'm ready to discuss my thoughts about Naturalis Aloe Vera Easy Serum. To begin, I am 62 years old and my skin is thin, dry and sensitive. My skin is in remarkably good shape for my age although I have a few deeper creases on my forehead. The rest of my face is smooth with few lines.
My first impression of the product was that it had a pleasing, floral fragrance. Unfortunately, my first impression of the fragrance changed when I applied the serum to my face. The fragrance seemed much stronger (unpleasantly strong) when it was on my face. The product is a silky, thickish serum and it made my skin feel smooth.
I used it twice a day on the entire right side of my face and neck. I chose that side because I usually sleep on my right side. In the morning, I used the serum after wiping my face with glycolic acid and followed it with eye cream and my day moisturizer and facial sunscreen. In the evening, I used it after using Retin A and before applying eye and night creams. However, I can't say that I have seen any change in my skin; either positive or negative. Since I already have it, I will continue to use it to see if I do notice anything. Maybe it will take a longer period of time.
The product came with no directions on the box or inside of the box. I found that a bit disconcerting. I did an internet search and found a description and directions on a site called AcquaEssentials.com. There are a lot of botanical ingredients and some are organic, but I can't figure out if it is completely organic. Is that just hype anyway? I don't know. The directions that I found online were exasperating. It mentioned to apply the product 1-2 times daily, just a few drops, and to massage the skin until it was absorbed. It mentioned applying on the eye contour, lip contour and neck area. However, it also mentions that it is to be used only on wrinkled areas. So, what if you have wrinkles in other places than the eye contour, lip contour or neck? I found this VERY CONFUSING!! It also details that the serum tightens skin as it treats wrinkles and makes the skin look brighter. So, wouldn't I want to use it on my entire face and neck?
So, if you haven't discerned by now, I feel that this product is confusing and probably not worth the time to try to figure out how to use it or the $69.00 price. While that is not a lot of money, I really have no idea what this product is supposed to do! If I'd seen results, I suppose that I might be inclined to experiment, but I didn't and I'm not. There are LOTS of other products out there!!
