nice stuff

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Jan 17, 2013 | Verified Purchase

The peppermint cooling is very subtle. Works as just a moisturizer. Also, this is one of the VERY FEW aloe gels that DOES NOT have a bunch of toxic preservatives in it (parabens, any "benzoate" = BENZENE which is in a lot of the other brands on this site, and in commercial brands, DMDM hydantion works by releasing FORMALDEHYDE into a product)! This one is decently cost-effective compared to other brands.

Thanks for your feedback!

very good

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Sep 11, 2012 | Verified Purchase

nice stuff, has not make me break out as far as I can tell (but maybe not good to use around the eyes). I like to add some to my toner and moisturizers also.

Thanks for your feedback!

good

smells very good, fine texture. I bought it to pack into my own capsules to use as a supplement.

Bulky!

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Nov 16, 2007 | Verified Purchase

This is very good for adding to baking products or smoothies, but it does absorb water and thicken a lot, so be aware. I added some to muffins and had to add a lot of water to get it back to workable consistency, which is fine, but be aware. While mixing batter, give it a minute to absorb the water and bulk up, then add more water if you have to. It's also very good in smoothies, but again it will make them very thick. Small enough grind to drink easily, and grinding the seeds probably helps you to digest them and get the most benefit from the nutrients within them, instead of just passing them through.

Thanks for your feedback!

nice flour substitute

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Nov 02, 2012 | Verified Purchase

This has a very fine texture so it makes a good substitute for wheat flour, I add it to muffins and along with protein powder and extra eggs can make a good substitute for the gluten in wheat flour, rising and holding air bubbles as well as a regular recipe. Also it comes in a newer more attractive bag than shown pictured, which is supposed to be resealable but not very easy to seal so I will repackage it into another container.

trying to outsmart nature - it's just not worth it

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Nov 21, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I'm sure if you want Xylitol this item is fine; however I found when I consumed a lot of it, it greatly upset my normal intestinal flora (as it has an antibacterial effect, likely it was killing off the good things in my gut) and it has taken a long time, several weeks, getting back to normal. I won't be able to finish this bag nor will I let my husband consume it after this experiment on myself. Also, it is NOT very sweet, so you have to use a lot of it to get a decent effect; and at this price per pound it is just not worth it. Likely I will go back to regular sugar for baking and use either stevia or sugar for my coffee (price of xylitol makes organic sugar prices look like a bargain). Reading up on cooking sugar free, you will learn that it is the physical characteristics of sugar, not just the sweetness, that are important in baked goods, especially cookies and such that have a large percentage of sugar in them. Xylitol works similarly to sugar in this way because it has the same body and texture and you can bake with it, but with a lower sweetness value you may have to use more or supplement it with other sweeteners, and with a questionable effect on one's flora as well as severe (usually fatal) toxicity to dogs, it has a lot of drawbacks, in addition to the high cost. I know we all try to outsmart nature by using artificial or alternate sweeteners, but doing this usually comes back to bite us in the rear with unintended and dangerous consequences. Stick to real sugar, and as with all things, use it in moderation (it is helpful to increase fiber and protein in baked goods to make them more satisfying while also blunting the glycemic effect of the sugar). And in the end, nothing beats good old willpower for losing weight. Dad always said, everything has zero calories, until you eat it.

very thick, perhaps irritating at full strength

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Jul 01, 2013 | Verified Purchase

First, note that the consistency of pure vitamin E is VERY thick, it pours very slowly and can be difficult to spread on the skin. I added it to some moisturizers I have, seems to be fine that way, but when I put it by itself on my skin overnight I wake up with a swollen face, so I think perhaps it is too strong to use straight by itself and is irritating by facial skin somehow. Also, because of the consistency, I would rather dilute it at least by half with another oil for ease of application. The price of this one is very good, but I won't buy again and will look for 1/2 strength.

Thanks for your feedback!

seems good

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Jul 01, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I only used it in baking once so far but could not taste it, seems to work fine. Also I think you only need to use 1/4 the amount - when a recipe calls for 1 cup wheat flour, use 1/4 cup coconut flour and add extra liquid, it is supposed to absorb a lot more liquid than other flours. and yes this is a good price

Does not sting !

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Jan 30, 2017 | Verified Purchase

Unlike some conventional aloe vera gels I have tried, this one does not sting when put onto raw skin! I like it a lot and will most likely order more. It is very nice, although the packaging is low-budget, the price is low also. It has a good consistency, not too thick or too thin. Also, I was able to make a facial/body moisturizer for myself with this, by combining 1/4 to 1/3 volume olive oil and the rest volume of this aloe vera, mix it up, and apply; also it STAYS in suspension and doesn't separate, which is really great. So you could make a moisturizer for yourself with any oil in this way.

Thanks for your feedback!

good but not strong

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Jul 25, 2012 | Verified Purchase

It tastes good, with great ingredients, no added salt (add your own or not), and at this price allows me to use a ton, as I like. But it is not very strong so you have to use a lot to get a strong flavor.

Thanks for your feedback!
