    Excellent skin product for everyday use.
    After a day in the sun or on the slopes.
    Cools and refreshes especially after shaving.
    Highly recommend this pure and natural product.

    I just purchased this gel yesterday and immediately started using it. I have very oily skin and searched for something as natural as possible to moisturize my face without over drying or irritating it. I absolutely LOVE it! I am surprised at the quick results of the texture and lasting dryness of my face. So far I haven’t had to reapply makeup or blot my skin because of the oil. This is wonderful for me!!

    This is the only brand that does not irritate my skin, which is extremely sensitive due to rosacea. I use it as an after shave, and before applying topicals, even deodorant.

    I love this aloe gel for my oily skin! It feels so light and fresh and wears great under makeup. Its thee best moisturizer especially if you have oily/acne prone skin!

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    This aloe gelly is amazing if you have acne prone skin! My skin seems so healthy and has a glow to it since I have been using this under my normal moisturizer. I’ve had fewer breakouts and less redness. I’ll continue to purchase this again & again!

    I too love this product. I give it only 4 stars because I wish it came in a larger size. I use it daily now instead of lotion (which now seems really greasy to me). Aloe Gelly is super light and really softens skin. In the summer I had no trouble getting it at Whole Foods (there was a big display) but now I had to search to find and only one was on the shelf. I think it is great to use year-round.

    Love this product. I have been suffering from eczema for over 30 years, so my skin is extrembly sensitive. I am currenly on a special diet. It certainly helps a lot, however, it is hard to find a moisturizer that is natural and actually works. I have tried many different moisturizers. Some work in some areas and others don’t work at all. This new product, which I was introduced to, works wonder on every part of my body. I wish they made a bigger size as I am using it as my everyday regular, whole body lotion.

    • Thanks so much for sharing and we are so pleased that our product has been a huge success for you!

    This aloe gelly saved my skin! OMG! Last week I had a bad reaction to a `big brand` moisturizer, it caused my skin to break out really badly, looked like a rash under the skin, it was scary. The next day it was worse. Than I searched how to treat rashes and acne, and Aloe came up a lot. OMG, so happy I got THIS product as I tried aloe a while ago and didn`t think much of that product back then. Seriously, THIS Lily of the d Aloe is THE bomb. Cleared my rash-acne up in 2 days almost completely. All I used was a tea tree cleanser and this for moisturizing, and my skin is poreless, beautiful and healthy! So happy!!! Other brands don`t moisturize enough, but THIS one works on my skin like a dream. 🙂

    • Wonderful to hear, Meredith. We are so glad our products are working well for you. Thanks for sharing!

    I am African-American and have naturally curly hair and I use this gelly as a leave-in moisturizer. I absolutely love it and it makes my curls pop! My hair has a gorgeous shine and my curls are springy and happy…lol! I wish this product came in a HUGE bottle (or preferably a jug) because I have a LOT of hair.

  12. Rated 5 out of 5

    Been using this product for years! As a guy, it is the only moisturizer I use. After I shave and before bed every night. When I tell people I am 50, they can’t believe it. It tightens the skin and minimizes wrinkles. I love it!

  13. Rated 5 out of 5

    Love it! It’s my daily moisturizer for
    My oily skin mixed with one drop of vegetable glycerin and sunflower oil better than any other facial moister I have ever tried (I haven’t tried many) but I just know this is a winner and will be using years to come but I do feel it doesn’t give u enough moister alone tho but I guess it’s based on ur skin and preference.

  14. Rated 5 out of 5

    I use this product for my hair.
    Im a dude and a lot of hair gels on the market have all these bad ingredients that dry out your scalp and hair.
    Knowing this is natural is awesome.
    BTW I have thick hair and this brings it down like a charm.

    I went in to my local Fred Meyer (Kroger) store and asked for “plain old aloe vera gel” and of course where did they send me?? To the sunburn care section where that gel has all kinds of other things in there. When I said I was looking for the purer aloe vera gel for topical skin care she suggested I head over to the other isle in Health Care and check there. I found this product, read the label and decided to give it a try. Boy am I glad I did because this was exactly what I was looking for. I recently went to a dermatologist who told me that I had some old sun damage on my upper forehead and bald head and prescribed me some kind of steroidal creme (that was so expensive the insurance company even made her prescribe it twice before approving it taking about 4 weeks or so). In between I had a return appointment and I had been using this 99% Gelly as the creme hadn’t yet been approved. When she saw me she commented how “my forehead looked better” and the “creme was working”. When I informed her that I hadn’t yet used the creme she prescribed and that I was using this “99% aloe vera Gelly” she glanced at me funny and then “went to check on that prescription”. By her reaction I don’t think she expected my answer. Anyway, this is a great damaged skin repairing product made by nature and perfected by Lily of the Desert. It works and feels great and I’m very glad to have found it locally. Thumbs up!! Thanks.

    • That’s excellent to hear, Chuck! Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve been using this for about 2 years now. I use it for a face primer and in my childs homemade baby wipes and actually as a hair gel for his curly flyaways too. I still use a face serum but I put this on as a makeup primer and has worked out so much better than top primer brands. My local store no longer carries this so I will have to resort to online.

    Going through 22 rounds of daily radiation and doc recommended “pure” Aloe to keep the treated area moisturized. Cannot thank you enough for this product! It is heavenly and provides great comfort. Whole Foods also had Jason brand, but it was only 98% aloe compared to your 99%….plus ingredient list was shorter and easier to understand on your label. Way to go!!

    • So glad that our product is helping you! We love to hear that! Best of luck with your treatments.

    i love this stuff, i purchased it at a nearby health store.
    I have oily/acne prone skin, and i’ve noticed a massive difference in my skin since i’ve started using this product.
    i just a few small break outs still, but nothing compared to what i was getting and it also helps heal break outs quite fast!
    It heals the breakouts before they get big and out of hand!
    It also doesn’t burn my eyes, i’ve noticed with some aloe Vera that my eyes would burn if i applied to my face.

    Incredibly happy with this product, definitely recommend this product, even if you get the smaller tube just to try it out, thats what i did.

    Will definitely be re-purchasing, but the larger bottle!

    • That’s great to hear, Stephanie!

    I really want to buy this product and um from Sri Lanka.i don’t know whether I can buy the original product from srilanka.isnt there a way for me to buy this product online in a trustworthy way?i would be so greatful if you can help me with that.

    • Your best bet may be to have it go through India. I can’t find any of our online retailers go direct to Sri Lanka.

    This has been a part of my daily routine for a few years now. Amazing moisturizer, great hair styling/health product, best aftershave for sensitive skin, heals wounds/scars 10x faster, reverses aging when used as a daily facial moisturizer(?- i think it does a little 🙂 ), and by far the best choice in the aloe after sun market (i think Polysorb makes it even better than raw plant gel?).

    • Glad you have found the many uses of our wonderful Aloe Gelly. Thanks!

    As a massage therapist, I absolutely love using Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Gelly by itself as well as using it to create essential oil blends. The gel is so smooth, and absorbs so well. The hydrating aspect of this product is incredible I highly recommend it for a variety of uses.

    • That’s great to hear! Thanks for sharing.

    Can I use this product on the hair as well… I hear that aloe vera is also very beneficial when applied on your hair?

    • Hi Pascal- Yes, it is fine to use the 99% gelly on your hair and scalp.

    Hello I am an African American man. I recently had a bad accident in July 16′ in which I fell of a mountain bike. I had many scars both on my body and face from the fall. I began using this 99% Gelly and it works great. My scars are healing fine. I also used the gelly on my hair which leaves it soft and shiny. The gelly leaves my face feeling tight and replenished. It works so good. I use it after I shave as well. Great product!

    • That’s great to hear. Our gelly has so many uses.

    Is it safe for babies 6 month old on whole body and face?

    • There should not be any issue using this product on an infant or child. Just try to keep clear of the eyes.

    Your products are awesome!
    I do have to ask, when you state the topical is 99% Aloe Vera Gelly, what are the ingredients that make up the 1%?

    • Anything else in the ingredient deck makes up the remaining 1%

  27. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have used the old product in the brown bottle for years and I am glad that the new Gelly is just as good. I have psorraisis and this really helps calm my skin. I rub it into my hairline with no greasy after effects. I use it every day under my normal face cream, and everyone always compliments me on my complection.

    • That’s great to hear, Regina!

    I think my skin might have an allergic reaction to it, because it is not helping with my sunburn and making my skin all crusty. Otherwise, I find it a great product.

  29. Rated 5 out of 5

    I absolutely love this product. My skin is very sensitive, so it’s perfect for me. Works great under makeup, leaves your skin hydrated & smooth and can be used year round.

    • That is great to hear!

    My friend has been using this product for many years. She has the most beautiful and radiant skin. I can’t get over how clear and healthy her skin looks. She’s in her mid 60’s but looks years younger. Very few wrinkles. I just started using the product and absolutely love it! :0)

    • Yea, that is so great!

    All I can say is YASSS. I have natural kinky curly hair and this lays my edges down so flawlessly and hydrates my scalp so good. This is new food for my scalp. It doesn’t flake, and it’s so soothing and hydrating. I can go through 1 bottle in 2 weeks. I will have to order this again very soon. I also use it on my face for hyper pigmentation. After I apply my tea tree oil I rub this into my face, I noticed it reduced redness and evens my skin tone. It’s cooling and feels great. I love this.

    • That’s great! Thanks so much!

    use this product in the winter because i work outside in NY…I noticed that my gel has become liquid..Is it still good to use?? Thx

    • That’s interesting. It is probably still good, but any chance that you could send us an image of your product along with a picture of the top that shows the lot number so we can do some checking? You can send it to info@lilyofthedesert.com or kmcclure@lilyofthedesert.com. If you could also include your shipping information in your email we will get you a replacement.

    I just bought the Gelly today and I love it. My brother has been using it for a long time and he turned me onto it. I wear contact lenses so I find it hard to wear cream on my face before I put my lenses in as the cream works it’s way into my lenses by days end. Do you think I’ll be ok using the Aloe Vera on my face during the day? Thanks for any advice.

    • Yes, you will be fine using the gelly on your face throughout the day.

What is the difference between your Lily Gels and the Gellies?
The 99% Aloe Vera Gelly is specifically formulated to be a topical only. You can use it to help maintain healthy skin. Our Gels, which contain citric acid, are meant to be used internally to help maintain healthy digestion. We do not recommend using the Gels as a topical as the pH levels are different.
