Here is my personal review of Forever Living Aloe Facial Scrub & Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant. LBA are committed to giving our community open and honest reviews about all the products which appear on out site, so please read on….
To say I was sceptical about a deodorant which didn’t have 48 hour protection and was only lightly fragranced is an understatement! I thought I would give Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant a try, as it had been recommended by a couple of friends and I had been pleasantly surprised by other Forever Living products.
Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant provides effective, all-day protection. This gentle, and yet powerful, product is non-irritating and does not stain clothes. The aloe vera formula contains no alcohol or harsh aluminium salts usually found in anti-perspirant deodorants and can be used to soothe after underarm shaving and waxing.
I started using the deodorant about a month ago and to begin with I was constantly checking my armpits to see if I smelt. I’m relieved to report I did not, so that’s the number one box ticked!! It took a bit of getting used to it not having the usual strong fragrance of standard deodorants but now I love the subtle fresh smell.
Another huge benefit of Forever Living Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant is that it contains no harsh aluminium salts or alcohol, which I know is extremely important to a lot of people.
After shaving my armpits I am able to put this deodorant straight on, no stinging and actually soothing – plus it doesn’t stain and makes your armpits super soft!
The last really important point is this Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant stick lasts for absolutely ages. Lucy (who has been using this product since beating breast cancer) says hers last for at least a year, which is just incredible and makes it really good value for money – I have definitely been converted!
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: Totally forgot to mention, the Ever-Shield also acts as a superb fly repellent for horses! As Lucy states below – we don’t recommended sharing your own!
Forever Aloe Scrub
This delicate scrub works to remove dead skin cells which clog up pores and cause skin to look dull. Gentle enough for everyday use for your face or body, the natural ingredients of jojoba and aloe vera help to exfoliate, revealing healthy-looking skin.
Now ladies, as you are probably more than aware, our skin loses it’s natural glow as we get older, for a number of reasons but the menopause can have a big affect on it. During menopause, lower levels of estrogen have a considerable impact on your skin, less estrogen makes you prone to thinning, sagging, and wrinkling. Your body stops making as much collagen, you lose some fat under your skin and your skin’s elasticity drops.
That, combined with dryness caused by hormonal changes, can cause sagging – especially around the neck, jawline, and cheeks and fine lines and wrinkles (see the Caci blog for help with sagging). The lines and wrinkles you get with menopause are often crow’s feet and lines above the upper lip. Oh the joys of getting older – aren’t we a lucky lot!
Needless to say, any help with combating these changes are very welcome! I’ve found the Forever Aloe Scrub to not only give my skin a lovely glow after use but also makes it very soft. It is gentle enough to use on a daily basis without irritating the skin and I personally noticed a reduction in pore size. Using an exfoliator can help reduce the appearance of Age Spots by removing dead skin cells. Plus massaging the scrub into your skin can stimulate collagen production and help strengthen muscle memory (think toned face!).
