[QUOTE=replay57]Accutanedude, can u tell me how much you apply to ur face? I dont seem to be having that peeling effect in the morning :confused:[/QUOTE]

Well basically I load on as much as I can, like literally handfuls of the stuff all over my face. Now I don't even let it dry before I go to bed and even apply another coat before I go to bed and try not to smudge it too much.

If this still isn't working for you I guess it could be the brand your using. I know for a fact if you do this and use Fruit of the Earth 100% Aloe Vera Gel, you will get the peeling effect.

Let me know how this works or if you have anymore questions.
[QUOTE=Green1]I tried the lily of desert aloe vera, but I don't think I put enough because their wasn't any peeling, and I had to rub it off my face. Do you think stores like Walmart, K-mart etc sell aloe vera? Thanks!!![/QUOTE]

I'm sure walmart and/or k-mart would sell it. Aloe, to be honest with you I don't think I got near the peeling effect with Lily of the Desert that I did with Fruit of the Earth. However, still put as much as you can on, even 3 hours or so before you go to bed. As long before you go to bed as possible
Got the aloe on my face right now... Just gotta wait for it to dry before I hit the sack. It feels really interesting... very cold when hit by blowing air but kind of warm at the same time when in stagnent air. I really glopped it on, so I'm hoping it'll create the pealing effect tomorrow morning. I bought the Fruit of the Earth 100% aloe at Walmart for less than $4, just incase anyone is still looking for it. It'll be the clear kind, not the green.

Forgot to store it in the fridge before applying it, but we'll see how things go tomorrow. I'll keep you posted on the effects. After maybe about 4 days or so I'll tell you of any changes. I have decent red marks on my face caused by me having an incredibly hard time not picking at my face, so we'll see if any of that diminishes with this aloe use.

Well it sounds like your using hte exact brand I'm using. Goodluck and make sure you post how it goes for you.
With regards to the peeling I find it really odd that your not getting those results. When I wake up in the morning my entire face has like this mask and it peels off like some big lair of dead skin. Maybe your tossing around in your sleep and it's rubbing off or something, I don't know. I do know that I'm not the only one getting the peeling effect so it's not rare. Maybe it's not completely drying on your face?
[QUOTE=pjblink]Maybe the peeling effect isnt occurring because their faces are too dry? I mean if you wash, then dry and then apply the aloe, it will be absorbed into the skin and so only a thin film will be left on the surface. How about moisturising before you apply your aloe vera and then the skin shouldnt absorb so much, thus leaving it to dry as a layer on the surface and protect.

This is an interesting idea but I personally like to apply the aloe when my skin is dry. I have no idea why they aren't experiencing the peeling effect and my only guess is that they are not applying enough, or they are not applying the right brand. Or, the very obvious, they are simply just peeling/rubbing it all off while they sleep.

My suggestion to avoid this is just to apply a large amount on your face and the layer will be thick enough that it is much more difficult to peel off. Also, the longer you let it dry before you go to bed the better.
#1 That peeling effect you talk about is ridiculous because Aloe Vera has moisutirzing properties, you just have abnormal skin
#2 This Gel works wonders for my face, within 2 days my acne scars arel ighter, I have a cleare complexion, fairer skin, and the acne on my chin has been reduced down to nothing
#3 This alone did not work, I just apply it at night and wash it off in the morning with Cetaphil Daily Cleanser, I use Restisol-A 0.25% in a cream + spf15 base in the morning (something like Retin-A in canada)

Great Product I would recoomend it to everyone to apply at night. Never heard of the peeling effect and frankly sounds quit dumb when on the label it says for moisturizing etc etc...

BTW I use Fruit of teh earth 100% aloe vera gel, refridgerated

Ya I think you completely misunderstood what the peeling effect is. It's simply the aloe peeling off in the morning. Sometimes your pimples that dry up will peel off with it. That's all I am saying. So instead of washing it off, I peel it off.... You only get a layer thick enough to peel off though if you apply it heavily enough.
Hey all,
I've been using aloe on my face for the past three weeks and want to give my 2 cents.
I've used both Lily of the Desert (LotD) and Fruit of the Earth (FotE). I started with Lily of the Desert and used it for two weeks. The FotD aloe was semi-liquid and became runny when exposed to the heat of my hands or face. I applied it thickly on my entire T-zone and washed it off in the morning. I noticed a immediate decrease in facial redness; however, I noticed no effects on whiteheads.
Yesterday, I began using FotE. Although I've only had limited experience with it, there a number of noticable differences. The FotE bottles is larger and dispenses the aloe with less mess. The aloe is more cohesive and does not readily react to the heat of my hands or face. Although I've only used the aloe once, I've already experienced the vaunted peeling effect. However, creating it is tricky. Although I tried to peel the aloe by rubbing it, it produced no effect. However, lifeing up one area that was already peeling made the entire process easier. This is all I've right now; I'll check back soon.

No surprise here, another positive experience with aloe. Very good tip on the peeling effect, this is something I certainly forgot to mention. You will notice that it has started to peel in a certain area and as Electric said just start from there and lift up and it'll start to peel.

I miss my FOTE!! I gotta go on a big hunt tomorrow to find some.
yea the aloe definitely did not peel when i woke up in the morning. i was up pretty late however and it seemed like after about 2 hours i wouldve gotten the peeling, but then i fell asleep with it on and it just feels like there is a thin film covering my face... i have let to look in a mirror, but i am going to wash it off now and see how it goes. i put sooo much aloe on my facei have no idea how i would get the peeling effect if i didnt get it last night. whatever, i think it feels good and as long as it doenst break me out i will continue to do it at least every once in a while.

You might of rubbed a bunch off while you were asleep, and yes I would recommend doing it as often as possible. The thin film covering your face is what protects you from breaking out during the night, and in addition combats the current pimples.
I agree with AccutaneDude on the whole peeling effect. Really, there's nothing special about it, and no it won't pull out blackheads as it isn't strong enough. Personally, I enjoy peeling things, and so when I wake up in the morning I like to peel some of the Aloe off my face for no other reason but that I enjoy it. So if peeling it off is a problem for you (i.e. irritates your skin, or is just gross to you) then just wash it off. Contrary to popular belief, the peeling effect is not why so many people are into Aloe Vera.

Like AccutaneDude said, it's really all about having the Aloe Vera act as a shield for your face against bacteria at night, and it also helps to reduce the pimples you already have. I looooove Aloe Vera gel. In fact, I just bought me some today. A big 20 oz bottle.
