MissRo here! Now, everyone knows the benefits of Aloe Vera. If you don’t, here’s the low-down:
- Pamper yourself to a soothing body rub. Slice aloe leaves lengthwise and use the inner sides as a biodegradable body scrub in the shower.
- Treat burns from minor mishaps in the kitchen—from grease splatters or hot utensils.
- For more major kitchen mishaps like a scald, mix some aloe gel and vitamin E oil into a little jar for a homemade burn healer.
- Banish black and blue bruises by swapping on the good goo.
- Soothe and heal sunburns the feel-good way. Aloe contains cooling properties similar to menthol.
- Take the sting or itch out of insect bites.
- Reduce tissue damage from frostbite.
- Alleviate mysterious rashes.
- Make feet baby soft with an exfoliating foot mask by mixing together a half cup of oatmeal, a half cup of corn meal, four tbsp. of aloe vera gel and a half cup of unscented body lotion.
- Help heal herpes outbreaks.
- Fight Athlete’s Foot.
- Swab over blisters for quick relief.
- Use as an antidote to allergic skin reactions.
- Replace creams and lotions as a general moisturizer for dry skin. Aloe is fast absorbing!
- Prevent pesky pimples and treat acne.
- Soothe Psoriasis.
- Prevent scarring and stretch marks.
- Help rid of Rosacea.

- For rougher patches mix together an organic salt skin scrub using two cups of sea salt, one cup of aloe vera, one cup of organic coconut oil and two tbsp. of local, organic honey.
- Speed up hair growth by massaging aloe into the scalp, letting it sit for 30 minutes, and rinsing.

Well, how about using it as a face primer under your foundation?!
Magic of Aloe’s Satin Shield is a silky lotion made with aloe vera, mica, jojoba esters, and sunflower seed oil…that’s it! A little goes a long way, so you only need a tiny bit to smooth over your face after you apply your moisturizer. You don’t even have to wait a second before you can start applying your foundation.
Not only is it a face primer, but you can use it as a body lotion, or even a hair gloss after you blow dry your hair. So essentially, it’s a 3-in-1 product.
I have used my fair share of primers and even though I don’t wear foundation everyday, when I do this is the primer I use.
You can purchase your Magic of Aloe Satin Shield here.
Do you use face primers? And, if you do which brand do you use and why?
