Forever Living claims to be the largest grower of Aloe Vera and the world’s largest distributor of aloe products. The company offers an array of products including Aloe Drinks, Nutritional Supplements, Bee Products, Skin Care for the face and body, Weight Management, Sonya Cosmetics, Sonya Skincare and Personal Care. The skin care line is quite extensive and includes Alluring Eyes, Alpha E-Factor, R3 Factor, Forever Aloe Scrub, Forever Marine Mask, Forever Epiblanc, Firming Foundation Lotion, Rehydrating Toner, Exfoliating Cleanser, Recovering Night cream, Facial Contour Mask Powder, Aloe Activator, Aloe Eye Makeup Remover and finally Aloe Fleur De Jouvence. Forever Living uses Aloe Vera in most of their products. Aloe Vera has been used for centuries to treat sunburns and other types of burns to the skin, as well as being traditionally used to heal other types of wounds. Experts agree that Aloe Vera, when used alone in its raw state, is best. It seems that once added to a skin care formula, it loses most of its healing benefits besides its anti-inflammatory powers.
Clinical studies suggest that Aloe Vera has some anti-inflamatory, anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial benefits but it has not been proven to be very effective in preventing or reversing the signs of aging. Since there are so many products in the line, let’s take a look at one of the items, the Forever Living Firming Foundation Lotion. The claim is that this is a state-of-the-art-lotion and a daily moisturizer that protects against the elements of the sun, wind and environmental damage from pollution. It combines the “science of dermatology” with the “art of cosmetology” to effectively reduce the visible signs of aging by helping to firm the skin and to retexture and tighten the pores, as well as providing a protective layer for under makeup application. In addition to Aloe Vera, the lotion contains special moisturizers and conditioners, as well as Collagen, Elastin, vitamins A, C and E.

The Bottom Line
Although the Forever Living Skin Care line offers many products for eyes, face, body and lips, the ingredients listed on the packing are fairly basic. Nothing in the line suggests that any advanced anti-aging properties are included in the formulas. Forever Living Skin Care does use Aloe Vera in their products, which do offer some soothing and healing benefits for the skin. It would be helpful if Forever Living would include customer testimonials on the website to help consumers make a better selection of products. The company does offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee and 30 day return policy for those wishing to try the line.
