Reviews of women about aloe wrinkle juice
Angelica, 32 years: My first experience of using aloe juice for youthful skin was still at an early age. I still have no problems with the first age changes and the notorious crow's feet. Of course, it is not always possible to make masks several times a week. I usually nourish the skin every 7 days.
Alice, 26 years old: My mother learned from her grandmother how to discipline herself in terms of carrying out procedures with aloe juice. My grandmother is 82 years old, but she looks 65. My mother still does not have crow's feet, and her skin is elastic, despite the small number of wrinkles. I'm lazy, but looking at them I will start therapy right from Monday.
Veronica, 22 years old: And I'm allergic to aloe vera and itchy spots. But it is interesting that when drinking juice inside such phenomena are not observed. I treat them only colds and indigestion.
