I love my face lotion!
It instantly makes my skin feel smoother and refreshed, and after just 3 days I started getting remarks about how fresh my skin looked. I have tried for years to find something that is 1. Natural, 2. actually works and 3. Fairly priced.
Aloe Fresh totally ticks all these boxes plus I love that it is environemntally friendly with practically no carbon emissions as it's grown and packaged here in my own town. It's the only product I use on my face now. I also love the general gel as an all over moisturiser and an after sun gel for the kids too.

I met you at the Matakana market on April 1st. I explained I had swollen legs from a knee injury, and that my skin had become compromised, dry, tight, flaky. I tried your Aloe vera gel with lavender, ylang ylang and sweet orange. My skin recovered and is now soft, moisturized, and healthy looking again. I would like to reorder, but wondered if you sell at other markets, or just Matakana? If I online order, do you post to Auckland suburbs? Thank you for your advise and interest in my skin, I am glad I stopped to talk with you.

I got 3 bottles of your aloe vera gel at the Matakana country market two or three Sundays ago. They were gifts for my sister and nieces. I tried one when I got home and decided to keep it for myself so I will order another please. Can you text or email me and tell me how to order. It is the one with rosemary spearmint and lemon.
I love it!!! It has made my skin spots start to fade after only 4 days and my skin feels incredible. It’s the best skin lotion by far that I have ever tried. All the aloe vera gels in the supermarkets feel artificial and seem to have other things in them like Vaseline and sticky stuff.
Thank you very much. It’s the best!!!

Bruno asked me to give him a review of the Aloe vera gel. I was put onto the Aloe Fresh gels by a friend. I have never put anything on my face except sunblock. I am 43 years old and work outdoors as a Geo - Surveyor. I bought the Natural aloe gel and the Face gel when I was at the market in Matakana. I can't believe how my skin has cleared up and that I don't get anywhere near as sunburnt as I used to. If I do the gel clears the sunburn overnight.
My two kids are forever getting sunburnt but the aloe gel clears it up quickly so they don't squirm around the house moaning and itching.

Hi Bruno and Irenee
I bought your aloe gel yesterday from you, at the market. Already (unbelievable!) the sensitivity I have had on the skin on my upper chest has gone. I'll keep using it for the month as you suggested.

I met you at the Matakana Market a few weeks ago. I spoke to you about my severely damaged hands from dermatitis which came on from a cut on my finger years ago. I bought a bottle of your lotion and it has definitely been the most effective solution I have tried so far. It cleared up a lot of the dermatitis and my hands are still going dry but they are so much better so thank you for providing me with some good relief of the symptoms! Much appreciated! I have just ordered another bottle.
Wishing you a fabulous Christmas and New Year!

Hi I have to tell you that the face lotion I got from you at the market in October is the best I have ever used. My skin is fantastic. I love putting it on. It glides on luxuriously and makes my skin feel incredible and firm. I am 43 years old and the lines that were starting to show around my eyes and on my forehead have almost completely disappeared, especially around my eyes. I have almost finished the bottle I bought about a month ago so I will be at the market again this week to get another. I also got one for my sister who lives in Japan and she wants more as well. I know you asked me when I phoned you to explain how I apply it so you could put it on your web site but I am finding that hard to make sense of, but I will keep trying. You might need to edit it when I get it done which I will try to do this week and bring it to the market so you can have look at it. The writing on your web site is great so I am sure you can help me with it.
Thanks so much. I will see you on Sunday. Brenda, Snells Beach

I drink about a third of a glass of your pure aloe juice every morning and night. It has done wonders for my health. My eyes are really clear and I don't bruise easily like I used to. In general my skin is much more healthy and I feel a lot more spritely which is great at my age. I am in my late 60's and was beginning to think this is the beginning of the end but I now feel I have a new lease on life. This is the first time I have ever responded to someone or a company asking me to review my purchase. Best money I have ever spent.
Thanks to the both of you, one of you I think is Irene. It hasn't helped my memory because I can't remember with confidence, both your names.
I have received the Aloe face lotion and have been using it every morning. I really like it. It's so cooling to apply and feels like it's protecting my skin. I will definitely be recommending it to others.
All the best,

I am amazed that after taking my daughter (13years old) to the doctor and then two visits to a skin specialist (dermatologist I think they are called) and paying over $270.00 nothing improved. Absolutely nothing!!!
A friend told me about the aloe fresh web site and I paid $35.00 for natural aloe gel and about the same for an Acne treatment which I picked up because I live about half an hour away from them.
Its incredible. Her rash and bruising disappeared in two days. They told me to get her to apply the gel every morning and every night. Its about 2 weeks later and her skin is still completely free of the rashes she has had for over 6 months. She also bruises easily and whenever she has a bruise they go away overnight if she puts the gel on them.
Thank you aloefresh, (sorry I can't remember the name of who I saw so I went to the Contact page on your site).

Thank you Bruno, the gel is working wonders for both of us. My husbands piles are gone and I mean gone!!! No more moaning around the house.
And my face has completely cleared up after only 5 weeks. I can go out now without being so self-conscious. We were laughing with each other last night about the same product fixing two different ends of our bodies.
Thanks a mil.
17th June 2022.
I emailed Bruno at Aloe Fresh to thank him for the aloe gel I bought. He assured me it would fix my two teen-ager's acne and as an additional bonus would help with my husband's psoriasis. He encouraged me, in his words, to "Tell the World" and send him a testimonial. He certainly had me sold. He and his partner are full of information about skin health and how our skin works as we age - not to mention other methods of helping with your general health.
I am an early 40's mum with two teen agers and nine year old.
I bought a bottle of aloe vera gel from their Aloe Fresh stand at the Matakana Country Market. My 14 year old daughter is quite disciplined and she applied the aloe gel as Bruno had instructed and the results were unbelievable. There were three ugly spots in particular that were terrible and embarrassed her to the point that she started covering her mouth often when around people. She had also begun to recluse to her room more and more. I felt really sad for her because she is a very social person by nature. Anyway, within two days these three acne pimples had virtually disappeared and her facial skin in general had cleared up. It is about ten days later now and her entire face is almost completely clear and has a healthy glow. Needless to say she applies it every morning and every night and has asked me to find a small bottle that would allow her to carry it with her to school. She is absolutely over the moon.
My son was completely resistant to putting what he thought was a cosmetic on his face and it was the results his sister experienced and me telling him that aloe vera gel is not a make-up cream but one of the oldest skin treatment plants known. I showed him parts of their aloefresh web site about how the plant was known as the healing plant back in the days of King Solomon. Of course that turned into a brief history lesson. But it was more the results his sister was having that finally made him use it and he has just in the last few days become and ambassador for the gel we got from Aloe Fresh.
Thanks so much Bruno and Irenee.
Will see you again very soon.

We have used the leaves mainly for sunburn, but Kerry recently had problems with his scalp. I found a recipe online using rosemary water (fresh rosemary boiled in water) and aloe vera blended together. It is working wonderfully Renata

Aloe Fresh Organic Aloe Vera Gel, I love this product – results in less than two weeks!
Smoothing out fine lines, my skin is more radiant and even in complexion!
I do love the product!

"Aloe Vera has been amazing in helping heal Crohn's disease I suffered from for many years. I drink it everyday blended freshly into water or juice. It is so soothing to the gut! I also love using the leaves on my skin and hair - it's great for scars. So thankful for the best Aloe leaves from Aloe Fresh as it is hard to find authentic culinary leaves here in NZ. Wonderful company and friendly service. I will definitely be a loyal customer for life!"

Hi Irenee and Bruno,
Thank you for sending the neutral aloe vera skin care - it is perfect. I am thoroughly enjoying using it and no irritation to my face. I still enjoy the lavender one for my body.
8th June 2022
I know that your aloe vera is definitely an investment in myself and my health which is vitally important to me.
So glad I came across you guys!
I have used it all already and have been missing it, it definitely helps me feel my best.
Looking forward to receiving my new order.

Hi Irenee (not sure of the spelling of your name so forgive me if it is wrong)
It was great to talk with you at the market. Really interesting.
It's been just over two weeks and my psoriasis has completely gone.
I've had it for well over three years and I've tried ton of ointments and steroids from my doc and all the other stuff you buy at the chemist, spent a fortune!!!
I've even started putting it on my face and that's a first.
This stuff I got from you is amazing. I'm telling all my work colleagues and friends,
See you next week at the market.
Thanks a million,
24th May 2022
Awesome, thank you so much! Just picked them up from work now. Such beautiful leaves! I'm looking forward to using them :-)

I’ve been mixing it (edit-Tom bought Fresh leaves) with MSM Sulphur and peppermint oil and finding it’s really helping with stubborn eczema. Not a full fix but really helping! I'll report further soon.

“I’ve suffered from a sore stomach for the last 7 years since undergoing open lung surgery after having 2 collapsed lungs. With the volume of antibiotics and drugs I’ve had post surgery this has resulted in my stomach lining being very weak – I am now susceptible to frequent sore stomachs and heartburn if I have any spicy or rich foods, coffee or alcohol. I’ve tried many different forms of Aloe juice but nothing works as effectively as the pure juice from the Aloe leaves I have been getting for quite some time now from AloeFresh.
I simply drink a glass before I go bed and this provides instant and longer term relief.”

"I use aloe every day as an aftershave (I shave my face and head) and there is no other application for skin health and freshness as good as Aloe gel straight from the leaf.
I also drink it diluted in water as the instructions on the Aloefresh site says for my digestion which I used to have problems with. Since I have been taking the juice my digestive problems are gone."
I have suffered from stiffness in the mornings for years and was a struggle to sit on the floor and get up. I thought it was just old age (60). I would just like to let you know I have been taking your aloe vera juice twice daily now for a few months and have no more stiffness and can sit on the floor and get up with ease. I have always used aloe care for sunburn and skin but never realized the plant had so many nutrients for internal use. I am wary of many products on the market and I love and trust your fresh leaf. Thank you so much. I am so happy to have discovered your product.

WOW! I'm not usually an excitible person, mainly due to my lack of energy and general tiredness.
I thought I had chronic fatigue which I have read about. Recently (a couple of weeks ago) I bought a fresh leaf from Bruno and followed the instructions on the web site to make a juice. Bruno suggested I drink the blended juice 50/50 with water about a normal glass twice a day. After a week I just had a lot more energy and my head fog was gone most of the time. I am writing this because Bruno asked me to tell my story about aloe. I will write more in a month or two.
Thanks so far Bruno.

I have been making juice from what I thought was aloe vera for the past year until I met Bruno who told me I was going to a lot of trouble for nothing.
He said that the aloe variety I was using is a common plant throughout New Zealand and has no medicinal benefits and it is not the ‘TRUE ALOE’.
I purchased a leaf from Bruno which he said was the real thing and he told me to go to the web site to see how to prepare it and see all the uses it has. I couldn’t believe how amazing the leaf he sold me was. Within a few days of drinking the juice I noticed and incredible increase in my energy and I felt better all round. I also noticed after a few weeks that my BMs were regular and believe me that is a relief. HaHa. I have had difficult bowels for years and now they are great.
I have also started using it on my face and skin in general and it is amazing. Better than any creams and cosmetic moisturisers I have ever bought before and a lot cheaper.

Thanks for the aloe leaf. It's been great for Ryan's skin. Absolutely amazing. As I said I have used the steroid from the doctor for 7 months and now with the aloe in about 3 weeks his skin is so much better. I hate putting chemicals on a 7 year old's skin. This seems great. Can I get another couple from you - please phone me on ________ to arrange.
HAPPY DOG - Dec 2016
I met you at the huckleberry shop when you were doing a display.
Thanks for the aloe leaf and info on how to use them. I was a bit skeptical of your claims at first but now I’m an enthusiastic fan. Told all my friends and a couple of neighbours.
And you are going to laugh (I hope) because my dog is Bruno as well and he is incredibly happy. No more endless itching and scratching and being uncomfortable and unable to sit still. The skin irritation is clearing up incredibly fast.
Really happy, will be getting a leaf regularly.
Please email me more about adding the juice to his diet. I can’t find that on the web site.
