Aloe Vera Moisturising Mist

If you have read my recent posts you will know I'm on a bit of a health kick.
If you haven't have a look here 

I'm just getting in to my third week and things are going OK. There's only been a few days where I have skipped the healthy eating part but that's mainly because of my job.  Its hard working outside in the freezing temperatures that we have been having over the last few week and only having a chicken salad sandwich for dinner so I opted for a few nice, warm, unhealthy meals instead.

The other part of my health kick involves going to the gym and that's going really well. I've been at least four times a week and have been working really hard.
There have been a few days where I really can not be bothered going but my gym partner sends me about ten messages until I give in and get my butt off of the sofa to meet him.

I think having a gym partner is a really good idea. We are also best mates and have know each other over twenty years
We both give each other that extra push to maximise our efforts when working out.

But at the ripe old age of 32, the after effects of a hard work out take there toll on the body.
I don't ache too much, which might be down to eating a lot of high protein foods. But I do notice my skin starting to get a bit rough and dry in places
I've never been one to use moisturisers but I thought I may have to if my skin continues to stay dry

A few  days later I was over the moon when I was asked to review a couple of products - especially one perfect for my skin dilemma

The product was:

Passion For Natural  Aloe Vera Moisturising Mist

Found at http://www.passionfornatural.co.uk/




This headline says it all

From the gym to home, Passion For Natural's 100% organic Aloe Vera range hydrates and polishes skin
A light, refreshing spray - the perfect instance moisturiser

It sounded perfect for me and I couldn't wait to try it out...

So last Monday I got home from work.  I was tired and really didn't want to go to the gym but then I realised I had received a parcel
 Could this be the kick up the back side I needed to get me to the gym?

Yes it was - so I got my gym kit together and replied to of the many text's my gym partner had sent me and headed off to the gym

Then after my gym session I had my normal shower and got my new magic mist spray out
My best mate was like "what the hell is that?!"

When I explained to him that it was for my skin he was, "OK cool"

 When I was dry, being the good friend he is, he was more than happy to help me spray the product all over me
We got a few funny looks off of the other guys in the changing room but it didn't bother us

The applicator was really good it only took a light pull of the trigger and the mist sprays out, covering a large area of the body

It wasn't at all sticky and within about 30 seconds it had soaked into my skin, which was perfect because the changing rooms were freezing and I didn't fancy standing in just my shorts for much longer!

I put my clothes on and headed home

Then when I got home I purposely sat next to my wife to see if she could notice the amazing aroma of the Aloe Vera

And she did straight away, her reaction was "Wow you smell nice."

I just walked off with a smile on my face

The rest of the night I think I was annoying her though, with the constant

 "Feel my skin, does it feel soft?" every 5 minutes

But in fairness, it did feel really good.

So, the rest of the week I went to the gym another 3 times and I followed the same routine every time, but one of the nights I had to go alone, and realised that it was just has easy to use the spray by my self.

I did think of asking a random gym person for help, but I thought that may be a bit too much...

After 7 day of using the mist, my skin was feeling great - no dry spots and there was still plenty left in the bottle. which was awesome.

All in all, I would recommend this product for anybody who suffers with a bit of dry skin, or for anybody who just fancies a little freshener 

You will differently feel the affects after a few days.

I think I am going to check out the other products on the website too now.

If I do I will be sure to let you know what they are like

Hope you enjoyed the post - feel free to comment

  2. Great review, honestly never seen this brand here before but sure does sounds like a good product to have for dry skin. I'll check to see if this is available here in Canada.
