    Andrea, used lotion... that is too hilarious

    Aloe Man sells aloe for sunburn and he is truly an Arubain institution but I believe he may just wander around the high rise district.


    I sent this thread off to the customer service department of Aruba Aloe.

    wonder if aruba aloe will take note of the comments.

    ahhh, i never see aloe man, because i rarely am in the hi rise area.

    randi can you go back, and turn the large imbedded photo of the aloe man into a thumbnail?
    he certainly looks like a character.

    i think i may just use the aloe planted in my garden.

    We too have been using Aruba Aloe products for several years. Mom ordered on-line because she used the shower gel, hand soap and lotion 365 days a year. Trip before last (2009), I bought out Hong Kings entire stock of shower gel and special care lotion because it was slightly cheaper there. Mom has sadly stopped ordering due to the new pricing. Aloe Man is wild!! We have seen him in the high rise area every visit for many years. His home-made concoction is great on sunburn but really smells nasty! People even drink it for stomach upset and claim it works if you can get past the smell.

    Aloe Man was on the LaCabana beach a few weeks ago so he must be venturing into new territory these days to hawk his lotion.

    I encountered the Aloe Man on my first trip to Aruba in 2006. He is most definitely a character!

    Bummer about the price increase on the aloe products. I loved the special care lotion.

    I would think and hope if Aruba Aloe customer service/marketing team saw these posts and learn about all the disappointed loyal customers they would and should do something about the pricing. If they choose not to they are only hurting their business and product line. Lets hope for a change in prices so everyone can once again enjoy brining this product home for family and friends.

    that's ok
    i did it for you

    i do not know how to do a "screen shot on my macbook"

    so here goes a written explanation

    make like you are going to reply to the post and hit QUOTE

    then make your post and do not hit submit

    scroll further down beyond where you just typed your post to MANAGE ATTACHMENTS

    click there and you can insert a thumbnail into your post.
    hit UPLOAD
    then you can click submit


    feel free to practice

    it took me a while and lisa guided me.

    if anyone can teach me how to do a screen shot, i would be more than thankful
