The Aruba Aloe man, Andre, is one of the most recognizable charachters on Palm Beach. His resounding voice with excellent spoken English can be heard far down the beach. Additonally, he is engaging and friendly.
I have purchased a bottle of the Aruba Aloe that he peddles. It works fine for sunburn and skin moisturization, but it smells horrendous. He'd probably sell more Aruba Aloe if it didn't stink as bad as it does, but you don't know that until you purchase your first bottle. Another problem is that the twist-on cap, once opened, does not tighten enough to secure it against leaks if you want to carry it home in your luggage.
Would I buy it again? Probably, but just for the novelty of it, and I'd make sure I buy it at the beginning of my vacation week so I can make sure that i use it all. At $10 per bottle, it's not cheap. almost as much buying a Pina Colada from one of the beach waiters.
He's been on Palm Beach almost every day for the last 3 weeks. We had some at home and a few weeks back I burned my arm...really really bad on bacon grease and popped the cap off that and poured the whole bottle on it. Not sure if it helped or not since I blistered up anyway but i figured it didn't hurt it.
Today he had a different outfit on and I asked him if it was new..he said it was a really old one.
One funny guy...likes hotdogs! ;-}

Just wondering what Aloe Man's aloe taste like? If it smells that bad I cannot imagine what it taste like and does it really do the trick for the ailments advertised? Could use some around here lately my husband keeps burning himself on the wood stove (LOL)....at least I still have some aloe cream from the aloe factory tour....my husband keeps teasing me for dragging him thru the tour so every time he uses it I tease him right back! I have seen him many times and he is another memory of Aruba
