The lotion is great and I love it, but I think the shampoo and conditioner are even better than some of the most expensive ones here in the States.

Check out the website for Aruba Aloe to see all of the products made by them at: www.arubaaloe.com (http://www.arubaaloe.com). We buy lots of their products while on the island and order what we need on line while at home. We shop at their outlet store on the island right where the aloe grows, and are very satisfied with everything. They also have great gift items.

Around 5 years ago I developed a reaction to, of all things, antiperspirant. My armpits would get blisters that lasted for a week, how special. I tried everything including Tom's of maine, all natural non scented, same problem. On our trip in June I bought the aloe factory for men, no problem at all and it works as well as any other I've used. Myself, my wife and friends are all very happy, lol.

They sell aloe candy at the factory store. My daughter ate it, and liked it. I think it has "magically" stomach powers..LOL

When we visited the Aruba Aloe Factory, I wolfed down a number of their complimentary chocolate covered aloe candies. Then, on the tour, they went on to tell us that one of the first uses of aloe was as a laxitive. I was horrified, but survived.

This takes a moment to download. The directions are on the second page. You do not have to take the tour to shop in the store.

My wife found a coupon in something on island where the tour fee was $5.00 and you got a $5.00 credit at the store so it was a wash. The tour was short and somewhat informative but once should last a lifetime, do it if you find the coupon, otherwise just do the store.

Andrea, that is pretty cool....I have heard it has the ability to cure stomach ailments as well as a few other things, but have never heard of anyone that actually uses it...they tell you all that stuff at the factory, but you really don't belive it, just figure it is marketing....I have however tried the candy and it is very tasty !!!!

Hands down favorite is their After Sun Skin Repair! Brought home 5 bottles this year - LOL! Great suntan lotion, lip balm, special care lotion, too. The outlet is a nice store but we buy it at Ling & Sons for less.

All prices in USD
$4.71 Shampoo 9 oz.
$4.71 Conditioner 9 oz.
$6.13 Special care lotion 9 oz.

I will have to add to my lists of things to buy while food shopping, why bother bringing that stuff with you. I like, less stuff to bring down, I always bring to much, made a promise to myself, bring 1/2 of what i would normally. thanks

The face care lotion and after sun lotion are the two we buy the most, however, we have never bought anything we did not like.

Hello all, Myself and some of my girlfriends will be going to Aruba in 16 days. (No husbands this year.:cool:) We want to go to the Aloe Factory but are wondering if there is a tour there or is it just a gift shop? I am really interested in trying the shampoo and conditioner. As well as other products. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks

There is a short tour. Imo, not worth it. They used to charge for it, not sure if they still do. You can buy the producuts cheaper at the grocery store.

Actually, my family enjoyed it...some might not think it so great..we get into things and how they are made...Our educational part of our trip..( Next is the Balashi plant)
A movie is shown then you walk above the walkway in the plant as they package ect the aloe.
The gift shop is at the end of the tour..they have items such as shampoo, deordorant, candy, water, sunscreen, moisturizer, T shirts...
YES, it is way cheaper at ling and sons....

When we visited there is a school across the street...kids came out and watched us looking over the massive fields of aloe plants..

My husband and I did the aloe factory tour on our honeymoon, at first I thought, really, we are doing this on our honeymoon, but being that I LOVE the products and am always interested in how things are made, I ended up enjoying the tour after all. It was informative and the price was LOW so it was something neat to do in some cool air conditioning!

We went again in January on a family vacation, didn't really feel the need to go thru it the second time, but my sister & her boyfriend hadn't been before so we went...I like seeing just how clean the facility is that the products are manufactured in, makes me happy to know it is so well kept up!:p

i love the hair products...and the more medical items are great- cleared up a skin rash my friend's husband had.... and worse great on my husband's psoriasis- not a cure, but a help indeed.
the candy is dandy!
