Rated 5 out of 5 by Swann For Sensitive Skin
I purchased the starter kit mainly for travel. I've used the Aloe line of skin treatment in the past when The Body Shop first opened in my city because my skin is so sensitive. I must admit I have tried many, many other brands but keep coming back to The Body Shop. Now, I am staying. The Aloe line for sensitive skin works for me. My skin is a bit on the oily side and acne prone ( when I was a teen, I had a pretty bad case of acne, now at age 59 I still have to be careful with the products I use or my acne and sensitive skin will act up). I've noticed when using the Aloe skin care line that my skin stays balanced and pretty much acne free. If for what ever reason I do get a red spot (pimple) I just use The Body Shop tea tree oil on the spot. I have no problem with rashes or redness when using the Aloe skin care line and I love the way it makes my skin feel and look. No greasiness, oiliness, or stickiness; just nice smooth skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by buttercupchica00 Great product!
I work in a retail environment which sells skincare products, however, I just recently decided to branch out and try new things. My skin is very sensitive due to rosacea, excema, and dermatitis, and so far, this set has been PERFECT for my skin. Trust me, I have tried a thousand skincare products for sensitive skin, some dry me out, some exacerbate my redness and rosacea acne, but none have ever felt as soothing as these aloe products. Its worth paying full price for something that works than getting a discount on products that are only so-so for my skin. We only get one set of skin for our entire lives, I want to make sure I'm taking care of mine to the best of my ability. Thanks body shop for this fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by allycatkempf Flaky to Smooth
Before I started using the Aloe kit I was on a strong skin care routine that consisted of high amounts of retin A, Benzoyl Peroxide, and astringent toner.I had bad acne and had to use some strong stuff to get rid of it. But by the end of my horrible acne I was left with beat red, flaky, patchy skin. On top of that It was winter. I decided to try the aloe kit so maybe I could calm down my skin. In just TWO days my skin wasn't flaky or red anymore. But I still had some zits on my cheeks that were under the skin, something my retin A couldn't get to. So i went a step further and bought the Aloe Protective Serum and Seaweed Pore Perfector. I put a dab of each on my face every night along with the Aloe Night Cream after I cleansed and toned. And by George after about four days my skin is glowing with flawlessness. Thank you Body Shop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeaStar Good for sensitve skin
I have combonation skin and I have what I call an 'I' zone instead of a 'T' zone. I use the Aloe products for cheecks and eyes. Calming for those parts and works great. I've used this product for years now and the starter kit is great for travel.
If you have an 'I' zone use the Tea Tree products in those other spots! ;)
