    Family Dollar sells their own private label Aloe Vera Gel (that "green goop") in an 18 oz. bottle for $2. :hugs:

    That's a great price. The next cheapest is Ocean Potion (20 oz.) at Wally World for $3.97.

    I use a lot of this stuff in the summer as an after-sun treatment. I also use it as an after-shave :ladiesman:

    I have tons of it growing, despite ongoing draught and such, in the front yard. While the commerical aloe-based stuff is ok in a pinch, I've always had much better luck w/the glop right out of the freshly-sliced plant.

    You don't want to learn the hard way just how well it works in and on the human eyes after they've sustained a liberal (and inadvertent) dousing with (and temporary blindness from) spray carb cleaner, btw.

    Banana Boat's gel has a very nice soapy-herbal scent.

    The Family Dollar brand has a coconut-type scent.

    Ocean Potion has a melon scent.

    N0-AD has no scent.
