**New** Aloe Body Wash

Coming soon to add to the great Aloe family of skincare products is Aloe Body Wash. Personally I have always happily used the Aloe Liquid Soap but I am looking forward to trying this new product when it is released soon.

Gentle, powerful cleansing with skin-conditioning aloe.

  • Gentle yet powerful cleanser
  • Removes dirt and oil to leave skin feeling clean and soft
  • Retains skin’s moisture
  • Maintains and promotes skin hydration
  • Leaves skin feeling clean and fresh

Let the best of what nature has to offer nourish and cleanse your skin with Forever’s new Aloe Body Wash. This sulphate free formula features powerful yet gentle cleansing, with skin conditioning ingredients that will wash away dirt and leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed.

Aloe Body Wash is pH balanced to help retain skin’s moisture and promote hydration. Key ingredient, aloe vera, aids anti-ageing by promoting moisturising while vitamins A, C and E nourish and support healthy-looking skin.

Our formula features a rich, inviting fragrance of woods, amber and a warm blend of herbs for a scent that is universally appealing. You may notice something a little different about Aloe Body Wash’s unique colour. The pleasing shade of seafoam green comes from naturally-derived copper chlorophyll!

You’ll feel the difference right away as Aloe Body Wash forms into a rich, creamy foam that rinses away easily without stripping your skin of moisture. The gentle cleansing is made possible with ingredients like argan oil, arnica flower extract and hydrolysed jojoba esters, which help soften skin while increasing hydration and smoothness.

Don’t reach for another body wash that leaves your skin feeling dry or stripped of nutrients. With Aloe Body Wash, you’ll get the powerful cleansing you’re looking for with the perfect blend of ingredients to leave your skin looking and feeling healthy and refreshed.

Are you suffering with Maskne?

We are all having to get used to wearing facemasks when out and about now, especially if you are going to any enclosed spaces like the shops or to the doctors or on public transport, and in the uk they are expanding the areas where you need to wear masks to other areas where you will meet ‘strangers’ in an indoors environment like museums and cinemas.

Wearing a mask for a short space of time for me isn’t too bad, but I know for some people it can make you feel claustrophobic or short on oxygen. I do however have a husband and a best friend who are partially deaf, so I’ve found a novel solution for that with a mask with a clear panel.

You can even see me smile in my special lipreading mask.

But if you work in an environment where you are constantly customer facing, like my daughter who works at a local pub restaurant,or you work in healthcare, you can start to suffer with maskne, or a new outbreak of acne due to wearing a mask for long periods every day.

So how can you combat this problem and give your skin it’s best chance to remain clear and bright during this global pandemic?

Avoiding Maskne

  • Avoid harsh scrubs and thick creams and be kind and gentle on your skin. Products like the Sonya Daily Skincare range, which contain aloe gel are super kind to the skin.
  • Be sure to allow the products you use to be fully absorbed before putting on your face mask if you can.
  • When you return home and can remove the mask gently cleans your skin to remove the build up of seat and debris gently.
  • Wash your mask regularly. It’s best to use a clean mask at least each day if you are using a cloth mask, and if you need to swap masks during the day wrap your mask in a small bag when you remove it and wash carefully when you return home to prevent a build up of germs from causing more problems. The Forever Living Multi Purpose Detergent (MPD) can be used for machine washing or hand washing your masks and has the bonus of being environmentally friendly too. You only need a few drops for handwashing or half a cup per washing machine load and it is kind to your hands and your clothes.
  • Avoid wearing thick foundation under your mask if you can. A gently tinted moisturiser will mean you are less likely to block your pores and cause more problems. Concentrate on making your eyes stand out, after all that is what people will notice first when you are wearing your mask.

As a bit of fun why not show me your mask selfies on our facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SiliconBulletForever/ . I think we will be wearing masks for a long time yet so we may as well make the best of it and get used to them if we can.

Aloe Vet Formula to be Discontinued

Unfortunately although Aloe Vet Formula is very popular in the UK, it is not as popular worldwide. I think it must be as we in the UK look after our pets so well.

Pets are part of the family too and Aloe Veterinary Formula is better than any belly scratch so it’s the perfect way to show that you care! This easy-to-apply spray is ideal for soothing irritations, cleansing areas before applying dressings or to achieve a glossy and conditioned coat after bathing. The gentle formula can be diluted to cleanse irritated eyes or to clean dirty ears. It can also be used as a soothing leg wash to provide protection after exercise. For pets and horses.

After careful consideration though, Veterinary Formula is being discontinued due to low global sales. For those who regularly use this formula, Aloe First offers a similar product formula to help meet your needs and is a similar cost of £17.44.

The UK and Ireland have got approximately 8-9 weeks of Veterinary Formula, but as news of the discontinuation get’s out I fear it may not last that long.

Aloe Veterinary Formula £15.85

As always, Forever Living don’t take these changes to our product catalogue lightly but appreciate the opportunity to bring new, powerful formulas to our Business Owners and customers to meet global trends and demands.

If you want to be sure to get a good supply of the Vet formula then please click on Buy Forever Living to access my online shop and get your order in as soon as possible.

New Hydrating Serum

I have to admit I was a little upset when Forever Living discontinued the Sonya Serum. I am not a huge user of moisturisers and creams despite being a Forever Living distributor – I joined mainly for the Aloe Drinking Gels – but the Sonya Serum was the one product which I use every day on my face. It just felt so lovely on my skin and had a fabulous fragrance.

But I am just coming to the end of my last bottle, and I have been eeking it out as much as I can, but now it’s time to try something new.

New Hydrating Serum

So today my email from Forever was all about our new Hydrating Serum. It contains pure aloe vera and four types of hyaluronic acid. and helps shield against environmental stressors, and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is designed to be used before my favourite Forever moisturise, which for me is the ‘purple’ one.

Hydrating Serum £34.00

Key Ingredients

  • 4 types of hyaluronic acid
  • Stabilised aloe vera gel
  • Coconut fatty acids
  • Shea butter
  • Snow mushroom
  • Tamarind
  • White tea
  • Mimosa bark

I haven’t tried it yet, but wanted to share the details with you if you have struggled , like me , to come to terms with the end of my Sonya Serum bottle.

Infinite Firming Serum is definitely being added to my next order, or if you want to try it yourself then just click on Buy Forever Living at the top of this page to access my customer store and order it for yourself.

My Favourite Forever Living Products

I was asked this week which Forever Living products I take regularly. After all I only joined Forever originally as I loved the products and wanted to get them cheaper for myself (I am a bit stingy with my money!) I have been a distributor now for over 8 years and my favourite products have not changed much over all that time, so here are my top 5 products that I couldn’t live without…….

Drinking Gel – I start my day everyday with a shot of my chosen Aloe drinking Gel. For me I take Forever Freedom, which is flavoured with Orange and has added glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM. This is great for people with an active lifestyle and keeps me moving.

Forever Freedom

Forever Move – With my drinking Gel I take a handful of supplements – the main one being Move. This contains natural eggshell membrane (NEM) and curcumin turmeric (Biocurc), and again is aimed for people who are very active and like to keep moving as I do.

Forever Move

Arctic Sea – I am not a great fish eater, but I know my body can’t make omega-3 fatty acids, so I also take these each day as they contain the perfect balance of essential fatty acids EPA – which contributes to the normal function of the heart – and DHA – which contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function. My brain needs all the help it can get, especially right now with COVID-19 lockdown.

Arctic Sea

Bee Pollen – this is one of the first supplements I tried from Forever, and is still part of my daily routine. It is a nutritionally-rich substance that provides bees with everything they need to survive.   This pollen has then been combined with honey and royal jelly to create Forever Bee Pollen, and is something I take every day without fail. If I need a little boost mid afternoon then this is the supplement I reach for.

Bee Pollen

Vitolize for Women – as a woman of a certain age (clinging onto my 40s right now by the slimmest of margins) I take this blend of herbs, iron and vitamins which is designed with women’s health needs in mind. It also contains B6, which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. It seems to keep me well balanced and as I usually get a negative reaction to iron tablets this is just enough for me.


So these are my top 5 and all products which I won’t do without. They keep my body working well which is something I really need along with my good nutrition and Keto lifestyle. If you’d like the details or prices of any of the products then just get in touch or click on the images to check out my online shop.

Remember Forever is so confident in the quality of its products that we offer a complete 60-day money-back guarantee if customers are not entirely satisfied. Just return the unused product with the receipt to me within 60 days of purchase and I can sort it out for you if you bought through my online shop or direct from me.

Until next time, Aloe Aly.

NHS Charities Together

Due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, Forever UK has decided to switch our online £1 charity donations from the Bush Fire Relief Fund to NHS Charities Together Emergency Covid-19 Urgent Appeal. This is for the UK and for Northern Ireland only, with the Republic of Ireland returning back to Rise Against Hunger.

The switch took place week commencing 18th May 2020

What is the NHS Charities National COVID-19 Urgent Appeal?
NHS charities are the legal way that the NHS receives, holds and spends charitable funds. The beneficiaries of NHS charities are NHS patients and funds are spent in addition to core NHS funding, they do not replace government money. There are 230 NHS charities in the country.

NHS Charities Together is the national umbrella organisation for these charities, working closely with the Charity Commission, Department of Health and Social Care, and BHS England, Scotland and Wales to represent, champion and support the NHS’ official charities.

Key Messages for COVID-19: Four ways to help the NHS

  1. Follow NHS and Government guidance on how to keep yourself and others safe
  2. Support your family and friends through your social messaging and communications networks
  3. Support your local NHS – there are over 200 NHS charities dedicated to supporting patient care at their hospitals, ambulance trusts, mental and community health bodies.
  4. Fundraise in aid of or donate to the NHS Charities National Appeal that acknowledges and supports NHS staff, volunteers and patients impacted by COVID-19

How can Forever Business Owners (FBOs) and customers donate in the UK?
From week commencing 18th May, FBOs and customers will be able to opt in to donate £1 whilst purchasing products via the online store. This can be done by following the below instructions:

  • Click on the Buy Forever Living at the top of this page
  • Click Enter Shop and choose Great Britain
  • Add selected products into your shopping cart
  • When viewing the contents of your shopping cart, select ‘Add NHS Charities Together £1 donation’
  • The £1 will be added to the order total

How the funds will be spent

The NHS Charities Together work with Trustees, members and the CCLA to set up an emergency grants fund for members.

  1. Regular grants to NHS Charities – this will quickly grant our funds from the National Campaign to NHS charities to spend quickly on enhancing the wellbeing of NHS staff, volunteers and patients impacted by COVID-19 such as
    1. Funding wellbeing packs for staff, volunteers and on wards
    2. Supporting patients’ mental health through isolation
    3. Benevolence
    4. Other items identified by members of their NHS bodies that enhance wellbeing
  2. Post pandemic grants to NHS members – an amount of funds will be spent after the crisis on supporting the mental health and recovery of NHS staff and volunteers. This will be in the form of grants that provide respite, rehabilitation and mental health recovery of NHS staff and their families
  3. Grants to NHS charities to support their voluntary, care and hospice sector so that NHS patients leave hospital more quickly and safely, stay or remain out of hospital. Supporting the integrated care partnerships in this way significantly reduces stress on the NHS and provides the wrap around provision for patients which is vitally needed.

The Sun has come out!

I am really starting to lose track of how long we’ve been working from home now.  I think it might be 3 weeks tomorrow but it could be wrong – it’s feeling almost normal already which is very odd.

What is lovely is to see the sun is out – and although it is early April I am seeing lots of pics of friends and family looking a bit pink in the face.  It is important to remember that even here in the UK the sun can be stronger than you think and catch you out.

So here is a lovely picture of me in my back garden holding my Aloe Sunscreen, which is super kind to my skin, as it contains inner aloe leaf, as well as being water-resistant and has an SPF of 30.IMG_20200405_130022

It’s a good job it is water-resistant as although we are being careful and keeping a social distance from our neighbours, they happened to start jet washing their garden trampoline as my daughter and I sat out in the sun so we had an impromptu shower!

I know we are really lucky to have a garden where we can sit out in the fresh air – and many people aren’t as lucky – but please take on board the current advice and don’t drive to your local park, beach or beauty spot to enjoy the sunshine – if we all did that then the government will stop everyone from going out to exercise and the actions of the few will spoil it for the sensible many.

How are you coping with the getting out in the sunshine?  Please share your pictures with me, and if you haven’t managed to get any sunscreen at your local stores there is plenty in stock on my online shop – just click buy forever living and order for direct shipping to your home.

Stay Safe and Stay Home..

Coronavirus Update

You can see from my previous posts that’s it’s been a while since I blogged in here.   Since I joined 4Networking 3 years ago I have been concentrating on my other business, Silicon Bullet, where I help unconfident bookkeepers to use Xero and Sage software better.  I also got involved with running the networking meetings, which takes a fair amount of time, so my Forever Business took a back seat.

That’s the beauty of a business with Forever though.  You can pick it up and put it down as it suits you.

So why am I back blogging again now?

Well, I thought this would be a great place to record some thoughts and feelings whilst in lockdown, and let’s face it we don’t know how long we will be here, so any and all income streams I have need to be explored.

It’s funny, that as I have put my Forever business down I rarely sell any products. It’s something that if you don’t talk about it to people then you won’t find new customers, and those you had tend to drift away too. Well actually it’s not funny at all.  This is not an easy business, you need to work at it, and if you don’t work at it you won’t earn any money from it.

But in the last 2 weeks, customers have come out of the woodwork to order from me – and the most popular product is the hand soap.  With washing your hands so much some soaps can be so drying and not kind to the hands at all, so I’ve sold double figures of hand soaps in just over a week.  We also have stock at head office and deliveries can be made direct so there is no danger of spreading the virus.  It’s not megga bucks but right now every penny counts, and the customers who contacted me couldn’t get what they wanted at local shops – so everyone wins.


So how are you coping with the your ‘lockdown’ and ‘social distancing’?  Do leave me a message and connect and let’s all help each other through.
