40 Years of Getting it Right *Competition*

Next year Forever celebrates its 40th birthday and to honour the occasion, they will be launching a New Year campaign called ‘40 YEARS OF GETTING IT RIGHT’. The campaign will run throughout the month of January and will revolve around our flagship and founding product, Forever Aloe Vera Gel. This gel has literally impacted the lives of millions of people – Forever got it right in 1978 when it was first introduced to the market, and 40 years later, they are still getting it right!427566_323028404422414_219087814816474_902641_18814447_n

The campaign will encourage you to join us in getting it right by taking a daily shot of aloe throughout January. We know that Forever Aloe Vera Gel’s unique formula is packed with so many nutrients, beneficial properties and 96% PURE aloe, that the impact it can have on an individual after just one month of consumption is astounding.

The campaign will operate on social media so make sure you keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as we will be sharing aloe facts, tips and encouragement to help motivate you. A competition will also form an integral part of the campaign. The winner will receive an IPad and a C9, second place will win an IPad and third place will get a C9 programme. To be in with a chance of winning, you will be invited to submit a video or image of yourself taking Forever Aloe Vera Gel and uploading it to social media using the hashtag #AloeChallenge. We would love it if you could take part in this challenge.

We will be launching this competition at 10am on 1st January 2018 and it will close at 11.59pm on 30th January 2018; the winner will be announced on 31st January 2018 by Forever Living Products. Please be aware that participants only need to submit one photo or video linked to the hashtag to qualify for the competition, but they can, of course, post more if desired. The full terms and conditions will be available on request on 2nd January 2018.383477_245805568851936_100002674843798_441152_222950840_n

If you already drink Aloe every day like I do then make sure you join in by posting your own pictures and videos.  If you would like to participate and try Aloe for the first time then get in touch via the Contact Me form with the subject #AloeChallenge and Alison will get in touch about how you can order your bottle.

The key to our success is a commitment to quality and purity.  Our aloe vera is essentially identical to the inner lead gel due to avoiding herbicides and pesticides , and with our patented stabilisation process.  Also because we produce our own aloe, we can guarantee the quality without being dependent on any other suppliers.

Heat Lotion

Please comment below with your favourite and what you like about it.

Aloe Gel Serving Size

The ingredients of Forever UK’s Aloe Vera Gel drink will soon be changing. The new formulation will contain less preservative agents to make it a much fresher product.

We only use 100% Inner Leaf Gel

We only use 100% Inner Leaf Gel

The Aloe Vera Gel will therefore have a shorter shelf-life, so once opened should be kept refrigerated and consumed within one month, rather than the 3 months currently recommended.

This change will be reflected on the Aloe Vera Gel bottle labels, showing a 120ml serving size and details of the new formula.  The current bottles show as 90ml daily service size.

What does this mean to you?

If you buy your Aloe Gel from me at Silicon Bullet Forever then I will make sure you are aware when the new bottles become available.  If you are on a low dose of Aloe such as 30mls per day then the bottle should last 33 days, which is just 3 days longer than the recommended shelf life once opened.  You may choose to up your dose a few days a month to make sure none of your Aloe is wasted.

Good News

Less preservatives can only mean a better quality fresher product.  In order to ensure the highest quality at all times, Forever cultivates aloe vera on its privately owned plantations, avoiding the use of herbicides or pesticides.  Our product is one of the purest available on the market.  Treated with the greatest care, avoiding pasteurisation, freeze-drying and heating, the aloe vera retains its beneficial properties.

Forever Living Top 10 Products – 2nd Year

So I was just taking a trip down memory lane and looking at some posts I wrote a year ago, and I found my top 10 products post from just over a year ago, showing my best selling products from my first year as a distributor. Back then I wondered how things would change in my 2nd year.  I couldn’t resist taking a look and seeing how things have changed.  There is a huge range of products to choose from with Forever including for life balance, fitness and weight management, beauty and wellness and animals and home.

Forever Living - Full range

4. Aloe Vera Gelly (Previously 9th) – Essentially identical to the aloe vera plant’s inner leaf, our 100% stabilised Aloe Vera Gelly lubricates sensitive tissue safely. As if squeezed from the leaf, it’s absorbed quickly and calms irritated skin and helps soothing scarred skin.

2. Aloe Vera Gel (Drink) (Previously 3rd) – The aloe leaf contains over 200 different compounds. Our gel is preferred by those looking to maintain a healthy digestive system and a healthy energy level.

So Aloe lips has been knocked off the top spot by the Aloe drinking Gels, which means my sales now reflect the results of Forever Living as a whole, with the drinking gels being the most popular products.  If you would like to learn more about the 4 different flavours of Aloe drinking gel then take a look at my previous post Which Aloe Gel is Right for Me?

One thing I have found as a distributor is that I find it easiest to promote the products I use myself, and I use all the products from my top 10 list personally.  It means I can talk from personal experience of how the products have helped me.

What does Aloe Gel taste like?

One of the most frequent  questions I am asked when I am meeting people to tell them about Forever Living’s Aloe Vera Gel is “what does Aloe taste like?”

If you are in a room of Forever Living Distributors, this question is always replied to with a bit of a nervous giggle – as those of us that have tasted Aloe Gel know this is not an easy question to answer.  We nod and wink and say, “it’s delicious”. It has become a bit of an in joke amongst distributors.

This is why I often have Aloe Gel available for people to taste at events, and I get many reactions to that first taste too.  Firstly by being honest and saying it is not to everyone’s taste, you do lower expectations, so many take a nervous sip and say, “it’s not THAT bad”, whilst others screw up their faces and say, “how do you drink that?” or hardly even let the gel touch their lips.

So firstly, before you taste the gel and walk away in disgust, cast your mind back to that first taste of wine, beer, spirits or even coffee that you had. Did you think that it tasted delicious straight away, or was it a taste and flavour you gradually came to love?

Aloe Drinking Gels

Our Gel does come in four different varieties and flavours, although for many people the Plain Aloe Gel (or ‘The Yellow One’ thanks to the distinctive bottle colour) would be the gel of choice, some people just can’t get used to the taste – so here are a few tips to help soften the blow:

  • Drink the Gel quickly – don’t let it touch the sides.  One friend drinks hers out of a shot glass, as the positive mental images of drinking from a shot glass help it go down smoothly, another uses a wine glass for similar reasons.
  • Have another drink or snack ready to take the taste away – be that fruit juice, water, or some other drink.  My daughter uses a chocolate biscuit most mornings!
  • Add something to the Gel – you can dilute your gel with fruit juice – although orange is not recommended as it is quite acidic.  I have been told that blackcurrant juice works well.  One thing you do need to watch out for is that some of my customers don’t like this method as they can still taste the Aloe in the drink, and it just takes longer to gulp down.  A recent tip from Dr Peter Atherton (who is the GP on our Advisory Board) was to add a little fruit cordial or squash  to your Gel – this has the advantage of being less bulky and stronger in flavour than fruit juice and masks the taste quite well.
  • Start with a small dose (say 15ml) and work your way up to the recommended dose of 60ml gradually.  This gives your stomach a chance to get used to the Gel.

If you really can’t get on with the Plain Aloe Gel, then you can try one of the three other flavours.  Berry Nectar has added apple and cranberry Juice, Forever Freedom has orange juice added, and Bits n’ Peaches is the sweetest of the four with, yes, you guessed it, peach juice added.  I have written another post Which Aloe Gel is right for me ? with more details of the 4 different flavours.

The recommended daily dose of Aloe Vera Gel as a general tonic is 60ml per day, taken on am empty stomach first thing in the morning.  If you are taking the gel for a specific reason, however, you can up your daily dose to 100ml per day quite safely.  I take 60ml of Forever Freedom for the glucosamine, and condroitin and MSM due to my active lifestyle, and 60ml of Berry Nectar as I like the flavour.

So what does Aloe Vera Gel taste like?  It tastes delicious, it tastes like TCP, it tastes medicinal, it tastes like it is good for me.  The answer is different depending on who you ask – what does it taste like to you?

Aloe Lips – my Number one Best Seller

Now I know that for Forever Living as a company  the best-selling products  are the drinking Gels, but even if I added all my drinking Gel sales together, the Aloe lips still comes out on top!

Aloe Lips really is a little tube of magic.  Not only is it a wonderful Lip Salve, but it is fabulous for taking on holiday to use on bites and stings as it is just a small tube of pure Aloe in a handy convenient portable pack.  Most people don’t just buy one so I guess that is why it has been my highest selling product in my first year – I’ll be fascinated to see how this changes in my 2nd year as a distributor!
