Forever Living Products, are they really that good?

I have decided its time to start looking after myself, not just externally but internally.

A friend recommended a Forever Living pack that kick starts the system, but it's about £120.

Is it any good or are there better things to try?
Does anyone use any specific products that have worked for them?
Either from Forever Living or other places?

If you want to try aloe Vera you'll find it cheaper almost anywhere else. Try Amazon where you can buy it pure and at a fraction of the price.

I don't know much about their other products but do know it's more a pyramid-type selling thing so those recruiting others or selling these highly-inflated-in-price packs get steadily more money

Do an advanced search on forever living on here - I personally wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

Sorry for the negativity, just wary of them but someone else may be better informed and maybe the stuff really is amazing !

Nooooo don't go there, don't ever buy anything from them. They will never ever leave you alone.

It is pyramid selling. There is a long current thread about it

Over priced shit.

Check out the thread on budget buys that work instead. Or spend 120 on a nice spa day

Thank you for your honesty ladies, that's what I like smile

I'll have a search on here for budget buys that work. I'm just reluctant to buy things without a recommendation, just in case what I choose turns out to be rubbish.

I know holland and Barrett sell aloe Vera products, but not sure how good they are.

I am shit at linking on the app, but it is this week and called products under a tenner that work (or similar ).

No, drink more water, eat more fruit and veg, cleanse, tone, moisturise, use sun screen, avoid too much booze, avoid FLP parties and anything that buys holidays and cars off the back of your circle of friends and acquaintances.

I've had a look for that thread but can't find it, lol!

I'll def avoid FL then

Anyone got any alternatives?

NoRockandRollFun Sat 13-Jun-15 22:27:35

Or this hilarious thread about FL?

Aloe gel is great stuff, cured my wedding ring dermatitis after months of trying other things, but Holland and Barratt is cheaper and it is almost identical.
