  1. Hello, how long are you supposed to mix? I mixed with a spoon for 5 minutes and did not get the same consistency or color as the picture. Thanks!

    1. Hi Aline, the consistency of mixture depends upon the brand of aloe vera gel. I have combination skin and I am using this for about 5-6 months. This time I used a different brand and the consistency of the gel is very thick that’s why it made cloudy and creamy mixture otherwise it was almost liquidy. So, don’t worry you can use the mixture if the consistency is liquidy.
