A fantastic, chemical-free toner for all skin types!
I'll start by saying that I have the worst of every skin type- So it takes a lot for me to really recommend something. I have sensitive, very acne-prone, oily, yet sometimes flakey skin! Yikes, right? However, since I've been using this toner every morning, I've really seen an improvement in my skin. Not to mention, it's completely natural and feels luxurious because it smells wonderful.

Tips:
- The bottle should be small for a reason, so you have to make a fresh "batch" every couple weeks. I used a travel bottle.
- Feel free to use a small spray bottle, if you think that's easier.
- To apply, pour it onto a cotton pad and dab it all over your face after cleansing.
- Always follow up with a moisturizer that suits your skin type, preferably with an SPF of 15 or up.
- You can easily omit an ingredient or two if you choose. I will say, though, that Aloe Vera is especially important for sensitive or irritated skin, Lemon Juice is especially important for oily or blotchy skin, and Honey is especially important for dry skin.
- Jasmine green tea smells lovely.

Good luck! :]

Aww, that's odd! Are you sure it's the aloe and not additives, fragrance, or coloring in the "aloe vera?"
