Aloe (most likely not Vera) plant ...

Has yellow "leaves" which shrivel up and die. Any suggestions on how to save this guy?

Stop watering. More than likely it's being killed with kindness and too frequent watering. Depending on where you live it may only need to be watered once a week to once a month. I'm guessing it's in a pot not in the ground.

It is in a pot. I haven't watered it in a while, but I think the yellowing started when I repotted it and watered it. Stupid cactus! I thought they were supposed to be low maintenance!

The potting soil could be part of the problem if it's different from what it was used to having. Usually it's too much water with those guys.

You need to use cactus and succulent soil for it.

When I plant succulents I usually use half sand and half soil FWIW. Were you able to save it?

I just bought potting soil to transplant and seperate mine. I didn't think to get cactus and succulent soil.

Not related to the topic of how to save the plant, but plain aloe straight from the plant makes a fantastic gentle facial wash...
