Every fair skinned girl needs a good after burn gel in her summer time beauty product arsenal. After just a few minutes of being outside sometimes I get color that will just look red at first, but even the most unassuming burn will start peeling in hours. We all try to protect ourselves from the sun’s harmful UV rays, but every once in a while we forget to reapply or underestimated sun exposure during overcast weather.
That is when an after burn gel is necessary. I don’t like to wait until I’ve already gotten burned to try and run to the drug store. Like most people I won’t notice until I am in so much discomfort the second my head hits the pillow to go to sleep. You gotta stock up on this kind of stuff so you’ll have it ready when you need most.
Today I’ll be reviewing Banana Boat Soothing After Sun Aloe Gel. Discussing what the product claims to do versus what it actually does and if this product is good to treat the dreaded after burn.
What does the product claim to do?
Banana Boat Soothing After Sun Aloe Gel claims to soothe skin fast with strong moisturizers and the healing power of aloe vera. It also promises that it is not just for sun burn treatment, the solution is versatile, able to be used on minor burns, dry skin, and irritated or chapped skin.
If you are experiencing discomfort from a burn or drying, this product should be a viable treatment option. Obviously do not put on any open wounds, only surface irritations.
Aloe Vera– soothes and cools skin.
Cocoa Butter-to soften damaged skin
Mineral Oil & Vitamin E – work as moisturizers
The product goes on really nicely and isn’t sticky. It does take a bit of rubbing to get the skin to full absorb the formula. I just apply it liberally to the affected area until I feel that “aha” relief moment. If you don’t feel like really working it in because you are in a lot of pain just let it rest on top and wait for it to soak in.
Would I Repurchase?
Absolutely, the price is definitely great on this product and it has been super effective in allowing me to feel little to no discomfort if I get a sunburn on a vacation or just another day stepping outside the house living in Texas. If you are looking for something just to keep around the house in case of a minor burn, this will also work for that. Aloe Vera is a great natural source of skin care and I highly recommend using it and Banana Boat’s Aloe Vera After Sun Gel.
