For some of you in other parts of the country and the world, it may feel like fall has arrived. But here in Southern California, we've been experiencing an extreme heat wave with temperatures 20 to 25 degrees above normal. In my corner of Los Angeles, we had multiple days well over 100 degrees this past week!
Our family is actually really good about applying and re-applying sunscreen, which is important because we spend countless hours outdoors due to the boys' sports. But inevitably, we all end up getting too much sun at some point.
Which is why I'm so glad I discovered Burt's Bees Aloe & Linden Flower After Sun Soother:
Unlike every other aloe product I've tried for sunburn, this stuff really works. As I've mentioned before, I'm quite fair and redden and burn incredibly quickly. When I apply Burt's Bees After Sun Soother, the redness is almost always completely gone the next day, and if it's not totally gone, it's at least gone down significantly. Perhaps most importantly, any pain associated with the overexposure to the sun is always gone.
The After Sun Soother works well on my kids too, although they don't seem to respond to it quite as well as I do. But at least I feel ok about using it on them because it's 99.5% natural and is free of parabens, sulfates, and other possibly harmful ingredients. (And honestly, I'd use it on myself even if it weren't so natural because it's so effective!)
Burt's Bees Aloe & Linden Flower After Sun Soother is $10.66 at Amazon and $9.99 at Drugstore.com.
