Skin Saviour

I got burnt chatting to my friend last week. Now normally I'm really careful but you know how it goes and it's a simple equation...

Friend you haven't seen for a while + lots of chatting + sunshine = SUN BURN!

I wasn't being purposely irresponsible as the last thing I wanted was a half burnt, half white back and pain for a week but these things happen. Anyways, in my quest to try and reduce the redness and the heat emanating from my back and shoulders, I came across Malibu's Aloe Vera Gel and within a couple of days it had taken the heat away completely.

Because it's a gel it has a great cooling effect and even better when you leave it in the fridge. It claims to work against long term UV skin damage which is good news for me after my little mishap last week and restores the natural moisture of the skin. Although my back is now peeling (the skin did need to come off after being so badly burnt) I believe the gel lives up to its claim as my arms are really moisturised now even though they got a little bit burnt too.

The thing that impressed me the most about this product was the way that it didn't leave you feeling sticky or clammy like some other after sun products I've tried. It was absorbed my my skin very quickly and didn't leave any marks on my clothes and didn't leave a residue on the surface of my skin. the only time I noticed it again after that was in  the shower when you remember it was ever there.

I'd recommend it to anyone, whether you've been a wally like me or you just want to moisturise your skin after you've caught a few rays. I paid £3.99 in Superdrug so it's really affordable too. There is absolutely no excuse to not have this product in your bathroom.
