Most Helpful Positive Review This is black magic
This stuff is actual black magic. I get sunburned a lot, because I'm paler than pale and I do not tan. As a life-long aloe user (in gel, lotion, and pure from-the-plant forms), I swear this works better than anything else. It can't be proven, but I slathered this stuff on after a bad paddleboarding sunburn and I think it might have turned my sunburn kind of tan? Instead of staying lobster red for days, I looked like a normal person who had seen sun. But like I said, it can't be proven. Anyway, this stuff is magical and worth ordering because it's hard to find unless you live near a beach (I don't). And it smells fantastic!
Most Helpful Critical Review Depends on severity of sunburn for effectiveness
I used this product after using the sun bum spf 15 sunscreen on the beach for 2 days. My boyfriend and I got severely burned, almost to the point of sun poisoning. This was one of the only lotions they had available on the island, so I figured it was good. It felt good, and smelled good. But, after applying generously for 2 days straight, our sunburns did not look or feel much better. The lotion provided instant relief to the burning sensation, but it did not last long or help minimize the sunburn. I guess if you're not burned too servery, this would be ideal to use, but if you are burned bad, I suggest using a lotion that contains more Aloe.

Hydrating and moisturizing. A light coconut scent .
Edie from Jacksonville, FL
Great product. Love using after spending days at the beach. Prevents me from further sun after effects like peeling, the sunburn burn, etc. I believe it maintains my tan too. Smell is mild—don't mistake it for being bad. Just doesn't smell very "fragrancey" but it does smell decent.
Smells great, not greasy!
Dawn from Ohio
This product smells like "Summer in Heaven".
Light smelling and the smell doesn't last a long time. This isn't thick, not greasy, absorbs quickly. I go fishing a lot and burn easily bcz I'm fair skinned and blonde. This works well! I'm on my third bottle and I got one for my 24 yr old dau and she loves it too. Smart purchase!
Nicole from Florida
The smell is delicious and is perfect for sun kissed skin! It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin soft and smelling so good!
Great for Daily Use
DSZoologist from Minnesota
This is the only lotion I will use after I shave. All other lotions have made my legs itchy, but this one doesn't! I've tried other aloe based lotions, and they don't seem to work as well as this one. It smells like I'm putting on sunscreen, but that doesn't particularly bother me.
Literally the best!
Lindsay from Columbus, Ohio
I'm super fair and also super sensitive to products. This entire line works for me. This is the best thing ever when you get out of the shower from washing off sun screen. It makes my skin feel so much better and it a little takes the heat out of any redness. Could not recommend more.
Smells so good
SMH29 from MN
Smells so good and goes on nicely.
I would by this product again
Louise from Florida
it gives good moisturizing to the skin as well as cooling, definitely recommend using this product after being out in the sun to prevent drying
Kae from Pennsylvania
I went to the beach and got extremely burnt. After the shower I used this and it cooled down my skin dramatically. I have to be careful with aloe products because for some reason my skin reacts badly with them, but I had no problems with this after sun. It's a good price and more liquidy so I could see myself having it for a long time.
Even my husband bought it...
Gina from Prince George, VA
I use this on myself and my kids after after dip in the pool or playtime in the yard. It feels so good that even my husband, who hates lotions and creams, bought himself some. Oh, and of course it smells amazing and like summer in a bottle.
Super Great for Sunburn

This really helped to calm down a sunburn I got, which ended up peeling, but left a nice tan after using this as well.
I would buy this product again

Love this after sun lotion..smells like summer & absorbs quickly
Hayley from Dallas, TX
I unfortunately had a gnarly sunburn all over my chest and stomach. (Quarantined too long inside). I applied this about two times after a nice cool shower. I was so worried I would wake up with a glowing lobster look. And to my amaze, the sunburn literally turned into a tan over night. I am shocked how great this worked and how hydrated my skin felt afterwards(not itchy or bothered).
Burn to Tan
alri23 from SC
This paired with 99% aloe vera gel helps turn my sun burns into a tan instead of a peely gross mess. I prefer this over any type of sun burn gel because the gel can be sticky and leave a residue, whereas pairing this with aloe vera gel leaves the skin super moisturized when it needs it most for healing.

Bottle came with a good portion missing.
Summer must have
Selena from Texas
I have purchased this product for the last 3 summers and will continue to do so. First off, it smells amazing! The lotion does have a slight cooling affect but if you are severely sunburnt, I'd suggest regular aloe vera gel. I like to use this immediately after I have been laying out/tanning once I wash off my tanning lotion. It works best at keeping your tan/preventing peeling if you use it directly after tanning. Once you start peeling this product won't do much for you except slightly cool your skin!
Francesca from Florida
It doesn't do much that a normal lotion wouldn't do. It smells like bananas, and it's not too sticky at all, but doesn't provide the cooling sensation i was hoping for after a day in the same
Love love love this lotion!!!!!!!!
Dawn from Tacoma WA
Great after a shower, it smells amazing and helps my tan last longer. I love this product!!!
Ashleysmashley from California
This is the I my product I have ever used that prevented me from peeling / actually works like it says it does on sunburns.
With the dry weather and hand sanitizer at work my hands have been cracking. I have been applying this at night to help. And it works :)
The only down side is the smell kinda reminds me of play doh. But whatever it works that's all that matters
Buy it now!
Margie from Pennsylvania
This lotion is aaaahhhhmazing! no I didn't get a free sample, no I'm not being paid to review this. My tan has lasted SO much longer with this lotion than anything I've ever used. I've not peeled at all this entire summer and I'm in my pool daily and we vacation in Florida. I've gotten sunburned twice and this soothes it so good and helps keep my skin soft and supple. I absolutely LOVE this product!!
Love the smell, and works so well!
Whitney from Virginia
I'm a redhead, and no matter what SPF I use, I always get dry, red sunburns. I tried this stuff once, and I've never looked back. I use it every time I come home from the pool, lake, beach, or even yard work. It actually, (and I dont know how) prevents the sting of the sunburn. It's insane. Yes, my redness is there, but i have NO sting. Nothing. My skin isn't dry, and It feels like a body cream. Obsessed.
Not just for after sun
Mari from Madison, WI
I have extremely sensitive skin so I stick to products with more natural ingredients. I find aloe products difficult because they leave my skin sticky or they don't absorb quickly. The Maui babe after sun was my go to for quite some time until I found this one. I still prefer it for my body, but I honestly have used this lotion as my daily face moisturizer for over a year. It's similar to a gel moisturizer, but way way cheaper. It doesn't clog my pores and leaves my skin hydrated and feeling very light. It's super soothing and has helped both my acne and lessen the look of my scars. I'd highly recommend using this product as a face moisturizer if you have super sensitive skin! Plus it's cheap and lasts forever!
Helped with severe sunburn
Plove from South Bend, IN
I like how this sinks into the skin quickly. Smells great and works like it says. I got a severe sunburn, and was doing ACV treatments morning and night followed up with coconut oil. However, during the day my skin still was tight and burned, this stuff was a lifesaver I could keep in my purse/car/desk and reapply as needed. My sunburn is gone and no peeling!
Will buy again
Linda from CA
It soon soothing and smee good
I would buy it again
Mary from Fort Worth
I liked the product. It has a spray version that's not as good as the lotion. I would buy it again.
