I haven't used this on any sun burns yet but I have used it on my eczema and wow! It's very soothing and sinks in fast so I can layer on the Pipette eczema lotion for extra moisture and soothing. Love this stuff! I'm also excited to try this on my face since I have rosacea for some more soothing properties there!
Definitely get it!
I'm not really sure why this product is so highly rated and reviewed - I love Pipette as a brand and have personally used the Baby Shampoo & Wash almost every day for years and have loved their other lotions in the past. I appreciate the gentle formulations and inclusion of squalane. I purchased the After Sun Gel with high hopes of using it on my face/body in a daily sense but found it to be extremely drying - to the point where my skin is tight and uncomfortable after use. Tighter & dryer than just my normal, cleansed, unmoisturized skin. It also pills like crazy after mostly drying down, even when used alone and not in conjunction with other products, and has the weirdest texture (gloopy/runny/wet and looks kind of separated.) I'm almost all the way through my tube (hate wasting products) and have played with applying it in different ways, always with the same results. Thought maybe I received a bad batch - but purchased directly through this website and not a third-party seller. Maybe I'm using this gel incorrectly by applying it daily to unburnt, adult skin but their description does state "...skincare for the whole family". I honestly can't imagine applying this gel to a sunburn if it's this drying on normal skin. As a positive it does smell really nice (a little like apples) and the packaging is beautiful as always.

soothes without feeling sticky, light on the skin.

Can't wait to try this product since summer is here! Given my obsession with their other products I'm sure this will be the same!

Nice product. Doesn't leave a noticeable residue after applied. I do have to be careful when opening the tube, if it's tilted down then a bunch of products comes pouring out right when the top is opened. Otherwise I love that it's odorless.

After a long day out in the sun, this product helps to calm and hydrate my skin

Very easy to rub in and has a bit of a soothing cooling effect, but not necessarily moisturizing. Coupled with a good lotion it was nice for a bit of sunburn.

Watery but works good, has a nice cooling sensation and keeps the sun burn at bay

Creamy when rubbing it in but absorbs in seconds, when I got burnt a minth ago it was the best. I kept it in the fridge and it was so soothing but it also extends any color you've gotten; its been a month and I'm still fading, the tan is longer lasting when using the gel.

After spending time outside in the sun, I always like to refresh with a nice, cold drink--and this gel is that for my skin! It feels so cool and absorbs quickly while leaving my skin soft and hydrated. I prefer richer lotions in colder/dryer weather, but this one is perfect for warm weather. It's one I'll be sure to keep on hand!

Have not used yet but I truly enjoy Pipette and this will be a great item to have for our beach days. We'll definitely be prepared with it!

I bought this to use after I get a little too much sun/sunburn and it really reduces redness! I have continued using it everyday and I typically have a more red complexion, I'm not sure if it's rosacea or what, but my skin tone looks much better! My plan is to keep it in my daily skincare routine.

I bought it with my son in mind. He's a toddler with eczema and I love using this if he has hot spots or first thing in the morning when his body needs extra moisture. I'll be reordering soon!

Loved it! It sinks right in like a light serum. Instead of lotion, I've been reaching for this gel at night after showering during this brutal heat wave to help my skin stay hydrated. I can also see myself use it in the colder moths before thicker lotions to layer in the moisture.

This is the best sun gel I have ever tried! It soaks in so quickly and instantly makes my skin feel smoother and softer.
