I have a review today, but first I wanted to say that this is my 600th post. Yay! Thanks for all of your support.
I was recently sent the Liz Earle Aftersun Gel to try out. I love Liz Earle products, but I wondered how I would have an opportunity to use this. I don't do out in the sun to catch any rays, and I am not a sun worshipper. However, last weekend my whole family had a get together for my Grandads 80th Birthday, and it was hot! Like really hot, and I did catch the sun, just a little on my shoulders and the back on my neck. The following day my boyfriend was out all day in the sun, and caught it on his arms.
What They Say: Our light, rehydrating gel cools, calms and nourishes sun-exposed skin by replacing lost moisture. Premium high-altitude lavender is soothing and cucumber refreshing, while antioxidant natural source vitamin E helps counteract the damaging effects of the sun’s rays. Massage into the skin as often as needed after exposure to the sun. Containing cooling orgainc aloe vera and refreshing cucumber, plus natural source vitamin E to help counteract the damaging effects of the sun’s rays.
My Thoughts: So with the perfect opportunity to try it out, we did so. This stuff is very impressive. It's a clear gel that smells Ahhmazing! It has a very soothing lavender scent, it smells so fresh, and when applied and rubbed in it instantly gives a nice cooling sensation, you can feel it soothing your skin, and it just feels lovely.
My boyfriend found that it kept his sunburn soothed for a good few hours before he put any more on, and it also stopped it from drying out and peeling, it kept the skin well hydrated.. My sunburn wasn't that bad, but I have to add that it does feel so nice, even if you don't have sunburn! The gel just feels lovely as it cools your skin as you rub it in!
Oh, and a quick tip! Keep in in the fridge for even more cooling soothing feeling. It works a treat.
The lovely ladies at Liz Earle also sent me a really nice large tote bag for the beach, which I haven't had a chance to use yet, but it's huge, and really strong canvas. It's lovely!
You can purchase the Liz Earle Aftersun Gel here, or in store. If you're off somewhere hot on holiday, you won't regret it!
