It has been very hot here in my place and to hit pools and beaches to cool down is just one of the best things to enjoy the weather. So after hours of swimming and basking under the sun, I feel the need for a lotion or cream to calm my warm and irritated skin. Banana Boat Aloe After Sun Lotion comes to rescue.

My Experience with Banana Boat Aloe After Sun Lotion:
Banana Boat Aloe After Sun Lotion is packaged in a big, transparent plastic bottle with green pump on top. Too bad that the pump just don’t work! I don’t know if this happens for all Banana Boat bottles. I don’t think so. At first, I was thinking that the lotion may be too thick in consistency making it harder to dispense. It looks curdly and does not run. But despite the thickness, it is still easy to spread unto skin. 😀
Anyways, my bottle has 473ml of product in it, which for me is a family size bottle already. It is a bit bulky to bring on a vacation or on a travel unless your whole family is going to use it. In my case, I transfer a few to a small bottle just enough for the day.
The lotion itself is white in color and it hasa light, airy, herbal fresh scent which is my favorite during summers. It smells similar to Vaseline Aloe Lotion which most of us are familiar to.It is very easy to apply and to blend on skin. It is absorbed fast and is very lightweight too.I usually use it after under-the-sun activities and it was able to relieve skin irritation after sun exposure. It helped cool my warm skin upon application really well. Good job!
Banana Boat Aloe After Sun Lotion- What I like:
- -light, nature, herbal fresh scent. It is apt for summers.
- -spreads easily and absorbs fast.
- -lightweight, does not feel sticky or greasy.
- -helps my alleviate sun burn pains and redness.
- -cools my warm skin.
- -kept skin moisturized, soft and smooth.
- -affordable for $8 per big bottle.
Banana Boat Aloe After Sun Lotion- What I Don’t like:
- -scent stays for 2-3 hours only.
- -has mineral oil and parabens.
I believe in using After Sun lotions after hours of enjoying the sun. The aloe vera components of these kinds of lotions help and assist repair on skin after sun exposure. It helps rehydrate the skin and protect it from further damage. In my opinion, After Sun lotions can be used on a daily basis even if you are not directly exposed to the sun as it can give this cool feeling on skin during hot weather. I will keep on looking for a good after sun lotion, one that does not have mineral oil and parabens in it.
