After Burn Review: Banana Boat Aloe Gel

After a long day at the beach you are going to need some backup to take care of what your sunblock didn’t. You are going to need a product that soothes, cools and replenishes your chapped, dry skin. For centuries people have been using the Aloe plant for minor burns and wounds. It has special healing properties that have transcend time and Banana Boat After Sun Gel is made of just that. Before purchasing other aloe vera gels on the market lets see what customers have to say about Banana Boat’s classic 20 year medicine cabinet maker.

What customers say about Banana Boat Aloe Gel?

Sun burns

“I had an old 16oz bottle and started using is as an aftershave to soothe my irritated skin. Amazingly it also made my skin look noticeably better after a couple weeks, so I started applying it to my entire face and forehead.”

“I use this product for skin and hair gel as I have an itchy skin condition on my scalp and all beauty products makes it worse.”

“I use this gel to moisturize my legs every day. I like it, because it does not contain oil and make my legs feel greasy. It also does not feel sticky like pure or almost pure aloe vera. I have sensitive skin and can even use the gel after shaving without irritation. It has a wonderful smell when it’s wet that’s “clean” but not overpowering and wears off after it dries, so it does not clash with perfumes.
