Banana Boat – Aloe Vera Gel Review
Today I would be reviewing an after-sun exposure product from Banana Boat – Aloe Vera Gel.
PRICE: 5.50 $ SGD for 90ml(3Oz). Available at all drugstores or online at Amazon.com
COMPANY’S CLAIM ON THE PRODUCT:
This gel gives a cooling and soothing sun relief to your sun-drenched skin needs. Specially formulated with pure aloe vera extract, this soothing gel replenishes moisture and softens your skin to help prevent it from peeling.
MY FEEDBACK ON THE PRODUCT:
The product comes in a plastic tube with twist pen cap and also in a bottle depending on the size you take. I always prefer the tube as it is travel friendly and easy to carry anywhere (specially airports where 100 ml is an issue in checkin baggage). The product is light green in color and with transparent gel like consistency. It has a mild citrus like fragrance which can be an issue for people who want to use fragrance free products. But the fragrance liners only for sometime post application. It gives a refreshing sensation on the skin and is suitable for all skin types and can be used everyday post sun exposure. It effectively treats the skin post any sun exposed sports activity or travels by giving a soothing effect. Even after applying generously on the skin, it gets absorbed within minutes leaving the skin soft and supple.
After my previous trips to Ladakh, Phuket and Indonesia I had a lot of skin peeling post sun tan. But on this last trip to Bali, I made sure to apply this everyday and I did not have any peeling issues ( even after spending half a month in scorching sun). So much so that I continue using it on every evening instead of my moisturizer to keep my skin soft and rejuvenated after a day’s sun-exposure. At times I also use it before putting on my BB creams and CC creams in mornings as my skin is instantly moisturized after it.
I would definitely recommend this to everyone planning trips out in the sun.
- Soothing and refreshing.
- Contains Aloe Vera and Glycerin to keep skin supple.
- Mild fragrance which does not linger on for long.
- Decently priced.
- Protects from sun burns, itching and peeling issues.
- Does not cause any breakouts or irritations.
- I can only think of the fragrance could be downside for some.
