With the summer here and in full swing, I personally find myself outside with my kids during the days. Now, I am one who will put plenty of sunscreen on my kids before we even walk out the door, but when it comes to myself and my husband, well I tend to overlook the whole sunscreen issue. It is not on purpose, I just get so focused on getting the kids ready and prepared to go out, and the water and snacks stocked in the diaper bag, that by the time that is all done, I just want to head on out the door. So, I can not be too shocked when myself or my husband come in after a long day of being out in the sun, burned. Yes, it is not any fun, and yes, I would think that I would learn my lesson, but I do not, so the next thing to do is head out and find those products that will help soothe our sunburns. Well recently I was sent two amazing products that are both great for summer, for the summer sunburns and also for when you are cooking on the grill and get a burn from cooking. I was sent some of the First Degree cream as well as a bottle of the SunBurnt to review. Now with the First Degree, I have found that this is a great product to keep in the first aid kit, especially in the one we keep in the kitchen or for when we go camping. It is perfect for cooling down a burn from cooking or even from when you get burned from that curling iron, which has happened to me on way too many occasions. I actually have this in my medicine cabinet because of the fact that I have had many cooking burns, and I love how fast it relieves the pain from the burn and cools it right away.
The second product, which is also great for a different type of burn is SunBurnt Gel. Like I had mentioned earlier about my husband and I getting burned quite often over the summer months, then running out to get a treatment for the burns. Well, I have found the SunBurnt Gel to not only be great for using after you get sunburned, but I also like that it does not make you all sticky like other after sun gels can do. I have always used Aloe when treating sunburns from the time I was a kid, and the SunBurnt Gel uses Aloe in their formula. Aside from the fact that it is not sticky like most other after sun treatments, I love that it cools instantly and that it also soothes and hydrates the sunburned skin, which in hand helps reduce the redness and peeling.
Well, to help with your burns this summer season, whether they are from cooking in the kitchen or from the summer sun, the wonderful people from SunBurnt and First Degree would like to send one of my amazing readers the same great pack of products that I was sent!
