    I got really bad sun burn 6 months ago in Florida and I used the Aloe & Jojoba Nut Therapy (from the MADE FROM EARTH skincare line). It TOTALLY treated my sunburn…it saved me!!

    Only a small amount is recommended to be applied twice a day and its hypoallergenic so no perfumes or colorants.

    Really decreased the pain of the burn – stopped me from peeling and even left me with a nice color. . .no i use all the time as an “after sun” cream….love it! for anyone who is interested.
