Cool, Soothe and Rehydrate Skin with Liz Earle Sun Shade.

After a wonderful day at the beach this week, I was left with a bit of a burn on the back of my shoulders and neck. I thought I was protected, but I think the salt water quickly washed away my sunscreen where I needed it most (the waves were HUGE!).

That night, I looked quickly to see what I had to help soothe my burn that was heating up - and fast.  I grabbed Sun Shade Botanical Aftersun Gel from Liz Earle and her Naturally Active Skincare line.


When you see the name Sun shade, I am sure you think of a sunblock, right? Well, in this case Sun Shade is actually a product to bring your skin the shade with it's cooling botanical ingredients - to help skin cool down after a bit of too much sun.

This gel not only cools and calms the heat, as it melts over the skin, it is absorbed. You are never left with sticky or greasy residue. Made with organic aloe vera, cucumber, lavender and natural Vitamin E, featuring a cool menthol scent, I only needed one application to help soothe my skin - so I could sleep free of sunburn pain.

Ban the Bumps with Bikini Zone.

It's ugly - you know, the bikini, um - area. You all know what I mean. The prepping and grooming that is followed by the red bumps that hurt, then itch as they slowly fade away - to only need more grooming. It is suffering at it's worst. I swear.

If you ever wondered what caused the bikini zone bumps, it is most likely those pesky ingrown hairs causing the irritation. You see, these bumps pop up when a hair curls back into the skin instead of growing straight out. Sometimes you might see some pimple-like blemishes created by irritation - and these babies itch. No wonder it is painful with the razor burn and irritation.

Enter Bikini Zone Medicated Creme. If you haven't tried this yet, you must. It is the ultimate "bump ban-er" and works like a charm.


First, Bikini Zone contains an analgesic to soothe away pain and irritation. It improves healing by speeding along new skin cells to replace the scraped ones, eliminating redness and razor burn. Lastly, it dries out the small, acne-like blemishes and exfoliates the skin to help prevent hair from curling back into the skin to form an ingrown hair bump. With Bikini Zone, your skin will look and feel better - and the suffering will stop.

You can grab yourself a tube at stores like CVS, Walgreens or Walmart - or you can enter my contest right here and starting "Banning Your Bumps" as I have 5 Bikini Zone tubes to give away! Whoo Hoo!

The contest will run through next Sunday night at 11:55 PM EST. Only one entry per person and the contest is only open to those residents of the continental United States.
