Earlier this summer I did a very dumb thing, and went to a football game without wearing any sunscreen. Being a redhead with pale skin, I burn very easily and by that night I was red and blistered. I tried a generic aloe vera gel, taking a cold shower, anything I could think of to ease the pain. Soothe-A-Caine Spray Gel was the only thing I found that helped to ease the pain, and it was the easiest and least messy to apply product I tried as well. The one catch is that you can only apply it up to 4 times a day, unlike other products where you can use as much as you want. Even though it helped to elevate most of the pain, it was hard to resist putting on more! I would definetly reccomend that everyone puts on sunscreen before going outside- but if you forget, then this is the product for you.
