This is an excellent after-sun lotion. Soothes any burning and aids in the transition from redness to tan. In my experience, using this also helps extend the life of your tan.

I can't recall exactly how much I paid for this, but I want to say it was less than 5 dollars at WalMart. The packaging is durable, I have never had any problems with it, and you get 20.5 fluid ounces of product.

The formulation of this lotion is perfect... not too thick, but not too thin or watery. It's just right. The scent... to be honest, to me, at first it smells sort of like a citrus household cleaning product. But as I'm applying it it smells more like an orange creamsicle... not overpowering or unpleasant. It instantly absorbs into the skin and does not leave a greasy feeling whatsoever.

In addition to aloe, this product contains other good-for-you ingredients, such as Vitamins C, A, E, B6, & D... tea tree oil, seeweed, golden seal, & honey extracts, etc. Best of all, Ocean Potion does not test on animals.

Took this on our August beach vacation. It was a big hit compared to the aloe gel we typically use for sunburns. It's lightly scented so both men & women can use it. Absorbs quickly into the skin and moisturizes well after a day in the sun. No sticky feeling like the aloe gel leaves behind.

From the fair skinned to the darker toned complexions, we all had great results. No one had a severe sunburn but we were definitely a bit red. This lotion transformed that red into a nice tan practically overnight (ok, probably 2 nights). It also eased the pain on my son's sun burned feet much better than the aloe gel. It eliminated peeling skin and sunburn pain.

Great lotion, works as advertised and excellent price. A definite repurchase for our family. Highly recommended.

This is absolutely the best drugstore lotion I have found for the Summer! Lightweight, yet so moisturizing. The scent is an orange/cream mix, which I personally love. I have used this after the beach and it seriously does maintain your tan as well as heal sunburn. I have never once peeled with this lotion, it just turned into a lovely tan. I highly recommend this lotion- such a steal!

I bought this lotion because it claims to extend tan and since I'm heading to the beach in a couple of weeks, I figured I would take this along. I've been using it nightly as my daily moisturizer and so far I love it! I love the smell, which others describe as an orange dreamsicle, but to me it smells like Fruity Pebbles cereal. Either way, the scent is nice. Also, this lotion doesn't leave a greasy feel and I love that it is packaged in a pump dispenser.

It helps me a lot with my sunburn on my face. It's light weight and absorb fast. It's also a good moisturizer for everyday use.
I will definitely buy this lotion again. Highly recommended !

I FINALLY have found a lightweight lotion that I don't "react" to that smells great!!


This smells like Orange Creamsicle and its sorta strong, but I adore the smell so its not an issue with me. I also love that this is made with canola oil and sunflower seed oil (two of the first three ingredients) as opposed to mineral oil.


It soaks in nicely, although I need to reapply if I use this on my hands. Its the first body lotion that I can use that doesn't feel goopy and awful, especially in summer!


Love it and plan to repurchase.

OK, so I had to purchase this lotion since I heard that it smells like a creamsicle (YUM!). First off, the scent is great, it doesn't exactly stay orangey scented though, kinda mellows out right away to a more creamy sweet beachy scent which is lovely, would wear the scent as a perfume if there was one seriously. I could feel the moisturizing properties immediately upon application. This is my favorite part though...it is really cooling feeling. I live in Phoenix, AZ and its gets hellishly hot here in the summer, I mean literally feels like you are burning instantly upon walking into the sun. Not good. But this really cools you down and the sensation lasts for a little while too, which is nice. OK, so count me in as another rave reviewer of this dirt cheap fun find!

I was using the glow version of this lotion and love it, but needed a smaller bottle to take on vacation and found this in a airline friendly 4 oz size. Its perfect. Everything is the same except the 'glow' part. I've gotten used to the creamscicle scent and while I wasn't crazy about it at first, I grown to like it, but it fades almost immediately anyway so its not an issue. The consistency is super light and absorbs within 2 minutes so its perfect for summer. Leaves no sticky anything behind, and is surprisingly moisturizing. My legs start to get itchy and prickly by the end of the day with the majority of lotions, but not with this. Even now that its getting colder my skin feels soft and moisturized all day. Super cheap and readily available almost anywhere. Now that they've discontinue my old favorite (Lubriderm Advanced Triple Smoothing), this is my new favorite drugstore lotion.

I've been using this lotion for about 4 years now and it's my HG summer moisturizer! I love the fact that aloe is in the top 5 ingredients, unlike a lot of other "aloe moisturizers" where aloe is at the bottom of the ingredient list. The price is absolutely unbeatable, especially since I go through at least one bottle a summer. My only complaint is that the pump sometimes leaves a bit at the bottom of the bottle, but for the quality and price you just can't beat it. I love how it doesn't leave me sticky or greasy after I put it on. I use this instead of aloe gel (with or without lidocaine) at night when I have a sunburn because it doesn't mess up my sheets like the gel does. It sinks in a lot quicker and smells so much better. I'll keep buying this every time I run out! Love tis stuff!

This is for moisturizing aloe lotion with tea tree oil & vitamins A.C.&E. My hubby picked this up on vacation, it was a steal as far as after sun lotions go. I love the smell, very summer memory inducing. The ingredient list is good except if parabens are an issue for you probably should avoid. It made my legs nice and soft, yes, I like it.
