Fan Friday Giveaway: After Sun Cooling Gel


It looks like we’re getting another beautiful weekend here on the East Coast! Unfortunately, last Saturday one of us fell asleep on the beach and didn’t reapply sun protection. This required a little help from our After Sun Cooling Gel!

We’ll announce the winner Monday morning, June 16th, 2014! This contest is open to all of the U.S. and Canada; the winner will be contacted privately via email and will be announced on our Facebook page!

First, check out this week’s Blog Highlights:

Which acne spot treatments are best for your skin?

What we learned from Dad about beauty (in honor of Father’s Day!)


Author: Jill

As a long-time writer, editor, and esthetician, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with Mario Badescu Skin Care for years. I can usually be found reading, knitting, painting, trying new beauty and skin care products, and telling everyone to wear more sunscreen. These days, I’m feeling super grateful for the opportunity to share more Mario with the world! I believe that better skin care changes lives. For more about me, visit my Google+ Page.


  1. Wow I could really use this for my husband he did the exact same thing. Luckily I was able to wake him up before his sunburn got too bad. After Sun Cooling Gel is just what he needs!

  2. I’m running out of my aloe gel, and would love to try some other products for my after-sun skin!

  3. My husband is also bad at this! I’m usually pretty good about applying sunscreen for the both of us but when he’s off on his own he always comes back looking a little red! This would be great to have ready.

  4. I love after sun cooling gel. It’s just what my skin needs after a day out in the sunshine. πŸ™‚

  5. I would love to get this!! My husband and I are planning a short getaway for our wedding anniversary and I have a feeling that my very pale skin would benefit from this. Last time we went to the beach for our anniversary, I ended up with a terrible sunburn. Not too much fun…

  6. I’m about to head out of town on a family vacation in a very sunny location! This would definitely help me out if I enjoy the sun a little bit too much!

  7. I don’t want to go outside because of sunshine~

  8. that sounds so awesome I would love to try it

  9. This product would be perfect after spending long days on the beach! I am such a huge fan of all of your products, they have completely changed my skin! I use the cleanser, toner, eye creams, night creams, serums- everything- every day! The glycolic acid toner helped my sun damage in 6 months- after trying multiple dermatological procedures. Thank you!

  10. I am ALWAYS getting sunburned! I can never seem to reapply at the right times. This would be so great to have on hand to soothe the burn. I’m always looking for a great cooling gel and this seems like the perfect one!

  11. Would love to try this out! I discovered MB products about 6 months ago and can’t live without them now. My skin loves me for this!

  17. This would be perfect for my sister. Ten minutes in the sun and she’s as red as a tomato!

  18. I’ll have this, please!

  19. I would love to try this!

  20. Between the swimming pool and the beach, this would really be helpful for me. I have very fair skin, and even with sunscreen, I still get a little red. All of the Mario Badescu products I have tried have been wonderful, and I am sure this one would be no different.

  21. I have lots of plans to enjoy time outside this summer with my 6 year old daughter and my new baby. We’ll be lathering up with sunscreen but it would be awesome to have a bottle of this on hand just in case. I have very fair skin and have suffered through some really painful sunburns in the past!

  64. I would LOVE to win this! I love all of the other products.

  65. I’ve been using my products daily for less than a week on my cystic acne, and I am seeing AMAZING results.
