Great product

magical gel!


This all natural gel is magical! I can put it on a sunburn and wake up brown instead of red the next morning. It cools and relives the discomfort. My husband was skeptical until he had an uncomfortable sunburn and now he asks to use it! I stock up every spring and now we use it so much that sometimes I have to order more!



Love it!


I got to try this one in store :) ended up buying a tube. It smoothes on quite nicely and provides a soothing coolness to sun damaged skin.


heals sunburned skin


Anytime I get a little too much sun, if I apply this amazing gel, my skin recovers within days with little or no peeling. Very soothing and non-greasy. I use it every evening on my face during the summer, just to help my skin heal from any extra uv exposure. I haven't found an after sun product anywhere else to compare. And a little bit goes along way





This product is super soothing after a beach day that was a little to long... skin is repaired in no time!



Perfect for a summer day


I love using this in the summer with the strong sun.

The Best Lotion I Have Ever Used


This is the best lotion-like product I have ever used! It is a moisturizing gel that soaks in immediately so I don't feel greasy. I got a terrible sunburn after a weekend trip to the coast and the reviews on this product were overwhelmingly positive. They weren't lying! It made my sunburn feel oh-so-much better. The effects of aloe only last a few minutes, but this worked for hours. I exfoliated and applied this and the peeling stopped. What blew me away is that this gel has been a dream on my acne! The redness is so much better and my facial skin is very soft. I have recommended it to everybody with a sunburn.

Life saver!


I only had samples of- after sun repair but it is truly awesome. I was a bit sun burned during my vacation and I used the- after sun repair, my skin was cooled down the this balm. The balm is light on the skin and not sticky at all. I was also told by a dermalogica consultant you can use the balm before go out or after you get sun burned. A good product to purchase! You should definitely bring it on vacation. I plan on buying a bottle next time

Beyond Expectations


I came across After Sun Repair on a close-out shelf in a store (sadly, I believe this store no longer carries this product) shortly before a trip to Hawaii. I have never had any luck with drugstore "sunburn" creams. I took a chance that the Dermalogica brand might be a bit better. Tho I used sunscreen, I failed to re-apply while snorkeling. My husband's and my back did burn. After using this lotion (careful, it is pretty runny) - NO PEELING. I will search this product out before any vacation in the sun.

Did you discontinue the after sun? And if so is there any other product similar to it because it was my fave and i cant find another one comparable to it.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I apologize. That item has been discontinued. You may like Calm Water Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Can i use this product as a regular moisturizer?


i use it in the summer when my skin is a little more oily as a moisturizer in the evenings. if your skin is dry, i think you would need a moisturizer in addition to this


I have been using it as a daily moisturizer on my face. It doesn't feel greasy and it has helped take the redness from my acne away. My skin feels so soft and hydrated.


Does this product help reduce damage even without you getting a sun burn?: Would it benefit you to use this on your face after any day out at the beach or in the sun?


skin gets damaged from the sun, even if you have no sunburn to show it. so, it definitely wouldn't hurt to use this to hydrate and heal your skin from any uv exposure you did get. I use it in the evening of any day that i've been in the sun all day, sunburn or not (hopefully not)


I was told you can even use the balm any time. - before going out - after a long day out in the sun I would say using it has benefitted my skin


This product is for after sun repair of any kind, not just a sunburn, so yes we recommend you give it a try.
