Default Does anyone else use Noxzema to relieve a sunburn?

It's something my Mom used to do when I was little and I continued to do through the years. It helps remove the heat, it really works well. I put the plain Noxzema on my skin thats hot and sore when I go to bed. By the next morning the heat and tenderness is greatly reduced. Does anyone else do this?
I have been doing it quite a bit lately since I moved to AZ and bought a Supercharged Miata as my Daily Driver, did I mention I'm Irish and German. Yes thats right, plenty of Noxzema has been used in this house, even using sunscreen.

Never tried Noxcema. But I will recommend After Sun Aloe Vera lotion. It cools down your sunburned skin IMMEDIATELY and keeps it from blistering. Very COOL stuff.

Udder cream

Not sure the brand name I bought but it's got black and white splotches like a Holstein cow on the label.

Yes, I've used Noxzema to help relieve sunburn pain. It does work very well.

I've used it for years for that. It really feels good if you put it in the fridge and get it cold before you apply it.

Nope. I just use sunblock and thank God for my dark, O.E.M. pigmentation.

Go tanning and you won't have to worry about it.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one

I have actually also used the Aloe Vera lotion, fresh aloe from a plant and the Udder cream. They all work quite well too, but the Udder Cream is a little pungent smelling for me.

It's funny, I hadn't used Noxzema for some time, plus I quit smoking last year so I can now smell again, well point being I used it again last month for the first time in years and just opening the jar and BAM...........it took me back 30 years. Memories long forgotten washed over me, it's weird the way smells more than anything else do that with old memories, especially old girlfriends perfumes too. Some woman will walk past wearing it and I'm Overwhelmed by old memories out of nowhere...........weird. Yet strangely enjoyable.

if it last more than a day i just follow up with regular lotion for the peeling. But the vinegar takes the sting right out immediately.
