I just love it when products work as advertised.
My post-Hawaii tan hasn’t shown any signs of peeling, and I think Clinique deserves most of the credit.
I’ve been applying their After Sun Rescue Balm with Aloe ($20) once a day since getting back home on Monday.
The stuff’s not just your run ‘o the mill lotion. It’s designed to soothe and repair skin exposed to the sun, thereby minimizing peeling while moisturizing and cooling at the same time.
Even though I was good about using sunscreen on my trip, my skin still turned extra brown, and I was bracing myself for it to peel, particularly on my shoulders and arms.
Despite my best efforts and diligence after a trip to someplace sunny, I usually experience at least a little peeling.
But cooling Clinique After Sun Rescue Balm in place of my regular post-shower moisturizer seems to have helped.
It has a subtle mint fragrance, absorbs fast and doesn’t leave a greasy film.
And the soothing cooling sensation from rubbing it in sure feels nice after a hot day in the sun. That alone *almost* makes it worth the $20 price.

Cat bathing 101
Thanks for your tips on cat cleaning! I still haven’t given Tabs his bath, but now I’m armed with knowledge, ha!
He still smells of Eau De Musky Cat Butt, but it has faded somewhat since Monday. If he’s still stinky this weekend, I’ll give him his bath. I’m thinking of using this stuff I found at Petsmart. It comes in a Vanilla Bean scent.
Do you have plans for the weekend? Friday, here we come!
