I was sitting out watching my neice swim in a pool and I hadn't realized that my shoulders and face had got red. I had remembered reading this recipe and thought to give it a try. First of all, I am skin sensitive and absolutely nothing likes my skin!!! Saying that, I didn't care for it on my face as it left a gritty texture to it and it had a tightening effect on the face. I ended up washing it off and using some unscented face cream and one drop of Tea Tree oil and all the tightness in my face eased up almost immediately. I applied the milk/baking soda mixture to the shoulders and the next day they were still a little tight. I think I will stick to my cream and Tea Tree oil. Sorry!

Thank you - I would highly recommend this, it provided quick relief versus using an aloe product. Feels silky smooth & provided immediate cooling.

Just in the nick of time. My daughter went to the beach Sunday, fell asleep in the sun and completely fried her back. This was a great help. Thank you!
