Are you the misinformed-type who thinks a “little” sunburn builds a base tan? Soothe your peeling skin with C.O. Bigelow Lotio Mentholus No. 002 ($25), a natural topical analgesic of .1% camphor, suspended in lemon, lavender, peppermint and rosemary oil, designed to pamper your epidermis without leaving you smelling like a high school locker room.

Purported to be America’s oldest apothecary, C.O. Bigelow has provided salves and solutions to presidents and the penny masses alike since 1838. And their recent addition isn’t just for sunny climes. Those facing dry winter air on the ski slopes or pre-existing skin conditions will also benefit from adding an 8oz bottle to their medicine cabinet. The proprietary blend is fragrance, hydrocortisone and steroid-free, only picking up a subtle scent from the aforementioned natural oils. It’s still no cure for the Seven-Year Itch.
