In brief: Use Aloe directly

From the plant. Most lotions have too low an aloe % to really aid in skin healing.

In brief: Mild sunburn

Products with aloe are generally safe and can provide some mild relief from a mild sunburn.
Severe sunburns however, can predispose a person to bacterial skin infections which are important to prevent, and often an antibiotic cream may be required. Best wishes.

If it actually has aloe in it can soothe your pain.
