Get a sun-kissed glow without exposing your skin to the sun's damaging rays. Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion incorporates a self-adjusting color formula that allows you to control the shade of your tan. Want a deeper tan? Just apply more tinted lotion to get a sunless, streak-free tan. Formulation is oil free and enriched with aloe vera and vitamin E.
Apply to clean skin. Use sparingly around the hairline, ankles, knees, and elbows. Wash hands with soap and water immediately after use to avoid staining your hands. Avoid immediate contact with clothing. Color will develop in 2-3 hours and will last several days. Reapply to deepen or maintain color. For best results, wait at least 3 hours between each application. Once you achieve your desired level of tan, reapply 1-2 times a week to maintain your color.

Precautions: This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn. For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, lips and mucous membranes. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Discontinue use if irritation or rash appears. Keep out of reach of children.

Comments about Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion:

I used it after I showered and in the morning I was a shade darker! It has since faded but I really like it. You just have to apply it about 1-2 times a week. Other than that, it's great!

    Comments about Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion:

    I really like this self tanner. I have tried numerous brands, expensive and cheap, and this one works just as well or better than more expensive brands. The color is more natural and less orangey. I can use it on my face and it does not make my skin feel oily or clog my pores. The color develops overnight, but it does have a guide so you immediately look a little bit darker. I am pretty pale so I started with the light, but I wanted a darker tan so I went with the dark shade and I like that better. It smells nice at first, but like all self tanners, it has that self tanner smell as it develops, but it's not bad. I have yet to find one that doesn't, though, so that's not really a big deal to me. The only issue I have is getting my back, which I can't reach, so I have to have my husband do that for me. The color is even and I haven't had problems with streaking. Overall, It's easy to apply. I usually reapply this every couple of days, I haven't tested how long it will last without getting patchy... I just want to keep the same level of tan throughout the week. Would definitely purchase again.

        Comments about Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion:

        I'm an avid fake tanner. I've been doing it for years. I sometimes go to a salon and get sprayed. I also have my favorite brands at home I like to use, as well. I've heard about this one and at this price, I decided to try it out. I bought the deep dark shade and not knowing how dark it would be, I tested it out on my stomach first. I always apply at night, go to sleep and awake to a tan. I woke up and there was literally no difference and usually my stomach tends to be the darkest. So I put another coat on before heading into work. I kept checking it throughout the day and NO DIFFERENCE. The instructions say color should develop within 2-3 hours. I've never encountered a sunless tanner that does nothing to my skin.

          Comments about Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion:

          To use, shower and lightly exfoliate body, do not moisturizer after shower, apply only when skin has dried completely. You don't need a ton, as much as if you were thoroughly applying lotion all over your body and rubbing it in.
          Shins lower legs n knees first rubbing what's left on hands on tops of feet. I use a tissue and make sure excess lotion is wiped off or blended all around dry areas, heels, ankles, knees to prevent that weird darkening. Then thighs and butt stomach lower back. At this point I stop and wash all the lotion off my hands and fingers with cold water and exfoliating soap so my palms don't dye. Being careful not to drip water anywhere on my body, I don't want streaks.
          When hands are dry, I do lower arms ending at wrists, not hands or fingers. Then upper arms careful to carry lotion under arm down side of upper body. Tissue wipe elbows to prevent weird darkening. Then lotion chest breast shoulder area front and back and neck, mid then upper back. A trick for reaching higher on your back is to place lotion on back of hand and fingers and wipe into hard to reach areas. Remember it's like moisturizing not slather painting. Rub lotion into skin evenly till it disappear then done.
          Wash hands again thoroughly with exfoliating soap and cold water being careful not to drip water on yourself or you'll streak.
          The last step is to use the little bit of tanning lotion left around the bottles tube opening on my inner wrist and to wipe it around my inner wrists like people do with perfume just to cover any areas I might have washed away lotion when washing my hands. Don't use your clean fingers or you will dye them.Hivevit a few hours to show.
          You will look beautiful and naturally lightly tan!

            I've used many different kinds of self-tanners and this is the one I keep buying. I think it works better than more expensive brands. I'm very fair skinned but I buy the "Deep Dark Color" version. What I like most about it is that it works after just 1 application so if your legs are super white but you realize you'll be wearing shorts the following day, slap some of this on and you'll be golden. Comes out dark so it's easy to see where you rubbed it in. My husband complains it stinks but what self-tanner doesn't?

                I've used this for over a week. I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt after my first application was sketchy. I left it on 20 minutes then rinsed. I felt like I was slathered in honey. This is super sticky to sit still for 20 minutes. Rinsing off was slimey, and now I'm a cute little pumpkin but this was NOT the look I was going for. Not worth the price I paid. I literally canceled my hair appointment because it's embarrassing to go out this orange! I'm paper white Irish. I needed a tan, this didn't work for me.

                      Absorbs quickly, no streaking, with natural color. Best part is no crazy-strong odor! Just a slight smell while developing, but the most subtle of every tanning product I've tried (a lot!). Faded evenly, with no weird patches.
