Comments about Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion:

I am relatively pale, with olive undertones. If I spend enough time in the sun, and burn a few times,I get a nice tan. But that's happened about 3 times in 26 years, so this year, I finally broke down and admitted that I would probably remain white, as usual, unless I helped my tan along. I smelled a few other tanning lotions at ulta (one smelled like Worcestershire sauce, and another made me gag), but this smelled ok! It seemed like a nice place to start so I got it... And I love it! The smell is distinctive... It doesn't really bother me but it does linger for awhile. It's nice and even, and easy to apply. I don't find that I get orange hands BC I wash then right away. I find that it's best to apply in the morning after a shower, let it dry for about five minutes, then let it work its magic all day. I think this is why it doesn't rub off on my sheets at night. Love this stuff and I'm actually looking forward to shorts season!

      Comments about Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion:

      I usually buy more expensive skincare brands, but after a friend had told me how much she loved this product, I thought why not? I'm willing to pay for a good product, but I also love a bargain! The first time I used it, I found the lotion was super thick and somewhat sticky when dry. The color the next day was super streaky and uneven. I figured maybe I didn't take my time with it, so I tried it out again and got similar results. The spray version of this for LIGHT skin tones is a nice option for some gradual color, but this lotion was just not my cup of tea!

        Comments about Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion:

        The only reason that I didn't give my holy grail tanner five stars is because my family says it smells like Chinese food when I put it on. Otherwise, I love everything about this! I'm a fairly pale person with olive undertones and the deep & dark is my perfect shade. Since I love a deep tan I use it twice weekly in the winter and in the summer if my natural tan needs a pick me up I put this over it and it evens everything out and just adds an extra punch to my tan! To prevent the lotion from clinging to ankles, elbows, hands, etc I always put a thin layer of body (Jojoba) oil or a body butter over those areas before I apply and I never have a problem with patches! After trying high end sprays, mouses, lotions, towelettes, I can say without a doubt this is the best one I've come across, AND IT IS INEXPENSIVE! :)

        Comments about Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion:

        I've used a ton of sunless tanners over the years-first it was Jergens Natural Glow, then Neutrogena tanning mist, then a natural/hemp lotion from Sally's Beauty Supply. Each one was better than the last, but when I ran out of the Sally's lotion I couldn't find it in store, so I went looking for a new lotion. I found this and the L'Oreal Sublime Bronze lotion, and settled for this because it was a few dollars cheaper. I am GLAD I did! The lotion is slightly tinted to begin with, so I instantly saw a bit of a glow, and after a few hours I could really see a difference in my color. The next day, I reapplied (I still saw a nice tan from the day before, but I wanted a deeper color) and have only had to use it every other day to maintain. Great quality for the price, and definitely the best tanning lotion I've used. However: because the color is so deep so quickly, be sure to VERY thoroughly wash your hands after use- I always do, but mine were pretty orange for a while!

              If you have pale skin like me and looking for a even tan i WOULD NOT recommend this product. Yes, it gives you a tan but it's not even or natural looking. If you use this on your feet they will look stained and spoted. At least it did on me. It smells like you just got out the tanning bed as well.

                Love this product! I can build color as quickly or slowly as I like, and I always look natural. My only complaint is that, while it goes on mostly odor free, it takes on a somewhat dirty smell (literally dirt).

                    Love this product, it doesn't stain, if you rub it on in a circular motion is won't streak and it has a tinge of orange color to it but it's not that noticeable. It looks like a real tan.
