  • "Best stuff to use when trying to get a tan, but to prevent burns or damage, apply after sunscreen." in 91 reviews
  • "I love Banana Boat Tanning Oil, it smells good and gives me a beautiful deep rich tan. This is best used after you have a tan started while previously using an SPF and probably not best for those with very fair skin color due to it not having any SPF. If you burn or are prone to skin cancer I do not recommend this product without SPF." in 35 reviews

My favorite thing about this product is the smell. It smells amazing and very tropical, taking me to some exotic beach somewhere. Aside from the smell, this product works wonderfully to evenly and effectively bronze my skin. I have fairly dry skin and I’ve noticed that this product causes my skin to be silky and smooth. I also have sensitive skin but I have never had a bad reaction to this product. I typically like to use the SPF4 kind as it leaves myself somewhat protected from the sun. It is also truly waterproof. I’ve gone for a dip in the pool to cool off with this product on and it still remains intact, working to tan and protect my skin. It is a very affordable product and can be found at a variety of locations including CVS target and Walmart. I would highly recommend this product to those looking to achieve a perfect bronze color this summer! I almost always have a few bottles of this in my house. One of my favorite tanning oils! Will be using this product again before summer to get that perfect bronzed glow! Love!

First and foremost, I am a Florida girl and sun worshipping is part of my DNA so I know thing or two about tanning oils. I love Banana Boat Dark Tanning Oil SPF 4, for the same reason that many people don’t like it and that is because it’s oily! This oil is for days when you are committed to soaking in the rays. I drench myself in it and stay oily all afternoon and as I’m getting ready to leave the beach I take a dip in the ocean to rinse off. I don’t recommend for an active beach day with lots of water time and beach volleyball. But I do have to say I love putting this on my legs (sparingly) on a day I’m going to be outside a lot, it gives a little sheen and has some moisturizing properties.
Also! Keep in mind, this is SPF 4 so it’s not going to protect fair skin ladies and let’s be real it’s not really great for anyone to use unless you’re down to risk skin cancer and wrinkles. But hey we only live once right!?

First and foremost, I live in Minnesota so it’s all about getting a tan fast when summer finally comes and the snow is gone. I use this product all summer when I’m out by the pool. It is affordable and found almost anywhere. It smells amazing, like any other banana boat product. When you put it on, you feel like you instantly have a tan. I like this product because it still has some SPF but allows you to get a nice golden tan.

I really like this tanning oil! It has a fantastic smell that’s very tropical smelling. I like the fact that the tanning oil has sunscreen in it however I would have liked for there to be additional tanning lotions that contain higher SPF options. One reason why I like the oil compared to sunscreen is that it helps to moisturize my skin since it’s an oil. Hydrated skin helps to maintain a better tan

Banana boat has always been one of my favorite tanning and sunscreen brands, I love this oil because it’s dry and doesn’t make your hands feel greasy, it gives my skin a beautiful brown glow, and it doesn’t easily come off! Did I mention the smell is AMAZING!!!

AMAZING. It works really well and i could notice a difference after the first time. It leaves your skin darker but not in an unatural way. It looks so good and the only con is that since it is an oil, it leaves your skin oily after you apply but once you go out in the sun it absorbs most of it. Totally worth it!

I was not overly impressed with this ranking oil. I've used multiple brands and this is my least favorite. The fragrance was too strong for me and the bottle steadily leaked. I wasn't too happy when it ruined my favorite beach bag and yes for those wondering, the cap was screwed all the way on, it just leaked.

I love this tanning oil. It makes your skin look so glowy when you use it. I love to use it on days that I’m sitting out by the pool. It has a little bit of SPF in it but I still use a light sun screen under it. This stuff really makes you tan good and protects your skin.

Can I just start out by saying that the smell of this is AMAZING. I bring it with me to the pool, take a quick soak, dry off and apply this all over. It is greasy but it’s an oil. I definitely notice a difference in keeping my bronze color when I don’t use this product outdoors.

This tanning product really works when you're really trying to get a tan  quick. But the one thing I really hate about it is how the oil never soaks up in your skin. It makes your body really slimy and gross. Plus if you plan on going in the water it comes off immediately. The bottle is very poorly packaged and there have been times where the bottle has cracked or broken. The one good thing is that you can find the product everywhere. But I think it should be a little bit cheaper. Somewhere before $4-$5.

Does this make you super greasy? Does it make your skin breakout with acne if you use it on your face? How often do you have to reapply?

When using this product should I put sunscreen on before or after application?
